Mulroney owes conservatives 35 dollars

The Harper conservative party will absolutely continue to accept former progressive conservative prime minister Brian Mulroney as a member, provided that he ponies up the $35 for a five-year membership card.

This confirmation by the Harper conservative party president Don Plett came about after intervention by Harpers defense minister Peter MacKay. A staunch supporter and personal, friend of the former prime minister, MacKay thought Mulroney should be granted a lifetime membership, similar to the ones issued by the former progressive conservative party.

Unfortunately he did not offer to pay the thirty-five bucks on Mulroney’s behalf or state whether he would renew his own membership in the future.

Maybe we need to get a fund started to keep Mulroney an active member of Harpers conservatives.

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 …
