ISIS Figures Killed in Iraq Air Strike; Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Not Believed Among Them

I’m no shill. I do live in Canada. And I do have a brain. I also read the CBC’s reports about CSIS agent Mohammed al-Rashad smuggling teen British girls into Syria to “fight” for “ISIS. And I know about John McCain meeting with al-Baghdadi. And John McCain ISIS selfies. I know “we” have been air dropping supplies and materiel on ISIS positions in Syria. And even giving them a fleet of Toyota pick-up trucks. The Russians have accomplished in Syria what “we” couldn’t do in two years. (2 likes).

Stephen Harper Seeks to Tap Into Ford Nation Base

Yeah, good luck with that, Steve. And BTW, I donated to Ford’s campaign. I did not (and do not) live in Toronto. Of course, at the time, I didn’t know Ford was a pathological liar and a drug addict and had a personal and family criminal history. I repudiated my previous support of Stephen Harper (circa 2006) and quickly repudiated my support for Ford when I learned I had been had AGAIN. Too bad there are so many simple-minded neocons that just can admit they have been had, too. (1 like).

Ooooh, aaahhh, an envelope from The Right Honourable Stephen J. Harper, P.C., M.P.

2015-10-05 Stephen Harper Fundraising Letter Envelope Refused
Admail (Canada Post lingo for junk mail) from the Conservative Party.

I’m sure there are people out there (one or two maybe) who would be thrilled to get a letter purporting to come from the office of the prime minister. I am not one of them. As indicated by the “admail” stamp, and the return address of the Conservative Party of Canada, this is clearly a fundraising appeal from Steve.

I’m not sure when it was that I gave up on the Conservative Party. Was it when Deborah Grey turned her back on her fellow Reform members who got her there and stuck her fat nose in the parliamentary “pension” trough? Or was it when the former signatory of Conservative fundraising letters Irving Gerstein ended up in the senate?

I’m not even sure how these bastards got my home address because I sure as hell didn’t keep their membership department updated. And when I wrote to the beasts, I used my P.O. box as my return address.

What an ingenious bunch these neocons are.

I’m voting NDP this time around. And if by some miracle: a) they are elected and; b) they don’t screw things up, I just might vote for them again next election.

On the other hand, if and when the Conservative Party redeems itself and chooses for itself a leader who is worth of being called a libertarian conservative (not a new world order fascist), and someone who is completely removed from not only the current regime but the larger new world order agenda, I’ll be back. Until then, I don’t want to hear from these sons of bitches.

As for the envelope, I didn’t open it. I’m putting it back in the mail box.

Back to hell,where you came from, Steve.

Carolynn Ioanonni is the NDP’s candidate for Niagara Falls in the October 19th federal election

Carolynn Ioanonni Tom Mulcair
Niagara Falls city counciwoman Carolynn Ioanonni poses with federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair during a campaign stop at Niagara Helicopters on August 16, 2015.

Dear Mrs. Ioanonni:

I would like you to know that, as a lifelong PC / Reform / Alliance / Conservative voter (I once lived in Burnaby Kingsway; I never had the opportunity to vote for Svend Robinson, however I would have done so regardless of politics because he was an excellent MP and activist for his constituents), I will be voting for you this time. You can also count on the support of my wife, Melissa, as well.

I wrote your leader, Mr. Mulcair, a letter on June 1, 2015. I reproduced this letter on my humble blog effort, LettersToTheBeast.com. This message will also end up on my blog.

(https://letterstothebeast.com/2015/06/04/canadian-conservatives-electing-and-ndp-government-is-the-only-way-to-preserve-and-regain-our-freedoms-including-the-freedom-to-rebuild-the-conservative-party/)

The gist of this letter is to that I will support your party in this election, but Mr. Mulcair, and an equally capable finance minister, need to restrain the far-left agenda types that may also find themselves elected. In short, your party will need a clone of Paul Martin. Andrew Thomson, should he be elected, would be acceptable.

If your party surprises right-leaning Canadians by governing responsibly not going overboard with crazy promises, I will be happy to vote for you again.

Should Mr. Mulcair become prime minister, I would expect his first act of office to be to introduce legislation to repeal not only bill C-51, but C-38 and all the other draconian legislation Mr. Nicholson, as well as Messrs. Toews and MacKay have stickhandled through parliament in the guise of “omnibus bills.”

