The Harper Government: dishonest, reckless, stupid

The usual, in other words.


  1. Jerry Ronstead says:

    … and a Trudeau or Mulcair government would be even worse. Best to stay with the devil we know because the other devils are outright scary.

  2. que sera sera says:

    No doubt more fodder for the Conservatives’ dossiers on suspect Canadians (aka students, aboriginals, immigrants, liberals, feminists, GLBTs, democrats, prisoners, socialists, veterans, childless, singles, atheists, non-Christians, scientists, environmentalists, artists, unemployed, university educated, intellects, pundits, multiculturists, muslims, palestinians, etc. etc.).

    “Finley said new policies have been put in place so government staff is more diligent at protecting personal information.”

    What we really need are new policies put in place to protect citizens from the outrageous abuses of the Harper government & its taxpayer funded relentless, bilious propaganda machine.

    And someone, anyone, within this toxic government, from the PMO on down, actually interested in adhering to policies in the first place.

    It is so hard to get good help. The myth remains in tact that Reformers are good managers. I am quite certain many in Harper’s cabient have not run a lemonade stand, let alone kept a paper route for more than a week.

  5. E Madsen says:

    Certainly NOT unavoidable as Diane Finley says.

  6. Peter says:

    And yet, constantly, there are certain “pundits” and “politicos’ of the right wing media that herald the brilliant political mind of one Stephen Joseph Harper, yet under his stewardship, our country seems to stagger from one crisis to another, nobody seems to be minding the store…when Harper finally is ejected from the PMO…the incoming governing party…will no doubt find a sabotaged mess, cooked books, all the Conservatives lies and scheming will come to light…and whomever the new PM will be…will no doubt be aghast over how completely disruptive and a total failure this Harper government was… You heard it here first…the new PM will have to hold a press conference…stating that the business the nation can’t move forward until the ungodly mess Harper will leave behind is remedied. And Canadians will pay through the nose for it…

    • Peter says:

      I presume you are referring to the inability of anyone else to win an election?

      • Peter says:

        Oh, I see, you win an election and thus have carte blanche to proceed against the grain of 60% of Canadians that voted otherwise. This is the problem with the political agenda of the Conservatives and Harper…not only does the vote reflect that Harper didn’t win the popular vote…but the fact that Harper refuses to represent the will of the Canadian people as PM…only what’s important to the Reformacon agenda…when you become the leader of a country…it’s not winner takes all…is can the winner lead for all.

        But why discuss democratic honour when all the right wing can say when its own corruption is unraveled before all…all the right wing say is…”Hey we won!!” As if that somehow excuses the lies, scheming and underhanded erosion of our democracy.

        Democracy is precious and fragile system. Why? Because democracy thrives on the honour system. Any fool with a little power can disrupt and erode a democracy. It’s no great feat. Thus we need honourable leaders to make it preserve the legacy and growth of democracy. Make it work.
        Unfortunately one Stephen Harper is anything but an honourable leader.

  7. Reuben says:

    Dishonest, reckless, stupid? Was there ever a Canadian government that was “honest, careful, intelligent”? 🙂

  8. Shawn Doran says:

    I hate it when stuff out of “The Thick of It” comes true, especially when it’s on our side of the ocean. (Though of course in that case it was losing thousands of immigration files on a data stick, but the seriousness of the matter is the same here)
