Resting One's Case

COMPAS POLL/SURVEY - December 5, 2008

Canadians Call for New Election; Harper Would Win Big Majority, Sweep Seat-Rich Ontario and Overtake Liberals in Quebec

Canadians Call for an Election

Below are highlights from a new Canada-wide, COMPAS Research poll on the recent turmoil in the House of Commons. Permission is granted to publish or broadcast results provided COMPAS Inc. is appropriately cited.
By a more than 2:1 margin, Canadians call for another election if the choice faced by the Governor-General were between inviting Stephane Dion to form a government and hold a fresh general election weeks after the most recent one. That is the key finding from a national representative poll completed December 4, 2008.
If an election were held today, Stephen Harper would win a large majority based on nation-wide support of 51% compared to 20% for the Liberals, 10% for the NDP, 6% for the Greens, and 8% for the Bloc. Harper would sweep seat-rich Ontario with 53% of the vote compared to 24% for the Liberals and 10% for the NDP in that province and would surpass Dion in Quebec with 32% of the vote compared to 19% for the Liberals and 35% for the Bloc.

Key factors in this lightening speed transformation of public opinion:

66% of Canadians oppose the Bloc Quebecois having a say in who forms the government;

48% have confidence in Stephen Harper as Prime Minister in the current economic climate compared to 14% for Michael Ignatieff in second place, 11% for NDP leader Jack Layton, 8% for Stephane Dion, 4% for Bob Rae, and 3% for Gilles Duceppe;

58% believe that the Coalition's real or main motivation was a power grab while 28% perceive the Opposition as honestly believing that Harper is a poor manager of the economy;

61% believe that the Liberals, following their drop in support in the October election, should not be trying to form a government.

Harper Majority

December 5, 2008 @ 08:48

'Truly scared' Canadians blame all parties but would give Tories a majority'

The poll also indicates Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservatives would romp to a majority victory with a record 46-per-cent public support if an election were held today.

Well Done Dalton

December 5, 2008 @ 08:47

Ontario sheds 66,000 jobs.

It's popular to blame Stephen Harper for the world economic crisis, so why not blame Dalton for what's going on in his own back yard? It's only fair.

Or should we blame Mike Harris?

Bad News For Liberals

December 5, 2008 @ 08:36

Rae steps in as coalition's chief salesman

Yes, bad news for Liberals but great news for Canada because anyone who takes the time to look into this guys history will reject him unconditionally.

Unfortunately most Canadians, check that, the vast majority, don't take the time necessary to form an intelliegent opinion. That's why Stephen Harper's cardigans probably cost him a majority.

Of all the incompentent quacks you don't want carrying your message, Bob Rae is the man.

Nobody should be surprised at Rae's insistance at following through with the coalition, after all his blood is NDP. Like Jack Layton he wants to take what he didn't earn.

Go Bob Go!

The Layton Way

December 4, 2008 @ 23:53

This was sent to me my reader Joe McLean.

Canada was stunned Monday when it was announced that The Stanley Cup will be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly as early as December 6th.

The Cup will be stripped from 2008 playoff champions the Detroit Red Wings and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn't even make the playoffs.

How is this possible, Canadians ask?

Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with Eastern Conference semi-finalists the Montreal Canadiens, and conference quarter finalists the Ottawa Senators, now outnumbering the Red Wings.

According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson "the Red Wings have lost the confidence of the league and should hand the Cup over immediately to our coalition".

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is cutting short a European trip to try to resolve the unprecedented hockey crisis that could force a second playoff series, or see the Cup be awarded to Team Coalition.

Laugh, but this makes about as much sense as the bullshit we went through this week.

Where Have All The Weasels Gone

December 4, 2008 @ 23:44

Wow, what a different a day makes. On Wednesday this website was crawling with coalition supporters rejoicing in what they thought was the imminent end of the Harper Conservatives.

They were downright nasty saying all kinds of terrible things about me and anyone who looks like me. Check out some of the comments.

Today, they're nowhere to be seen.

Its one thing to lose, but I would expect that anyone who would endorse the theft of my vote would at least have a comeback despite their loss. Surely you have something to say.

The past few days have been a real learning experience for me. How so many so-called Canadians could actually endorse what was about happen to our country is something I'll never forget. It's one of those life altering experiences because just when you think you've seen it all, along comes an issue that proves you haven't.

The amazing thing about the past couple of days is how many people were ready to trash the Prime Minister, endorse a coalition of losers and then stand back and watch as Canada suffered a severe imaging hit for absolutely no reason.

Many argued they were doing it because of the economy, because Canada was in a severe economic crisis, even though the Bank of Canada said Monday that Canada's economy continued to expand, growing at an annualized rate of 1.3% in the third quarter, faster than expected, and the quickest growth rate of the year

The coalitionists were so passionate just a few short hours ago, but now, nothing. No response. They've disappeared.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised because anyone who would be so quick and willing to sell out their country to seperatists obviously doesn't have the back bone to admit they lost.

