Chief advisors to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and PEI Premier Robert Ghiz openly peddle influence and pad full their pockets too, evidently.
Bruce Carson, a former trusted Harperite was trying to form what he called a Blue Ribbon group to influence a National Energy plan. The funding was quickly directed to Carson as he was charging somewhere around $160,000.00 dollars per year plus expenses, essentially advancing the view of major energy companies providing the funding. Blue Chip influence pedlars like Frank McKenna joined the Blue Ribbon group. The RCMP have seized materials investigating Carson for crimes.
Not to be outdone in PEI former confidant of Premier Ghiz, Chris LeClair has launched a local version of a “Blue Ribbon” consulting group with failed Liberal candidate Cynthia somebody. The PEI lobby group is acting on behalf of the french fry processors who want to raid the water table in PEI for french fry irrigation. LeClair presents himself at McInnes Cooper as some kind of “solutions” genius although we can only see a balding arts grad.
Bravo for PEI and Robert Ghiz and your ability to be so cutting edge in terms of political patronage and personal enrichment for the entitled elite you represent. Bravo from Red Like Me.
Harpers new strict rules on how Canadians get a vote in public elections, has eliminated millions of disenfranchised Canadians from their vote. In particular, any current social media driven spurning that might influence millions of Canadians to vote has been blockaded in regulations. Take your lawyer with you to vote if you are not on the list, maybe a judge too, in case.
Millions of Canadians do not vote and that increases the net effect of every ballot cast. The text’er segment of our society is a large group whom could effect immensely an election. It is a large group that seemingly manifests huge numbers of people showing up, motivated by issue in tweets. Harper has cut off the unpredictable un polled tweeter’s from any last minute decisions to vote. Anyone who could gather up all that currently do not vote would leap frog all the existing party controls in Canada. The party must remain in control of the vote according to Harpers new laws for Canadians. No more polling surprises eh.
Having a gold card from any Canadian Bank will ensure you get a ballot handed to you, other than that no surprise voters are welcome or allowed in future Canadian elections. I have experienced having my name removed from the electoral list, probably just some political jerry rigging or just a mistake though. The new rules are discriminatory. funny eh?
While the economy gets hammered by greed driven oil pricing, the economy and dollar drop, Canadians are reminded daily how much better off we are than the rest of the world since the economic collapse caused by banking greed in the USA. Canadian Banks have been reporting record profits and they did well evidently.
Poor people in Canada are charged excessive and discriminatory fees and charges which no politicians are challenging except Thomas Mulcair and the NDP. On banks the Harper and Trudeau teams are like minded, leave them alone at their trough. Poor people don’t usually vote and with Harpers new rules they are eliminated from voting in Canada.
Politicians are running around barking about training funds and EI programs while Harpers team yips about cell phone charges and says the consumer comes first. Only Thomas Mulcair is mentioning heaped up Canadian Banks fees on the poor driving record profits. The elephant in the room goes unmentioned by Harper, Trudeau and all the Premiers busying themselves to save a middle class that does not exist.
At the recent Federal Liberal convention in Montreal, of all people, a contingent from PEI proposed some concerns for the poor which may be adopted in the election platform as a ‘plank’, they hope. Over 15% of Canadians are poor and all of their children are hungry.
Such a proposal from PEI Liberals is blatant party hypocrisy and shameful. Liberal Judges jump into the liberal papers promoting Trudeau and the new orders for the poor.
However, the Liberal party of PEI has been in majority for years, documented bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars to the economy. They dumped in the lap of seven chosen local professional firms over 140 million dollars while handing out 120 million dollars to Liberals. Not one poor poor person got a dime.
The PEI Liberals whom Trudeau endorses have more than doubled the debt of PEI while increasing every tax and fee possible. The Liberals amongst all the lavish personal glory and self congratulations never gave the poor any kind of break. Income support is pathetical and has not been adjusted for decades.
The Liberals in PEI have done nothing for the poor and Trudeau should speak to it if he expects 4 seats in PEI. Islanders better start using any measure of success before they continue to vote like sheep. Federal parties care about Toronto not the Maritimes which are being hollowed out. Our local representatives sit in Ottawa to protect who?
While the election 2 years away gets into full swing, it is very current to talk about the “middle class” who have long since disappeared from Canada. The most profitable and famous business constituents of the country the Canadian Banks, have long ago established a two class state they framed with the introduction of gold plastic cards.
The Banks have been coy in long ago changing the credit card name from Chargex to Visa. It was brilliant marketing as a charge meant you would have to pay but a visa is something that allows you to do anything freely. When you present yourself at your Bank with a gold card you are addressed as Sir or Madam, rather than the “What can I do for You” reception for the common fool, with a lousy red card. Its conditioned and fostered in all the Banks and it is pervading our society.
The concept that you are nothing if you do not have all kinds of money is repeated like a mantra by financial guru ego maniac Kevin O’Leary while he appears almost as a pop up, on every CBC broadcast, repulsive in his greed and egomania in concert.
