OH! Canada! – Revenge Of The Right?

Today Canada picks a direction. Will they go Black Face & Shame or Right and Happy?

There’s an election underway. News as it happens and hopefully Canada joins the Populous Revolution.

Has an interesting picture in it. A guy in a “Make Canada Great Again” hat ;-0

“United We Roll” is calling itself a Canadian Yellow Vest protest. Gotta love it when a globalist coup on the world starts to run into a Global Resistance aware of and leveraging each other around the world. Hey, P.G., Hows that for a net across the world? Eh?

With United We Roll rally, Canada’s right revs up its engines

Nora Loreto is a Canadian freelance writer and author of “From Demonized to Organized: Building the New Union Movement.”

Canada’s version of France’s “yellow vest” movement has had a big week. A trucking convoy, under the banner United We Roll, has traveled from Alberta to Ottawa and grabbed national headlines. Their demands: build more pipelines, resume oil tanker traffic and cancel the planned carbon tax.
[…]
As a result, the movement also opposes “globalism,” as represented by a nonbinding U.N. pact on migration, and “open borders.” “Make Canada Great Again” hats and swag from various hate organizations dotted the convoy’s welcome rallies.

Of course, they are now being smeared with the usual laundry list of insults. Maybe we need an acrynim for them? Like the LGBTSDFJHIOSDSFDLF… whatever; so it’s not as hard to list them all? RSHMWP Racist, Sexist, Homophobe, Misogynist, White Privilege, what have I left out? Oh, right, Xenophobic. But RSHMWPX is hard to pronounce… Maybe we must need to call it “The RashM Insult Bundle” and avoid that alphabet soup escalation of The Left…

So, OK, they are being painted with the RashM Bundle (hopefully with as little effect as it now has on the rest of us who have become entirely bored with it…)

It seems that Saint Gretta has shown up in the Oil Lands of Canada to spread her version of Economic Destruction and Guilt THE END IS NEIGH! But it’s not selling well these days and a few hundred of the United We Roll folks have shown up to counter protest. (Hey, this could be a trend…)

United We Roll pro-energy convoy to protest Greta Thunberg-involved rally

Greta Thunberg is heading to Edmonton, and Alberta is rolling out the welcome wagon in the form of a pro-energy convoy.

The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist has travelled to the province to participate in a climate protest this Friday on Treaty 6 territory in amiskwaciwâskahikan.

So somewhere their ought to be news from Friday about how Little Miss MeltDown handled that…

Dr. Steve Turley covers that and more in his latest video here, with some gusto I might add. About 12 minutes:

Ah, it couldn’t happen to a better primadonna wannabe.

It’s nice to see Canada waking up a bit. It will be worth checking the news as the day closes to see just how much Canada has realized The Left is taking them for a ride. Will they recover their senses? Or will we have Faux Black Face back in power?

Oh,the suspense of it all…

    Somehow I do not think Canada is serious about getting healthy. MOre likely, idiot jr will get another term. The only difference between him and hillary is he can stand up.

  2. jim2 says:

    So, philjourdan, you are stipulating idiot jr thinks all contenders are Russian spies?

    Hey, hey, hey. The voice-to-text cc in the Turley video was pretty good so I made it all the way through. (That means he enunciates well so the glitches are where the words aren’t on the program’s list.)

    It seems St. Greta has been unable to extend her influence much beyond the believing sheeple and her charming, but angry little girl act is not playing well outside of the faithful.

    On the bright side – for her – her pocketbook seems to be doing exceedingly well. The numbers I’ve read are in the millions of dollars.

    I’ve told you all my new hobby is growing a ponytail. I think I’m going to switch to braids and practice my stern, pouty look. I could use the extra retirement income. The downside is I’d have to ditch the moustache.

  4. H.R. says:

    Looks like it will be a minority coalition government. Sparkle Socks didn’t get a 170 seat majority. Went from 177 Liberal to 156 Liberal seats. Needed 170 for a majority.

    @H.R.:

    Nah, just make a straw outa 1/2 brass tube :-)

    Late check show no answers yet for Canada. Likely a minority government for Trudeau. So some loss but not a repudiation.

  8. YMMV says:

    It’s all over now.

    That has an interactive graphic, so I didn’t find any way to get a link to a real graphic. Note the similarity to the US red/blue graphic. Big cities red(Liberal), western fly-over blue(Conservative), and the Left Coast is orange(NDP). Oh, and the Quebec separatists are back big time. The Liberals lost 30 seats, the Conservatives gained 24 and won the popular vote. What it all means? Beats me. I figure Trudeau is Obama-lite. Sort of boring. Back to watching Brexit.

  9. Another Ian says:

    YMMV

    Try the one I posted over on the Treaties thread

  10. YMMV says:

    That one doesn’t show up for me.

    “The Conservatives, with more than 34 per cent of the vote, have 121 seats. The Liberals, with 33 per cent of the vote, have 157. The NDP went down four per cent in the popular vote – and lost 20 seats.”
    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-making-every-vote-count-its-time-for-electoral-reform/

    On the other hand, consider that having more than two major parties is not a good idea. Vote splitting and all that. Add all the leftish parties together and you get conservative 34%, small-L liberal about 75%. I didn’t count the BQ, I don’t know which way they lean.

    It’s just another relatively small step down the path of Venezuela. The voters are happy to deficit spend to get the progressive (socialist-ish) perks.

