This Easter, our PM did actually go to Church, he just didn't broadcast it like Ignatieff did. Funny how it's okay for Ignatieff to go to Church, but not our PM.
Pride in Canada, it's a concept the media doesn't want us to talk about. Speaking of the media, this is an excellent segment on Sun News. Barefaced Bias, the Sloppiest Story and Craziest Column.
Pride in Canada, not cuddling with criminals. Rewarding those who work, by giving them back some of what they have earned, not taking away more to support those who refuse to work. If the NDP are so pro-homeless, then why do they want to increase the heating bills of every Canadian, rich or poor?
Cap and trade is an unconstitutional threat to the country
Under the single umbrella of the national carbon quota regime, a national commission will limit and politicize Canadians’ rights to produce, import, consume or export fossil-fuel derived energy, building products (cement, aluminum, iron and steel, wallboard and other pulp and paper-based products, etc.), fertilizers, industrial chemicals, grains and beef.
The existence of such a commission will eviscerate the powers assigned to the provinces in our current Constitution, forever.
Pride in Canada does not include trying to break it up. If the NDP eat into Bloc support, good for them. Conservatives can take seats in Quebec, and all across Canada, they can unite us, a coalition would only divide us. It's time for the silent majority to "rise up" and deliver a majority to the Conservatives.
The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that for purposes of upholding such an intrusion into areas of provincial authority under the “national emergency” test, the feds must be proposing law that is temporary to address an emergency that is short-term in nature. Clearly, the climate-change issue and the carbon quota solution do not meet this test.
If the court was asked to consider a whether a federal carbon quota system is constitutional under either the “trade and commerce” clause or the “national concern” provision (a very large “if”), the federal quota system must, in the Liberal party election platform’s own words, apply “to all sectors of the economy with no exceptions, and … be equitable across all regions of the country.”In fact, no cap and trade regulation proposed by Environment Canada or any province, to date, complies with this essential requirement.
