NDP attack ad exposes Doer jitters

This is new. The NDP of Manitoba are running scared.

On Tuesday they defiantly threw down their opening card in the next provincial election. A deuce. An "attack ad" that was so bad it deserves to be filed under J for Jump The Shark.

It turns out the NDP's election plan is to attack --- Gary Filmon, a man who left politics almost SEVEN YEARS AGO.

And why not? What else do they have?
Their record?

The Crocus Scandal
The latest leaks of internal government documents prove that the Premier, the Finance Minister and, hell, the entire NDP cabinet knew, beginning in the year 2000, that unsuspecting investors were being enticed to put their pension savings in the Crocus Fund which was so broke it was being run as a Ponzi scheme, with the money from new investors going to pay off old investors.

The NDP kept changing laws to disguise the precarious financial position of Crocus, which still had enough money to make a political donation to the NDP. For four years thousands more people got suckered into the Fund. Today, the latest poll shows that almost half of NDP voters want an inquiry into Crocus. If there ever is one, Gary Doer, Greg Selinger, maybe even Gord Macintosh, the Justice Minister who did nothing to stop the Ponzi, could find themselve facing criminal charges.

Health Care
The to-do list:
End Hallway Medicine. Done? No
End the nursing shortage. Done? No
End the doctor shortage Done? No
Keep emergency wards open. Done? No
Reduce waiting lists? Done...? Define waiting list every doctor has his own waiting list some are long and some are small there's no way to measure wait times we're working on it we need more money we need computers we need more nurses who need more doctors we need more time BLAME GARY FILMON.

Anyone who has been to a hospital or knows someone who has been in hospital knows what a disaster the healthcare system has become after six years of NDP rule.
The nursing shortage is double what it was when the NDP was first elected and the "non-partisan" nurses union thinks that's just peachy keen; the shortage was triple a couple of years ago.

People have died waiting for heart surgery, people have died in waiting rooms, and now we learn Manitoba is No. 1 in stillbirths.

The "short-term" solution of bribing doctors to work in understaffed emergency wards in Winnpeg has become permanent. In the rest of the province the emergency wards are just shut down under further notice.

Public Safety
Car theft is out of control. 10,000 stolen cars a years is considered a good year. Now success is measured by the increase in attempted thefts.

Gangs are out of control. The NDP came into office sneering they were going to replace the Tories' punitive attitude to gangs with a holistic approach. Six years later, there's more gangs than ever and they're more brazen than ever before.

Gangs intimidate the Convention Centre into cancelling a music act. A man is shot to death in his car in broad daylight on Magnus Avenue. A gang armed with knives tries to fight its way into the home of a Crown Attorney they want to intimidate; the association representing Manitoba prosecutors says theyve warned the government for years of the threats they've been getting "but they haven't been receptive."

The Economy
Manitoba has become the Newfoundland of the Prairies. The NDP have turned it into a welfare province; it survives on federal government handouts. The NDP routinely overspends the annual budget by a couple of hundred million dollars, making a mockery of the budget process in the Legislature. Public debt is so high we're one recession away from runaway deficits.

The NDP has put all its hopes into an east-west energy grid that will justify building the $10 billion Conawapa dam and $1.5 billion transmission line to Ontario. The Globe and Mail yesterday reported how "Natives hold the key to Ontario power" because the transmission lines would pass through their territory.

That means the future of the east-west energy grid can be summed up in two words: ki-bosh. Can anyone remember the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline? They've been negotiating that one with the natives of B.C. for 30 years now.

Is it any wonder then that the NDP wants to turn the next election into a personality contest? They're hoping Gary Doer still has enough one-liners in him to defeat Stone Cold Hugh McFadyen. Our guy against their guy. Mano a mano. Except that it's going to be Doer vs. McFadyen and Gary Filmon, of course.

The new leader of the Progressive Conservatives should be in the catbird seat, the operative word being "should."

Except he can't decide what issue to base his campaign on.

Crocus? No.
Health Care? Yes. Wait, no.
Infrastructure? Yes. Oh, waitaminit.
Youth? Yes, that's it. Unless...
Crocus? Maybe. What do the polls say?

The Liberal Party, as usual, is on another planet. They've decided to stake out the environment as their issue. They plan to run a totally Green carbon-neutral campaign. One unknown candidate has decided to forego lawn signs, ensuring she will remain unknown to voters. Leader Jon Gerrard will plant a tree in Brazil or Ecuador or some tropical island for every mile he drives during the campaign. Cockamamie doesn't begin to describe this.

The real Green Party has 100 percent of the Moonbat vote. And a 100 percent of zero chance of winning a single seat in the Legislature.

With opposition like this, the NDP should be on cruise control. Instead, they're scared. They've written off the 34,000 Crocus investors; just look at how cavalierly they dismiss anyone who calls for a full inquiry. They're hoping ads attacking Gary Filmon will turn the trick with diehard NDP voters.

Any day now they'll be promising to end car theft in six months.

It may sound cockamamie, but it worked once, didn't it?