It goes without saying that I would also expect you, personally, to be accessible as our member of parliament. I’m not saying I expect you to invite your constituents to drop over and chat in your back yard as our previous M.P. Gary Pilletteri did (though it would be a nice gesture). But I would expect you to hold regular public meetings, to answer your mail, return phone calls and meet with your constituents in your office. Mr. Nicholson has been in hiding for a decade and it is beyond me how he continued being elected term after term.

I have sent your office a small donation (for myself and my wife) and I will undertake to send more in over the course of the election as my finances permit.

Not to end on an unpleasant point, but should you be elected (and I hope you are), and your party attains power, I can promise you will never here the end of me if Mr. Mulcair goes Bob Rae in a hurry.

Thank you and good luck.

Canadian conservatives: Electing an NDP government is the only way to preserve and regain our freedoms; including the freedom to rebuild the Conservative Party

June 1, 2015

Mr. Thomas Mulcair, M.P.

House of Commons

Ottawa, Ontario

K1A 0A5

Dear Mr. Mulcair:

I am writing to first congratulate your party on your provincial colleagues’ win in Alberta last month. I am also writing to tell you that, as a conservative, I will be taking a huge chance and voting for your party federally in the next general election. Clearly the good people of Alberta feel as I do.

I am hopeful that your party can find a candidate here in Niagara Falls that can pull off a win as impressive as Wayne Gates did in the past provincial general election and by-election.

Yours was the only party who opposed the “anti-terrorism” legislation, bill C-51. And you, personally, were the only politician in the country who had the courage to point out certain questions with regards to the purported death of USAma bin-Laden.

While I realize an NDP government would have certain loyalties and agendas to implement, I would ask that a Mulcair administration:

  • End Canadian participation in the U.S. War of Terror and “war on drugs.”

  • Repeal all Harper regime legislation which seeks to implement a police state

  • Restore constitutional freedoms

  • End unconditional support for the government of israel, stop all foreign aid to that government and cease enabling its war crimes

  • introduce legislation to elect senators in the long term. And in the short term, do not appoint any senators under the age of 70.

  • Pardon all Canadians convicted of victimless (i.e. drug possession) crimes, and release those currently caged.

  • Repeal Canada – U.S. – “border security” arrangements which seek to allow U.S. Police agents to operate and be armed in our country.

  • Eliminate the parliamentary “pension plan” for current members of parliament and investigate repudiating past obligations.

  • Order the RCMP to open an impartial investigation into criminal code offenses and War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity offenses committed by members of the Harper regime and appoint a special prosecutor.

To be clear, I oppose many of the policies of the NDP. As a resident of Ontario throughout the Bob Rae government of the 1990s, you can understand why. I abhor big government, even bigger taxation, a cradle-to-grave nanny-state and gun-grabbing. I am under no illusion that you and I will see eye-to-eye on those matters. However, even Bob Rae surprised us. Unfortunately, it was too late by then.

I am certain, however, that if you want to implement your socialist agenda, you have to give Canadians the tools make the money in order to pay the taxes to do so. First and foremost, we need the banksters thrown off of parliament hill. We need the Bank of Canada – if not abolished – to at least work for Canadians. We can accomplish that by ordering the Bank to return to its original purpose of issuing credit to the government of Canada at zero interest. And issuing our public currency at no cost. As it stands now, every “dollar” issued by the Bank of Canada is a loan at interest.

We can also agree that paying interest on debt is a waste of money that could better be used for good of Canadians. Paul Martin had us on the road to paying off our debt. Our country needs to be debt-free while it is still mathematically possible. Canadians need to understand that banks thrive on debt – both consumer and public. Nothing will bring the banksters to heel quite like becoming debt-free. Just make sure you are wearing your Kevlar underpants because the Rothschilds and the “federal” “reserve” won’t be happy with you (see Iraq, Libya, Iran and Syria for examples of their displeasure).

We need a government that will repudiate past governments’ one-way trade deals, particularly with China and Mexico. Allowing corporations to move their factories to third-world countries with no environmental, labour or wage legislation and then ship their goods back here tariff-free makes absolutely no sense. It is a simple matter to re-instate countervailing duties. Governments – both Conservative and Liberal – had such policies in place for over a century prior to NAFTA. If the Trans-Pacific Partnership is implemented in Canada by the Harper regime, I would expect your government to repudiate and repeal it, in its entirety.

If your future government is willing to restore our constitutional freedoms and do what is necessary to bring good-paying manufacturing jobs back to Canada, even if it means displeasing Wall Street, and if your government does not succumb to the temptation of going overboard with socialism, I believe you can count on the support of millions of conservative Canadians.

