The Disaffected Lib: Well, They Do Have It Coming

Posted January 26, 2015 by The Mound of Sound

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of Australia.  A new report claims that the ‘land down unda’ will be hit harder by climate change impacts than the rest of the world.

It’s a real ‘out of the frying pan and into the fire’ predicament.  Most of the country is already miserably hot.  Adding another 5.1 degrees Celsius by 2090 would be turning your oven up from ‘roast’ to ‘broil.’

Good thing Aussie prime minister Tony Abbott, the King of Coal, and our own Stephen Harper are BFFs.  At some point Abbott might need Steve’s help to (Read more…)

CSR de-fanged?

Posted January 6, 2015 by JR

Peter Foster: Conservatives de-fang Canada’s CSR policy

The Harper government’s recent announcement of an “enhanced” CSR strategy for mining … is designed to reduce irresponsible interference, not facilitate it.

…  it in fact represents a further turning away from the previous Liberal government’s attempt to accommodate and promote ENGO activism.

… The “enhanced” Conservative strategy … much less of a potential corporate burden since radical ENGOs are not calling the shots. The Harper government has stopped funding anti-mining ENGOs such as Kairos, which had been front and centre in pushing the CSR Trojan Horse into the corporate boardroom. …

It’s good to see that something’s being done to cut the legs out from under the ENGO (Extremist NGO) shakedown artists and put the hitherto bogus CSR concept to good use for once.

Does anyone doubt an early election now?

Posted January 5, 2015 by trashee

First, this morning, with the ouster of the Burglar of National Defense, Harper was clearly wiping the table of any “nuisance” that may dog him during the campaign. Now, it comes to light that Harper will deign to meet the Premier of Canada’s largest province before the junior hockey game tonight; thus deflecting criticism that […]

OK, cupboard

Posted December 19, 2014 by Boris

Well, we had to know that at some point the man would have to account for his cupboardliness in the face of danger. The excuses, sorry, reasons are apparently as follows.

1. His MPs hustled him away and stashed him with the mops and things.
2. The RCM…

NEB: Rubber-stamping pipelines and boasting about it

Posted December 10, 2014 by Boris

Hostile to the public interest. Conservative Party agent. Oil sector agent. In league with Satan. Pick your description, either the formerly respectable National Energy Board, which you pay for, will not help you understand and possibly object to an oi…

Talking tough

Posted November 19, 2014 by Boris

The cupboardly man is talking tough regarding two regions of the world with the potential to blow-up. Ukraine-Russia and Israel-Palestine are flirting with major war and insurrection.

Our PM may think it is low risk to mouth-off to Putin or declare so…

Soft targets and red herrings

Posted November 17, 2014 by Boris

The mentally questionable individual who posed as a decorated jumper from the RCR is a soft target and irrelevant. The scorn presently being heaped on him from military circles is unsurprising, but Mr. Gervais is a red herring. Stephen Harper has worn …

Posted November 16, 2014 by Boris

G20 Summit lead-up, 2020

The world was not shocked today when the remaining G20 countries declined to extend meeting invitations to Canada and Australia over their stance on climate change. The intransigent position on fossil fuels taken by the nation…
