If you grew up in Halifax you grew up in a different culture than Lee Richardson

Conservative Lee Richardson who was actually born in North Battleford Saskatchewan was in his riding in Calgary Centre today, when he decided to explain who the criminals really are.
"Look at who's committing these crimes ... They're not the kid that grew up next door," Richardson told the Calgary newsmagazine Fast Forward Weekly.

"Particularly in big cities, we've got people that have grown up in a different culture," he said.

"And they don't have the same background in terms of the stable communities we had 20, 30 years ago in our cities and don't have the same respect for authority or people's person or property. CBC here.

Well very few us would of the had the same experiences that Richardson had back in the 80’s in North Battleford or where ever he was dancing disco in those days.

And as for Calgary, shit I feel like I’m entering the US, every time I go there.

All said though I wouldn’t really want to call him a racist, he just seems to like your typical conservative to me.

But then again, according to Wikipedia (which must be true):
“Richardson is one of a few MP's to indicate his support for Keith Martin's motion to remove the hate speech provision of Section 13(1) of the Canadian Human Right's Act on the grounds that it violates free speech”.
Okay so he not your typical conservative, but I still don’t think his racist attitude is really his fault.

It is most likely the culture and neighborhood he grew up in.

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.
