Love the Youth for Volpe.

Now he says that 5 of the donations from underaged children will be returned. Of course we can belive what he says.

Those little Apotex kids sure can afford to do without daycare funding, I wish I had that kind of money to donate.

Posted by: Fergy at June 1, 2006 2:29 PM

volpe & co. "nothing was wrong all in compliance"
Where have we heard that before, they just don't get it!! i better be carefull i don't want a letter from his lawyer.
youth for volpe, bang right on a real good laugh

Posted by: bryanr at June 1, 2006 2:37 PM


Perhaps a contest should be started to see who can create the most original excuse for Volpe's actions?

Just saying, "we broke no law" really doesn't do it "justice".
Joe needs something that really evokes sympathy in a bleeding-heart liberal sort of way.

Posted by: gimbol at June 1, 2006 2:42 PM

I wasn't impressed when Joe decided to run, too much "old blood" ties with the Liberals. I hope that this seals the deal on his non election as the leader of the Lier's! Using children, that is the bottom of the sewage pit!

A new book on the late prime minister's early years casts a deep shadow over Canadians' popular image of the liberal, enlightened statesman, Robert Sibley writes.

Here's hoping that Joe wins the Leadership race because he truly represent the Liberal Party traditions.

Children (including two 11-year olds) decide to spend $5,400 of their "own" money to donate to him? That's hilarious as well as preposterous!

The right thing to do is to return the money to Apotex. Oops, I mean the fathers. Oops again, I mean the children of course!

Oh, and the slander threats? That's also hilarious! Thanks for brightening up my day Joe!

Caution: Liberal policies are not for everyone. Side effects may include: shrinking wallet, progressive loss of freedom, inability to account for large sums of money, sudden transfers of brown envelopes full of cash, and a complete lack of coordination between words and actions. In some cases a severe lack of integrity is observed. If left untreated, Liberal policies can lead to child indoctrination and exploitation. If you feel you may be about to vote Liberal, consult your health-care provider, if you can still find one after 13 years of Liberal mis-rule.

Posted by: Clive at June 1, 2006 3:35 PM

Pardon my french, but what the heck? Is Apotech testing out some sort of new drug on Volpe and the Liberals? Or were they 'slipping one in' on us all; and we just woke up and realized what's happening? This is all so bizarre. Truth IS stranger than fiction.

Posted by: Cheri at June 1, 2006 3:44 PM

If I'm one of those kids I make sure Volpe gives the money back to ME.

Not to my Dad, but ME.

Either that or I make a false travel expense to the Senate; it's all good.

Sheila Copps trashes Joe (da fox) Volpe and the party.

'New' party, old tricks
....It is bad enough that Liberal leadership candidate Volpe has skirted around the election financing law through targeted fundraising of the principals in one particular company.

It is worse that he justifies the 20 "individual" donations to his campaign from company executives, former executives, their spouses and teenage children, as each complying with the maximum allowable donation of $5,400 per person.

While that is true, taken together all these donations are connected to people associated with one firm -- Apotex.

Their total contribution of $108,000 to Volpe's campaign amounts to 70% of all funds he raised as of earlier this month, according to media reports. If accurate, that total is 2000% higher than the individual limit of $5,400 prescribed by law.

Volpe spokesman Corey Hobbs said all these donations are in full compliance with the law and Liberal party guidelines.

But to see interim Liberal Leader Bill Graham and party spokesperson Steve McKinnon supporting Volpe should raise more than one Liberal eyebrow.

McKinnon is quoted as saying the party has procedures to "catch and correct any provisions of the act that appear to have been contravened, and we don't see any in this case." ....
..........."Believe me, Volpe is no political novice. Setting aside his obvious lack of judgment in hitching his financial wagon so strongly to one federally-regulated company, Volpe sees no problem in accepting thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from even the teenage children of company officials.
But surely we should expect more from Liberal officials.
It is their job to ensure that leadership activities pass the smell test and guarantee a level playing field.
Most Liberals were disgusted with the backroom tactics of the last few years and they see the leadership race as a chance to start afresh. One Saskatchewan Liberal told me this week his vote would go to the candidate who would "clean house." .......

