WATCH: Ambrose hammers Trudeau on ISIS fight

Brian LilleyArchive

Conservative Party Leader Rona Ambrose took the fight against ISIS into the House of Commons on Tuesday, pressing the government on the pullout of Canada's six CF-18 fighter jets.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau waited until Parliament was in recess to announce his restructured plan for Canada's involvement in the fight against ISIS, a plan that is heavy on training but won't see Canada bombing targets or providing air support for Kurdish fighters on the ground.

In her first question to the government Ambrose asked Trudeau why he was pulling Canada's warplanes home after more than a year of effective fighting against ISIS, adding that the fight against the Islamist terrorist organization needed to continue.

"Because ISIS is still enslaving women and children; it is still throwing gays and lesbians off rooftops; it is still murdering anyone who has a different belief system," Ambrose said. "The fight against ISIS is a just fight, but the Prime Minister is taking us out of the fight against ISIS. If he will not fight terrorists, just when will he ever fight?"

Trudeau has relied heavily on kind words spoken by Canada's allies about the new mission while refusing to admit what everyone knows, that in private the Americans and others asked for our planes to stay and for Canada to do more.

"The fact is this government and the party we represent has always understood that ISIS represents a threat to innocents in the region and to stability and security around the world. That is why Canada has an important role to play," Trudeau said. "The comprehensive and strong plan we put forward last week that highlights the role that Canada can play is exactly what Canadians expect us to do."

During his announcement that the CF-18 fighter jets were coming home, Trudeau said training was something Canada was better suited for, almost as if he forgot Canada's long history of noble fighter pilots going back to Billy Bishop and the invention of modern air armies.

I really believe that signing and sending Petitions to the Government (and even debating in the House of Commons) with hopes of influencing their decisions, is a strategy that has no value in the current National political environment in Canada. The Government’s apparent plan of action is to ignore public involvement or opinion, to import and/or buy large blocks of voters to ensure a Liberal vote, to manipulate and distort fact through an ignorant and deceitful News Media, and to continuously blame others for any problem they face or cannot resolve.
As the boy said, this is 2015 (now 2016) and a different means to influence Government policy/decisions needs to be developed and quickly implemented. I wish I knew what.

Well what can you expect from a brat born with a silver spoon on his mouth and a coward for a father (remember that during WW2 he rode the streets on Montreal wearing a German army helmet)?
It should also be noted that his grandfather (by some accounts) seems to have been a big time bootlegger during prohibition and that was how he made his money, thus his respect for criminal conduct such as what ISIS is accused of.

I’m against joining Obummer in incompetent military ventures.

I would hold off until the Republicans get in power in a few month from now; who know how to do war, and understand it’s purpose, which is to win, not prolong into perpetuity.

However my reasons are different from Turdo, who is an emotion-based lefty-irrational ideologue.

I look at it from the point of strategy, data, analytics, intelligence, efficiency and tactics.

These are skills you’ll see in people like Trump or Cruz; and not in the cute teddybear-huggin, fuzzy-wuzzy, safe-spacer Twerpdeau. He is in a special needs under-league of his own.

Well put Mr. McDonnell, Does Rona know whats at stake here? …….,

James, I think Ambrose is more worried about the reputation and re-building of the Conservative Party. Somebody else can work on that stuff as far as I am concerned. It is the job of Ambrose to point out threats to our country and so far I don’t see her doing enough. She should be putting the hammer to Trudeau every day in Question Period and later in the hallway media scrums. Just my opinion.

Just found the Rebel via Infowars a couple days ago and I’m really liking it!

Canada shouldn’t be in this fight as the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and other NATO members are using ISIS as a proxy army to topple the Assad regime. We are a nation of 35 million people who neighbor a world super power, we don’t need an army and should exit NATO. Putin seems to be the only real world leader who is trying to fight ISIS.

I wish this moron of a Prime Minister would stop saying " Canadians expect him to do this or that "
He does not speak for me and i wish the idiot would stop lumping all Canadians as agreeing with his decisions .
That term i first heard yesterday . manspeak, fits the little boy to T ., he speaks a lot but says nothing.
This man( Trudeau) is much like Obama , his first concerns are for Muslims ,Canadians second

I listen to Trudeau talk but nothing comes out yet people still clap….we know full well Rona Ambrose bitch slapped him with that question. she needs to put on that tight leather outfit again, get a whip and make him her bitch.

Ambrose has been fairly soft since she took up her position as interim leader. My first and current impression is she wants to portray the Conservatives as a more warm and fuzzy political party instead of the often reported cold, calculating SOB’s under Harper. I think she should step up her game and start to incrementally turn up the heat on the musloid invaders disguised as refugees. She is probably worried about media backlash but I don’t care about that. The time is now to hammer Trudeau about the importation of Islamic terrorism and cost, future musloid threat at military bases and communities around the country, language and school training, job numbers for immigrants, the war masquerading as humanitarian mission, Canada’s status in the world, billions given away for climate change new world government, ballooning budget deficit and other irresponsible spending. All she has to do is show dumb dumb what is going on in Europe and point out that it is being imported.

