The Canadian Federal Court has confirmed that the country’s 2011 federal election, which led to the victory of Stephen Harper’s government, was fraudulent.
This is appalling. Doesn’t the erosion of our democracy matter anymore?
Why isn’t this in the news instead of the awful Senate and Rob Ford?
Well, we have precedent now. Three senators have just been ousted on the basis of wrong doing.
I’m all in favour of punishing wrong doers.
I suggest it’s time the Canadian people suspend Stephen Harper without pay for the duration on the basis of either taking part in (Read more…)
Poor Stephen Harper.
It’s just days since he pulled Peterborough MP Dean Del Mastro out of the dog house and appointed him Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Northern Economic Development and the development agencies for Southern and Northern Ontario.
Now the Commissioner of Canada Elections, Mr. Yves Côté, has laid four charges under the Canada Elections Act against Del Mastro.
Parliamentary secretaries are supposed to be understudies to cabinet ministers.

At the time of his ruling, the judge called these delaying tactics “trench warfare.”

This week, pollster Nik Nanos revealed that 51.5% of Canadian voters would not consider voting for the Conservative party, compared to 36.4% only seven months ago.
I don’t play the national pastime – election prediction – so I won’t speculate about if or how this poll will translate on the ground. Whether we’ll have to wait until 2015 to get rid of this corrupt, fraudulent, anti-democracy, anti-human, anti-labour, anti-environment, corporate government – and whether Canadian voters will be hoodwinked by another party with almost identical policies but a friendlier face (and famous last name) – remains to be (Read more…)