Posted by: Rich at June 1, 2006 3:56 PM

The liberals care for children: The 3rd world uses children in factories, the taliban and other terrorists strap bombs on kids and sends them shopping, liberals use kids to hide donations. At least they aren't using them for forced labor or killing them (they use abortion). When they wake up to the fact they have deterred over 200,000 from being born and thus lost them as donors and voters they will impose a law re abortion. Can't change what doesn't exist. Why is there no outrage against the company that started all this. What did they expect to get, and have they donated to any other candidates. Might be why so many of them are quiet about this. Note to Rev Canada-audit this firm.

Cripes,if it weren't all so bizarrely funny it would be scary.As I said earlier on another thread,the LPC is simply unethical and has ABSOLUTELY NO shame in attempting to bullsh*t Canadians when they consider it expedient.They seem incapable of clear,honest answers,let alone apologees.

Now,if I may,I would like to address you lefties out there.
If you feel compelled to support and promote leftist ideals,go for it,do your best and finally,have fun!But PLEASE back the NDP or find another new,untainted party,DO NOT defend this dispicable party which has been,and continues to be unwavering in it's inherent contempt and hatred for anyone who dare question it's actions!Yes,that is STILL despite the severity of MANY of their corrupt actions brought to light SO FAR!You see,this is NO longer a question of right/left,it is purely a matter of ethics and character.I ask you,just how low does the LPC have to go before YOU say ENOUGH(surely you actually have a limit)!
I can't understand how ANY self-respecting leftie could defend this party's behavior and in doing so,condone it!
Anyways,it has become abundantly clear to me that anyone who would STILL defend this party is indeed also completely DEVOID of either ethics or character themselves.For it is these traits that allow us the grace to openly admit and face the consequences of our wrongdoing!

What a sorry lesson in unaccountability to be teaching our youth...

Right. Youth for volpe, which is a brilliant spoof, seems down. My guess - is a lawyer's call to the blog owner. Remember, in Canada, we aren't allowed to mock or chastise or dissent. Volpe is backtracking rapidly.

But, what a stupid excuse, that 'it's not illegal for children to donate'. Look, we don't have laws to cover every unethical and stupid action, but, they still remain unethical and stupid.

Posted by: ET at June 1, 2006 4:28 PM

The next natural step for him and the rest of his ilk (on their campaign contributions list) is to start patrolling grave yards if they aren't already and to begin pulling the names off Grave Stones... That falls within the bounds of what these blood suckers are capable of...

Why was this not made available to the Canadian people via MSM? In these papers the Canadian Intellegence Services listed the egregious rodent's activites from youth - like his involvement with brownshirts, Castro, Mau, Communists in every human hating state in the world, .....Now how can anyone question who the MSM work for?

Wow, I took a look at elections canada's financing page. Volpe associates with some real scum. His biggest donor(s) [Husband and wife] in the '04 election gave him $9000 and were in charge of some weird coupon scam called the 'SumIt Club'.

While I was on that site I found another Liberal donor - maybe you've heard of her - Adrienne Clarkson. She gave $250 to Bill Graham in the last election.

Those Liberals - they'll take money from anybody.

Posted by: Robert at June 1, 2006 6:05 PM

Don Newman had Joe Volpe on Newsworld Politics program and gave him about 5 minutes to answer Newman's softball questions ... and Volpe went on and on about how transparent he was .... trying to take credit for returning the money that was being laundered through infants ... but he will keep mom's and dad's money because that's "legal" ...and all the rest of the money donated by Apotex Pharmaceutical exectives and their wives because it's "legal" too ... and it's only coincidental that it all came from one company that depends or received favourable govt decisions for their industry.

