    It sums it all up
    Yet rest assured Canadian people are still going to find justification for this obvious lack of respect and turn it around to fantasize that Canada still matters. Duh.

    Trudeau Sr, Chretien, Mulroney Harper all those commanded a ton more respect than that sorry twat.

    People can say what they want about Scheer, but unlike either Trump or Trudeau, he comes off as a statesman.

    Trudeau pinata 'just in fun'
    The Canadian Press - Jul 2, 2019 / 4:44 pm | Story: 260238

    Photo: Rob Newell
    The co-owner of a bar in central Alberta doesn't regret hanging up a large pinata of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the Canada Day weekend.

    Rob Newell admits, however, that in retrospect securing it with a rope around Trudeau's neck at Burgundy's Bar and Stage in Red Deer could have been done differently.

    "The only downfall was for structural reasons we had to Zip-Tie the rope around his neck because someone would hit it once, it would have fallen," Newell said Tuesday.

    The pinata idea was sound, he said, and customers in the bar got a kick out of it.

    "We were putting together the Canada Day party and I said it'd be funny to make a Justin Trudeau pinata. We filled it with money, candy and little notes of things he promised. It was all just in fun," he said.

    "It's no surprise that people in Alberta don't like the guy, so I knew it would get some traction."

    Newell said if Trudeau came into his bar, he'd be served just like any other customer. "I don't hate the guy."

    Finding a pinata of the prime minister wasn't easy, so Newell made it himself, he said.

    He said he isn't surprised by the online backlash, but noted there have been more bitter protests against the Trudeau government.

    He pointed to a convoy of big rigs from Western Canada that drove to Ottawa in protest of a perceived lack of federal support for the oil and gas industry.

    "I saw kids carrying signs with Trudeau on fire, and I thought that's a little intense," Newell said. "There's a lot more going on than a pinata at a party."

    Disgusting.

    ‘Protest papers’ lay out CSIS ties to oil sector — but redactions fuel mistrust
    CSIS collected info on peaceful protests of Indigenous groups, environmentalists: documents

    The issue is sharing it with private companies.

    In some instances the national interests and those of private companies are one in the same. Like it or not, oil is one of those instances. It's also worth noting that according to reports it was the private companies doing the sharing, not the other way around.

    CSIS isnt mandated to protect Canada's national interests and in no way should it be info sharing with privatized companies.

    So if Bruce Nuclear calls them and says a foreign firm is stealing sensitive technology and they provide the name of the firm and acts of espionage they have uncovered, CSIS should not take part in “sharing” this info?

    I only ask because @ConorMcGregorsBeard@ConorMcGregorsBeard says the companies were giving CSIS the information, not the other way around.


    Also build the fucking pipeline

    The article you posted said there were acting on info given to them by the privatized company.



    It's also kind of hard to entertain that CSIS isn't mandated to protect Canada's national interests.

    Informant: "Hey, this guy is planning to bomb a bunch of pipelines and potentially cripple the economy."
    CSIS: "Sorry, that's a privately owned pipeline. Our hands are tied."

    Well the bombing would be a security threat so easily falls within their mandate (defence of national security) bruv

    It both falls under literal physical security, and national economic security. The whole intelligence scene weirds me the fuck out, but this is a non-story being used to ramp up anti-pipeline advocates. Dog whistle politics at its finest.
