Is Harper driving us back into recession?

Canadian PoliticsWell the numbers for February are out and they show that the Canadian economy shrank in the month of February. Given that Harper has been crowing about how good the economy is because of his stewardship, this would be a sign that that stewardship isn't as good as Harper has been leading us to believe.

Further proof Harper and his followers don't believe in democracy.

Canadian PoliticsIt would seem that Rob Anders has surfaced and is upset that the opposition parties are trying to defeat Conservatives. It would seem from this that Anders doesn't under stand how democracy works, that indeed the opposition parties will try to ensure that the ruling party doesn't return to power. Of course Anders is to be forgiven about this attitude since his own party had pretty much forsaken democracy in his own nomination process that he probably believes that he is the chosen one.

Be careful what you ask for - part II

Canadian PoliticsSubtitled why a Harper majority would be bad for the Conservative party. Now we know that a Harper majority would be a disaster for Canada, but what isn't as well known is the damage to the Conservative brand that a Harper majority would do.

Be careful what you ask for...

Canadian Politics... you might get it. So the Grits have taken down the ad with the Harper "misquote". The problem for Harper and his Conservatives is that Harper has a big mouth and there's plenty of other quotes that the Liberals can use to beat Harper over the head with his disdain for public health care.

Ann Coulter

Canadian PoliticsInstead of trying to shout down Coulter, we should be giving her national air time. Why you might ask? Well, if her comments were given a national airing, along with all the Harper Tory flapping seals cheering her on, the damage to the Conservative brand outside of Alberta would be impressive.

Hey...

Canadian Politics... anonymous Conbot war room commentators who think that our forces don't have to follow the Geneva conventions when it comes to the Taliban better get on over to Esprit de Corps Magazine and correct them on this. After all, they're just a bunch of retired soldiers and what do they know?

So we have a new premier.

Alberta PoliticsThis past weekend the members of the Alberta Progressive Conservatives elected a new leader. Since they're the party in power, Ed Stelmach will become premier. Of the three choices between Ted Morton, Jim Dinning and Ed Stelmach. Stelmach was probably the least offensive non-Calgary candidate. The fact that Stelmach wasn't from Calgary was probably a factor in the final ballot.

Turner reports on Harper approach to leadership.

Canadian PoliticsNow a grain of salt is needed given the source, but if Garth Turner is to be believed, our suspicions about how Harper runs the government are indeed true. It would appear that the Tory caucus isn't allowed to discuss anything. Policy is presented to them as a fait-accompli and any discussion is quashed. So another nail is driven into Canada's New Government's promise to be more open and accountable. Harper doesn't even feel accountable to his own MP's, let alone party members or the people of Canada.

Ok, so I've been busy...

Alberta PoliticsBetween work and my cadet commitments, I've had little time to blog the past couple of weeks. So I've missed the federal Tories totally messing up our foreign affairs. This is, of course, what I've come to expect from conservatives when it comes to international relations. Tory black and white thinking doesn't work very well in the messy world of international diplomacy. For now I will leave the foundering federal Tories and look more at their Alberta Cousins. For those of you who live outside of Alberta, the Alberta Tories are in the middle of electing a new leader. A field of eight lackluster candidates have been stomping around the province trying to engage the enthusiasm of their party's members.
