“Most of us seem to have a really bad habit of electing liars, electing the people who tell us what we want to hear, AND MANY OF THEM ARE LIARS WHO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK WE WANT TO HEAR SO THEY CAN BE ELECTED.” http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/let-us-all-stop-electing-liars-or-the-alcoholics/ and any limits on the ability of women to sue for pay equity is a moral absurdity when the cost of living for a women is the same as for a man now too.
But that seemingly bleak number in a new Leger Marketing poll doesn’t tell the entire story.
About 37 per cent of those asked said Harper should stay, and this mirrors the approximate support Canadians gave the Tories and their leader in the Oct. 14 election, says Leger vice-president Dave Scholz.
In other words, support or condemnation of Harper breaks down along party lines, with Tory supporters generally content while those who don’t normally vote for him say he should get his pink slip if the Tories lose power.
In fact, among identified Conservative voters, only 16 per cent feel he should step down in the event of his party’s defeat, the poll shows.
Seventy-six per cent of Tory supporters would prefer Harper to stay, with eight per cent undecided.
The fact that all three coalition leaders were born in Quebec may factor into the West’s disenchantment with Ottawa.
Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe was born and raised in Montreal, while Liberal Leader Stephane Dion was born and raised in Quebec City. NDP Leader Jack Layton, the sole Anglophone of the three, was born and raised in Hudson, Quebec, although he is currently the MP for the riding of Toronto-Danforth.
- An exclusive Sun Media-Leger Marketing poll finds that if the Tories are toppled in a non-confidence vote, 43% would prefer to return to the polls while 40% would opt for a coalition.
- In B.C., 54% prefer to go to an election while 29% support a coalition.
- 71% of Albertans oppose coalition, preferring election.
- Those in the east and central Canada are more open to a coalition, especially in Quebec where 58% want it.
- Ontarians are the most deeply divided in the land, with 43% picking an election and 39% preferring a coalition.”
Harper had plans to control all RCMP external and internal communications by appointing an assistant deputy minister who would vet everything. This plan has been put on hold, likely until Harper gets a majority.
PS: It is undeniable that the coalition proposals with Liberal S Dion as the temporary head IS NOT SUPPORTED BY MANY.. THEY NEED TO COME UP WITH A BETTER LEADER.. THE TWO MAIN CANDIDATES FROM ONTARIO WILL FOR SURE NOT WIN A MAJORITY FOR THEM NEXT TOO.

> I have written many times, even before the last election that we will continue to have problems with our leaders if we continue to elect liars, and alcoholics. Would you allow a known alcoholic, liar medical surgeon to operate on you if you were seriously ill? Generally certainly not! So why would you then hire a lying alcoholic for any governmental position? Stephen Harper is a definite unrepentant, undeniable liar, for now already we have seen the unrepentant liar lie to keep his job even again recently. He has lied, distorted the facts about the Bloq Quebecois as being next a main part of the proposed coalition government. He has lied that the coalition replacement of him was an undemocratic action now as well when it is clearly legitimate. He has mislead us by saying he has the sole elected mandate to rule when that is not the case as well in a minority government. He Harper has long been rightfully accused of hidden agendas, and even recently has lied about what his election mandate was, it certainly was not a right to kill all of the opposition parties, all of liberals, Socialists, Communists, or whatever and his election mandate now clearly not a right for him to do what he wants, to do his own thing. He has now lied about so many other things too. Now I again ask why do we elect and support liars? when nothing Good can really come from a liar still too
Now PM Stephen Harper has acknowledged my concerns but what about all of the other MPs?
