Perogie: A teaching moment



PM Harper to Liberal Party: Your Time Is UP!

The Liberals have failed in their responsibility in 2009 as the loyal opposition. They chose to use the Senate to delay and obstruct the Agenda of the Government. They were warned several times by the government to stop playing games. They chose not to listen and take their duty seriously. I am happy to have our PM provide a teaching moment for dysfunctional parties in the coalition.


Prorogue

Each session of a Parliament ends with the prorogation of Parliament by the Governor General, on the advice of the Prime Minister. Most unfinished business dies and committees cease to function. Parliament then stands prorogued until the opening of the next session on a specified date. This date may be changed by a further proclamation.
Government bills that have not received Royal Assent prior to prorogation can be reinstated in the next session only if the House takes a decision to this effect. All items of Private Members' Business are automatically reinstated. Tabling of documents before the House must await the beginning of the new session. Requests for responses to petitions and for the production of papers remain in effect, as do requests made for government responses to committee reports.

Prorogation of Parliament


The prorogation of Parliament ends a session. This is done by the Governor General, on the advice of the Prime Minister, either by means of a special ceremony in the Senate Chamber, or by the issuing of a proclamation published in the Canada Gazette. Both the Senate and the House of Commons stand prorogued until the opening of the next session.
During a period of prorogation (or recess), the Speaker, the Prime Minister, Ministers and Parliamentary Secretaries remain in office and all Members of the House retain their full rights and privileges.
The principal effect of ending a session by prorogation is to end business. All government bills that have not received Royal Assent prior to prorogation cease to exist; committee activity also ceases. Thus, no committee can sit after a prorogation.
In order for government bills to be proceeded with in a new session, they must be reintroduced as new bills or they may be reinstated, if the House agrees to this.
The Standing Orders provide for the automatic reinstatement of all items of Private Members' Business in a new session. Committee work may also be revived either by motion in the House, or in committee, depending upon the nature of the study.
Prorogation does not affect Orders or Addresses of the House for the tabling government reports required to be tabled by statute. Requests for responses to committee reports or petitions are still valid following a prorogation. These continue in force from one session to another, but are ended by dissolution.
Teaching Moment

On March 3, 2010 the coalition can't hide behind the senators any longer. The 'Angry' Left: Ralph Goodale, Libby Davies and their parties may be looking for ideas how to spend their twenty eight extended tax funded paid holidays. Here is an idea that won't be a distraction during the Olympics. Best of Luck, see you in 2010!

    Michael Ignatieff: Farewell University Tour 2010


    The latest Nanos Leadership Index tracking indicates that, among decided voters, the Conservatives still hold a solid nine point lead over the Liberals.

    Michael Ignatieff had a very bad year. Warren Kinsella believed 2009 was going to be a good year. He predicted the Liberal party would switch places with the CPC as a result of the economic problems and the Liberals would  benefit from an improved communications discipline.
    The Liberals had to bide their time and let the damage to the economy take hold and the voters would send this aberration PM Stephen Harper to the dustbin. The Liberals were consistent in NOT offering any solutions in December 2008 to the minority led government by the CPC.

     

    The Liberals were ineffective on the strategy of using the un-elected Liberal dominated Senate in holding up the adoption of Budget. The media began to report the Liberal leader was unwilling to push his caucus of unelected Liberal Senators for delaying the retroactive EI extension included in the budget.

    The Liberal leader and his team spent all of 2009 in attack mode and using the Senate to delay and obstruct the will parliament. The Liberal leader and his team were NOT interested in cooperating.


