Now, if our politicians would just get with the Olympic feeling, we might see some progress in this country.
I find it typical that CTV would blaze this story all over the news.
Helena Guergis apologizes for airport outburst Notice it was doorknob Wayne Easter, Liberal MP for PEI, who ran to the press with this non-story. Let's not forget another Liberal MP from PEI who wanted to hang Mulroney, which somehow didn't get reported by CTV. Seriously, I love PEI, all my in-laws live there, but something in that red soil makes them vote in Liberal misfits. I guess when you can meet your MP in the bar any day of the week, it makes them more "human". Helena was right to apologize, and it shouldn't have happened, but CTV can't help themselves and have to mention her husband, Rahim Jaffer so you don't feel too sorry for her. It really is sickening how biased CTV is. Maybe we should start following their reporters around and report all the dirt we find on them.
Funny how CTV has failed to cover this story:
An MP is picking a fight over the separation of church and state, blasting a proposal to give government funding to a Christian group that wants to create a youth centre in downtown Winnipeg.
New Democrat MP Pat Martin says giving municipal or federal funding to the Youth For Christ project would amount to "taxpayer-funded proselytization."
Another MP that has no Olympic spirit. He thinks religious organizations are bad for our youths because they might give them a place to go when their parents are working. I wonder how may irate constituents he heard from over the last few days to make him change his mind?
MP flip-flops on Christian group’s youth centre
A New Democrat MP now says he'll help the Christian organization he excoriated last week as a "fundamentalist group" to build an $11.7-million youth centre in downtown Winnipeg.
"Now that it's over, I'm going to do all I can to ensure it's a success," Mr. Martin said. "Anything happening in the inner city is better than nothing."
At city council, opponents such as Nahanni Fontaine (any relation to Phil?) from the Southern Chiefs' Organization likened the group's youth centre to Canada's residential schools. But the primary complaint raised by inner-city groups was that they had no access to comparable public funding.
So it was all political for Martin, and Fontaine just wanted the money for their organization without having any plan of their own, they just think they DESERVE the money. They don't want interference in their community. Right, a community that has the highest crime rates, and highest suicide rates and a little bit of God is a bad thing? What a disgusting show of victimhood. Martin was obviously pandering to his special interest groups and not to the needs of the community. Vote him out!
Our MP's need to get some Olympic style courage from Joannie. They are being dictated to by special interest groups and they are forgetting who their really represent, that silent majority that has the power to vote them out.
