cons to spend more then ndp

for the first time i could have kissed bob fife. i was just watching some ctv news between class and fife pipes up that during the CON platform release to reporters was so unorganized they couldn’t even tell reporters how much their platform would cost taxpayers. according to fife they had to scramble to add up the numbers during the press conference that no cameras were aloud to. furthermore, fife told ctv newsnet that monte solberg, the CON finance critic, who he is normally really impressed by didn’t score a high grade in his books today. continuing with the theme of disillusionment fife reported that for a party that wants to be government that they need to get there act together.

clearly this should be no surprise that the CONS don’t care about the numbers. They just want to get elected at any cost … ANY COST! goodbye surplus …. hello deficits. some of the numbers that are being thrown around of how much the CON platform will costs are about 75 billion... which is expected to be more then the ndp's platform!!!!!!!!!!!!

A must read...

Self-respect for politically engaged prisoners

In related news...

Corrections officials in Canada are concerned over the access that prisoners now have to soft-core pornography on satellite TV. Many of these prisoners are sex offenders who are undergoing treatment. One corrections officer told the National Post: "What kills me is they spend millions of dollars a year to try to rearrange these guys' brains not to be violent toward women…to not treat them like slabs of meat, then they give them these movies that degrade women." You blow it [the rehabilitation] out of the water after a couple of hours of watching this stuff."

Prisoners can now see MExcess, a channel offered by The Movie Network that features pornography after 11:30 at night. The Correctional Service of Canada is looking into whether or not prisoners should be exposed to pornographic materials.

Harper is starting to talk about his Cabinet... Such arrogance!!!!!!! He already named Laurence Cannon from Pontiac, Quebec Minister before the election!

Canadians seem to be moving towards giving the neoconservatives power. Furthermore, the conservatives seem to be moving towards a majority. The media is completely bias and they don't ask important questions. For example, Harper will scrap the Kyoto Accord, he is in favor of Bush's missile defence in space, Harper will abolish same-sex marriage which is already legal accross Canada. It's very worying to take away a right!!!!!! Health Care is another point of concern!!! A parallel system will only take away resources from the current public system... It's dangerous... Alot of people are just tired of the Liberals and dislike of some former liberals... alot of Canadians are blinded and don't want to know about the neoconservative agenda... they just want to punish the liberals. I strongly beleive that our country is founded on principles of tolerance and diversity... THIS ELECTION will be very close and each VOTE will count! The Canadian Parliament was able to continue working last May because of one vote.. And alot of liberal Members of Parliament were elected with a few votes... The division within the progressive forces (NDP, BLOC QUébecois, LIBERALS and GREENS will be fatal to them... The NDP can't stop the conservatives... We will have to get use to the word "Prime Minister Stephen Harper" for 4 to 5 years at least... ONly the liberal party can prevent the neoconservatives from taking over the country.

Religious right and the Conservative Party...

Moderate ?

“There is a dependence in the region that breeds a culture of defeatism”

An Conservative candidate from Ontario declare WAR to those who don't think like he does.. in this video dated 2005.

Stephen Harper: “west of Winnipeg the ridings the Liberals hold are dominated by people who are either recent Asian immigrants or recent migrants from eastern Canada: people who live in ghettoes and who are not integrated into western Canadian society.”

Harper and other conservatives participated in a far-right wing organization's fund-raising event …

If you want to be taken seriously you nee to use spell check, and watch your "there, their, they're". I can't take anything you have said seriously, and as a first time reader of your blog, that is a bad first impression to make.

What's wrong with talking about who might be in cabinet? That's a good thing. It's called being prepared. It's called letting the voters know what the plans for the government are.
Don't be such a boob and let the CBC scare you by twisting things around.
It's the same as when they called Harper too angry. Well guess what? Being angry about government corruption is a good thing.
What's scary is when people AREN'T angry about corruption.

The Twenty Billion Dollar Man:

Welcome to Mr. Harper, aspirant PM, the “20 Billion Dollar Man.” The thrust of his campaign was that he was a very careful policy wonk, not given to kissing babies or small talk, but a capable man, careful with details ...

Now, just one week before the election, he unveils a five year plan with a “missing” 20 billion dollar gap in it. His one economist who checked it for him, says “Oops! Left out a couple of things, but it balances if you don’t think about them”.

Some endorsement. Some check.

But so what? Harper tours Quebec offering them money for votes: lots of money. We will take it from the federal government and give it your provincial government, he says. Vote for us and we will shovel billions your way.

And Quebec voters warm up to this modern day Santa Clause in a blue suit. Heck, why not elect him as PM; just look at the goodies we will get.

Sorry, folks, but someone has to find the missing 20 billion dollars. Guess who that will be? Perhaps those lazy folk in the Maritimes (after all, Harper told the Americans back in 1997 that you folks living there had a false sense of entitlement and needed to move or do something)? Or those social programs which will have a priority second to the tax cuts designed to favour the very wealthy?

It is clear now that Harper is a follower of Bush. Harper’s economics – given his 20 billion dollar gap is just plain voodoo economics, to quote Bush Snr, and his tax cuts for the wealthy is just slavish copying of Bush Jnr.

Welcome to Bushland, Canada. A PM so smart he cannot add.

Blah blah blah George Bush blah blah blah Americans, blah blah blah. Hey Boob, didn't you get the memo? All those anti-American bigoted smears backfired on you guys.
The costing controversy you're trying to promote? Well guess what? Everyone with a brain already knows it's another non-starter, it's just another inept smear attempt by the thieves.

Yahoo from Calgary! I cannot wait for the Auditor General to get access to those Canada Post, Canadian Mint, HRDC, and the 9 billion dollar trust fund books that have been off limits for her.

It is my feeling, that there is a ton more scandals just waiting for us to learn about. yahoo!