    Moral Compass: Liberal Party is too arrogant

    “We have a very, very serious problem with this relationship and I don’t think I’m going to be able to fix it until I become the prime minister.”-Michael Ignatieff 
     

    The Role of the Opposition

    In Canada, the party with the greatest number of elected representatives that is not the governing party becomes Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition.  This party takes the lead in holding the Government accountable for its policies and actions.  The leader of this party becomes the leader of the Official Opposition, sitting directly across from the Prime Minister.  The duty of the Official Opposition and other opposition parties is to “challenge” government policies and suggest improvements, and present an alternative to the current Government’s policy agenda.
    Opposition members have various opportunities to influence the formulation of laws and policies, including the daily Question Period in the House of Commons.  The Opposition is allocated 20 “Opposition Days” or “Supply Days” each calendar year when it can propose a motion for debate and criticize the Government on issues of broad national policy.  Members of opposition parties also serve on parliamentary committees in both the Senate and the House of Commons.
    In the Senate, the Opposition often plays a less partisan role.  The Leader of the Opposition in the Senate leads the Opposition in debate, coordinates its daily activities and confers with the Leader of the Government in the Senate on its business.  The Leader of the Opposition, like the Leader of the Government, is an ex officio member of all standing committees and helps coordinate party strategy.


    Rumours of a prorogue may extend the vacation by 4-6 weeks. The Coaltion may have concluded the suspension of committees and loss of control in the Senate may force the Coalition's to act in the open again.

    The CPC led government requires ten votes in their March 2009 budget. Will we have floor crossing or a repeat of MP from the Liberals, NDP who break ranks from their leaders as they did with the LGR vote?




    Liberal Loyalty? (oxymoron)
    First, the Liberal Party of Canada is solidly united behind the leader Michael Ignatieff, just as it was united behind St├ęphane Dion, Paul Martin, Jean Chr├ętien, John Turner, and Bob Rae. I know, Rae has nothing to do with it, but let's give him some latitude. -Angelo Perischilli

    Michael Ignatieff will use the next few months to plan his Farewell University Tour 2010 and Thinkers 150 Conference. It will be an opportunity to get some rest and networking for his next career outside politics.

    Bob Rae will not tolerate much more of Amateur Hour at the LPOC.

    Nelson Wiseman chirps in to explain how the Government outwitted the Coaltion again. Liberals are ungrateful as the PM gives them an extra month to find a replacement leader for their party.http://www.cbc.ca/video/news/player.html?clipid=1373034349

    Liberals: Voters Are Just Not Into You.




    The demise and downward trend has been since 2001. General Election Results ONLY. Perhaps the Liberal fortunes are tied to the Global Warming Scheme Kyoto to implement a Cap & Trade Wealth Transfer agreement, Carbon Tax Agenda by socialists.






     
    Martin, Dion, and Michael Ignatieff all have followed the trend of weakening the Liberal Brand outside Toronto. Both Harper and Layton increased their numbers of seats since becoming leaders of their party.

    The Liberals mishandled many key issues: the Nuclear Industry, Isotopes (Maple Reactors), Detainee Policy, EI Surplus and Social Contract (Equalization Transfers) when they took office. Canadian voters continue to abandon the Liberal Party for other political parties.

    The thirteen dark years of Liberals ended in 2006, a new period with a right of centre party firmly in control.

    Predictions For 2010: Blue Wave Pt. II


    Ten Predictions for 2010

    10. LPOC Fundraising the fourth quarter will dissappoint Liberals and reinforce why Rossi left.(1)
    9. Small Increase in bankruptcy for Business and Consumer from 2009.  (2)
    8. Employment will continue to increase as the lagging indicator of the recovery will remain above 8% (3)
    7. Housing Market continues to outperform in high demand markets.(4)
    6. Cap & Trade Lobby Fails in U.S. Senate on $ 30 Billion annual outflow.
    5. Fallout for COP15/IPCC 'redistribution' Program results in more investigations.
    4. The "Angry Left" lose momentum as the Canadian economy and Global economy improves.
    3. The Olympics will boost our business, travel as billions tune in to watch.(6)
    2. The CPC led government will introduce a Budget that will not implement a "carbon" tax.(5)
    1. The Coalition is officialy "rebuked" in a Summer General Election giving the CPC-led government their well deserved Majority.


    The Liberal Party supporters of Bob Rae will publicly split from Michael Ignatieff, if he does not vote against the budget in March 2010. It will be left up to the Bloc, NDP to attempt to extort 'Billions' for their special interest groups in voting to support the Budget. If the Polls continue reflect a five-ten point support for the CPC led government, the coalition will be punished by the public again.

