To Inquire, or Not To Inquire, Don’t Ask The Question

The latest Coyne article seems to be self defeating in its thesis.

“It’s not evident what contribution another public inquiry would make,” opines Coyne.

For one thing, we could have an inquiry to demonstrate that for Coyne. Or we could for once listen to what First Nations people want out of the Canadian government, rather than what a mainstream newspaper columnist in Toronto wants for First Nations people. The act of the federal government doing what First Nations want over what white people in Ontario want, would be a step in the right direction to healing some of the rifts that Coyne mentions in his column.

Made In Canada Scam

The Harper Conservative party promised a Made in Canada plan to address climate change, in response to backing out of Kyoto. That plan never came, which was no surprise to people paying attention to their true agenda of high pollution at the expense of our health and climate.

A spokesman for Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq declined to answer questions about the memo directly. “Our government is committed to protecting the environment while keeping the Canadian economy strong,” spokesman Ted Laking said in a statement.

You may recall Lying Leona from the howler of a lie she told about Canada’s coal plants.

ConCalls: Insufficient Investigation for #RoboCon

A lawyer central to the Federal Court challenge of election fraud in 2011, has made a list of deficiencies in the Elections Canada Commish’s report.

What led the Commish Cote to ignore obvious evidence and conclusions. Hopefully it’s not a factor of being appointed by Stephen Harper, but any reason still leaves Canadians with an unsolved crime. The Commish failed to carry out his duty to protect Canadian elections from crime.

The Commissioner explains the purpose of his investigation this way:

The purpose of the investigation was to determine one thing: whether there was enough evidence to recommend to the Director of Public Prosecutions that charges be laid for violations of the Canada Elections Act in relation to nuisance calls or calls providing incorrect poll location information outside the electoral district of Guelph.

However, as set out in s. 509 of the Canada Elections Act (the “Act”), the Commissioner’s mandate is actually much broader than this – He is charged with the duty “to ensure that [the] Act is complied with and enforced.”

Canada PetroState vs. United States of America

Americans hear this on their news last night.
“Feds Issue Tighter Regulations For Trains Hauling Highly-Flammable Crude”

Canadians are told this of their explosive oil in unsafe train cars.
“B.C. municipality chaffs at railways’ requirement for secrecy about dangerous cargos traveling through town”

You have to wonder if the Harper Conservatives really don’t give a shit if they vapourize a few more Quebecers. Will your town be next?

ConCalls: Commish Waves White Flag in #RoboCon #elxnfraud Investigation

Despite audio evidence of widespread illegal robocalls, the Commissioner of Elections Canada has announced “no offenses committed”!

Canadians have had a heaping helping of obvious crime going unpunished, where Conservatives are the apparent benefactors.

I sadly predicted this ludicrous situation with a satirical piece I wrote last year that many people mistook for reality.

Among the bewildering improbable findings by the Commish are this:
“It is useful to note, moreover, that the data gathered in the investigation does not lend support to the existence of a conspiracy or conspiracies to interfere with the voting process (see, for example, sections 1.3 and 4.3).”

A Federal Court Judge ruled the opposite! He found fraud was likely in multiple ridings, which as we know from the highly “secure” CIMS database, requires CPC HQ authorization to be available in multiple ridings. Local staff do not have access to riding information elsewhere in the country, so there would have to be a conspiracy for identical fraud to be happening in more than one riding, as the Federal Court ruled.

Also this from Andrew Coyne:

Someone, that is, committed massive electoral fraud, in a way that could only benefit the Conservative party and making use of proprietary party information. But they did it without the party’s knowledge or participation.

Or what else can one conclude from Thursday’s ruling by Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley

Apparently Elections Canada can conclude what they did after 2008’s malicious robocalls in the S-GI riding of B.C., and drop the whole thing because investigations are harrrrd.

PMO: RCMP is Deeply Offended You’re Not Buying Their Crap

“Come on!” – RCMP

The Canadian people know when they’re being fed smoke and mirrors, and things taste very smoky and shiny right now.

“Thanks to the RCMP, we know that senior officials in our government were conspiring to cover up tens of thousands of dollars in (seemingly) improper payments to senators. The internal emails and interview transcripts published by the RCMP show Wright, Duffy and a host of lawyers and senators doing all kinds of things they would never do if they didn’t think they could keep it secret.”

“The way our legal system is set up, we will never know why the Mounties decided not to proceed unless it comes out in court if the force proceeds with charges against Mike Duffy, which is expected in the coming weeks. But it’s up to politicians, not police or judges, to tell us how it is that the prime minister’s chief of staff is able to make a secret payment to a sitting legislator without facing criminal prosecution.

There is no way that should be legal.”
