I would like to take a break and give the Harper government a break, but every time I turn on my television one of the members of the Conservative Cabinet are embarrassing me and all Canadians, with their going nowhere quick rhetoric. Let us take a look at some recent events and see exactly what the Harper led strong, stable , majority, Conservative government has been up to.
Prime Minister Harper has been visiting South America and Central America, trying to drum up trade agreements with countries, all good we need to have an alternative choice, or choices except that the country that he is choosing to do business with and give contracts to is known to have a bad record when it comes to human rights. Prime Minister Harper said categorically that this little thing should and will not stop Canada from trading with Honduras, because money comes first. Harper stated that this country has come far in its treatment of its people and despite United Nations reports saying the contrary about their treatment of its people, that he is confident with more money coming in that the conditions for the people of this oppressive regime will get better. It is this cavalier way of being able to push aside and put on the back burner people rights and freedoms both at home and abroad for money and glory that irks me.
If the Canadian government does not care about its people, or people in general the Mr. Harper needs to stop pretending to care. If the Conservative Party of Canada wants to follow the USA and their methods and become a capitalistic society then it should state it publicly, so everyone can see Canada and Canadians for exactly what we are, or have become. Honduras not only has a bad civil right record it has the worst record in the entire region. So now we have come full circle in terms of human rights and we have regressed to the time when all that mattered was getting the almighty buck;we have been assimilated we are now the USA put on a good diplomatic face turn a blind eye to the suffering of people and get the money and give the money over to the war effort, the new Christian Crusade.
Ms. Bev Oda is still giving public displays of having a conscience and a heart as she does television spots with Oxfam and Care bragging about the money that Canada will match that everyday Canadians had to fork over if Canada was to do anything to help the people of East Africa. I could not believe my ears or eyes that this opportunistic government would get on the tube and try to take credit for helping these people after cutting foreign aid to Africa and taking the money and giving it to South America. there seems to be no bottom to the depths that this strong, stable, Conservative, majority government is willing to sink to pretend to do, what it should be doing.
Vic Toews, Mr. Security is in my opinion a nobody trying to end his career as a person of meaning. Until Stephen Harper he has been a no one politically. Vic Toews in my opinion is a racist pig, who is only fit to be in a party as right as this one led by Prime Minister Harper. Their will be no fair treatment for anyone that is not white and not Christian or Jewish. I think he is using his portfolio to get at the Muslim race as well as the Sri Lankins. If ever there was a person in the Canadian government capable ordering the mass murders and the ethnic cleansing seen in the past by certain governments throughout the world I think Vic Toews would be the guy. He is a supremest in my opinion and hopes through his ministries scope that he can keep Canada for his bosses real Canadians and keep the boat people out and all who are like the boat people of Sri Lanka.
I listened to Prime Minister Harper give his normal inform you of nothing Canada speech and interview and was not impressed. We are secure and safe sort of was his message to Canadians after all of this border security, loss of rights and freedoms for which we were promised safety for our loss. I know I have said this before but it seems like world peace, humanitarian causes and the ending of social injustice is not on the Harper led conservative government priorities now that it has a majority government.
Markets are dropping the country is in crisis and still we are going to hold the course says the P. M. Ford is the latest to close up shop and put people out of work after years of special treatment and tax exemptions from the Canadian government. President Barack Obama calls for Americans to buy American while pretending to want free trade and expecting us to honor one-sided free trade agreements and we say how can we help you to put us in the hole like you are. I mean the government needs to promote the same thing for Canadians, buy Canadian and scrap these stupid accords that only benefit the USA.
I think that everyone but the strong, stable majority Conservative government knows that the infrastructure in this country sucks big time. People being crushed under the debris falling of underpasses and overpasses, bridges all over the country ready to collapse due to zero maintenance over 30 plus years, because there is no maintenance crew even assigned to do it on a regular basis, but this government chooses to hide reports on such matters from its population. I guess like everything else they consider this no one elses business but their own.
From every first nation band we are hearing the discontent of how they are being treated and how the promises made to them by this government are not being kept. The people’s cries of anguish are turning to cries of anger and yet the Harper led strong, stable majority government, insists that all is going well and on this issue they will again hold the course.
With more young people than ever not being able to get a higher education like going to university, because of the ever-increasing cost of tuition and the burden of having to pay back student loans, the Harper government does little if anything to help the less fortunate younger people get a higher education. I think that this is a throw back not an advancement in the educational system when a child that wants to learn is impeded solely because they have no money. I think that it is bad for the youngsters, Canada’s economy and reeks of just plain unfairness.
So here we are being drawn back in time to a not so very nice place in our history; a time when we had the rich and the poor and the poor were just workers for the rich and thought too stupid to make decisions. The poor need not be educated and if they ate or got ahead it was at the will of the rich. The Harper government is taking us back to a time and place where racial, religious and cultural intolerance was acceptable. This was also a time of corruption in government and secrecy was the norm. The Harper Government seems to flourish in the muck and mire of dirty politics and has dragged the good name and world opinion fo Canadians and Canada into the cess pool along with them.
I will ask it over and over again what will it take for us as Canadians to stand up to this tyrant and demand that he and his government not trade with any country that mistreat their people? What will it take for Canadians to demand that this Harper government see that every Canadian young person can afford to go to university and be the best that they can be? What will it take for Canadians to say enough Mr. Harper we are tired of all of you lies and secrecy? What will it take for Canadians to stand up and be counted and to start demanding of this Harper led strong, majority, stable Conservative government to put the state of its people and the people of the world, ahead of war and money, power and glory by taking footsteps forward in time to where we are once again a Canada where all Canadians can feel safe, respected and proud to be Canadians?
Has anyone out there heard what is up with the Sri Lankans rotting in our jails, or for that matter does anyone out their give a damn? The matter seems to have dropped for us generous, open society as most things do after ten minutes.
