Blackface and moral corruption for everyone

Well, apparently it’s OK to wear blackface and be morally corrupt. In a disappointing, but not surprising election result, Prime Minister Blackface gets to remain Canada’s head of government for at least another 2 years.

By winning a minority government, it appears that progressives have decided to reward the first sitting prime minister to twice be convicted of ethics violations; one who has embarrassed Canada internationally , angered out allies and proven himself to be a massive hypocrite, with a second term as prime minister, although with a slap on the wrist and a caucus 20 MPs smaller.

We can only hope that this has been a sufficient enough smack-down for him to at least be a LITTLE humble about the result. Not likely, though, given his narcissism and ego.

Although I’m disappointed with the result, this might still be a chance that the Trans-mountain Pipeline expansion, which Trudeau has stated will go ahead, will actually come to fruition. Although the Green Party and the NDP will refuse to support the pipeline construction, Trudeau will be able to count on Conservative support.

Trudeau will have one last chance to prove to the western provinces that he is serious about getting Alberta oil to tidewater. Let’s hope for the unity of the country that he’s serious about building the pipeline.

As an added bonus, the Justice Committee may now finally be able to get to the bottom of the SNC-Lavain scandal, seeing as they are now outnumbered by the opposition parties. This is the same scenario that saw Kathleen Wynne’s government in Ontario forced into cooperating in the investigation into the gas plants scandal, one that saw former Premier Dalton McGuinty’s former Chief of Staff sentenced to jail.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been put on probation, and so has my faith in the electorate in Canada. Let’s see if anything positive comes out of this election result.
