The Day Stephen Harper Sold the Canadian Farm
Well it took him almost ten years, to destroy Canada as we once knew it.
But I see Stephen Harper and his porky Cons have finally sold the farm.
A free-trade deal that opens a small part of the Canadian dairy market to cheaper foreign imports could spell the beginning of the end for the country’s dairy supply management system, and push inefficient farmers out of business, observers say.
And so much for our family farmers.
And no doubt, once we find out what's in that deal, so much for our auto industry, Via Rail, the CBC, our medicare system etc etc. And of course so much for our sovereignty.
But then, as Neil Young said, albeit in a Freudian slip, Canada is not a country it's a company.
Weighing in on the federal election campaign, Canadian music icon Neil Young says Canada’s “backwards” political leadership has “trashed” the country’s resources and diminished Canada’s image on the world stage.
“Canada used to be a leader and Canada used to be known as a company – as a country – that was a Freudian slip,” he said, “with a conscience. And this leadership is ... just backwards.
And Stephen Harper and his backward regime are quite capable of selling us out to Big Business, in their never-ending attempt to turn us into a low wage paradise. And this rushed deal is just a desperate attempt to try to portray themselves as good economists.
Instead of the worst and most incompetent and corrupt government this country has ever seen.
But then of course I also know why the Cons created Bill C-51, so they could call anyone who disagrees with them a terrorist.
So I for one wish to hail our new multinational masters.
And declare that I can't wait to try those yummy dairy products from New Zealand...
You know, after seeing that, I can't help thinking that this new Con trade deal is like a container of yogurt left on the kitchen counter for a month.
Stephen Harper will use it to try to portray himself as a Great Economist Leader.
So I strongly suggest that we encourage Canadians to pry off the crusty lid in their dreams.
And imagine what might lie inside...
And of course encourage them to do the sensible thing.
Declare that both the yogurt and the morally depraved dictator are way past due.
And throw them both out...
