“Let's hope China rips up that 30 year secret Corporate trade deal over this incident!
But, no matter, the PMO will now fit the China Panda Bear, from the Toronto Zoo, into the two seats that had been reserved for these two Chinese reporters.
The northern folk will be thrilled to see the Panda Bear -- seeing Harper, not so much!
On his first "photo-op" northern trip, the PMO dressed Harper up in a Conservative "Blue & White" Canada jacket, put him on a ATV and he promptly drove it through a known bird habitat area several times: http://bit.ly/1jNZg9U before the official photographer got it just right right.
On the 2nd "photo-op" trip, Harper did some target practice with a WWII Lee Enfield rifle: http://bit.ly/12ukgff -- Harper's official photographer would not show the "target" being used, as crafted by the PMO, which likely was a marks-a-lot drawn figure of Trudeau on some cardboard!
So, one surmises, this time around, the PMO will sit Harper on that $600,000 "stealth" snowmobile: http://bit.ly/1pF6L5K , have him drive it along the coast line while looking out over the Arctic water and trying to spot any of those dastardly Russian submarines that may be floating around up there!
Come to think of it, food prices are extremely high up North, maybe Harper can tell them that there will be some cheap EU cheese coming soon from that EU trade deal and that he will airdrop some up there when it arrives in Canada!”

“Oh, a former RCMP member, eh!
Surely he must have quickly figured out the CSIS/CSEC connection to this crime!
Surely he knows that CSIS runs very skilled building "break-in" units and this crime scene has political motivation written all over it.
Therefore CSIS surfaces immediately to the top of the suspect list because Harper will use any and all government resources to go after his enemies and right now, Trudeau is enemy number one.
It would have been easy for CSIS to determine, from surveillance, that there was no home security and if the truth were known, the house would have been compromised by CSIS during its vacancy prior to the Trudeau's moving in and CSEC would be supplying all of the background intelligence necessary on Trudeau and his family's activities and movements.
This is a classical destabilization attempt and Harper is a classically disturbed politician!”

“This Vice article is bluster fluff.
Harper took (I mean lost) $3 billion off the National Defense budget which was then stuffed into a black ops budget used to bring CSEC spy operations up to NSA standards.
That meant that $3 billion went to NSA contractors in the U.S. to supply all the latest hi-tech spy equipment to fill that beautiful billion dollar Spy Palace in Ottawa and to stuff more spy globes in the Leitrim ON gathering facility.
So, with $4 billion in Spy toys, Harper can't even pick off the Muslim Canadians kids that are being recruited out of Calgary and Edmonton to fight in Middle East Jihad's: http://bit.ly/1A5P1Gd -- how the heck do you think he can collect intelligence in the Middle East!
The U.S. just uses Canada as a branch plant puppet and they know everything that Canada's Spy operation is doing, before they do it!
And the U.S. Military's spy satillites and ground penetrating radars knew of the Hamas tunnels the day the first cement trucks drove up to them and passed the information onto Israel who then "sat" on the tunneling until they could use them as justification to bomb the Hamas citizen populations using their famed Dahiya doctrine which dictates that they bomb large apartment buildings to kill innocent citizens to try and force a backlash against the Hamas controlled government.
When the war criminal known as Henry Kissinger elevates Harper to a "global statesman": http://natpo.st/V2WEdb , then Israel is in real trouble!”

“Ah, what a surprise that is -- buyer's remorse!
Let's think outside the box for just one moment.
If anyone thinks that the U.S. would stand idly by while China pulls cheap "heavy crude" out of Alberta, tanker it across the ocean, refine it in China and then distribute it cheaply into industries which would accelerate China into being the #1 global economic power, then let's talk of building a highrise on a sand dune!
The U.S. is in a full scale war with the new BRICS (Brazil/Russia/India/China/South Africa) economic alliance -- thus the take down of Russia, blocking China from South Sea offshore oil and gas fields and reigning economic havoc on South America and South African countries to destabilize that alliance.
So, the U.S. laid a "oil pit" trap and China walked right into it -- all the U.S. needed to do was block pipelines out of Alberta and then watch "China" sweat!
Heck, CNOOK, in 2005, tried buying UNOCAL in the U.S. for $18 million and hired Goldman Sachs to broker the deal -- the U.S. Congress said "NOT IN OUR BACK YARD"!
So, Goldman contacted their ex-executive, Mark Carney, at the Bank of Canada, and had the path cleared for CNOOK to buy NEXXEN at $15 Billion which had the U.S. government laughing as they could block XL to prevent China from getting cheap oil.
Ok, let's go back inside the box and write up disinformation articles such as this and then live happily, ever after!”
Aug 18, 2014 at 15:15:00
“Oh, does one suppose that they were banking on Harper's "PIPELINES" to get the cheap "heavy oil" product across the ocean so they could make money on it at the "state" refinery level!
Alberta Oil is not under any control from any Canadian government(s) as it is controlled from the U.S..
If you think the U.S. Government is going to stand "idly" by and watch China become the #1 economic power on the planet by pulling cheap heavy oil out of Alberta, then a study of the banking, oil and stock market powers in New York will set your thinking straight straight.”

