Conservatives Failed to Protect Privacy

The Liberals record? Not much better.

“I can’t answer the question about the former government, what their reasons were,” said Sajjan, also noting he does not believe any of the metadata inadvertently shared could have ended up in the hands of any countries beyond the Five Eyes.

End Energy East

This is also how I feel about Energy East and similar pipeline projects. In the national discussion about our energy and transportation network future, if you don’t put chemistry before a constructed economy, the economy will fail.

Laying Down A Deadly Bluff

For ages now Canadians have been conditioned to accept that we “need” more pipelines to move more oil. Otherwise we’ll continue to exhaust train crews and have bombtrains in every town.

Now it slips out that the plan is for oil to grow even though we need to #LeaveItInTheGround to have a chance at not exceeding our atmosphere’s “carbon budget” which determines if climate change causes mass flooding and extinctions. This will happen during our lifetimes, if we don’t build the alternative transportation systems now.

Looking Back At the Conservatives’ Campaign

I wrote this on October 1, 2015, but never finished it:

Let’s examine the Conservative’s campaign thus far:
It began with them showing ads where men are being drowned, as an example of how they’ll protect us, but no one else will.
In the middle it had one of their candidates quit for being caught pissing into a coffee mug in a stranger’s kitchen (before dumping it and replacing the mug into the sink).
The PM suggested women with religious headwear may not be allowed to work in the public service, reminding me of the RCMP turban furor of decades ago.

That seems oh so long ago, as the yoke of Conservative oppression has lifted, and the yoke of Liberal oppression ;) settles into place instead.

Rona Ambrose – Smoke From The Ears

Anyone else smell pants burning? Maybe it’s something else.

Hold on, you’re about to get whiplash. I guess having an empty head is a biological advantage since your brain doesn’t rattle around when you change direction this quickly.

Not even Google can keep up with her position.

Health Minister Rona Ambrose says she is “outraged” by the Supreme Court of Canada decision that expands the definition of medical marijuana beyond dried leaves, to include cannabis oils, teas, brownies and other forms of the drug.”

and now…

“In the news

As Health Minister Rona Ambrose made it clear that the Harper Government was not going to legalize marijuana, much less support …”

I used to be fairly anti-marijuana. I’ve since learned that the regulation of it, far beyond that provided for tobacco, makes no sense. Every week that passes without a legislation change, causes more injustice in our country.
