The Harper Cons Shame Canada Again
OMG. That wretched little Monkey King has done it again.
Pooped on the planet. And shamed us in the eyes of the world.
The Harper government is pulling out of a United Nations convention that fights droughts in Africa and elsewhere, which would make Canada the only country in the world outside the agreement.
And if you thought it was just an unfortunate accident because someone forgot to put on his monkey diapers, you'd be wrong.
He did it DELIBERATELY !!!! And the Cons have REASONS !!!!
The Harper government says it is pulling out of a United Nations convention that fights drought in Africa and elsewhere because it is not interested in supporting a bureaucratic "talkfest."
Scientists talk too much when they're not muzzled. And John Baird says we can't afford it.
"Maybe for a group here on Parliament Hill in Ottawa $350,000 is a little bit of money, but for Canadian taxpayers that's a lot of money," Baird told reporters Thursday.
You know, this John Baird...
The one who has MILLIONS of dollars to spare for his absurd Office of Religious Freedom, but can't spare a tiny fraction of that to help some of the world's poorest people.
Help them survive the horror...
And the HUNGER.
But then those foul Cons don't care if they help kill millions, all they care about is trying to hide the growing and deadly menace of climate change.
And so brutish and dumb are those oil hogs, that they probably don't even realize that they just shot themselves in their hind quarters.
At a time when a parade of federal ministers (including Baird) and provincial premiers, including Alberta Premier Alison Redford, have been invading Washington to tout this country’s supposed “green credentials” in a bid to win presidential approval for the final phase of the Keystone XL pipeline, a decision like this simply blows up all that work.
For if they think they can fool the Americans into thinking they care about climate change, they can forget about it now. Their opponents will use this immoral decision against them.
And it will be a mighty weapon.
Three days ago, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced an additional $51 million in humanitarian assistance to the people of the Sahel, citing a “complex crisis of drought, flooding, failed harvests, and disrupted livelihoods.’’ Baird pulled us out of the UN program trying to prevent it. Wonder how green we look to Kerry now?
Because America knows DROUGHT...
It remembers what happened last year, and what could happen again THIS SUMMER.
And of course the supreme irony is that no provinces are more at risk of drought and desertification than the Con provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Who could one day see their lush grazing grounds and fields wither and turn to dust.
Just like everything the grubby Con's touch, including this country's once priceless reputation.
But believe me they will pay a heavy price for making us ashamed to be Canadians eh?
Now more than ever, unite to defeat the Cons.
Put a diaper on the Monkey King. Or cage him.
Save our beautiful Canada.
Save our precious planet...
