Stephen Harper, Tim Hudak, and the Con Climate Change Deniers
When I first saw this picture of Stephen Harper and Tony Abbott having breakfast together, I thought something had gone wrong with their "special relationship."
I mean they both looked so tense, and the cat looked sooooo jealous.
And that even after Abbott called Harper a "beacon" for Conservatives all over the world.
But I guess Steve didn't like the way Tony called Canada CANADIA...
And neither did Tony, for obvious reasons...
But whatever was bothering those two climate change deniers, they soon got it out of their systems, by taking turns gang banging the very idea of a carbon tax.
Stephen Harper and Tony Abbott together took a hard line Monday against measures to limit the emissions that cause climate change if there's a threat those measures would hurt their countries' economies.
Harper praised Abbott for his work as chair of the G20, as well as for ending Australia's carbon tax. "You've used this international platform to encourage our counterparts in the major economies and beyond to boost economic growth, to lower taxes when possible and to eliminate harmful ones, most notably the job-killing carbon tax," Harper said.
And if you thought that was a ghastly spectacle, it only grew worse a few hours later.
When another climate change denier, Oily Joe Oliver, stumbled out of his crypt to meddle in the Ontario election.
Finance Minister Joe Oliver lectured Canada's two largest provinces about their deficits and debt levels, saying he fears provincial governments will reverse the nation's economic recovery by taking on too much debt.
And, on the eve of an Ontario election, he urged the province to make similar cuts and move toward a “serious commitment to growth and a balanced budget.”
Because the Cons will do ANYTHING to help their man Tim Hudak.
Who let us not forget, had his economic platform approved by the American climate change denier Benjamin Zycher, who works for the Koch brothers, who fund climate change deniers all over the world...
And Hudak is their candidate, or their little monster.
But what makes Oliver's intervention even more outrageous, is that if Ontario is having to struggle to bring down its deficit, it's largely because of the petro policies of him and the other oil pimps in the Con regime.
Who favoured Alberta over all the other provinces, destroyed good manufacturing jobs in Ontario's industrial heartland.
And are replacing them with lousy low wage jobs in a part-time Canada.
Over the past year, if it hadn’t been for part-time work, Canada wouldn’t have any employment growth at all. The country has added 112,200 part-time jobs in the past 12 months, but it has lost 26,700 full-time jobs. Part-time jobs now make up 19.3 per cent of all employment in this country – the highest proportion in nearly three years.
As the Canadian job market stumbles, we’re becoming a nation of part-timers – and, increasingly, not by choice.
Instead of the good green jobs of the future. The kind of jobs Tim Hudak would KILL.
In addition to some drastic cuts to public sector jobs, Hudak’s pledge to end subsidies to wind and solar power would have the effect of killing thousands of jobs in Ontario’s newest manufacturing sector — green energy.
Because he too is a climate change denier, and that is yet another reason he must be defeated.
And what all of the above should remind us, is that we are living in a pariah country run by a criminal rogue regime. One that would put short term greed before the interests of a burning planet.
And who, on top of all their other crimes against Canada and its values, are also leading us to economic disaster.
Oh boy. You know, I think Joe Oliver should stop meddling in a provincial election.
I think he should stop posing as a Finance Minister.
And go back to his old job of trying to convince us the water in the tar ponds is safe enough to drink...
Because surely nobody could ever accuse him of being a suppository of economic knowledge eh?
Or could they?
And as for Stephen Harper, and the rest of his shabby gang of oil pimps, they should reflect on their actions.
For climate change WILL become a bigger and bigger issue.
And when more Canadians understand what those climate change deniers have done , they will not be pleased.
The brutal day of reckoning will come.
The Cons will be accused of deliberately threatening the future of humanity.
Which is unforgivable.
And the verdict will be harsh...
