    TEAM CSSA E-NEWS June 8, 2021 Liberal Urgency for September Election

    Liberal Urgency for September Election?

    If Justin Trudeau is to be believed (he’s not), his party has no desire for an election today or in the foreseeable future.

    "Nobody wants an election before the end of this pandemic," Trudeau said. [i]

    Yet on June 4, 2021, CBC reported[ii] the Liberal Party activated its ‘state of electoral urgency’ clause which allows the Liberals to rewrite the rules for nominating candidates.

    Why the rush to fill those candidate slots? The Liberals have only 162 candidates in place, less than half of the required 338 to cover all federal ridings.

    On June 7, 2021, The Hill Times noted:[iii]

    “MPs voted last week to hold a special debate in the Chamber in which MPs who are not planning to run in the next election could make farewell remarks—suggesting they are expecting the next election will be held before Sept. 20.”

    The Liberals could drop the writ as late as August 15th and still meet the 36-day minimum required by the Elections Act for a September 20th election.

    But speculation is the Liberals plan to drop the writ on August 4th, setting us up for an election the day after Labour Day, September 7th, which ensures voters are back from their summer holidays.

    This plays directly into Justin Trudeau’s ongoing ‘one-dose summer’ talking point.

    “A one-dose summer sets us up for a two-dose fall, when we’ll be able to talk about going back to school, back to work, and back to more normality,” Trudeau said.[iv]

    Trudeau’s many reasons to send Canadians to the voting booth include some very favourable polling numbers.

    Using data published May 31st, CBC’s Poll Tracker puts the Liberals ahead of Conservatives 35.2% to 29.8%.[v]

    338Canada.com’s June 6th data narrows that gap slightly, placing Liberal support at 36.1% vs. 31.1% for the Conservative Party.[vi]

    CBC also opined: “The Conservatives would be a significantly weakened official opposition, if current polling levels held in a general election, losing as many as 20 seats versus the 119 they hold now.”

    And losing 20 seats is the low end of the estimate range we’ve seen recently. Some commentators double that estimate – which would be a total disaster for Canadian firearm owners.


    What does this mean for our community?

    1. If you want to keep your guns, get involved with your local Electoral District Association (EDA).
    2. Donate some of your hard-earned cash to the party of your choice. This is essential, a fact MP Michelle Rempel Garner made clear in her Facebook Live video published on June 7th.[vii]


    “Elections are won by financial resources. The Liberals are fundraising right now. I need you to donate five dollars, twenty bucks, whatever you can.”

    Michelle Rempel Garner is correct. The Liberals are fundraising like mad.

    In the five days from May 26th to May 31st alone, the Liberal Party sent out 14 fundraising emails with such choice lines as:

    • We can’t take our work for granted – and Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives have made no secret about their work to roll back our progress.
    • Meanwhile, we’ve seen Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives consistently oppose our progress for Canadians – whether it’s on our plan to deliver support for Canadians, fight climate change, keep our communities safe with stronger gun control, or so much more.
    • In a minority Parliament, we always need to stay ready for whenever Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives work to roll back our progress.


    The CSSA supports the Conservative Party of Canada because it is the only party favourable to gun owners that stands a chance of defeating Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to form government.

    1. Find your local Conservative EDA here: https://www.conservative.ca/team/edas/
    2. Reach out to your EDA’s board members and ask how you can help. Let them know your strengths and your weaknesses so they can find the right task for you.


    By taking this action right now, today, the guns you save will be your own.

    ... of course Trudeau doesn't want an election during the pandemic

    ... if the pandemic lasts 1 or 2 more years he'll ban every gun in Canada like the sneaking coward he is without having to answer a single question in question period or the scrum

    (with reservations)

    REALITY CHECK:
    ... the correct word is not "favorable"
    ... on the face of things the CPC appears to be "tolerant" of gun ownership with restrictions
    ... but we're not sure where O'Toole stands on anything these days
    ... he's all over the place like the lid on a hot skillet making pop corn
    ... true, it appears the CPC is not hell bent to destroy us like the Liberals are
    ... true, the CPC is the only other party with a snowballs chance of beating the Liberals and ousting Trudeau in the next election which is a must for the shooting sports to survive
    ... it's not about elect O'Toole it's about STOP Trudeau

    If you go to twitter, it appears the CPC is hell bent to destroy the CPC. "#TakeBackCanada" is being spun as the continuing TrumpismMAGA/Harperism/Racist.

    5 years ago Michelle Remple was a bubbly bouncing cheerleader. Today she looks run down.

    ... no wonder she's not smiling, the CPC is worse off with O'Toole than Scheer
    ... with Scheer there was basically NO message being sent to the public
    ... on the other hand there is a conflicting mishmash of messages from the O'Toole camp with no clearly defined policy direction on any given issue and an indication of an abandonment of basic conservative principles and by extension the usual CPC support groups
    ... I can understand non gun owners that normally vote Conservative becoming disgruntled with O'Toole's lack of leadership and party policy direction and voting for other candidates representing less gun tolerant political parties

    ... I would say O'Toole is "sinking" in approval ratings if he wasn't already stuck deep in the loon $hit on the bottom
    ... get out and enjoy your still legal handguns and semis while you can
    ... looks like another 4 years of king turd coming up

    ... a trite “limp dik” version of Trumpism
    ... O’Toole is the millstone that will drag the CPC down
    ... he’s an Archie Bunker clone but “dumber” and without the ballz

    Politics is a dirty byatch, even JT looks spent. The moment you step into the office that's the moment you give up your dreams and principles because reality sets in hard. No wonder no honest people want to hold an office...
