Stephen Maher asks why nobody seems to be covering a possible influence-peddling scandal with connections to Harper and the PMO.
Well, perhaps it's because even in his own story, he doesn't get to the point about speculating on possible PMO influence-peddling until paragraph 13. There's all sorts of other juicy stuff in the story, too, about vacations on yachts, jobs with connected construction companies, Revenue Canada officials fired after tax evasion prosecutions, and so on. The PM and his PMO have some 'splainin to do, I think.
And with all the trashing of the CBC that we are hearing from the Harper Conservatives lately, it makes me speculate about what explosive and scandalous news stories Radio Canada just might be working on these days...
Borrowed from: CathiefromCanada
[Cathie, my vote: it's NOT WRONG to speculate given these facts! - BC Mary.]
I'm keenly interested in the cocaine connection to Bassi and the Legislature Raids. How is Cirilio Lopez connected to that???
This is what his good buddy El Gordo did also. Ram it through, who cares about the consequence, who cares about Rights, just do it. It'll take years to go through the courts when challenged, by then the damage is done.
BC Rail, HEU contracts,TILMA, NAFTA, Teacher contracts, lieberal mla's crimes. Upcoming CETA which is detrimental to every citizen in this country as well as "Canadian's resources", which are being undermined every day.
Put what you know out there and foundation could come to you.
BIG NEWS: Quebec and Ontario don't want to pay for Harper-Toews (read: the cop-lobby) anti crime lunacy, while crime rates plummet.
In the UK policing is being rationalized based on the recent O'Connor Report. Their cop-lobby is fighting legitimate calls for a 10% reduction in cops and redeployment back to patrol oriented policing. We should be following UK practices rather than subsidizing special interests.
FYI: Vancouver's police deliver 600 patrol cops while another 800 do largely desk work with little or no Public Safety value. At any given time only 1 cop is available to serve each 7,000 of his wage payers. Someone take a fricking hint.
Power to bloggers out there who do write what they think. We are the 99%.
