Conservative Bankrupt of Original Thought
This Cabinet of Yes "people" has to go!
Canada deserves visionary leadership. A plan to address not only the financial crisis but at the same time the environmental crisis. We can not lose sight of the fact if we don't save our world's environment/climate the financial bailout won't be worth a plugged nickel.

Environment-Lost In The Carry On
Canadian political leaders need to put the environment right at the top of crisis to deal with along with the current financial mess. Both are a result of human greed and the lack of Government oversight.

Ontario Government Drags Its Feet
Land owners need to have a say on who walks onto and marks up their land, therefore, prospectors should get informed consent.
Why do we have to wait 15 year to have a land use plan in place for the Boreal forests. This area of Canada houses in is soil and trees the world's larges supply of carbon. In Ontario alone, about 97 billion tonnes. Terrestrial disturbances lick mining, road building, and logging ,disturbs the physical environment releasing carbon into the atmosphere prematurely, where it forms CO2, contributing to global warming. In the 2004 election McGuinty promised there would be no more new logging commitment until a land use plan was in place. This is yet another broken promise from that campaign.
Keep the carbon where it is stored in trees and the soil. this will help us fight climate change.

Black Day for Office of Governor General
At the end of Michaelle Jean's term the we must have a new Governor General. This Canadian needs to have a fuller knowledge and understanding of the constitutional role of the office and the intricacies of the Parliamentary constitutional precedent. The person must also ensure the decision is open and transparent.

Two Great Statements
Today in the Q&A Mr Duceppe said " Mr. Harper has been pulling a lot of rabbits out of his hat lately. We need a Prime Minister no a magician."
Harper "I am not a Dictator"
Mr. Harper also attended a number of international meetings to deal with the global crisis that his Government had not for seen during the election. At each of those meeting with the G 8, G20 and APEC members the message was clear, we have a world wide economic crisis and all Government should implement a stimulus package, not make financial cuts to programmes, not become protectionist and deficit was expected. I clearly remember Mr. Harper in Peru standing at the podium stating he foresaw a deficit as necessary along with a stimulus package.
Mr. Harper also stated after the election he would work in a co-cooperative consultative way with the other parties to make the minority government work. The content and manner of the financial statement delivery is diametrically opposite to his recent statements and opposes the commitments he made in public to our international trading partners. The financial statement included no stimulus package; it did include cuts to programmes and was not built on cooperation with the other elected members of parliament. Instead he used the opportunity to attack things he did not like, such as, pay equity, collective bargaining, and unions.
In the past three elections Mr. Harper has not gained the support and votes of a majority of Canadians and only in the last two elections did his party get more seats. When Martin’s Liberal Government was in a minority position and asked to go to the polls he wrote to the Governor General asking her to ask the opposition to form a government before calling an election. Now he claims it is undemocratic for parties to form a coalition and rule. Yet the other three parties represent 64% of Canadians voters. The election was so recent that for the Governor General not to request the other parties to see if they can form a coalition would not be acceptable and is constitutionally the correct thing to do. He had the nerve to stop parliament and prevent votes because he was not getting his own way. What right does he have to stop our elected representatives from fulfilling their constitutional rights??
This man has shown a total disregard for the majority of Canadian voters. He has shown disrespect toward the institution of parliament by continually being obstreperous, belligerent toward the majority our elected representatives.
