As we know Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney have been in the same leaky boat, or the same sweaty closet, from the day the Con regime was crushed and humiliated.
Still collecting their big fat MP pay cheques, while doing nothing to deserve them.
With Harper setting up his own business, and Kenney campaigning for another job in Alberta.
But now at last it seems they are finally about to summon up the courage to resign.
And it turns out it won't be THAT painful.
Not with the big fat juicy pensions they are about to receive.
As Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney count down the days before exiting federal politics, they can start adding up the several millions of dollars they’re ultimately in line to receive from the parliamentary pension plan.
It’s an enormous amount of money for two MPs who, in the 1990s, labelled the pension scheme as “obscene” and came from a Reform Party that had fought against a lucrative “gold-plated” pension plan.
And so much for Stephen Harper, who once smirked obscenely when asked to help bolster the humble Canada Pension Plan.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper “smirked” and told Kathleen Wynne in a private meeting that Canadians need to save for their own retirement because it’s not up to government to look after them, the Star has learned.
Even though he'll soon be rolling in dough, like a pig in a trough...
While millions of seniors struggling to survive on their tiny CPP cheques, slowly die of poverty and degradation.
So much for the grubby Conservative Party that is still fighting to steal the food off the tables of the poor and the vulnerable.
And of course so much for Jason Kenney, who would roll around Alberta in a Mexican-made pick up truck, to try to pose as a man of the people.
Would make us believe that he never wanted a gold-plated pension. But will take it anyway.
And is no doubt hoping he will soon be able to trade in his Mexican pick-up truck, for something bigger.
Or something more Jason...
So he can keep riding the gravy train of power he craves so much.
And keep running over his enemies...
Like that good progressive who has apparently been made to pay for helping lead the struggle to stop Kenney in his tracks...Alll my followers, I lost my job today most likely due to my speaking up against @jkenney Let us all do what we can to expose @jkenney #yyc— Unite Alberta (@UniteAlbertans) August 22, 2016
And try to save Alberta from that ghastly bully.
Because some progressives are still fighting to save this country. While others do nothing, or have fallen into a deep sleep.
Or like the depraved Mound of Sound find any excuse to attack Justin Trudeau.
Even if that means turning this moving moment into something ugly...
As only that miserable misogynist, vile homophobe, and deranged Trudeau hater could.
You know, last night I spent some time at this monument to Jack Layton, on the fifth anniversary of his death...
And it was a sad moment, for I have always supported all progressives, red, orange, and green.
And I miss Jack, the happy warrior, who never stopped fighting the Cons until death stole him from us.
And needless to say my struggle will also continue.
Until the Cons are finally destroyed...
Until they are just a bad memory.
And we are truly free at last...
