    Let's start with the fact that he has the personality of a potato.

    ^ There's also that minor "absolutely no plan to deal with climate change" factor, but hey, who cares about that?

    This is slightly vague, can you clarify what you mean?

    I'm no big fan of Trudeau, to me he is a stuffed shirt just like Harper was and, while slightly better than the Conservatives', many of the Liberal Party policies and attitudes are unpalatable to me.

    Politics is not able to deliver on the promises it makes (how could it?) but we have to choose the best option for the time and situation we are in. I think the Conservative stance on getting SNC its deferred prosecution agreement would be "of course of fucking course", right? BECAUSE MUH JERRRBS. Also this shit they were doing in Libya was happening under Conservative rule.

    It's so deeply ironic that an Indigenous woman is at the centre of so much controversy around this obscure tradition we inherited from British Westminster parliamentary rules (where the Minister of Justice is both part of the ruling party's cabinet and also, as Attorney General, supposedly making judicial decisions above the fray of party politics). She deserves kudos for sticking to those principles but... like, who actually fucking cared about that before her story leaked to the Globe & Mail? It's just a turned into a media dunking contest now on JT.

    My biggest problem with the fed Liberals is that were voted in with optimism for being different than the past... but they quickly, seemingly, became the old Liberal party. And that won't do.

    What do you guys consider some of the least biased sources for political news in Canada?

    Do we have a Politico equivalent?

    I like the Post. Sure they like to shit on the Liberals but I find their reporting to be pretty centrist for the most part.
    The most biased they get are those opinion pieces by Conrad Black... but those pretty much read like satire.

    Politico is VERY biased. Establishment to the hilt.

    Their editorial boards, at least in Calgary (owning both the Herald and Sun), are lough out loud joke.

    Like this example wherein one of them is telling us about their new friend...

    The Conservative Party of Canada is a bunch of actual crybabies. They were literally yelling over the budget speech in the House of Commons. Unbelievable. This whole thing is broken. I'm disheartened beyond words. We're slowly flushing everything down the toilet.
