Flora MacDonald Speaks Up

In Canadian politics on January 28, 2010 at 2:55 pm

This is just the kind of thing I have been waiting for; one of the older , more respected members of the Progressive Conservatives to come forward and give their 2 cents.

In an interview with CTV last night, Flora was really good. Oh so carefully, she separated herself from the Harper Conservatives by reminding us that she was in the Progressive Conservative party. Go Flora!

Very politely, she mentioned that Harper’s government told her recently, that they are simply not interested in the plight of women and children in the world. Hmmm, that’s odd. I’m sure that I heard Stephen Harper say that women and children are his main focus at the G8 in Davos, Switzerland. Am I missing something?

What does she think about the prorogation? Well, she’s dead set against it. Go figure.

It was bound to happen. The hostile takeover of the Progressive Conservative party by the Reform Alliance a few years ago, caused many prominent PCs to just walk away. They did it so quietly; but you know what they say, revenge is a dish best served cold.

The most recent prorogation of parliament, is viewed by many to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The public outcry sure seems to have made him desperate to get back in the good books. For the last 2 weeks, he has tried to keep the earthquake in Haiti on the front pages and paint himself as a champion of the weak.

Harper has managed to keep the Canadian press (among others) on a tight leash until now, but the backlash is in full swing. Too bad for him that the internet doesn’t have an eraser.

With Harper out of the country, it’s the perfect time for victims of his to join forces and give him a dose of his own medicine.

Tune in next week for the exciting conclusion to the Harper government.

Same bat-time, same bat-channel.

  1. I can’t help it I have two cents and they are just burning a hole in my pockets.
    What you missed in Harpers quote was exactly what he said.
    women and children are his main focus at the G8 in Davos, Switzerland.
    It’s that reading between the lines stuff. You are assuming that he and the rest of the assholes are meaning to do good because they grouped a series of words together in a pretty package with key words, meant to pop out and give you a warm fussy feeling. I will repeat myself. Don’t look at the left and the right hand, the deseption is right in front of you.

    If you read the lines as he stated them, you will see your answer to your question.
    Now I’ll go find the quotes myself because I do not know them off hand.
    The word shyster is reserved for lawyers and politicians for a reason. They use unscrupulous and unethical methods.
    The unethical method is the use of language. Do you ever wonder why legalize seems like such bullshit. It is because it is not, they state specifically what they intend.

  2. I know the sound of the long knives when I hear it ! Be afraid Cheap weave from Hell,be very afraid!

  3. I love and respect her

  4. I searched CTV to find that interview with Flora MacDonald, but couldn’t find it… just real old stuff on her. Could you provide a link? I’d love to share that CTV link on my facebook page. Thanks.

  5. Some genuinely wonderful work on behalf of the owner of this site, absolutely great written content šŸ˜€