    Liberal Justice: More Hot Air?





    Madam Justice Suzanne Coupal of the Quebec Court said she felt the need to send a clear message against wrongdoing in Canada's political class, in light of the sponsorship scandal and allegations of fraud in the Quebec municipal sector.-12/05/09






    December 5- December 18, 2009

    Mr. Corbeil acknowledged earlier this year that he approved six fake invoices worth $117,000 as director-general of the Quebec wing of the Liberal Party of Canada in 1999 and 2000. He also acknowledged getting a $50,000 kickback in 1997.
    He said at his sentencing hearing that he did not benefit financially from the crimes.
    The Crown prosecutor argued that the sentence was fair and reasonable, and objected to Mr. Corbeil's release.-12/18/09
    Just in time for Christmas!

    How many days is reasonable and fair?

    CPC Led Government Demostrates Best Friend Status With Israel: Coalition Not So Much!


    Who is the best friend of Israel? Review the Press Release from each political Party regarding Kairos.

    NDP- Press Release

    “KAIROS does tremendous work and this cut is mean-spirited and unnecessary,” said New Democrat International Cooperation Critic John Rafferty (Thunder Bay – Rainy River). “At the drop of a hat, the Conservative government has cut this reputable church-based social justice movement without any justification.”

Some Liberals to consider contacting: Scott Brison, Bob Rae, Marlene Jennings, Mario Silva, Justin Trudeau, John Cannis, and Michael Ignatieff.




    'Buycotts' against Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions - Jewish World - Israel News - Israel National News

    http://www.israpundit.com/2008/?p=18893


    Let's try to be fair on one point. Immigration Minister Jason Kenney didn't explicitly accuse KAIROS – the Toronto-based ecumenical activist group – of being anti-Semitic in remarks last week at the Jerusalem-hosted Global Forum for combatting anti-Semitism.
    What he said was: "We have defunded organizations, most recently, like KAIROS, who are taking a leadership role in the boycott, divestment and sanctions against (Israel)." -DiManno

    'Buycotts' against Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions - Jewish World - Israel News - Israel National News

    Kairos too left-leaning?

    Kairos'  focus on Israel and Colombia would seem to indicate a left-wing political bias and less of a human rights or even a defence-of-Christians bias.  But then who knew that Palestine was a country?"

    Lib bloggers who are they leaning on for support for Kairos?


    UPDATE Is this the Person Liberal Bloggers are going to use to champion Kairos?

    Ms. Ralph, a professor of social work now on leave from Carleton University, contributed a chapter to The Hidden History of 9-11, in which she argues that the Sept. 11 attacks were an American and Israeli conspiracy to “seize control of Eurasia, and thereby the entire world.”-

    The United Church of Canada said it should have exercised “greater scrutiny” before approving funding for the event that founded a controversial alternative Jewish group, according to an email sent to its congregations over the weekend. 

    I have not found a single Liberal blogger who shares the view that Kairos may have been biased or their narrow focus resembles the Agenda of the Coalition. Will keep looking.

    The campaign against the TIFF's spotlight on Tel Aviv also has been a total failure: Despite all the protestor's various self-congratulatory events and manifestos, not a single notable film has been lost from the festival. Jane Fonda, in fact, even withdrew her support from the "Toronto Declaration" being circulated against TIFF after she actually read it — a notable embarrassment.
    Meanwhile, supporters of Israel have been galvanized: Over the weekend, Toronto media magnate Moses Znaimer announced he would be setting up a special session of his vaunted ideaCity conference in Tel Aviv in 2010.
    As countless left-wing activists are discovering, bigotry and hate tend to redound on those who spread them. It's something the UCC might want to keep in mind the next time Israel-haters come by looking for a handout.

    The UN: The ATM Of Choice for Dictators

     

     Who is watching the United Nations?


