    National News: Statement By The Conservative Party Of Canada On Justin Trudeau


    Contributed by admin on Oct 28, 2013 - 11:06 PM





    Justin Trudeau has a famous last name, but he lacks the judgement to be Prime Minister.

    His only policy priority so far is to promote the legalization of marijuana. He wants to make it available for sale, like alcohol and tobacco. But that would dramatically increase its availability to minors and send the message that recreational drug use is acceptable.

    To highlight Justin Trudeau’s policy and his lack of judgement, the Conservative Party has released ads in communities across Canada.

    Stephen Harper’s Conservative Government is following a very different priority, working to help make our streets and communities safer. This includes combatting drug trafficking and grow-ops, especially in residential areas.

    Justin Trudeau and the Liberals don’t stop to consider the harmful effects of marijuana on users and society, especially when it comes to younger Canadians. Justin Trudeau’s plan to make marijuana more freely available without considering the consequences shows he doesn’t have the judgement to be Prime Minister. He’s in way over his head.

    Default Liberals stay clear of Senate scandal in new “Real Priorities” ad

    Liberals stay clear of Senate scandal in new “Real Priorities” ad




    Right about now you couldn't blame either of the federal opposition parties if they came out with a scathing attack ad against the Conservatives.

    With the ongoing Senate expense scandal, there's certainly lots of material to work with there.

    And hey: you'd have to believe that, if the roles were reversed — given their history — the Tories wouldn't hesitate in producing one of their 'classic' negative missives.

    But the Liberals chose a different strategy in their latest ad released late Wednesday.

    Titled 'Real Priorities', the video — published on YouTube — features leader Justin Trudeau telling Canadians about his desire to help Canada's middle class.




    Interestingly, not mentioning the Senate seems to be new tactic for Trudeau.

    During a speech at the Calgary Petroleum Club on Wednesday, the Canadian Press reported that Trudeau "never mentioned the words Mike Duffy or the Senate."

    The video seems to be a counter to the Conservative Party's latest campaign targeting Trudeau's alleged lack of policy positions.

    On Monday, the Tories released this statement on their website:

    Justin Trudeau has a famous last name, but he lacks the judgement to be Prime Minister.

    His only policy priority so far is to promote the legalization of marijuana. He wants to make it available for sale, like alcohol and tobacco. But that would dramatically increase its availability to minors and send the message that recreational drug use is acceptable.

    What do you think of the video? Will it be effective in countering the Harper Conservatives' narrative about Trudeau?

    Or should the Liberals have gone 'on the attack' against the Tories about the Senate expense scandal?

    Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

    Default Justin Trudeau says he fights for the middle class in new ad

    Justin Trudeau says he fights for the middle class in new ad

    OTTAWA — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is taking to the small screen to swipe back at Tory attacks on his pot policy — and take a swipe of his own at his rivals.

    An ad released Thursday, on the eve of the Conservative Party convention in Calgary, is aimed at bolstering Trudeau’s reputation as the only political leader fighting for Canada’s much politically courted middle class.

    “By now you’ve heard the Conservatives say I have the wrong priorities,” Trudeau says. “They mean, of course, that I don’t share their priorities. I couldn’t agree more.”

    The Conservatives jumped on Trudeau’s very first policy announcement earlier this year — his revelation he supports marijuana legalization. They’ve since gleefully taken regular jabs at the rookie leader for “supporting the drug trade” and failing to bring forward any other policy plans.

    “My priorities are the Canadians who built this country. The middle class, not the political class,” Trudeau continues in the 30-second ad, hinting at the ongoing Senate scandal dogging Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

    “My priority is an economy that benefits us all, not just a few. My priority is you. And if somebody says that priority is wrong, then ask yourself, what are their priorities?”

    The Liberals said the ad comes with a “significant” media buy in both French and English.

    Its release comes on the heels Trudeau’s speech in front of a big oil audience in Calgary on Wednesday, where he accused the Tories of fumbling Canada-U.S. relations and placing the Keystone XL pipeline project in jeopardy.

    The NDP wanted to decriminalize possesion years ago with Jack Layton promoting it. Seems Harper just wants to give the govs money to big corporations. To hell with that! that government needs to go I dont think that Canadians can go another couple years under the conservative rule. Man that Harper what a moron we have there, Must not have a grip on global change for marijuana and that the countries that have decrimed it are in a better position with crime going down as a direct result of legalizing marijuana. MORON he is. K.I.M.
