How Will Justin Trudeau Do Vs Thomas Mulcair & Stephen Harper?  Will Silence be Golden? by Jamie Gilcig

Justin Loving His WifeCFN – Silence could be Justin Trudeau’s best weapon in the upcoming Federal Election.    A lot of noise is coming out about Mr. Trudeau, but the buzz simply is that those Canadians not happy with Stephen Harper’s style of government will have to vote somewhere?

Do voters really care about issues? Healthcare? High Taxes, Lack of Good Jobs?

Thomas Mulcair took the NDP to places they never even expected in the last election.

You can’t have a popular leader facing a terminal illness with the grace and bravery that Jack Layton did in the last election while having one party give you a free pass as the Conservatives did every election.

Orange and Blue just don’t match and that’s where Justin Trudeau can gain the most ground for his Liberals.

For example I asked Justin about Marc Emery.   Mr. Emery, known as the Prince of Pot was allowed to be extradited to the US for crimes he wasn’t charged with in Canada.

He was a tax paying business man employing a lot of people and because of insane Marijuana laws and what some simply were calling a trade war between US marijuana and Canada’s finest from BC ended up with Mr. Emery in Jail doing longer time than some people get for murder for simply having a clerk in his store sell undercover US officers seeds, which is legal, and allegedly giving them advice for going back to the US.

Mr. Trudeau is about to lead a party that is calling for the Legalization of Marijuana.  I asked him about Mr. Emery.

Politics is a tricky blood sport.   Mr. Emery’s situation by many is thought to be one that’s much more greater than the Marijuana issue, but one of our own Canadian Sovereignty.    It was a decision made by our Canadian government that allowed Mr. Emery’s extradition to go through.  IE Capitulating to the whims of a foreign power, even if a friendly one.

The NDP have been all but silent on this issue as well.

Mr. Trudeau is extremely able in front of a microphone; much more so than our Prime Minister.   Mr. Mulcair is very good, but has a near Nixonian visual presence.

As we get closer to the election it will be interesting to see how the NDP and Mr. Harper ratchet up the attacks on Mr. Trudeau and whether Mr. Trudeau folds, ducks, or fights back.   Politics can be a lot like boxing.

With Mr. Harper and his Cons known for their blistering attacks and Mr. Mulcair in no man’s land with the NDP will silence be Mr. Trudeau’s best strategy?  Will he need or even want to go head to head in the upcoming year?

  What do you think Canada?   Will Mr. Trudeau hold his own with Stephen Harper & Thomas Mulcair?

Hopefully it will be Joyce Murray who heads the Liberal Party and not Justin Trudeau. At the very least she will defend Canadian’s rights regardless of whether or not it’s politically expedient.

I am not allowed to have any comment, given I have been branded by the grand pubba of CFN, Jamie, as being a radical, because I wanted people to hear the truth, and he is afraid of offending his sponsors. He is also afraid of scaring off moderate francophones off, like they were evver on our side to begin with

So, I guess, justice and freedom of expression takes a back seat at CFN. However, pro francophones are allowed free reign

Interesting read and questions ADMIN ! I think perhaps having put himself right out there open for quick criticism a strategy going forward would employ a certain amount of restraint on his part to give an opportunity to his opponents to perhaps over extend remarks or positions I do not believe that the next election will see a change in government, perhaps a small chance of a minority, but only a very small chance at that given the economic global climate that will continue to haunt us. I predict that the NDP will loose ground in Quebec and quite conceivably… Read more »

It’s no wonder this country is in the mess that it is in. I was watching the news last night and they were interviewing young people on the streets. The question was, “can you tell us who is running to be the new leader of the Liberal Party?” Many knew none of the candidates who were running and the ones that DID know a name ONLY knew Trudeau. SAD SAD SAD… That sadly tells me that we’re soon to be in for another ride down CR@PPER lane with another — “you can believe me — wink wink — i am… Read more »

@EDUDYORLIK Apathy does seem to have an incredible grip on Canadians from coast to coast and sad it is. Take heart however for the quandary of whether Quebec could or would separate now is of secondary concern to the western provinces creating a lateral version of the north and south concept. If you study the economics and politics of the last 10 to 15 years in particular Quebec’s debt situation does not support independence but rather a continually growing reliance one that has not gone unnoticed in the west where the economic tides move in favour of a sustainable ability… Read more »

Silence as strategy. Like Ali’s rope-a-dope in the “Rumble in the Jungle”? Very interesting take, Jamie.

Harper’s 4th term will see a new Constitution and the end of bilingualism as we know it. In the Conservative’s fifth consecutive leadership, PM Jim Baird will cut equalization payments to Quebec and abolish the Charter.

stellabystarlight April 14, 2013 at 8:58 am To tell you the truth Canadians have a short term memory with regards to politics. Chretien had many more screw ups ,but all parties are not ammune to this ,some more then others ,but there is a good reason why the liberals are so low in the pecking order. David Oldham April 14, 2013 at 9:58 am Right on the money David ,but the west is looking hard at separation as well . Now if you where looking for roomates would you prefer someone on Social assistance or someone who’ self sufficient and… Read more »

Can’t believe I’m going to agree with howard. YOu’re right when you say canadians have short term memories in regards to voting. But, the western attitude is frustrating. It this attitude that they achieved this wealth on their own. When they needed help the east was there. And now that its our turn, some tell us to buzz off, I don’t think so.

“Can’t believe I’m going to agree with howard.”

Careful there Richard I may convert you …to logic and reasoning from idealism and conformity of adgenda.
