“Canadians should be really concerned both with what’s happened and with what they’re looking at,” she said.
“I believe we’re looking at an extreme Conservative agenda that’s intended to put in place the Harper vision long after Stephen Harper is gone.”
The above quote from Maude Barlow on the alternative summit called to coincide with the Conservative Party Convention that began yesterday.
So you think Harper might be sneaky and criminal but he’s good for the country?
So you think that secret “Free Trade” deals are good for Canada?
What makes you think Canadians and our environment are in good, but sneaky, hands?
Harper believes he’s right about the whole world. He’s wrong about most, if not all, of it.
If you trust him… so are you.
The guy who would have got us into the Iraq War, had he been in charge when the then current PM, Jean Chrétien, kept us out.
The guy who has wanted to eliminate public broadcasting and Canada’s medicare since he was president of the National Citizens Coalition (for Four Years) from 1998 to 2002. As long as he has Peter Mansbridge et alii tamed, he’ll permit the CBC to exist as a lapdog, almost Pravda-ish agency, dumbed down to keep us distracted and somnolent. Much cleverer than using it purely as a propaganda tool which might actually be noticed by our sleepy “couch pots.”
Nineteen eighty-four is here, folks, but it’s run by righties. Who knew?
He has a long term goal that will destroy “Our Canada” (though, bless him, he probably thinks he’s helping) and has been trying to look fluffy and harmless since he went to Ottawa.
He needs lots of expensive, cunning help like Nigel Wright to do that.
His judgment is wrong on just about everything that matters. All that the two trade deals he’s working on will do is tie Canada up in punitive legal wars with profit-hungry foreign and domestic corporations for a very, very long time.
We do not have 2 years to get rid of him. Maude Barlow and many others I respect agree. I’m tired of this (self-evident to me) problem being ignored by complacent Canadians who, frankly, deserve what we’re gonna get.
He needs to be gone. Now.
