What Crisis?

There’s so much feigned fury being displayed by all our political leaders, and so much hand-wringing by so many “ordinary” citizens over the shenanigans in Ottawa that foreigners must think that Canada has suddenly turned into one of those hapless failed states where the military is about to oust the whole sorry crew that imagine themselves as leaders of this great Dominion.

Verily a Cabal of Quebeckers against a lone Ontarian

The plot by the Liberal Party under Stephane Dion, the Bloc Quebecois under Gilles Duceppe and the New Democratic Party under Jack Layton TO DFEAT THE Conservative government of Stephen Harper has proven to Canadians that their first loyalty is NOT to CANADA, but to their personal advancement and that alone. Because today these three parties have made it abundantly clear that it was the removal of political subsidy by the Conservative government that made them very angry enough to unite and plot to bring down the Conservative government, everything else took a second place to the loss of their subsidy.

Toronto Maple Leafs Win Stanley Cup

imageSent in by a reader….

Canada was stunned Monday when it was announced that The Stanley Cup will be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly as early as December 6th. The cup will be stripped from from 2008 playoff champions the Detroit Red Wings and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn’t even make the playoffs.

How is this possible, Canadians ask? Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with eastern conference semi-finalists the Montreal Canadians, and conference quarter finalists the Ottawa Senators, now outnumbering the Red Wings. According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson “the Red Wings have lost the confidence of the league and should hand the cup over immediately to our coalition”.

We thank you Governor General

After consulting with the best constitutional experts and no doubt receiving an avalanche of email by concerned Canadians over the naive, hastily conceived and potentially disastrous coalition government of Liberals, NDP and the Bloc Governor General Michaelle Jean followed the Prime Minister’s advice and made a decision that may well have saved this nation.

Do we really want ‘banana republic"status?

Just when Canadians thought they were through yet another federal election and had democratically elected the government of their choice an irresponsible and power mad opposition (a good description would be Junta) come up with a suprise Christmas present to oust the Conservatives and undemocratically seize power.

How did it happen and what now?

As the magnitude of the current crisis in Ottawa continues to sink in with Canadians two main questions must be answered. How is it that a democratically elected Prime Minister and government given a significant increase in seats (127 to 143) less than two months after being voted in by the people could be replaced with an unelected, ill-conceived and potentially disastrous coalition headed up by Stephen Dion the man rejected by the Canadian people, his own province and his own party? Astonishing is far to weak a word to describe this development.

WAKE UP PEOPLE OF CANADA!  DEMOCRACY, AS WE NEW IT, DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE.

Do not be naïve enough to still believe that our elected representatives actually represent the will of the people.  This latest political fiasco is nothing more than a smoke screen, a shell game, to cover up what is really going on in Ottawa, or maybe what is not going on, and it’s not in your or my best interests.

Not my country anymore

My country is no longer mine.  A political party that I can’t even vote for HOLDS THE BALANCE OF POWER for my country. A political party that does not want to be in my country HOLDS THE BALANCE OF POWER.

I’m ashamed of the power mongering coalition politicians

Yes, this is truly sad that intelligent people cannot talk and solve and resolve our national problems collaboratively.  The bottom line is… as a Canadian…I’m ashamed of the power mongering coalition politicians.  Don’t they realize that this is a tough time for all Canadians and they are acting like a pack of coyotes….making things more difficult for all Canadians in today’s fragile environment.  Shame on them.  Canadians will see through this.

Please put the country first

Dear Governor General,

I urge you to read the following newspaper articles before making any decisions in our current governmental crisis.  It is nothing less than the future of our great nation that is at stake.  Please put the country first.

Coup -from an inside/outside perspective

I’m from Ottawa but work and live in Thailand. The majority of Thai’s were embarrassed by this past week’s antics by those seeking to overthrow the Thai Prime Minister. The protesters goal was to remove the prime minister with strong-arm tactics (taking over airports).

A disgraceful and cowardly action

Mr. Prime Minister,

The recent push for a coalition government by the NDP, Liberals and Bloc to topple the rightfully and democratically elected conservative government, is both disgraceful and cowardly. The leaders of the three parties responsible for this attempted coup have no honor and don’t understand the meaning of the words; duty, honor, loyalty, service, and respect.

Improving Parliament

Canada could sure use a minister of defence with General Rick Hillier’s expertise.  But under our current system of governance, Stephen Harper must pick his defence minister from the ranks of elected MPs even if none of them is qualified for the position.

Unfair family law reform

What Ontario Attorney-General Chris Bentley proposes is to give the courts the right to impose a restraining order which “will be accessible in an emergency from a family judge without the other party being there.” The court then has the further right to “prosecute restraining-order breaches under the Criminal Code.” Finally: “Anyone applying for custody or access to a child will be required to complete a sworn statement, including how he or she proposes to care for the child.”

Dear Honourable members:

The election was just carried out and the people have made their choice. This is no time to blow another 300+ million on an unnecessary election, are you crazy?

November Blues

NOVEMBER CHILL

October’s blushing days are gone
November’s misting all around
the trees take on a wintry pallor
as their leaves wither on the
ground

Liberal NDP Merger

A coalition of the Liberals and NDP with tacit support of the Bloc just hit the news.It will retread Broadbent and Cretien as power brokers who will spoon feed Ignatief a daily dish of liberal-socialism to Canadians. Why is the Canadian Press among other venues so delighted.

This will be a disaster. We need a strong Conservative government that will concentrate on fiscal responsibility and personal responsibility of all Canadians to reject liberal socialism and build a nation that will uphold personal integrity and private enterprise.
