Could you not have waited until after the recession to bring in the HST?
I am on my 3rd job in one year due to the downturn with each lay-off lasting a month or more. My savings are gone. My transit pass is going to cost me 30+ dollars extra each month starting in January. Groceries are skyrocketing. I make exactly the same as I did last year except ends are not meeting. I've canceled cable, and my home phone and still ends don't meet. I have to live in a building with crack heads living in the stairwells and ends don't meet.
Ontario is becoming way too expensive and your bribe money discriminates against singles. I come from a province which has HST but we lobbed off 4% when we harmonized. You never. I am supportive of the HST but you have fucking shitty timing dude.

Conservatives while talking about the money involved in the gun registry have taken to the talking points imagine the social housing and how many single moms we could have helped.
Of course, Conservatives don't believe in social housing and when it comes to Conservatives, especially with Mr Baird, there is no track record with helping any single moms on welfare. Leaving to die maybe.
Conservatives make me sick. For a bunch wrapped up with Evangelicals, they sure lie, cheat, distort and completely lack any morals. Recommend this Post

Rural over-representation defeats the people's will.
20% of the country has more pull than the other 80%.
Its about time that we have a government that represents the people of this country instead of its vast landscape, no matter how beautiful it may be. We end up with a government just as barren as the prairies when it comes to ideas, morals and ability to lead a country.
The 20% that seems to have more power tend to have so few issues they elect members for one thing only. Things such as a gun registry. Is this how we want to run our country? With single issue government? That's all the reform-conservatives are. Its always been about guns and suspected crime in face of stats proving otherwise. Everything else they have promised they have taken half measures or completely neutered it to the point its useless, like the accountability act. We get mandatory election dates that are actually unenforceable. We also get 3 environmental plans yet none get implemented.

One week argue that everyone who has a bicycle should be required to licence it. And then later that everyone with a gun or guns shouldn't have to license them.
There you have it. The bizarre world of conservatism where a bike is a dangerous thing that should be licensed but guns should be freely available and don't you dare ask who has one.
No need to be confused. They never make sense. They are reactionary and have a mean streak. Its not about principle its about being an atrocious human being. You see having a bicycle makes you a tax loving green socialist liberal and thats just wrong but stock piling guns, rifles and automatic machine guns makes you a pillar of the conservative community.
I wonder how much money criminals and criminal organizatons are donating to the conservative cause right now??

Brad Trost on Toronto Gay Pride funding:
"Canadian taxpayers, even non-social conservative ones, don't want their tax dollars to go to events that are polarizing or events that are more political than touristic in nature."
So no funding for events that are more political than touristic. Well touristic isn't a word as far as I know but I get the point.
Well this event seems to be political as well and it received $2,000,000. This isn't the first time that this "touristic" event was picketed either. If I didn't know better I'd say its getting as bad as the G8 summits.
Call me old fashioned but when an event is picketed it IS political and I don't recall any picketers at Toronto Pride...ever.

Ottawa is planning a memorial for communism's victims. This is a bit much don't you think? Elevating a form of government to the holocaust. Its the decisions governments make, how they implement policy that hurts people, not a form of government.
Hitler wasn't a communist yet look at we he did. Should we ban democracy too because that's how Hitler got into power? All it required was messaging and making a group of people look like the cause of society's ills. Much like how Harper derides liberals, homosexuals, or anyone other group that is too smart to vote for him and his ilk. Maybe to be fair they could put in a monument to those who died due to right wing governments. You know those leaders like Hitler, Franco, and Pinochet.
An example of right wing policies killing someone can be seen in the Harris government of Ontario. The Harris government's welfare policies resulted in a pregnant woman in Sudbury, Kimberly Rogers, dying while serving a house arrest for welfare fraud. The woman had been confined to her apartment for three months and reports stated her pregnancy was "exacerbated by sweltering conditions in her apartment". Just a note but this was John Baird's portfolio. So the same beliefs that created this situation lives on in our federal government.
Stay tuned for China's response. This may just be Harper's "axis of evil" moment. Recommend this Post

Please do provide more information feds.
Why are we exporting such items to country's whose human rights are described as dire?
According to international-trade data available on the Industry Canada website, Manitoba exported a total of $3.1 million in "arms and ammunition" to foreign countries last year. That could include anything from flame-throwers to shotgun cartridges to rocket-launchers, and it's double what the province exported in 2004.Recommend this Post
...The data baffled Manitoba peace groups and raised more questions than Ottawa was willing to answer.
To export weapons — even one gun to a private hunter in the United States — requires an export permit from the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. Getting a permit is a process one vendor called such a "humungous hassle" that virtually no Manitoba retailers bother.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade wouldn't reveal any information about the permit issued to export 110 guns to Saudi Arabia, saying the buyer and seller are confidential.

