Unfortunately when their leader doesn't even get an invite to a national television debate, their cause is lost. Too bad, cause they make good points

6) Who: Quebec MP (and former Minister for Foreign Affairs) Maxime Bernier
What: In 2008, left highly confidential and sensitive NATO briefing notes at the apartment of then-girlfriend Julie Couillard, who was later discovered to have had ties to such unsavoury criminal organizations as the Hell's Angels.
Result: SO. TOTALLY. FIRED! At least from his cabinet position. But he's still an MP.
Lessons learned: For Harper: don't trust NATO secrets with a self-absorbed jackass who does his best thinking with his ''Little Minister.'' For Bernier: put your head down and behave for a bit, and you can actually keep your job, even though you don't deserve it. Yay! (credit: Canadian Press)

Image

7) Who: Former Cabinet Minister Helena Guergis
What: In the interest of fairness to the scandal-plagued, disgraced Guergis, it must be noted that in some cases, the exact details of her disgrace are still under investigation. But over a period of 24 months or so, she and/or her husband Rahim Jaffer were surrounded by a never-ending torrent of rumours of corruption, cocaine binges, three-way sex with prostitutes, alleged financial irregularities and a well-publicized hissy fit at the Charlottetown airport. Today, they might be known as Team Sheen.
Result: Fired, then thrown under the bus by Harper and his crew.
Lessons learned: Presumably, Harper was forced to upbraid his entire party with one of his infamous tactical directive memos. It probably read something like this: ''Hey guys! Seriously, no more blow, whores, and graft! This goes especially for cabinet ministers I appointed to multiple positions. Just good honest government for a bit, k? Tanx!'' (credit: Canadian Press)

Image

8) Who: Former Minister of International Cooperation Bev Oda
What: When an official document recommended the renewal of government funding for Kairos, a left-leaning international aid organization, Oda attempted to overturn it by simply adding the word ''not'' to the document, effectively inverting the meaning of the recommendation. Also known in non-governmental circles as ''lying.'' She also claimed, initially, not to have done it at all - another whopper.
Results: The Government seems to be riding this one out, despite a symphonic swell of calls for her resignation, including one from National Post columnist Lorne Gunter - although most of his blistering column is about how much less corrupt the Harper government is than, well, let's say, any Liberal government ever.
Lessons learned: Good soldiers go far. Oda's scandal has helped deflect from concurrent Conservative, scandals, especially its stonewalling of parties seeking detailed budget breakdowns. Both issues, ultimately, placed the Conservatives in contempt of Parliament. (credit: Canadian Press)

Image

9) Who: Harper Chief of Staff Nigel Wright
What: According to 2008 documents related to the so-called ''in-and-out scandal,'' Wright was the secretary of the Conservative Fund of Canada at the time of the alleged improprieties in the distribution of campaign funds for Conservative campaign advertising - the ''In and Out'' scandal (which, by the way, despite the name, appears to have absolutely nothing to do with Maxime Bernier and/or Helena Guergis).
Results: Developing. In typical fashion, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff is calling for Wright's resignation, despite the nagging fact that Wright has yet to be implicated. Or, as Harper put it in a typically scintillating, heartfelt speech: ''the individual in question has not been charged with anything yet.''
Lessons learned: We'll see what happens, but one thing we know already is that being Harper's chief of staff is probably not all that much fun (credit: Canadian Press)

Image

10) Who: Stephen Harper
What: After cutting $45 million in arts and culture funding back in 2008, Mr. Harper casually suggested that ''ordinary people'' don't care about arts funding. A Facebook group claiming the contrary was quickly started and went viral, gathering nearly 60,000 fans.
Results: Harper softened his stance a bit, then performed ''A Little Help From My Friends'' at just the sort of gala he had derided earlier. Not a scandal, exactly, but a great example of Harper's enduring love for the double-standard.
Lessons learned: Harper is not an ''ordinary'' Canadian, and we're supposed to do what he says, not what he does. Any questions? Direct them to The Canadian, er, the ''Harper Government.'' (credit: Canadian Press)

