CTV your partisanship is showing

According to this CTV article Canadians are OK with the billion dollar G8/G20 summits. Unless of course you read the article.
Of those polled who heard something about the cost of hosting the summits, 61 per cent said they were too expensive to be worth it.
Learn more here from CTV, although you might as well just make things up, like they seem to be doing.

Sadly, I don't think they're making this up.

For today's conservative. Real fiscal conservatism is cutting all over the place to make the most folks suffer while they spend all their money on their 'pals'

Oh some cons over at the Blogging SupposiTories are whining about them money spent, but in the end, they will catapult Steve to his next majority. Unless, of course, we start showing more support for the opposition and/or a new leader takes over for the Liberals before the end of summer.

Looks like the great expense is to be the springboard for the upcoming election.

We think things are bad now; just wait until Steve gets a majority.

Hi CK

Similar to the poll results in the article, everyone I have spoken to thinks this billion dollar pork barrel, photo Op is ridiculous and they are sticking it right on Harper.

What surprises me is that 24% of those polled were not aware of the billion dollars or what other counties have spent in the past. But in reality more than that percentage do not vote anyway.

Right now this looks bad for Harper and I don't think any number of pictures of Stevie with other leaders will change that.

He actually might have jumped the sark this time

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.
