Montreal Simon: Ezra Levant and the Con Bigot Show

It's hard to believe, it couldn't be more ugly, or less Canadian.But just two weeks after a white supremacist killed six Muslims in a Quebec City mosque, and wounded eight others.A group of Con leadership candidates attended a foul rally in Toronto last night to denounce a government motion aimed at doing more to fight Islamophobia.Read ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Leadership Circus and the Two Trumpanzees

As you know the Con leadership circus has not one but two second third-rate Donald Trump impersonators.But I'm sorry to report that after this week's ghastly show, both Kevin O'Leary and Kellie Leitch have been demoted.And will now march in with the clowns.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Sad State of the Con Leadership Race

It's still his party. He created it in his own image. Those who survived the Great Humiliation are still trying to keep his monstrous legacy alive. But Stephen Harper these days is a shrunken version of the monstrous leader he once was, and has said nothing about Con leadership race, even as it descends into farce.Until ...

Montreal Simon: Why I Have Decided To Support Kevin O’Leary

Well now it's official. Kevin O'Leary has finally announced that he does indeed want to be the leader, or the new King of the Harper Party.He claims ordinary rubes Canadians are excited and grateful that he's going to save them from the Liberals.  And he wants Justin Trudeau to know that he is going to be his ...

Montreal Simon: The Farcical Con Debate and the Coming of Kevin O’Leary

The headline in today's Journal de Montréal just about says it all. Yesterday's Con leadership debate was a "hard evening for the French language."So badly did some Con candidates mangle their French, that even the translators couldn't understand them.And no serious person could call it anything but a farce.But at least the gloves finally came off.Read more ...

Montreal Simon: The Continuing Adventures of the Con Clown Kellie Trump

As we all know too well, and too painfully, the Con clown Kellie Leitch has been making an absolute fool of herself for what sometimes seems like forever.With the worst Donald Trump impersonator third-rate drag show act Canada, and possibly the world, has ever seen.Where Kellie Trump claims that only she can save our Canadian values, ...

Montreal Simon: Michael Harris on Why Kellie Leitch Should Fire Nick Kouvalis

As you know, I believe that Kellie Leitch's campaign manager Nick Kouvalis has made a big mistake by leading the hapless Leitch down the road to Trumpland.And has let his own passion for Donald Trump cloud his judgement, to the point where he is now even spreading fake news.So I'm glad to see that Michael Harris also ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Leadership Race: Now It’s Even More of a Porky Show

As we all know the Con leadership race badly needs any publicity it can get. Because not only has it been a porky show, it's also been incredibly boring.And if pigs could fly there would be pork in the trees.But now at last that ghastly show could become the mud wrestling match, I've been hoping ...

Montreal Simon: Kellie Leitch and the Trump Whisperer

Kellie Leitch's third rate Trump impersonator act has always been a freak show. But now it's getting even more bizarre.Now she's not just dancing with the devil, like she once danced with Chris Alexander at the Cultural Barbarism Ball.Now she's repeating things Trump says, word for word, like she's a puppet and he's her ventriloquist. ...

Montreal Simon: Steve Blaney and the Con Apocalypse (Continued)

Although it wasn't a very big story, and most Canadians didn't pay it much attention, the Con leadership race was one of the recurring horror stories of 2016.A real zombie apocalypse and a virtual cesspool of bigotry. With Kellie Leitch going after immigrants, Brad Trost going after LGBT Canadians, and Rona Ambrose just standing there looking stupid.So who ...

Montreal Simon: How The Media Made Kellie Leitch Our Trump Impersonator

I must admit I still find it hard to believe that an educated person like Kellie Leitch is doing what she is doing.Trying to whip up xenophobia for crass political purposes. And sounding more extreme   with every passing day… Or more insane. For what else can you call a member of the elites inciting her ...

Montreal Simon: Kevin O’Leary Prepares To Join the Con Leadership Race

Ever since Kevin O'Leary's infamous "Summit Meeting" with Tony Clement, I've been sure that O'Leary would end up running for Con leader.He knows a third-rate Shark Tank when he sees one.And after sizing up Clement over a bottle of wine, he probably came to the conclusion that he could easily beat him and any of these ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Debate, Kellie Leitch, and the Angry Pajamas

There were so many candidates at last night's Con leadership debate I couldn't fit them all into the picture.Or shake the image of a bunch of crows lined up on a humming power line.But although most of the debate was so boring I had to remember to keep breathing, near the end the feathers or the sparks ...

