No one believes you, YouTube.
Most of us Canadians, and certainly any Canadians who read this blog, are overjoyed to have thrown out the party of far-right, tar sands social conservatives who have benighted this country for so long. Goodbye to the xenophobic, misogynist, Islamphobic, climate-change-ignoring, environmentalist-hating, Koch brothers-friendly, medieval holdover known as Stephen Harper. How wonderful it was to hear his concession speech, which someone on Facebook described as “best speech by a robot” while someone else just commented “smarmy goblin.”
We threw them out despite the fact that the vast majority of the corporate newspapers in the country backed the Conservative Party of Canada, running unavoidable wraparound front page ads on every paper the weekend before the election and printing glowing editorial endorsements.
We have never had a sadder federal election. The incumbent Conservative Party has used a racist, race-baiting strategy we normally associate with other places. The racism that has been whipped up will take a very long time to dissolve. A full of the population, or nearly a third, have proven themselves to be idiots, racists or more likely both.
Give the poor Crime Minister the chance he so desperately needs. Vote anybody but Conservative. Help Stasi Steve, Our Dear Leader, Stevil.. to stop all his relentless, exhausting fear-mongering… What is their dark agenda? What are they, roasting puppy dogs on sticks back there?
Help Marg Brings Change.

David Cameron’s mockery of Jeremy Corbyn always did sound nervous, and now it’s positively hysterical. At first I thought Cameron’s Tweet and Facebook post were hacks of his social media accounts, but apparently not.
The ad only lasted only 23 hours. Someone must have flagged it. Considering that it only went up on Easter Sunday and was taken down Easter Monday, some City Hall employee or Vision Vancouver party functionary must be pretty vigilant.
