Re the media report that “Woman (Kathy) who blasted Trudeau gets online threats”; — This should conveniently help Mr. Potato to limit any honest, objective participation in his photo-op traveling road show, to consult the public.

Is this what they mean by “morally bankrupt” ?

I do feel sorry for Kathy Katula, the Toronto Sun reports she is now getting threats from the left.

Drew said, “The ones who support our Ken Doll PM deserve all the misery that he brings.”

Hear, hear!!

Extend this to those who voted for Wynne in Ontario, and those who voted for Notley in Alberta.

The provinces that have put in place a moratorium on fracking have deliberately forgone a revenue stream that would have brought employment and tax revenue. I wonder why the fracking provinces have not insisted on an exemption for fracking induced income in the same way as Quebec has its hydro industry exempted for purposes of calculating equalization payments. It seems to me that a jurisdiction that bans fracking for the moral high would also reject the transfer payments based on the odoriferous revenues generated by such reprehensible practice. Something Mr Wall could look at.

“….i only care for the ones who did not ask for this. ….”

Pretty much it DREW. And when you consider that in the last fifteen years or so, about two-thirds of Canadians cast their federal votes for the NDP, Liberals, or Greens, that means there’s a lot of people out there who deserve what’s coming.

And in Ontario, it’s the same thing on the provincial front. As LISA ROSIE said, “stupid”.

Many people in Canada deserve to be made poor by the libs, i only care for the ones who did not ask for this. The ones who support our Ken Doll PM deserve all the misery that he brings.

Time for a redneck revolution, we’re both moral and superior compared to the cry bully globalist asshats that aren’t even trying to run a country.

The country is heading in the same direction as Venezuela. Alberta needs to out to save its self.

I have always puzzled over the use of the phrase “Moral Superiority”…. Not using the natural resources of our land, to build and maintain a modern society, has always seemed to me to be more like “Terminal Stupidity”…

Trudeau will be remembered,not only as a Brain Dead Moron, who tried hard to ruin our Country but also as the most unqualified person, to ever hold the rains of power of any Country anywhere. His lack of intelligence shows like a neon sign. Remember ‘The Queens Hairs’.

What worries me most, is when Trump starts to throw out the members of the Death Cult from the USA, I think we will see a massive influx of these Heathens into Canada. I can just see Trudeau’s open arms.

What Canada needs is a Canadian Nigal Farage, with a big TREXIT sign.

Bill, Kathy Katula is the Ontario single mom/grandmom who confronted Junior in Peterborough during the “Love Me Do Tour”. She pays $900.00 on her mortgage and $1,200.00 for her hydro. She then has $65.00 left for food. This story has been reported on the Toronto Sun site and on Canoe.ca.

Heh ha, moral superiority from climate commies?

How morally superior is it to punish people using the greatest lie in 2 centuries – or tho drive the poor class into energy poverty – yeah morally superior like a sociopath.

The Eastern provinces with the moratoriums on fracking are living off the avails of western Canada. This attitude is fueling Western Canadian separatism.

Alberta has been fracking for at least 30 years, no real issues encountered, Lots of leftys trying to cash in and claim there water was ruined etc. It is not new technology nor is it unsafe, the environmentalists have been spreading lies and green propaganda about the evils of fracking for years. Most likely the east is scared they might create some jobs and put people to work, possibly lose out on the free extortion money Ottawa steals from the western resource based economy’s. It is all about keeping the HAVE NOT STATUS FOR THE FREE MONEY . Never has been about jobs just free money they have grown to think they are somehow entitled to.
