Canadian Conservatives Elect a New Leader, Pierre Poilievre

 

In an astounding first-ballot knock-out victory, Pierre Poilievre will be the conservative leader for the future. The results were…

  • Poilievre: 68.15%
  • Charest : 16.07%
  • Lewis : 9.69%

I like Pierre Poilievre; I am glad that not only did he win, but won in a decisive and clear victory. His victory speech:

To get an idea who Pierre Poilievre is, here is a compilation video of his moments in parliament:

    He’s the guy who lit up Justin? I forgot his name, but I remember that.

    No she’s a pot head whore, an international scandal and national embarrassment – but not a crook.

    I listened to his conversation with Jordan Peterson (the other two as well).  90 minutes of thoughtful (redundant with Peterson I know) questions and equally thoughtful answers.  Happy to stick a sign in my yard for him!  That would really mess the libs up in my hometown!

    What typical bureaucrats—straight out of Bureaucrat and Politician University—and then that blast of fresh air. Thank you.

    That guy is very thoughtful and is one hell of a speaker. He has definitely studied public policy a ton. He’s also really sensitive to inflationism, but I don’t really know if anybody can do anything about it right now. He might be able to come up with something.

    Love the Quebeçois accent.  Even though he claims to have polished it late in life, it is definitely polished.

    French is actually his first language. He was born in Calgary, but was adopted into a french community in Saskatchewan.

    The Liars have already started in on him:

    A better use of newsprint than actually reading it.

    This guy sounds like Trump only more multiracial and polite. I approve.

    I always got a vibe from Trump that he genuinely loved America. I get the sense that this guy likes Canada. I too like Canada. I hope this new guy does well.

    The one thing that I am greatly encouraged about this guy. Is that he can sit down with Jordan Peterson for 90 minutes and discuss his policy proposals – and not just the talking points, but examine them and explain why he believes what he believes. I cant imagine Justine Trudeau ever being able to do the same.

    Justine Trudeau has said himself that he doesnt think about monetary policy. He was specific on that detail, but I believe its true about all government policy – he doesnt think about it, he goes along with whatever the “Expert” opinion is. The problem is – that the experts were not elected and are often unknown to the voters – at the end of the day, he’ll evade responsibility by flogging off any blame to the experts. He totally misses the point of the democratic process – we’re electing leaders to use their best judgements and lead. Not follow unknown ‘expert’ advice and then throw the experts under the bus and shield his culpability when it all goes wrong.

    IF he has no idea why a policy is the best course of action he should not advocate it or pursue it until he understands it. He’s sold the voters on his judgement, but then at every opportunity substitutes the judgements of others. I am not saying that the outcomes would have been any different or better – but at least then he’d have been honest.

    How should I thin’ about Jordan Peterson? Canadian Politics is hard to follow.

    I think Jordan Peterson is acting the honest interrogator here. Jordan is a very rational, factual advocate for policies that could broadly be described as ‘right’ but are really unwoke or anti-woke. I think broadly speaking Jordan is a moderate center left kind of guy, but the leftists went off the deep end without him.

    Just a little review of how the media is commentating on Pierre Poilievere, calling him “Skinny Trump” and his wife a mail order bride – are a few of the low lights for me.
