The “Ford Factor” comes to Ontario: Celebrating “The People’s Win”

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

Winning!

After 15 years of scandal-plagued rule, the Ontario Liberals were crushed on Thursday.

And boisterous members of Ford Nation couldn’t be happier.

Oh boy, Andrew is conflating again.

Waste of time pointing out the obvious conflict between Islam’s “religious” practices which are against the law here in Canada.

Anyway Andrew, it is my hope you get to experience some of this up close and personal….

“Freedom of religion is freedom of religion. If you have freedom of religion, that includes freedom to worship as a Muslim. No asterisks. "

Andrew that is absurd, We are under no obligation to accept a parallel political system."

The question isn’t whether you like them or not or want them to be there, it’s whether they have a right to be there. And, as it turns out, they do. Because we’re a free country with a constitution that protects those freedoms of association and religion.

It’s inevitable that the demographics of Canada will change over time. They’ve never been particularly static.

Robert Greeley, all good articles at Spencer Fernando.com.
Our country is a mess and the masses are too blinded by lies and subterfuge to see the oncoming train.

A charity does not qualify for ’charitable ’ status if it is political.

You should not be allowed to gain and hide behind our ‘religious’ status if your group is a political system. We are naive and stupid to allow it.

“Freedom of religion is freedom of religion. If you have freedom of religion, that includes freedom to worship as a Muslim. No asterisks. "

Andrew that is absurd, We are under no obligation to accept a parallel political system. Its wrong and a threat to our laws and our peaceful sovereign country. There is nothing that will make me accept political Islam in my country. No law, no coercion, no threat and no sentence. Its wrong, and I will never stand with Islam as long as its purpose here is to take over and grow their caliphate whether by violence or ‘peaceful’ population jihad. I will fight against this demographic murder of Canada until the problem is fixed and balanced or eradicated. What the government and the Islamists are undertaking, is never going to be okay. I will never accept political Islam.
I love apostates.

Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson, you stated “No, I’m not deflecting. You’re complaining about credibility, and I’m arguing that it doesn’t matter.” You are deflecting. You claimed you had a PhD and I challenged that repeatedly and you won’t back it up with any kind of proof. Therefore anything you say is not to be believed, regardless. Back up your claim.
"

So, if I told you “water is wet”, you wouldn’t believe me?

Or would you be able to independently verify that what I said is true?

And, if you can do it with very simple claims, why not more complicated ones?

“There is a board that determines the price for milk(price fixing) and the consumer is the one that pays.
And it is much more than the “cost”. The consumer subsidizes directly.”

Umm… that’s not a subsidy. That’s a regulated price. Paying the full price of something is not the same as governments handing out tax dollars to supplement prices that don’t cover the cost of production.

Whether you agree with price regulation or not, it’s not a subsidy.

Andrew, your understanding of Islamic blasphemy laws is sorely lacking. Last time I checked, we are not living in the Middle East. Theocracy is in direct opposition to Western civilization.
Obviously, calls for killing jews, gays, christians, non-believers and apostates is problematic & orthodox muslims worldwide heed that call.

Clearly you are equating Islam with the right to support terrorism under the guise of religious freedom…why do that?

Your claim, “It’s a clarification of existing hate crime laws, and we’ve already established you support the existence of hate-crime laws. Such laws must be applied fairly and universally.”

Wrong Andrew, M-103 failed to define Islamophobia, intentionally vague and non-specific. This is calculated, and repeated all over the West. Research what the British have deemed this to be….what police are using as their guide.

What is Islamophobia? What is Chritophobia? What is Buddhism-phobia? What is Hinduismphobia?

from the troll “We don’t subsidize. Supply management does many things, but among them is ensuring consumers pay the full cost of milk.”

1) Harper guided Canada through that glabal recession and we faired better tahn any country."

Although we still got struck very hard. “Severe recession” is better than “near-total collapse”, but it’s not the “prosperity” Peter claimed, is it?

“2) ?”
This one is self explanatory. Trump’s a conservative. Supposedly this means trade is booming – except that he’s aggressively tariffing it with the intent to reduce it.

“3) rational justified concern over political Islam. You can’t find a more multicultural country than Canada. Xenophobia, another stupid word that does NOT apply . especially in Canada. You make yourself look foolish Andrew. "

Freedom of religion is freedom of religion. If you have freedom of religion, that includes freedom to worship as a Muslim. No asterisks.

“M-103 is an insidious precursor to blaspehmy laws created by the Muslim Brotherhood, UN – OIC and Islamists within the Canadian government. "

It’s a clarification of existing hate crime laws, and we’ve already established you support the existence of hate-crime laws. Such laws must be applied fairly and universally.

Andrew, criticizing Christianity is not illegal, it happens every day.

M-103 is an insidious precursor to blaspehmy laws created by the Muslim Brotherhood, UN – OIC and Islamists within the Canadian government.
Read Islamic texts to become familiar with Sharia law.

Canadian Laws are not being enforced at Al-Quds gatherings across Canada. All Western nations have turned a blind eye to the people showing up promoting Hezbollah, Hamas and declaring “we are all Hezbollah”. Incitement laws are also not enforced. Inciting murder and attacks on jews, gays, non-believers.
Obviously, you are fine with this. I would ask why?

