Pure politics, have you read any of the national headlines lately? I saw one or 12 over the last few months, like the latest.."Ignatief,not interested in calling election in 2010 " or "Liberals at lowest support in over 100 years"(Harper porogues parliament here) http://www.theprovince.com/news/Harper+postpones+Parliament+months/2392037/story.html
Harper is poroguing parliament, Harper is going to stack the senate with enough Conservatives to control the senate, if Ignatief was premier he would do the same thing, the phony indignation federal Liberals are displaying is enough to make you sick, look, don`t get me wrong, Harper,like all politicians fibbed about abolishing the senate or at least having them elected, the Liberals would do no different, anyways, what a complete federal bore, Ignatief doesn`t want an election because he knows half of his MPs would get the boot, where the hell is the opposition in Ottawa?
Look at the HST vote in Ottawa, the first and third largest populations in Canada,almost 40% of Canada`s population are against this tax and the federal Liberals had a chance to stand up for the public and they didn`t, sure Dosange and Martin in BC made a little noise but Ujal voted for it, Martin ran away from the vote, all of them sold out on mass because they were told to, as far as I`m concerned Liberals and Conservatives are the same,Useless, anyways, why not close parliament, there is nothing to do, the stimulus money is drying up, no pressing bills to get through,the Federal LIBERAL Dominated senate passed the HST in an hour, they didn`t even debate it....Hell, in Manitoba the NDP government laid out it`s reason in a long pdf why they are rejecting the HST(read the Manitoba HST rejection here)a good read http://www.gov.mb.ca/finance/pdf/hst_december_09.pdf
I can`t bring myself to vote for either party,both are devoid of thought and direction and neither party wants to stand up for the vanishing middle class, no matter who is in charge the only plan is to raise taxes and cut services or programs, I will be voting for the federal NDP or independent.I wrote in a story last week about Liberals selling out provinces one by one, well
well well, a story by Kim Pollock in the Tyee further explains how corporate Canada is hoarding money,offshoring,tax havens, huge profits leaving Canada,leaving the people, the story went on to say how 18 of 22 big industries are making tons of money,tons of money right through this permanent downturn, so when the HST gets shoved down the public`s throat all in the name of giving billions more to the corporate bastards that are hoarding money,tax loop holes,tax write offs,shell companies, all this while they actively look for slave labour overseas, the federal Liberals are bought and paid for, cons,grits, what`s the diff? (read Kim Pollock here) http://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2009/12/28/NoCorporateInvesting/
Record corporate profits while real Canadians are drowning in debt and falling backwards, where is a direction for either party, what do federal Liberals stand for? Ignatief sitting around waiting for Harper to stub his toe, that sure is one hell of a plan, meanwhile Harper is closing down parliament, here`s the deal....
Harper will open up parliament 3 days after the olympics, on March 3 he will have a throne speech, March 4 Harper will bring in a skimpy budget, Harper will drape himself in the flag and olympic gold(if we win anything), throw down his budget just daring the utterly useless Michael Ignatief to force an election(which he won`t).....The Liberals will huff and puff and vote in lock-step with Harper meanwhile slippery Jack Layton and the Bloc will vote against it....
Same old same old, sorry folks,nothing to see here,useless liberals,useless conservatives, lets just hope neither government ever gets a majority, and by the way, after this poroguement, the Governor General has now laid down a precedent, poroguement whenever you want it.
Time to give the federal NDP a chance, I don`t see Cons or Grits sticking up for workers.
