Pay To Access Harper

A lot has been said recently about people paying to have access to the Prime Minister.

Ling has said:

Perhaps it’s too obliging to ask the Harpercons about their exploitation of ISIS propaganda in this campaign?

Atwood has said (to the apparent chagrin of the Nat Po):

The censored sections are significant, and accuse Stephen Harper of hiding “the two-million-dollar-donors to his party leadership race,” and make reference to Harper having given “four mutually exclusive answers” about the Duffy cover-up.

Angry Old Guy has said:

Maybe Novak and Perrin and the clowns in the PMO didn’t have the required money to access the PM with the timely news of Senator Duffy’s Wright-payoff in time to prevent him from misleading the House of Commons?

Political Advice From Conservatives

“If media insist on covering #DuffyTrial, then cover other political party scams as well. Stop protecting #NDP & #LPC” – Gail Dyer

“Basically Premier Brad Well has rightfully told Cdn. Media less talk about #DuffyTrial & more focus on our Cdn. Economy. #WellSaid.” – Bill Brasky

Premier Wall has focused mostly on oil energy, while totally neglecting Saskatchewan’s renewable energy resources.

Meanwhile a state known for its previous love of oil is moving on to greener energy pastures.

#elxn42 underway

Although political blog traffic goes way up during an election campaign, I haven’t put anything on my blog since the writ dropped. That’s partly because I have better things to do than analyze an election campaign that is too bloody long (unless it is 140 characters at a time on Twitter). Maybe I’ll add more in three weeks when it’s a more reasonable time to start talking about election day.

Hands up if you think the Cons will take illegal donations and overspend again.
*shows hand*

This is also the first election in 9 years that I don’t intend to work for Elections Canada so I may volunteer to scrutineer instead.

We Are Not Charmaine Borg, We Are The Conservatives

Ms. Borg is an NDP MP, and is most definitely not one of these Conservative trained seals.

If you show too much independent thought, you must leave the Conservative Collective.

Ignorance Means Power For Conservatives

A cringe-worthy tweet explains the Conservative mindset in running the election campaign early before school gets back. Keep kids in the dark, and disengaged so wise old people can continue to run things for them. Poppa Harper knows best.

Aron’s autobiography:
“Conservative. Pro Oil & Gas. Man made Climate Change is a farce. Anti Trudeau / Wynne and the biased MSM [Mainstream media].”

Starting the campaign abnormally early is a ploy to burn through campaign budgets of competing parties, rather than making ideas and people the focus of the campaign.

Oil Is Not A Four Letter Word

Coal is a four letter word, however.

Perhaps Wall is a bit touchy about fossil fuels because Saskatchewan produces more greenhouse gases per person than any other Canadian province [link added], and is one of only three provinces whose emissions have risen since 1990. The province contains only 1 per cent of the country’s population, but produces a disproportionate 10 per cent of national emissions.

Saskatchewan recorded the highest deposit-paid bottle return rate in Canada (82 per cent) and largest wildfire detection camera system in North America, said the ministry.

Yet we had the worst wildfire season, perhaps ever, this Summer.

Until we get on top of the big industrial emissions we are going to have great trouble achieving the targets that have been set for the province,” said Coxworth.

“We are looking to beef up that part of our portfolio – with a quarter of our power production already renewable,” said Tremblay.

The ministry on Earth Day focused on what individuals can do in their everyday lives.

{Emphasis added, to highlight that what the ministry is doing is pushing responsibility for the problem off of themselves and onto the actions of individuals who cannot individually organize us into a more efficient system.}
