Cornwall ON – Hunter S Thompson never liked Richard Nixon much. I can only imagine that if he were alive and in Canada what he’d think about Stephen Harper who currently is on a pre-election witch hunt and scare fare amongst bureaucrats in Canada who may be in a position to oppose his wishes.
Pat Stogran, RCMP Chief Supt. Marty Cheliak, Munir Sheikh, Linda Keen, Paul Kennedy, Peter Tinsley, and there are more like Konrad von Finckenstein. Add in Helena Guergis and her skid marks and a litany of other victims and a very clear trend of behaviour can be established.
It’s a form of government that I don’t think has been seen since the 30’s and they didn’t call them the “dirty thirties” for nothing. Where is the voice of the opposition parties while all this is happening? Where is the Leader of the opposition? Why is it dependent upon an already put upon media to oppose this type of behaviour? And is anyone listening?
You can’t let foxes protect the hen house and that seems to be what this government is slowly doing one hen house at a time. Now comes news that Mr. Harper’s former point man in the media is being set up as the political chief of Sun Media whilst part of that company is trying to get the CRTC to grant it special slots on the cable dial.
As we get closer to election time the question that comes to mind is that will Canadians even know about these back door machinations and will they care?
It seems that I and many others were wrong. Mr. Harper isn’t emulating the Bush neo-cons, but the Putin type of government in Russia. Is that what we want in Canada?
