Fat Steve, forget the frigging senate, how about reforming the house of commons to actually represent the people. Sure you'll likely be out of 24 Sussex but then fuck you anyway, you duplicitous, fundie Reform hack. And you Iggy, you onanistic, patrician douche nozzle, well fuck you too. You dumb pricks want to call elections whenever you think you might see a glimmer of power and prestige available, well we the people, we want good government, regardless of who is in charge. Proportional representation now! Please.
I'm hereby casting a vote of non-confidence in our government. Not just the Cons, the whole wretched lot of 'em. I'm tired of the empty platitudes of elected fibbers pretending to the nation's best interest whilst busily licking the hinds of the pollution industrial complex, profiteers and lobbyists. I'm sick of liars in suits maneuvering for their own gain against the common interests of the voters. Stop pretending it is in our interest to sell off public assets, Canadian industries and resource control to offshore conglomerates. Stop whittling away our rights and freedoms, stop handing over our information and security to the insane bastards that live next door.
I demand concrete plans to curb pollution, greenhouse and otherwise. I demand that we stop pouring money and energy into the toxic nightmare of the tar sands until such time as a program to mitigate the colossal damage can be proven effective. I demand research and development funds be redirected into the alternative energy sector, with special attention to geothermal technologies. I demand that Canadian airwaves and bandwidth remain Canadian, no matter how large the promised kickbacks and future considerations might be. I further demand that our privacy be protected from both government and industry, our email and web usage should be every bit as secure as our snail mail and telephone conversations. Net neutrality now and always.
In the instance of little things like the Nortel sale, should a minister or member of this government find him or herself rejoining the private sector, they should be permanently barred from employment with, consultation for or positions on the board of such companies as purchase large Canadian interests while they were in office. Post facto graft is not acceptable. And where ever possible, Canadian firms and entrepreneurs should have preference of purchase in any and all dealings that have the potential to affect areas vital to the public and to national sovereignty and security. Why yes, that is protectionism. If we can't rely on our elected representatives to protect our interests and assets, well what fucking good are they?
