    Look at this article

    We accept that partisanship is ubiquitous in policy, but shall we go up to make use of a symbol recognized by all the world’s children ? The conservatives have dared, by dressing their father Christmas in blue, the colour of their party.

    The season of office parties is well and truly begun. The conservative Party is no exception to this tradition and that is why its employees and their families gathered to celebrate in a hall of the Parliament on Wednesday evening. It was supposed to be private, but the elected officials are outrageously shared videos and photos on social networks.
    Because Christmas is everyone’s business, and you are made to live this magical day.

    Attention the party was gotten into place!!

    Hostilities were initiated in the beginning of the day with a performance given by members of parliament for the conservative caucus. This weekly session is usually used to bring together all the mps of the parties to discuss the political agenda. Well the conservatives have decided, instead, to use this precious time to sing Christmas carols.

    We enjoyed some Christmas carolling today after our Conservative caucus meeting. Excellent vocals from MPs Mark Warawa and Candice Bergen with Ed Fast tinkling the ivories. Merry Christmas everyone. #christmas #christmascarrols #cdnpoli #canpoli #cpc

    In the evening during the reception, Andrew Scheer has monopolized the dance floor to read a story to the children. They have listened carefully by eating a dinner on a traditional holiday (coleslaw!) until the arrival of father Christmas (blue !).

    Thank you to the members of our family @pcc_hq having brought little tonight. A lot of fun, a beautiful story (warning: the polar bear SAVES Christmas), treats and a special visit from Father Christmas! #JoyeuxNoël

    The “famous” maps

    The journalists from the Tribune of parliament were at the same time started to receive greeting cards of deputies. No need to feel unique, as shown in a previous article, there is a minimum of 676 000 cards that roam now in the trunk.

    It is clear that the conservatives were really in a hurry to celebrate Christmas, because the first card received from one of their member of parliament for the West, Mark Strahl. (Honestly, I don’t know why he sent me one, I’ve never even written his name in one of my texts.)

    But hey, the conservatives are festive, as Andrew Scheer has been the first leader among all the political parties to send me one this week. Honourable Mention for the garland of popcorn printed on the inside of the card. We would just like to know why he put such a decoration.

    The Area PolCan is a kind of daily report about current federal, but told in our own way. This will be the opportunity for you to do a little live policy, but by presenting you with things that you don’t see on the news.