Also on CTV Duffy Live .... the Duff said that there is a news story emerging from some Toronto Italian organization that claimed that if it were a WASP Liberal candidate, this would not have been exposed as it was for Italian paisan Volpe ... and that it's only somebody's vendetta against all Italians .... go figure ... Italians living in Canada are still rallying to one of their own ... just like any good mafia familia would .... !!!

Posted by: maz2 at June 1, 2006 6:49 PM

What I find most revealing is not Volpe's actions, but the defence of them by the Libranos. "He didn't break any laws, therefore he did nothing wrong." -- as though legality equals morality and vice versa. It's a profoundly chilling thought that there are so many (and only recently out of power) powerful, influential people who cannot make the distinction. Presumably, if a law were passed condemning Jews to extermination, the Libranos would then see exterminating Jews as "not wrong" because it would be "legal". I contrast this to the reaction by Conservatives including many on various blogs to David Emerson's appointment to cabinet -- "legal" yes, but still "wrong". It illustrates the utter absence of a moral compass or at best its utter superficiality amongst Liberals. They truly are fertile soil for Fascism.

Posted by: DrD at June 1, 2006 7:08 PM

Hey, how about a new name for Joe Volpe?

Joe Volpenocchio?

He claims that he found out ONLY yesterday that some of his campaign funds had been donated by kids. Wow! The MSM and everyone else in Canada knew about it on Monday or Tuesday, at the latest, and he's just finding out?

Yeah, sure, Joe. It really gives me confidcence to think that you might be Canada's PM someday. You're really on top of things.

Sorry folks. Same old, same old!
This latest testament to scullduggery takes the word "sleeze" to a whole new level. What the _ _LL are they thinking! Doesn't Joe Volpe's campaign manager see the bad optics in this. What about the Apotec people.What have they been smoking and who with? Where did this $100,000.00 come from. Is there a forensic auditor in the house? The missing taxpayer meillions have to be somewhere. Are we going to $ee them $urface in this way in many campaign$ to come! This just doesn't smell right!
I hope the returned money goes straight to childrens charities. Perhaps the hospital for sick children since it is coming from a liberal friendly Pharmaceudicals Corporation. We all know how passionate the Liberals are to solve all the health care problems in this country. Take the $5400.00 per child and do something good with it!

Hans sez: "Young Trudeau: Fascist, anti-Semite, and separatist"

Dunno what book you're reading from partner but
PET was an avowed Marxist most of his life which resulted in him being blacklisted by the US and refused entry into that anti-communist nation.

His formative years were spent pondering the deranged scribbling of obscure French paleo-socialistsl

As PM he was the avowed enemy of separatists as he believed it was Quebe's destiny to dominate Canada's federal politics....but he was bigoted towards anglo establishment all his was Chretien.

If PET was antisemitic you'd never know it because PET surrounded himself with Jewish financial benefactors to drive his political career....Paul Desmarais, the Montreal Goldenberg law mafia, the Bronfmans, Morgenthaler etc., etc.....seems Jewish money and poliytical pull is ok with PET....even if your utopian goal is to substitute a state's political dogma for the influence of the church on the citizenry of Trudeaupia.

I do recall though, that Izzy Asper went after Trudeau for his tax and spend ways but lined up behind him at election time.

WLM Redux: I guess you missed that report via Neale on an upcoming authorized biography on our dear friend and mentor P.E.T., may the peace of Allah be upon him (relax; I'm just fooling around here!)...

PET actually authorized a couple of his loyal Librano friends to do a bio on the early years of himself, prior to 1944. He provided them with documents he saved from the period, writings by himself providing a glimpse into what kinds of thoughts and beliefs actually used to go on in his head. Not only did he admire Castro while PM, but as a youth, he admired the likes of Hitler, Mussolini et al and was also a Quebec separatist...

Makes me wonder if the socialist excesses he commited while in power were actually an overcorrection out of sheer guilt weighing on his conscience?

Fascinating, to say the least...

Me No Dhimmi, I simply meant that PET may have realized the stupidity of supporting the likes of Hitler and Mussolini.

