Stephen Harper and the Child Pornographers
As I'm sure you know, Stephen Harper likes to pose as a great friend of children, or a Great Mother Leader.
When he's not posing as a Great Warrior Leader.
And fighting child pornographers has always been a big part of the Con political platform...
But sadly like so many other Con promises or threats, there's the ugly rhetoric and then there's the ugly reality.
RCMP have been holding back millions of dollars from the force's vaunted program to fight online child pornography, partly to help the Harper government pay down the federal deficit.
CBC News has learned that over a five-year period, Canada's national police force Mounties withheld some $10 million in funds earmarked for its National Child Exploitation Co-ordination Centre and related projects, linchpins of the government's anti-child-pornography agenda.
So there is no money to fight the child pornographers. The Harper Police would rather fight the deficit.
And for that not enough money either to encourage parents to vaccinate their children.
The Conservative government cut funding to a federal immunization program even as public skepticism about vaccinations was growing in the midst of the swine flu outbreak in 2009, documents show.
A 2006 report on the Public Health Agency of Canada showed the government had committed $10 million to the federal immunization program. By 2014, that number had fallen to about $7.6 million.
But there is all the money in the world for ads about deadly evils of marijuana.
By way of contrast, newly released figures reveal that the Conservatives spent more than $7 million on a 12-week anti-drug advertising campaign that ended in January.
And the evils of Justin Trudeau...
And even more money for the latest round of porky ads.
The latest federal spending estimates show that four federal government departments have been given another $11 million for advertising as the current fiscal year-end approaches.
The ad spending splurge comes amid large campaigns promoting Conservative family tax measures that have not yet been approved by Parliament and aggressive Defence department recruitment ads that dovetail with current Conservative anti-terrorism messaging.
Designed to brainwash voters, and bribe them with OUR money.
And really, at this point, what more can you say eh?
Except how low can he go?
Where did that grotesque political pervert spring from?
And of course, if only for the sake of the children.
How soon can we jail him?
