The Ontario Liberals are so desperate. They are running one of the most disingenuous smear filled campaigns I’ve ever seen from Liberals.
First they’ve tried to dissuade progressive voters by suggesting that the ONDP and the PCPO are the same. Thus, don’t vote for the ONDP. I mean after all the ONDP and the PCPO . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: A vote for the ONDP is a vote for “progressive” government, or McGuinty is not “progressive” (updated)
It appears the ONDP is slowly becoming the only choice to stop a Conservative government. Progressives and strategic voters take notice. For Progressives, the ONDP is the only authentically progressive party to vote for. For those who insist on voting strategically, seems like more and more a vote the ONDP is your strategic choice to . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: ONDP overtakes Liberals: “Strategic voters” take notice
While the McGuinty Liberals may have survived Collegate during the last election campaign, they must, nevertheless, still get a little nervous every time they see “slush fund” in the headlines.
What’s relevant about Collegate for the present provincial campaign is:
1. among this government’s unscrupulous activities are “slush funds”
2. when faced with the accusation, . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: Ontario Liberals must be a little nervous seeing the words “slush fund” in today’s headlines, or please move on newscycle
Perhaps, I’m an anomaly. Perhaps I’m just too naive and insist on clinging to fundamental ideals of democracy (e.g. the electorate should be as well and truly informed in its political engagements, such as during elections). Perhaps it’s just unrealistic to expect to be able to vote for something, rather than against something, and thereby . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: When will Ontarians tire of cynical, sophomoric, and disingenuous politics?
In my previous post I wrote about one of the McGuinty government’s most egregious hours: McGuinty’s management of “security” at last year’s G20 Summit meetings in Toronto. In today’s Star, Justice Melvyn Green has vindicated the actions of demonstrators at Queen & Spadina on Saturday of the protests. In essence, Justice Green concludes that yes […] . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: Aggression during G20 perpetrated by police, but demonstrations criminalized by Harper & McGuinty, or “When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called “the People’s Stick.”- Mikhail Bakunin
One of the most despicable aspects of the McGuinty Liberal government, among many others, was its handling of security at the G20 Summit last summer in Toronto. Dalton McGuinty oversaw one of the greatest civil rights abuses in Canadian history. When you start to crack down on dissension you begin to destroy the very thing […] . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: “_Capitalism is the Crisis: Radical Politics in the Age of Austerity_”
A website has been created by progressive women dedicated to defeating Tim Hudak in the coming election. Can an endorsement of the Andrea Horwath and ONDP be far behind? Surely, they’re not backing the insidiously sexist Liberals with an avowed R… . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: Progressive Women Across Ontario Seem to be Getting Ready to Back Andrea Horwath and the ONDP
According to Heather Mallick in Today’s The Star: But what he and Hudak and Harper should understand is that abortion is not a “chip” on a woman’s shoulder, it is her body and her life, her internal sanctity and her choice. I am warning those who want Canadian women to lose their right to abortion […] . . . → Read More: Acts of Citizenship: Heather Mallick ignores Andrea Horwath as the only party leader who rightly champions women’s rights, or sorry sister it’s hard out here for a Liberal shill like me