Prorogue Anyone?

December 4, 2008 @ 17:48

The craziest thing about what happened in Ottawa today is that there are actually thousands of people walking around disappointed - disappointed that the Governor General did the appropriate thing, listened to the Prime Minister, and derailed a power grab by three extremely selfish power hungry men.

Imagine that, disappointed that our government wasn't brought down by three men who combined, barely had the votes to do it.

Forget about all that 62 percent bullshit. Yes, 62 percent of the country didn't vote Conservative, but inside that 62 percent each one of the men involved received nothing close to the amount of votes that our Prime Minister did.

Imagine that, there are people walking around disappointed that I didn't have my vote in October's election taken away from me.

And they have the nerve to use the word "democracy'?

I did my duty on October 14th, went to the polls, cast my ballot for the Conservatives and they won. Not only did they win, but they actually increased their minority. It was all done in good faith but there are those who think that should all have been wiped away this week.

Wiped away, even though each of the individuals that were attempting this power grab hadn't achieved anything near what the Prime Minister had.

Yes what they attemped to do was within the rules, but it goes way beyond that.

Apparently there are several members of the Liberals party who are thrilled with what the Governor General did today because they were never really comfortable with the over-throw and one of those people is Michael Ignatieff who has a good chance of becoming the next leader of that party.

Good on him. Despite knowing full well that this was within the rules, there was a part of him that knew it was morally wrong. Within the rules, but a direct slap in the face to those who voted in the October election.

And that's before the separatist angle was taken into consideration.

Today really is a great day for Canada. There were hundreds of thousands of selfish vultures circling above waiting to pick the bones of anyone who voted Conservative, but the Governor General stepped in and did what was right.

She listened to the Prime Minister, acknowledged the recent election, respected the votes of Conservatives and will allow the elected government to govern.

Was there any other way?

Leading up to today I kept hearing from coalition backers that the overthrow was within the rules and I should live with it. Well what happened today was well within the rules but it will be interesting to see how coalitionists react. Something tells me they won't like the rules today.

But let me simplify it this way, the rules that formed the coalition would have robbed me of my vote. The rules that were used today let me keep it.

There's no telling what will happen in the months ahead, but hopefully whatever happens, it ends in another election.

Not a half-baked take-over by two career losers and an enemy of Canada.

Hungry Man Jack

December 4, 2008 @ 17:47

Make no mistake about it, this man is responsible for the past week.

Jack Layton is a power hungry socialist who knows he will never be able to govern through the ballot box so he devised a way to feed off the accomplishments of others.

But then again, that's the NDP way. Underachieve and then put your hand out to achievers.

The worst part of this past week is how it made Canada look to the rest of the world. In the middle of these so-called tough economic times Jack put together his coalition even though it would make Canada look unstable globally.

There was no reason for it. Despite the so-called tough times Canada remained in pretty good shape compared to the rest of the world. The Prime Minister, contrary to ignorant belief had done a pretty good job steering the country through the past couple of years.

But that didn't matter to Jack.

His thirst for unearned power allowed him to make this country look artificially unstable at the worst possible time.

Well done Jack. You're a fine Canadian.

I know you're probably wondering why I've left the other two guys out of this, but lets face it. Stephane Dion was probably talked into it like a naive little child, and Gilles Duceppe was only doing his job.

HEY NOW, what do you say we do this?

Hit the "discuss" and tell Jack what you think of him and his infamous week of trying to wreck the country.

I'll compile them all and then send them off to his "arsholedness".

You Get What You Ask For

December 3, 2008 @ 20:20

Hey Canada, did you catch that impressive speech by the guy who might be your next Prime Minister, the guy who was overwhelmingly rejected by Canadians in the last election, the guy who was dumped by his own party. Should be a fun ride having this fella drive the train.

Holy freakin' cow, am I dreaming all of this? I just saw Stephane Dion stumble through a speech that was delivered to the networks about half an hour late, a separatist refuse to use the word Canada, and a socialist who is despised by roughly eighty percent of the electorate.

The more I think about it, Stephen Harper should resign and let this crew take over just for the fun of it. Then again, he wouldn't do that because he puts Canada first, and the Kooky Coaltion would drive this country into the ground before the New Year.

Wake up Canada.

P.S. I also saw a Prime Minister who said all he needed to say before meeting with the Governor General tomorrow and hopefull y saving us from all of this.

Scary Stuff

December 3, 2008 @ 20:16

The seperatist who will hold the balance of power in the coaltion government refused to speak to Canadians in English tonight, and didn't say the word Canada once.

Overlook it if you wish. Keep your head firmly planted up your ars. But don't bitch about the consequences.

Canada first.
