Uh oh. What bad timing. Just the other day he was blowing his horn and telling his Con caucus that we must "seize the moment" and go "further and faster."
Telling us all that we must move even MORE oily goodness by rail. Because Canada Alberta needs the money eh?But now he's playing a tiny violin, reaching for a fire extinguisher, and watching Alberta burn. Read more »
Well I see that Stephen Harper hasn't dared reply to Tom Steyer's letter demanding to know whether he has been working with the Tea Party extremists to blackmail the U.S. government. We have a saying in the United States that I believe may also resonate in Canada: When you go to bed at night with no snow on the ground, and you wake up in the morning to find snow, you can safely conclude it snowed. And I must say I'm not surprised eh? Not just because he'd rather not admit that his Harperite oil pimps HAVE been lobbying the Tea (Read more…)
Uh oh. I knew Stephen Harper's all out offensive to try to force Obama to approve the Keystone pipeline was going to end badly eh?First he made a fool of himself by declaring that he wouldn't take no for an answer. Now Tom Steyer wants to know if he's been collaborating with the Republican teabaggers who are trying to shutdown the U.S. government.Read more »
OMG. You'd think she would do better. You'd think she would live up to the honour of being the first Inuk appointed to a federal cabinet. You'd think she would do all she could to help and protect the people who live in the arctic from the devastating effects of climate change. Her people.But no, Leona Aglukkaq is no Minister of the Environment. She's just another shabby Con climate change denier. Read more »
OMG. Sound the humiliation alert siren. I just KNEW that Stephen Harper's deranged Crusade to try to get Obama to aprove the Keystone Pipeline was going to end badly.I knew the writing was on the wall when his army of Con lobbyists was laughed out of Washington after trying to fool the Americans into believing that the Big Oil boys in Alberta were model environmentalists. And that Great Green Leader was the next best thing to Mother Nature…Read more »
Well he may be losing his battle to convince Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, but I see nothing will stop Stephen Harper from launching yet another oily crusade. First he will conquer or bribe British Columbia.A parade of cabinet ministers and senior bureaucrats will head to British Columbia starting next week as part of a major push to mollify opponents of building oil pipelines to the West Coast, CBC News has learned. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is signalling he intends to make progress on proposals to connect Alberta's oilsands with ports in British Columbia and the lucrative (Read more…)
Well I guess he knew he couldn't hide forever eh?And that he had to get as far away from the media and the Senate scandals as he could, without looking like he was fleeing the country.Mike Duffy's threat to drag him into court and grill him like a sardine seal must have driven him over the deep end.So up to the North he went on his Great Escape Tour. And now he's bellowing like a walrus !!! Read more »
OMG. It's another Con scandal AND a horror show at the same time. A Nightmare at 24 Sussex Drive. The old mansion is crumbling, but Stephen Harper is refusing to move out !!! With Prime Minister Stephen Harper declining to move his family out of 24 Sussex Drive, the National Capital Commission has been unable to perform substantial renovations to curb rising energy costs at the official residence.He won't leave the Big House, even though it's costing taxpayers an arm and a leg to keep it at body temperature.Read more »
When future generations of young Canadians are forced by their teachers to study the history of Stephen Harper's years in power, the so-called Great Darkness, one question will probably be really difficult to answer.Because it will exceed their understanding of depravity and insanity.And it is this one: Why if he was so bad, so mad, such a compulsive liar, and such a ghastly bully, did he fool so many Canadians for so long?

Well there he was today in his crumbling bastion of Quebec City, in the province of the fiery nightmare, looking as shaken, or just plain weird, as I have ever seen him. Trying to reply to Obama's humiliating slap in the face. Prime Minister Stephen Harper responded Friday to U.S. President Barack Obama's dim view about whether the Keystone XL pipeline would spur significant job growth, holding firm to his belief that the project will boost employment "on both sides of the border" and bolster the continent's long-term security.But never daring to challenge his figures.

Well I never said the end of the Con regime would be pretty eh? But who knew it would be so humiliating? Such a crude awakening. Read more »
I have no idea what Stephen Harper must have thought when he saw the oily flames of hell engulf the little town of Lac-Mégantic.But I'm sure it wasn't pretty eh?For while on the one hand it might have crossed his mind that the tragedy could help sell his pipeline projects.On the other hand he must also realize that those hellish images can only make more Canadians understand to what kind of Big Oil nightmare he would condemn us.Read more »

It's like a really bad horror movie.One that could only happen in Harperland, where madness reigns, and the Big Lie RULES.A B-movie where Thomas Mulcair gets swarmed by a small army of Con oil pimps, for warning the Americans the pimps are trying to scam them.
While the Con pimps, who are selling us out to foreign interests, accuse him of snitching on them. Or betraying Canada, like Alison Redford charged today. Read more »

He's BAAAAACK!!!Joe "Oily" Oliver, the screaming scarecrow of the Tar Sands.First he called Canadian environmentalists job killing extremists, and tools of foreign interests.Then he promised we would be able to drink the tarry bubbly from the tailing ponds.