There are also reformist muslims who speak out every year and ask the same questions I do. They denounce the annual hatefest and have asked the government to enforce the law at these events.

The facts is that if a person looks through political history in Canada (and the US) from the municipal to the federal level, at least three things always prosper when a conservative government is in power:
1. the economy
2. trade
3. freedom of speech, religion & association "

1) 2008 in Canada, under Harper?
2) Trumps trade tariffs?
3) xenophobia against Muslims?

Andrew since you blamed oil prices for Alberta doing poorly under NDP please explain why Alberta is not doing nay better now that they are at $65??? LMAO! :

Which metric do you wish to use?

Just looking at jobs, Alberta’s unemployment dropped from 7.8 to 6.2% May 16- May 18, and full time employment increased from 1832k to 1919k (+87,000 jobs) in those two years. Which is to say, it’s not doing poorly at all. (scaled for population, that’s equivalent to the US creating 6.4 million jobs, much higher than its actual creation of 4.8).

Andrew Stephenson depends on the substance of the argument, how does having a PHD in say biology make you more informed about climate?: ’

It doesn’t. That’s why you have to evaluate my comments on their own merit. At the same time, you should not just blindly trust what someone with a more pertinent education has to say either. Tim Ball, for example, does, but he also makes a living selling his opinion – a financial conflict of interest that may affect his opinions – scientists can have personal biases as well. His statements should thus not be viewed as inherently more trustworthy than mine – you must verify them independently regardless of who says it.

“If you support this group being tossed away for hate speech, does that mean you support M103?”

Andrew, is taking exception to political Islam, the same as calling for death to Jews, in your mind?"

Free speech is free speech.

“Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt commented 15 hours ago
Andrew is still apologizing for political Islam, a theocracy. M-103 is a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood via Iqra Khalid and the Liberal Party. Criticizing an ideology should not be illegal. "

So you’re happy to support the supposed “war on Christianity”, as protected under the principles that criticizing an ideology should not be illegal?

“Regarding getting rid of sex ed, in schools. I wonder if Ford has any plans to object to this use of taxpayer money ? Damn I just hate that we have to fund this crap.”
The education system is meant to prepare children to live in the real world. That real world contains gay people, and acknowledging that is hardly “crap”.

The comments on that thread are hilarious. So much triggered fail. lol.

Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson, you deflect yet again.”

No, I’m not deflecting. You’re complaining about credibility, and I’m arguing that it doesn’t matter.

Simple question, Common. Please answer this before we go any further.

Consider this statement:
“Water is wet”.

Does my personal credibility affect the veracity of that statement? Is water not actually wet because I don’t prove I have a PhD? Does that even make sense to you?

Liza Rosie….Tks for that Mclean’s Sept. 1, 2017 article on Supply Management.

To me, it verifies two items:
1. The reason Bernier isn’t Leader of the Opposition. (Fake Conservatives voted for Scheer.)
2. It tells us that Scheer is one of few Politicians that could make a Policy that both the Left and the Right completely disagree with. (Supporting Supply Management.)
commented 2018-06-11 08:59:39 -0400
Right on Peter.
Not only will the liberals be locked out of power for years, but Conservatives have to spend the first term fixing what the liberals ruined. Conservatives are not uncompassionate monsters as the left tries to paint us. To the left I say, pay attention to what Doug Ford does in service TO the people of Ontario in the coming months, not the trash talk of the media part , and be honest with yourselves. Wynne was never there “in service”. She was always there to indoctrinate and dictate an agenda that was strangling the economy of Ontario, and the spirit of the people. I am so happy for my home province, that it will finally have a breathing chance. I am very grateful that we have regained another conservative province. Well done ontario.

When the Conservatives win, the leftie socialist dimwits even win because the Conservative rule to benefit all Canadians. The Liberals/Democrats rule to ruin the country to benefit themselves, line their own pockets.

Anyone looking at recorded history with an objective eye will see that is the case, but never expect a leftist to look at history with honesty. Honesty is not a word associated with the left in today’s world.

LEE HORSMAN commented 10 hours ago
Three things need to happen before Premier-Elect Ford’s Progressive-Conservative government can allow the Ontario Liberals official party status:
1.) Kathleen Wynne must resign as a MPP and get lost, forever.
2.) The Liberal candidate must win the by-election to replace Kathleen Wynne as a MPP.
3.) There needs to be another by-election in a riding not presently held by a Liberal, and the Liberal candidate needs to win that by-election.
In other words, if the Ontario Liberals want to regain official party status, the ONLY way they can be allowed to do that is if they earn it the old-fashioned way; by winning the MINIMUM number of seats in elections.
The people of Ontario have spoken, and Premier Ford would be making a significant mistake if he were to over-rule them.


Exactly right Lee. I hope Doug Ford doesn’t change the rules – it wouldn’t be done for PC’s if they were in the same boat!

Thanks for that article Ron J. , Clemens suggests that ,
“The federal government should deregulate the production and marketing of supply-managed commodities, and tariffs should be abolished on imports of dairy and poultry products. Combined, these two measures would offer all consumers and all producers in Canada a wider, more competitive market to buy and sell.”
He also promotes a program to ease dairy farmers out of their safe space and into the free market.
I don’t like to promote Mcleans but considering Clemens who penned the article is from the Fraser Institute I will. He and co author, LeRoy have good points.
