What CTV Failed To Cover!

The MSM is busy supporting the Liberals, so much so that they showed only what was favorable to the opposition during Question Period. I just happened to capture Lisa in a huge smack down of Goodale. Of course the MSM didn't show this, so make sure you watch Goodale getting his due. Hiding behind her skirts...it would be funny if it wasn't so serious.



And, for all you lefties japping about Lisa being insensitive towards cancer patients, her brother Colin MacCormack, died at 37 because of lung cancer. YOU STUPID LEFTY JERKS!

I want every MP in Parliament to stand up and apologize to her for their insensitivity towards her brother, a cancer victim. I want every journalist who condemned her, to write an article about how punishing it must have been for her to lose her brother to cancer.

How rewarding it must be for her to think that she can help other cancer victims, by getting the 57 year old Chalk River reactor back up and running. No wonder she thought it was challenging.

You sick little opportunists, making her a target of your own failures. Goodale failed to get the Maple reactors running, and he stands in the house and condemns Lisa for trying to fix what the Liberals were unable to do in over 13 years?

PM Harper was right, it is cheap politics, but that is the only type of politics the Liberals/NDP/Bloc know. The MSM is just as responsible for this mess. CTV was more interested in a "got you" story than ethics. They knew that they had to be careful, that's why they consulted their lawyers.

Apologize? The opposition needs to apologize to Lisa, for the smear job. Funny how the incompetent aide has been lost in the feeding frenzy that is the opposition. What would her Liberal fund raising Father say, if the lazy, slack a$$ reporters even bothered to hunt him down and ask him a question.

Lisa did nothing wrong. Her aide lost a "secret" file at CTV, and now we find out she lost a tape in a bathroom. She is the problem, but not one reporter is interviewing her, is that because Iggy thinks a 27 year old is too tender to be fired? In Alberta this week a 14 year old killed two people, randomly, but a 27 year old doesn't understand that one of her responsibilities is keeping track of a binder and a tape?

For $120,000 plus pension, I would like to apply for the communications job that has just been vacated, I can attest to the fact that I am a Conservative, and I know how to keep track of documents.

Hey isotopes are sexy!

Who hired the aide?

It's time for Ms. Dim Bulb to gooooo...

Audrey II said...

I seem to have missed the part where any MP has been commenting on Ms. Raitt's brother.

Oh, wait... did I interrupt and emotional attempt to conflate her brother's death with criticism of Ms. Raitt's "sexy" comments? My bad.

Fortunately, no one has referred to Colin MacCormack's plight as a "sexy" opportunity to make a name for themselves. That sort of thing would indeed be indicative of a "sick little opportunist". Know anyone who's done something like that lately?

Bec said...

Anyone that is current enough in today's casual lingo and uses, "my bad" also knows how the term "sexy" is being used.

When the MP's generalize and speak about cancer as though they SPEAK for all cancer victims, that is opportunistic. It suggests that she was callous about the disease and what Hunter is pointing out is that Minister Raitt, had no such intentions.
In fact, this information was dug up by good research, not Minister Raitt speaking of her own personal pain and so far, good journalism is hard to find because it has not been widely reported by the regulars in the pirahna tank.

As for the aid being hired, she was already in the department. Minister Raitt, inherited her.

Mary HInes said...

I just wish we had "one reporter" who would write an article such as this.... This is the first time, I ever heard of the Minister's brother. I have turned CTV NewsNet off - I was sick and tired of hearing Bob Fife's 5 minute blurps for his liberal party over and over... I am outraged that the reporters have given this dear little "Aid" such a free trip. There is far more to this story than has been reported, and no way, would a daughter of a highly connected liberal "big shot" be as innocent as she has been protrayed by the liberal media. If they were at all anxious to find out the truth, this dear little liberal aid would be front and center....

Southern Quebec said...

To quote "he who must not be mentioned": How many times was SARS mentioned as "sexy", or the listeria outbreak as "sexy"?

*tap* *tap* *tap*
*crickets*

Southern Quebec said...

Cue the faux outrage, Mary, Mary quite contrary...

Bec said...

SQ, have you even listened to the tape?
The word 'sexy' is not used anywhere near the context, in which you suggest.
It is used to describe the 'challenge' of getting Chalk River etc up to snuff. The ENTIRE picture is what you are dismissing.
Including the simple fact that 2 women are having a private, gab fest, brainstorming, all the while trying to get to know each other. This is JANUARY 30th. There was NO isotope shortage or crisis. This was about the facility and it's challenges.

