Canadians' Economic Priorities Shifting Away From Tories: Poll

Canadians' Economic Priorities Shifting Away From Tories: Poll

Commented Feb 22, 2014 at 22:05:16 in Canada Business

“These so called economics experts have increased the country's debt by 40%. Canadians are waking up to the fact that the words from their mouths don't come close to matching their actions. The sooner we're rid of these thieving scoundrels, the better off we'll be.”

“Obama is cutting the deficit. Controlling the debt is only an issue for Republicans when the President is a Democrat.”

Sheila Schultz on Nov 11, 2013 at 09:01:41

“Many of these congressional GOPs who cry about the deficit had no problem rubber-stamping W's needless Iraq War expenses so Haliburton could get profiteer with their no-bid contracts. W inherited a budget surplus from Clinton and turned it into a huge deficit. Remember, guys?”

“For everyone other than the most die hard Conservative/Harper Party supporter, watching the sad ship Steve circle the drain for the next two years is going to be the most delicious black comedy. For the HarplerCons, the denoument of this tragedy is going to be devastatingly painful. The Sona trial (ten days next June) is going to reveal a lot of what we suspect. Judge Mosely already ruled that the CIMS database was used in a widespread attempt to suppress the vote. If this was orchestrated in CPC headquarters, as Party Leader, Stephen Harper is the most culpable. Is he really the ignorant !d!ot about the workings in his own office that he claims to be in Question Period?”

“Canada’s last 3 fraud elections:

Harper cheated in 2006 with in-and-out fraudulent transactions (aka money laundering) to get around spending limits.

Harper cheated in 2008 by calling an illegal election.

Harper cheated in 2011 with misleading and deceptive Robo phone calls = voter suppression.

Stephen Harper is not our Prime Minister. Harper stole all three last elections. It’s much worse than we’ll ever know.

“The arc of this story is a narrative that can be applied to all of the dirty actions done by the harper party. From the in & out fraud to the robo-call voter suppression scheme and now this senate debacle, every time these incompetents try to cover up their crimes, their denials catch up with them eventually. The Teflon is off harper and this stink will stick.”

“we are assuming that the delagates at this convention actually care for the values the rest of us expect in a national leader. Chances are these CEO's and the other rich conservatives don't actually care about anything but power.”

“If you live near Guelph, come over to Wellington Brewery and try more of their offerings. A few times a year they make small batches of specialty brews they call Welly One-Offs. The best ones last year were a Chocolate Milk Stout and a Double IPA. Every Saturday between 1 and 4, you can visit and try a few samples. www.wellingtonbrewery.ca/

“As sad as this is, I just got a job as a cnc machinist for $12/hr thru a temp/recruiting agency. After 400 hours (ten weeks working 11pm-7am), I'll be hired by the company where I'm temping. Then I'll go another 3 months on probation at $15/hr. The current top rate is $18/hr, which I might reach in 9 mos. to a year. Move to Guelph and register at the 5 or 6 temp placement agencies. Some of the places you'll see for min. wage to $12/hr will blow your mind. I met one woman who was temping the same position for 18 months at $12 hoping to be hired by Belinda Stronach's Magna Corporation. Two thirds of this Guelph, Ontario plant's workers on the factory floor were employed as long term day labour thru temp agencies. How does that reconcile with Jobs, Growth, and Long term prosperity?”

“I've been in Guelph court every time this case was on the docket. A trial is set for ten days starting June 2, 2014. I expect a lot of subpoenas for testimony will be issued. Ten days is a lot of dedicated court time. This is no small thing. Judge Mosely already said there were concentrated voter suppression calls made in 200 ridings. If Sona's involvement in the Guelph calls can be proven to have been part of a national election day scheme, we'll find this was orchestrated in the Consevative Party Head Office. That' probably enough to have the party decertified. Scatter them to the wind as independents and let's have an election.”
