Quote from: Bullfrog on October 22, 2019, 01:29:02 PMCan't stand listening to Scheer. He hasn't even returned to Ottawa and all he does is answer every question with "when this government falls, we'll be ready to lead the country." Same answer for every question.
QuoteScheer is not Harper; nor is he Ford. But what both the Harper and Ford governments teach us is that politicians who espouse views like those held by Scheer tend to be closely connected to one another, not only because they make similar policy decisions but also because they surround themselves with similar people.Much more than the Ford government, the Harper government shows us that a leader can promise not to re-open the abortion and same-sex marriage debates while still making policy decisions that undermine the rights of women and LGBTQ individuals.So those who claim that Scheer's positions on a woman's right to choose and a same-sex couple's right to marry are irrelevant so long as he refuses to re-open debate are missing the point.
Quote...it is often pragmatic for political parties at different levels to maintain separation, because it allows them to pursue necessary policies in their jurisdiction, which might not be popular with the party at the other level. The following examples, noted by journalist John Ibbiston, illustrate this point well:[t]he federation always worked best when opposite parties inhabited Queen's Park and Parliament Hill. Frost and St. Laurent; Davis and Trudeau; even Peterson and Mulroney, at least on constitutional matters. Things always seemed to deteriorate, however, when identical parties were in both ministers' offices. John Diefenbaker had a testy relationship with Leslie Frost; Bill Davis's relations with Brian Mulroney were far less cordial than with Pierre Trudeau. And there were the epic confrontations between Mitch Hepburn and McKenzie King.

Interesting.The NDP started out as a Prairie/Farmer's party and they do have a pretty good rural/agrarian support as well as good support among indigenous voters.
