The Real Numbers Into Justin Trudeau's Landslide Victory

Yesterday I pointed out that Sun's Mark Dunn a former Liberal stated that Justin has his work cut out for him if Libs want to win the 2015 election.

Well now Ezra just reconfirms that.  He has dug down deep into the numbers of Justin Trudeau's so called landslide victory on Sunday.  Watch:

Justin Trudeau and the Liberals To Form Government in 2015?

Not so fast. According to the Sun's Mark Dunn, they have an up hill battle to climb. 
Now that the coronation is complete, the big question is where does the hobbled party go from here?
And don't think for a moment a bounce in the polls that follows popularity contests will cement into permanent gains.

And the hype about the threat Trudeau would pose to the NDP and Conservatives in 2015 is wishful thinking among his media cheerleaders and their frustration with a Conservative government.
There's a mountain of work to climb. The question is: Are Liberals up to it?
The party lacks a ground game in more than 100 ridings.
Winning an historical low of 34 seats in 2011 exposed the organizational neglect and waning grassroots interest.

And with 30 new ridings in play in 2015, those woes will be exacerbated. The party is not rich.
Bills from a string of debates, town halls and showcase events are mounting.
Its financial lifeline known as the per-vote subsidy is drying up.
Fundraising is sporadic. Star candidates are not forming a line to carry the banner.
And talk of socking away a rainy day fund to counter attack ads is bravado.
Just ask Stephane Dion and Michael Ignatieff about how the party rushed to their rescue at their time of need. They were left to bleed.
Trudeau's father, Pierre, had the Big Red Machine.
His son inherited a Little Red Wagon. A fresh coat of paint only hides the rust.

And it was mostly non-party members who picked the leader. Support is fickle.
The party is in sad shape. Whispers about forming government in 2015 is the talk of fools.
 Dunn should know, he used work for the Liberal party.
That does not mean though  Conservatives should be apathetic.    On the contrary, Conservatives must be vigilant and work hard.  Just think of the alternative.

NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair Anti-Christian

 Thomas Mulcair revealed his ant-Christian views on Monday, calling evangelicals "anti-Canadian."  He said that Christians do not hold Canadian values.
OTTAWA - NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair lashed out at evangelical Christian groups Monday, accusing them of going "completely against" Canadian values and law with their beliefs about homosexuality.

  Christianity is a religion and the last time I looked freedom of religion is protected in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms under Section 2, Fundamental Freedoms starting with the preamble.
Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law:

Guarantee of Rights and Freedoms

Marginal note:Rights and freedoms in Canada
 The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.

Fundamental Freedoms

Marginal note:Fundamental freedoms
 Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
  • (a) freedom of conscience and religion;
  • (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
  • (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
  • (d) freedom of association.

Thomas Mulcair is a lawyer and a Catholic. He should know better.  

Canada's coat od armsCanada has a rich Judeo-Christian heritage. including our coat of arms.
The founders of this country built Canada on the Word of God, as can be seen in many examples. The name “Dominion of Canada”, the motto of Canada, “He shall have dominion from sea to sea” and the phrase on Canada’s coat of arms “A mari usque ad mare” (Latin for: From sea to sea”) are taken from PSALM 72:8.
When, in 1866, the fathers of Confederation were assembled to discuss the terms for uniting the Canadian provinces, Leonard Tilley - premier of New Brunswick - suggested the word “Dominion” from PSALM 72 for the new country. A letter signed by John A. MacDonald - Canada’s first prime minister - explained to Queen Victoria that the name was “a tribute to the principles they earnestly desired to uphold.” The last province to join Canada was Newfoundland whose motto is “Seek ye first the kingdom of God” (MATTHEW 6:33).

From Jacques Cartier to Sir Samuel Leonard Tilley, Chritianity played a major role.  Even in education system was founded by the Christain faith. 
In 1533, Jacques Cartier sailed up the St. Lawrence River to MontrĂ©al. To commemorate the founding of MontrĂ©al, Cartier wrote in his diary “…we all kneeled down in the company of the Indians and with our hands raised toward heaven yielded our thanks to God.”
The “Father of New France,” Samuel de Champlain, wrote in his diary about the natives, “…(the aborigines are) living without God and without religion…I thereupon concluded in my private judgement that I should be committing a great sin if I did not make it my business to devise some means of bringing them to the knowledge of God.”
In 1886, William Howland ran for Mayor of Toronto. During his campaign, Howland would urge voters, “Let us keep the city, a God-fearing city, and I would rather see it thus than the greatest and richest city in the continent”. He won and became Toronto’s 25th Mayor.
David Thompson, explorer and statesman, developed maps from his surveys between 1784 and 1812. Many of his maps are still being used today. Thompson’s words give the reason he endured the physical hardship of exploration “so that these physically impenetrable barriers may be traversed and the Gospel be spread.”
Sir Samuel Leonard Tilley, Premier of New Brunswick and one of the Fathers of Confederation, rose each morning to start his day with prayer and Scripture reading. As the 33 fathers gathered in Charlottetown to discuss and draft the terms of the British North American Act, there are were many suggestions on what to call this new “United Canada.” That morning, as Tilley read from Psalm 72:8, he became so convinced that Canada should be a nation under God, that when he came down to the Conference session, he presented the inspired “Dominion of Canada.” The other Fathers readily agreed and accepted. Today, The following words hang in the corridor near the confederation Chamber in Province House: “In the hearts of the delegates who assembled in this room on September 1, 1864, was born the Dominion of Canada. Providence being their guide they builded better then they knew.”

