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.”

ConCalls: Testify, Born Again Christian #RoboCon

Andrew Prescott’s immunity deal is a strange development. The loyal party worker and born-again Christian had for two years categorically denied any knowledge of or involvement in the robocall affair. But why do innocent people need immunity deals? One of the people Prescott professed his innocence to was Michael Sona.

Testify!

“I looked Andrew dead in the eyes outside church. He was in his car in the parking lot. I asked him if he knew anything. He said, ‘I don’t know anything.’ That’s why I defended him when I went on the CBC. I took him at his word.”

Testify!

Sources say that just before the Calgary floods cancelled the CPC convention, Prescott had made the same claim to a friend — that he was innocent of any involvement in the robocalls. At the time of that conversation, Prescott was angry because the party would not give him credentials as a blogger as they had at previous conventions.

Testify! Try not to lie.

ConCalls: No Charges Despite New Prescott #RoboCon Information

After giving some immunity to a man who either lied to me, or to Elections Canada’s investigators, Canada’s election agency has no new charges to announce against the perpetrators of 2011′s Guelph or national election fraud robocalls.

Andrew Prescott’s information fingers the already charged Michael Sona, and the exiled Ken Morgan who is living in Kuwait. Prosecutors will have to decide if he is telling them the truth, or if he was telling me the truth when he told me in an email conversation he’d asked me to share on my blog last year:

Feel free to think whatever you may… however, know that pretty much every point you touched on in your e-mail is wildly incorrect. Specifically, your assumption that I know anything about whatever happened on a local OR national scale.

You are wrong. Period.

That’s an odd person to give immunity to.

Soudas was Resign-Fired #HarperFired #cdnpoli

It happens with plenty of Harperites. They Resign, no wait, they were Fired. Depending on who you are, there’s a different tale of what caused the undesirable to fall under the Harper Omni-Bus.

Fired.

Resigned.
Soudas Another Harperite Fired/Resigned #cdnpoli

Nigel Wright who worked in the Prime Minister’s Office until last year was also Resign-Fired.
Fired.

Resigned.

Michael Sona was Resign-Fired too. Maybe this needs a name or hashtag? #HarperFired?
Resigned.

Fired.

Soudas All By Himself

Soudas

I think Rob Anders would have been a better choice for Finance Minister than Joe Oliver.

UPDATE: And he’s under the bus

Governing in Secret #cdnpoli

The only photographs of the swearing in at Canada’s Governor’s General residence were provided by Harper’s photographers. Is he at war?

Worry not, the media was able to extract an interview with the most talkative and intelligible Conservative on the scene.
