Marc Gendron Joins Grassroots Youtubing Movement against Tory Ads

All I will say is ROFL

Does anybody else notice Marc's voice cracking at the end there?

(mhmm, im only laughing on the inside Marc)

Jokes aside, this is the best response yet, that Gendron dude surely knows what he is doing.

Funny add! The conservatives (I can’t even convince myself to calling them Tories) messed up in a BIIIGGGGG way. They tried to present themselves as the kingpin of accountability, but only 1 year into office, they showed how they could talk the talk, but also how they would not walk the walk. Still, more than limiting ourselves to noticing the Tories’ lie, we should think about the wisdom of the decision itself. They acted promptly when Telus and BCE wanted to become income trusts themselves but as usual, instead of acting on a case-by-case basis, they decided to cut everything for everyone. One example that comes to mind is the energy income trusts one. Of course, in such hard days for the environment, energy companies aren’t exactly what I’d call popular. Still, there have been no proofs whatsoever that such energy trusts, with all their fiscal contributions, were responsible for governmental losses. In fact, it seems that they have asked Flaherty several times to demonstrate that, when it is all said and done (considering shareholders taxes, as well growth and investment allowed by lower taxes, their ability to buy other companies active in Canada who were owned by foreign groups, etc.), that the government was losing money with the trust-system. In fact, this system was part of what allowed our smaller energy trusts to have the vigour and wealth necessary to be part of Canada’s recent economic success. And before Bell and Telus, while energy trusts were actually thriving, the Conservatives didn’t see the necessity to change the rules. So, the question is, when we get back to power, to we exempt some groups (we know more about energy trusts because they were that much vocal, but there may be other victims of that decision) from that stupid conservative rule? I say we consider it strongly!
