Mr. Harper my name is Arche Mdis and I am from Montreal Quebec. I was a little concerned writing this letter because bad things keep happening to people who disagree with you publicly and do not support you blindly. I guess I just need to know why you are doing to the country what you are doing to it. I know you love America we saw that when you betrayed our forest industry and Canadian workers and settled the soft wood lumber dispute for less than the world court awarded us. You and your party have traded our reputation as a peace maker, a voice of reason and a country that could be trusted to do the right thing and brought us down to the status of a warrior nation and clone of the United States.
Why sir do you wish to punish the poor and the less fortunate than yourself? Every law you pass is against the poor. You cut budgets to everything decent and helpful and have even set out to destroy our returning veterans. You pose with the native people of this country, dancing and taking pictures with them, while behind the scenes you and your party work hard to deny them what is theirs. The long gun registry, the firing of all who stand against you, your total disregard for law and all I can think to ask you sir is why?
You are trying to stop the people of Canada from helping certain refugees and fighting to force non Canadian solutions to humanitarian problems down our throat. You and your party have wrapped this all up in a blanket of fear mongering designed to make us fear our Muslim neighbours and I think that you and your party need to be stopped by way of a vote of non confidence. If you continue along the path you have chosen that is destroying Canada, I think your picture should not be installed in the hall of the Prime Ministers and as in old times your name should be stricken from all documents and from all public spaces. There should be no memory of your having led this country to the most undemocratic, insensitive, non Canadian time of this country’s history.
Did you ever fight in a war, or are you one of those behind the desk generals like ex-president Bush. It is not too late for you though, you could start acting like a true Christian who believes in God; God’s commandments and God’s promises. It is not too late to find the compassion you pretend to have and become a servant of the people, or you can remain the miserable excuse for a person that you are proving yourself to be and have an identical legacy to your buddy ex-President Bush. Maybe you can have an interview with David Frost like Nixon did? How does it feel to know that the Americans went out of their way to see that you did not get any support for your bid to get that United Nations security seat? You have been used sir by your friends to the south; they sense your political usefulness coming to an end and are leaving you to the mercy of your people.
What kind of people have you made ministers in your cabinet? I have watched their behaviour on CPAC. Live performances daily on how to interrupt and thwart the law and due process both in Question Period and in committee, by your MP’s. These ministers of your’s laugh at democracy and the Canadian people. They are shameless and look quite childish. Is having power affected you and your party so much? I was at a rally for the Conservative Party. It was at a golf course on the Island of Montreal just before a federal election. MNA‘s and the hopefuls were there and it was a nice day for golf. After the game while having cocktails my partner and I sat and chatted with some of the younger members of your party. They discussed your party’s plans to do nothing about acid rain and global warming. They said that by time the problem was life threatening they would be long gone, dead and buried, so why should they suffer the financial losses now that a clean air and water bill and laws would cause. Let the children of tomorrow worry about it, seemed to be the general attitude around the table.
I guess our shocked silence was taken for agreement and the wine they were drinking started to loosen their tongues, because next they outlined your party’s strategy to deal with the poor and needy of this country. Welfare people were the scourge of the country and did not deserve a vote. They did not contribute and should have the rights of a person in jail. I told them that my mother was on welfare and raised her children alone and that sometimes people end up on welfare due to no fault of their own, but fault, or not they were still Canadians.
It was then that they knew we were not of the same conservative mind-set as them and moved to distance themselves from us, but it was too late and it was the last time I heard the truth from any Conservative member of your party. I did send a letter to Jack and Michael and told them what I thought of them as well. Maybe I will give each of you a copy of each others letters and see what the truth does to politics; we know what lies do. Have a great day and thanks for letting me vent.
