Prime Minister Stephen Harper campaigned on having a “strong, stable, national Conservative Majority Government” to protect Canadians from a “coalition with the separatists.” It turns out that after a secret meeting with former PM Brian Mulroney and current Quebec Premier Jean Charest, Harper is ready to work with the separatists.
It’s one thing to say that you want to fix Ottawa. It’s one thing to say that you want to get rid of the Harper government. It’s a completely other thing to act on those words, it seems, for the NDP. After recent actions in the House of Commons and recent comments published by former strategist Brian Topp, the NDP affirm that dirty tactics are here to stay.
Do you remember the Accountability Act? It was a piece of legislation that the Conservatives passed in 2006 to diminish corruption by putting parliamentarians in check. It included the creation of a budgetary officer, whose mandate is to monitor federal finances. The Privy Council refused to give information on the wide range of cuts in Bill C-38 and as part of his job PBO head Kevin Page may likely be taking the Conservative government that created his position to court over a lack of accountability.
The opposition has been doing everything they can to stop Bill C38 or the Omnibus Budget Implementation Bill – the same bill that would attack and transform EI, the same budget that would attack pensions and retirement, and the same budget that would take an axe to environmental regulations to prop up the Alberta tar sands exploitation project.
While the Conservatives and NDP divide the East and West over the effects of the tar sands in terms of the economy and effectively play political games, and while Harper gets funded by oil lobbyists to attack Environmentalists as radical terrorists, an oil spill in Alberta is proving the dangers of the project.
The Conservatives love the monarchy and their actions show it. Not only do they believe in making the average Canadian citizen poorer, they believe in pocketing the money that they take from all of us. In times of economic constraint, what we see is a systematic theft of our money. This recent giveaway should make you as outraged as I am.
The Conservatives have come under fire over the F35 proposal and in a recent report, the Auditor General told them to do their homework on the costs. Shortly after, Defense Minister Peter Mackay admitted that he mislead Canadians on the cost of the stealth fighters for 2 years.
International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda’s office refuses to tell the Canadian people whether she has repaid the waste she charged Canadian tax payers for last Summer during her trip to London. While in London, Oda put Canadians on the tab for inappropriate travel costs, lavish hotel expenses, and chauffeured car service.
Conservative Party headquarters made a gruesome discovery yesterday when a package delivered to them contained a severed foot. Police found a second package which was addressed to the Liberal Party Headquarters – this one containing a hand. Police believe the parts came from a body they found in Montreal and there is a nation-wide warrant for Luka Rocco Magnotta’s arrest.
The only public investigation into mistakes made by the Conservatives in the F-35 purchase are set to be shut down, leaving questions pertaining to the $10 billion price gap found by the Auditor General unanswered and the acquisition further into the hands of secrecy.