The boys, who were the altar boys in these parishes, generally came from the more devout Catholic homes. The more devout, the more religious parents that pushed their children to become altar boys, and these were the boys who were victimized by their parish priest.
And how did the Catholic Church respond to this abuse?
There were also allegations that previous investigations, beginning in 1975, had been covered up, and the offenders whisked away to other provinces, where they received treatment and soon took on new religious postings.
Irresponsibility, denial, and law evasion.

Now contrast this with Abrahamic beliefs. 6 days to get to life and they forgot women. Women were an afterthought and made out of a rib bone which if we actually could make anyone from it would be another man since its got XY not XX. Plus we know stem cells are a no no with reluded people. Its never mentioned but did females animals get left out also? Humans supposedly have no connection to animals, and on and on with the complete ignorance of the world around them.
Little did they know and still today they deny the existence of junk DNA, that little bit of info carried forward from the previous species to the newly adapted one, providing a link back to all life's ancestors. It is completely backed up by evidence and requires no faith at all.
Whereas, religious folk, like Stockwell Day, has some sort of dinosaur rodeo envisioned with humans and dinos frolicking together. The only dinosaur in that imagery is Stockwell himself.

I see the Conservatives are maintaining a denial of women to fight for equal pay, a carryover from the poisonous December fiscal update. On top of that the budget completely fails those who have lost jobs and about to lose them.
An extension of five weeks for EI is useless because there is a group of people who decide what you get. I was given only 20 weeks after paying into EI for the past 9 years. So should I expect to now get 25 weeks? Of course not that's up to the group to decide. All they have now is an extension of the max a person can receive when considering their application. Nothing more.
As a Liberal, I cannot support this budget because of the women's pay equity issue. As a recently unemployed person I can no longer support my party if they choose to support this budget for political reasons instead of doing whats right.

In the last 12 month period I have lost two jobs. The first position was one which I held for 7 years. After 2006, with a Conservative government, EcoAction funding was slashed. I lost two co-workers immediately, Over the course of the next two years funding continually dwindled to the point that I was notified I would also have to go in order for the organization to stay belly up. To avoid lay-off I managed to get another job and avoided having to apply for Employment Insurance. Failure on the Conservatives part to be truthful and actually do something to head of the worst of the recession resulted in a second job loss.
After 6 weeks I finally was approved for EI for only 20 weeks. A coworker with less hours than I and after only working 6 months received 30 weeks. Make sense? Not to me. After 8 years of paying EI I get diddly squat after 6 weeks of surviving on my own. EI covers my rent and student loans only. Yet I hear Harper is extending benefits to self employed women, a group who don't even qualify. Buying votes again, I see.
I know I will be recalled back to my previous job in March/April but the problem is that the EI program will not get me that far. All gains I have made since graduating will be wiped at that point. I will have exhausted my savings and may have to default on student loans.
What I expect to see from the government is that they treat the program as it should be, not as if it is being administered by Manulife Insurance. I paid in, so pay out. Give me the max coverage or from here on in stop deducting it from payroll. I'll bank it myself. Give an actual 55% of wages and do not cap it. Get rid of the waiting period and stop clawing back money should someone unfortunately luck into a part time service job. I don't want free money, I want to get from point A to point B without losing everything I have. I paid premiums for a reason. Its the least I am owed after the mess the current government has allowed to happen. I don't care about tax cuts because currently I and other unemployed people have NO INCOME!
I expect nothing from the current government, a continuation of what they haven't been doing is no surprise. My expectations fall squarely on Michael Ignatieff. He's talked a great deal about what he wants in the budget but hasn't said exactly what he will do if it doesn't contain what he wants. I expect Mr. Ignatieff to vote it down and go to an election or a coalition. I expect nothing else. This, to me, is a test of his leadership and whether I can support him as a leader of the Liberal Party. This time my party leader's choice will definitely affect my life immediately.

...for the most idiotic opinion piece ever. Tom Flanagan says Canada is NOT a constitutional monarchy.
Here's a tidbit:
Canada changed from a constitutional monarchy to a constitutional democracy as the franchise was extended to all adults and political parties became national in scope. That evolution was recognized in 1982 in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Whats concerning is the revisionism seen in this piece, he completely reinvents Canada and its institutions. Not to mention the contradictions such as Harper using the means provided by our constitutional monarchy to prorogue parliament yet Flanagan would have us believe that we are not even a constitutional monarchy. Even worse, he doesn't even understand/refuses to acknowledge how our system even works.
I would say that the attempt to whitewash our understanding of our own government borders on treason in its attempt to change how our system works without actually changing it and trying to make us believe we have a system similar to the US. Misinform and take advantage of it to suit your needs.
We don't need any Anti-Canadian neo-con trash telling us what our country is or how it works.