Canadians have never opposed paying a reasonable level of taxation. However, we expect something in return. We want good roads, good schools, hospitals, fire departments, police as servants of the people, our neighbours taken care of in times of need. On the other hand, using our hard-earned tax money to fund a state spy grid, government corruption, Wall Street, the City of London, foreign aid to third-world despots, sending our military around the world to make the world safe for U.S. Dollar hegemony, and funding israeli government war crimes are NOT a wise use of our money. Or the lives of our young people, for that matter.

I am a conservative. And I am a union member. And I am willing to give your party a chance. This once.

israel - Thomas Mulcair

In closing, should you be chosen by the people of Canada to be Prime Minister this Fall, I would expect you to lay down the law with your future caucus: If any member is found to be working for a foreign influence (i.e. a foreign government – even israel -, a globalist organization such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission or Bilderberg, or a bank or corporation) he or she will be expelled from caucus and your party. Mr. Mulcair, Libby Davies was right. And you were wrong.

Sincerely,

P.S.: Please, sir. Don’t stab us in the back like Obama did to his supporters.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA): Fair Use / Editorial Response

Asshole of the week: Canadian senator The Reverend Donald Meredith. The man can’t even get laid by someone his own age


I feel that I may have been to hasty in my judgment regarding the good Senator Reverend Meredith. After all, he is a man of the cloth. And the fact that a) he is diddling the girls; and b) the girls are not pre-pubescent is a step in the right direction.

For the benefit of LettersToTheBeast readers outside of Canada, Canadian senators are not elected; they are appointed by the sitting prime minister (in this case Stephen “Steve” Harper). Incredibly, a Canadian senate appointment is virtually a job for life. Their “term” ends on their 75th birthday. Nor surprisingly , senators are held in very low esteem by Canadians.

The Canadian senate, since its creation in 1867, has been nothing more than the ultimate reward for loyal party service.

Amending the Canadian constitution has proved to be nearly impossible. However, there would be nothing stopping a government from introducing legislation directing, Elections Canada, the independent federal elections authority, to hold elections for senate candidates and for the prime minister to act on that “advice” from the voters accordingly.

Stephen Harper originally ran on a platform which included, among other things, reform of the senate. Sadly, this is but one of many promises that he has broken.

Meredith was appointed by Harper in 2008. This means he would have voted on all of the objectionable legislation that has been passed by the Harper regime, including the recent “anti-terrorism” act, bill C-58.

If you have a problem with my using unfortunate language when writing to politicians, that’s really your problem. I do not recognize the legitmacy of the Harper regime. It has repeatedly acted outside the law. It has engaged in and enabled war crimes. We have seen nearly a decade of non-stop corruption and criminality. Canadians have no duty to obey a law passed with the help of characters such as Meredith.

I often say politicians in Canada and elsewhere should thank their lucky stars that we are still at the Angry Letter Writing stage. Two centuries ago, tyrants would have feared my American ancestors showing up on their doorsteps with pitchforks, tar, feather and of course, torches.

If Niagara Falls voters do not re-elect him as their M.P., he will be removed from his position as minister, even if the Harper regime is re-elected.

All that power and money and you sons of bitches can’t even get laid by someone in your own age group? I’M LAUGHING AT YOU, BOB. YOU ARE PATHETIC. ALL OF YOU.

Can’t wait till October and the voters kick your sorry ass out of office. I hope Prime Minister Mulcair has the courage to appoint a team of special prosecutors and investigates what the hell has gone on up there for the past decade. I’d start with you, Nicholson. You have been fighting for police to have unlimited power and resources for years now. I disagree with your position, but in your case I am willing to make an exception.

Your pension will REALLY go far in the Collins Bay canteen.

PS: We’re the boss, Nicholson. Not you. Don’t you ever forget it. The day Canadians allow themselves to be terrorized by government ( like our American friends) is the day we’ve lost our country forever. No goddamn way, Nicholson. Not in my lifetime.

Ottawa teenager went to Toronto Star with allegation of two-year affair that began when she was 16

The teen told the Star the relationship began with chats online that became suggestive in nature, and progressed to include sexual intimacy, including intercourse after she turned 18.

The Criminal Code defines the age of consent in Canada as 18 if sexual activity occurs in a relationship of authority, trust or dependency.

Meredith, 50, is  an ordained minister at a Pentecostal church in Vaughan, Ont. He ran unsuccessfully for the Tories in Toronto Centre in a 2008 byelection.

The Senate confirmed last week it had undertaken a workplace review in February amid rumours of harassment and bullying in Meredith’s office. No formal complaint was made.

