Helena Guergis' Tirade in PEI Now Excusable

I mean seriously. If you were stuck in a hell hole and knew your husband was wining and dining with unsavoury types for an extended period of time because of it, wouldn't you have thrown a tantrum?

Not if you knew he was making enough money to buy yourself an $880K house.

James Bowie said...

PEI is the best place in Canada.

And I think she said "Shithole," not "Hellhole." I think you just can't say "shit" on TV.

Oh yeah, suddenly it's all starting to make sense. But still, I thought if you were a mature woman at the age Guergis is at, you would do a better job of containing your emotions if you found out your husband was wining and dining with hookers.

Oh well, we all react to these things differently.

It is nice to see the priorities of the official opposition.

Helena and tax funded abortions for the Congo.

What happened to the Liberals, why are they afraid of introducing alternative ideas about pensions, EI, free trade in parliament?

CS - trying to change the subject again?

Ain't workin

Unfortunatley, Guergis has major family problems. She probably should have resigned, dealt with her problems and started again.

Changing the channel?

Interesting, asking the host who was running for VP organization in the OLO about the big picture vs the small stuff.

RS your should take up your concerns about his ability to answer a question through a private channel.

I did not visit your site and did not ask for your opinion.

Thanks again for coming out and demostrating you inability to mind your manners.

***Not if you knew he was making enough money to buy yourself an $880K house.

-I think an MP at $175k a year could afford it on her own.

***PEI is the best place in Canada.

- Yes, I remember your favourite Senator is from there.

***What happened to the Liberals, why are they afraid of introducing alternative ideas about pensions, EI, free trade in parliament?

- the same thing that happened to an elected Senate, banning the gun registry and a more open and accountable government.

***Interesting, asking the host who was running for VP organization in the OLO about the big picture vs the small stuff.

-Listen CS you BSer, it was VP-Org LPCO. Learn your letters. And, what the fuck does that have to do with Conservatives connections to criminal elements??????????? And, I'll answer your questions once you decide to have the guts to identify yourself. Some of us have the courage of our own convictions to stand on their own record. Right, James Bowie?

James Curran,

I am not sure why the hostility regarding my post.

Your request for my real name will be denied.

A post from Green Peace a couple days ago illustrates the danger posed by some in the left.

I have a family and children that I wish to keep safe.

I guess the election did not work out in your favour. Best of luck next year.

James Curran said...

To your point:

"RS your should take up your concerns about his ability to answer a question through a private channel."

I, unlike yourself, put myself out there. So, no need to answer questions from nobodys like yourself. And, what the hell is your question anyway?

P.S. If you fear for your family, then get the hell off the internet and quit being an ass.

RuralSandi said...

CS, I have news flash for you. This is James Curran's blog. It's his choice what he wants to write about. You have no say in the matter.

In fact, you are rambling and incoherent.

You don't like his blog or his views, don't read them.

Seems to me that Harper's fear card is really sinking in with you - how sad.

R. G. Harvie said...

I guess, like so much of what's being coming out of the LPC these days, it seems like, well, a little two-card monte. In the absense of "a plan", there is an effort to dredge up the abortion debate, and to make much ado about very little regarding Guergis.

So, someone got stuck in an airport and called it a shit hole.


So her stupid husband is a drunk, and maybe a drug user to boot who associates with sleazbags.

I suppose we could ask about Erik Bornman, close pal of Paul Martin and other federal Liberal insiders connected to the BC Legislature raids relating to alleged fraud and misuse of influence, with connections to drug dealers and other "unsavory types".

Or, we could look at Raymond Garneau who operated the loan syndicate used by Paul Martin to acquire Canadian Steamship line, and who, no coincidence I'm sure,was appointed by Paul Martin in his capacity as Finance Minister, to be a Director of the Bank of Canada

Who were Raymond Garneau's friends?

Well, Garneau was the CEO of the Montreal City and District Savings bank, which was the bank used by the Caruana/Cuntrera crime family for which Alfonso Gagliano worked as an accountant. The bank in question was apparently used for the laundering of $21 million by said crime family, a fact established by RCMP Sgt. Mark Bourque.

Oh yeah, speaking of Liberal Ministers, we all remember Alfonso Gagliano. From Wikipedia:

On November 17, 2004, an article in the New York Daily News alleged that Gagliano was associated with the Bonanno organized crime family. In the article, former capo Frank Lino, now an informer for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, is quoted as saying Gagliano was introduced to him during a meeting with other mob members in Montreal. Gagliano has strongly denied the allegations. It is not the first time Gagliano's name has been linked to organized crime. In 1994, La Presse reported that Gagliano was the bookkeeper for Agostino Cuntrera, cousin of cocaine baron Alfonso Caruana, who was involved in a gangland slaying of Paul Violi in Montreal in 1978. Cuntrera was subsequently convicted of murder. Gagliano denies any links to the Mafia. Gagliano now resides with his family on a vineyard in Dunham, Quebec and winters in Florida since 2006, and no further charges have been brought against him.


Glass houses.


Well, you know the rest..


By the way.

The Canadian economy is kicking ass on everyone else in the G7.

In case such trivial issues are of any interest :)

James Curran said...

Yes. Thanks, once again Rob for proving my point. When Conservatives get uppity they just drudge up the shit you just brought up....over and over and over and over again. But Helena? Well, we just have to leave it alone. Puhlease.

How very self-serving Rob. Maybe i should start rambling on about Elmer McKay and Brian Muldoon and envelopes of cash and shit like that again.

And, I'm sorry Rob, but what "sweeping" policy has this Conservative government offered up recently that serves any purpose to Canadians? Talk about vacuous!

James Curran said...

Oh, and let's not forget, poor Helena is still up in front of the ethics committee shortly along with her buddy MP Rick Dykstra.

R. G. Harvie said...


Don't get me wrong.

If she has some skeletons in her closet - something beyond innuendo, so be it.

I have no more use for a dirty Conservative than for a dirty Liberal.

But this hoo-haw about the airport is pretty lame.

And as for the ethics committe complaint - again, it smacks of desperation.

She borrowed money to buy a house.

The suggestion, at it's worst, is she received a favorable mortgage from the bank her husband used to work at.

I've done about a thousand mortgage transactions and have seen scores of beneficial financing arrangements for current and past employees of banks.

This so-called issue pales in comparison to the director of the Bank of Canada being connected to the Cuntreras.


By the way.

From the CMHC wesbite

Buying a Home

For over 60 years, CMHC has helped millions of Canadians meet their housing needs. CMHC provides mortgage loan insurance that enables you to buy a home sooner with little or no money down.

God help Michael Ignatieff should this turn into yet another "abortion vote" scenario, when the gun he shoots ends up beign pointed at his own head.

R. G. Harvie said...

And as for "sweeping policy".. sometimes, the best thing to do, is very little.

Not imposing national daycare on the country to take children from their parents at great taxpayer expense.

Not creating a gun registry that every criminologist in Canada says does nothing to make us safer.

Not spending taxpayer's money to assure that we can provide safe, free abortions to developing nations.

"Conservative", at least in theory, means supporting a governemnt to do "LESS".

James Curran said...

They're very good at doing less Rob. But have a look at I wonder if that Con logo on the address line is legal.

Not imposing a carbon tax.
Because, like, physics is hard.
