Harper, The Tyrant’s Game of Deception

Star published an old letter of the Conservative and Bloc deal on working together against the Liberal government. Bloc leader Gilles Duceppe held the letter up in Parliament today.

There is nothing wrong with opposition working together. What is so wrong is the hypocrisy of Harper in trying to label the opposition coalition as traitors for dealing with the Bloc. Harper is trying to create an artificial crisis. Coalition government are normal occurrences in democracies across Europe.

Make sure none of your friend remain politically ignorant. Spare no effort on explaining and clarifying the lies being spread by Harper and the ones he is about to repeat in a few minutes, at his scheduled 7 pm speech tonight. In a futile attempt to stay in power, he plan to shutdown the government and stop governing until next year. He would do this amidst signs of economic troubles at our country’s doorstep.

In a democracy, majority rules. Only tyrants would create a crisis,  and the country be dammed, just so he can keep his grip on power.  From now on, any of my blog about Harper will have the blog tag “Harper the tyrant”.

Harper’s Next Move, Blackmailing Governor General

Harper’s supporters are now blackmailing the Governor General saying she better reject the coalition or else.

h/t The regina mom blog. Here’s a National Post report quoted on that blog.

Sputtering with rage in the Post, Michael Bliss goes so far as to demand that the Governor-General reject any no-confidence vote supported by the Bloc — and if she doesn’t, it amounts to “an abuse of vice-regal power” that raises “fundamental questions about Ms. Jean’s loyalty to the Constitution and to Canada”.

Here’s a Parliament Democracy for Dummy to counter Harper’s spin that this is undemocratic.

Each member of parliament were voted by Canadian voters. If the majority of elected MP voted non-confidence on the government, the government falls. That’s democracy at work.

Harper’s Attempt At Bankrupting The Opposition

Just as I predicted in one of my previous blog, when Harper said government should not use the economic hard times to push their ideological agenda, he is actually thinking of doing exactly just that. Harper’s demonstrated with his “fiscal update” that he intend to use the economy as an excuse to corner the opposition. I have nothing more to add to what have already been said.

Read the Canadian Press news (link to CP news article about Harper’s plan to bankrupt the opposition) and numerous informative blogs on progressivebloggers.ca on what could turn out to be a historic moment in Canadian history.

I agree with Scott’s Diatribe and what Jerad Gallinger have mentioned. I believe the Liberal and NDP should be allowed to form a coalition government. They have to include Bloc Quebecois and come up with a set number of policies they can focus and agree on for a year and go from there.

Read Peterborough Politics and Impolitical blog to see how this could play out.

We might end up having a coalition government that would work together to see us through during this hard economic times. This would be much better than a Harper’s government whose concern is not a genuine fix to the economic ills. Harper’s only concern is to constantly think of strategy to undermine the opposition on his quest for a majority government. He almost succeeded in the last election with the lowest voter turnout in Canadian history.
