Pride In Canada, What A Concept!

Every time I hear this commercial, I have to watch it. As the Liberals go negative, the Conservatives go for the inspirational ad. The best country in the world! Pride in Canada, what a concept!

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.


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.
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.

Thank you for capturing that perfect address by the PM on Easter. I am so proud that he is our PM, as he shows good judgment in the middle of a campaign, respecting his own views, and including others.

I feel safe and comfortable with Stephen Harper as our Prime Minister.
The Liberal MSM is scaring the wits out of me.

SQ, you nailed it! One only witness the timing of Michael Ignatieff's new found love for Canada. He sure cranked out that book "True Patriot Love" just in the nick of time as he parachuted into Canadian politics after a 30+ year absense.

A quickie primer on Jack's (or Iggy's) promises and costs. Fast read, depressing conclusion. Some macabre humour in between:

Pimp your blog much Burp guy?

Because SQ, unlike you, Burpnrun has something intelligent to say. You should give it a read, maybe you'll learn something. But somehow I doubt you are open to the truth or any new ideas.

Prime Minister Layton sounds better than Governor Harper.
