Liberal Del Jones of Morrisburg Ontario Looks Forward to the End of the Harper Government – LTE  Aug 19, 2013

harperEach day that passes we are one day closer to the end of the Harper government and for me that is enough motivation to work hard on behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and Justin Trudeau.

 

Mr. Harper’s comments that Liberals have “dangerous ideas” and their proposals are “so extreme they would make the worst European budget look solid in comparison” are childish and ridiculous.  Really Mr. Harper, is fear-mongering the best you can do?

 

Previous Liberal governments implemented a universal health care system, established the Canada Pension Plan, gained the respect of the world through leadership in peace-keeping initiatives, and kept the country out of a needless war in Iraq. And of course, the last nine years Liberals were in office they ran surpluses that ensured Canada was better positioned to withstand the 2008 financial collapse than any other major industrial country.

 

And what dangerous ideas will a 2015 Liberal government bring to the table? How about national leadership on health care, a focus on income security for an aging population and a compassionate, caring government that makes decisions based on evidenced-based research and social justice for all Canadians.

 

Continue to fear-monger Mr. Harper and Liberals across Canada will continue to prepare for government in the 21st century. And I will rise every day and celebrate knowing that we are one day closer to the end of the one-man, Harper government.

 

Del Jones

President, SDSG Federal Liberal Association

I look forward to the end of the Harper government as well, about 2023.
Can you provide a link, I would be interested in learning more so I can vote properly.

If what the liberals have done in Ontario is any sign of what Trudeau will do with the country, I’d like absolutely no part in a Federal Gov’t run by these clowns. Del, would you not say that Ontario is in a dangerous situation financially? What about Harper’s comments are childish and ridiculous? How can we trust a Gov’t that is willing to throw away hundreds of millions of dollars to save a couple of seats? Funny how the federally funded CBC doesn’t report on the Liberal scandals and fiascos, but Rob Ford has a drink at a party and… Read more »

Harper is saying that he’s gonna stick around for the next election. The Libs and Dippers are more than happy to hear that. By then, Duffy and Wallin might be out of jail and stumping for the Cons once again.

As you all know I am no fan of Harpo but one thing that I have in my mind that I am solid about is that Justin Trudeau is in no way like Paul Martin nor like Jean Chrétien – he has no experience in law at all and can do a great deal of damage. Justin is in no way like his father and if people think that Justin can do a good job my answer is no he cannot. I would say to everyone get your heads out of pot and be realistic. Justin is a nice young… Read more »

Yup. The Duffy/Wallin/Brazeau scandals are getting a little out of hand. Time for Harper to head for the hills, once again. The problem for Steve is that when he comes out of hiding in a few months, the scandal will still be front page news. Add to that the Elections Canada investigations, with the accompanying RCMP investigations into election fraud.
The Reformatories have been digging themselves some pretty deep holes.

Each year that passes the country is becoming more Conservative. Funny how the liebrals have forgotten shawinagate and sponsorship scandal . There is a good reason that they do have very little seats and are a the THIRD PARTY,they lost and they lost big time last election and it will be at least 2 more terms before they have a chance to run the show. The provincial lieberals will be just as damaged next election and it will definitely have an impact on their federals brethren. Besides Trudeau has foot in mouth disease and does not have the stature nor… Read more »

Let’s not forget, it is not only Conservative senators caught up in this scandal. At least they’ve had the decency to pay back monies owed. What about Mac Harb? Funny, how the media rarely mentions his outrageous housing claims. What a joke!

So now we hear our Big Brave Leader (aka PM/Prorogue Man) up North at it again announcing he plans to shut down Parliament (yet again) until late October. Wonder why. Let’s guess: Can’t take the heat of the Senate expenses scandal. Especially the heat of his own words in defence of Senator Wallin in QP back in February: “I have reviewed the Senator’s expenses and they appear to be in line.” Really?

Yes so far he is the biggest abuser ….but my how the left wing media is quiet about that one ….this is exactly why we need more independent media ,even the media are politically connected in this country!

But Canadians are sheeple .

Gotta love it when idiots mix provincial and federal politics. Provincially, the liberals need to do a serious clean up – I will never trust whodat though, so no way I’m going to vote OntarioPC.

Federally, these family draining, civil right stomping, dictator-wannabe cons have got to go.. Id easily vote federal liberal over this current con-job we have going right now!

I would be OK with a few years of government working less……can non essential services be given a timeout? How about job sharing?

