I'll vote conservative, just because of no. 43
NDP will bring back the gun registry and infringe on the civil rights of law abiding gun owners.While the conservative record is not admirable it would be much worse under the NDP.
Voting for a party, simply because of their policy on gun control, and ignoring all the other factor involved in the big picture, demonstrates the level of intelligence in the electorate that Harper is counting on. For me, the "civil rights" of gun owners means nothing, nothing. I'm more concerned with protecting people in universities, movie theatres, schools, and simply living their daily lives from the insanity of shootings and murder that we're seeing in the USA, where "civil rights" of gun owners are sickeningly placed above the safety of common people. Go ahead, vote Harper, and when it's YOUR family member that gets gunned down by some psycho, remember the day you voted........ and by the way, where did you find out that the NDP plans to bring back the gun registry? First I've heard of it. Probably more lies being spread by Harper's political machine, trying to scare voters away from the polls, same as this nonsense about "terrorists" behind every bush and under every rock. I'm still laughing about that coward hiding in the broom closet, behind the women. This is supposed to be a "leader"? STOP HARPER
joan brydenthe canadian pressLast updated Wednesday, Dec. 03, 2014 4:55PM ESTA New Democrat government would ensure police are able to track every firearm in Canada, but would also seek to avoid the pitfalls that made the now-defunct long-gun registry so controversial, Tom Mulcair said Wednesday.The NDP leader disputed the Conservative government’s contention that gun registration is an unfair, onerous requirement for law-abiding gun owners.
Thank You 1:42 PM, for pointing out that an NDP government would seek to control firearms, not that they intend to re-establish the gun registry. This is how the Harper Conservatives operate--- Take a statement, twist it around to say something that it doesn't, and then claim it to be a "true fact", in order to promote their own agenda and attempt to discredit their opposition. In short, the Conservatives are liars.
THUNDER BAY -- Even though both Thunder Bay MPs were punished for breaking rank with the NDP over abolishing the long gun registry back in 2011, Tom Mulcair says he won't re-introduce the registry if the NDP forms the next government. The NDP Leader made the comment to reporters in Thunder Bay on Sunday after speaking at a rally of around 300 people."We will not be bringing in a long gun registry. It was a failure," Mulcair said."We will make sure the police have the tools to do their job safely but there's no question for the NDP to bring in a long gun registry." There are few ridings in Canada where the NDP's position on gun registration has had more of an impact than those in Thunder Bay. In November 2011, then-interim-Leader Nycole Turmel whipped NDP MPs to vote against a Conservative bill to scrap the long gun registry.That spring's election had brought the NDP enormous gains in Quebec. For urban voters there, the registry was perceived as a legacy response to the 1989 Montreal Massacre, in which a man shot and killed 14 female students and injured 15 others at Ecole Polytechnique.Detractors argued the program cost taxpayers over $2 billion and many rural residents across Canada had opposed it since it was introduced in 1995. Both Thunder Bay-Superior North MP Bruce Hyer and Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP John Rafferty argued their consitutents strongly wanted them to vote with the Conservatives to abolish the registry. Rafferty claimed 96 per cent of people he surveyed wanted it scrapped.When the NDP whipped the vote, Hyer and Rafferty disobeyed their party on all three of the bill's readings.In response, the NDP removed both MPs from committees and they were not allowed to ask questions during Question Period for five months. Mulcair was elected to lead the NDP on March 24, 2012. Hyer was left out of Mulcair's shadow cabinet and left the NDP to sit as an independent within the month, claiming the new leader told him to vote with the party on all issues. Two months before Hyer joined the Green Party in December of 2013, he introduced a Private Member's Bill that would oblige anyone selling or transferring a firearm to ensure the recipient had a valid possession and acquisition license. It was read only once.
I heard Harper on TV today....... pointing out that the solution to first nations issues is harsher penalties in criminal matters. Shameful, but it shows all too clearly how he views aboriginal people. Hey Harper, getting you re-elected isn't really high on our radar!
It should be noted that the Harper Conservatives, including the racists Harper, Kenny, local canditate John Duncan, and the entire Conservative caucus have made it clear that the deaths of over 1,100 first nations women are an issue of no great importance to them. As Harper said, "it's not really high on our radar", while displaying a snide grin. Conservative.... the "good ole boys white party"..... (with a few "token" minorities thrown in to make it look good, like our joke of an Environment minister). STOP HARPER!
All the good paying jobs are gone. Common people are further in debt than they've ever been. Records have been set in the amount of the national debt. All future planning was tied to oil revenues, which as we know, have crashed and aren't coming back anytime soon. We're involved in a money sucking foreign war, with no exit strategy. Temporary foreign workers are being shipped into the country to fill jobs that resident Canadians want and need. The gap between the rich 1% and the rest of the people is constantly widening. Unemployment ststistics are so clouded, abstracted, twisted and outright lied about, that no one really realizes what sad shape the country is in. University graduates cannot find jobs, not only high tech good paying jobs, but ANY job. Infrastructure is crumbling, eroding, wearing out, and is not being replaced or maintained........ No jobs, no money, huge debt, no future, no hope,... and Harper thinks we should re-elect him on his economic record. You gotta be kidding. STOP HARPER!
Jobs filled by TFWs are counted by StatsCan as jobs created....
Back in 2012, under pressure from big oil lobbyists, the Harper Government changed the National Energy Board Act to limit community consultation and democratic input into the hearings on fossil fuel projects -- such as the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline. They changed the rules so that no one is even allowed to mention climate change! The move allows them to recklessly fast-track dangerous projects and ignore community concerns.