The unreported bombshell conspiracy evidence in the Trudeau/SNC-Lavelin scandal

Wow. No, double-wow. A game-changing bombshell lies buried in the supplementary evidence provided to the House of Commons Judiciary Committee by former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. It has gone virtually unreported since she submitted the material almost a week ago. As far as we can find, only one journalist-- Andrew Coyne, columnist for the National Post--- has even mentioned it and even then he badly missed what it meant, burying it in paragraph 10 of a 14 paragraph story. The gist of the greatest political scandal in modern Canadian history is well-known by now. It's bigger than Adscam, the revelation 15 years ago that prominent members of the Liberal Party of Canada and the party itself funneled tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks into their own pockets from federal spending in Quebec sponsoring ads promoting Canadian unity. That was just venal politicians and a crooked political party helping themselves to public money. The Trudeau-Snc-Lavalin scandal is

Crips and Bloodz true cultural anchors of Winnipeg's aboriginal gangs

(Bebo tribute page to Aaron Nabess on the right, his handgun-toting friend on the left) At least six murder victims in Winnipeg in the past year are linked to a network of thuglife, gangster rap-styled, mainly aboriginal street gangs calling themselves Crips and Bloods after the major black gangs of L.A. The Black Rod has been monitoring these gangs for several months ever since discovering memorial tributes to victim Josh Prince on numerous pages on, a social networking website like Myspace and Facebook. Josh Prince , a student of Kildonan East Collegiate, was stabbed to death the night of May 26 allegedly while breaking up a fight. His family said at the time he had once been associated with an unidentified gang, but had since broken away. But the devotion to Prince on sites like Watt Street Bloodz and Kingk Notorious Bloodz (King-K-BLOODZ4Life) shows that at the time of his death he was still accepted as one of their own. Our searches of Bebo have turned up another five ga

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. There, we said it.

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. Oh, you won't find anyone official to say it. Yet . Like relatives trying to appear cheery and optimistic around a loved one that's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the people in power are in the first stage of grief -- denial. The prognosis for Hydro was delivered three weeks ago at hearings before the Public Utilities Board where the utility was seeking punishingly higher rates for customers in Manitoba. It took us this long to read through the hundred-plus pages of transcript, to decipher the coded language of the witnesses, to interpret what they were getting at, and, finally, to understand the terrible conclusion.  We couldn't believe it, just as, we're sure, you can't--- so we did it all again, to get a second opinion, so to speak.  Hydro conceded to the PUB that it undertook a massive expansion program--- involving three (it was once four) new dams and two new major powerlines (one in the United States)---whi

Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP's Christian-bashing, cop-smearing, other star candidate

As the vultures of the press circle over the wounded Liberal Party of Manitoba, one NDP star candidate must be laughing up her sleeve at how her extremist past has escaped the scrutiny of reporters and pundits. Parachuted into a safe NDP seat in Winnipeg's North End, she nonetheless feared a bruising campaign against a well-heeled Liberal opponent.  Ha ha.  Instead, the sleepy newspeeps have turned a blind eye to her years of vitriolic attacks on Christianity, white people, and police. * She's spent years  bashing Christianity  as the root cause of all the problems of native people in Canada. * She's called for  a boycott of white businesses . * And with her  Marxist research partner, she's  smeared city police as intransigent racists . Step up Nahanni Fontaine, running for election in St. John's riding as successor to the retiring Gord Macintosh. While her male counterpart in the NDP's galaxy of stars, Wab Kinew, has responded to the controversy over

Exposing the CBC/WFP double-team smear of a hero cop

Published since 2006 on territory ceded, released, surrendered and yielded up in 1871 to Her Majesty the Queen and successors forever. Exposing the CBC/FP double-team smear of a hero cop Some of the shoddiest journalism in recent times appeared this long August weekend when the CBC and Winnipeg Free Press doubled teamed on a blatant smear of a veteran city police officer. In the latest example of narrative journalism these media outlets spun stories with total disregard for facts that contradicted the central message of the reports which, simplified, is: police are bad and the system is covering up. Let's start with the story on the taxpayer funded CBC by Sarah Petz that can be summed up in the lead. "A February incident where an off-duty Winnipeg officer allegedly knocked a suspect unconscious wasn't reported to the province's police watchdog, and one criminologist says it shows how flawed oversight of law enforcement can be." There you have it. A policeman, not

Winnipeg needs a new police chief - ASAP

When did the magic die? A week ago the Winnipeg police department delivered the bad news---crime in the city is out of control. The picture painted by the numbers (for 2018) was appalling. Robberies up ten percent in  a single year.  (And that was the good news.) Property crimes were up almost 20 percent.  Total crime was 33 percent higher than the five year average. The measure of violent crime in Winnipeg had soared to a rating of 161.  Only four years earlier it stood at 116. That's a 38 percent deterioration in safety. How did it happen? How, when in 2015 the police and Winnipeg's police board announced they had discovered the magic solution to crime? "Smart Policing" they called it.    A team of crime analysts would pore through data to spot crime hot-spots and as soon as they identified a trend (car thefts, muggings, liquor store robberies) they could call in police resources to descend on the problem and nip it. The police
