What do these cutbacks have to do with the general public... the National Gallery has been suffering from low attendance for years and only those that visit Ottawa could even be remotely affected...

Auto emissions... I am sure there are non-governmental organizations that could tell us exactly what the high paid public servants (scientists) could. Did you really think that faced with a public deficit there would be be no public sector job losses?

Chretien slashed transfers to the provinces and health care delivery when the Libs were faced with debt and deficit... where would you rather the fat be cut? Oh I have an idea National Defence, something that we all benefit from.

Sorry but in my opinion this is the start of the "culture wars" I alluded to in other posts during the election.

Simply put for the National Gallery of Canada to cut its expert in Modern Canadian art says more than I can possibly express in a post. Secondly, given climate disruption is it wise that the ruling party axe experts in carbon emissions? Give me and the country a brake please.

Here's the full text of today's Speech from the Throne.

The opposition to Harper's agenda began quickly - a Page working in Parliament stood up during the speech with a "Stop Harper" sign...



...and she came prepared, issuing a press release immediately after being escorted from the building.

One wonders what would have happened had something like this happened during one of the U.S. Presidents' speeches in front of Congress....

Right on, Vandave. Now that The Harper Government of Canada has a majority, any disagreement with any policy should be stopped ASAP. For repeat offenders from these re-education camps, there should be gulags spread throughout Canada.

Long live Big Brother!!!

A press release later named her as Brigette Marcelle and said she was protesting the government's decision to "spend billions on fighter jets, military bases and corporate tax cuts, while cutting social programs and destroying the climate."

What the heck does she want to do with these billions?????? Spend it on the poor? Housing for the homeless? Better medical care for all seniors? Food for those who hunger?

Where are her priorities????????????
