For seven long and dark years Stephen Harper was able to hold this country in his iron grip.
For years him and his Cons were able to fool Canadians into thinking they knew what they were doing.
For years he was able to make the stooge media dance to his tinny tunes.
But now it's all going horribly wrong.
Canada posted its worst monthly jobs loss in more than four years in March, another sign the economy is struggling to cope with weak foreign markets and a strong Canadian dollar.
Canada shed 54,500 positions in March, more than wiping out the 50,700 jobs that were added in February, Statistics Canada said on Friday.
Their Big Oil policies are killing good jobs all over the country. Even in their precious Alberta. The housing market is slowly collapsing. The trade deficit is ballooning.
Adding to the gloom were trade figures for February that showed Canada's deficit increased to C$1.02 billion on both lower exports and higher imports. Traders had expected a surplus of C$200 million.
Now they have been exposed as frauds and Con artists. The Porky Action Plan gang.
Now even some in the MSM are calling a dictator a dictator.
Canadian democracy is under threat from its own government. The Conservatives under Stephen Harper are running an effective dictatorship. They believe they are quite within their rights to muzzle Parliament, gag civil servants, use taxpayer money for blatant political self-promotion, stand accused of trying to subvert a federal election and hand over much of Canada's magnificent natural heritage to the multinational oil and gas lobby.
What is even more disturbing is that the national media, with a few notable exceptions, has underplayed or ignored these developments that are a clear assault on Canada's democratic institutions and processes.
How long will Canada be able to claim to be a first-world democracy if this anti-intellectual, anti-science and clearly anti-democratic climate persists in Ottawa's corridors of power?
It really is the twilight of the Con regime. This corrupt rotting government is finally on its way out. It's only a matter of time.
As long as they were able to fool people into thinking that they were good money managers it gave them a Teflon coating...
But now that Teflon coating is falling off, like flesh off a corpse, every blow we land on them will be the equivalent of three or four.
For as the pain of their failed economic policies hurts more and more Canadians, the anger of their many victims will be hard to contain. All the foul things the Cons have done will appear even worse than they have been.
And Canadians will be inclined to show them and their stooges no mercy.
The struggle will still be long and hard, for the Cons will be DESPERATE.
But the democratic opposition now has the wind in its sails.
Nobody will be able to deny what the Dutch Disease has done to this country.
Almost all the job losses were in full-time positions. The manufacturing sector, particularly affected by the strong Canadian dollar and struggling customers, lost 24,200 jobs.
Or what the Cons have done to decency, with their Big Lies.
And their plans to make their precious Alberta richer, even if they killed Canada.
Or the future of young Canadians.
Say thank you for nothing. LOSERS.
And give The Great
