Iggy’s Complicity on Damage that Budget Bill C-9 will Certainly Bring

I can already see a BP disaster in the making with the passing of Harper’s unprecedentedly humongous budget bill that aims to sidetrack the democratic role reserved for Parliament. By putting in provision that would allow him to water down environmental assessment and sale off part of AECL and Canada post without the necessary check and balances, Harper will be able to do what he wants without scrutiny and his actions will be irreversible.

It was less stringent environmental assessment and regulation that lead to the BP disaster in U.S. Gulf coast. Now Harper’s attempt at watering down the important government role of environmental assessment could lead to another Walkerton, BP or even Nuclear concerns if we are not careful. Canada have one of the toughest nuclear regulation through CNSC. With the sale of AECL to private firms almost a certainty, we need to maintain current level of regulation not reduce them to appease private investors. Any environmental disaster brought on by this bill in the future is not only Harper’s fault but also Iggy, for intentionally letting this bill pass in the Parliament through choreographed absenteeism.

It Pays To Be A Sheep Eh Mike?

Unethical and unprofessional journalist take note. It pays to be a sheep to Harper’s Conservative. You will be rewarded with lifetime monarch like privilege. This was clearly evident as Harper announced the winners who will be entitled to a Senate seat. With a salary of about $130,000 for a part time job with extra pay for being in a committee. Pension at age 55 that is equivalent to 75% of your highest salary from the last 5 years. $20,000 travel expenses in a year which is transferable. Let the good time roll courtesy of Stephen “I will never appoint a Senator” Harper. While Harper choose to cut the opposition funding feigning fiscal prudence, he racket up the spending with the Senate appointment. One of his spin used to sell this is it would help reform the Senate. But the truth is Senate reform could not happen from within the Senate. It needs the consent of the different provinces in Canada.

With at least 10 more positions set to become available in 2009, other Con TV journalist succedding Mike have few months to prove they can outdo their predecessor in gaining Harper’s blessing for a lucrative payback.
