The softwood lumber deal, is done, well except for those seemingly truly opposed to it, the opposition. So, will it be election time, or whimp out time?
PM Stephen Harper has made the softwood lumber deal, a matter of confidence. What a smart move! Watch him speaking, see that grin he's trying not to show? Too funny!
The opposition thinks they are winning in committee, because they have 7 against 4, but, the Conservatives are still getting their policies accepted, as this shows. So, what are the opposition accomplishing? Not much!
They got their SOW's (Status of Women) people out in full force to protest the demise of the "national" daycare program, what happened? Parents are getting their $100 per child under 6 in the mail, every month. Think they are going to vote against that next election? NO way!
The opposition voted in committee to call for an "immediate" ceasefire. They would not allow any Lebanese groups before the committee, ticking all those people, including the red cross, off big time. Smooth move opposition, and what did that gain you? NADA, ZIP, NOTHING!
Now, 3 opposition MP's, are touring Lebanon, talking about how the hezbollah are not terrorists? Give your head a shake, you heard right, they say, the hezbollah, who targeted Israeli civilians, are not terrorists! Did they tour the destruction in Israel?? NOPE!!! Seems if you side with terrorists, you better not see what damage they have inflicted on innocents that just happen to be Jewish. SHAME!
So, back to the softwood lumber deal, it's now a matter of confidence, so, the NDP, in support of only their own political agenda, have said they will not support it, well, so much for the party of the people! I bet all those people in BC who would have lost their jobs are going to be supporting the NDP next time. NOT!
That PM Harper, he's so many moves ahead of the opposition, they think they are winning something! HAH