Btw, what does the end of your post suggest? I'm sure it is intended as a huge compliment, right?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Well done, Hunter!

Yes, indeed. Why are we only hearing one side of the story from CTV?

Neo Conservative said...

The entire House of Commons could hide behind Raitt's skirt. She's got a huge ass.

You got a bog ass Hunsty?

Ruth said...

We come to these sites for the info that we don't get from CTV Newsnet.
We don't come to read the insults posted by Liberal trolls.
If you haven't anything good to say, then just get back to work.

Alberta Girl said...

"Who hired the aide?"

Hey dimbulb......the "aide" was already there.

Think before you type SQ.

And I would say that we have some trolls pretending to be someone who is actually smart. Although given how a certain someone (LS) acts over there, I would point my finger right at him.

mystereeoso said...

Where was the big smackdown you "just happened" to find. Raitt's responses to Goodale are pallid, Huntsy.

Re Bec: "This is JANUARY 30th. There was NO isotope shortage or crisis. This was about the facility and it's challenges."

Um... check your timeline! When did chalk River start leaking again?


Re:" Who hired the aide?" Gary Lunn. The same subgenius who fired Linda Keen.

Alberta Girl said...

"Re:" Who hired the aide?" Gary Lunn. The same subgenius who fired Linda Keen."

Do you have proof of that mysty..

mystereeoso said...

Re ABG "Do you have proof of that mysty.."

Proof that MacDonnell used to work for Lunn, that Lunn is a subgenius or that Lunn fired Linda Keen?

Hey faux neo conservative, you wanna see a fatass? take a gander at mine.

People go read:

But nuclear-medicine specialists are questioning why AECL and the government walked away from the project without a contingency plan.

Robert Atcher, the New Mexico-based president of the Society of Nuclear Medicine, said doctors are asking “Well, they've built the infrastructure, why don't they consider using some other reactor design?”

A committee struck by the U.S. National Research Council to examine ways of producing medical isotopes without highly enriched uranium – which the Americans fear could be used to build bombs – suggested in a recent report using a different kind of core for the Maples.

Thomas Ruth, a senior research scientist at the British Columbia Cancer Agency and TRIUMF – Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics – was also a member of that committee. He said the decision to walk away from the Maples was probably tied to political and business issues.

“To the non-expert, it looks like a solution,” Dr. Ruth said yesterday of the committee's recommendation to use different cores.

“They have the processing facility, they have the control room, the infrastructure is all there. What is involved with changing out the core? ... But government is supporting [AECL] in that decision. It's not like government is saying, ‘Hey, guys, get in there, fix it, find a solution.' They're not doing that.”

It's the opposition sewer rats who are making this faux pas much worse in order to ENHANCE THEIR OWN CAREERS. Who exactly are the ones milking this "sexy" topic? The sewer rats, of course.

Way to go, lefty losers, upsetting cancer patients like that. Idiots!

mystereeoso said...

Way to go soccermom! RahRah!

Lisa Raitt:“You know what? Good. Because when we win on this, we get all the credit. I’m ready to roll the dice on this. This is an easy one. You know what solves this problem? Money. And if it’s just about money, we’ll figure it out. It’s not a moral issue.”

Gayle said...

Hate to break this to you Bec, but the criticisms of Raitt are partly based on the way she used the term "sexy". We all know the context. It is just that she seemed so delighted in the way this issue would be sexy enough for media coverage which would, in turn, assist her career.

As for this:

"When the MP's generalize and speak about cancer as though they SPEAK for all cancer victims, that is opportunistic."

would you say the same about government MP's who purport to speak for ALL families with children, or ALL victims of crime?

Alberta Girl said...

"You know what solves this problem? Money. And if it’s just about money, we’ll figure it out. It’s not a moral issue.”

And Mysty....is she wrong. Does money not solve all the worlds problems. What's the big deal?

Face it - if they had all the money in the world to hire the Dr. and Nurses to administer the isotopes - to get everyone an MRI to screen for cancer - to get everyone the treatments they need when they need them - well it would be a great world right.

She spoke the truth, mysty. Quit reading something that is not there.

mystereeoso said...

