What “Evidence-Based Decision Making” Really Means in Justin Trudeau’s Government...

Written by MetaCanada correspondent LicencetoShill Justin Trudeau has campaigned on a renewal of “evidence-based decision making” and promised an end to Harper’s so-called “anti-science” approach. But Trudeau has never actually explained what this phrase means or how he would apply it to his policies. Much like his “from the heart out” economic plan, this promise is clear as mud and while it seems straightforward, actions speak louder than words. “Evidence-based decision making” simply means that Trudeau has already made his decision, but needs to desperately find the evidence to support it even when the facts do not. We’ve seen this already on the missing and murdered Aboriginal women file. Trudeau’s Minister of Aboriginal Affairs has already come to a conclusion that colonialism and racism are to blame for the missing and murdered women, and even went so far as to say an aboriginal women is less likely to be murdered by a spouse or intimate partner than the women in the general population. That’s just plain false. While it’s true that out of the murdered aboriginal women proportionately less are killed by their spouses than the general Canadian population, since aboriginal women are murdered at disproportionately higher rate it means they are actually 4 times more likely to be murdered by a spouse or intimate lover. Despite any results from the $40 Million inquiry being wasted on someone who doesn’t understand simple math, a decision has apparently already been reached by Minister Carolyn Bennett. All she needs now is to spend a large amount of resources to find the evidence she wants. $40 Million may not be enough to overturn the clear facts and figures the RCMP already released but Trudeau will inevitably just raise the budget until he gets the evidence they want....

As a Conservative I am worried about what will happen to Canada if Stephen Harper wins again

When it comes down to it, I am truly concerned how the irrational left wing will respond should the Elections result in any form of Conservative victory.

“Strategic Voting” Is Stupid. Here Is Why It Won’t Work.

Strategic voting is bad for democracy and for establishing good government. And, as 2011 showed, it simply won’t work.

Poll Tracking – September 28

With twenty days to go in this Big Bertha of a campaign, the Conservatives have pulled into a ridiculously comfortable lead. After leader Stephen Harper came out strongly against niqab wearing at citizenship ceremonies, support for his Conservative Party has skyrocketed to an unheard of 70% support. It is literally off the charts. This number, while striking, should not come as a complete surprise, as a recent poll shows that 82% of Canadians agree with him on the issue. Thomas Mulcair‘s NDP took a hit this week for their proposal to make wearing niqabs mandatory at Canadian citizenship ceremonies. They now sit at 9%. After invoking his father’s name and crying during the foreign policy debate, Justin Trudeau‘s Liberals continued their downward trend to hit a campaign low of only 7%.  In a desperate attempt to save his floundering campaign, Trudeau returned to Nova Scotia to promise even more lobsters to the region, but the promise fell on the deaf ears of unemployed fisherman who are hesitant to trust a politician after so many promises of more lobsters have gone unfulfilled. After coming out in support of Stephen Harper’s niqab ban, Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe saw his party’s support rise to 6%. After being left out of the last two debates and subsequently taking to Twitter to have her voice heard, Elizabeth May‘s Green Party jumped to 5% support, their highest rating since July. Stay tuned for more poll analysis in the weeks to...

MetaCanada Reporter Nick Beard Removed From Harper Campaign Bus

Late Monday night, the Harper campaign’s tour bus coasted into Toronto, smoke emitting from the entire vehicle. Shortly afterwards, MetaCanada reporter Nick Beard was removed from the campaign bus, and officially booted from the media team travelling with the Conservatives. It was reported that Beard was smoking a marijuana cigarette in the bus washroom. When fellow journalists smelled the familiar odour, they reported it to bus security. “This is not something we tolerate on our campaign,” said Conservative campaign spokesman Kory Teneycke. “Mr. Beard has been removed from the bus and MetaCanada has had it’s CPC accreditation revoked for the duration of this campaign.” Shortly after the incident, MetaCanada issued the following statement: “The actions of Nick Beard do not reflect the values and standards that MetaCanada strains to uphold. His actions were unacceptable. “Effectively immediately, Mr. Beard is no longer employed by MetaCanada. “We unreservedly apologize to the Conservative campaign for the negative attention this has brought your campaign. “MetaCanada will continue to report objectively on this election, without our Conservative road reporter.” Nick Beard’s previous accomplishments include the direction of an award-winning segment documenting the plight of Kurdish refugees, as well as an exposé on fellow reporter Andy...