“The writer should put this in perspective.
Trudeau has 33 MP's and has to organize 300+ riding's for the 2015 election and there will be several unfavorable people attempting to get nominated to try and ride Trudeau's coattails into power in 2015.
And, Harper has set up a "war room" combining several of his 100+ PMO staff and CPC party staff geared specifically to clandestinely supporting questionable or unsavory Liberal candidates seeking nomination in some of those riding's in order to create doubt and controversy over Trudeau's leadership leading into the 2015 election.
The entire godforsaken Canadian media have failed to challenge the Liberal "stature" of the B.C. provincial Liberal Party and the Liberal "stature" of the recently elected Quebec provincial Liberal Party even though the leadership component of each of those two party's have been co-opted by the Harper Conservatives.
Harper planted two personnel from his inner circle into Christy Clark's administration.
Harper appointed Couillard to CSIS oversight in 2010 along with the now Panama jailed Dr. Arthur Porter: http://bit.ly/1gdXiM0 and Harper was just up in Quebec City handing out $7.5 billion worth of 2015 "vote coins" in that province: http://huff.to/1lxBNto .
So, the writer shouldn't be amplifying any Liberal riding problems as "political opportunist's" will be "do up" corruption in order to get nominated within them!”

“Oh, did you forget the NAFTA 80's period where Conrad Black achieved a 53% control over Canadian print media which directly led to the acceptance of NAFTA -- Black even hosted a NAFTA "after party" attended by Mulroney and Reagan!
Have you checked the editorial column's in Postmedia and SUN Media papers in that past year which have almost daily lashed out at Trudeau!
If this writer has a Liberal bias, then it is badly needed to counter the hard core Conservative doctrine that has swept up from the U.S. into Canada and use media control to put Cons in power and keep them there.”

“Oh, one would think that Kim Campbell held that ranking since she was PM when your "Conservative Party of Canada" suffered the worst defeat in Canadian political history when the angry Canadian voter reduced their previous 156 seat majority down to just two elected seats in the 1993 election!!!!”
Mulroney, board chair at Quebecor Inc., interfered with Marois's campaign by conning poor old Pierre Karl Péladeau, lead shareholder in Quebecor Inc., into running provincially and thereby keeping the Parti Québécois in power and use them to dilute Trudeau votes in 2015.
But alas, Pierre Karl fell of his bike and crashed, as did Marois.
Harper stashed Couillard on CSIS oversight along side the now jailed Dr. Arthur Porter: http://bit.ly/1gdXiM0 .
When the Quebec voters see that Couillard is connected to both Mulroney and Harper and that Couillard doctored for the Saudi's: http://bit.ly/1hpboyS , they might just be confused and opt to vote for Trudeau in 2015.”

“"But now the Liberals have been reborn under Justin Trudeau and the New Democrats have roots in the province like never before."
Boy, did Mr. Grenier fall of the wagon on that statement.
Brian Mulroney is in charge of the 2015 federal election in Quebec.
Mulroney is board chairman at Quebecor Inc..
His 2015 Plan "A" was to drop Pierre Karl Péladeau late into the recent Quebec election in the hopes of keeping the Parti Québécois in power, provincially, and use that to DILUTE/SPLIT the Liberal vote in Quebec in 2015.
But Pierre Karl fell off his bike and went down with Marois.

