Trudeau Liberals feel the heat ahead of five byelections

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

On Monday, Canadians will vote in five byelections. While it’s unlikely any of the seats will change hands, a byelection always gives us a sense of how voters view the governing party.

The Conservatives will likely hold on to the two Calgary area seats, but it will be interesting to watch the NDP performance in these byelections as an indicator of Alberta Premier Rachel Notley’s unpopularity.

Last week, a Forum poll showed the Conservatives enjoying their first lead since the last general election. Will that trend continue up to these byelections?

Watch as I break down which riding is likely to deliver the closest contest, and show one that might give an indication of whether or not the Conservative Party is ready to win back seats lost in 2015, seats they need if they wish to form government.

Trudeau’s carbon footprint is paid by the taxpayer, he could care less about the environment. Hypocritical; UN sell-out, and can’t be bothered to deal with real Canadian issues.

Well said Marty Ashfield and Sally Citizen. He Should have been to the border to throw some $$$ around instead of sending it off to Africa or who knows where. I don’t understand ridings that vote perpetually for the Libs and expect a better result this time. That is pure insanity.

SALLY CITIZEN said, “Instead of jetting off campaigning JT should be jetting off to Manitoba to address the flood of illegal refugees crossing the border into Canada, at his invitation, I might add.” “His job is to represent Canada & Canadians first.”
Yes Sally you are absolutely right, except for the fact that you are presuming that this jerk bin Trudeau cares for Canada and Canadians even a little bit. Since when did he give a dam about Canada or Canadians? If he did, he would not have given away millions of OUR tax dollars to other countries for frivolous reasons (just to make himself look good). He would spend his time trying to fix all the problems we have here at home, not jetting around the world throwing OUR money at dictators and UN despots just so he can win their blessings and affect his job prospects later, (after he is thrown out of Canadian politics).
PM material? Justin bin Trudeau? Ha, ha, ha, ha! He is nothing if not a despicable scumbag and despot himself, and he surrounds himself with similar thinking and acting scumbags called Liberal ministers.
But what did you or anyone expect? He is after all a “Feminist”.

Yes Peter, the very same thought ran through my mind. I was using the “reasonable politician” standard rather than trying to imply that Junior had any sense.

These elected criminals will say anything and dance to any tune to fool the masses. While they are using our money to destroy our rights and freedoms. Their actions speak louder than the lies they continue to spew. I guess people enjoy being lied to and deceived by a bunch globalist crooks.

Robert McClelland said, “With Wynne’s approval ratings at new all time lows, you would think Junior would have the sense to stay as far away from her as he could.”

Using “Junior” and “sense” in the same sentence is a contradiction.

Instead of jetting off campaigning JT should be jetting off to Manitoba to address the flood of illegal refugees crossing the border into Canada, at his invitation, I might add.
His job is to represent Canada & Canadians first. Political partisanship should come after his job as PM. One would think he has more than enough to keep him busy as captain of the titanic, I mean PM of Canada.

The sagging fortunes of the Ontario Liberal party may well rub off on the Federal party. Junior and Wynne are joined at the hip policy wise. It could make the difference in Markham.

Apparently Junior is appearing with Wynne today at a Ford engine plant for an announcement. Aww, isn’t that cute? They’re pretetending they actually care about factory jobs. I guess Junior isn’t going to tell them today how they need to “transition” to his new “alternate economy”. With Wynne’s approval ratings at new all time lows, you would think Junior would have the sense to stay as far away from her as he could.

Andrew Stephenson that is pretty much what it says in the article, there was more to it.

What Chris said about Montreal – brings back a thought invoked by an Alberta Frenchman friend – a real Albertan & Canadian by the way – that an IQ test accompany all ballots – provincially & federally – particularly in Queerbec, where “inbreeding is rampant” – his words, not mine. That would completely explain TruDope’s intellect! … but I still think Just-in’s dad was Castro – seeing his mommy was such saw horse.

There’s no real reason to “feel the heat” – all five of the seats being challenged are “safe seats” (2 CPC, and 3 Liberal). It’s very unlikely that even one of the five will turn over – the likeliest to switch is the Markham one, but with current boundaries, even that one voted for Iggy in 2011, the low water mark for the Libs.

My hope:
Conservative 102 seats
Liberal 181 seats

Reality:
Conservative 100 seats
Liberal 183 seats
-———————————
Your hope is my hope…!!
But the reality is “it matters not who votes but only who counts the votes”.
People who count the votes should be selected like jury duty… Randomly and with extreme prejudice.!

Monday a message will be sent to this profligate anti-west unCanadian Ottawa Junta.

Have to add. I always think it is unfair to call Paul Martin, Mr. Dithers. Even though I am a conservative by nature. Old “I Can’t Count” Clark dithered more than any P/M. He was still dithering as a Sr. cabinet minister under Mulroney. Then as leader of the rump P/C’s he continued to dither. Clark is the one and only Mr. Dithers, which lead to his inability to count, of Canadian politicians; not Martin.

I just hope the conservatives don’t shoot themselves in the head electing a leader like they did in 1976. If Wagner or Mulroney had won then, the 1980 election would not have happened and we would not be stuck with the Papa Doc constitution which removed our freedoms. But no, they compromised on ‘I Can’t Count’ Clarke…

Junior has indeed pulled out all the stops, he has once again promised to legalize marijuana. He has the pot head vote locked up, but on the other hand the disputed seats aren’t in Vancouver

Trudeau’s brother, Alexandre Communist Trudeau, is doing a book tour in the local area, promoting his family’s communist support for China and their forced abortions.
This is the guy who goes on CBC and says he’s the non-political Trudeau!

Don’t you think this is a ‘promote Justin’ tour? You betcha.

“Pride before the fall”
This is like a report card which monitors the progress or the popularity of the political parties… It will either jerk them back into a state of middle-class reality or propel them beyond the limits of their egos.!!
The worst part is if Rachel and her crew as well as Trudeau and his crew know they’re on their way out they will double down on their efforts to bring the country to ruination which is demanded by their Masters for payment.