Then there is the Russell Williams Scandal which the Canadian Military,The RCMP and The "Harper" Government Protected and helped to conceal the murders,rapes and other crimes going on at bases he worked at.As one witness was asked if they investigated his neighbor(Russell Williams) he said "he was considered "Elite" and therefore was beyond investigation and suspicion for the crimes"

Some background info on The "Elite" Member of Canadian Forces Russell Williams.
Source;http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russell_Williams

David Russell Williams[2] (born March 7, 1963) is a convicted murderer, rapist, and former Colonel in the Canadian Forces. From July 2009 to his arrest in February 2010, he commanded Canadian Forces Base Trenton, a hub for air transport operations in Canada and abroad and the country's largest and busiest airbase. Williams was also a decorated military pilot who had flown Canadian Forces VIP aircraft for Canadian dignitaries such as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the governor general, the prime minister, and others.[3]

On February 8, 2010, he was relieved as the base commander at CFB Trenton due to criminal charges. He was formally charged by the Crown Attorney pursuant to provisions set forth in the Criminal Code of Canada on evidence collected by the Ontario Provincial Police with two counts of first-degree murder along with two counts of forcible confinement and two counts of breaking and entering and sexual assault;[4] another 82 charges relating to breaking and entry were subsequently added.[5] On October 21, 2010, Williams was sentenced to two life sentences for first-degree murder, two 10-year sentences for other sexual assaults, two 10-year sentences for forcible confinement and 82 one-year sentences for burglary; all the sentences will be served concurrently at Kingston Penitentiary. The life sentences mean Williams will serve a minimum of 25 years before parole eligibility. Since he has been convicted of multiple murders, Williams is not eligible for early parole under the so-called "faint hope clause" of the Canadian Criminal Code.[6]

On October 22, 2010, Williams was stripped of his commission, ranks, and awards by the Governor General of Canada on the recommendation of the Chief of the Defence Staff. His severance pay was terminated and the salary he received following his arrest was seized, although he is still entitled to a pension.

Military service

Williams was regarded as a model military man over the course of his 23-year career.[10][21] He enrolled in the Canadian Forces in 1987 after graduating from the University of Toronto with an economics and political science degree. He received his flying wings in 1990, and was posted to 3 Canadian Forces Flying Training School, based at CFB Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, where he served for two years as an instructor.

Promoted to captain on January 1, 1991,[22] Williams was posted to 434 Combat Support Squadron at CFB Shearwater, N.S. in 1992, where he flew the CC-144 Challenger in the electronic warfare and coastal patrol role. In 1994, he was posted to the 412 Transport Squadron in Ottawa, where he transported VIPs, including high-ranking government officials and foreign dignitaries, also on Challengers.

Williams was promoted to major in November 1999 and was posted to Director General Military Careers, in Ottawa, where he served as the multi-engine pilot career manager.[22]

He obtained a Master of Defence Studies from the Royal Military College of Canada in 2004 with a 55-page thesis that supported pre-emptive war in Iraq, and in June 2004, he was promoted to lieutenant-colonel and on July 19, 2004 he was appointed commanding officer of 437 Transport Squadron at CFB Trenton, Ont., a post he held for two years.[10][21][22][23][24][25]

From December 2005 to May 2006, Williams also served as the commanding officer of Camp Mirage, a secretive logistics facility believed to be located at Al Minhad Air Base in Dubai, United Arab Emirates that provides support to Canadian Forces operations in Afghanistan.[10][21][22][26]

He was posted to the Directorate of Air Requirements on July 21, 2006 where he served as project director for the Airlift Capability Projects Strategic (C-17 Globemaster III) and Tactical (CC-130J Hercules J), and Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue, working under Lieutenant General Angus Watt at this posting.[22][27]

