Remembering Harpers response to 911

Yesterday, in remembering the 911 attacks, our Prime Minister “warned of the dangers of doing nothing”.
"If we sit back and allow our fellow human beings to descend into a situation of brutality and anarchy and ignorance, this will come back to haunt us," he said.
Here’s what Harper said in the House of Commons in March 2003 in support of the American invasion of Iraq.
"It is inherently dangerous to allow a country such as Iraq to retain weapons of mass destruction, particularly in light of its past aggressive behavior. 
If the world community fails to disarm Iraq, we fear that other rogue states will be encouraged to believe that they too can have these most deadly of weapons to systematically defy international resolutions and that the world will do nothing to stop them."
If Stephen Harper had been the leader of a majority government in 2003, Canada would have been a full participant in the invasion of Iraq and as culpable as the Bush administration is for the brutality, atrocities and misrepresentation of facts for that invasion.
Bush and his neocon PNAC (Plan for the New American Century) supporters used the 911 attacks as an excuse to invade Iraq and obtain oil rights.

Similar to Bush, Harper has the same ideological base of support from the still active NCC (National Citizen’s Coalition) for which he is their former president.
Fortunately in 2003, Canada had cooler heads, without a predefined, well oiled, right wing ideology running the country.

One of the objectives for this election is to insure that we do again.

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.
