Larry Heather, Calgary Mayoral Candidate, Blasts Nenshi's Muslim Faith

Larry Heather, Calgary Mayoral Candidate, Blasts Nenshi's Muslim Faith

“I guess the choosing of Nenshi was the reason for the Calgary flood... c'mon you know there are some Calgarians who believe that!”

“...Yet there are some Nenshi fans who see to think he parted the murky waters, Moses-like.

While Nenshi did a good job in terms of crisis management AFTER the flood, his policies contributed to the problem in the first place. Nenshi and his colleagues Druh Farrel and Gian-Carlo Carra are enthusiastic supporters of PlanIt, and the buildup of dense housing (condos, infills) in severely flood-prone areas like Eau Claire and the East Village. There were stark warnings of the danger of this in 2005, yet they pushed for development there. And Nenshi et al. squandered money on porkbarrel projects like the airport tunnel, while neglecting badly needed maintenance and upgrades to storm sewer infrastructure in established communities--something that contributed to problems in areas like Hillhurst and Sunnyside.”

“I say we ship Francis back to States and let her pretend in her own little world. I don't mind having America as our neighbours but I would prefer the "real" America, you know the one that created and followed their Constitution, not the Fascist"Corporations are People" one it is now.”

Conservatives Canada's Founding Party? They Seem To Think So

“This just another lie that this "Conservative Government" loves to tell. I was part of that founding Party of Canada, The Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, until its hostile takover by the Reform/ Canadian Allance Party. This "Conservative Party's" roots only go back to Preston Manning and the Reform Party of the 1970's.
The Reform/Canadian Alliance Party orchestrated the demise of the P.C.Party along with the subterfuge of some of the P.C. Party excutives and former excutives and along with the incompetance of Jean-Pierre Kingsley and Elections Canada.
Because of Elections Canada role in 2003 of the hostile takeover and the slap on the wrists that the Cons received over the election funding illegalities, I have no confidence now that Elections Canada will do anything to the Conservatives over the voting suppression scandal of the last election. Government corruption and Canada's movement away from Democracy is here to stay. This is the biggest shame because of all of Canada's veterans who lost their sanity, parts of their bodies or their lives to defend Democracy overseas now have to see their efforts were in vain because of what is happening in their own back yard.”

“The PC party was a joke created in the 70's. The conservative party is the founding party of Canada under John A, crack a history book instead of the huffpost once in a while.”

“The Liberals and the NDP will never work together as one entity. Another way to solve the problem is to start a whole new Party and create policies that people in both Parties can agree with. This how the United Party of Canada is attempting to bring opposing viewpoints together.”

“There isn't time to start a whole new party. That is what E. May is doing with the Green Party. It will take years to build up enough MP's in the house to have any sort of influence over policy directions. The NDP as it stands now has the best chance to defeat the Cons. Left leaning Liberals should move to the NDP and the right leaning ones should go to Cons.”

“I don't know where you get that the Liberal Party of Canada is on the left anymore. True, they do have some left leaning M.P's but the Party as a whole is still a Paul Martin/ John Manley business first, centre/right Party and has been for years. The right/left struggleis what has put the Liberal Party presently in the politcal wilderness. To even survive they move to at the very least the centre/left.
Their still present arrogance, thinking that they are the only Party that should be governing Canada is what is quickly moving them to the relevance of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada.”

“Canada should pull out of NATO. We can make sure our military equipment will sync with other NATO members but NATO has become America's international offensive(in every sense of the word) tool to promote America's geopolitical interests. NATO was meant to halt Soviet aggression in Europe. The Soviet Union is dead, NATO should be as well.”

“The brave men and women who now wear the Canadian Forces uniform are pawns in the Canadian Government's( no matter which Party) geo political game playing they do every day. They do not care about the same things as our soldiers do. They do not have honour or care about serving our Country with distiction. They dance to the tunes of the international banking community and they will use any Canadian and throw over the side, any Canadian, in order to keep their masters happy.”

“This is when regular Canadians need to take up the banner and battle for the fallen. These brave men and women who have worn the Canadian uniform in wars and peacekeeping missions and also in support roles have sacrificed their bodies, thier peace of mind and sometimes their lives in sometimes dark and bloodied places around the world in order for them to help preserve our values, our Democratic ideals, only to see those same Democratic institutions become corrupted and destroyed in their own back yards.”

“Those who forget history... The shift to the right under Martin started the beginning of the end of the Liberal dominance. You can be pro business and progressive, you just have to think differently. Unfortunately I don't think you seeing that type of thinking, at least so far, by any of the front runners here.”

“Paul Martin was not right-wing. He was a liberal. Liberals are not socialists. They believe in largely free markets, balanced budgets, oppose confiscatory taxation, and don't think government should spend as much on social programs as socialists do.”
