I am no young man, but take Tony Clement, for instance, no please somebody take him, because I can’t anymore. Deciding that the misappropriation of G8 security funds by Harper’s president of the Treasury Board is no longer a problem, (and think about that sentence for a minute), the PMO sent him out to an Alberta chamber of commerce meeting this week, to create one liner counter points to Mulclair’s excellent rant about the negative effects of our over priced petrodollar on our manufacturing and exporting sectors.
Of course the PMO through Tony claim that this was a reckless and irresponsible ideology and it is bad for Alberta, bad, for Ontario and bad for Canada.
To prove that point Tony then claimed to be able to name many communities in Ontario and Quebec whose manufacturing has been saved by the tar sands (Saved!. Hell even Alberta isn’t getting saved by the Tar Sands. Two years ago the province netted more in Lotto revenue than they did in oil subsidies.) Anyway Tony failed to name any of the communities.
Instead he went on to explain that Canada is an island of stability in global economic uncertainty and the Harper regime whose stewardship got us here is now planning to further cut the red tape and reduce all regulatory burden in approving new projects.
One project, one review.
And like every thing else with this regime there is nothing that we can do.
I met Tony Clement once and saved him from getting attacked. I controlled my self.
