“To date, no party or leader has treated you honestly to an explanation of what a $56 billion deficit or $600 billion debt mean for your family or your finances. Suggesting there’ll be no tax hikes, spending cuts or mortgage increases is akin to Stephen Harper telling us one year ago Canada was immune to recession and our budget would stay balanced. It’s crap.In fact, it’s fair to say my experiences in politics over the past four years have reminded me why 97% of Canadians do not belong to a party”
It has always confounded me as to why the crooks, abusers too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
What now a merely short period of time it has made a big, visible behavior difference in our leader now as well. In reality now he continues to go downhill morally. One step forward and one step backwards Prime Minister Stephen Harper had now in the past once pledged to usher in a new era of transparency, accountability and honest brokerage, the same Stephen Harper had been one of the loudest most effective voices decrying mouldy cheque book politics is lying, hypocritically doing the same thing even. Consider the Conservative’s pathetic excuse for breaking Canada’s ethics laws – the Liberals did it before us. Whatever happened to providing a more transparent and ethical government than your predecessor?
The abuses of power by the Conservatives is growing rapidly, making unimaginable gains. Unimaginable because these same Tories watched the Grits fall from power largely because of corruption-related activities and promised the cleanup. The Conservatives now even uses millions of taxpayer dollars promote themselves and the prime minister on flyers delivered to constituents homes, as well as on advertisements and websites used to promote the federal government’s stimulus-funding efforts. The party-comes-first philosophy shown by the Conservatives is not what Stephen Harper promised when he was in opposition. Harper, promised the party corruption and lack of accountability would be a thing of the past if his party took power. But history has a way of repeating itself, especially these slimy patronage political games that seem wrongfully irresistible to Conservative political strategists as well . The Conservatives began to abuse power before they even came to power. It was discovered that during the 2006 campaign — while Stephen Harper was pledging a new era of accountability — his political machine was operating a sly in-and-out scheme that camouflaged expenditures so as to allow his party to spend more than entitled under election regulations. Many examples of the Conservative abuse of power followed PM Stephen Harper’s own false government’s definition of acceptable behavior is the one set by past Liberals. Many are now Conservative Ottawa-cynical. The changing of the federal government clearly has been nothing more than new dogs learning to improve the old bad tricks where now milking maximum recovery credit from the still lingering recession misery has become a Conservative government preoccupation and now also a Conservative fiasco, publicity nightmare, the latest game played with our tax dollars by a hypocritical, lying Conservative government that promised to do things better and differently.
Government of Canada Logo – Conservative corruptions
Knobscam. Mr. Harper. I’m one Canadian who puts your abuse of my tax dollars before your ability to play the piano. Harper figures he can buy all of us. Sorry honey, not enough to get my vote. Please Canada wake up & get these idiots out of Ottawa, please! http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/10/20/harper-stimulus.html
Tories trumpet doorknob repair as stimulus: Liberals Opposition parties called out the Harper government for including what they say is routine maintenance to federal buildings in P.E.I. in its economic stimulus plan. Liberal MP Wayne Easter said a huge “propaganda” sign has been posted outside an RCMP building in Charlottetown advertising the stimulus plan and informing people of the installation of “internal door hardware” inside. The “hardware” in question is doorknobs, Easter said. “Do you think this is stimulus, putting a doorknob in an RCMP building in this country? [Prime Minister] Stephen Harper calls this stimulus?” he said, Easter said federal officials have said $800,000 has been allocated for repair and restoration of federal buildings and facilities in Prince Edward Island and that each of the buildings features a large sign advertising the action plan. He said the repairs include moving an iron fence, installing a boiler room door, putting in an air-exchange system and upgrading elevators. The sad thing is that many Canadians are falling for this. DON’T BE MISLEAD BY THE CONSERVATIVES. This Conservative government is obviously using smoke and mirrors but Canadians are not that stupid.
Conservatives next stating their present overall Marketing strategy is no different than the past Liberal sponsorship program, only undeniably admit they too have entered the cesspools of immorality now are blindly failing to see that was the main reason why the Liberals were kicked out too.. and now it is rightfully also the Conservative’s Party’s turn to be removed. Prime Minister Harper and his Conservative cronies should learn from their Liberal colleagues that Canada voters have a low tolerance for political parties who lack ethics and good judgment. History stunningly repeats itself. Some say that It isn’t as bad in that the Harper has nothing as serious as a sponsorship scandal on his hands. But it’s just as bad, if not worse, in that this is the lying new Conservative prime minister who promised a new way was still hypocritically giving us the old.
Nor does the increasingly visible, undeniable fact that Conservative ridings across Canada received more than their fair share of big-money stimulus projects paid for by taxpayers bolster opposition allegations of pork barrelling in the multi-billion-dollar stimulus package. Wild Rose, a Tory seat west of Calgary, landed 24 million-dollar-plus projects, more than any other riding in the country too. Of the 20 ridings across the country with the most big-dollar projects, 13 are held by Conservative MPs. Yes many of the disbursed funds have been concentrated on Conservative government-held ridings how does this square with Harper’s own past loud, righteous pre-election rhetoric. The difference between government and opposition ridings is particularly pronounced in Quebec, where the Conservative ridings received 22 per cent of large projects, although the party holds only 13 per cent of the ridings, which means they received 62 per cent more per riding than if the money were divided evenly. And although Quebec has 23 per cent of the population of Canada, it has also now so far received only seven per cent of projects listed on the Economic Action Plan map. Ontario, taking 54 per cent of all Canadian projects — although the province accounts for 39 per cent of the population.
Many of us once had understood simply that some Liberal party members misused their positions of trust with public funds–and that fuelled cynicism throughout Canada that the Liberals had grown immoral, fat and complacent. Now it can also be equally applied to the new Conservatives too. NDP MP Pat Martin said he wants auditor general Sheila Fraser to investigate the way the Conservatives are handling government-funded communications and advertising. “They are clearly trying to blur the lines between where the government of Canada ends and the Conservative Party of Canada begins. I think it’s not only unethical and misleading — it’s probably illegal.” It is immoral, illegal for it is also the same type of unacceptable lying distortion that says that Stephen Harper has an elected majority government, when he still has only an elected minority government. The sad reality is that too many Conservative, Albertans, supporters spin doctors, are also unacceptable now guilty of supporting this immoral, hypocritical behavior too Albertans, who of all Canadians, merely accepted the latest undeniable, unacceptable revelations of inadequacies –never mind Harper’s stacking Senate appointments, his favouring Conservative lobbyists or enforcing ideological purity in judicial appointments –with a falsely indifferent attitude . After they were once one of the loudest voices to call for fundamental reform, to end the old-style politics of patronage and entitlements, to insist now instead upon clean, open governance and straight talk and look at what has happened to the voice, it is wrongfully silent now.
Once in power they all tend to behave the same way, to become corrupted, the Conservative it seems too. Those same past sensible Conservative moral demands must be applied to all governments in Ottawa, including any Conservatives ones now too.
RCMP MUSICAL CHAIRS
QUESTION: GUESS WHICH RCMP LIE?
ANSWER: IT SEEMS MOST OF THEM DO
It is not the rapists, drunk drivers, tax money abusers that mostly fill the courts calendars, docks rather it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets..
A picTure is worth a 1000 words? so what about a movie?
OTTAWA – The Conservative government says legislation to be tabled Wednesday will set a two-year mandatory minimum federal jail sentence for fraud over $1 million. What a joke.. Steal one million dollars, go to jail for 2 years only, and when you come out you can likley spend the money you have hidden as well..
