Why is THIS kind of “intolerance” rewarded in PC Party? MPP targets gender identity resolution

David MenziesMission Specialist

A press release from PC MPP for Carleton, Goldie Ghamari, landed on my desk the other day that demonstrated the sheer unmitigated gall of the kind we described in this space before when covering her candidacy during the election.

You may recall Ghamari was a candidate with a questionable social media presence that she’d like us to forget. 

And while she’s supposedly a true-blue conservative, a few years back, she was candy-apple red Liberal, attacking Stephen Harper and calling him an embarrassment to all Canadians.

The press release I received, condemns Tanya Granic Allen’s Resolution 4, the non-binding call for any mention of gender identity to be removed from the sex-ed curriculum, which was overwhelmingly passed at the recent Ontario PC convention.

Ghamari states unequivocally that she’ll speak out against the resolution and encourage the Premier to explore options to remove it going forward at next year’s convention.

Saving the best for last, Ghamari says:

“As MPP for Carleton, I am, and always will be, a strong voice for everyone in the riding of Carleton, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, or any other factor. There is no room for intolerance or disrespect anywhere in Ontario or across Canada.”

No room for intolerance or disrespect?

Al Peterson,

Obviously fact – otherwise Doug Ford wouldn’t have folded so quickly. Perhaps you need to leave The Rebel once in a while and see what people are saying elsewhere. Doug Ford’s Twitter account was on fire from Canadians bashing him over this issue. It was glorious and again, he knew he would be fucked if he didn’t do what he did – kick Tanya to the curb. Again.

liza Rosie,

There was actually a huge backlash across all of Canada.
Evidence? Or opinion?

…due the fact that she is a horrible woman and Canadians will not tolerate her or the changes she wants to make to this country.

FACT,” huh? You are once again demonstrating the Third Pillar of Leftiedom- the refusal to exercise discernment. Your opinion is not a fact or even empirical evidence. But keep repeating the lie and maybe someone will believe it.

One last thing on your leftist twisting of definitions- she does not wan to make changes to the country. She wants to prevent the psychologically unbalanced from doing so, Hence the term conservative. She wants to conserve what is right and moral.

What are Muslims doing as members of political parties? Being Muslims they can only believe in one thing, the dogma of Islam. Political leaders like them because it makes them look good and can possibly gain them more votes from the Muslim community. Why are Muslims given the right to vote, when all their votes will only go to the Party that will help them in their quest to dominate their world.

Muslims are in this country for two reasons only………Convert or Kill Canadians. Wake up and smell the roses.

liza Rosie,

There was actually a huge backlash across all of Canada. It wasn’t just the “rot in his party”. The majority of Canadians do not support anything that Tanya has to say.

The resolution Tanya Granic Allen put forward was not for change, it was for maintaining healthy sexuality and not teaching that a deviation in sexuality was something to aspire to. It is something that affects a very small portion of society. It is largely a mental health issue and not something to normalize for some strange sense of inclusivity. It has become a fad. There will be lawsuits. To insist that all children need this information is indoctrination/brainwashing, NOT information that will help them grow into happy adults. Keeping it out of the curriculum was not too much to ask. Doug knows it. He was bullied by the rot in his party.

Persian Cat is an insulting opportunist who should be allowed to show us who she is with her free speech. Doug however could remind her that insulting Christians was rather rude as a representative of the people. What Tanya said was far less offensive in my opinion, since political Islam is in fact a problem in many countries around the world and becoming one here. Muslims who want to be a part of our structure and value system can appreciate that. Doug ousted Tanya and so to be fair should oust Ghamari.

Ezra has said that the rebel is not loyal to any party. The rebel is about being conservative. So the rebel will back a conservative point of view regardless of which party it comes from. Conversely, the rebel will go after a point of view that they do not agree with, regardless of who says it. So when a right wing party needs a kick in the ass, the rebel will give it to them.

I’m intolerant of those I won’t tolerate and disrespectful to those I don’t respect and nobody will make me respect or tolerate what I know is stupid or perverted.

“I agree in principle that it is the Rebel’s job to go after Scheer and the Conservatives; but a balanced hand would be nice. "

A “balanced hand”, DCC?

But surely, isn’t that what Scheer-the-steer thinks he’s doing?

Don said, “There is an element of sour grapes with David and Ezra over Scheer …”

I have found that David & Ezra come down on the Conservatives if there is something they see is wrong with the party and/or an MP (MPP) in the party just as they do with the Liberals and NDP. Difference is that there is more the “come down upon” with the Liberals and NDP.

