  • Goodbye Canada, Hello Harperland

    Canadian Politics

    The defeated ogre, licking his wounds, finds little comfort from his hawkish “best friend”, despite his love for Israeli birds for whom he helped raise more than ten million Canadian dollars to build a bird sanctuary in the Promised Land.

  • Stephen Harper has gone, but Harperism has not

    Canadian Politics

    In short, much of Harper’s agenda seems destined to remain in place. That is a singular accomplishment for the Conservatives. And the future? The voters may have made a moral judgment about Stephen Harper, the aloof and mean-spirited autocrat. But Harperism — the set of policies that this autocrat championed — is far from dead.

  • This election campaign wasn’t about the economy

    Canadian Politics

    Will Monday’s election be decided on the economy? Perhaps it will. But it’s equally likely the outcome will be decided by how Quebecers view the niqab or whether voters in the 905 region outside Toronto believe Harper’s claim that Trudeau wants to set up brothels in their neighbourhoods.

  • Harper thinks we won’t vote. Let’s show him he’s wrong

    Canadian Politics

    Welcome to the new face of voter suppression. Given another four years, it’s a safe bet the Conservatives would try to cancel elections altogether, saying that because so few Canadians even bother to vote it’s clear they support the incumbents.

  • Unwelcome to Canada

    Canadian Politics

    Harper’s media-anointed star performer, Kenney has shamelessly partaken in the age-old demagogic strategy of finding convenient scapegoats and mercilessly targeting them for political gain.

  • Malice in Harperland

    Canadian Politics

    The Harper government has waged an unrelenting attack on the interests of the vast majority of people living in Canada or seeking to live here: it has censored scientists, hamstrung trade union organizers, persecuted protestors, victimized refugees, battled veterans — the list of Harper’s targets is very long.

  • Stop Harper

    Canadian Politics

    It’s hard to recall as divisive a figure in recent Canadian political history as Stephen Harper. Few prime ministers have provoked as much animus among Canadians. Of course it’s not just Harper himself who elicits such enmity, but his corporate and wealthy allies and their political project of market fundamentalism militantly set on rolling back the social state, along with all the hard-won protections accorded Canadians, and undoing indispensable environmental regulations.

  • On the Campaign Trail with Harperman

    Canadian Politics

    And on and on it goes, where it stops nobody knows. So in the grand words of one blogger, let’s “Heave Steve.” And another: “It’s about time people stood up to the bully Harper and stop being sheep! Let’s get rid of him.”

  • Canadian Federal Scientists, Professionals Union Launches Anti-Harper Campaign

    Canadian Politics

    A survey commissioned by the union last year found hundreds of scientists who claimed they had been asked to exclude or alter information in government documents for non-scientific reasons. And thousands more said they’d been prevented from talking freely about their work with the media or the public.

  • Nigel Wright’s Testimony Is Insulting to Canadians

    Canadian Politics

    We should all be offended that someone in that position decides that because he happens to belong to the 0.1 per cent, he can reach into his pocket to personally solve problems with his own money because it is simply the easiest way to clear off his terribly crowded desk and get on with other business.
