Dear Editor, Mr. Harper, Mr. MacKenzie, Mr Layton–I understand that there will be a vote in Parliament today to ‘extend the mission’ in Libya.  Firstly–to call this a ‘mission’ is obtuse.  This is not a mission, it is a war against a sovereign nation that has threatened no one.  When did a peace keeping nation […]

Letter to the Editor – Joe Hueglin of Niagara Falls Ontario on Harper Government Agenda: Plus qu’il change plus que la meme chose – April 28, 2011

Interesting is the terminology used by Harper over time. “Canadians want change not constitutional wrangling, said Harper.” were the words used when “New Confederation proposals” were issued by News Release on October 15, 1995. Also stated then was this: “In all cases, Reform’s New Confederation proposals simply require a federal government that is willing to […]

Letter to the Editor – PJ Robertson of Morrisburg Ontario on MP Guy Lauzon’s Contempt – April 24, 2011

In the federal all-candidates debate in the Cornwall Civic Complex, SDSG MP Guy Lauzon is reported to have dismissed Parliament’s contempt ruling against the Conservatives as simply the opposition parties ganging up, and therefore meaningless.   Clearly, Mr. Lauzon has learned nothing about parliamentary democracy and has no time for it.   So, why is he running for re-election […]
