“Doctor horror
It's not Stephen Harper who will put Canada into a third world status it would be the opposition
We were well on the way before Harper took over -check your history, And putting Canadians at risk is a bit over the top, Life in Canada is good. I'd like to know what you would replace it with. Your moniker is well chosen.”

“how much destruction of our country's economy will the harper dictatorship regime complete before you guys wake up...”

altonwilliams on Jan 30, 2013 at 15:02:20

“Harper inherited massive surpluses, a strong financial sector and a housing market that was booming....Now we have massive deficits, shattered environmental standards, housing markets ready to crash, and a financial sector that's just been downgraded. He got lucky during the 2008 crash and following depression, but it's all about to come crashing down in Canada. The tarsands will collapse because they're too expensive and Harper's basket carrying all his eggs will break. This government is the worst in Canadian history, hands down.”

“I'm sorry, do you even live here?

“"We we well on our way" to prosperity before Harper took over unless you prefer a massive deficit and billions in additional debt to a surplus and paying down the debt.

Apparently Harper prefers spend and bankrupt to conservative fiscal policy.”

DoctorHorror on Jan 30, 2013 at 13:47:28

“Harper wrote an article that states, less jobs means people compete for jobs. By selling out our resources to China, NAFTA, and providing tax breaks for corporations is just a leading factor of his hidden agenda.

Yes, Harper put Canadians at risk during the g20 summit and in turn had police arrest innocent people in Toronto.
Anytime Baird speaks up against other countries we are put at risk. The middle east is a problem created by the U.K and U.S for the greed of oil. We have no business in that mess as we have enough resources to sustain ourselves. We are not ready for globalization as other countries to do not have the same standard of living, human rights. So instead of us saying "we weill only deal with you internaionali if you treat workers better" Instead he says we need to compete and that means lower wages, and less laws to protect workers.”

smithflight on Jan 30, 2013 at 13:46:49

“This story was not about the opposition. It is about Governments being held to account for misleading the people. All governments lie or mislead us, but the treatment of Page was so outrageous. I am a fiscal conservative and was appalled by the constant and long term misrepresentation of the facts of F35 program by Harper. He only relented when it was obvious to all that the emperor had no clothes.

I do not accept your implied premise that we need to look the other way because if we do not we will end up electing the opposition.”

“it's you who needs a refresher in recent history and canadian parliamentary system (harper inherited $13B surplus). check this out if you don't believe me: http://3dpolicy.ca/content/fiscal-conservatives-yes-no-maybe. if the article is not to your liking just google: "surplus that harper inherited".”

For instance was weather conditions taken into account, or the efficiency of the vehicles
headlights for range ( depth) and brilliance. If some of these accidents happened at dusk
was the sun a factor Dusk is abad time as well. Even traffic lights at night can be a problem
especially if the background of the lights is of the same colour as the signal. This has happened in the past, Just a few things that I think would polish the report a bit..”

“Robo-calls to influence election results? Does that ring a bell? The Harper government actually admitted that they were behind that little scam in Saskatchewan. There is the comparison that you are unwilling/unable to admit.

Of course the followers of the media forgot all about that after the Cons threw that Brazeau guy under the bus right after they admitted it.”

For far too long Canadian citizenship has served as a way out for these types

“I always thought women wer good with money but these two ladies have laid that presumption to rest”

Stopthependulum on Jan 31, 2013 at 09:44:31

“Well, two things: I am a man and have seen as many women who were good with money as i've seen bad. I have also seen as many men who were good with their money as there were bad. In this case, it isn't their money. In this case, Wynne JUST got in, give her a damn chance to prove herself (my expectations are more windfalls for corporations, more cuts for citizens, but I can give her the benefit of the doubt). If Grobion's numbers are correct (@8:17), then one could assume that Redford has a lot of proving to do as far as her fiscal abilities. As long as politicians work harder at insuring themselves a nice post politics boardroom job than at providing us with good government, what they do fiscally will never make sense to us.”