It’s almost funny how the Harper-Con whiners keep trotting out the “left wing media” mantra. For sure Harb is a piece of work, and he will likely be charged by the RCMP for fraud. Chrétien appointed him to the senate ten years ago, and so far he’s the only Liberal senator in deep doo-doo. Then Harper, a great judge of character, appointed three sleazy people to the senate, two of which were high profile TV personalities, in 2009. The current senate scandal isn’t so much about thieving senators. It’s more to do with our Prime Minister’s choice of party fund… Read more »

Perfect reasons Furtz for change. The people doing the due diligence could be reassigned and allow the citizens to vote for who they want, campaign style. Can’t be any worse than who us citizens hire now! During that same time, update the rules and accountability model.

One good thing about this crap going on, it is in the open, not swept under the rug.

@ Highlander. Whatever Chrétien did does not excuse Harper, who promised in 2006 Accountability, Transparency and Senate Reform, as well as mandatory election periods. Seven years on, he hasn’t managed to keep any of those promises. The only unarguably transparent things about the so-called economic genius, Stephen Harper, is that he has managed to raise Canada’s deficits and debt to historic levels; waste miilions of taxpayer dollars on futile Economic Action Plans (aka government propaganda); incarcerate Canadians for minor offences again at taxpayers’ expense; appoint senators who act as bagmen for Conservative Party coffers yet again at taxpayers’ expense; ram… Read more »

Anon, Completely agree with you about the ones you state (idiots, your word not mine) mixing provincial and federal politics. I came from Quebec ten years ago and if you were a federalist (Canadian) then you only had one party to vote for, the provincial Liberals (if you were English or an immigrant), and with their record of enforcing linguistic laws in Quebec, effectively banning the English language, they were no better that the separatist A-holes (my words) that make up the rest of Quebec politics. After coming to Ontario I was educated by a neighbour and friend about Ontario… Read more »

“implemented a universal health care system” wasn’t that following in the foot steps of a Social Credit’s Tommy Douglas in Saskatchewan? What liberals need to do is quit trying to cloak the eyes of the public. They are the worst for spending our tax dollars to survive rather then what is best for the country and its people. Trudeau is merely a vote buster, he has no idea how to run a party and is living off his name. Liberals have little or no chance and the NDP are truly wanting.

Yes I am Dave

The principal is the same spend and give with out reservation. The federal liberals wanted politics out of our bed room yet we have to watch everyone on their bedroom asking for rights….

Liberals only use society to confuse itself and seek more support all the while raising taxes for their own benefit.

Never has a liberal served under the economy Harper has….they tend to create strife when times are tough allowing the Conservatives to stay a steady course and keep us in good standing…then liberals bring out new ideas and we have another national debt

Hailey, I feel sorry for you then . You are living in a make believe world where the CPC and conservative politics and values has tainted one’s judgement. There have been recessions before and in fact the recession that Harper faced was less hard on Canadians, not for anything that he has done, but we were in a better fiscal position, left in part by the previous Liberal governments and our distance and fiscal policies (like banks) that were in place long before Harper took over. Harper pissed a surplus away and tried to buy Canadians but if you really… Read more »

Highlander is also living in a make believe world. First of all the recession may have been the worst for the world but not for Canada.

Going into the ‘recession’ Flaterly denied that he was putting Canada into it with his lavish spending and in his ‘great economics’ he was telling us that we would have a surplus that year.

Del it isn’t fear mongering it is reality ! Collecting excessive amounts of income tax (surpluses) year after year and not returning the monies to the taxpayers is abuse of power and position. Check the income tax act. Stealing from the taxpayer, getting caught (adscam) promising to repay then never making any attempt to do so (keep your word) is not just dishonourable it is despicable.

Dave White, It is not so much that all political parties screw the taxpayer, but rather that the Canadian taxpayer allows themselves to be screwed. When discussions regarding the differences between ourselves and our American counterparts occur invariably the way that we hold our politicians accountable is one of the major differences. What is wrong with multiculturalism you ask, let me try to take something complex and simplify it. Nothing is wrong with exposure to different cultures, it broadens ones view and hence understanding of people and the world around us. Unity is not a synonym of diversity.

I Believe now you only have to live in Canada 3-5 years now to collect OAS.

You were right when you corrected HIGHLANDER on Chretien having prorogued parliament 11 times. Highlander gracefully apologized and stood corrected for having been misinformed. Just for the record it was PIERRE TRUDEAU that prorogued parliament 11 TIMES. He was a LIBERAL also, so really the mistake was only the name not the fact that it was a liberal government. You can split hairs HFTT I will give you that. A stickler for accuracy gets my respect.
