Editor, The Times:
A vote for the Harper Conservatives is a ringing endorsement for: poor business practice – $30 billion for jet fighters on a no bid contract, secrecy and an utter contempt for parliament (so much for open government), corporate tax pandering while using our money for things like the HST provincially, a circle the wagons approach to any and all wrong doing by their members and ministers, environmental policy set by the oil industry, foreign policy gaffs that have left Canada’s reputation in tatters, and all this questionable behavior as a minority government. It doesn’t take much imagination to see the march to corporate Canada accelerate under a Harper majority.
Bye, bye public, hello private in healthcare, education and broadcasting. Those of you who support this trend had best be careful what you ask for!
The relatively healthy economy which Harper claims credit for is really the result of CCF and NDP reform policies enacted by previous Liberal and Conservative governments who had the good sense to recognize good policy when they saw it. Harper’s philosophy, had it been in place, would have landed us in a deeper recession that the U.S.A. finds it self today.
Get out and vote on May 2 and consider voting for the only option that has any chance of improving your own situation and that of Canada
