Joan Boxalls's poem on fracking
RoboCalls Still Not Dealt With
So the head of Elections Canada, William Corbett, resigns (not from any political reason, apparently) and Canadian Press speculates that his successor might not be "as aggressive as Corbett in pursuing alleged wrongdoing..." Now let's see. Apparent forgery of election expenses in 2008 by Dean Del Mastro is being investigated NOW four years later. A court had to order a new election in one Ontario riding due to paperwork failure by elections officers. The robocalls, subject of hundreds if not thousands of citizen complaints, only came to light after public outcry, AND there has still been no real movement on that investigation, while the government continues to astonish with the harshness of its agenda, destroying environmental laws and social justice measures with abandon.
Meanwhile the Council of Canadians have gone to court to try to get to the bottom of hanky panky in seven ridings. So this is a harsh and biased treatment of the Conservative government? Golly gee. When those supposed to uphold our democracy have no guts for the task, no wonder the Harperites feel they can ride roughshod over the country.
