Editor's Notes

Harper playing the Islamaphobia card in politics of fear

as he betrays Canadian democracy in the name of security

Trudeau takes the bait while Mulcair again shows maturity
Stephen Harper has long expressed his contempt for Canada's system of government. More than once he has told American businessmen he would prefer the American Way. For more than this reason he has been an excited Washington attack dog.
Our man who would be president was more than eager to please Washington in Hilary Clinton's falsely justified attack on Libya. Now we have Canadian armed forces doing America's bidding in Iraq while Harper plans to use his seat majority in parliament to seriously expand our military involvement there.
Although there still has been no proof, both Harper and Canadian Me-Too Justin Trudeau have leaped to the conclusion that Michaael Zehaf-Bibeau, who was gun downed October 22 2014 in Parliament Hill's Centre Block after killing Corporal Nathan Crillo as he stood guard at the nearby National War Memorial, was a terrorist. The same was thought of Martin Couture-Rouleau who ran over and killed Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent two days earlier.
Mulcair says that there's not enough proof to determine if the two gunmen were really dyed-in-the wool terrorists — or just troubled men.
Yet Harper would force through Bill C-51, the Anti-Terrorism Act, which the Conservative party tabled January 30. But as Mulcair says, there isn't a single element of this law that isn't already caught up by existing legislation.
The fact is that the CSIS have been practicing that which has been contrary to the letter and spirit of Canada's constitution. Bill C-51 would make legal the letter of the law while denying the spirit of Canadian democracy.
For the sake of this and future generations of our country, Harper must be stopped.
