Ontario's McGuinty brushes off federal Tory endorsement for Hudak
Ontario Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty says he won't be pushed around when he's dealing
 with the federal government and that's why a federal Tory minister didn't pick him as his preferred premier candidate.

Foreign Affairs Minister Baird demands gold on new business cards
John Baird has set a new gold standard for business cards.
The Conservative foreign affairs minister demanded and got gold embossing
on his business cards shortly after being shuffled into the portfolio last May,
contrary to government rules.

The conservatism I was raised with and have supported from my first ballot in the 1958 Diefenbaker sweep is one articulated by Edmund Burke at the time and in response to the French Revolution. "A disposition to preserve, and an ability to improve, taken together, would be my standard of a statesman."

Change, yes - but not rushed into. Rather than this go forward with the approach, "progress, with care", a saying of Mr. Diefenbaker's passed on by someone who heard it from him to me..

Something called a "Google Alert" can be set us which send you everything related to what you specify.  "Canadian Wheat Board" is one of mine.

Without the "Alert", in that none of the main stream media have mentioned it, I'd be as unknowing of the move criticized below as I'll bet 99.99% of Canadians. A move predicated on future action. Action not based on "progress with care'' and most certainly not "a propensity to preserve",

The action taken and others mentioned in negative terms, you may well agree with. 

As always, if you are of a mind, criticize what has been written.

In that I am at liberty to do so, and so do, you most certainly are as well.


Subject: F.Y.I.: Harper Government removes Advance Payments Program role from Canadian Wheat Board.

Intent on ignoring existing law and the expressed views of affected farmers the "Harper Government",  September 29th, 2011, without prior consultation with the Canadian Wheat Board or ensuring future positions for employees currently engaged its administration, removed its role of administering the Advance Payments Program for Western Wheat and barley producers.

Ritz statement " ' Our Government is taking clear and concise action so that wheat, durum, and barley farmers have access to the Advance Payments Program without disruption. ' ", Harper Government Ensuring Grain Farmers' Access to Advance Payments Program , limiting Second Reading debate on, C-10, the Safe Streets and Communities Act, and behind closed doors after forcing committees into in camera hearings, using their majority to ensure motions to resume studies or finalize reports from the last Parliament "disappeared" for no public reason , . , are consistent

That while "There's no need for bare-knuckle politics. No cause to savage opponents. No reason to mangle constitutional principles and basic norms of good government.", , in that their majorities in the House of Commons and Senate  ensures they will prevail over Parliamentary and public disagreement however strong, the Harper Government's preference is to operate in these ways.

Clearly shifting the Advance Payments Program for Western Wheat and barley from the Canadian Wheat Board before legislation is introduced (let alone made law ) is a fiat action based on their ideological decision that the "Wheat Board monopoly to end in 2012".  This without having made any public determination of  the manner in which the Wheat Board will be reshaped to fulfill Ritz' statement that "At the end of the day, certainly, there's a role for the wheat board to play. We'll have to work out just what exactly what that is." , .

Subject: majority government and thinking MPs

Joe--this thought just came to me.  If more MPs like Trost and Vellacott stood for what their constituents want rather than what the head dictator wants we would have more of a democracy.  A majority government doesn't want to fall by firing those MPs who don't agree with them so now is the chance for those we elected to represent us and not Harper.  It is up to us and our elected MP to do the right thing and we may get our country back?

Question for those economic wizards: Why are countries like Switzerland, Norway, Sweden,not included in the G20?
These countries seem to have an excellent, stable, peaceful standard of living, and do not seem to be much affected by the present global economic crisis.
Is the present global economic system, based on profit and greed, the only one that would work for human beings? Why would any proposed system that would curtail greed and excessive profits, be immediately dismissed as invalid?  
The Creator gave human beings every thing they need to live well on planet earth.
Why have we made it so complicated to live -- or die?

So the government will spend $90,000 a day to find ways to save money! I
would suggest they start with John Baird. He should be read the riot act! To
demand gold embossed cards and removing what he wants deserves reproach! At
this Tate he is Canada's Momar Gadafi, in my opinion.

