Justin Trudeau, Rob Ford and Maxime Bernier - the three stooges provide some comic relief
What a freaking circus. CTV is reporting that "Ontario MP Leona Alleslev surprised many in announcing in the House of Commons on Monday that she was crossing the floor from the Liberal caucus to join the Conservatives, in the first floor crossing of this Parliament. Before physically walking across the floor where she was met by thunderous applause and handshakes, Alleslev said she was deeply concerned about the future of the country, citing economic and foreign policy concerns."
The Toronto Sun is reporting that Leona Alleslev will take on a key role in caucus as the party’s critic of Global Security. How about Canadian Peacekeepers in Myanmar?
This isn't the first time a politician has crossed the floor but it is signs of a flailing Justin Trudeau who has clearly lost his former rock star image. Now people just see him as a clown. Forcing the pipeline on us without our consent was a big mistake.
On the flip side, Maxime Bernier quit the conservatives before being kicked out for denouncing multiculturalism. So now he wants to start his own political party. Good luck with that. Ron Paul is a Libertarian. Maxime Bernier is not. Maxime now claims the conservatives are morally corrupt. Like when he left a confidential file on Afghanistan with his former girlfriend Julie Couillard and told her the war in Afghanistan had nothing to do with fighting for freedom it was about controlling the opium trade. Maxime didn't have a problem with the moral corruption under Stephen Harper.
Meanwhile back on the ranch Rob Ford invokes the not withstanding clause of the charter after the court says he can't cut Toronto city council by half. Three nutbars off the hook. Andrew Scheer, federal Tories back Doug Ford’s use of notwithstanding clause. Make that four stooges.
Where's Rick Mercer when you need him? Season finally? God help us.