    UNITED NATIONS -- A U.N. task force has uncovered a pervasive pattern of corruption and mismanagement involving hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts for fuel, food, construction and other materials and services used by U.N. peacekeeping operations, which are in the midst of their largest expansion in 15 years. -Colum Lynch, Washington Post

    The Coalition Supports A much Bigger Tax Increase in 2010



    Why does the Coalition, Premiers from Ontario, Quebec demand Canada transfer our wealth to meet an unrealistic targets?

    Why are the NDP not concerned about this new tax as much as the HST?


    The 2 per cent tax on GDP alone would cost Canada some $26 billion. The $2 a tonne tax would add up to $500 million per year. And the tax on international financial transactions would soak untold billions. This total tax grab is at least $26.5 billion, or over $3,000 a year for every Canadian family – not including the tax on financial transactions or plane trips. -Canadian Taxpayers Federation

    China as part of the G77 will NOT allow the G8 developed Economies who have waved $ 100 Billion carrot requires an audit on their Environmental Progress to qualitfy. Why are the countries in the developing world not interested in an audit mechanism?



    • The COP15 treaty was never about the Environment, it was about transferring wealth for many of the G77 developing countries.
    • COP15 a stimulus program for cops? How much overtime has been earned?
    • How much did Denmark's travel and tourism industry benefit?

    Does Frank McKenna endorse the Liberals firing back?


    Frank McKenna is the sort of retired politician whose elder-statesman status usually keeps him well clear of the partisan fray. But the former New Brunswick premier and Canadian ambassador to the U.S., now deputy chair of TD Bank Financial Group, had some surprisingly hard-nosed advice for Michael Ignatieff in an interview with Maclean’s: hit back at Conservative “thugs” with some Harper-style attack ads of your own. McKenna didn’t pull any punches when asked what the federal Liberal leader should do about Tory ads that label him “just visiting” and “only in it for himself.” “I think you have to fire back,” he said. “My inclination is to use attack ads when you’re attacked.” As for the sort of adversaries the Liberals are up against in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s tacticians, McKenna added, “They are dealing with thugs; they’ve got to fight back and fight hard.”-Frank McKenna

    Looks like the photo contest inspired many thugs of their own. Genocidical dictators, assassination, bestiality....thanks for the advice.


    Merry Christmas and Godbess you. I hope you and your children and grandchildren are never the victims of Liberal thugs posing as free speech.

    Does The Liberal Party think our PM shares Joesph Stalin's Worldview?


     

    I don't accept the apology by the Liberal Party Web Team. Our Prime Minister is being compared to Joesph Stalin  and the assassination photo may have made the finalist panel.



    Calculating the number of victims 

    Researchers before the 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union attempting to count the number of people killed under Stalin's regime produced estimates ranging from 3 to 60 million.[70] After the Soviet Union dissolved, evidence from the Soviet archives also became available, containing official records of the execution of approximately 800,000 prisoners under Stalin for either political or criminal offenses, around 1.7 million deaths in the Gulags and some 390,000 deaths during kulak forced resettlement – for a total of about 3 million officially recorded victims in these categories.[71]






    Making light of the human suffering at the hands of Communism through Joesph Stalin is unacceptable and may be officially endorsed by the Liberal Party. Is there no level the party won't stoop to?

    Being reduced to twenty seats at the next election would be too generous.

    Update: thank you Patrick Ross for the reminder



    HolodomorOneRiotYahooAmazonTwitterdel.icio.us

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As of March 2008, Ukraine and nineteen other governments[20] have recognized the actions of the Soviet government as an act of genocide. The joint statement at the United Nations in 2003 has defined the famine as the result of cruel actions and policies of the totalitarian regime that caused the deaths of millions of Ukrainians, Russians, Kazakhs and other nationalities in the USSR[21]. On 23 October 2008 the European Parliament adopted a resolution[22] that recognized the Holodomor as a crime against humanity.[23]

    Opinion Polls: In 12 months another Liberal Leader Humilated


     December 14, 2009 Angus Poll


    In Dec 13, 2008 Angus Poll had the Liberal Leader much higher.