Perhaps he was so ashamed of his past that he actually went too far in some things (being extra nice to some selected groups of folks at the expense of others, violating the concept of justness) to try to prove he wasn't some evil bastard, just to himself.

Well, one has to think about it... maybe he thought he was doing the opposite of that which he supported in his youth and went as far as he could get away with...

But he may have been wrong sometimes. It's up to the beholder to decide. Food for thought, I mean.

Just thinking out loud, you know?

The man was imperfect; despite the idolization, he may have mistakenly done at least as much harm as good, if not more. Perhaps he didn't think all that clearly.

He was no Stephen Harper. Harper knows himself and has no need to compensate for anything. He's much more focussed on what needs to be done than was PET, in my opinion.

I was only asking for a clarification of your point which I have difficulty following. In fact, I believe he made Canada as communistic as he could within the political infrastructure we have. In addition to the Castro pallbearer episode, you probably know he took his sons to Siberia to show them the "way of the future". I consider ALL his policies disasters. ALL. Official bilingualism (effectively francophone control of the federal bureaucracy), multiculturalism, wage and price controls, the NEP. His alleged magnum opus the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in silent on the very wellspring of all rights: property rights.

Posted by: Me No Dhimmi at June 2, 2006 10:41 PM

Canadian Sentinel and Me no Dhimmi; Trudeau was a Totalitarian Elitist - he held anyone who was not a rich, psydo intellectual, carnature of himself and is ilk ; to be beneath contempt. He disliked the 'teeming masses' (us) and was very impatient to put us all in harness - working for the state and the state's rulers (him and his rat pack) twenty four hour a day. He could not tolerate, in his mind, the 'pathetic strivings' of the average man/woman to own their own land, raise a family, and live as a free individual; with access to good schools, automobiles, travel etc.
He (trudeau) tried his best to keep his natural aversion to people under control - until, ultimatly, he could have complete power over the lives of all the citizens - via Economic santions against those who spoke and acted against him and his fellow elitists (mo Strong Demerais, Castro, Mao Tse Tung, Stalin, Hitler, Rosenburgs...).
The Cretian was 'trudeau's creature' he was groomed for the job by Trudeau, himself.
It made no difference to Trudeau if it was red and white Marxism or black and red Facism; as long as the 'filthy masses' were not running the show. He showed the people in Salmon Arm his true colors when he dropped in to wave from the train and was greeted by a group of loud, vocal, angry farmers instead of groveling kow towers grinning in wonderment and adoration for such a 'clever, 'sexy' 'new', modern, defiant Dear Leader. He gave us the finger and ordered the train not to stop. He showed us who was boss!! I had gone to the station to see the Centenial Train - not turdo- and I was furious.
We are very lucky Cretian was too much of a born thug to be as slimy as Trudeau. If paule and the cretian had not been IQ challanged, we would not be able to vote for a Man like Stephen Harper, we would be voting for the one name on a one name ballot. We would all be living in bee hive cells aka 'Habitates for Humanity' and the whole country outside cities would be a spanky clean park for the elitists to enjoy without ever encountering a 'filthy human'.
The anti smoking legislation was/is one of the major steps to FORCING people to keep their 'natural filth' under control. Drinking beer is next...Clean out those cesspools where people talk and laugh and insult the 'land' and the elitists with our 'filth'. Stalin forbade smoking, Stalin encouraged smoking. Hitler wanted control, Stalin had control and he liked to deprive prisoners of the only freedom 'good citizens' had - smoking. It is control these freaks want and the means they use to get it is not important - as long as they get what they lust for - Complete control.
It is the duty of all free people to keep freaks like them out of government, schools, etc. Fight like a banashie when someone says 'it is for your own good that the AUTORITIES have made this or that 'new' control rule. Throw the freaks into hissy fits by refusing to obay - in mass.
The people who voted in a rational, truly 'for the people' un-nanny government in Canada's last election gave the elitists a good slap in the face; well deserved and 'for their own good'. Don't ever let them 'rule' again.

