Subject: Despite booming economy, Paul Martin lost the election
Ms Kate Malloy
Editor, The Hill Times, Ottawa
Despite booming economy, Paul
Martin lost the election
I am writing with reference to Opinion: "Economy trumps all,
whatever that means," Susan Riley (Nov. 25).
Susan Riley seems to have forgotten the recent history when she writes:
"The economy will trump every other issue, as it almost always does.
If things are going well -- losts of jobs, rising wages -- Stephen Harper
could be re-elected." She may be reminded that when former Prime
Minister Paul Martin assumed office, the economy was booing and the
budget was in surplus and yet he went down in a crushing defeat. Why?
Because the Liberal sponsorship scandal under his watch as the Finance
Minister and people didn't buy his contention that he was not aware as
Finance Minister that Prime Minister Jean Chretien was spending millions
of dollars in the name of national unity.
Today, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's assertion that he didn't know that
his chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote a cheque of $90,000 to repay
Senator Mike Duffy's alleged overspending of public funds has an uncanny
resemblance with Mr. Martin's assertion and the great majority of voters
are not buying it. As such, Mr. Harper is likely to face the fate of Mr.
Martin come next election. Voters do care about scandals in the
It is said that coming events cast their shadows before them and massive
Liberal victories in Toronto and Montreal byelections may be the
harbinger of the future. In the next election, Liberal leader Justin
Trudeau is likely to sweep Canada's two most populous provinces of
Ontario and Quebec. We will be back to the future -- to 1993 -- when
former Prime Minister Jean Chretien won a landslide victory.

Subject: Couple of things
One....I do not agree that all politicians are the same,  not worthy
of a vote.
Two....I worked with people  who were serving time in The Peace
River Correctional Institute. I was a voluntteer.
Always  70%    Native or underprivileged. Were they
the  worst of the worst,  no,   not  
ever.   Just picked on by our elitist part of
society.     They all thought well of me because I
treated them like human beings.  Took them to my house for
suppers,  Took native ladies in for  few days so the
could  go out to visit their husbands or  sons.  These
were gentle people  when I  got to know them.  I
tracked  down the reason why some of them were incarcerated I
arranged to get them a lawyer when I knew they had been railroaded by our
elitists.    Never lost a case .  Harper is a elitist
,so vote for  him.   Kill two birds  with one
stone.    Help Harper   and tramp on the down

The bill that would save
Andrew Coyne
Published: November 29, 2013, 7:07 pm
Two, this does not by any means exhaust the list of reforms, large and
small, our damaged parliamentary democracy requires, from electing
committee chairs to changing the electoral system. But it is the key to
all the others: until we crack the leaders' lock on power, nothing
else will flow. (Witness the all-party beat-up on MP Mark Warawa this
spring, merely for asking to speak without clearance.) Indeed, the
mere act of MPs passing such a bill, over the certain opposition of their
leaders, would be something of a revolution in itself.... (emphasis
added)[read more at link below]