While the Banks have been gorging on successive and excessive record profits fees have been heaped on the red card users. Poor people have to pay up to twenty dollars per month just to have an account with no services. While Prime Minister Harper and visionary Trudeau wax on about the middle class, neither will mention the greedy banks. Many Canadians do not have god cards and they are nothing short of card carrying modern day pleb’s. funny eh?
The PEI Premier broke all the rules awarding an Order Of PEI Medal to someone who had met none of the measures to receive the award. The award is supposed to be given to individuals nominated and approved through a defined “non politicized” process. PEI hands out only 3 of the lapel pins a year and nominations for this year were closed.
We have the legislative power to re write the act and push the paper through the Liberal dominated legislature, we can right any and all our transgressions of the act, Ghiz stated. Ghiz operates the legislature to readily adopt any restrictive acts of democracy, just the same way Harper runs his party controlled “democratic” Parliament. Neither Harper or Ghiz has any respect for acts put in place to protect the public good, the party patronage always comes first.
Party politics once winning a majority drives its own agenda without any democracy conscience. These are shameful times for Canada.
Sure the Province may be smaller than most towns in population, but indeed it is a Province too. PEI has a modern version of Mata Hari who was an exotic dancer/prostitute in the early 1900′s convicted of spying for the Germans, then executed by firing squad.
A Dean of UPEI is a pimp in the Mata Hari web and also a Provincial Minister who both frequently sleep with this male prostitute. The individual has been cited for inappropriate and fraudulent behaviour at various government and institution placements provided to him by the ruling provincial Liberals. He is safe on the PEI payroll and protected because he often threatens to out his ‘clients’ as retaliation if he is punished or outed. Sometimes people who want to stay in the closet are dragged out, so to speak.
Always seeking information on behalf of the Liberal party and reporting back to the fifth floor Ghiz ‘situation room’ where corruption and immoral behaviour is essential for entry. Islanders delight in world class achievements from the tiny Province but they deny, ignore and never mention the obvious unsavoury amongst them. To be sure this PEI prostitute has made boastful claims for his achievements without conscience.
The fact that the Premier, a Minister of PEI and Professors of UPEI have a male prostitute within their ranks and used for covert missions to slander smear and defame identified opponents is yet another claim to fame for PEI. Further evidence supporting the “We are a Province too”, declaration so often heard on the Island. Congratulations PEI, your province is every bit as disgusting as any other corrupted political party anywhere in the world.
It is 2014 and celebrating is the order of the day from our dear leader Ghiz. If you can identify Mata Hari in PEI you can win a free Red Like Me book about PEI corruption.
When John Baird warned Russia not to take more provocative measures in the Ukraine revolution, we can only imagine Putin’s response to be along the lines of ‘or else what’?
Is Baird out of his mind? We know he is like minded with Harper, are they both out of their right minds? Putin wasted little time pushing through approvals in Russia to use military force in the Ukraine after being warned by US President Obama. Putin never acknowledged Baird’s advice or his presence.
Putin is determined to make the west look weak and he will not be chided by Obama, much less by homosexual John Baird. Is Baird hoping at garnering points with the GBLT and Q group while threatening Russia? Should we send a GBLT Minister like Baird to a country hostile to these individuals. There is a war in Ukraine and Harper wants in perhaps.
When did Canada become a superpower? When did we authorize Harper to make us into a warring nation and do we want Baird out mouthing off?
PEI Premier Ghiz spoke out about the new jobs training funding and failed to mention it is all Federal Funds. The training funds are entirely from Ottawa and Harper wants accountable results from real training.
PEI has been handing out funds intended for training to phoney schools like Pam MacDonald runs in Souris PEI. Pam and her outfit are paid thousands to pretend they are training skills. Attendance is mandatory for welfare or EI recipients to learn how to comb your hair. Combing your hair may be important but should Pam be paid thousands as a Liberal pal to teach skills she may not exhibit herself?
Training funds in PEI are openly abused by restauranteur’s Murphy Group who enlist everyone they can as a trainee. Normally staff are trained in the interest and at the expense of the business but Murphy Group are welfare junkie Liberal pals of Ghiz.
Naturally Ghiz will cut the training from the Native council first now that he has been curtailed in handing over transfer funds to Liberal pals.
The processors of french fries for fast food outlets are railroading the PEI public into allowing them access to deep water wells for irrigation. The public are informed by this lobby effort that there is plenty of water and it will make them more competitive.
Islanders better wake up and smell the coffee, quick. The fix is in for the processors led by Irvings and McCains who have hire local political influence to force the issue on island MLA’s. It looks like Minister Sherry learned her trained seal skills well when Ghiz had her in Public accounts and now as Minister of Environment she is repeating her seal barking on command.
PEI has the worst water problems in Canada because its all ground sourced, drawing the water down will only cause further damage. If we are to allow corporations to impose will upon us for competition reasons we better shut down the department of environment. PEI department of environment has failed miserably in protecting human beings who live in PEI.
