CPC MPs filibuster Liberals' undemocratic reforms

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Justin Trudeau's war on democracy and accountability has taken a new form: Parliamentary procedure reform, and not in a good way.

The liberals are trying to make some drastic changes to the business of government, first by doing a study to examine and recommend changes to House of Commons procedures. But the study will be fake because the fix is in. The recommendations were already part of an earlier discussion paper and, of course, they're awful.

The changes include introducing electronic voting, removing Friday House of Commons sittings, changing how opposition days and private members’ bills are handled, limiting time allocated for debate in the house and limiting debate in committees like the very one where these broad sweeping changes will be rammed through.

But those aren't even the worst changes.

Watch as I explain how hard Trudeau and the Liberals are working at not working, and show you how Conservative MP’s are fighting back filibustering the committee, seizing control and running down the clock to block the Liberals from voting on their motion.

Alberta is in a jobs and unemployment crisis, federal debt is spiralling out of control, illegal immigration is overwhelming our border towns, refugees are struggling to integrate and our allies are suffering terror attacks.

Yet, the liberals want to do less work when Canada needs them to work harder than ever before. Earlier this week it was revealed that Trudeau's family Christmas vacation to the Aga Khan’s private island cost Canadian taxpayers $127K.

The very least a silver spoon millionaire like Trudeau could do is actually show up to work and pretend to earn his taxpayer funded time off.

Keith and Helen Harvey I would agree with that. The biggest obstacle that stands in the way of globalism is democracy.

I cannot understand how he maintains his popularity. Those cardboard cutouts are the absolute height of megalomania and conceit. He utterly makes me ill every time I see that cheesy face.

Did you notice the life-size cardboard cut outs of Trudeau are made in the USA?

Yet more indicators Jihadi Justin is determined to push through his “Dictraitorship”!

Andrew Mirlac said, “All these “changes” they are making to allow bills to be “rammed” through, Can and will be used by conservatives.”

And the left will scream bloody murder at the Conservatives for doing exactly what they did, just like the left in the US is screaming at Trump for using the executive order, the same executive order than Obama used almost exclusively. Turn-about is fair play, they say.

Canadian Mongrel said, “Adam and Mark. Those life size cardboard cutouts will be great for plinking with a .22 or pellet rifle. Glad you mentioned them.”

Excellent idea. Now I wish I owned a gun.

Dollars to donuts this Friday off thing has Islamic undertones. I guess the newly converted PM and all his Muslim MP’s are resentful they have to be in the House when they could be in Friday prayer listening to real hate speech. Sick.

Justin is a dictator and is making his father look tame. Yes, it should all be live feed for all Canadians to see. I can’t believe what this government attempts to do behind closed doors. Trudeau wants sharia. Democracy is not his friend.
Good on ya Tammie.
Good on ya Beverly Nate. Everyone has some homework to do sending these MP’s emails.
commented 2017-03-24 09:33:15 -0400
Beverely Nate, thank you for providing the e-mail addresses. I sent a message as you suggested and cc’d Michelle Rempel. I didn’t see it last night, otherwise, I would have acted sooner. I copied and pasted areas of Sheila’s report and added my own comments as well.
This is what I sent:
Subject line: Undemocratic Parliamentary Reform
“Dear Honourable Members,

I strongly object to the government’s plans to further reduce Parliamentary accountability. Canadians were not properly consulted or allowed to vote on this very important issue. The government has a tendency to create policy and spend tax dollars without transparency. This smells of totalitarianism. I won’t stand for our democratic process to be undermined in this way.

Alberta is in a jobs and unemployment crisis, federal debt is spiraling out of control, illegal immigration is overwhelming our border towns, refugees are struggling to integrate and our allies are suffering terror attacks.

Yet, the liberals want to do less work when Canada needs them to work harder than ever before. Earlier this week it was revealed that Trudeau’s family Christmas vacation to the Aga Khan’s private island cost Canadian taxpayers $127K.

The liberals are trying to make some drastic changes to the business of government, first by doing a study to examine and recommend changes to House of Commons procedures.

As it is, PM Trudeau attendance in the House is shameful. Now he is looking for Friday’s off!? Is Mr. Trudeau looking for a religious accommodation, so that he can answer the call to prayer? I would like to know when he converted to Islam.

Undemocratic Parliamentary Reform is not the Canadian way!

The government has been caught using mafia code words in their government e-mails “strict omerta” for reinstating funding to UNRWA. This UN agency has ties to Hamas and anti-Semitic teachings. The rolled this out quickly, and did not inform the official opposition. Prime Minister Harper wisely cut funding to this organization, and this Liberal government hid the fact from Canadians.
So, how many other government policies and tax dollars fall under “strict omerta”?

Stop the insanity on the Hill."

Sincerely,
Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt

I think Trudeau needs to ignore the call to prayer on Friday’s…let him kneel on his own time! He should be in the House of Commons more, not less.
Elton Braun, you’re hilarious!

And the dictatorship gets stronger. We are not going to make it to the next election, this country will be completely surrendered by 2019. There won’t be any democratic political structure left soon, Trudeau will have totalitarian rule soon. As I have stated before, the closer we get to the next election he will be picking up the pace on his destruction of Canada. The M103 was a pivotal point in time, get ready for the collapse.
commented 2017-03-24 00:17:30 -0400
To be fair this is Trudeau’s first full time job so the hours must be absolutely gruelling. And sometimes people ask him questions that he has to think about so he probably goes home with a headache quite often.
This is all so stereotypically liberal even Chrétien must be very impressed.

Whatever changes are made to parliamentary rules/protocol, PM selfie will not consider himself bound by them. WE have a wild child in the PMO

Don’t forget his cardboard cutouts that we paid for and are now for sale in Amazon for $49.00 + $14.90 shipping. This Government is the most pathetic I have ever seen, well at least since old Trudeau Sr. was in power.

An entrepreneur could buy one of those cardboard cut-outs for what, C$65.00?
I don’t know if there any copyright fees or whatnot – since as you say we’ve already paid for them – but you could reproduce the cut-outs as full size targets, then sell them. They would be used for improving one’s firearms, archery, axe and knife throwing skills and proficiency. Justin would be getting his end by stealing our taxes anyway and they would likely do very well out here in Western Canada, like where I live in the BC interior.
Vancouverites would probably be using them for whatever degenerate filth they usually get up to in Mayor Doorknob’s, Sin City, but hey, a buck’s a buck.
Thanks for the heads-up.

Sheila, excellent report.
Like you, I would like to see the Conservative members fight this.

The Liberals are robbing us blind & now want to evade accountability in the House of Commons – Shameful!

Leftists always forget that the political pendulum always swings both ways. All these “changes” they are making to allow bills to be “rammed” through, Can and will be used by conservatives. The irony will be great.

Gerry, Tater Tot has never worked a day in his life.

Good point George!

I totally missed the fact that Friday is the day of prayer to Satan. I think that is part of it, because the extra-long weekend could easily be Monday, which most people would think for the day off. I think you are onto something.
commented 2017-03-23 19:32:33 -0400
Little Joe, our very own fascist dick-tater-tot, needs us to show some religious tolerance towards him, he needs Fridays off because after all it is the Muslim’s equivalent of a Sabbath. And don’t dare criticize him for that, lest you now be quelled.
“many Muslim countries, such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bangladesh, consider Friday a non-work day” – Wikipedia

Maybe Shiela could tell us exactly how many days they work now, then deduct 52 fridays