    “From coast to coast, tonight, Canadians rejected division and negativity. They rejected cuts and austerity, and they voted in favour of a progressive agenda and strong action on climate change. I have heard you, my friends. You are sending our Liberal team back to work; back to Ottawa with a clear mandate. We will make life more affordable. We will continue to fight climate change. We will get guns off our streets and we will keep investing in Canadians.”
    https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/election-2019/canada-full-text-justin-trudeau-victory-speech-liberals

    As I was saying, Obama-lite. Fighting climate change of course means fighting global warming, and that must mean Canadians want to freeze in the dark and walk to work through snowdrifts, with that warm inner glow of feeling superior? or is that feeling righteous? or maybe on the right side of history? Beats me.

    Not all Canadians. Lots of them live in LA, Phoenix, and Florida for at least the winters.

  11. E.M.Smith says:

    @YMMV:

    Last time I was living in Florida (for 2 years) the folks in the “coach” next to me were from Canada. They said they had to be IN Canada for at least 6 months each year to keep their medical coverage, so I saw them about 5.9 months of each year ;-)

    Well, I guess Canada can be our “Canary In The Coal Mine” for USA Socialism…

    And it used to be such a nice, wealthy, place…

    There needs to be a concerted effort made to figure out now to cure the Socialist Disease without running your country through poverty and collapse first…

  12. Another Ian says:

    Time for a rewrite of the national anthem

    “Poor Canada – – “

  13. philjourdan says:

    @jim2 – Nah- in Canada, they think that they are all Latvian spies. Canada does not think big enough.

  14. Chris In Calgary says:

    No, not so boring. This actually may be the election that triggers the breakup of Canada.

    The Conservatives actually won the popular vote but finished well back in the seat count. There’s a big section of the country in the West (including all of Alberta and Saskatchewan) that completely rejected the governing Liberals. The anger is palpable.

    A comparison to the States would be if the Democrats lost every House seat between (and including) Texas and Montana, yet the Democrats still won a majority in the House and the Presidency (with a minority of the popular vote).

    Plus, the separatist Bloc Quebecois now controls just under half of the seats in Quebec.

    Many people (particularly in the East of the country, excluding Quebec) are complacent about this. But they shouldn’t be. The danger is they’ll go back to believing in business as usual, while the consent to be governed evaporates in the West and Quebec. Followed by referendums on secession…

    “The juvenile and reckless policies of the amateur Trudeau government — a government of butterflies in its early yoga and selfies days — has brought the country to a terrible pass, where the only elements that really count in a nation — its cohesion, its sense of common endeavour, of all its parts and regions acting on the great issues in concert, as one — these elements are shattered.”

  15. gallopingcamel says:

    It appears that there is more effective “push back” against climate science in Canada and France than there is in the USA.

    Would we have Gilets Jaunes riots in the USA if gas cost $6.34 per gallon as it does today in France?

  16. H.R. says:

    gallopingcamel: “Would we have Gilets Jaunes riots in the USA if gas cost $6.34 per gallon as it does today in France?”

    It depends upon whether or not the price increase was due to taxes or market forces.

  17. E.M.Smith says:

    @G.C:

    Remember that Trump has suspended the horrible “Paris Agreement”. A LOT of us, me incuded, are banking our anger for after the election. When he is reelected, we are out of it for good. IF he is not elected and the Dimocrats toss us back into it; expect a much stronger “resistance” movement.

    BTW, Gasoline in California is now typically over $4 / gallon. I’ve seen prices that start with a $5. I doubt the denizens of San Francisco would flinch at $6 gas.

    Me? I’m prepping for the move to $2.50 / $3 gasoline country ;-)

    @Chris in Calgary:

    How about this for an idea:

    Central Canada / West leaves Canada. “Flyover Country” USA joins you. Together we’d make a pretty darned strong country… Alaska to the Texas Gulf coast… Think about it….

    The two coasts 100% dependent on our oil infrastructures, and us with a dramatically favored cost basis for things like manufacturing and shipping….

    Working out the legal details would be a bit problematic, then again, I don’t think New York or California have many guns ;-)

  18. Steven Fraser says:

    @EM: word last night from Trump said the formal notice will be sent. Date mentioned is Nov 4. Takes effect 1 year later, the day after the election:

  19. Steven Fraser says:

    @EM: You wrote: ‘Central Canada / West leaves Canada. “Flyover Country” USA joins you.’

    Manitoba to the West Coast, and throw in the NW Territories & Yukon…. Works for me.

  20. E.M.Smith says:

    @Steven Fraser:

    OMG! I think I made the same mental error that whoever drafted those “barriers” to getting out did. I had heard “It can’t be cancelled for 2 years and after the election” and thought “Oh darn, then Trump can’t do it.” BUT that had me (yes, the thing I caution people not to accuse me of doing…) FORGETTING that the POTUS is still the POTUS after the election and until the inauguration.

    Oh, you have made my day! 8-)

    Re “Canada had an election today; we lost.”

    Trudeau has put a Quebec environmental extremist MP in charge of outreach to Alberta and Saskatchewan.

    They just can’t control themselves, even for 24 hours.

  23. YMMV says:

    That would be too funny, in an absurd way. I did a search engine research on the guy. Steven Guilbeault seems to have been mostly a full time environmentalist. He climbed a tree when he was five to keep it from being cut down. He climbed Toronto’s CN Tower 1100 feet in 2001 when he was 31 to protest about the climate.
