A few days ago I wrote a post about how Stephen Harper was turning the RCMP into Harper's police.
Just another tool in his campaign to try to win the next election.
Now please stand to attention, kiss our democracy goodbye.
And salute Harper's Army.
Anyone receiving Department of National Defence press releases could be forgiven for thinking the only thing happening on Canadian military bases over the past two weeks has been photo ops. Since Parliament rose for the summer on June 19, the department has sent out more than a dozen press releases and held several press conferences where Conservative MPs have announced investments in infrastructure at local bases and military facilities.
Or the Department of
And of course, it would have to be Julian Fantino handing out all that money.

The most recent was a photo op at CFB Trenton where Associate Defence Minister Julian Fantino and Conservative backbencher Rick Norlock announced $10 million in new construction.
Fantino has actually been the main attraction at a number of events over the past two weeks, making appearances at military facilities in Toronto, Halifax and Kitchener. At each stop, he and local Conservative MPs have posed with Canadian military personnel for photos that later show up on social media.
The Con who would try to buy an election with millions of dollars of OUR money.
And the military only to happy to help him by starring in his photo-ops...
The ones who while working for their depraved leader, have all the money in the world for massive infrastructure projects.
But never enough money to help veterans or injured soldiers.
A soldier who was injured in an explosion in Afghanistan is fighting for his home. Sgt. Kevin Nanson has been in a wheelchair since being injured when an improvised explosive device went off in 2008. The military is paying to have his home renovated to accommodate his wheelchair, but Nanson says after two years, the work is far from complete and his house is uninhabitable.
Nanson says the federal government is telling him he is on his own to pay for the work to be finished, and he is also facing discharge from the military, which means no more paycheques.
Which couldn't be more disgusting.
But then of course this is not a new story. The generals who run Harper's Army have been helping him from the moment he came to office.
Backing up his belligerent messages, and providing him with one absurd photo-op after the other...
So all I'll say is what I've always said. In a democracy an army is supposed to be strictly neutral. If it's not it's not a democracy.
And it's not the CANADIAN armed forces.
And if the generals who are collaborating with the Con regime don't understand that, they will drag down the reputation of the entire military.
And when the day of justice finally arrives.
They will end up in the same place as the monstrous regime they served so well...
First we'll take take back our country.
And then we'll take back our army...
