Get real Jack

Layton is going to oppose the throne speech.

At a time when Canadians who in Layton's own words want “bold action” on the approaching economic shit storm we are about to face, forcing the country into another election, or turning it’s governance over to a coalition lead by an outgoing Liberal leader, might not be the best plan of action right now.

Harper like every other government leader, is not in control of this economic maelstrom, things will get worse and there will be plenty of opportunities to block ill defined legislation or eventually bring his government down.

However it would require some cooperation between the opposition parties, a coalition per se that offers some alternative solutions.

Not opportunistic, knee jerk, symbolic reactions.

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 …
