This pesky coalition business

One of the most prominent issues of the current Canadian election campaign is the idea of coalitions. Stephen Harper, the right wing Conservative leader, presents them as an affront to Canadian values and all that is right about our democracy. The absurd position, which has no historical foundation, is not countered in any substantial way by the other parties.

Stop Harper/Ignatieff's corporate coalition

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Location

Bahen Centre
40 St. George street UofT, north of College
Toronto
Canada

The twin parties of corporate Canada, the Conservatives and Liberals, have formed an unofficial coalition to extend the war in Afghanistan, block climate justice, and promote austerity measures. Join a discussion about the real coalition threat, and how we can mobilize against it both during and after the election.

Just in: All 3 opposition parties to vote against Conservative budget

The government is on the verge of collapse. Layton on right now has unequivocally rejected this budget on the heels of the other 2 opposition leaders announcing their opposition.

Off to the races.

While world powers backtracked on global warming at the Cancún conference in December, vigorous protests inside and outside the conference spoke for the world's peoples in our struggle for climate justice. Over 190 countries met in December 2010 to come up with an agreement to respond to the world climate crisis. Come and listen to the reports of Canadians who went there to witness the negotiations.

Organize to Win! Workshop

Citizens’ groups fighting to protect natural spaces, stop incinerators, ensure more sustainable planning etc. are usually outgunned by “experts,” outmaneuvered by municipal staff, shut out by local media and outfoxed by politicians. But citizens groups can beat all these odds and win. Learn how at the Organize to Win seminar led by Oakvillegreen Conservation Association president Liz Benneian, an award-winning community activist and environmental leader.

Harper Using "Coalition" To Hide Lack of Ideas

Taken from my blog at: http://progressforcanada.blogspot.com/:

The Coalition's coming!! Quick, tell all Canadians to be on the look out for those nasty parties who want to take down the government. No, this isn't hyperbole. Actually, it's the message that the Harper government has been relentlessly pounding away at over the summer and looks to use with increased vigor in this new session of Parliament.

Unite the Left: NDP, Greens, Bloc

"Unite the Left" talk always seems to revolve around the NDP and the Liberals, which routinely founders on the fact that the Liberals have always been a party of the Centre, not the Left. Anyone who wants to consider a partisan re-alignment on the Left should give serious thought to the prospects of uniting Canada's three broadly social democratic parties - the NDP, the Greens and the Bloc Quebecois.

Coalition by the Numbers

Dumb, dumb and dumber....this accurately describes Michael Ignatieff's Just Say No approach to a pre-election coalition with the NDP.
