This CBC column is well worth a read. It's not often that the CBC calls out the bullshit from the opposition, but Neil Macdonald also calls out the bullshit from Question Period and the "theater" from journalists. #cdnpoli
Great Neil Macdonald column on #SNC-Lavalin and how each party played a bullshit theatrical role, puffing it up for social media and TV. Hypocrisy all round, plus Scheer's a hopeless actor. https://t.co/MtRnQ1SzjK
It is an absolute mystery to me why @CBCTheNational keeps Neil MacDonald off the air. His column today is another example of institutional knowledge, clarity of thought and wit that would benefit political coverage.
After reading what Neil Macdonald has to say about the "humid" Andrew Scheer and the opposition's Bullshit Theatre, I think Scheer should return to Parliament dressed for the occasion. https://t.co/tV86x4xaQY #cdnpoli
Neil Macdonald must be congratulated for this honest and balanced piece. Hopefully his next article will be on the current hyperactivity of media. The media at large have assumed a role that was never intended in a free society and its politics. https://t.co/tmumqe2Ewk
There's this weird conception going on on Liberal twitter right now - made worse by the Neil MacDonald op-ed - that Charlie Angus (and the NDP more broadly) are a load of hypocrites for having criticized JWR historically. This is B.S. for a lot of reasons. Let's list them!
It’s not easy 2 avoid being manipulated and 2 lose perspective today.Try 2 avoid being one of the mob & remember what politics is in the real world.
Read: Neil Macdonald’s-
Opposition is a caricature, and Scheer is a humid performer https://t.co/0KoGVv4w68
Neil MacDonald: opposition parties sometimes use antics, that’s why Trudeau’s attempt to pressure the AG to take unlawful action that might break an international treaty by blocking a corruption trial of a company that lives on the public dime is ok. https://t.co/lcmywE7nIf
Neil Macdonald today: An opposition MP can't possibly find fault with a minister in one capacity & defend her integrity in a different one.
Neil Macdonald, previously: bribery is basically good & corrupt corporations are just a fact of life.

No more ping pong politics.
No more voting out of fear.
It's time for something better.
It's time to put Canada and our kids first.

100 percent liberal propaganda, only thing missing is "This message has been approved by Justin Trudeau" CBC sucks!
Political change not climate change!! We are better then this!

2 problems with this column. W-R did say she felt her transfer out of AG was punishment for not agreeing to a DP. Harper's mandatory minimum legislation cannot be said to be an interference with judiciary. They simply changed the law, as was their prerogative. neil macdonald cbc