    Here are some Liberal comments on the Dec 2009 Poll : Pass the kool-aid



    Harper Bizzaro Need coffee?



    Far and Wide finally found a Poll that he does not have to heavily redact. Let's hope no one breaks the news this Poll is very bad news for the Liberals. Everyone should believe in Fairytales.


    No one from Lib bloggers noticed their leader has become a serious liability and Jack Layton has overtaken the Liberals. Michael Ignatieff has joined Dion in becoming the second Liberal who will never become a PM.

    The Liberals don't follow Polls. They were just kidding when they said "Time Is Up"

    “After four years of drift, four years of denial, four years of division and discord — Mr. Harper, your time is up,” the Liberal leader harrumphed on Sept. 1. After four months of discussion, rarely has a political statement proven to be so laughingly wrong. By making the declaration without the approval of his MPs, he was shown to be a self-absorbed leader. By sending the country careening toward its second election in less than a year, Mr. Ignatieff defined himself as a shameless opportunist.By not advancing a compelling reason to justify a snap vote, Mr. Ignatieff portrayed himself as an empty alternative.-Don Martin National Post 12/13/09








    Welcome to the new normal and watching from the cheap seats my Liberal apologists. It is time to fasten those seats belts, 2010 will become a much bumpier ride!

    Why is "Good News" about Canada ignored from Lib blogs? What are they hiding?


    Has anyone noticed on Lib blogs most bloggers refuse to post anything positive about Canada. They are the first to post any negative news that highlights the Federal Government.

    A headline you won't see

    Canada to lead G7 in 2010 recovery: RBC

    Julie Fortier, Financial Post   Published: Monday, December 14, 2009-Read more: http://www.financialpost.com/story.html?id=2338468#ixzz0ZgZ1s6Au

    OTTAWA -- Although Canada experienced a deep recession for most of 2009, the country is now expected to lead the G7 in economic recovery next year, according to a report released Monday by RBC Economics.

    The report stated that after contracting at an average rate of 2.5% this year, real GDP is expected to rise by 2.6% in 2010 as stimulus spending reaches its peak. GDPis expected to jump to 3.9% in 2011, it said.


    The bloggers at Lib blogs might be involved in a "cover up" by redacting these Good News stories.

    Half full or half empty?

    Canada Requires The Americans To Get Serious

    Good News: This Government has not succumbed to transferring billions to the developing world in the pursuit for photo-ops. The liberal media has downplayed the cost to the Canadian taxpayer if the government signed an agreement that would unfairly harm our exports based economy.

    Our energy consumption across all types has declined a table below lists the  2004-2008 time period. and ignored by the liberal media.

    Our position has been consistent in requiring the US to get on board with a Contintental PLAN with their largest trading partner. It requires a fair and equal treatment of our industries. The American account for 20% vs our 1.9% of Carbon emmissions. Here is a list of the countries by carbon emmissions.

    Our Oil Sands account for only 5% of our own emmission and Ontario and Quebec emit more Carbon than Alberta. Will Ontario and Quebec ban the automobile in their province to help reduce the 27% Carbon emitted from use of automobiles? A Liberal provincial minister has been consistent in his criticism of the Federal Government. It may be hard for governments in Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Manitoba to remain chummy with oil-rich provinces if they feel they're taking a hit for a tarsands boom. "Whether or not it's going to be the next national unity issue, I'll leave that to the columnists," Gerretsen said.-Allan Woods Toronto Star 12/14/09

    As a voter of Ontario the idea of increasing the cost on the taxpayers based on Junk Science by a small number of people who prevented a proper peer review is a vote loser for ANY government. I look forward to the coalition suggesting the TOBIN tax, Green Shift is a vote winner. The recent HST Polls, election wins in October 2008 by the CPC eliminate a credible level of support for "green" taxes.

    The Liberal media has ignored key facts that the US under Clinton/Gore did not ratify Kyoto. Bush/Cheney has also refused to ratify Kyoto. In Copenhagen Obama/Biden administration have REFUSED to ratify the Kyoto agreement. Where is the outrage by the Liberal media on the classifying Co2 by the EPA last week as harmful and than an unwillingness to ratify an agreement that Clinton/Gore signed? Has the LPOC promised to ratify Kyoto if re-elected within the next century?

