Excited Delirium: When Will Stephen Harper Take Credit for Cheap Gas?

Even though Stephen Harper is rarely responsible for anything bad, it’s just a matter of time before he takes credit for falling prices at the gas pumps. Just wait … it’ll happen.

centre of the universe: Transparency?

I don’t think that word means what you think it means. We just passed the deadline by which First Nations bands are required by the Federal Government to disclosed audited financial statements. The audited financial statements must be accompanied by a separate schedule which details the salaries for Chiefs and councillors. There are some good . . . → Read More: centre of the universe: Transparency?

Excited Delirium: A Balanced Budget Isn’t A ‘Left’ or ‘Right’ Thing

Fiscal management isn’t a ‘left’ ‘right’ issue. It’s good housekeeping that anyone can organize. It’s the priorities that are different and ultimately set the parties apart. By their record, the Conservatives are the worst when it comes to financial management.

centre of the universe: Standing there tongue tied 

I have never voted for a Conservative candidate in my entire life. Sometimes it’s because I don’t like the candidate themselves or what they stand for (looking at you, Maurice Vellacott, Brad Trost, and Tom Lukiwski), and sometimes it’s because I don’t like their party’s platform. It’s true that I’m a firm believer in socialism, . . . → Read More: centre of the universe: Standing there tongue tied 

centre of the universe: Get to know

I’m pretty sure some of my local candidates in the NINE WEEK ELECTION CAMPAIGN (thanks for wasting taxpayer money on THAT) have me on all of their “do not call” lists. Ever since the great debacle of 2011 in which I asked the man who became my MP what his party’s platform was for supporting . . . → Read More: centre of the universe: Get to know

The Progressive Economics Forum: Harper’s housing promises and the crisis of affordability

Over the past two weeks, Stephen Harper has made three new housing-related promises on the campaign trail. However, they won’t help the crisis of affordability. The pattern is familiar: make things worse and prepare to blame others.

First, there’s the promise to allow first-time home buyers with RRSPs to take an extra $10,000 out of . . . → Read More: The Progressive Economics Forum: Harper’s housing promises and the crisis of affordability

Michal Rozworski: Harper’s hopeless housing promises

Over the past ten days, Stephen Harper has introduced three new housing policy promises. However, they won’t help the crisis of affordability. The pattern is familiar: make things worse and prepare to blame others.

First, there’s the promise to allow first-time home buyers with RRSPs to take an extra $10,000 out of their retirement savings . . . → Read More: Michal Rozworski: Harper’s hopeless housing promises

Why the hyper-reaction to Linda McQuaig’s comments about keeping the Tar Sands in the ground? Because it exposes Stephen Harper’s lies and lack of plan.

Excited Delirium: Why Was CBC Radio’s Coverage of the Election Announcement SO Embarrassing?

Yesterday’s CBC radio’s coverage of the election announcement was awkward at best. Is it intentional now?

Excited Delirium: Electioneering and the Upcoming Media War on the Opposition

I believe that Stephen Harper is going to act on something tomorrow that he’s been aware of and planning for a very long time: the actual 2015 election date. The results will shock Canadians.

Excited Delirium: Justice Served?

Yesterday’s court ruling concerning Robert Dziekanski reminded me why I start this blog. And why things have gone from bad to worse under the Stephen Harper Conservatives.

Trashy's World: The Cons are already lining up their hate campaign in Ottawa South…

…in advance of next year’s Federal election. I was just cruising through Twitter and found this: Looking through the followers of this anonymous account, there is a veritable who’s-who of the Ottawa conservative Twitter attack dawg crew. Same ol’, same ol’…. David is and has been a very effective and responsive MP. And as the . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: The Cons are already lining up their hate campaign in Ottawa South…

Trashy's World: Perhaps brilliant in the short term…

… but this may bite Justin’s butt after he is elected PM. However, critics can no longer point to a lack of direction or policies… This is a doozy! Good on him, this is the type of leadership many Canadians have been waiting for. (1) Trashy, Ottawa, Ontario

Trashy's World: The issues for the 2015 election…

1) The various CPC scandals…. 2) The issue that, if the Grits are smart, will win them a majority: stopping the phasing out of home mail delivery No wonder Harper wanted the House to rise early. Justin should send him a note of thanks for this ready-made election platform plank! (1) Trashy, Ottawa, Ontario

Not an Official Green Party Canada Site: The relentless collapse of the Green Party of Canada’s grassroots.

Back in May I laid out the evidence to support my contention that the Green Party of Canada is suffering a sustained collapse at the grass-roots level. To summarise my arguments, the local Electoral District associations were largely formed to capitalise on the Revenue Sharing agreements between the Green Party`s head office, and the local . . . → Read More: Not an Official Green Party Canada Site: The relentless collapse of the Green Party of Canada’s grassroots.

Trashy's World: Con talking head is “disappointed” in our democratic process…

…huh? Conservative Party spokesman Fred DeLorey called the decision disappointing. “Fifty two thousand people in Etobicoke-Centre followed the rules, cast their ballots and today had their democratic decision thrown into doubt,” he said. Well, no, Mr. DeLorey. Some of those 52,000 voters in the riding did NOT follow the rules and that is why the . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Con talking head is “disappointed” in our democratic process…

Trashy's World: One year on…

One year ago today, a minority of Canadians elected a Harper majority government. So, what have I learned? I learned that growing pot is a worse crime than being a pedophile. That it’s OK to force people to register a car, but an affront to democracy to do so for a gun. That the government . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: One year on…

Politics Canada: Missing Conservative robocall records no surprise

We have another case of electoral fraud where the trail of evidence has led directly to the Conservative Party of Canada’s headquarters. We now learn that Elections Canada has discovered that several key records are missing, records which would have helped them to identify “Pierre Poutine“.
