Lac-Mégantic and the Callousness of the Cons
As people in the shattered little town of Lac-Mégantic try to recover from the terrifying tragedy that struck their town.
Try to come to terms with the fact that the bodies of many of their loved ones may never be found.
As all over Canada people who live near railway lines wonder if they will be next.
The Con chairman of the House of Commons transport committee says it's "premature" to discuss rail safety.
“What is the committee going to meet about? We have no results out of the investigation,” said Larry Miller, who represents the Ontario riding of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.
And shrugs off this damning report:
In a 2011 report, the commissioner of the environment and sustainable development, inside the auditor general’s office, pointed to long-standing weaknesses in the government’s oversight of the transportation of dangerous goods.
Miller said the fact that Transport Canada hasn’t met the recommendations is “another issue altogether.” “It’s not connected to this train derailment,” he said.
But then why am I not surprised eh?
When Larry Miller is the one who thought the greatest threat to Canadians was the GUN REGISTRY...
You know, good old redneck Larry, who believes that those who support gun control are NAZIS...
Oh boy. It would still be funny, if it now wasn't so tragic.
But then that's the Harper Cons. Who would claim that they're making Canada safer by flooding our streets with unregistered weapons. While not lifting a finger to save us from being incinerated in our sleep.
It's almost unbelievable eh? How callous and irresponsible can they be?
But they should know this: Today we mourn the dead of poor little Lac-Mégantic.
But tomorrow we will REMEMBER.
And drive those ghastly redneck Cons and their depraved leader from power.
Before they kill us ALL...