    Where is the Liberal media in justifying  if "Co2" is the real threat and must be curbed why are the largest emitters given a free get out of jail card and Canada being singled out? Are none of these journalists capable of an examination of the facts about the largest emitters of Co2?

    Great sites for additional reading on the double standard from our Liberal media:

    Celestial Junk
    When a reporter get’s too cozy with sources, calling them by their first names, with no hint of professional formality, it raises questions of integrity.

    The Real Deal: PM Stephen Harper

    Through Canada's Economic Action Plan, the Government of Canada has committed $400 million over the next two years to help First Nation communities build needed new housing, repair and remediate existing non-profit housing for their members, and complement housing programs offered by CMHC. This investment will also provide an economic stimulus for many First Nations and surrounding areas by creating jobs. -Canadians Newswire 12/13/09

    Can we do more, yes but are we making progress?


    Canada's economic success has always depended on our ability to export our goods and services to other nations. Today, with the crisis in global financial markets and the economies of our major trading partners in steep decline, we face extraordinary difficulties, the likes of which have not been seen since the end of the Second World War. EAP Government Website

    Will some of these projects be a waste of taxpayers money? Yes, but again have we made progress in bringing all levels of government together to spend on helping deal with a global recession?

    Some politicians love to teardown this country at home, abroad and will focus on the negative to score cheapshots to advance their political party.  Some will travel to Copenhagen this week and join David Miller and declare they are embarrassed for Canada. How does Jack Layton  justify in slamming Canada's environmental record by targeting Alberta's oilsands? Carbon Emmission from automobiles accounts for 27% in Canada and Oilsands for 5%.  Why is Jack not calling for an automobile ban in every major urban centre where mass transit is currently available? In Brazil they have adopted tougher restrictions to reduce automobile pollution. Is it fashionable to attack Canada or Alberta?

    A great post from Lib Blogs about the truth something that should be noted.

    Canadian Sovereignty Must Be Maintained


    While I am all in favour of taking steps to reduce Canada's carbon footprint, we should not be be bullied into doing things which would hurt the long term economic fortunes of this country.-Aaron Ginsberg

    Canada accounts for 2-3% of the Global Carbon emmissions. Why are the opposition parties not  supporting our government in demanding the largest emitters China, US, India make the necessary investments to lower the Carbon emmissions?

    Harper "Skips" Canada-Chuckercanuck

    In 2006 Premier Dalton McGuinty made some comments that may have upset Conservative, Ndp, Green voters. Ontario's premier has thrown support behind Liberal Leader Paul Martin in what Dalton McGuinty called the toughest campaign he has ever seen.-CTV Jan 26, 2006  We know how that turned out!

     

    The Coalition must ACT to stop the allegations of cover up of "War Crimes" and "Torture"


    Liberal Press Release December 11, 2009

    ...Mr. Dosanjh said the secretive manner in which this government continues to operate – the cover-ups, hiding of evidence, contradictions, intimidation of witnesses and censoring of politically damaging documents – is why an independent public inquiry is needed.

    Shoe-gate occurred over three and a half years ago on a battlefied. 

    Colvin Testimony

    Some of these Afghans may have been foot soldiers or day fighters. But many were just local people — farmers, truck drivers, tailors, peasants; random human beings in the wrong place at the wrong time; young men in their fields and villages who were completely innocent but were nevertheless rounded up. In other words, we detained, and handed over for severe torture, a lot of innocent people.
    Part One


    Part Two


    Part Three-NDP on Colvin


    Part Four - Liberals and NDP on Colvin



    Reality gut check time for the coalition!

    If the opposition have their evidence as stated in the House of Commons, they must act immediately by removing the confidence of this current government.

    Why did the Liberals and NDP vote to pass a mandatory confidence matter "Supply Bill" on December 10, 2009?

