For some ghastly reason I couldn't help wondering tonight what Stephen Harper is eating while Chief Theresa Spence dies of hunger.
As Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence continues her hunger strike, a critical care doctor is warning that the human body begins to break down after such a long period without food.
Jones said after three weeks with no food, a person is "very vulnerable" to infections in the lungs and stomach, which can turn "rapidly fatal."
Because you know he does LOVE to eat, and he just gave his personal chef a raise.
While Stephen Harper's public servants are losing their jobs, his personal chef at 24 Sussex isn't doing too badly. Earlier this month Chef Timothy Wasylko got a raise.
And after the horrifying story of what happened to the last one...
Harper arrived at 24 Sussex in 2006, after firing the chef he had at Stornoway. The family cat had died one day and Harper asked the chef to go bury it in the back yard. The chef replied that he was a trained chef, not an animal undertaker. He sued Harper but they settled out of court, and of course, that amount too, has remained a state secret.
You know he's cooking him up more than just a heap of bacon eh?
Or a pile of samosas...
Which makes me wonder how Harper can live with himself, stuffing his fat face with fancy food, while Chief Spence slowly starves.
And how he's going to explain that he DID have time to meet with Justin Bieber...
But he doesn't have time to meet with a First Nations chief, who is dying for her people, and is the suffering symbol of a new and mighty movement.
Or doesn't dare. Because of course he knows he can't defend his plans to allow Big Oil to despoil our lakes and rivers, or defend the way he is breaking Canadian treaties to satisfy foreign interests.
And he knows that even in her weakened condition Chief Spence would do to him.
What Trudeau did to Brazeau...
And the best news? Even the Con media agrees Great
There are justifications for Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s staunch (some would say stubborn) refusal to meet with Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who has been on a hunger strike since Dec. 11. None of them hold water politically. In this instance, yet again, the Conservatives have blundered into a deadfall trap of their own making. Extrication will be difficult. However, they have no option but to try.
Harper should have met with Spence immediately, nipping her movement in the bud. Doing so now will be deemed a climb-down. Nevertheless, he must do so. The alternative — to allow this woman to put her life in jeopardy, and perhaps die, for the sake of preserving political pride — cannot be contemplated.
Golly. Who knew a humble chief, and a new generation of First Nations youth, could make Stephen Harper look so bad eh?
Or so cowardly.
Or give him such a horrible case of political indigestion...
But isn't it WONDERFUL?
Now more than ever join the revolt against the Harper regime.
Support Chief Spence.
Support the Idle No More movement...
