The National Bureau Chief for Sun Media is David Akin, of whom I am unabashedly a big fan. Why, Sun Media haters might ask?
Because besides the fact that he was more often than not, the only journalist out there holding Christy Clark’s feet to the fire prior to the last election and during it – he called her first on her jobs plan claims, among other items – he writes blog posts that get right to the point, like this excerpt:
“So, the ladies had questions. Like this one:
“Which nation, besides Canada, which nation’s administration do you most admire, and why?”
There were about 100 people in the crowd at swank downtown Toronto meeting place who’d paid $250 each to be able to ask Justin Trudeau questions and, as the ad said, to “really get to know the future prime minister.”
Ok, so other than Canada, which country’s government does Trudeau “most admire”?
Well, first of all, Trudeau had to acknowledge one thing about his crowd: “Not the fluffy questions some were expecting.”
Much laughter and clapping.
Ok, then. Which country’s government does the “future prime minister” most admire?
Answer: ” You know, there’s a level of of admiration I actually have for China ….
Wait a minute. China? He was not asked which country he liked a bit, or was doing a decent job — but “which nation’s administration he most admired.”
So here’s the whole answer:
” You know, there’s a level of of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say ‘we need to go green fastest…we need to start investing in solar.’ I mean there is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about of having a dictatorship that he can do everything he wanted that I find quite interesting.
But if I were to reach out and say which…which kind of administration I most admire, I think there’s something to be said right here in Canada for the way our territories are run. Nunavut, Northwest Territories, and the Yukon are done without political parties around consensus. And are much more like a municipal government. And I think there’s a lot to be said for people pulling together to try and solve issues rather than to score points off of each other. And I think we need a little more of that.
But Sun News can now report that I prefer China.”
Much laughter ensued. Much laughter indeed.
Now, go read the rest, right now, and chew on that for a bit with your morning coffee, while I finish up the main course for you… 🙂
So, if you think the young Trudeau will be any different from the old Harper…. you’ve just had the reality check of your life. https://lailayuile.com/2012/11/06/stories-within-stories-harperwhy-we-must-stop-the-canada-china-fipa-and-the-deal-you-still-dont-really-know-about/
And what exactly did the Chinese government use our Canadian uranium for? http://p.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/31/inside-china-nuclear-submarines-capable-of-widespr/

He is alot like his Dad in some ways. The arrogance is definately there.
Frankly, Trudeau scares me. His charm and good looks seem to distract alot of Canadians from the fact that he is as much a friend of those powerbrokers as Harper and is in fact a different face of the same coin.
Standing by for your main course…
I’m just wondering…did any in the audience tuck any new super duper 5s or 10s in his G-string?
Ah, the return of the Trudeau sex symbol. Fairly soon we should be seeing the infamous middle finger salute, followed by a pirouette behind a royal’s back, followed by the pied piper gleefully leading a throng of baffled and buffooned supporters on a parade into the abyss.
At least Trudeau the first was cunning, astute and bright enough to pull off the act for the length of time it took to complete the task he was given. #2 is, by all appearances, mindless, just friggin mindless.
Justin Trudeau, honorary member of the Lucky Sperm club.
His youthful naivety is only surpassed by his delusions of grandeur.
But if Steven Harper continues down the path of arrogance towards the town of Stupid
Perhaps the NDP WILL form the next federal govt
I’d hold my nose and vote for them if they abolished the Senate.
I’m really disheartened to think that our next PM could be an underwear model. Just as disheartening is that the next mayor of TO may well be living in solitary confinement somewhere. Why does politics have to be taken to the lowest common denominator?
[…] made some really interesting comments over the years, one in particular that raised eyebrows was his admiration for the kind of dictatorship China had. He is young, and lacks experience in many areas I think are critical to a position like Prime […]
