Harper government's mean streak rears head
 
If the Harper government has an Achilles heel, it has to be a propensity - on display yet again this week
- to be nasty, to repeatedly do what is politically expedient rather than what's correct.

New KBR Document Confirms FEMA Camps Soon to be Activated Nationwide

Subject: "Full speed ahead for wheat board bill"

Dear Editor,

The Senate's constitutional role is no more. Closure without substantive analysis of the effects of passing legislation is in the process of replacing the provision of sober second thought.

"Full speed ahead" being the marching orders, there will be no substantive analysis of Bills of far reaching consequence. Thoughts of the possibility of improvement through amendments, let alone such actions being considered and acted upon, simply do not exist.

August 26, 2010 on the runway at Tuktoyaktuk Harper said, "I think I make the rules." Having majorities in both the Commons and the Senate it is no longer "I think" but rather "I make."

Opposition from other political parties are ineffective. What is yet to be determined is what impact there may be from a new force in our lives, social net working. Campaigns are under weigh by both those opposing the destruction of the Canadian Wheat board by the Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act and the Ending the Long-gun Registry Act. Senators are receiving  tens of thousands of e-mails from irate citizens concerned about the future when precedents and judgement are ignored and this statement made by Agricultural Minister Ritz "Let me be clear, we will never reconsider" is viewed as an unacceptable norm.

Will Canada's "New Government", the "Harper Government" respond positively to pressure from the citizenry or ignore it?

Something providing "interesting times" to follow as year 2011 draws to a close.

Yours truly
