Is It Time to Rename the Cons the Canadian Convict Party?
As you probably know, I've written hundreds if not thousands of posts about the nefarious activities of Boss Harper and his Con mob.
And for more information please consult the latest version of Alison's Perps with Perks.
Because you can't find a better group mugshot anywhere.
But sometimes a simple cartoon can sum up the situation better than a thousand words.
And this is one of them...
Gawd. Why didn't I think of that? The Canadian Convict Party.
Was there ever a better name for a party like that one?
Or a better reason NOT to let Boss Harper delete his e-mails.
Emails in the Prime Minister's Office are at risk of disappearing forever, and need to be better monitored to prevent staff from improperly deleting them.
That's the conclusion of a 16-month probe by Canada's information commissioner, triggered by the temporary disappearance of emails crucial to the RCMP's criminal investigation of Senator Mike Duffy over inappropriate expenses and housing allowance claims.
Because if some can go "missing" so can others.
The lost-and-found emails — and protocols that require bulk email deletions after just 30 days for all PMO and PCO staff — raised troubling questions about the permanent loss of historical records and of evidence needed for court cases. They also raised the prospect of politically embarrassing material disappearing with the tap of a delete button.
And since we know Harper's probably getting his advice from all the wrong people...
We really need to protect those e-mails, if we're to fire him as soon as possible.
And make sure it all ends badly...

On his way to Paraguay.
