One year on…

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

One year ago today, a minority of Canadians elected a Harper majority government.

So, what have I learned?

  • I learned that growing pot is a worse crime than being a pedophile.
  • That it’s OK to force people to register a car, but an affront to democracy to do so for a gun.
  • That the government keeps two sets of books when it comes to reveling the true costs of expensive projects… like fighter jets, for example.
  • That OJ is a lot more expensive than I would have thought possible.
  • That Harper did NOT major in Canadian history.
  • That Vic Toews want to know everything about us!
  • That, thanks to omnibus legislation, Parliament has become impotent.
  • That conflict of interest rules don’t apply to Cabinet Ministers.
  • That planned cuts to seniors’ pensions are not worthy of mentioning during an election campaign.
  • Nor are cuts to health-care funding .
  • That environmental controls for energy projects aren’t really that important.
  • That continuing to spend millions on royal visits is an appropriate use of taxpayers dollars.
  • That environmental charities ‘launder’ foreign funds.
  • That it’s OK to diss your country, forsake your citizenship, but be welcomed back with open arms.
  • That the Grits better do something about selling themselves as a real alternative. And that does NOT mean elected Bob Rae as leader!
  • That Jack Layton was a special man.
  • Jason Kenney, Tony Clement, Vic Toews, Pierre Polievre, John Baird, Jim Flaherty and Stephen Harper are not.
  • And possibly (jury still out) that election fraud is only election fraud if it implicates one of the other parties – and not the CPC.
