A New Movement Rising in Canada
There's a new movement rising in Canada. Thomas Mulcair saw it but Justin Trudeau didn't and Stephen Harper never grasped it. It represents a reawakening of the Age of Reason that Preston Manning launched before he and Harper dropped the ball and reunited with Mulroneyism. Chuck Cadman was Reform until he was screwed over by Harper. After that he was an independent.
In response to the crime, corruption and greed of the Mulroney government, Preston Manning created the Reform Party and launched a Ron Paul Revolution in Canada that revolted against pork barrel politics demanding fiscal responsibility and balanced budgets. These ideals swept Western Canada but died in Ontario who saw it as a separatist movement because they couldn't see the forest through the trees.
Realizing they couldn't make the changes they wanted unless they formed government, they merged with the very criminals they originally set out to correct just so they could take office. When they did take office the original ideals of the Reform Party went out the window. Fiscal responsibility was lost and was once again replaced with insider trading, pork barrel tax and spend politics then launched an attack on civl liberty and the Charter of Rights.
The Reform party pledged to hold referendums to survey public opinion. Stephen Harper did the exact opposite. He spent massive amounts of tax dollars on advertising to mold public opinion.
Nevertheless, people still want fiscal responsibility. People still want politicians to stop wasting money and lower taxes. The Neo Cons claim the left will tax and spend but they are the worse offenders. Brian Mulroney's tax and spend pork barrel politics was evidence of that. The left spends money on housing and the elderly. The Neo Cons spend it on themselves and their campaign contributors. The Light Rail disaster in Surrey is a prime example.
No one who lives in Guildford wants an on ground railway along 104th Avenue between Surrey Place and Guildford Mall. No one. Right now it's a problem free five minute bus ride. A LRT will create an infrastructure nightmare. Reverting 104th to a single lane of traffic in each direction is completely insane. 108th backs up in the late afternoons because it is two lanes with no left hand turning lanes. If someone wants to make a left turn, traffic becomes congested.
Making a left turn on 104th after a LRT is in place is exponentially worse. Not only do you have to wait for a break in oncoming traffic, you also have to look in your rear view mirror to see if a train is coming. It is structurally unsafe. People who drive cars prefer sky train because sky train does not impede traffic. People who drive cars should have a say because they pay Translink a billion dollars a year in a regional gas tax above and beyond federal and provincial gas tax. No private company would be allowed to continue and expand running a billion dollar deficit every year.
Who got the contract for the Evergreen Sky train line? SNC-Lavalin. That was a criminal act. Who makes LRT and makes campaign contributions to the federal Liberals and Conservatives? SNC-Lavalin. Do the math. The new movement that is rising in Canada opposes this kind of political corruption and demands politicians stop wasting tax dollars and start becoming fiscally responsible. Giving billions of tax dollars to dirty construction companies that under bid and over charge contracts while giving a kickback to the politicians in the form of campaign contributions has to end. No lie can live forever. Tunnel fear mongering is false.
It's pretty sad when the NDP support small business more than the Neo Cons do. The Neo Cons claim they support small business and a free market but they do not. They support corporate monopolies that destroy the free market and consumer taxes that kill small business. Welcome to the New world Order where the Left is Right and the Right is Left leaving behind the principles they claim to uphold. Corporate Communism is bad. Civil Liberty is good.