That is call holding them accountable just as the they do the Liberals and NDP.

If they were not to do that, then no doubt you would accuse Ezra and David or just being partisan hacks just like they accuse the CBC of doing so. But in the case of the CBC, they really are partisan hacks that attack only the Conservatives and cover for the Liberals and NDP.

So, you demean Ezra and David by calling (without any evidence) that it is “sour grapes” because of how the Conservatives treat The Rebel.

Don, it is you who is a partisan hack from what I have read of your comments on this website.

Look at the bright side. At least Patrick Brown is not running the party.

If Brown were still around, you would be putting up with the so called revenue neutral carbon taxes.

I do not always agree with David Menzies and I certainly do not respect the way he is constantly coming down on Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives. I suppose that is understandable because the Conservatives, not to mention the Liberals and the NDP, almost invariably shut the Rebel out of any media events. There is an element of sour grapes with David and Ezra over Scheer; while though understandable, is equally predictable and occasionally petty. I agree in principle that it is the Rebel’s job to go after Scheer and the Conservatives; but a balanced hand would be nice. When it comes to the Conservatives (and particularly now with the big Liberal media pay off) we can count on ALL of the media party to go after the Conservatives. The Rebel need never feel that criticism of the Conservatives, fair or more often than not, unfair, will ever be neglected, if the Rebel fails to put in their two cents worth..

With regards; however, to David’s comments about the mistreatment of Tanya Granic Allen, by the Ontario PC party; David is spot on. Doug Ford’s clearly political decision to drop her as a PC candidate during the last campaign, in a shameless pandering to both the Muslim vote as well the liberal anti-Christian media, was low ball and smacked severely of double standards. Not Doug Ford’s finest hour.

Nicholas Conklin sorry but you do not have to bow to trans to not be a bigot. Go bend over for them like a good sheep.
commented 2018-11-25 23:54:58 -0500
Are you pro free speech ir not? Are you going to toss everybody over what they say rather than what they do? I think it was sleazy politics to let Tanya Granic Allen go. But to toss another member out for the same wrong principal is just wrong. I don’t care if something is forever on the internet. Its its a freedom, then its a gift celebrated in stone.
commented 2018-11-25 19:40:10 -0500
Tanya Granic Allen is simply a homophobe and a bigot. She is also a liability for Doug Ford and that’s exactly why he has gone against her twice now – folding to pressure due the fact that she is a horrible woman and Canadians will not tolerate her or the changes she wants to make to this country.
commented 2018-11-25 18:08:25 -0500
She’s a liberal plant.

One man’s religion is another mans ideology. I want the right to be able to criticise any religion/ideology I think deserves some. However I wouldn’t go to Iran and complain and insult Islam. That would be rude and probably dangerous.

Rob may have had his personal issues but he NEVER would have sold out that way. The CPC just doesn’t get that people are way past sick of the hypocrisy. You can’t trust a damn thing they say. This MPP is an infiltrator. There are scant few conservatives in the conservative party anymore. Doug thinks he can get away with it because he has done so much other good for the province. But he has proven he can be bullied. Really, he proved it right out of the gate when he threw Tanya under the bus. There is no trust. It all feels like a gamble and a crap shoot. You just can’t believe a word from these cino’s.
Is he better than Wynne? Of course. He and Scheer should never be in the same room. Doug makes Scheer look like the doorman.

“Another low life Liberal invading the Conservative Party. "

Well KEITH, if you want to call it an invasion, then it was certainly an invasion by invitation – and it can’t be said that the Ontario PCs didn’t know about the bill of goods they were getting.

My advice to Ford would be to kick her arse out of the party ASAP. She’ll be nothing but trouble in the future.

Then she can sit as an independent or join the socialists….and her voters can decide if they’re content with her “Conservative principles” or not.

Hey Jamie McMaster, not only did Scheer not allow his MP’s to vote against the Paris Climate Agreement, which allowed China to continue to add to their 20% of the world’s CO2 until 2030, but he also wouldn’t allow his MP’s to criticize the Omar Khadr lottery payout. And then you have Doug Ford allow Sikhs to have their own motorcycle helmet law. I am so done with the Conservative Party Federally and Provincially.

Alberta’s PC Party was infiltrated by leftists, it led to the rise of the Wild Rose. Then when some of them crossed the floor, the vote was split enough to elect the disaster that is Rachel. We are seeing a repeat of this with the Federal PC Party. Going back even further you see the Reform Party.

Clearly allowing your party to be infiltrated by fraudsters is very dangerous. And we are likely going to see more of this because it works.