Montreal Simon: Has Kellie Leitch Finally Lost Her Marbles?

It's always been a bizarre cabaret act, a real freak show. Kellie Leitch's squeaky voiced imitation of Donald Trump, and her xenophobic campaign to make us believe that only she can defend our Canadian values.Even as she disgraces them.But now that ghastly drag show is becoming even weirder, with Leitch claiming that the "liberal elites" are calling her supporters ...

Montreal Simon: Now Can We Call The Cons TEAM FART?

As you may have heard, Michelle Rempel has blown a fuse again, and has caused another unseemly fuss, or in this case stink, in the House of Commons.By accusing the government of treating Alberta "like a fart in the room."And then launching herself at the Green leader Elizabeth May like a bat out of hell.I ...

Montreal Simon: Kellie Leitch and the Con Leadership Apocalypse

Now that I've almost recovered from the shock of seeing a deranged orange zombie like Donald Trump elected president, I decided to check out the Con leadership campaign.Which as you may know, I'm calling Conapocalypse 2.Only to discover it's not quite as scary, but almost as creepy, and definitely more hilarious.With the Con clown Kellie ...

Montreal Simon: Is the Harper Party Becoming the Trump Party?

As you know I always predicted that the Con leadership race was going to be a real circus.But who knew there would be so many candidates? Twelve and counting.Or that it would be such a fascist circus.For look who just joined the race.Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Painful Education of the Con Clown Lisa Raitt

As you may have heard, the absurd Con clown Lisa Raitt is said to be preparing to enter the Con leadership race.And to try to boost her profile she's been posing as the Con's finance critic, and attacking Justin Trudeau's plans for a national carbon tax. But when she recounted the story about how of ...

Montreal Simon: Mad Max and the Con Leadership Crazies

In my continuing coverage of the Con leadership race, I haven't written much about Maxime Bernier's candidacy, for obvious reasons.I didn't think the Bobo from the Beauce, as we call him in Quebec, had a snowflake's chance in hell of winning.Unless he recruited his former girlfriend's biker friends, rode through the convention hall, and scared ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Leadership Race Is Getting Ugly

I knew the Con leadership race was a total bust. With the desperate search for a good leader continuing, but getting nowhere.But at least it's been peaceful, and incredibly dull… For obvious reasons.But now that the SoCon Andrew Scheer has joined the race, that's changing.Now it's getting ugly.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Another Religious Fanatic Joins the Con Leadership Race

As if the Con leadership race wasn't bizarre or pathetic enough. With Kellie Leitch trying to stir up hatred against refugees and immigrants.And Brad Trost trying to stir up hatred against gay Canadians.Now another Con fanatic is joining the race.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Kellie Leitch’s Campaign Becomes Even More Absurd

I wasn't planning to write another post about Kellie Leitch for a while, because I feel I've written enough about her to last me a lifetime.But then I saw the cover of the latest issue of Macleans and I changed my mind.Because although that picture is absolutely ridiculous, and has people howling with laughter all over ...

Montreal Simon: The Return of the Monstrous Chris and Kellie Show

The other day I wrote about how Kellie Leitch's "Anti-Canadian Values" campaign had brought back memories of the Chris and Kellie show.The barbaric Con production where Leitch and Chris Alexander demonized Muslims, and invited Canadians to snitch on their neighbours.And it was such an ugly memory, I remember thinking thank goodness that show was cancelled, ...

Montreal Simon: Kellie Leitch and the Con Cinderella

I'm sure Kellie Leitch was desperately delighted when her campaign manager, the Prince of Darkness Nick Kouvalis, suggested a way to boost her profile.And make her the Cinderella of the Con leadership campaign.By slipping on the slipper of bigotry again, and proposing to screen immigrants for "anti-Canadian values."But although it has raised Leitch's profile, it hasn't quite ...

Montreal Simon: Will the Con Leadership Race Help Destroy the Harper Party?

Yesterday I ran a Michael Harris column that looked at the Cons apparent death wish.And how they seemed unable to escape the deathly legacy of Stephen Harper.And I also wondered how Rona Ambrose's decision to criticize Kellie Leitch for her demagogic proposal to screen immigrants for "anti-Canadian values,"would affect Ambrose's leadership.And her ability to hold her ...
