Why Are the Harper Cons Stealing Government Land?
Its design has not been finalized, but it will be called the Memorial to the Victims of Communism.
It will be built on a choice piece of land in the heart of official Ottawa.
Land a well known architect is now accusing the Harper regime of stealing.
A prominent Ottawa architect is accusing the federal government of “stealing” the site that’s been chosen for the new Memorial to Victims of Communism.
In an open letter to Stephen Harper, Barry Padolsky urges the prime minister to find a “more appropriate” location for the memorial, to be built on a 5,000-square-metre property on Wellington Street, next to the Supreme Court of Canada.
And it's not hard to figure out why the Cons are doing that.
To show their contempt for the justice system, and the legacy of Pierre Trudeau.
That site had long been designated as the future location of a new building for the Federal Court of Canada, called the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Judicial Building in government planning documents.
Padolsky says the Trudeau building — or another comparable structure — is the missing piece in a planned “judicial triad” that would include the Supreme Court of Canada Building and the Justice Building on its eastern flank.
And it couldn't be cheaper or more disgusting.
For first of all, what is something that could look like this doing in the heart of our country's capital?
Are we Canada or Latvia?
And where is the monument to the victims of fascism? Or for that matter the monument to the victims of capitalism. The millions of people who toil for slave wages, in ghastly gulag places all over the world.
But what makes this squalid story even more disturbing, is the way government departments have bent backwards to satisfy the deranged wishes of the Con regime.
In 2011, the National Capital Commission reserved a site for the proposed Memorial to Victims of Communism at the Garden of the Provinces, on Wellington Street just west of Bay Street.
But, in May 2012, Public Works allocated the current site to Tribute to Liberty, the charity behind the proposed the memorial. According to an email from the Department of Canadian Heritage, the current site “was deemed more favourable” by Tribute to Liberty because of its proximity and “thematic links” to the Supreme Court of Canada, the Peace Tower, Parliament Hill and Library and Archives Canada.
When there are no "thematic links" to any of the other buildings in the area.
The whole idea is just the product of Stephen Harper's Cold War mentality, his hatred of the courts...
And of anything Trudeau.
As well as just another scam designed to buy the ethnic vote with millions of OUR tax dollars.
And the way government departments are being used to rubber stamp anything the Cons suggest. Or are being used to persecute their many enemies.
A left-leaning think-tank was targeted by the Canada Revenue Agency for a political-activities audit last fall partly because the research and education material on its website appears to be "biased" and "one-sided."
Tells you all you need to know about about this ghastly Harperland.
And suggests to me that we need a monument to the Victims of the Con Regime more than we need any other.
For nobody has violated our country, its people, and its democratic values, more than Stephen Harper and his filthy government.
So may I suggest that one of the first actions of a new progressive government should be to cancel that project.
Or bulldozer it out existence.
As soon as we take down this monument...
For the man was a tyrant, and a monstrous MANIAC.
He deserves nothing but contempt.
Freedom is a precious thing.
And we can't defeat him soon enough...