Posted by: Jema54 at June 3, 2006 4:53 AM

Jema54: I think you've pretty much got PET's number. What amazes me is how many Canadians were completely duped for so long. Here's a rich guy robbing us "teaming masses" blind, robbing those of us with British ancestors of our heritage, making sure that Francophonie would control the federal bureaucracy (I know: I lived and worked in Ottawa for the federal government in the '70s and took nine months of French language training, which I never used once back on the job), talking about keeping the government out of the bedrooms of the nation as he climbed in every bedroom window, etc., etc.

He was like a cat thief, stealthily robbing us of our jewels, but with silk gloves on and a "charming" (sic) smile, which just looked simpering to me. How anyone could have found him attractive is totally beyond me, but Canada was awash in Trudeaumania for years. How could we have been fooled for so long?

The PC thing was getting big back in the '70s, and I remember people trying to bully me into their point of view about him back then. After awhile, I just kept my opinions to myself, because you'd be the only one in a room of 25 who couldn't stand him and you'd become an object of derision if you voiced your distrust and dislike of him. I'm talking federal bureaucracy Ottawa, university intellectuals, the arts/National Arts Centre crowd, hippies, folkies, and back-to-the-landers. Another life ago...

He treated his wife badly, he was an AC/DC philanderer (and quite probably drove Margaret crazier than she already was), he was a dilettante, he was a total bull_______, but most Canadians were duped. He ruined our country with the so-called Charter of Rights and Freedoms, because it left out the idea of personal responsibility, and look where that's got us: There is a sizeable segment of the population, a critical mass, which is content to be cared for from cradle to grave by the Nanny State, and feel entitled to every benefit going without having to contribute one nano-second of elbow grease to get them. I agree that Cretin is a complete thug and, like Martin, was Trudeau's puppet. The long reach of Trudeau, even from the grave. (I'm crossing myself.)

That so many turned out to honour him as the train with his coffin passed by almost made me despair. Though I could feel human sympathy for his children and his two widows (one he never marrried but had a child with: Did I mention what a great role model he was for our young people?) I felt only a withering revulsion for the man the whole nation was mourning. And I realized just how far we have to go to climb out of the big black hole bequeathed to Canadians by Trudeau and "his bagmen at an unholy wake" (as my dad once described the Librano$). The climb out has begun with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his CPC government, but it's a steep pitch and there are many at the rim who will try to push us back in.

We're in pretty dire straits. The first step on the road to recovery is to at least acknowledge how deep the rot goes and how sick our nation is: politically, physically, spiritually, intellectually. We're fortunate to now have a leader who's in touch with the reality of Canada's winter of discontent (nod to John Steinbeck).

The Prague Spring? The Canada Spring? Let's hope and pray that it happens.

Hansard excerpts- Question Period - June 2,2006

Hon. Sue Barnes (London West, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, the government does not take accountability as seriously as its press releases indicate. It is the responsibility of the Attorney General to assure the House that all government legislation passes a constitutionality test. Everyone knows this except, apparently, the Minister of Justice.

The Law Clerk of the House of Commons says that certain sections of Bill C-2 are unconstitutional. Has the minister certified the constitutionality of each piece of legislation that he has put before the House?

Mr. Jason Kenney (Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, CPC): Mr. Speaker, the answer is yes.

However, speaking of Bill C-2, it deals with the reform of party financing legislation. Therefore, will the member propose an amendment to ban contributions to parties from children? Her party found an innovation in party financing, raising $11,000 from twin 11-year-olds. That is the new Liberal Party financing strategy. ...

(BTW, is there a whiff of something pornographic at "the Liberal leadership hopeful" Volpe kid's contribution spoof site? There is something, IMO).

The Elites Who Enslaved Canada.

