Harper, the CBC, and the Day of Reckoning
When I come across scenes like this one and I wonder how bad it's going to get in Stephen Harper's Canada.
And how much suffering we'll be able to ignore.
And I know that a few blocks away the CBC is being gutted.
And that Great Monster Leader must be so excited he probably has to keep both hands in his pockets to keep from fondling himself in public.
Because he HATES the CBC so much.
And I wonder what kind of country I'm living in...
I wish we could have an election TOMORROW.
But the painful truth is that we can't. The time is not right. The blank cheque, the crime bills, the CBC, are just designed to provoke the Liberals into forcing an election before they are ready.
And this is a far better hill for Harper to die on.
Sooner or later.... when even more Canadians become unemployed in a country without a proper safety net. And the suffering will be impossible to ignore.
Harper's words will come back to haunt him:
"In terms of the unemployed, of which we have over a million-and-a-half, don't feel particularly bad for many of these people. They don't feel bad about it themselves, as long as they're receiving generous social assistance and unemployment insurance."
The day of reckoning will finally arrive.
And the monster WILL be toppled....
