The Contempt of Stephen Harper and the Shame of Pierre Poilievre
Well nobody can deny that they were made for each other. Or made of each other.
With Stephen Harper usually being the mouth, and Pierre Poilievre the other end.
For there was Harper's ghastly little baby today defecating all over the Chief Electoral Officer.
As criticism of the Conservatives’ electoral reform bill continues to mount, Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre launched an attack on Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand.
“(Mayrand’s) recommendations really boil down to three broad requirements for him: he wants more power, a bigger budget, and less accountability.”
Can you believe that? A sleazy member of the Con regime sliming an officer of parliament like that, and daring to use the word ACCOUNTABILITY???
The same one who dares not mention Sheila Fraser's name, even as he tries to smear No Name as a paid stooge of Elections Canada.
But then who can blame him for fearing the wrath of The Great Sheila?
Because she was out there again today dismantling his foul bill in public. And saying this about Poilievre's cowardly attack on Marc Mayrand:
“This serves none of us well. It undermines the credibility of these institutions, and at the end of the day, if this was to continue, we will all pay because no one will have faith in government, in chief electoral officers, or our democratic system,” Fraser warned MPs.
“To actually attack (Mayrand) for bringing forward his concerns is totally inappropriate.”
And of course she's absolutely right. It's not just a vile assault on yet another officer of parliament. It's an assault on what's left of the sacred trust that should exist between government and the governed.
And it is a blatant attempt to bludgeon our democracy, make it easier to steal an election, and suppress the vote.
A trio of seniors group representatives say they are baffled by Conservative changes that will make it more difficult for many politically engaged seniors to vote in the next federal election.
And student representatives are scratching their heads over the proposed elimination of Elections Canada outreach programs that target low youth turnout.
But if you want to know how low Stephen Harper has already dragged our democracy, into the dark hole of his diseased depravity.
All you have to do is watch how he first reacted today when Tom Mulcair demanded that he apologize for Poilievre's cowardly assault on Marc Mayrand...
Because now he doesn't even bother to hide his contempt for Parliament. Or even answer questions with a Big Lie. Now he just ignores them.
He will show the Leader of the Opposition no respect. He will seek to debase decent Canadians like Sheila Fraser, he will smear anybody who dares stand in his way.
For he has nursed a grudge against Elections Canada for a long long time. The Unfair Elections Act we now find out is all about REVENGE.
A government backbencher, whose razor-thin victory in the 2011 general election came under scrutiny in a Federal Court challenge, claims “leaks” from within Elections Canada led to explosive news reports about fraudulent robocalls during the election and are likely one of the reasons the government wants to transfer Elections Canada’s investigative branch to the Director of Public Prosecutions Office.
“I’m sure it had an impact, because, I mean, the investigations, I don’t think were handled professionally,” Conservative MP Jay Aspin (Nipissing-Timiskaming, Ont.) told The Hill Times.
So NOTHING or NOBODY is going to stop him from having his way with Elections Canada.
And screwing it beyond recognition !#@!!!!
And the good news? He's out of his mind. Him and Poilievre and the rest of that scummy gang are pushing their luck.
Canadians are a complacent bunch, but they will defend their democracy.
We will use all of this to smear him further.
The Cons will drown in their own excrement.
And Big Daddy and his foul bully baby.
Will end up where they belong...