The concerns related to at least four employees.

In the past decade, you have done absolutely nothing for the Niagara region. On the contrary, plants have continued to close and jobs – real jobs, not part-time season gigs on Clifton Hill – have continued to disappear.

Your regime has conspired with regimes around the world to implement worldwide fascism through the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Your office has refused to send me a text copy of this “agreement.”

Thirty of your partners-in-crime have seen the writing on the wall, Bob.

It’s pretty bad when we’ve gotten to the point where the only mainstream party that appears to be able to extricate Canadians from this mess and restore our freedoms is the N.D.P. My only fear is that a Prime Minister Thomas Mulcair will go Obama on us (i.e. as opposed to repairing the damage of the previous administration, only accelerating it).

As a conservative, I abhor socialism, big government, high taxes and structural deficits (i.e. what we have right now). But after eight years of incremental fascism under the Harper regime, socialism starts to look pretty good. The key is for Canadians to retain their freedoms to oppose whatever policies an NDP government might bring in and reverse them if necessary.

Now, Bob, I know that you, Peter and the rest of your cronies are counting on a nice Senate sinecure. After all, nothing is more dangerous than a cornered animal. Especially one who has nothing to lose. I hope you enjoy your gig there because I promise you that will be the last straw for Canadians.

We will take back our country and our freedoms, Bob. And you are frankly too old and too stupid to do anything to stop us.

Room 207, North Wing

Main Legislative Building

Queen’s Park
Toronto, Ontario

M7A 1A8

Fax 1-416-325-2166

 

Dear Mr. Hiller:

 

To put it succinctly, as a former P.C. Ontario party member, I’m asking you to take the bull by the horns and put an end to this nonsense.

 

I voted for my local P.C. candidate in whatever part of the province I happened to reside from 1990 through 2011. When I lived in Orangeville, I voted for Ernie Eves and John Tory. In the 2011 election, I decided I had enough. I voted for a young man running under the Libertarian banner here in Niagara Falls.

 

If your party ever wishes to have my vote again, it will field an acceptable leader and an acceptable local candidate. Last election, it did neither. By acceptable local candidate, I would exclude anybody who is a lawyer or an accountant. And by acceptable leader, I mean you.

 

Tim Hudak has proved himself to be even more incompetent than John Tory. And after the 2007 election, I wouldn’t have thought it possible. Hudak managed to lose to a known pathological liar. The people of Ontario cannot afford another four years of the Liberal Party. Premiers Wynne and McGuinty make Bob Rae look like Mike Harris in comparison.

 

According to Elections Ontario, voter turnout in 1995 was 63% and dropped to 58% in 1999. It has continued to drop through the 2003 and 2007 elections. In 2011, it was a whopping 48%. It is not unreasonable to suggest that conservative voters stayed home rather than hold their noses and vote for a party led by Eves, Tory and Hudak. Had my choices only been P.C., Liberal or N.D.P. in the last election, I would have stayed home as well. Unfortunately, most people have become convinced that if they vote for a “fringe” party, they are throwing their vote away.

There has to be an intervention with Tim Hudak as well as Tom Long, Leslie Noble and whoever else is in his entourage (it wouldn’t surprise me to find Jamie Watt hanging on as well). It has to be made clear to Hudak he won’t be around to lead the next election. And his hangers-on have to understand they’ve had a good run since the Harris days, but it’s time for them to go as well.

 

This has nothing to do with rules or procedures. The party made a mistake and it must correct it as soon as possible. In 1983, Joe Clark realized that, even though he won a clear majority of his leadership review, he could not win the next election. Not that I’m suggesting that Brian Mulroney was a particularly good choice, either. But Mulroney did deliver a crushing landslide in 1984.

 

Mr. Hiller, you have considerable street cred amongst libertarian conservatives such as myself. I was impressed with your grand jury legislation. My only criticism is that it doesn’t go far enough. Should you ever be premier, or at least in a position of power, returning a citizen grand jury (one that is free from interference from politicians, judges and prosecutors) would be a major blow for freedom for Ontarians.

 

I hope the London convention will change the name of the party to the Conservative Party. Of course, I also hope the new Conservative Party actually governs under conservative principles which, unfortunately, are absent from the federal party.

 

Should you find yourself in a leadership position in the P.C. Party, I would be delighted to purchase a new membership. However, if my alternative is joining other conservatives and withholding my support, I am willing to sacrifice yet another Liberal term if that is what it takes to rebuild this party.

