Harper and his Conservative government seem to think all Canadians are stupid, and see it as an opportunity.
Once again they are irresponsibly rushing a piece of broken legislation through parliament and think that by slapping an appealing name on it, that Canadians aren’t intelligent enough to see what’s happening.
We’ve seen it time and time again with items like these:
Being in politics means you have an idea to sell and that you have to market it in the best light, but this is beyond insulting.
Not only are we all capable of reading proposed legislation and seeing how it’s flawed, each of these pieces of legislation contain some things we actually do want. Rather than working with opposition parties and critics to pass the things that are helpful, they would rather force an “all-or-nothing” attitude, seize political opportunity and accuse those who are not supportive of being the bad guys.
At this point, I don’t really expect much respect from a party that has repeatedly ignored science, evidence, the wishes of most of the population, and the rules and principles of the democratic process itself.
Like many Canadians, I’m blown away by the things the Conservative party seems to be able to do in broad daylight without repercussion. They have become a parody of themselves.
The only question I have left for the Harper Conservatives now is this: Why stop there?
You seem to enjoy misleading Canadians without batting an eye. Clearly you could get away with so much more.
Here’s a couple suggestions:
Then again, maybe you could just call bills what they are. You’re not interested in debating them anyway.
