Taking the west out of the boy

Looks like Steve's new director of communications is having some effect. 

There was no "the West is finally in control" rhetoric this year at Steve's annual Calgary Stampede barbecue.

As reported by the Canadian Press here.
Freshly home from the G8 leaders meeting in Japan, Harper celebrated his third Calgary Stampede as prime minister Sunday among more than 800 party faithful and senior government members at his Calgary Southwest riding annual barbecue.
Harper told the crowd that he intends to deal with the "escalating problem of violent youth crime" when Parliament resumes in the fall.

Oh and Liberal leader Stephane Dion's new "Green Shift" environmental plan, will devastate the economy.

And here's where we have to translate:
Why? Because Dion's carbon tax is not an environmental policy. It is just a wealth redistribution program disguised as an environmental policy."
Meaning that he is going to take Alberta's oil wealth and give it to Ontario and Quebec.
Harper finished his speech by saying he has never felt more hopeful about his party, having broken the Liberal lock on power and demonstrated that there's a better way to govern Canada.
Meaning that the east isn't controlling Canada anymore.

This new guy is taking all the fun out of quoting Steve. Now we have to translate. With this pale pap, Harper could of had this barbecue down the street from my home in the GTA. 

Well, minus the cowboy hat and about 700 party faithful.

662

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
