It has become absolutely clear why he Harper government needs the F-35 fighters that are more suited for ground attacks than defending Canada from foreign invaders, and with that a bunch of new prisons to put the dissidents in.
The Harper government is at war. Unfortunately for the citizens of Canada, a once proud, free, sovereign, democratic, progressive, first-world country that was without a doubt one of the best and most peaceful, beautiful, desirable places in the world to live is at war with its rulers.
All that was Canada is now changing, as Harper declares war on the very sovereignty of Canada itself: the trashing of democracy and the mockery and marginalizing of the legal and electoral systems, and abuse of the political traditions of Canada.
Canadians see the rapid dismantling every day of guaranteed rights and freedoms, such as rights of privacy, native rights, provincial rights, womans rights, etc.
The Harper government has declared total war on the environment and the natural world, putting Canada at war with science and scientific knowledge, in effect trying to reverse the rest of the worlds efforts to reduce mans toxic footprint on our home earth.
Harper has even declared war on peace, turning his back on Canadas traditional role as peacekeepers, turning instead to aggression and gunboat diplomacy. He wants to be a war prime minister, but is nothing more than a regressive tin pot dictator.
Canada used to be one of the most respected countries in the world; now it doesnt even rate a seat at the UN anymore. We arent even wanted at the table for anything to do with the environment, global warming, or any other issue that has to do with environmental progress, or human rights, for that matter.
Harper has declared war on Canadas future our very sovereignty and democracy with future governments not even able to implement laws to improve, change, or return to more sane environmental protection laws without the danger of Canada being sued for multi-billions of dollars. Amazingly enough, this is all being done behind closed doors with a Communist dictatorship and a Canadian dictator, with no debate with our elected MPs.
Harper is turning control of Canada over to a Communist dictatorship that he ranted and railed against just a couple years ago as human rights abusers and worse. Now he wants to get right into bed with them.
In Australia, smarter, more rational leaders have said no to these nation-busting, all-inclusive trade agreements.
Any legitimacy this government ever had is gone. The Governor General should have dissolved this government with the outrage that was Bill C-38, but it is obvious that, if Canadians expect any help from that outdated joke, we will be waiting a long time.
Canadians need to shut this country down until the government is dissolved or an election is called and the Canada China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPA) is a part of the Conservative election platform.