Why is Ambrose holding back? Waiting for a new leader is not the answer. Get to work Ambrose!

Liberals have always been cowards. This move by junior and the Liberals is merely a manifestation of that cowardice.

Give JT some slack – he has 13 mosques in his riding and he answers to the clerics at those mosques. During the election campaign he was told he had the Muslim votes in Canada and he is simply working to keep those votes . If Obama felt it appropriate to kiss the hand of the Saudi King I’m sure JT would happily kiss his @ss !
commented 2016-02-17 14:07:47 -0500
So disappointed at Ambrose, not even asking the proper question by far, how did she ever get chosen as interim leader? As pointed out here, why not hammer him on all the refugees coming here unvetted, etc. We can’t afford to bring more in, so many Canadians need our help instead, this muslim so-called pm in a sub human for changing our beautiful country, and NO ONE TO POINT IT OUT TO HIM. WE NEED EZRA TO RUN AS OUR CONSERVATIVE LEADER, AT LEAST HE SAYS IT LIKE IT IS.
commented 2016-02-17 13:37:58 -0500
I’m Canadian and I didn’t want your plan with 3x the price tag as the fighter jets. Not to mention putting more of our troops on the ground and into a more direct involvement with combat. This isn’t what Canadians expect Justin, it’s your world view not ours.
commented 2016-02-17 13:08:02 -0500
Lad Reme, actually it was only 27% of Canadians who voted for this twit. 31% of Canadians never bothered to vote. 39% of 69 is 27%.
commented 2016-02-17 12:10:10 -0500
Wrong again Trudeau, only 39% of Canadians, (probably less now they have seen your agenda unfold), expect you to run, like the coward you are, and pull out of the battle.

Trudeau you are unfit to run this Country, you are mentally unstable and a danger to society. Tell your Muslim friends to shove off and then do the honorable thing, RETIRE.

Ahhh poor Justy getting chastised by the opposition. The video cut off as Justy was sitting down. If it showed him when he sat down he was pissed off in all his arrogance. It almost looked like he was about to bobble head for a moment. I like Rona, she plays hardball.
commented 2016-02-17 09:51:59 -0500
Isn’t that a blatant lie? I don’t think the partners discussed Canada’s role with JT, and even if they did, snubbing Canada at their tactics session sure sent a message that they were not impressed with JT’s new role fighting ISIS.

When it comes to fighting and war, turdo a doo flies the same banner as his old man: a red chicken.
commented 2016-02-17 03:00:54 -0500
Notice how he never mentioned the same innocents. Leaves it open for interpretation, the innocents could just as easily be the terrorist organizations in this Psychopaths eyes.

How embarrassing is this little Pickr !

As usual, the zoolander said nothing in response.. NOTHING! Might as well put our own army together and go exterminate them.

Trudeau gaslights.

SARAH SILKIN commented,
“What has the Vietnam war, the Cold War, the Afghanistan war, and many other wars told you?”

Those wars only serve to highlight the folly of pulling out before the job is done. How would you suggest helping the Syrians, by transporting the entire population to Canada?

I too wish the Conservatives would get their act together. Ambrose looks like the best of the bunch, and she can’t be the new leader for the party. Who are they hiding who has any gonads?
commented 2016-02-16 22:21:47 -0500
I agree with others that the headline is deceiving. Ambrose didn’t “hammer” Trudeau. Not even close. These headlines don’t serve the Rebel very well. Also it doesn’t serve the Rebel to try and pump up the “conservative” party into something that it is not. The sad fact is the “conservative” party is a party of useless CUCKS and it has been for years now! Stephen Harper brought in over half a million Muslim’s all in the name of VOTE BUYING!

The Rebel should be hammering the “conservatives” on their weak immigration platform and other issues where they are weak. There is nothing that a conservative media company can do to change the liberals but the Rebel could have a positive effect on un-cucking the “conservative” party. For example when Donald Trump proposed a temporary ban on Muslim immigration – Rona Ambrose condemned his remarks. Is this woman conservative? She should cross the isle and join the Liberals.
commented 2016-02-16 22:10:13 -0500
No that is not what Canadians expect the Canadian Military to do Canadians’ expected the F-18’s to stay in the mission until the Combat was won you Doufus!
commented 2016-02-16 21:36:20 -0500
John Morrison, I have to agree with you on the headlines. They are often very misleading & not at all what I expected after watching the videos. Ambrose really got nowhere, all Trudeau did was reiterate what she said & repeat his platitudes. I wouldn’t call her questioning “hammering” as you put it Brian.
commented 2016-02-16 21:24:32 -0500
Hammer him on the god damned invasion of our country, not six jets in our, extremely confused, foreign policy.
commented 2016-02-16 21:19:20 -0500
Mr. Trudeau you don’t speak for me so STOP including me in with “all” Candians. I wanted the bombing to continue & the Americans are steaming mad you are pulling out of that mission. So who are the allies you consulted with, it was certainly not the Americans. You are putting our troops in far greater danger because ISIS is starting to use chemical weapons against the Kurds on the front line & that’s exactly where our trainer troops will be according to one of your generals. So who are you fooling, other liberals & CBC watchers but not us.