 

I wish you every success.

I was always diligent about making sure my remarks conformed to your “community guidelines.” I didn’t make slanderous remarks. I didn’t cuss. I stayed on topic. I rarely even used capital letters. Unless of course I was talking about the CBC. In which case, I wrote it as C.B.C.

At first, it was obvious that my comments were being “disabled” for no other reason than they offended the political sensibilities of your censor. And yes, they are censors. Then I looked into Viafoura. And then I.C.U.C. I learned how I.C.U.C., in particular, was in the business of the “management” of their clients’ reputations on-line.

For comments involving mass-shootings, I would ask what medications the shooter might have been on. I would “talk” about S.S.R.I.s. I would refer to the possibility that the shooter may have been using products which are advertised on evening newscasts in the United States. Such comments, or mere references, were always deleted. I guess I.C.U.C. must count pharmaceutical companies amongst their clients.

Comments about Israel? Citizens of Israel? Members of the financial industry? Oh, you bet. Gone. Expressing my disdain for people who behave like Nazis? “Content disabled.”

Complaining about the manipulation of the stock market, or the over-representation of Goldman Sachs alumni in governments around the world were also magnets for “content disabled.”

Using the words “Peter Mansbridge?” Content disabled.

When somebody would respond to a comment making some reference to my wearing a tin-foil hat (isn’t that a violation of your community guidelines right there?) I would point out how many of the things Big Media talks about now were the domain of “conspiracy kooks” only a year ago. Such responses are routinely blocked.

So somebody can use your comments section to call me a tin-foil hat wearer. But I can’t say that maybe it’s time for the CBC to head down to Austin, Texas and interview Alex Jones. Again. Which you did, by the way.

Mentioning that Pamela Wallen and Mike Duffy used to be CBC employees? As did fellow high-flyers Michaelle Jean and Adrienne Clarkson? Zap! You people are such control freaks that I can’t even mention your former colleagues?

So when a story has 500 or 1,000 comments (or more), what is the actual number? And how many of those comments were “disabled” in order to deceive readers into believing something that isn’t true?

Upon further research, I read a Bloomberg News article about Viafoura and how my comments would end up on some laptop computer in any given far-off country. Whether it would be “approved” is at the whim of some college student in Mexico, the Philippines or Israel.

I would not be as upset if every other news outlet operated in the same way. But they don’t. I will concede that the comments section of the Toronto Sun is well suited to their readership. But the fact is the Globe and Mail and National Post have just as many challenges regarding language, libel, bullying, etc, as you do. But they don’t resort to pre-censoring comments. And they still manage to have lively debates and intelligent discourse. As an aside, I used to participate in the Sun’s comments section, but I became confused over whether I was a right-wing lunatic or a left-tard lieberal so I left them.

I’m not going to waste my time on you people any longer. I went into my PCTools setting and set up cbc.ca as a banned website in my house. While perusing Google news, this will prevent any of us from clicking on one of your stories by mistake. We do not have cable, so we’re not funding you. Of course, you still have a direct – albeit diminishing – pipeline into my paycheque. But hopefully that will change soon.

We don’t have cable so you’re not getting my money that way.

When the next round of cuts is announced, you’d better not count on people like me to rally to your support. At this point, the CBC can rot for all I care. If I can’t even leave a comment on your website that questions what medication a dead criminal is on or point out war atrocities in the middle east, you are no better than Fox News.

I have a brain so I don’t believe most of what is reported anyway. And I wasn’t afraid to express such skepticism in your comments section. Every once in a while, such sentiments actually made it past your censors.

I sure am happy Russia Today makes itself available on-line, free of charge. And they have an uncensored comments site.

The question I have to ask as a taxpayer is this: How much money is the C.B.C. spending on censoring its comments section. And how, exactly, do you think that is helping matters any? I mean, it’s not as if such information isn’t readily available elsewhere.

I’ve wasted as much time with you people as I care to. I’m done. I’m out. Good luck on the next round of lay-offs.

Justin Trudeau, it’s time to stop dicking around

June 13, 2014 (original incorrectly dated at January 13)

Mr. Justin Trudeau, M.P.

House of Commons

Ottawa, Ontario

K1A 0A6

Dear Mr. Trudeau:

As a conservative-minded Canadian and former Conservative voter, I am writing to appeal to you and your party to get your (crap) together before the next election.

Here in Niagara Falls, we have a patriotic duty to our country to make sure our current member of parliament, Rob Nicholson, is not re-elected. He is a proponent of the police state and for that he needs to go. He should have been defeated in 2011. Unfortunately, your party chose to field an ineffective, incompetent candidate.

