"For decades, the U.S. economy was powered by a free spending middle class that had plenty of discretionary income to throw around.  But now that the middle class is being systematically destroyed, that paradigm is changing.  Americans families simply do not have the same resources that they once did, and that spells big trouble for retailers."

Solar and wind projects on the ground and in the Texas pipelines are generating big numbers in both gigawatts (GW) and revenue.

'“In Bill C-38, Stephen Harper cancelled and gutted environmental laws brought in by Brian Mulroney.  He’s now moved on to destroy environmental law brought in by Sir John A. MacDonald.”

And who gave the Conservatives the blueprint for gutting the Navigable Waters Protection Act?  The pipeline industry.  The new legislation gave them a big plum: Along with power lines, pipelines were removed from the legislation altogether.'

“He has transformed Environment Canada into just another oilpatch stooge, violating the purpose for which it was created.”


'The real man repeatedly has tried to turn the Internet into a servant of the police state, disguising his intent with nonsense about child pornographers and “protection”.

The real man has starved the opposition of even the most basic information about the budget and deprived Parliament of the ability to debate legislation through the cynical use of enormous omnibus bills.

Sheila Fraser has named the disease. Laws are being passed in Stephen Harper’s Canada without scrutiny. (That didn’t seem to bother the dear host of CBC’s The Current when she interviewed on my new book. But it bothers me, and a lot of other people, a great deal.)
The real man doesn’t speak to his fellow premiers as a group, banishes journalists from public buildings and thinks Sun News is where it’s at.'

“It didn’t take a genius to work out that Harper’s reaction to the robocall scandal would be new legislation that will make it harder to catch cheaters the next time. And trust me, there will be a next time. So let it be said clearly: Stephen Harper is a champion of screwing free speech and democracy at every opportunity.”


“Canadians don’t want to see medicare slowly reduced to a ghost of its former self by a prime minister who once headed an organization created to destroy it.”

“Finally, Canadians don’t want to save money on the backs of veterans who didn’t take to the closet in the face of clear and present danger — especially when Harper has so egregiously used the military for political gain. There has to be more for our soldiers than bullets and beans.”
In politics, as in baseball, the rule is simple: Three strikes and you're out. When Stephen Harper finally shambles towards the showers, head down, bat in hand, I'll be thinking of Mighty Casey. For much of his career, Harper has umpired his own at-bats. But that role will soon — if briefly — fall to the people of Canada. Election Day is coming to Mudville. Strike one against this government of oligarchs and corporate shills comes down to t...

The pharmaceutical companies make their money from people needing regular medication and not by developing cures.  We "cannot" even find a cure for the common cold but we are exploring space, visiting other planets and landing satellites on comets. Makes you question the real agenda of the parmisuetical industry.

"Additionally, we must demand that the U.S. Forest Service take immediate action to stop this multinational company from stealing our water. A similar action happened in Ontario, Canada, when residents demanded that the company be stopped from taking their water during times of drought – but I say Nestlé should be stopped completely."
Nestlé’s illegal corporate coup threatens U.S. water supply.

privatization is only good for making private profits.
Contracting out winter road maintenance has led to longer clearing times and less anti-icing liquid, sand and salt on roads, Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk has found.
