Politics in Canada
Andrea Horwath's Ontario New Democrats starting to implode?
After just one year at the helm of the already leaky ship known as the Ontario New Democratic Party, under Andrea Horwath the ship maybe ready to sink as she continues to lose control over her party and her members.
Portrayed as the fresh, new and moderate face of the Ontario NDP to the public, within her party she is quickly gaining the reputation of old labour guard, hypocrite and autocrat if Facebook, Rabble, the Toronto Star and general political gossip are anything to go by.
I have stumbled upon the following information while doing research on a Calgary MP. I thought it might be of interest:
Since this letter is rather lengthy, I will provide the following summary, followed by the letter. I do urge you to also read the letter as it contains a lot of information I cannot include in a summary:
· Calgary Centre MP, Lee Richardson, is the director and chairman of Streetlight Intelligence Inc. (http://ciec-ccie.gc.ca/ClientDeclarationPreviewMembers.aspx?DeclarationI..., http://streetlightiq.com/About/InvestorRelations/BoardofDirectors/tabid/... )
Some gems from Ann Coulter's speech at UWO:
“As a 17-year-old student of this university, Muslim, should I be converted to Christianity? Second of all, since I don’t have a magic carpet, what other modes do you suggest,” Al-Dhaher said to loud and sustained applause.
“I thought it was just American public schools that produced ignorant people,” Coulter replied, prompting her own round of applause.
Coulter then noted many Japanese were converted to Christianity after the Second World War and “we haven’t heard a peep out of them.”
So I was came across an article in today's Star where basically Mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi insists that he isn't "Right Wing" that he is instead a "pragmatist" he doesn't eat meat (why that would matter in the left-right spectrum is beyond me) and this old chestnut he actually bikes himself! Instead he states he is "fiscally conservative, socially liberal" Shit, if I heard a nickle for everytime I hear that, and further he is neither left nor right both phrases I've heard the Green Party spout for quite some time. Anyways, discuss.
Humberto DaSilva won the Not Rex Murphy contest on rabble. If you missed the contest, you can read about it at: http://rabble.ca/rabbletv/notrex .
Here is Humberto's first Not Rex commentary, on the Greek economic crisis. Athough the Greek Debt Crisis is being blamed on deficits, Wall Street firms have been profiting on Greek debt for years.
Check out the video. Any feedback for Humberto?
