Will Stephen Harper Really Get Away With Rewriting History?
It couldn't be a more Orwellian move, or a greater threat to our democracy.
Stephen Harper's outrageous decision to protect the RCMP by rewriting history.
But this is Harperland, he is drunk with power, he really does believe the truth is what he says it is, and he is out of control.
So it seems there is nothing we can do to stop our Big Brother from bending the law to suit his sinister purposes.
Legal and parliamentary experts say there’s nothing to stop the Harper government from retroactively rewriting a law to absolve RCMP wrongdoing and stuffing the changes in an omnibus budget bill – even as police investigate.
There is apparently nothing we can do to stop him from making a mockery out of our legal system, or ramming that foul bill through parliament, even before another police force has completed its investigation.
The Ontario Provincial Police have confirmed they are investigating the RCMP’s alleged breach of the Access to Information Act after receiving the file from the Public Prosecution Service of Canada.
And not even the Charter of Rights can save us this time:
The charter prohibits changing the law retroactively to make something illegal that was legal at the time. “It doesn’t prohibit the reverse, however: retroactive decriminalization of acts that were criminal when committed,” said Walsh, the former Commons law clerk.
Even though the Information Commissioner Suzanne Legault has warned that rewriting history is both insane and dangerous...
Even though Stephen Harper is indeed turning us into a country we soon won't recognize.
“This is banana-republic behaviour,” NDP Leader Tom Mulcair said in an interview. “This is Canada, it’s not Panama. It’s absolutely reprehensible what they’re doing, the technique itself is reprehensible.”
A country that's starting to look more and more like a police state...
Run by a deranged dictator who would dare claim, as he did today, that he is defending our values. When nobody has done more to rape and destroy them.
It couldn't be more outrageous, or more deeply disturbing.
But even in this insane darkness there is hope. Something might come of that police investigation. And this action has the potential to at the very least embarrass the Cons.
Both the NDP and the Liberals have presented motions to have House of Commons committees call the information commissioner and others to explain what’s going on, although Conservative majorities on the ethics and public safety committees may stymie the effort.
But the best thing is that by this latest foul action he has revealed himself again...
And that can only do him great damage.
Because like his infamous anti-terrorist Bill C-51, this attempt to rewrite history is clearly another abuse of power.
It can only reinforce the same fears Bill C-51 has aroused. And since so many Canadians are now opposed to his police state bill.
Canadians aren't playing along with the Conservative government's game of "I Spy." That's the key finding in a new report released Wednesday just as the Tories prepare to rubber stamp Bill C-51 in the Senate.
This latest anti-democratic atrocity can only make even more Canadians trust him even less.
Or see him as a would be Big Brother too dangerous to be allowed to remain in office...
So in the end Stephen Harper will not get away with rewriting history.
He lost his moral compass long ago, so he didn't know where to draw the line.
His depravity blinded him. His lust for power could not be contained.
He revealed his inner monster.
And it will help destroy him...
