BREAKING: Con Minister Accused of Threatening an NDP MP
If you want to know what Stephen Harper and his ghastly Cons have done to our Parliament all you had to do is watch Question Period today.
For I've rarely seen a more rowdy session. The Cons were howling like jackals, or drunks.
So I'm not surprised that a Con Minister has been accused of threatening an NDP MP.
With just days to go before Parliament is scheduled to shut down for a two-week constituency break, tempers flared after the New Democrats accused a Conservative cabinet minister of making 'an inappropriate gesture' at NDP member Niki Ashton.
Rising on a point of order after a particularly rancorous question period, New Democrat MP Dan Harris claimed that International Trade Minister Ed Fast had directed what he described as "an inappropriate gesture, a gun, while saying 'Boom'," in Ashton's direction.
Fast is denying the allegation:
"It's completely false. I made no such gesture, I said no such words. I'm surrounded by my colleagues here, and none of them saw me make that gesture or make that kind of comment," he averred, demanding that Harris himself apologize "for misleading the House."
But you know it has happened before....
When those Reform cowboys get riled up they're capable of ANYTHING.
And how can the Harper gang explain the outrageous behaviour of another Con MP, Ron Cannan, who entered the NDP section from behind the curtains and apparently tried to challenge Harris to a fight?
"He was coming down the row, yelling at me and he had to be physically restrained from coming at me…. He was challenging me to come outside. That kind of behaviour has no place in Parliament."
I mean is that a loose Cannan or what?
And what none of them can deny is that the Cons were acting like ANIMALS because I saw it with my own eyes.
And no doubt what had them riled up was the way the opposition denounced the way Pierre Poilievre had attacked the Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and NDP Leader Tom Mulcair say a government attack yesterday on the head of Elections Canada was unprovoked and partisan.
"For a minister of the Crown to engage in such blindly partisan attacks is weakening the fabric of our democracy and is absolutely unacceptable," Trudeau said.
And the way Tom Mulcair caught Harper in a contradiction and put Pierre Poilievre in his place...
Which left Poilievre looking like an idiot.
And no doubt wondering who hit him this time?
Because there have been so many, and he still can't find ONE expert to support his bill.
And all I can say is what this circus shows is that the Cons are getting DESPERATE.
They can't defend their foul Unfair Elections Act. Their polls are tanking. They're fighting themselves. They're threatening others. They're turning our Parliament into a redneck rodeo.
And of course, their Great Leader is slowing losing his marbles.
In short: the universe is unfolding just like I hoped it would.
We have them where we want them. And if they don't self destruct, or the police don't get them.
We WILL destroy them...
