GG MEPPED out for Canada Day

Here is Harper's latest MEP, let's call it the Canada Day MEP.

Instead of being in Ottawa to bid her last “Happy Birthday Canada” wishes, Jean will mark Canada Day half a world – and several time zones—away at Expo 2010 in Shanghai.

Via a press release issued by his office Monday, Harper’s office said Jean will travel at his request and at “the invitation of” the government of China.

Governor General Jean’s stay in China will be a unique opportunity to highlight the dynamic people-to-people connections between China and Canada, Harper’s announcement stated.

Of course what was left out of Harper's press release is that the Queen will be in Ottawa for Canada Day and of course with GG Michelle Jean out of the picture, visiting factories in China, yes seriously visiting factories, Harper will stand in for the GG, right there next to the Queen for all the Canada Day photo ops.

My guess is that Harper was pissed about playing second fiddle to the GG at the Olympics earlier this year and he wasn't going to let that happen again.

I bet the slimy PMO asshole, that came up with this Message Event Proposal, got a way to go brownie point, for this one, or possibly a passing nod from Steve, as he made his way to the washroom, which of course then caused this little PMO shit to become so overwhelmed that he pissed his pants. I mean who else could do this kind of crap for living.

Sorry about that, just tying to do my bit to fill the CC void while he is on hiatus.

Since when does the PM tell the GG what to do and where to go?

I don't mean to trash Michaelle Jean, well not too much, but she is a spinelss figurehead with little grasp of the Canadian constitution.

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.


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 …