Sweetheart , that is a nice try but here's the thing - the country has enough money to embark on a deficit of over fifty billion dollars. That's not penny candy money. Where are the government's priorities? Let's have at it and actually fix a few things up. Some people think it can be done. Why not enable them to do their work instead of playing partisan games? That would be my point.

mystereeoso said...

Or to put it a little more simply as you seem kind of obtuse, why is our government NOT striving to create a more perfect world? Is there something wrong with the idea of an MRI for anyone who needs it?

wilson said...

Here is an example of sexy issues for political purposes,
war, dead people, terrorists etc:

'...Col. Davis gave perhaps the most remarkable testimony in Mr. Hamdan's case.
He resigned as chief prosecutor of the military commission in 2007 because of what he viewed as unlawful influence.

On the witness stand, he painted a vivid picture of
the pressure he was under from superiors to prioritize "sexy" cases for maximum political benefit....''

sexy for POLITICAL PURPOSES

POLITICAL PURPOSES - operative phrase.

Lisa Raitt: "Because when we win on this, we get all the credit. I’m ready to roll the dice on this. This is an easy one. ”

Alberta Girl said...

"That's not penny candy money. Where are the government's priorities"

And you weren't in line demanding that they provide "stimulus" to "save" the auto sector. Puleeze.

"Is there something wrong with the idea of an MRI for anyone who needs it?"

Absolutely not - that would be wonderful - as soon as you and your ilk quit screaming about how "wonderful" the Canadian Health Care system is and how "American Style" health care is the CPC agenda; maybe we could actually investigate a health care system that works.

Here's a question Mysty....if you got a life threatening illness and had the option of standing in line at the Canadian clinic or paying to go to the US (or any one of the "private" clinics that do not exist (shhh...don't tell)in Canada, what would you do? Be honest now.

I also question just who is the "obtuse" one.

wilson said...

Last night on CTV,
a large breastless women opened up her housecoat to show all the world her scared body after a mastectomy.
"Does Lisa Raitt think this is sexy?"

That was the turning point,
and NOT in the Liberal and media favour.
What the Libs/msm did at that moment was make cancer patients 'their'
ride for 'their' own political purpose.

wilson said...

BTW, my sister and best friend, died of cancer at the age of 47, eight years ago.
She did so with dignity.
And I miss her, alot.

What Liberals/Dippers/Bloc and CTV and reporters are doing is the most undignified type of smearing I have ever witnessed.

mystereeoso said...

AbG-Pulease create reasonable arguments:

Re:' "That's not penny candy money. Where are the government's priorities"

And you weren't in line demanding that they provide "stimulus" to "save" the auto sector. Puleeze.'

How is this relevant? But ok - Can labourers who manufacture auto parts not retrofit a couple of reactors?


'"Is there something wrong with the idea of an MRI for anyone who needs it?"

Absolutely not - that would be wonderful - as soon as you and your ilk quit screaming about how "wonderful" the Canadian Health Care system is and how "American Style" health care is the CPC agenda; maybe we could actually investigate a health care system that works.'

Surely a Conservative "investigation on a health care system that works" can't depend on whether or not I and my ilk are screaming or not. The idea that if I would only be quiet, the conserves would solve all my problems to my delightful satisfaction is quite a doozy.

Re:'Here's a question Mysty....if you got a life threatening illness and had the option of standing in line at the Canadian clinic or paying to go to the US (or any one of the "private" clinics that do not exist (shhh...don't tell)in Canada, what would you do? Be honest now.

I also question just who is the "obtuse" one.'

Well, absolutely you are way rounder at the free end than I am so you are the obtuse one. I'm Canadian. I pay taxes and if I get sick I want my taxes to facilitate my treatment here in Canada.

As it stands our HMPMSH government is standing there saying "Oh darn, it's broke maybe someone who needs a junker will buy it."

mystereeoso said...

Right now HMPMSH's people don't even appear very concerned about the isotopes they supply to the rest of the world. Not worried about setting back the practise of nuclear medicine worldwide? What were they giving those isotopes away for chump change?

wilson said...

''..don't even appear very concerned about the isotopes they supply to the rest of the world..''

Seems to me a country of 34million people can only do so much for the 'rest of the world'.

mystereeoso said...

Well wilson, of the isotopes produced at the Chalk River plant, only 10% stay in Canada. So what are you saying? We don't value our customers? We give crappy service? We are poor global citizens? We managed our natural resources so poorly we can't sell enough isotopes to keep our plant running? What?

