As you know I have long believed that Stephen Harper's Cons are not a political party like any other Canadians have ever known.That they are more like a cult than a party.But even as their deranged leader drags us into his ghastly darkness, muzzles the truth, lies about everything, and bullies his opponents, still some of my friends say to me: Simon, don't exaggerate, it couldn't happen HERE.Read more »
Sometimes, especially on a cold spring day like today, I can't help feeling depressed about living in a country like Harperland.
I can't help thinking about how great we might have been, and what the Cons have made of us.
How once we were admired by the rest of the world, as a cool young country with decent, noble values. And how Stephen Harper and his reactionary cult have shamed us, and turned Canada into a grubby little pariah state.
And when I feel like that, as I did today, all I can say is thank goodness for people like Chris Hadfield…Read more »
I have to admit that I have always disliked Pierre Poilievre. Something about him rubs me the wrong way.He's abrasive, he's yappy, he's arrogant. He looks and acts like a weird old young guy trapped in the Cold War era. And his recent comment that the "root cause of terrorism is terrorism" only reinforced my belief that he is a brutish right-wing ideologue.As well as an absolute idiot.Read more »
Well after being missing in action for days, Stephen Harper finally dared show his face in the House of Commons today.
But it wasn't exactly a triumphal return, as you can see by the looks on the faces of his increasingly restless caucus.And who can blame them eh?When what he had to say must have had even some of those hapless Cons wondering whether Great Ugly Leader is losing his grip on reality. Read more »
The birds have been flocking back to the island as they do every spring. Flying in from south of the lake, on their way north.But this year I'm not as glad to see them, as I usually am.Because this year they can't help reminding me of what's going on in China. Read more »
He's spending millions of dollars attacking Justin Trudeau in the foulest way possible.Trying to brainwash people into believing that Trudeau is not a real man. Now he's preparing to spend millions more of OUR tax dollars trying to brainwash Canadians into thinking he's a real economist. Read more »
Well I don't know if there was a bright Jesus star hovering over Toronto fifty-four years ago .Or a Death Star.I don't know why the exorcist wasn't there. How hard is it to find a monstrous manger in a city for Crissakes !@#!! But I do know that on that fateful day so long ago Stephen Joseph Harper was born.And it was the day Canada started to die.Read more »
One of the worst things about living in Stephen Harper's monstrous Canada, is having to spend so much time writing about the crimes of the Con regime.The vile acts, the ugliness, the cruelty, the barbarism of that bestial cult that is slowly killing our country. Instead of being able to write about the more beautiful things, the good people, and the great Canadian stories that inspire me, and make our country worth saving.Read more »
Sometimes I can't help feeling that a lot of Canadians have forgotten the fundamental lesson of the War Measures Act.And that is, it wasn't Pierre Trudeau's finest hour, it was his darkest.It was an October nightmare, that led to the arrests of hundreds of innocent people. It wasn't needed to ensure public safety, or arrest and prosecute the terrorists. And this bill isn't either.Read more »
He has always wanted to strangle it. He has had to restrain himself for so long. From the moment he entered politics, with the support of an organization that was founded to destroy medicare.But now at last his foul assault on our precious healthcare system has begun.And it's both stealthy and monstrous.

Alexandre Boulerice is one of my favourite MPs.He's a big guy, and when he gets up in the Commons and shouts at Stephen Harper, you can see the tyrant flinch wince wobble.Which is a spectacle I rather enjoy eh?So you can imagine how outraged I was to see Great Wobbly Leader launch an all out attack on the big guy, when he wasn't there to defend himself.Over something he once said about the First World War !!!!

This time I waited until I was sure she was dead before I started celebrating eh?For I'll never forget the last time Margaret Thatcher's death was announced. And I was halfway through a bottle of cheap wine, until I realized it was only John Baird's pussy who had passed.But now ding dong she's really gone, and I'm making up for that bitter disappointment.

By now you've probably heard about this outrageous story. Dozens of employees at Canada’s largest bank are losing their jobs to temporary foreign workers, who are in Canada to take over the work of their department.But while the Royal Bank richly deserves what's coming to it, so do the Harper Cons.

It's a scene that keeps repeating itself in the streets of Montreal.A few hundred demonstrators set out on a peaceful march to protest against a totalitarian by-law limiting freedom of assembly.Only to be kettled by the riot squad, and then arrested. Like they were again this weekend.Read more »
For seven long and dark years Stephen Harper was able to hold this country in his iron grip.For years him and his Cons were able to fool Canadians into thinking they knew what they were doing.For years he was able to make the stooge media dance to his tinny tunes.But now it's all going horribly wrong.

When I woke up today, the sky was blue, the sun was shining, and for a moment I thought that Spring had arrived in Harperland. Finally !!!!!But then I stepped outside, realized that it was still horribly cold eh? And my day went rapidly down hill.Before I could even finish my first coffee, it was Sean, my very good and very NDP friend, on the phone and very angry: "Since when did YOU become a LIBERAL?" #@!!!Read more »
When you stare at the public face of Stephen Harper's sinister Con regime, what you see is horrifying enough.A tired, morally corrupt regime, that is willing to lie, muzzle people, or do anything to cling to power.But what most Canadians don't see, what is hidden from their view, is even more frightening.Read more »
As you probably know, I've been portraying the Cons as a scary mob for a very long time.From the days when Bev "Juice" Oda was running with the Harper gang, and driving the getaway car limo.To the even scarier present…
So you can imagine how delighted I was to see that even Andrew Coyne has now reached the same conclusion. Read more »
They say you are not supposed to speak ill of the dead. So I'd rather not say anything about the life and legacy of Ralph Klein.But unfortunately we live in a very sick democracy. A country corrupted by leaders like Stephen Harper.So when I see the MSM falling over themselves to see who can write a more glowing or fawning obituary, I believe some balance is required.Read more »
OMG. That wretched little Monkey King has done it again.Pooped on the planet. And shamed us in the eyes of the world.The Harper government is pulling out of a United Nations convention that fights droughts in Africa and elsewhere, which would make Canada the only country in the world outside the agreement.And if you thought it was just an unfortunate accident because someone forgot to put on his monkey diapers, you'd be wrong. He did it DELIBERATELY !!!! And the Cons have REASONS !!!! Read more »
The great Abraham Lincoln once said no man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar. But then he didn't live in Con Canada eh? And he didn't know Stephen Harper. Because either the great man was wrong, or Harper has a phenomenal memory. Just like his scary ancestor. Who never forgot ANYTHING his enemies did to him. For even as Great Lincoln Leader struggles to put down the backbench rebellion of the Reform Confederacy, he just can't stop LYING.Read more »
For seven years they held their tongues, so as not to scare Canadians.For seven years Stephen Harper was able to muzzle them, or force them to make sheep sounds.BAAAAAAAAAAA !!!!But now it's finally happened. The dam has broken. The old Reform gang is revolting !!!!.

Oh. My. Furry. Photo-op. It was supposed to be the animal show of animal shows.The Con Ministry of Propaganda and Disinformation's most spectacular production. A chance to boost Great Ugly Leader's sagging polls, by making him look as cute and as cuddly as a giant panda.But somehow, despite the heroic efforts of the marching band, and the FedEx cheerleaders, it just didn't work.Read more »
Gawd. You just can't teach old Cons new tricks eh?For there they are bombarding the airwaves with their grotesque Porky Action Plan ads again. Even though it's costing a fortune. The Harper government spent $21 million on major advertising campaigns under its Economic Action Plan brand in 2011-12, according to the latest annual report on ad spending.And even though we've told them those crappy ads are driving us NUTS !#@#!!
