A Canadian Veteran Prepares to Go After Peter MacKay
A few weeks ago I told you how veterans are preparing to declare war on the Harper regime, that has treated them so shabbily.
And how they are planning to make their presence felt in the next election campaign.
A network of veterans across Canada is planning a co-ordinated campaign against the Conservative government during next year’s election.
“When the election is called, you’re going to see some large fallout, believe me,” said Sydney veteran Ron Clarke. “As soon as the writ is dropped, we are in action.”
Now one of them has announced plans to go after the ghastly Con buffoon Peter MacKay.
A Canadian Forces veteran, who served for 27 years in such hot spots as Afghanistan, Bosnia and Kosovo, wants to take on veteran Conservative MP and former defence minister Peter MacKay in his Central Nova riding, setting up a tense dynamic for the 2015 general election.
David MacLeod is seeking the Liberal nomination in the northern Nova Scotia riding, which Mr. MacKay, now the Justice Minister, has represented since 1997.
And I couldn't more delighted.
Not just because the polls in that part of Canada are looking so favourable...
So I think David MacLeod would stand a very good chance of bringing down MacKay.
But also because as Tim Harper pointed out recently, the vets could be a potentially powerful political force.
So far, it sounds like loose, angry talk. But the governing Conservatives are playing with fire with the country’s war veterans. If they can — as they have threatened — organize, mobilize and speak with one voice during next year’s federal election, the government will have a major problem on its hands; a problem of its own making.
And while they may be just getting started now, are still getting organized, and aren't yet speaking with one voice.
Right now, the government can benefit only because veterans groups seem unable to speak as one political voice. Should that change, there can be few other lobby groups that could mount a more powerful or politically damaging campaign against a government seeking re-election.
I am absolutely confident they will come together, and deal a massive blow to the Con regime...
And if they need any help with ANYTHING I'm ready to volunteer right now. Because I support our veterans all the way. They have been treated in an incredibly shameful and un-Canadian manner. And they deserve so much better.
And of course, I have to admit it eh?
If one of them could bring down the Con buffoon Peter MacKay I would party for DAYS.
For the only thing better would be if we could also bring down Julian Fantino...
Because both of those shabby stooges deserve the same fate.
Yup. Come on veterans. Help liberate this country.
Show the Cons no mercy.
Go MacLeod GO !!!!!
