    Bobby is of genius ! Don’t mess with Bob Rae !

  3. When times are tough is indicative of a dictatorial government to slash all the social programs as a priority and this group of Harper Conservatives in Ottawa is no exception.
    Recently an article that appeared in an American news release stated that if seven, yes seven “only” fighter jet were cut from the Defence Budget enough money would be saved to finance the their entire education costs.
    In Canada when a government, without consultation or debate, orders the Multi- Billion dollar purchase of fighter jets without tender it MUST be considered a dictatorial maneuver that shows total and utter contempt for our so called DEMOCRATIC PROCESS.
    In my Opinion what has been proven so often in the past and especially “NOW” is when a group or party get that proverbial “MANDATE” or MAJORITY they feel it is their right to marginalize the oposition and literally assume the role of dictators answerable to NO ONE.
    That Bob Rae brought this to the fore front once again is admirable BUT it will NOT deter this Group from doing whatever they want..The past speaks for itself as does the Denfenceless Minister.

    The revolution is at hand !!! Its time for the hard working Canadians to take back our country. We need our elected officials to call for a election NOW. We need to send a clear message to Mr. Harper that it is time for him to leave and never return.

    I agree with the above posts. It is time to do something to keep this out of control government from ruining things in Canada even more.

    However, first, I’m afraid, we’ll need to shake the cobwebs from the lethargic, uninformed minds of people who brag that they are foiurth generation Conservatives (as if that’s something of which to be proud !) and push for more awareness in the minds of the general public. Most will likely be able to identify Harper in a photo, but many would never be able to spot MacKay….or Toews…or Tony Clement…..or Candace Hoepner (LGR)…..etc.

    That is our problem and the Conservatives like it that way.

    Time to speak up, Canadians. Educate yourself and lets avoid giving such an extreme bunch of ‘rednecks’ as the Harper-cons are a majority ever again.
