Will There or Will There Not Be an Election This Fall? Who Would Want It, If Anyone At All?

Tweet

Both EKOS and the usually Harpercon friendly Ipsos-Reid polls have Harpercon numbers slipping and those of the Liberals rising somewhat bringing them to a near tie with, of course, the Harpercons  hanging on to a slight advantage.  If Steve was really planning to get an election off the ground this fall, his plans . . . → Read More: Will There or Will There Not Be an Election This Fall?

Harpocracy Taken Down a Notch!!

Tweet

This is more than happy news.  This is relief! Many of us, including your’s truly, were starting to lose faith in Speaker Milliken for all the time he took. Not to mention, we believed that he would never risk his career to vote against the Harpercon regime.

Now,  Milliken has just reminded all . . . → Read More: Harpocracy Taken Down a Notch!!

Why an Election Must Happen Sooner, Rather Than Later

Tweet

After hearing about that miserable budget and the latest developments on investigation torturegate, and of course, the ongoing blunders of Jason Kenney and other of St-Stevie’s Harpercon flunkies.  I have rethought my position since I posted To Call or Not To Call an Election This Spring.

Here We Go Again! Stevie Doing What He Does Best: Play Divide and Conquer

Tweet

Oh hell, here we go again. In my earlier post, I had mentioned that Duceppe was elsewhere giving speeches and Iggy said he wasn’t invited to a pre budget release meeting and that only Jack Layton would be in attendance. Remember, he was the one who did not vote with the January 2009 . . . → Read More: Here We Go Again! Stevie Doing What He Does Best: Play Divide and Conquer

Not Only C.R.U.S.H. Stevie’s Numbers, but Also Push for the Coalition: This Time With Feeling

Tweet

I read Thwap’s (Thwap’s Schoolyard)  post today regarding his distaste for Iggy and the Liberals.  He leaves the impression that the Stevie and Iggy aren’t that much different as he refers to Iggy as ‘Harper-lite’, particularly if he becomes prime-minister as well as predicting that a minority would be the best they can . . . → Read More: Not Only C.R.U.S.H.

The Game Has Changed…Canada is Ready For a Coalition

Tweet

I have always thought that an outright merger between the Liberals and The N.D.P. with perhaps the Greens (although, if one looks carefully, they’re not really left of center)  would be what’s best.

I certainly understand Dylan’s concerns (Right of Center Ice) about a coalition government being a bad idea based largely in . . . → Read More: The Game Has Changed…Canada is Ready For a Coalition

Harpercon Cheerleaders Are Too Busy Being Hateful to Even Wish Jack Layton a Speedy Recovery

Tweet

And to think we’re considering scrapping gun control in Canada all together. These people would shoot their own grandmothers just to sell the family jewels. YIKES!! Talk about the decline of society! Talk about Canadians becoming American Rednecks.

Jack Layton has announced that he has prostate cancer but will remain as leader of . . . → Read More: Harpercon Cheerleaders Are Too Busy Being Hateful to Even Wish Jack Layton a Speedy Recovery

Pre-Game Action Before Your Olympics, Perhaps?

Tweet

Yes, nice fun ReformaTory Games only Stevie can play, although, thus far he hasn’t been successful, has he?

Haiti became the would be perfect crisis for him but, obviously never raised his numbers, in fact, according to most polls as of late, Stevie’s Harpercon numbers continue on that downhill spiral.

The anti-prorogation rallies . . . → Read More: Pre-Game Action Before Your Olympics, Perhaps?

Montreal Event a Success!

Tweet

Indeed it was! In spite of the early hour and the cold, we did have a decent turn out somewhere between 700 -1000 folks (a few hundred joined in later at end venue), according to what I was told.  There were merchants and passersby offering support. The police didn’t even get out of . . . → Read More: Montreal Event a Success!

Jack Layton Wrote Me Back!

Tweet

Well, at least someone with access to be able to compose emails from his account anyway.  It may even be (probably) a  mass mailing responding to those who wrote to him. But, it’s something; some semblance to make us feel better:

Here goes the email response:

Well, It’s a Start! See What Can Be Done When We Make the Effort?

Tweet

Well, it appears that social media is really giving a run for the money against the corporatist media.

It’s about time!  For openers, the Facebook group, Canadians against the Proroguing of Parliament , is now nearing 50, 000 members and growing. There are other such Facebook groups, whose memberships are also growing.

A Letter I wrote To My Riding MP

ATT: Irwin Cotler Member of Parliament for Mont-Royal Liberal Party of Canada

Hello,

I think most Canadians realize that the prorogation on the part of PM Stephen Harper is more sinister than last year’s. All one has to do is to read the news and the columnists. Globe & Mail‘s John Ibbitson calls . . . → Read More: A Letter I wrote To My Riding MP