East of Eden said...

In 1993, I had a manager ask me to make a boring document "sexy" by invigorating the dialogue and doing some formatting to make it read and look "sexy". I know it's a commonly-used terms although I think it's a bit dumb. But, it is in no way a disrespect. Anybody who tries to make the use of the word to be a disrespect in this context is just blowing smoke.

Let's see: "lame" is commonly used and that could be construed as a disrespect of mobility-impaired people. "Gay" is used as a sub for "lame" so that could be hitting two groups in our society at the same time. We used to call great things "bad" or "phat". Get with the programs, all of you scandal seekers.

mystereeoso said...

The 'rest of the world' was doing very nicely by us on account of we HAD something of value for sale. No longer.

mystereeoso said...

East, we talked about sexy already and we moved onto the issue of political purpose. What political purpose does it serve to have a defunct, leaking reactor and zero supply of medical isotopes?

harebell said...

ABG and others
"Re: As for the aid being hired, she was already in the department. Minister Raitt, inherited her."

True but didn't the minister promote her? Must have been viewed as competent in some ones mind.

mystereeoso said...

East, are you getting the picture? We can't trade isotopes and we can't use them because the conserves prefer to see a broken reactor rather than an alternative means of producing them.

mystereeoso said...

As mentioned in the link above, experts think we have sufficient infrastructure to adapt to the cause of isotope production but they note (evidenced by the firing of Linda Keen) the government isn't onside. What is the political purpose of that?

mystereeoso said...

Oh my, I see Helene Gorgeous has just lost staff to Iggy's team. Doo. Doo. Doo. Another one bites the dust.

Southern Quebec said...

E of E: Still remembers what happened in 1993. Time to move on E...


Has anyone else figured out that this is about PMS Harper selling off AECL? He really doesn't care about Canadians...

Alberta Girl said...

"Can labourers who manufacture auto parts not retrofit a couple of reactors?"

Yes they can - and this CPC government has tried to get retraining in for just that purpose - however all Iggy and Jack and Gill cry about is more EI for them - why would they want them to retrain when they can be used for political purposes.

And Hare Bell - where is the link that shows that Lisa Raitt "promoted" Jasmine.

mystereeoso said...

They're not retraining because the government isn't even entertaining the option of putting them to work on a reactor retro fit. Instead, they want to sell AECL. Hello? ABG?

Please stop with the incessant calls for the provision of links. You don't read the ones people give you anyway and you sound like a robot.

Southern Quebec said...

She's not a robot, Mysty. She's a CONSERVATIVE! She is just following Dear Leader's antics. Never answer a question and always change the topic.

Oh Noes! We made the baby Lisa cry!

(When all else fails, bring on the tears...sigh.)

Alberta Girl said...

Where do you get the idea they want to sell it, mysty "

http://money.aol.ca/article/harper-government-to-sell-aecl-reactor-business/633982/

"Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt said Thursday that AECL is being put on the block in response to a National Bank report commissioned to examine whether all or part of the Crown company should be privatized.

A summary of the bank's report, prepared by the Natural Resources Department, says AECL's reactor business should be spun off from its research division.

"The review's analysis revealed a corporation trying to manage two divisions with very different objectives and subsequently different measures of success and different needs," the summary says.

"One division is profit-oriented. To succeed it requires a market savvy management approach and access to risk capital.

"The business of the other is research and technology development and while it has commercial opportunities, these have not been a primary motivator for its work."

The department's summary says while National Bank found "significant private sector interest" in AECL's reactor business, few companies wanted to buy the aging Chalk River facility, though there were firms interested in running it.

The government accepted the recommendations.

We are now moving forward with restructuring the corporation," Raitt said.

Investment bank N.M. Rothschild & Sons has been hired to come up with a restructuring plan and give financial advice. Ottawa has also brought on David Leith, the former deputy chairman of CIBC World Markets, as an adviser.

"We anticipate that the bulk of the work will be taken over the summer for Rothschild and for Mr. Leith, and that we'll be having reports coming in to us some time in the fall," Raitt said.

Sounds like they will be looking to restructure to me?

mystereeoso said...

From your link:

" The Harper government plans to put Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.'s nuclear reactor business up for sale... part of a major restructuring that will also mean private-sector management for AECL's Chalk River research facility, which makes the medical isotopes used in diagnostic scans."

mystereeoso said...

