The post #PMHarperMustResign: A Twitter storm demanding Harper’s resignation is proposed appeared first on The Canadian Progressive.
By Obert Madondo | The Canadian Progressive, Feb. 18, 2013: In, 2004, Stephen Harper described Canada’s Senate as a “dumping ground for the favoured cronies of the Prime Minister.” He also said: “I will not name appointed people to the Senate. Anyone who sits in the Parliament of Canada must be elected by the people they represent.” Today, none of READ MORE

Canada’s petro-Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, is about to sell the soul of Canadian democracy to the Chinese. His Conservative majority government is about to sign the so-called Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPA) with China…. . . . → Read More: Canadian ProgressiveCanadian Progressive: Stop PM Harper’s FIPA Sell Out Of Canadian Democracy: PETITION
A political master-stroke of epic proportions. That’s my take on Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s take-down of opposition leader Tony Abbott in this 15-minute speech on sexism in Parliament. OK, let’s put aside the fact that Gillard’s passionate and personal take-down followed Abbott’s attack on the embattled Speaker of the house, Peter Slipper, who resigned following [...]
In Montreal Tuesday, Papineau MP Justin Trudeau announced his bid to lead the Liberal Party of Canada. Here’s the full text of his address: “Make no small dreams, they have not the power to move the soul” – Goethe Now that’ll take courage, but more than that, it’ll take hard, honest work. So let me [...]
After months of speculation, it’s official! Justin Trudeau is running for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada. And he’s already dreaming big: he wants to replace Stephen Harper as Canada’s next prime minister. Announcing his leadership bid in Montreal Tuesday, the Papineau MP delivered a speech unequivocally pointing in that direction. The speech opened with the famous [...]
Is it possible that Stephen Harper’s uncompromising critics (myself included) are missing something about the prime minister? This 4th grader seems to suggests so. She believes Harper is the best PM. Ever! And Harper agrees. The girl’s drawing (below) made the list of photos of the day for August 2012 on the prime minister’s official website. Even better, it earned a special place on the Dear Leader’s desk. A drawing by Erin Arbuckle (Grade 4) sits on Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s desk.

For a second straight day, a Conservative MP hosting Stephen Harper introduces the Dear Leader as “the prime minister of Cannibal”.
Yesterday we’d a jolly good laugh when Yukon Tory MP Ryan Leef got overjoyed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit and invited those gathered to “join me in welcoming back to the Yukon, the Prime Minister of Cannibal.” Conservative MP, Chris Alexander’s recent take on the F-35 fighter jet controversy is no such laughing matter. It’s an insult to Canadians’ intelligence. During a CBC News’ Power & Politics panel discussion on the Harper Government’s F-53 jet plan, Alexander offered the following statement: “There was a misunderstanding, to some extent, in the Canadian public opinion, to some extent perpetrated by

Oooops! The Dear Leader makes his Conservative lieutenants wet their pants, doesn’t he? Last night, Yukon Tory MP Ryan Leef was so overjoyed by Harper’s visit that he invited those gathered to “join me in welcoming back to the Yukon, the Prime Minister of Cannibal… (laughter), Canada, the Right Honorable, Honorable, Stephen Harper.” (Applause). Or maybe Leef wanted to say “cannabis”? Whatever the case, this was a Freudian slip? Through Leef’s mouth, the Conservative heart spoke. Watch the CBC video:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is reportedly involved in the selection of Canada’s next top soldier, the Chief of Defence Staff.
So far, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s ideology-inspired of project of social and political engineering expresses itself most eloquently as the Conservatives’ egregious assault on civil liberties, the metamorphosis of Canada into a petro-state, and militarization of both Canadian society and foreign policy. We’re yet to acknowledge how this project oppresses the “other” while empowering utopian idealists who believe that the eradication of minorities will cleanse their world of some perceived contamination.

No doubt, Stephen Harper and the Conservatives are determined to create a Canadian nationalism that is both socially conservative and loyal to the British Empire. Their key strategy is to radically revise history and suppress certain moments that do not identify with past Conservative leaders. This penchant for naked revisionism has led to a molestation of the historic moment, on April 17, 1982, when Queen Elizabeth II proclaimed the Constitution Act of 1982.

There are some major problems with the #DenounceHarper hashtag on twitter. It has been trending on twitter for the last day or so and, for all intents and purposes, it has been quite a silly affair. First of all, there have been complaints surrounding Mr. Harper’s Conservatives only winning 39% of the vote and landing [...]
If an instant reminder of let-your-lesson-be-learned childhood story, The Emperor’s New Clothes, isn’t what comes straight to mind when you see Margaret Sutherland’s portrait of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, then … well… you need to read more children’s stories.
The painting, called Emperor Haute Couture, is on display at the Wilson Room of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s central brance until May 29, in Kingston, Ontario. It is one part “the modern man” and one part “The Emperor’s New Clothes”.

If by-elections are to result from the recent reports of election fraud in a growing number of ridings then a 30 day time limit might already be ticking.
The Canada Elections Act (see below) clearly stipulates that any application for a by-election resulting from election fraud must be filed within 30 days of when said fraud was known or should have been known.
At this time there is uncertainty about details and evidence relating to robocalls that attempted to suppress voting in a large number of ridings, but as broader facts are established, such as evidence that voter suppression robocalls

OTTAWA – The Prime Minister’s nutsac is being squeezed in an ever-tightening vise, an NDP member said Sunday afternoon. It was revealed that as many as 34 ridings could be involved in the voter-suppression case.
A spokesman for Lee Valley Tools remarked that while the type of the vise used certainly matters, it will almost certainly render the nuts “out of round”. Prime Minister’s balls couldn’t survive the 4″ cast-iron “Thatcher” model, tool expert says
LONDON – Taking the sting out of the recent closure of the Electromotive plant, the Prime Minister announced Friday that London will be the site of the Navy’s new headquarters and largest naval shipyard. London’s new military command centre will oversee operations of Canadian Fleet Atlantic, responsible for the operation and readiness of the Atlantic fleet. The Canadian Task Group Centre in London will be the home base for any East Coast deployment of ships to military exercises or operations. The new Ontario base will have the ability to protect Canadian waters while boosting employment in Canada’s shipbuilding sector.
