Stop shooting the messenger

Senator Nancy Ruth is taking a lot of shots around here tonight for warning a group of international development advocates to shut the f--- up about Harpers stance on not funding abortion services in his foreign aid proposal or things could get worse.

However after reviewing Senator Ruth's resume here and re-listening to the audio here, I think that this 68 year old Senator who seemingly has devoted the best part of her life to working for women's rights (I mean she founded LEAF & The Canadian Women's Foundation and more) is truly concerned about a backlash from Harper and his social conservatives. A backlash as she states, that can further harm women's health.

And if this old activist war horse is scared, then every Canadian that believes in a woman's right to control her own body, should be to.

Stop shooting the messenger and pay attention to the message, A message based on insider information.

Harper's government is full of ideological social conservatives who want to move our country back to the fifties.

Thank you for being so honest Senator, even if not intentionally and hey you can say fuck anytime you want to. By the looks of your resume you've earned the right..

This needed saying. We tend to get carried away with blind partisanship these days. Thanks.

I agree, it is the message that is so troubling.

hang on, I'm not so quick to let this one go...

She may have stood up for women and gay rights in the past, but she's a tory.

As I have noticed over time, Red tories are pretty much no longer existant as they have mostly been led on Steve's sharp right turn.

Perhaps she was warning, but she came off as a bully, just like Brother Steve.

Not like she dien't say anything most of us didn't already know. Only, up until today, so many are in denial where Steve is concerned.

Good on you, JAWL. A voice of reason, how rare these days!

Nancy was simply warning us of the monster that is stephen harper. Taking everything into consideration: her age, her resume, her warning, it reminds me of what happens to whistle~blowers when they first come forward. Then it explains why there aren't more of them.

Dear Progressives Bloggers Admin

How is the Warren Kinsella blog considered a Progressive Blogger?

They runs ads for Doug Ford. They ran ads for the conservatives the last time Harper ran.

They continue to promote the SNC bullshit.

Get them off this aggregator. Thank you.

Things that piss me off, today

Government Negotiations
Do you think that it might have been wiser to wait for the federal court decision on the legality of the approval process used by the National Energy Board when giving the go ahead for expansion of the Kinder Morgan bitumen pipeline, before spending 9 billion plus dollars on what was originally purchased for 110 million dollars by Kinder Morgan, ten years ago?
Considering that we all knew that Harper’s National Energy Board was nothing more than a corrupt industry rubber stamp. Isn’t that one of the many reasons we got rid of Harper, including of course hiding in a closet when we were attacked (in case anyone forgot)?
Somehow I am now supposed to be confident that our government can successfully renegotiate NAFTA with the Orange Asshole.
Jesus I’m sounding like a conservative.
Dating Apps
My son has become a player, in his dad’s mind. He has three different dating apps that apparently are for daters wanting three different types of dates. He showed me one app in…

Um, what

It all started out as a humorous post in 2014, about Stephen Harper's war room trying to get something on Justin Trudeau after he took over the leadership of the Liberal party. 
Apparently and shockingly it might very well be true.
An anonymous source has now come forward and claims that they have talked to a person who was present when the young Justin swam into the deep end of the pool and with all the arrogance of a wealthy, privately educated, son of a Prime Minister, grinned as he relieved himself in what could be considered Canada's pool.
For a Prime Minister and current President of the Group of 7 or so, who wants to create a proclamation about protecting our oceans at this years session, this incident from his past demonstrates the hypocrisy of Canada's Liberal government and it's so called progressive Prime Minister.
So much for that "It's 2018, Let's clean up our oceans" bullshit.
