Canada has changed and is still changing before our very eyes. We are being governed by ‘thugs in suits’ and we are going downhill at an alarming rate.
Who will stop them?
Well the NDP and Liberal’s are trying, but of course joining forces to derail Harper and take Canada back seems not to be as enticing as pretending that one or the other could become PM one day.
Their ‘Canada can wait policy’ is worrisome and could play into the Harper crowds hands.
Well in any case it seems as though ‘Harper and his Wrecking (Read more…)
Holy Mayan prophesy. I think I now know how the Con regime is going to end eh? Not with a bang but a whimper. With acts of sheer folly, and howls of laughter.For there was Stephen Harper today, in the Con circus that was once our Parliament, accusing the NDP of being a "gong show."Read more »

Democracy 101..When a person of either gender is elected to office, and then appointed to a Ministry, (s)he is obligated to vote based, not on personal belief, but on the verifiable will of the people…further, as a Federal Minister, that person should take into consideration the will of the majority of Canadians..who recently were polled and voted 75% not to re-open the abortion debate…a pretty strong mandate by anyone’s standards. Those are the principles by which democratic electees vote- to say that they “vote their conscience” is to denigrate the idea of representation, and put forward a rationale
About five years ago I made this button of Rona Ambrose. So I'm glad to see that my confidence in her was fully justified.Canada’s minister for the status of women joined nine other Conservative cabinet ministers and dozens of backbenchers in voting in favour of a motion to study the rights of the fetus, even as the Prime Minister’s Office suggested it is time to move on.Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth’s motion to have a committee look at when human life begins was defeated 203-91 in a vote on Wednesday night.So I can wear it again.Read more » . . . → Read More: Montreal Simon: Rona Ambrose and the Wacky Woody Show
I’m outraged that Rona Ambrose, Minister of State for the Status of Women in Canada, voted to re-open the abortion debate. The legal right to choose if and when to have children is absolutely fundamental to women’s rights, and I find it appalling that there’s an anti-feminist in charge at Status of Women. Doesn’t the Harper Government have any respect for women?
I’d estimate that half the women I know have had both abortions and children. Some had abortions in their youth, followed by children later on. Some had abortions after they’d had all the children they wanted.

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

Camouflage won’t help this man.
Let’s work through the list of suspects, shall we?
Here’s a copy of the email in question:
So the suspects are obviously all Alberta Conservative caucus members. Let’s trim that down using the evidence in question. There were 27 Conservatives from Alberta elected in 2011. Easily excluded are Jason Kenney, Stephen Harper (who isn’t on the list
Wildrose is under attack! The same people that caused the Liberal Party of Canada to be in power for 13 uninterrupted years now have Wildrose in their crosshairs. They want nothing more than to see the Redford PCs re-elected to impose their big government knows best, ivory tower views on all of us.
In a fundraising email sent to supporters yesterday by campaign chairman Cliff Fryers, the Wildrose Party revved up its political fear machine by pointing out that others are revving up theirs.
