Scott Brison vs. The budget bill

The Brisonbuster continues at the finance committee.

Last night, Mr. Brison unleashed a 14-part series of tweets to explain himself.

What’s at stake here? When the Cons use their majority to effectively suspend the rules, we’re no longer in a democracy

Scott Brison vs. The budget bill

  1. This hysterical talk of not living in a democracy is a good example of why immigrants vote Conservative – imagine being an immigrant from China or Philippines and reading Brison’s immature screed about Canada not being a democracy. Typical Liberal behaviour – mean, immature, and dishonest.

    Conservatives have gained voter share in four consecutive elections – that’s never happened before in Canada – and their approval ratings are quite high for a government in its third mandate. That’s democracy, baby.

    Liberals believe in an unelected Senate lording over the peoples’ elected representatives – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals believe in unelected judges vetoing legislation passed by the peoples’ elected representatives – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals believe in race and gender quotas in selecting candidates for public office instead of the best candidate being selected by vote of party members – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals installed Michael Ignatieff as leader without a (real) vote of their party members – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals believe a Charter of Rights cooked up by 11 white guys in suits 30 years ago should perpetually rule how Canadians govern themselves – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals – or at least Justin Trudeau – believe a small minority of French Quebeckers should lord over the vast majority of Canadians, and that Canada “belongs to” this small minority of Quebeckers – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals – or at least Dirty Dave McGuinty – believe that Alberta’s freely elected representatives don’t belong in the House of Commons and should “go back to Alberta – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals are propped up by an unelected “consensus media” which bizarrely continues to carry water for an unpopular fringe party and distort political reporting to the point of electoral fraud – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals for years were financed by and beholden to Big Business until Stephen Harper banned corporate donations – that’s undemocratic.

    Liberals were recently fined by Elections Canada for an illegal robocall scam in Guelph – that’s undemocratic.

    Etcetera, etcetera. A dying, deprecated, “legacy party” of the 20th century is what the undemocratic Liberal Party of Canada is. Brison is in no position to criticize anyone, anywhere of being undemocratic.
