Jacques Gourde achieves government backbencher nirvana


The Conservative MP’s statement to the House yesterday afternoon.

Here again is a rough guide to the Conservatives’ carbon tax farce.


Jacques Gourde achieves government backbencher nirvana

  1. Reading that, I do believe Jacques Gourde may have Tourettes.

  2. And once again it is Carbon Tax crusader Aaron Wherry to the rescue. We are going to have get Wherry a carbon cape for his efforts….

    • The crusade is coming from the Cons.What part of this are you having trouble understanding?

      • Understanding is not part of Bill’s repertoire, he does stimulus/response only. To his credit, he’s very good at responding on cue.

    • If you have problems with others’ perseveration, perhaps you should take that up with the sock puppets in the CPC caucus who simply don’t know when to give it a rest. This carbon tax meme is profoundly wearisome…much moreso than Wherry’s “crusade”.

  3. “When I look in the eyes of the NDP members…”
    You have to look up from the short-pantser’s script to do that, Mr. Gourde.

  4. Who did he say is obsessed with a carbon tax? Perhaps he should look in the mirror and around him on the government side of the house.

  5. In a just society, that man would be facing charges of theft from the public purse. Talk about embracing your irrelevance. A waste of time, a waste of money, a waste of opportunity and a disgrace to his family name.

  6. Shouldn’t he have a little grinch hat on while doing that?

    When does this become officially ludicrous? As was pointed out on another blog, we had Kent delivering [in his inimitably smug way] a speech at Qatar, praising the efforts of those provinces that have or are thinking of having a price on carbon!! Would that be the same carbon this little elf is barking out?
    . Does this govt live in a parallel irony free universe? It’s beginning to look like it. They sure don’t live on planet earth anymore.

  7. Stupid is as stupid does.

  8. With all the litany of stuff that’s going on in there, does The Speaker realize he is heading for the history books as the all time worst and the person who let it all slip into total irrelevance.
