Who's Driving This Bus?!

If unelected Liberal hacks are making the decisions that count in Dalton McGuinty's Ontario, instead of duly elected politicians, then how- I ask you- how can the Liberals trouble themselves about Harper's controlling ways?

From the article:

The plant was killed Sept. 24 in a Saturday news event deliberately kept from political journalists covering the election campaign.

That’s because the Liberal campaign hoped for less critical local media attention so close to the Oct. 6 election. Not even Liberal press aides on McGuinty’s campaign tour were advised of the move in advance.

They hoped for less critical local media attention. Now that's interesting. Why would the Liberals EXPECT less critical local media attention? The media would never be partial to Liberals, would they?


  1. I hope you are just as offended by unelected shills lieing and formulating foreign policy releases on the public dime.

    "The memo, dated Jan 20, 2011, was prepared in advance of a conference call to be held the following day of a joint committee of oil and gas industry lobbyists and senior officials from the federal and Alberta governments. The committee has been co-ordinating communications and outreach material, drafted in part by the oil and gas industry, to lobby foreign governments on climate change policies that target the oilsands, previously-released records obtained by Postmedia News have revealed."

    And the dissemination of this (dis)information using more public money and DFAIT channels.

  2. You know, there's a reason I pointed out the media's complicity in this case. You'll read lots of stuff in your local paper about bad behaviour from people affiliated with Harper's government. If people remember this power plant debacle a week from now, I'll be amazed.

    We can play "there ain't no flies on us" all day, you and I, but it's beside the point. The point is that when Harper does something, people lament for the future of our country, but when McGuinty does something, it's, "Oh well, it's not as bad as Mike Harris."
