A former Mountie and CSIS operative thinks Harper’s so called anti-terrorism bill is scary and unnecessary.
Mr. Lavigne, 55, left government in 1999, but follows intelligence news closely.
He spent years tracking dangerous radicals without the powers the government wants to give to CSIS.
“I find it a little convenient that in the past few years that these radicalized people are the biggest threat to ever hit us,” he said. “There are more people dying because of drunk drivers or because of gang violence.”

Mr. Lavigne said the prime minister’s advisers must tell him that using inflammatory language increases the risk.
“When our leaders start talking about tentacles and jihadis and barbarians, it’s adding fuel to the fire. It’s actually increasing the likelihood of that happening.”
Mr. Lavigne said the prime minister’s language reminds him of fascist leaders like Mussolini and Franco.
“Some of these tactics are taken right out of the fascist playbook,” he said.
“They’re not crossing the line. They’re using the language to appeal to the emotions, which is one of the first stages. Disinformation being the second, which I think they also use. But they’re not fascist. I’m not saying the government’s fascist.”
“Don’t detain me.”
Ha. Ha. Don’t detain me, either.
To welcome Soudas and Adams into their party after all of the years of their Liberal-bashing, proves that they aren’t a Big-Tent, but rather a Motel Room-for-rent.
“Dimitri Soudas arrives with a handful, maybe perhaps boxes full, of information,” Graham told CTV News Channel. “Soudas has a lot of secrets. He tells people that. He knows a lot. He knows what went on in the Prime Minister’s Office. He knows a lot more about Stephen Harper than perhaps many around him.”
The common Canadian would raise an eyebrow or two at this news, if they gave a rat’s ass what Soudas will supposedly do for the Liberals.
This guy was Harper-Fired. He’s not trustworthy.
And Eve Adams is a bad driver, or a “driver from Hill“.
“What would Stompin’ Tom say to this?”
Hello out there, we’re on the air, it’s military time,
The camo’s out, let’s give a shout
They’re stopping every dime. Tension grows, & the fans are all insane, The jets roar, & Harper bores, it’s the good ol’ national shame.
Oh, the good ol’ national shame, it’s the best game you can change, and the best game you can change, is the good ol’ national shame.
I was fortunate to have seen Stompin’ Tom in 2002.
And yet our creepy Prime Minister wants this law:
Despite this being a possibility, i.e. the system makes a grave mistake:
When CSIS has a file on Manning, it’s no better than the FBI monitoring everyone for possible Communist tendencies.
Hapless Dean Del Mastro, the former Prime Ministerial Parliamentary Secretary is supposed to soon find out how long he’ll spend in jail away from his wife and baby child.
Here’s Harper’s legacy, as he’s attempted to plunge our country into darkness:
The group surveyed attitudes towards democracy and governance in interviews with 50,000 people in 28 countries. It found that Canada was among those nations most likely to support shuttering its legislatures. In fact, the study found that only the citizens of Paraguay, Peru, and Haiti were more likely to put their democracies in mothballs than Canadians.
Could these strange numbers explain why Canadians yawned when Stephen Harper was found in contempt of parliament, and immediately handed him a majority government?
“His long term goal is to do to Canada what the Progressive Conservative Party has done to Alberta for the last 40-plus years; turn it into a one-party petro-state where voting is the last priority on the to-do list. ”
Hilariously, author Macfarlane defends serial libeler Levant as someone who “uses facts”, in order to smear author Harris.
Fortunately, the NSA likely has a backup copy of this attempt to cover up CRA efforts to target charities.