“Yeah, he steered $7 Billion into GM coffers by purchasing GM shares at $50+ per share in 2009.
GM promptly took the Canadian taxpayer cash and kept their U.S. dealerships afloat with it.
GM then declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S., changed their name slightly to get rid of outstanding lawsuits and then came out under a new company name.
GM then yanked an Ontario car plant back to Michigan in 2013 which put 2000 Canadian plant workers out into the streets -- Harper laughed because they were unionized workers and it would help get Hudak elected.
Harper then ordered Flaherty to cash in those GM shares at $37/per share in November, 2013, rack up a huge loss and use the cash to cook the books for the 2014/15 budgets with that cash.
Flaherty had enough of Harper and then walked out on him immediately after the 2014 budget.
Now, the Toronto area GM car dealerships have launched a law suit against GM saying they didn't provide any financial assistance to their dealerships during the financial crisis: http://huff.to/1qRWnZK .
So, if you think Flaherty steered something in 2008/09, then it was a Brinks armored truck, loaded with $10 billion of Canadian taxpayer cash, down to GM HQ's in Michigan!”

“The official news organ of the Conservative Party of Canada, SUN News, will now spin this as Trudeau, even with his wealth, is so irresponsible and negligent that he cannot even protect his family with home security -- how could he protect a nation if he becomes PM!
This is serious and it smells of a classic CSIS/CSEC sting operation and Harper is very capable of using them reign terror on Trudeau's family while he was out of town.
That house was under surveillance, it was determined to have no electronic security and CSIS could walk through the door if it was locked/unlocked as they have skilled break-in teams for that purpose.
And reporting that "nothing was taken" is a joke, because if it was CSIS that entered the house then something in the house interior will have been compromised
Trudeau can expect a cavalcade of these attack operations from now until the election.
The PMO/CSIS tandem targeted Liberal MP John McKay and learned of his disenchanted over Trudeau's stand on abortion, using electronic surveillance methods.
Then the PMO learned McKay was giving a speech to a Liberal gathering in the Ottawa area and sent two "clean cut" young conservatives to that gathering.
When McKay walked off the stage, both youths approached him asking him what he thought of Trudeau's stance on abortion and secretly recorded McKay's now infamous "bozo eruption moment" comment and the recording was immediately sent to CTV, anonymously.
Harper runs a crime syndicate!”

“"Given the history, therefore, robocalls fills out a pattern. Setting partisan spin aside, Thursday’s judgment by Superior Court Justice Gary Hearn can have offered little comfort to Conservative strategists. The judge appears to have all but discounted the testimony of a key Crown witness, Sona’s former Tory colleague, Andrew Prescott. More importantly, Hearn found the evidence suggests Sona probably did not act alone. So much for the rogue agent. The hunt for other culprits will continue apace."
They may hunt, but they will not find anyone else in the Guelph robocall
Marty Burke, who ran that Con office was moved to Kuwait and the PMO would have used taxpayer money to get him there and maintain it for as long as necessary.
The IT guy, Andrew Prescott, assigned to the Guelph riding by the PMO, was granted immunity by an highly incompetent crown counsel and a coerced Elections Canada investigator.
How could the government grant immunity to Prescott who was in that riding office at 2AM and logged into the RackNine internet website and the robocall package was launched at 10AM by Sona.
It was Prescott who culled the Liberal voters off of the CIMS database at CPC HQ's in Ottawa, stripped the phone numbers out of the data and prepped it for Sona to feed into a RackNine robocall message.
Sona did not prepare the words used in that Robocall message, as it was likely prepared at the PMO.
Ford was Flaherty's "best friend" and Flaherty even got into a shouting match with Jason Kenney in a parliamentary hallway over defending Ford from Kenney's comments that Ford should resign and get help with his addictions.
But, Harper's going to be in a real quandary, if he is still in power, should former Liberal PM John Turner, also at the funeral, passes on: http://bit.ly/1uFKjPw -- it is guaranteed that his funeral will be a low budget movie!”

