There is a detail about Prime Minister Stephen Harper that is very mum in Canada. It is a detail that may and will explain every decision he has made to date and every decision he will make in the future.
Environment Minister Peter Kent defended his government’s disdain and censorship of scientific facts claiming it was an “established practice.” This comes as the government plans to axe Environment Canada and cripple environmental assessments in their effort to quickly push forward the keystone pipeline project.
Today marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. While other countries that used it as a model for their own freedoms and rights may be celebrating, along with every person who cares about their freedom, the Conservatives aren’t and have openly criticized the charter.
When Conservative backbencher MP Brad Trost introduced his controversial idea to reopen the abortion debate, Stephen Harper quickly came to the cameras and assured Canadians it wasn’t going to happen. It turns out that Conservative backbencher MP Stephen Woodworth has been allotted an hour of debate with a committee this spring and a second hour of debate this fall to review a law that comes short of defining unborn children as “human beings.”
The Conservative crime bill will be put to a final vote tonight where their majority in numbers will allow it to pass.
It has been a busy week in politics. From election fraud allegations to the war against Bill-C30, Canadians can say that they have had quite a bit to deal with. Anonymous followed through with its word Friday, encouraging Canadians to research the talking points they discuss in their videos for themselves. These videos are said to be based on evidence from named and anonymous sources but some arguments rely on logical reasoning based on past events.
Anonymous makes its case clear and aggressively demands Conservatives backtrack and Toews resign.
While Vic Toews fights to the brink for his bill, and attempts to retract claiming he didn’t know it would permit warrantless access to all online and mobile activities, Canadians and activists are fighting back. As Toews hides behind child pornography and attempts to do what Conservatives do best: divide and conquer, the joke is on him as parts of his life entered public light.
Pierre Elliot Trudeau’s Liberals brought in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982. It gave Canadians the ease of mind and abilities to live free and independent lives without having to fear oppressive government regimes and without fearing their home, Canada. Today, Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper is re-inventing what it means to be afraid and watch out, he’s counting on your ignorance.
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews doesn’t like to have his private life exposed but is keen on exposing the lives of Canadians with Bill C-51, renamed to C-30, which would give the government and authorities unrestricted and unwarranted access to everything you do online and on your smartphones.