So now to get back to it - what former auto workers are being retrained at this moment via stimulus monies to go work at the for sale reactor?

mystereeoso said...

What's this we have now - an apology from Minister Raitt and a poll showing the Libs are ahead of the Conserves? Better late than never.Hahahahahaha!

Southern Quebec said...

This letter to the editor, sort of sums up the CPofC:

"Conservative transport minister John Baird just told the City of Toronto to "f--- off" regarding its $1.6 billion request for economic stimulus cash.

Natural resources minister Lisa Raitt said "roll the dice" on cancer and nuclear medicine.

Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz laughed at listeriosis deaths.

Canada would be run better by a government that did not regard we citizens with such capricious contempt"

AMEN.
Can we get an Amen?

mystereeoso said...

And Oh my goodness what is THIS:

How very interesting. This tape of MacDonnell's is just chock full of booty isn't it!!!

mystereeoso said...

I'm pretty curious not only about what else is on the tape - I'm curious, if you know Victoria, what the heck were they doing in the limo for five hours - driving around the Empress? I wonder if they stopped at Paul's Motor Inn for Wednesday night Karaoke?

mystereeoso said...

Or maybe they stopped at the yacht club for one of those delicious caesars they have with the spicy green been garnish. Or maybe they toured Esquimalt.

mystereeoso said...

green bean, I mean.

What the H, does anybody picture them having driven to Port Renfrew and back?

mystereeoso said...

That is a stunning poll result BTW - If they didn't stop at Paul's Motor Inn they're sorry about it now, I bet you anything.

maryT said...

Over their years of government the liberals, including Ralphy, poured millions into Chalk River, even after being told the reactors would never work. The liberals should have done something then, built new, closed it down or whatever. Blame the liberals for another fiasco PMSH is supposed to fix. Maybe that is why Iggy wont topple the govt. Lots of thing still to be fixed.

maryT said...

Next time Belinda is on tv, will we all think of her scarred body.
Who was that idiot that did that. She never got sympathy from me.

hunter said...

Yikes Mysty, get a life! Your talking to yourself here.

Liberals milking a tape for every drop it's worth. Lisa Raitt's apology was very well done and any lefty that continues to disparage her is an idiot. Speaking of idiots...

Raphie needs to apologize. Today in question period he called her a liar. This was pointed out in a point of order as unparliamentary behaviour, but he refused to do it. Makes Ralphie look like a really small man.

mystereeoso said...

Well she refused to apologize till she saw the polls, I guess. Then for sure PMSH twisted her arm 'cause he could tell things were going badly. And anyway it'll take at least a week for whatever is on the rest of that tape to come out.

mystereeoso said...

At least a week - say, that'll take us pretty close to the 19th of June won't it? Non confidence day.

mystereeoso said...

Yeah, if she didn't stop at Paul's Motor Inn and June 19th turns out to be NON CONFIDENCE DAY Lisa Raitt will probl'y be sorry.

To the Real Neo Conservative, don't worry, we knew he was a fake and just ignored the slimeball. You can take Southern Quebec, Mysty, liberal supporter and my other various trolls with you if you want! They add nothing to the debate and like to swarm over here when CC commands them to. Look back a few days and you will see what I mean!

To Alberta Girl, with blogger, you can moderate comments for everybody or nobody. I don't have the time during the day to be bothered deleting all the trolls comments. They do paint a picture of what the typical deranged troll is all about.

"Neo Conservative" who?

mystereeoso said...

Re: "They add nothing to the debate"

Excuse me Huntsy but I beg to differ. There wouldn't be a debate if it weren't for our persistence here. It would just be east of eden and marty nodding in agreement with whatever you say. The presence of trolls is one feature that distinguishes your blog from the rest of the BT pack. Whether it's because you can't be bothered to delete every little thing like at I am Neo C's blog or because you are conducting experiments on the Lefty psyche - I prefer to think you enjoy the fact people with views different from yours are still interested in the things you write on your blog even if we do all privately wonder how much you get paid to write them.

I notice you even got a medical marjuana fan to sign up for your
you tube feed - keep up the good work, sister. It's a boring world when everyone thinks the same.

mystereeoso said...

And BTW - I still think Raitt's "behind my skirt" rebuttal of Ralph was pallid. The innuendo was pallid and the delivery was well, pallid. So that's prob'ly why you didn't see too much of it in the press esp tv. I hate pallid tv. It's not sexy.