    Why has this coalition failed to respect and protect the innocent detainees who are farmers and truck drivers from the military and the government?

    The Liberal Media and their Coalition despise our Military and love Taxes

    "I spent a good part of 2006 in Kandahar - three tours of between four to six weeks each in about 10 months, with another tour in '07 - as an embedded reporter, which means I travelled with Canadian troops. I counted on them to keep my ass safe, and they did. I liked them hugely. The experience was one of the most significant of my life (if not on a par with the drama of being, say, in a budget lockup) and I treasure every minute of it. I made some lifelong friends, and I love some of these men."-Christie Blatchford

    How many articles from the Liberal media on the welfare of the detainees murderers* vs other aspects of the mission?  How many questions in QP from the Coalition on the Detainees murderers vs other aspects of the mission? (Hint over 120 questions* in December 2009.)


    The Federal Government has been consistent on this matter and have forced the coaltition to raise their baseless accusations to the next level. You have a hammer and can withdraw your confidence if you believe in the baseless allegations.

    They have taken every opportunity to politicize every issue and to score cheap political points,' Baird says in press conference meant to highlight government accomplishments.

    Judging by the Polls most Canadians would agree with Baird.  The current government continues to lead  in almost every METRIC in the latest EKOS Poll. They have a substantial lead in the 45-65+ demographic (highest voter turnout). Quebec is the only province that does give the current government a clear lead. A regional leger poll shows the CPC and the Liberals are tied and the Quebec City beachead is within General Election results of 2008.


    1. Civil Servants trained are responsible for redaction. Not any Federal Minister.
    2. Liberal led government had no detaine Policy for years 2001-2005 outside ISAF guidelines.
    3. The Liberal led government crafted a weak Detainee Policy near the end of 2005. 
    4. CPC led government made changes to Liberal Detainee Policy and made substantial investments.
    5. We have notes on a single incident demostrating our Military has done the right thing.
    The Liberal media and opposition have chosen to spend all of December trying to create another scandal alleging a conspiracy and cover up by the current Federal Government and a failure in our Military protecting the Human Rights abuses of Detainess murderers and scumbags. From 2001-2005 where was the Liberal media and their concern for the murderers and scumbags?

    When information is made know the Government and the Military have acted properly, to suggest otherwise is just plain silly. Are were revisiting the same issue again for what purpose?

    “Canadian authorities were informed on November 5, 2007, by Canada’s monitoring team, of a credible allegation of mistreatment pertaining to one Canadian-transferred detainee held in an Afghan detention facility,” says the letter, dated Tuesday, and written by senior Justice Department lawyer J. Sanderson Graham.

    “As a consequence there have been no transfers of detainees to Afghan authorities since that date. The allegation is under investigation by Afghan authorities. Canada will resume transferring detainees when it believes it can do so in accordance with its international legal obligations.”



    Amensty International, BC Civil Liberties Association wants to extend the protection of the Charter of Rights & Freedom to the murderers and scumbags and our top court refused to hear their arguement in May 2007.
    The Coalition and the Liberal media are free to try again to extend them more protection and freedom.

    Where were the truth seeking moralist bloggers from 2001-2005 concerns about the treatment of these detainees murderers and scumbags?

    Billions on a the New Tobin Tax (Global Carbon Scheme)

    The same Liberal media and opposition has ignored to REPORT for two weeks, investigate the alleged illegal activity of the a small number of individuals who have tainted the peer review process, acted illegally on the freedom of information requests, deleted raw data, and evidence from a few in the emails to hide the decline, repeat a the trick. The BBC sat on the leaked emails for five weeks.

    The UN has become complicit in Climategate by intimidating an accredited journalist from asking questions at a book release held at a UN Correction: COP 15 event.
    Professor Stephen Schneider’s assistant requested armed UN security officers who held film maker Phelim McAleer, ordered him to stop filming and prevented further questioning after the press conference where the Stanford academic was launching a book.


    Where is the neutrality of the Canadian media under reporting the first Global Tax and pushing an incident from three years ago?