Some names:

Keith Spicer of the Bi/Bi Commission, Bilingualism/Bicultural Commission, later morphing into Multiculturalism, (isms? another story) now living in France, mais oui;

Marc Lalonde, he of the heinous National Energy policy (NEP), the Liberal pol whose words were: "the private sector and the public sector", a conflation, (con) which meant the socialist state and the individual were one/the same;

Richard Gwyn, Trudeau's resident hack, oenophile, and haliographer ("The Northern Magus");

Bernard Ostry, (Wadena, Sask.) and his "spouse", the socialist gnomes who built the House of Multiculturalism for Trudeau; the Ostrys, who lived in luxury, above hoi polloi in their soviet-style dachas; who looted the Treasury of Canada for their own sybarite/socialist/communist ends;

Jeancula Chretien; Red Tory Bill Davis; the Gotliebs; Paul Hellyer, Order of the UFO;

and on and on....

Read/ or not read TO Star's obit for Ostry here:

Thanks, maz2 for naming names; keep them coming, as I'm sure there are a whole lot more.

Boy what dupes we Canadians have been. What's our problem? Too big a country; population too spread out; too little thinking, and too much brainwashing; too much trust in government; too much left-lib-fem-gay slant to the MSM???

Whatever it is, I've been swimming upstream and alone for a long, long time. It's nice to finally find a few other fish not Hell-bent for leather to swim into the great big wishy-washy ocean to be lost forever...

And on and on it goes: In the name of "Employment Equity" (sic), the Toronto District School Board's (TDSB) just asked its employees to complete a most intrusive census. (More below)

Before PET's Charter of Rights (sic) and Freedoms (sic), Canadians had more rights and more freedoms: Since 1982, the Charter (of Fights and Fiefdoms) has been used, to control Canadians, first of all, by grouping us according to "victim" status. Has anyone noticed that Canadians who play the victim card seem to have more rights than the rest of us? The Charter has also been extensively used by the Machiavellian Human Rights (sic) Commissions and Canadian Courts to extend victims' rights at the expense of those of the rest of us.

New Kid's altogether right about the isolation of those of us who've questioned this totalitarian bent of Canada's ruling elites. The blogosphere's a godsend. Let's hope that it and our new government will be successful in waking Canadians up.

Back to the TDSB Workforce Census, just one of Trudeau's many tentacles reaching far into the future with long term, deleterious effects: All kinds of bells going off here. Of course, the census won't be used to enforce quotas: tell me another. The questions: "Do you identify yourself as: 1. Male? Female? 2. an Aboriginal person? 3. a visible minority? 4. With which one of the following groups do you identify yourself? [16 categories, including "Other" were given: none included the words French or British. I guess "White- Canadian" would include both.] 5. Do you identify yourself as a person with a disability? Yes/No. If Yes, please identify: [6 categories were provided, including "Other".] 6. Do you identify yourself as: Bisexual? Gay? Heterosexual? Lesbian? Transgender? Transsexual? Two-Spirited {Aboriginal term]?"

Employees were asked to provide their employee number. Completing the census was voluntary and I know a number of teachers who left it blank, except for their employee number. A little scary? Big Brother--more like Sister in public education--watching?

The numbers will most definitely be used to further manipulate the composition of the workforce and curriculum content and resources. E.g., Although a traditionalist would never be allowed into a school to talk about the stability of heterosexual marriage for all concerned, homosexual propagandists are regularly welcomed into schools to present their lifestyles as normal and their victimhood as needing state intervention both on their behalf and against "bigots". Of course, in "Big Sister Land" this is considered "equity".

Does anyone think that the data will be used to balance the numbers of males vs females teaching in the Elemenatry panel? (Far fewer than 50% of elementary school teachers are male: Most self-respecting men recoil at the thought of working for a feminist cabal.) Although the data will most certainly be used to hire more minorities, you can bet there won't be a freeze on hiring women until the numbers are even. As always, "equity" is lopsided and whatever the elites decide it's going to be.

Somewhere, surveying the present-day, state-controlled Canada he masterminded, PET's still smirking.

P.S. The TDSB has extended an invitation: "Please visit the Employment Equity website at http://tdsbweb/census ".

I tried and it didn't work. Maybe someone else will have better luck.