The Education System

Bishop John Strachan, a leader who helped form our public education system, stated that “the church must continue to play a central role in education. You cannot divorce religion from education because schools will inevitably reflect the philosophical and religious or (irreligious) biases of those who direct them.”
Egerton Ryerson, father of public education in Canada, wanted a “common patriotic ground of comprehensiveness and avowed (or maintain) Christian principles.” He wrote the textbook First Lessons in Christian Morals which was published in 1871. Ryerson clearly said that the Ontario school system was to be a “Christian public school system.”
Many of our greatest Canadian universities were founded as denominational seminaries to educate future church leaders:
-King’s College in Nova Scotia, now know as Dalhousie University, was founded by the Anglicans.
-The University of Ottawa, founded by the Roman Catholic Church, and one of Canada’s first bilingual Universities. (Corrected as of December 14, 2010)
-McMaster University, was founded by the Baptists.
The Ontario Public School Act of 1896 stated that “It shall be the duty of every teacher of a public school to teach diligently and faithfully all of the subjects in the public school course of study; to maintain proper order and discipline in his pupils in his school; to encourage his pupils in the pursuit of learning; to include, by precept and example, respect for religion and the principles of Christian morality and the highest regard for truth, justice, love of country, humanity, benevolence, sobriety, industry, frugality, purity, temperance and all other virtues.”

Even the father of medicare,and founder of  the NDP party,Tommy Douglas, was a Baptist preacher.  
 Wonder what Mulcair has to say about Douglas and some of his views
Could it also be the sadness of knowing that Douglas, during his time as federal leader of the NDP, believed homosexuality, even though decriminalized, should be "recognized for what it is -- a mental illness, a psychiatric condition, which ought to be treated sympathetically by psychiatrists and social workers?"

Why Can't We Have That "A" Word Debate?

I have always been baffled about why we can't talk about abortion in Canada.  They have no problem in other countries discussion this issue like in the United States where the "A" word debate is on going and all sides are free to speak.  Why is it so taboo here?   Why is it  the attempt to always censor those especially on the pro-life side?  

In Abbortsford BC on private property owner has erected crosses to symbolize the number of abortions performed in Canada each week.  Ezra Levant makes a good argument about why those offended are tying to censor this property owner's freedom of  speech and why we need to have that talk.
 Joyce Arthur, executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition, has written to the mayor of Abbotsford demanding the city order the private landowner to take them down.
"Many women having abortions are not Christian and would find it doubly offensive to have their abortion represented by a cross."
So, because Arthur thinks someone could be offended, the city ought to tear down the crosses.
The silent monument is a "misappropriation of a woman's private experience that is absolutely no one's business."
So, in the name of a fake privacy violation and the counterfeit human right not to be offended, Arthur demands the government should violate the real privacy and property rights of a landowner, as well as his freedom of speech.
This is not a debate about abortion. It's a debate about whether we're allowed to have a debate about abortion. It's the censorship of the discussion itself.

Ezra also suggests that there needs to be a change in the culture and we need to making it cool to go through a pregnancy if changes are to be made.
We need to change the culture - to make going through with a pregnancy as socially fashionable as abortions have been made; to make adoptions easier; to bring back a culture of sex and life, to counter the culture of sex and death. That's a discussion Joyce Arthur wants to stop.
I agree. The culture in this country we've had, for the last forty some odd years been pro-abortion (or a culture of death is what I call it.)  As long as our culture is like that it is going to be  an uphill battle for pro-lifers to get change in our legislation but we need to press on.  

I just want to say thank you to Ezra Levant, Michael Coren, Brian Lilley and others at Sunnews discussing a subject that others refuse to.

Why Is This News?

The Idle No More protests and Chief Theresa's liquid diet has lost support of the public. Parliament is not in session, the Liberal party leadership debate the other day was nothing much to really write about so the media party has to find something to report.

Void of any real news, they come out with this:  
Stephen Harper makes a grammatical error on Twitter
We're all guilty of grammar faux pas every now and again — especially on social media.
It's not a big deal — unless you're the prime minister of Canada.
Stephen Harper, or one of Stephen Harper's ghost-tweeters, made a grammatical error on Monday while posting a picture in commemoration of President Barack Obama's inauguration.
The grammatical error — of course — is the 'I.' The tweet should have read "One of my favourite photos of @barackobama and me."

Really?  Come on! This crap? So what? Who cares? Why is this even news?  

Gee, the author of this garbage admits that we all make mistakes every now and then and that this is no big deal but why bring it up then?  Are there no real stories out there to report on?

How about doing some investigative journalism into maybe how some of these big Indian Chiefs on some of the reserves are really spending our money or why the cops aren't forcing the law at the Idle No More blockades?  Oh wait, that would be too hard and  most likely wouldn't fit into the narrative that the Stephen Harper government is mean and racist.  

No wonder fewer and fewer people are paying attention to the media party anymore.    They keep continuing to lose credibility everyday.

They call themselves "professionals?"  Ha! This kind of stuff is not even worthy of a  sixth grade newsletter.
