June 6, 2018

During the last week-and-a-half of the campaign, the Liberals have been running strident ads attacking the NDP. The ads look and sound as though the Ford war room created them. Some Liberal supporters have told this writer they find this particular Liberal tactic to be puzzling and distressing — although not distressing enough to take down their Liberal lawn signs and substitute NDP ones.

May 23, 2018

The New Democratic Party’s (NDP) tepid platform for the June 7 Ontario election is being touted by media outlets, the trade unions, and the pseudo-left as a bold “left” turn and a return to the party’s social-democratic roots.

The Canadian social democratic party’s foreign critic Hélène Laverdière has certainly remained silent regarding US leaders musing about a military coup or invasion of Venezuela and has openly supported asphyxiating the left-wing government through other means.

“Love and courage”—Canada’s NDP elects Obama-style pitchman as leader
