Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flip flops, now slated to attend Calgary Stampede

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will attend the Calgary Stampede after all, backtracking on an earlier decision to skip the event that angered some Albertans.

Trudeau was a regular face at Stampede over the past few years, including in 2016 when he attended two pancake breakfasts and met with the premier. However, on July 4 this year, Trudeau’s spokesperson Cameron Ahmad told Postmedia he couldn’t attend due to scheduling constraints.

On Tuesday Ahmad backtracked, saying: “The Prime Minister is happy to be spending time in Calgary on Saturday following the National Governors Association conference in Rhode Island, and he is looking forward to celebrating Stampede alongside Albertans, as he has done for years.”

Ahmad said more details of exactly what Trudeau will be doing at Stampede will be issued on Friday. Last year Trudeau attended the pancake breakfasts of Liberal MPs Kent Hehr and Darshan Kang and also met with Premier Rachel Notley. However, Notley’s office said Tuesday there is no meeting with the PM scheduled at this point.

On Tuesday, Hehr’s office said they’re still negotiating specifics, but Hehr will likely spend the day with the PM.


“I do anticipate Kent is going to be with the prime minister a good portion of the day, but where exactly they’ll be doing and what they’ll be doing isn’t clear yet,” said Lisa Russell, a staff member in Hehr’s Calgary Office.

The change of heart comes following Trudeau’s Canada Day speech in which he forgot to mention Alberta. Trudeau listed Canada’s three territories and nine other provinces saying that regardless of where Canadians live: “We embrace that diversity while knowing in our hearts that we are all Canadians, and that we share a common pride in that red and white flag.”

Trudeau promptly apologized for the mistake, saying “I love you, Alberta” on stage and blowing a kiss. On Twitter, some dismissed it as an honest mistake while others argued it was an oversight emblematic of government policies they feel are harming the province. Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi downplayed the controversy, saying that he makes mistakes in speeches all the time.

Robb Aishford, director of communications for Kang, said they were hoping the prime minister would attend their pancake breakfast like he did last year but that won’t happen as they don’t have a breakfast scheduled for Saturday.

“I only heard about the visit yesterday from a friend in the system but in terms of more details we really don’t know yet,” said Aishford.

Fairly certain he won't be anywhere near a crowd of general Albertans.
He'll be in a safe space full of Liberal yes-men.
Hopefully we can boo loud enough for him to hear anyway.

Alberta had the largest percentage of people against the Khadr payout in the provincial breakdown of peopleAngus Reid's recent poll.

Guess the Liberals think all Justin needs to do is go there, smile, flip a few pancakes, show his cowboy socks and the anger will just melt away.....

He'll only be allowed at PMO set up events so he's surrounded by admirers

He'll only be allowed at PMO set up events so he's surrounded by losers, sycophants, communists, Lennists, Marxists, socialists, Trump haters, SJW's, assorted low life's, and miscellaneous c---sucking pieces of human garbage.

Fixed.

The man who did my physical testing for CF recruitment's nametag read "Kock".
As we were talking, I found out his name was Harald. Knowing what I was getting myself into, I made no comment other than "how's my time for these reps?"

As to the topic at hand.. I have to wonder why JuiceStain is now attending... perhaps his leash-holding spin-doctors really *are* concerned with how it appears he's is snubbing and personally shunning Alberta, knowing the good people in AB can see through his pretty-boy flirt-politics and empty gestures?

Speakin' of cocks, not one of my favorites but the song seems appropriate (in a purely imaginal context)

p.s. no helicopters were harmed in this post.

p.p.s. and that is how you run a thread off it's rails.

Between his failure to mention AB and Khadr he is out to kiss a few "Butts" attempting to gain a few points with us plebs.

One voice is all it takes. Reminds me of all the times I read Horton Hears a Who to my kids. If one shirker named Jojo can save Whoville, just a few more singular voices can rid Canada of the liberal menace.

I can't imagine the reception he'll get. Less than 2 weeks after disavowing Alberta as part of Canada? Should be nice.