This attitude tells me he does not deserve to be in government and further
makes me believe his boss too has gone "bonkers"!

Subject: Insanity will get us all killed

Wasn't it Canada that originally supplied India and Pakistan with nuclear technology in the form of CANDU reactors? 
Will our military be joining the US in their insane wars in Pakistan and eventually China?  Whatever Washington says it is gospel and we have already seen that Canada will follow blindly(or as in the case of Libya lead the killing).  Pakistan is right, next to israel(which controls the US) the US is the biggest terrorist group on the planet.  Is there anyone who can stop this destruction?

October 01, 2011
It's awfully hard for the world's greatest power to admit its high-tech military forces are being beaten in Afghanistan by a bunch of lightly-armed mountain tribesmen.
But that's what's happening. Washington is blaming everyone else for the bloody fiasco in Afghanistan, the "Graveyard of Empires." Right now, the chief whipping boy for US fury is Pakistan, still officially called a " strategic US ally."

Last week, outgoing US chief of staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, accused Pakistan's intelligence agency, ISI, of being behind recent high profile attacks against US targets in Afghanistan staged by the Haqqani network, one of Taliban's coalition fighting foreign occupation. The Pentagon accused the Haqqani network of being "a virtual arm" of ISI. Pakistan strongly denied US charges.

The US is reacting with blind rage rather than careful thought. The example of the Soviet 1989 defeat in Afghanistan increasingly haunts Washington.

Ironically, as I saw myself in the 1980's, the US created the Haqqani network, arming and funding it these "freedom fighters."

One of the US Senate's dimmest members, influential Republican Lindsay Graham, threatens US attacks on Pakistan "to defend US troops" from "terrorism."

That's pretty rich. The US invades a country, brands any who resist as "terrorists," then must invade Pakistan to "protect" its invading troops. Meanwhile, the US is paying bankrupt Pakistan $7.5 billion over five years to sustain the war in Afghanistan.

Dear Provincial Conservatives, New Democrats and Liberals.

Please check this email sent to the Prime Minister.

He has ignored my many previous emails on this topic so i am asking you to be aware of this.

On this video you will see a US Department of Defence historian, an existing employee, show that we have been deceived.

Please ask the PM to send this video to the RCMP and CSIS.

And ask the PM to report the results to Parliament and the provinces.

Subject: Peace Arch News - We are not Clifford Olson


The execution of Troy Davis in Georgia last week is a morality play, an act that cannot be undone.

The death penalty is simply morally wrong; it is practised by no civilized society.

Last week, too, a convicted child murderer and serial killer learned that he will die of cancer. He has been in prison for all of that time since his conviction and showed no apparent remorse.

We did not reduce ourselves to the moral state of Clifford Olson by taking his life, by executing him, or by showing no remorse and by trying to justify the death penalty. Instead, we mourn the loss and unthinkable pain felt by the families of his victims.

We are Troy Davis; we are Mark McPhail; we are not Clifford Olson.

SUPPORT Bill C-304 - An Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act (protecting freedom)

[Editor's Note: It's been a long, tough row to hoe for myself and others afflicted by this draconian Sec. 13 legislation that was surreptitiously inserted into Canadian law back in the hectic days following the aftermath of September 11, 2001.

This specious piece of anti-free speech legislation has brought more unnecessary woe, misery and expense to internet writers and publishers than any other in Canadian history and has most likely cost the Canadian taxpayer millions in needless pseudo-litigation brought on by the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CRHC) and its attendant Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) since its sly passing in the dark, wee hours of December, 2001.

I became a victim of this senseless, Stalinist legislation back in 2007 when the League for Human Rights of B'nai Brith Canada, a branch of the powerful, global organization known as B'nai Brith International (the #1 Zionist Jew lobby group in the world) decided that they didn't like me and my website criticizing their long range plans to destroy the Palestinian people and steal what little remained of their territory in the Middle East.
