  1. so is that whats going to happen to canada if steven harper wins? Or is this comment off topic?
    quotes from thier site.
    • A balance between fiscal accountability, progressive social policy and individual rights and responsibilities;

    • A belief in the equality of all Canadians;

    • A belief in the freedom of the individual, including freedom of speech, worship and assembly;

    • A belief that all Canadians should have reasonable access to quality health care regardless of their ability to pay;

    wouldn’t those points taken from http://www.conservative.ca/EN/1141/ go against their views on gay marrage and inmate voting? Just a thought

  2. heh that assumes the conservatives see these people, inmates, gaysetc. as actual real people who deserve these things…sure if you can get in the right wing’s good graces then you are a ‘real person’ and deserving of rights, but it’s that first step, that part where they need to see you and your life as valid and human and deserving respect…that’s the catch…most of us don’t meet their requirements and are therefore not desirable Canadians and not real people.

  3. Their platform is the most fiscally irresponsible of all major parties. Their social policy is the literal definition of regressive. “Individual rights” is shorthand for “property rights”.

    “A belief in the equality of all Canadians” is laughable, given their stance on gay and prisoner rights, as leslie pointed out.

    “A belief in the freedom of the individual, including freedom of speech, worship and assembly” is pretty silly, considering this are all Charter rights, and the Conservative party is against the Liberal plan to ensure that provinces can’t sidestep the charter.

    “A belief that all Canadians should have reasonable access to quality health care regardless of their ability to pay” is a huge fucking step down from “all Canadians should have equal access to quality health care regardless of their ability to pay”.

    It’s all spin.

  4. Hmmm… I had never looked closely enough to notice the change of one word: equal to reasonable. Yep, that about sums it up.
