The Return of Freddy Krueger! #canpoli #qcpoli #bcpoli

He’s back!

The return of the Hair Net!

Gilles Duceppe is returning to lead the Bloc Quebecois into the becoming federal election and they waited until after Jacques Parizeau died to announce it.

Duceppe, who all but had his party wiped out in the 2011 election is considered to be the so-called savior of the federal sovereignty movement.

Pundits and pollsters say (Read Those that still work at the CBC) that Duceppe will get the Bloc back into the political game


Bringing back the Hair Net proves that the Bloc is devoid of new ideas and that they are no longer relevant.

Jacques Parizeau must be sputtering in his grave.

Even Lucien Bouchard will be uttering “cela ne peut continuer” 🙂

The Bloc will not be a factor in October.

You heard it here first!

Bravo Mr. Prime Minister! #canpoli #bcpoli

Today I am proud to be a Conservative!

I had occasion to chat with a few folks from the PMO following the recent summer barbecue here in Langley.

After the Prime Minister’s speech we chatted about the stuff worth taking home from that oration.

For my two cents I told the folks that I think most people know that Trudeau is in over his head and when push comes to shove they won’t vote for him as long as we promote our good record.

Today,Prime Minister Harper made a speech and did just that.

By no means an I saying he did that because I said so.

He did that because it’s the right thing to do.

Prime Minister Harper has always been Here for Canada.

Today, once again he proved it and made me proud.

Federal Politics: Boundary Changes Coming; So are Nomination Battles! #bcpoli #canpoli #election2015

All is calm on the federal election front :NOT!

Federal politics is about to get very interesting.

Shortly there will be what is purported to be a major cabinet shuffle in Ottawa.This will result in the usual amount of retirements and those who say they will not run in the 2015 federal election.

Evidence of this is the quick retirement of Cabinet Minister Vic Toews.

Soon after the shuffle , the new federal boundaries will be announced. This will result in the number of ridings increasing in Canada from 308 to 338.

I would expect this announcement sometime in the fall.

The Prime Minister has already gone on record saying there will be open nominations in all ridings. This did not happen in 2011 because of the minority government situation.

Already the chirping has started with the folks in Alberta up in arms over who runs where.

I think that what goes on in the rest of Canada will be pale in comparison to what will go on in BC, specifically Surrey.

Take the riding I live in, the potentially named West Langley-Cloverdale.

Already former MP Gurmant Grewal has announced his intention to seek the seat.

That was followed by the announcement of “never been more than a back bench MLA ” Dave Hayer retiring from provincial politics ( likely because he thought the BC Liberals were going to lose the last election) and declaring he will also run.

On top of that we now hear rumors that former Federal Liberal supporter and Sukh Dhaliwal backer ( you remember Sukh, he was a former MP turned MLA wanna be who the BC Liberals tossed for forgetting to file his taxes) Paul Brar is telling local folk that he too will contest the seat.

I have also heard rumors of other potential entrants into the fray. Current Langley E.D.A. President Tako J.van Popta‘s name has been bandied about.

That’s 4 potential contestants already and it’s only 2013. ( I haven’t even mentioned that this is the EDA that current Surrey-White Rock MP Russ Hiebert calls home)

This by the way won’t restrict itself to my beloved Conservative Party.

Election Mania will run rampant as soon as the new ridings are announced.

Hear a rumor? Let me know, confidentially of course, and I’ll check it out and share it with everybody via the blog!
