Throne speech – “Stop Harper”
Updated: Presser from Brigitte Marcelle:
“Harper’s agenda is disastrous for this country and for my generation,” Brigette Marcelle says. “We have to stop him from wasting billions on fighter jets, military bases, and corporate tax cuts while cutting social programs and destroying the climate. Most people in this country know what we need are green jobs, better medicare, and a healthy environment for future generations.”
“Contrary to Harper’s rhetoric, Conservative values are not in fact Canadian values. How could they be when 3 out of 4 eligible voters didn’t even give their support to the Conservatives? But we will only be able to stop Harper’s agenda if people of all ages and from all walks of life engage in creative actions and civil disobediance,” she says.
“This country needs a Canadian version of an Arab Spring, a flowering of popular movements that demonstrate that real power to change things lies not with Harper but in the hands of the people, when we act together in our streets, neighbourhoods and workplaces.”
Trashy agrees. And I don’t give a crap if it turns out that one union or movement or another put her up to it. It took guts and she says what many of we progressives believe. We will take back our country.
Kid has guts.
Not a job anymore, but guts.
Hee-hee… way to steal Harper’s thunder…
Though I know I’m going to get some comments here or on Facebook haughtily declaring “How dare you condone such actions! She violated the trust of her employers!”
Big f***ing deal. w.e. It’s not like the Cons have shown any class in the Senate or the HoC!
And I say to them – if given the opportunity – I would have considered doing the same type of thing. That sign represents what I am going to my damnedest to accomplish over the next 4 years – stopping Harper.
Would love to hire someone like that.