In January 2009 he was posted to the Canadian Forces Language School in Gatineau, Quebec, for a six-month period of French language training, during which he was promoted to colonel by recommendation of now retired Lieutenant-General Angus Watt.[28]

On July 15, 2009, Williams was sworn in as the Wing Commander at Canadian Forces Base Trenton by the outgoing Wing Commander Brigadier General Mike Hood.[29] Canadian Forces Base Trenton is Canada's busiest air base and locus of support for overseas military operations. Located in Trenton, Ontario, the base also functions as the point of arrival for the bodies of all Canadian Forces personnel killed in Afghanistan, and the starting point for funeral processions along the "Highway of Heroes" whence their bodies are brought to Toronto for autopsy.[21][22][30][31][32][33]

Williams has been described as an elite pilot and "shining bright star" of the military. He had flown Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Governor General of Canada, the Prime Minister of Canada, and many other dignitaries across Canada and overseas in Canadian Forces VIP aircraft.[10][21][24]
[edit] Investigation and arrest

Jessica Lloyd, 27, had vanished on January 28, 2010. Investigators identified distinctive tire tracks left in snow near her home. One week after her disappearance, the Ontario Provincial Police conducted an extensive canvassing of all motorists using the highway near her home from 7 pm on February 4, 2010, to 6 am on the following day, looking for the unusual tire treads. Williams was driving his Pathfinder that day — rather than the BMW he usually drove — and an officer noticed the resemblance of his tire treads. These were subsequently matched to the treads near Lloyd's home.[13][21]

On February 7, 2010, the CFB Trenton base commander was at his newly built home in Ottawa, where his wife lived full-time and he lived part-time, when he was called by the OPP in Ottawa and asked to come in for questioning. During the 10-hour interview he confessed to the numerous crimes of which he was later convicted. Early the next morning Williams led investigators to the woman's body in a secluded area on Cary Road, about 13 minutes away from where he lived. Williams was also charged in the death of Corporal Marie-France Comeau, a 37-year-old military flight attendant based at CFB Trenton, who had been found dead inside her home in late November 2009.[12][21][34][35]

Along with the murder charges, Williams was charged with breaking and entering, forcible confinement, and the sexual assault of two other women in connection with two separate home invasions near Tweed, Ontario in September 2009. According to reports, the women had been bound in their homes and the attacker had taken photos of them.[21][34][36]

Williams was arraigned and remanded into custody on Monday, February 8, 2010. The Canadian Forces announced that day that an interim commander would soon be appointed to replace him (Dave Cochrane took over 11 days later), and removed his biography from the Department of National Defence website the following day.[23][26]

Hours after the announcement of Williams' arrest, police services across the country reopened unsolved homicide cases involving young women in areas where Williams, a career military man, had previously been stationed. According to news reports, police began looking at other unsolved cases based on a full statement that Williams gave to police.[23][34][35]

A week after his arrest, investigators reported that, along with hidden keepsakes and other evidence they had found in his home, they had matched a print from one of the homicide scenes to his boot.[37]

In addition to the four primary incidents, the investigation into Williams includes probes into 48 cases of theft of women's underwear dating back to 2006. In the searches of his Ottawa home, police discovered stolen lingerie that was neatly stored, catalogued, and concealed.[38]

In April 2010, Williams was placed on suicide watch after he tried to kill himself by wedging a stuffed cardboard toilet paper roll down his throat.[39]
[edit] Confession

On February 7, 2010, Williams was interrogated at Ottawa Police Service headquarters by Detective Sergeant Jim Smyth, a member of the Ontario Provincial Police's Behavioural Sciences Unit. The interview started at 3 p.m. and by 7:45 p.m. he was describing his crimes. The interrogation lasted approximately ten hours. Excerpts of the confession were shown in court at Williams' sentencing hearing on October 20, 2010.

In the confession, Williams gave details of his crimes, including the sexual assaults in Tweed and 82 break-ins and thefts. Some of them occurred in Ottawa homes within walking distance of his Orleans, Ontario home where he lived with his wife. Other break-ins and thefts occurred in Belleville, and in Tweed, where the couple had a cottage since 2004.

