People laugh that Ontario would warm to Bob Rae. Well they did to the liars in Harris's regime.

I wonder if people will still be gullible enough to vote for them in the next election when they make the same promises again?
What?!?! Well, you can't believe what is printed in the Globe and Mail, since they did not even support PM Harper in this election ................... wait ........ they did support him ..............

Well, what do you think of that????

I actually came across this article yesterday :

J-Source.ca -- The Canadian Journalism Project

Quote:
This is not a free press. This is bad for democracy. The fact that a shackled press now stands to an extraordinary degree singing their praises for Dear Leader S. Harper from the same hymn sheet should give us pause for thought and reflection.
this is the direct problem of having big corporations control the press.

Seems some of Harper's appointed Senators have an issue with arranging their own demise.... big surprise!

Conservative senators balking at Senate reform agenda

Quote:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has a majority in the Senate but he may not have the numbers to push through the reforms he planned for the Red Chamber,
Quote:
Harper appointed more than 30 Conservative senators to the upper house in the last 2 1/2 years ó precisely, he said, so he could pass his Senate reform agenda. But, during that time, some senators have publicly and privately suggested they've changed their minds and no longer support Harper's plan to establish provincial senate elections and impose eight-year term limits.

Any position that pays you for just showing up, sort of an attendance bonus, can't be something that is given up easily. The rest of us shall just have to work a bit harder to earn a bit more to pay a bit more taxes to pay for these Senators and their special bonus.
