October, 2013:

How not to show your appreciation of and trust in your “base”…

Dear fellow Conservative: We really, really want your money and support. But please, please, just STFU.

If you are approached by anyone resembling a reporter, blogger, Liberal, New Democrat, Green, environmentalist, Public Servant, First Nation member, telecom industry employee, scientist or Maude Barlow, please run away screaming, hands over ears, and yelling “LALALALALALA!” as loudly as possible. One of our keen, young comm staffers will intervene.

Thank-you,

Steve

Harper.

There needs to be a discussion on whether he should resign.

It’s that simple.

Reactions of selected Canadian politicos…

…upon hearing of Alice Munro winning the Nobel Prize for Literature

Pauline Marois – “The Parti Québécois does not recognise this award because her writings are clearly counter to our Charter of Values. And I’m told that she doesn’t speak french”.

Stephen Harper – “Because of my extensive literary experience gained while writing my book – and thus created thousands of Canadian jobs in bookstores from coast to coast in this great conservative land, Ms. Munro has consulted me on several occasions to run ideas by me, or just to chat, brilliant author to brilliant author.”

John Baird – “Ms. Munro would have won this award years ago if it were not for Justin Trudeau and his plan to sell pot to Canadian children!”

Mike Duffy – “Hey! There’s a chunk of cash that goes with that, right? I wonder if she could float me a few thou’…”

Peter MacKay – “I will fly her to Sweden myself in one of those spiffy new fighter jets. Oh. Wait….”

Pierre Polievere – “This award is yet another example of the success of Canada’s Economic Action Plan, brought to you by Canada’s strong, stable Conservative government and our distinguished leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper; who, incidentally I have heard will be on the Nobel short list next year.”

Vic Toews – “I knew about this long ago.”

Tim Hudak – “Alice who? Does her son play for the Leafs.”

Rob Ford – “There’s no video. How can I comment on something that doesn’t exist? You’re from the Star, aren’t you?”

The Ontario Catholic School Board supporters had an email campaign, I guess…

Update- so here’s some proof of an organised campaign.

——————–
So. There is this website that the Ontario Liberals have set up called “Common Ground” that is designed to elicit comments from Ontarians on new policy directions. This is not a bad idea. But good ideas can be hijacked by special interests who would clearly be positively or negatively affected by a certain proposed policy. Such is the case with the idea called Merging the Public and Catholic School Boards.

Anyone who has passed through this blog in the past may have wandered by a post(s) where I have derided Ontario’s two Board system as discriminatory and wasteful.  So, I checked this idea about a week ago after hearing it mentioned on CBC Radio one morning. Happily, and not unexpectedly, the positive response (you get to vote for an idea either positively or negatively) was through the roof. This idea had one of the biggest positive uptakes only a week ago and now look at what’s happened.

I’d LOVE it if someone went public with the email that surely went out to Catholic Boards, the teachers and the unions urging members to go on-line and vote against this idea whose time has come. But no matter, this government has been clear that it has no interest in changing Ontario’s wasteful and discriminatory dual board system.

There are regular lies and misrepresentations…

… and then there are Conservative Party of Canada lies and misrepresentations! And the latter category can contain some whoppers!!!

This is what has me pissed off:

Please find below a statement from the Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.

Yesterday we learned that Justin Trudeau’s Chief Financial Officer and senior Liberal advisor Chuck Rifici has plans to open a massive, medicinal marijuana operation in rural Ontario, while the Liberal Leader champions marijuana legalization. Minister Blaney issued the following statement on Justin Trudeau’s top priority:

Statement

“Under Stephen Harper’s strong leadership, Canada has added more than one million net new jobs since the recession.

“Meanwhile, with absolutely no economic policy, Justin Trudeau’s highest priority remains legalizing marijuana.”

“While the Liberals continue to push for policies that would make marijuana more accessible to children, we’ve been focused on what matters most to Canadians – the economy.

“Our plan is to create more jobs – their plan is to push pot.”

“Canadians deserve to know why Justin Trudeau wants to make it easier for children to access drugs it in their communities.”

No let’s get this straight. This is a business proposal that is being made as a direct result of legislative changes made by the CONSERVATIVE government earlier this year!

The Mayor of Smith Falls is pretty happy about the prospect of new jobs in this town that was hard hit when the Hershey’s plant closed down a few years back.

And how exactly is this going to make it easier for kids to get high? Does the Con attackbot suggest that there will be a retail outlet set up beside the local high school? Or that free samples will be given to children on class tours?

Or maybe the dear MP is against his own government’s legislation? If so, he should let his boss know.

Seriously, what are the Cons smoking? That has to be the reason why they spout such utter trash.