“"Michael Sona, the ex-Conservative staffer who was found guilty on Thursday of taking part in a scheme to suppress opposition votes in the Ontario riding of Guelph in the last federal election, was 22 years old when he broke the law."
Chantel Hebert is away off the mark on this assessment.
Conservative MP, Rob Anders, once stated that "get them while they are young and TRAIN THEM UP".
Sona was an easy victim to brainwash by the PMO.
Does Hebert really think that Michael SONA wrote these words that were packaged into the RackNine robocalls that Sona pressed the "launch button" on at 10AM on vote day in 2011!
Sona did not compose these words in that robcall meesage;
"This is an automated message from Elections Canada. Due to a projected increase in voter turnout, your poll location has been changed. Your new voting location is at the Old Quebec Street Mall, at 55 Wyndham Street North. Once again, your new poll location is at the Old Quebec Street Mall, at 55 Wyndham Street North. If you have any questions, please call our hotline at 1-800-443-4456. We apologize for any inconvenience this may caused. (French version recorded in another woman's voice follows."
That wording came out of Jenni Bryne's office in the PMO.
At 2AM that morning, Andrew Prescott was logged in to RackNine from his Guelph office computer and prepping the phone list for that robocall.
Sona was lone fall guy as there would be backlash over that message!”

“The writer is a little weak on this article.
Let's take a look at that Brandon-Souris by-election riding.
Internal party polling results showed an extremely close race -- the incumbent Conservative won by just 360 votes.
Prior to that election, Harper, personally, dropped vote-coins in Manitoba.
Harper personally wrote a letter to voters in that riding.
Jenni Byrne, Harper's deputy chief of staff, managed that riding campaign, set up the communications command and control center for it and even spent the the weekend in the riding ahead of the vote day.
Byrne spends her entire day, and is paid a 6-figure taxpayer paid salary, working solely on heading up the 2015 election and coordinates all riding level activity from her "DAY JOB" just down from Harper's office in the PMO.
No party in Canadian political history has ABUSED tax dollars to the extreme extent as Harper has -- he devotes large numbers of personnel in the PMO and PCO for the sole purpose of fighting opposition parties with attack programs right down to seeding disinformation in the SUN Media chain and social media.
Former Conservative MP, Brent Rathgeber, who left the party over "muzzling and/or scripting of backbenchers" by the PMO, said this of the PMO.
"He attributed the problem to the “young, really aggressive, really motivated, hyper-partisan” staffers in the PMO who believe “digging up dirt” on Trudeau is part of their job."
Well, he was wrong, a swath of PMO personnel works solely on "digging up dirt"!”

“"For Barlow, it is time for the Harper government to come clean with Canadians."
Oh, what a powerful statement that is -- if Barlow even thinks that a pathological liar like Stephen Joseph Harper would ever "come clean" over any of his massive numbers of corruptions, she needs to step down at once!
She would be better off prepping an election fraud website where people can easily record complaints on Conservative party robocalls in the 2015 election and get enough articles into the papers ahead of 2015 that alerts the Liberal and NDP voters of that reporting capability.
In fact, if Barlow has the resources, simply write up an Android/Iphone app that quickly records phone calls which would then enable everyone to see and hear the content of these Conservative robocall messages or all robocall messages from all party's.
If that recording app was out there, it would prevent these robocalls from taking place.
Come to think of it, RackNine in Edmonton is the main spinner of this Conservative robocalls -- they have safe haven in Alberta as this pathetic province has not changed its provincial Conservative government in 45 continuous years.
Humorously, MP Rob Anders just lost his job in the candidate election in a Calgary riding.
He, too, did robcalling in that riding, bashing his opponent, Ron Liepert, and even used Jason Kenney to do the "voice-overs" in those calls.
Anders lost and Liepert ended up telling Kenney to "KEEP HIS NOSE IN HIS OWN BUSINESS".”

“Sona really isn't too bright and his selection of an incompetent lawyer is proof of that.
Had he went and saw Toronto lawyer, Rocco Galati, who took Harper's Marc Nadon's Supreme Court appointment all the way to the Supreme court and won, Galati would have taken down the lying Andrew Prescott who was the IT man in that riding office who filtered out the Liberal voters from the CIMS voter database at CPC HQ's in Ottawa which Sona then handed the phone numbers over to RackNine in Edmonton.
That very fact that Sona's lawyer has not attacked Prescott or the Guelph riding manager who fled to Kuwait makes these court proceedings highly suspicious.
It is very likely that this was a "lone shooter" take down that was scripted by CPC and the PMO who will duly reward Sona after the Judge gives him a slap on the wrist in October over being a first time offender.
But, maybe 6 months in jail would allow Sona enough time to write a book and tell us what really went on at that Guelph riding office!
One wonders what Sona's incompetent lawyer will now do when Sona has to make a statement before the judge at the time of his sentencing -- if he says nothing, then this whole investigation and trial is a scripted CON job!”