I would like to share with you a sampling of the intellectual heavyweight your provincial cousins chose to offer us, based on his purportedly self-written profile in the Niagara Falls Review newspaper of June 11, 2014:

Why I’m running/key issues: The focus of Lionel’s (sic) campaign has three elements: jobs, transportation and health care. I believes (sic) that I can bring jobs to Niagara, to reinvigorate and revive Niagara’s failing industrial sector. I am committed to bringing regular GO Transit service to Niagara so that Niagara will be connected to the rest of the province. I believes (sic) that all people of Niagara have a fundamental entitlement to quality accessible health care and that a hospital must be built sooner, rather than later, to address the needs of southern Niagara’s citizens.

—Lionel Tupman, age 26, lawyer

Mr. Tupman came in third place, 17,000 votes behind NDP incumbent Wayne Gates. Voters probably did this rich kid from Niagara-on-the-Lake a favour because on the first day of his campaign, he vowed to sue someone who had created a fake twitter account. If the boy doesn’t understand that dirty tricks and people saying mean things about you go hand-in-hand with politics, then the provincial riding association really screwed up with this one.

If your party expects my vote in the next federal election, you will field a candidate who will serve as a credible, engaging representative of the people. Hopefully somebody high-profile. Sticking us with whatever parasitic lawyer who is able to win the nomination will not cut it with me.

If the Liberal Party isn’t identifying ridings with current Conservative cabinet ministers and making those a high priority, then you are not doing your job as leader. In the case of Niagara Falls, it’s not just a matter of getting a winning candidate. It’s a national emergency. We have a member of parliament and cabinet minister who is an open opponent of the constitution. He advocates unlimited powers for police, supports the U.S. War of Terror, and is accelerating the policy of imprisoning Canadians for victimless offenses.

The only circumstances under which I would vote for your party is if both its leader and its party advocated a platform of a constitutional restoration, and a return to the fiscal sanity that Mr. Martin provided. I often express my regret for not voting (or at least supporting) your party when Paul Martin was leader and finance minister. He was the closest thing our country got to a true conservative leader.

You will also need to repudiate the policy of one-way free trade deals espoused by Messrs. Chretien and Martin. There are only two ways manufacturing will return and thus the depression will end: a) impose countervailing duties on goods manufactured by slaves with no labour, wage or environmental regulations or; b) Canadians must be willing to work for 25 cents per hour, 12 hours per day, seven days per week in factories with suicide nets. If Ontarians thought “b” was practical, Mr. Hudak would have won by a landslide last night.

While I could be persuaded to vote Liberal in the next federal election if that is what it takes to remove my current M.P. from office, if your party were to abandon its policies of gun-grabbing, blind obedience to Israel and implementing “carbon taxes” in the name of propagating the global warming hoax, I would gladly become a member as well.

For now, I am content to accept baby steps. End the “war on drugs” (and I don’t even smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol, by the way), stop supporting the War of Terror, and reign in the police state. That, and cut spending and reduce taxes.

Up until 2004, we had an excellent Member of Parliament here in Niagara Falls: Gary Pilleteri. Mr. Pilleteri was a throwback to the way M.P.s used to be. And should be now. When he wasn’t in Ottawa, he could be found at his winery in Niagara on the Lake. Occasionally, I used to drop by and chat with him in his back yard. If it wasn’t for the fact that the man is pushing 80, I would drop by his winery and plead with him to run again. Did I happen to mention that I am a conservative?

Who is Rob Nicholson? Other than on television or in my mailbox, I have never seen his face. I have never seen him while walking down the street, or riding the city bus, or shopping. And he sure hasn’t invited me to join him in his back yard. For the years I have lived here, I can’t remember him even holding a public event (“town hall meeting” or something along those lines.

He is completely ineffective as a member of parliament. And the fault is partially your parties for consistently failing to offer up a credible candidate.

It is called the House of Commons for a reason: the house of the common people. Not a club for lawyers and accountants. We need more people with real jobs and real life experience in Ottawa. I will never vote for a lawyer or an accountant because they are only there to perpetuate job security for their respective occupations.

Mr. Trudeau, this is our last chance to push back against fascism. As leader of the Liberal Party, you need to put the interests of Canadians ahead of your party if you care about the future of your children.

We can’t afford to fool around in the upcoming election. As the Harper Regime becomes more tyrannical and more fascist, this may be our last chance.