He also told police where they could find evidence, including hidden keepsakes, inside the Ottawa home. The couple had moved to a new house two months before he was interrogated by police.[40][41][42][43] He told Detective Sergeant Jim Smyth where police could find the thousands of images he took of Lloyd and Comeau and the two women he sexually assaulted. He then identified on a map where he dumped Lloyd’s body. A video of the interrogation was made available to the public and was posted online by several newspapers and on YouTube.
[edit] Court proceedings and trial

Williams appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice in Belleville, Ontario via video link from the Quinte Detention Centre on July 22, 2010, where his next court appearance was set for August 26.[44] Again via video link, Williams waived his right to a preliminary inquiry and thus had his next appearance scheduled at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice for October 7, 2010.[45] Williams' lawyer stated then that his client would plead guilty to all 82 Criminal Code charges filed against him.[46]

On October 18, 2010 Williams pleaded guilty to all charges.[47] On the first day of Williams' trial and guilty plea, details emerged of other sexual assaults he committed, including that of a new mother who was wakened with a blow to the head while she and her baby were asleep in her house.[48] The first day of trial revealed that Williams also had pedophiliac tendencies, stealing underwear of girls as young as nine years old. He made 82 fetish-related home invasions and attempted break-ins between September 2007 and November 2009.[49]

Williams progressed from break-ins to sexual assaults with no penetration to rape and murder. He kept detailed track of police reports of the crimes he was committing, logged his crimes, kept photos and videos and even left notes and messages for his victims.[50] In a break-in into the bedroom of a 12-year-old, he left a message in her computer saying: "Merci" ("Thank you" in French). He took thousands of pictures of his crimes and kept the photos on his computer. Crown Attorney Robert Morrison presented numerous pictures of Williams dressed in the very underwear and bras he had stolen, frequently masturbating while lying on the beds of his victims.[49]

Some of the photos presented on the first day of his trial were published in several newspapers. As some newspapers explained, although troubling, the photos were published because they capture the essence of the crimes of Williams and show the true nature of his crimes. Among the news media that published some of the released photographs were The Montreal Gazette and The Toronto Star.[51][52]

Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert F. Scott sentenced Williams on October 22, 2010, to two concurrent terms of life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.[53]

In what is believed to be a first, Williams' uniform was destroyed through burning by the Canadian Forces, as his name had been stitched into the fabric.[54] His SUV and medals will likewise be destroyed.

This is what Canadian Government Considers "Elite"
This is What The Harper Government Considers "Elite"

:hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell: :hell:


As far as Harper goes, I agree that the Government should not fund the Arts. The only way they should be involved in the Arts is to make sure children are exposed to it as part of their general education.

But whatever, he is a conservative so drag him to the guillotine. :clapper:

Bullshit. They (Conservatives) want you to think that so you will not bother voting. They want to control the process. If people did their civic duty things could change big time. Or civilization is not too big to fail. It is very fragile actually. If need be we must be prepared to burn it down. In America, they are notorious for limiting the access to voting.

You have to get involved, at the local, state and federal levels and keep track of who the crooks are. Society has to make a conscious effort to make more than 2 terms in any office as undesirable. The politicians will not police themselves until a new Governing Order is created.

Power to the people if they are involved, if not we will be slaves.

I believe this truth applies everywhere conservatism has a strong presence.

Conservatism = People who want to keep the status quo. Anyone who wants that to happen in this day and age is probably a White Collar criminal or just a retarded hick.

Quite the Conservative Party scandal list unitb166er. I heard this videos on the local university radio station today.
"Stephen Harper: HEY CANADA "Its a Loss of Sovereignty"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvhEjt9IQec

And just a couple of minutes later they played this catchy tune, "Steve It's Time to Leave"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLfbp-HEylU

You can see who has the best chance to beat out the conservative in your riding at the Project Democracy web site.
