Canada Day with Iggy


 

 

The beer was served at Ignatieff’s Canada Day bash from a Brita container and the flags were slightly wrinkled.

Canada Day with Iggy

  1. Too bad Iggy decided to use my Grandsons’ card that they worked so hard on for him but left their Grandmother out of the picture in favour of a photo op. They were very upset when they saw it.

  2. How boring !!! Just another tired old Liberal trying to Hoover up some votes. No policies, no money, no organization. The Liberal party is tired and broke.

  3. Those don’t look like the compostable beer cups. (I, umm, used one or two at Folk Fest this year and they’re clear, different from those greyish ones you throw away at picnics everywhere.)

    I hear you can order them from a company called Green Shift.

  4. Liberals in Toronto Liberals in Toronto
    Toronto is NOT Canada anyway ..!!!

  5. I don’t understand how some people can look at a few pictures and be so negative about them. It was a fun party.

  6. Does Iggy cook with charcoal (C + O2) or propane (C3H8 + O2)?

    Won’t somebody think of the carbon?

  7. lol. For those who take that question seriously:

    Like all condo buildings in Toronto, you have to have a gas feed (natural I believe) run by the building.

  8. Maybe take on PR for the mayor of St. John’s?

  9. The will of the people is that there should be no representation in Cabinet from Newfoundland, Montreal or Toronto. Let it stand. That’s democracy.

  10. There’s none in Vancouver either (North and West Vancouver *is not* Vancouver, nor is Port Moody), and wouldn’t have been in the last parliament had Harper let the will of the people decide last time.

    Conservatives have been shut out of the large cities for a reason they’d best ponder before the next election.

    Here we call what Harper has achieved a “high water mark”.

    We are a port city, after all.

  11. In other news,

    cough,

    cough,

    cough,

    A Nfld mayor is demanding a cabinet post for the province,

    cough,

    cough,

    cough,

    after following the mad hatter Danny off the cliff,

    cough,

    cough,

    cough.

  12. Quebecers decided to vote for the Bloc,

    a party that prides itself on eschewing federal representation.

    Now, we should all keep it down,

    I just tucked them in,

    to the beds they just made for themselves.

    Shhhhh,

    nighty night,

    may you dream of your favorite artist singing a nice folk tune making all your financial problems feel a million miles away.

  13. It’s the will of the people that these places have no Tory representation in Parliament, not Cabinet. That Cabinet members are generally elected is little more than a custom. I’m not sure that democratic legitimacy is a factor. With roughly 30 Cabinets seats that leaves 278 ridings full of Canadians who couldn’t cast a ballot for a minister and even the rest didn’t really know they were doing it.

  14. “She’s going to pursue a “new challenge.””

    Perhaps she is going to write a book about Responsible Government.

  15. “She’s going to pursue a “new challenge.””

    Perhaps she is going to write a book about Responsible Government.”

    Wells is implying she’s going to be Harper’s Montreal pick.

  16. “Wells is implying she’s going to be Harper’s Montreal pick.”

    But maybe she can also find time for a book about ministerial accountability while sitting both in Cabinet and in the Senate? Possible chapter titles:

    Chapter 1: The Star Chamber – Second Thoughts
    Chapter 2: The Glorious Slippery Slope of 1688
    Chapter 3: Papineau-Mackenzie: The Radical Fringe
    Chapter 4: Lord Elgin’s Folly

    etc.

    etc.

    Whatever…. with Rona Ambrose due for a demotion, we need a new MILFy hottie in cabinet.

  18. “with Rona Ambrose due for a demotion, we need a new MILFy hottie in cabinet.”

    What, Jason Kenney doesn’t give you that?

  19. I hold out hope for a Ruby D floor cross.

  20. In addition to a possible Tory position, Hudon’s departure could be related to her new role at Université du Québec à Montréal. She’s the new chair of the university’s board of governors, so perhaps she’ll be taking up a management role at UQAM… who face major financial troubles.

  21. Do I have my math right, and January 2nd, 2010, is the day that Harper could stack the Senate (using the extra 8 senators clause) to give the CPC a majority in the Senate (57 to 56)?

    Check here.

    One Liberal senator’s retirement party is tomorrow.

  22. Make that December 13th, 2009.
