ANALYSIS

Conservatives’ copyright law changes could backfire Does the government really want to trigger a debate over the use of political attack ads?

The Cons haven’t had much success so far in trashing  Junior Trudeau…well, not too surprising, but then they are guilty of the same sort of  overstatement, so hard for the pot to call the kettle..and what they’ve focused on seems odd in the extreme..if their new  regulation vis a vis the  press and what is and isn’t used from  reportage goes through (and I can’t see the Supremes allowing it to…) I’m a bit confused as to how it would work in the Con’s favour…

Don’t forget that Junior Trudeau’s political predecessor won all our begrudging hearts by keeping Canada out of Iraq..and Trudeau is right…we shouldn’t be there, it isn’t our fight, and get real,   Cons, this all hearkens back to the Russians trying unsuccessfully for decades to control  Afghanistan through the same routine, only to leave in despair..and what replaced them? A heavily fundamentalist regime..nothing to see here folks…we may not like it, but these countries really need to fight their own battles, and even the rationale of blood for oil is invalid these days with the fuel surplus dropping prices in the West…

I am not a big fan of Trudeau, but have to say I actually enjoyed the line about ‘whipping out the C-18s’…not only is he creating an indelible image of rightwing whackjob old men gracelessly whingeing about who has the biggest or the best…he is speaking in the  language of real people…something every Canadian can understand, even if they are smirking behind their hands…we are not about war.
