Tommy Douglas was founding member of communist party of Canada. He said: cant have deficits & healthcare




The real shocker would be any Liberal with their lips moving, not lying. I wonder how many Liberal party members have become Millionaires since 2015? Lie, Cheat Steal, its the Liberal way.


Imagine that! A Liberal caught lying.[ohmy]

The Wilkinson family has lived off the Taxpayer for Generations it appears . . .

When you can't get elected as a socialist or marxist you switch to the Lieberals, just like the Turdoughs.


The piece says Douglas was elected in Burnaby-Coquitlam after he was defeated in Saskatchewan. Actually, he was elected in Nanaimo- Cowichan- The Islands. https://www.facebook.com/NanaimoMuseum/photos/a.322108487834801/2213555072023457/?type=3&av=100009620111686&eav=AfYA2JH9HmzOYT8wiazLOt90JqfltUPG378smTEt_Zi7viF85ImZmOcdKyumiOfNFhw
