NO Blob Ford first
i would rather FORD more years than have Harper literlly dismantle and do away with every decent bit of quality funding and infrastructure he can.
he's a fucking menace.
he is systematically selling off our natural resources and pretty much doing away with whatever him and his cronies deem unfit.
fuck him, fuck his dead eyes, he needs to die of a heart attach, brain aneurism, or something we will laugh about for the next decade.
he has done WAY more long term damage that Rob Ford could even come close to doing in 5 lifetimes.
and dude? Annnnnd?
Harper is the ONLY reason we dont have legal or decriminalized weed nationwide yet.
The Liberals were for it. NDP has been for years. SO is the bloc. So are *some* conservatives. It was put in the hopper legislatively and then killed in an early summer CHretien pro roguing - but it was gonna come back.
Maybe we needed to wait for Bush to go. But Obama got elected and Mexico decriminalized everything and he didn't say shit but that they had a right to do as they pleased.
THat was our moment - but we happened to have Harper at the helm and he is irrationally attached to this Drug Warrior ideal. We have actual legal weed in nearby american states and we still have Harper at the helm. Word is he is personally making sure his party doesn't do much but offer an olive branch of some potential reduced sentencing approach. And who knows when that will happen. He brings in all this extra ideological baggage on issues like this and complete bullshit ones like the census and now, most egriously, voter f*ckin ID!
Flaherty didn't have that kind of "batshit" to him at all. Its a big loss for the Conservatives who I'm not sure can really do much but toss up McKay and hope the mudslinging and kneecapping from threatened elders hasn't tarnished him too much...
His stand against income splitting also suggested he was more than just another Harper neocon. He was a true blue conservative, something that is in increasingly short supply these days. RIP Mr. Flaherty.
He was the one conservative politician I really didn't mind. Maybe even liked.
