Steve & Dimitri - Canadian potty

Yesterday in Colombia, Harper attacked the critics of his Canada-Colombia free trade investment agreement who object to the deaths of a couple hundred unionists and the displacement of 4.9 million people in the struggle for control over land for the development of resources that over 70 Canadian extraction companies are heavily involved in. Steve  :
"We can’t block the progress of a country like this for protectionist reasons, and (they’re) trying to use human rights as a front for doing that."
If that line sounds familiar, yes, it's the same "human rights as a phony front" argument he uses to defend Israel's atrocities in Gaza.

Tomorrow it's on to Honduras where the Harper government was the first to sanction the right wing coup in 2009 that replaced leftist president Zelaya who coincidentally had put a moratorium on further foreign mining concessions.
Honduras is getting its own Canadian free investment agreement soon as well.

"human rights"

Two words a conservative never utters unless "phony" is also included . . . .

Harper is like a bowl obstruction in the digestive track of open and democratic societies. Worst PM ever.

"cheap labour" its always the cheap labour with Harper types.

On Aug. 4, the Lobo government of Honduras approved the entry of Canadian soldiers into the country to take part in a joint training exercise, as such we will be sending 150 soldiers to work alongside the military of one of the most illegitimate and oppressive regimes in the world

Harper wants to shove as much as he possibly can, onto the provinces. He wants to shove health care, onto provinces. He is getting rid of the Federal governments meat inspectors. That too will be the provinces responsibility. He is chopping 700 members from, Environment Canada. The less will be seen, on Harper's plan to pollute the planet.

Harper wants to focus only on, his wars, building up his war machine, building his gulags. He is frantic, to be an energy giant. Harper wants to bask in his power and glory. And, to hell with the people.

I read, Harper gives a speech at, the Council of Foreign Relations, in New York, Sept 25/2007. This is his evil agenda.
