3. Trudeau keeps mentioning Poilievere's crypto plans and how anyone

who followed his advice to protect their retirement funds from inflation by investing in crypto currency just before crypto crashed, well they would have lost everything. Trudeau is going to stick it in Canadians minds no matter what.

4. LOL, good. I had not heard him say that but I tend to follow the opposition more

closely. My son got "advice" from his buddies on the oil rigs to invest in crypto. He called me, being that I am an ex-banker, and I told him I didn't really know a lot about it and it is like the old days of derivatives, if you don't understand it, then stay away from it. Luckily he took my advice. He is no longer working out on the rigs, he is in the office so hasn't heard all the whining. Curious to know how much they lost. They are mostly all conservatives so I can only guess where they got that advice.

5. Joseph Kennedy Sr. saw a shoeshine boy on Wall Street giving stock tips

and realized it was a bubble. He took all his money out of the stock market just before it crashed in 1929. Why the Kennedys were so rich. You could have done the same but I guess it is not easy to short crypto.

6. There's no way I'm going to let that weaselly liar lose my pension

On crypto scams. I'm 2 years away from 50 and worked for most of those years so should have a bit of something coming back.

I won't let a shyster like Pee-Pee steal that from me.

7. They have probably lost millions all together for people who followed Poilievre early.

8. Given what's happened already with crypto (the crash, the thefts, etc)

And Pee-Pee's shyster vibe...his crypto scam has all the signs of a pump and dump scheme.

He wouldn't make that much convincing just his followers, but scamming an entire country (against the will of the majority) into putting billions in to inflate value and cashing out immediately? That seems like his style.

Of course he would scapegoat the liberals in some way when caught...

9. He's less of a thief and more power hungry. The problem is his heart.

Conservatives play on emotions and policy to cause financial anxiety on people, then the voters vote on their passions (against the conservative picked scapegoats) not their best interests. Then there is no middle class as conservatives want voters with absolutely no power so they can rule autocratically, either by using an iron fist or by growing poverty. He is corrupt.

10. True.

When in my early 20's and starting to pay attention to things politically, I noticed the Conservative Party commercials rarely offered anything resembling policy plans or what they would do to actually help ordinary people.

All I ever saw were attack ads and character assassinations, and simple slogans condemning their perceived political enemies.

I remember Mulroney's arrogance and greed, (he fucking sued Canada itself for slander or something!) Mike Harris's contempt for poor people and natives, cutting financial aid to ones that needed it the most, Harper's fascism and muzzling of climate scientists because their facts and research made his oil industry financial backers look bad, Preston Manning's racism...the list goes on.

Canadian Conservative LIVE to divide and hurt Canadians!

11. Yes. Mulrooney did good on fighting Apartheid and that was it. Harris was intentionally

cruel as in wanting to social engineer using pain.
