Andrew Scheer is a Bashful Penis Flytrap

Post #1 by Craig » Fri Feb 06, 2015 10:13 am

The Supreme Court struck down the ban on doctor assisted suicide:

http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/02/06/supreme-court-of-canada-strikes-down-ban-on-doctor-assisted-suicide/

The ruling limits physician-assisted suicides to “a competent adult person who clearly consents to the termination of life and has a grievous and irremediable medical condition, including an illness, disease or disability, that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition.”

Within those parameters, the court said the nature of the suffering includes either physical or psychological pain. The person’s condition need not be terminal.

Doctors, meanwhile, cannot be compelled to assist someone in suicide.


I'm pleased with the ruling. Also surprised they included psychological pain and non-terminal conditions. Even more surprised it was 9-0.

Quiet, you. We've finally opened the door for the emos to get what they want and you're trying to ruin it with your kibitzing?!

Fuck, all these EMO's are going to move to Canada now so they can legally kill themselves on the public dole.

Canadian Federal business plan:

1) Institute a severe death tax for recent immigrants.
2) Allow large number of immigrants on the basis of being persecuted at home via a denial of right to die.

The supreme court just ruled that a ban on assisted suicide constitutes an infringement on our basic rights, so it hardly seems like much of a stretch to call it persecution. This is easy money.

They're more about taxing to death, amirite?

On the note of taxes, Alberta may try out this 20th century thing and go with progressive income taxes. What a time to be alive.

There will also be 'significant' carbon taxes on the horizon as well. With the rumors of a March provincial election, they might as well get these out of the way quickly because nobody is in a position to even put a dent in this majority. The Alberta Liberals and Alberta Party need to merge and do it fast.

Thomas Malthus wrote:Kind of an interesting move by Trudeau. On one hand you have him recruiting a Tory MP to run for him and someone with municipal experience (something that might help with his focus on infrastructure). But on the other hand you have this recruit who has been controversial recently for what seems to be a lust for power. Or maybe I'm reading this wrong and she just really, really wants to serve Canadians.

It seems a kind of interesting move that opens Trudeau and the Liberals up to attacks considering that he seems like he's been trying to avoid controversy.


You would assume that his team would have vetted her before they brought her into the fold. What does Dmitri Soudas do now? Is he moving to the Liberals as well?

Any relationship with that weasel Dmitri Soudas just contaminates Trudeau as far as I'm concerned.

Thomas Malthus wrote:Reporters were asking this question at the press conference. Both Trudeau and Adams tried to avoid it by saying something about how her family supports her decision and that Trudeau expects her to bring a dedicated team of volunteers and personal support. When it was asked again Adams alleged (not sure if jokingly or seriously) that she didn't know whether or not the Tories were calling and having this reporter ask this question to her because this reporter would never ask such a question about what a woman's spouse or friends thought or were doing. The reporter then said that because of the link between Soudas and the Tories and that Adams and Soudas were always in the news together, the question was pertinent. My stream cut off before I heard the answer.

I don't know what he's going to do but I would wager it doesn't involve the Liberals.


It seemed like they were basically speaking in circles around that question.

Hmmm, I don't know what to think about this...

I think best case scenario would be that she serves with the Liberals for the next 8 months, and doesn't win any nomination race.

Charisma-less Rob Nicholson is in at Foreign Affairs, Jason Kenney gets Defence, and Pierre Poilievre is going to do to Employment what he did to Democratic Reform.

I know it's sexist to talk about Eve Adams' physical appearance, but you know that girl can take a cock. Solid waiver pickup by Trudeau.

Surprised the Liberals bothered taking on Adams. She doesn't know where she's even running yet, and I can't imagine she's that big of an asset in winning the seat. If the Liberals win GTA seats in the fall it won't be because they got Eve Adams on board. Most rationalizing it, but some Liberals on Twitter aren't taking it as well.

On the Cabinet shuffle, expect Nicholson to fade into the background. The main foreign affairs issue in the next few months is ISIL and the War on Terror. Kenney will be the point person on it. For better or worse he'll be exactly what the CPC wants him to be, and be much better at communicating than Nicholson was. Also, because he's in an Ottawa seat Pierre Poilievre got Kenney's job at Employment. So, we're kind of boned on that front.

The Adams announcement also pushes the cabinet re-shuffling down one notch in the news cycle.

I like this Adams woman. She seems like the Canadian Michelle Bachmann.

Sure, in the usual run of things Eve Adams would be a "get". But she's a poisoned chalice if there ever was one.

thinking the basic newscycle appeal of "Conservatives lose MP to liberals" outweighs any actual concerns or facts regarding her abilities/issues/dork husband/nomination/election details.

Maybe. If I'm Stephen Harper, I'm glad she's now Trudeau's problem and not mine. Her and her husband are liabilities. Poor judgement, zero loyalty, no respect for rules, hyper ambitious.

The next episode of Adams / Soudas show will reflect poorly on the Liberals, not the Conservatives.

That was more with respect to Soudas, who burned the PMO pretty badly. But the way Adams is jumping ship is pretty petulant as well.
