With the exception of the Vietnam draftees back in the day, any American who'd choose Canada, the limpwristed cheap knockoff backwater America-lite, over the U.S. is a moron.

Oh yes...

Crap education system (unless you're rich)

Crap healthcare system (unless you're rich)

A gun in virtually every household (and a populace that doesn't think twice about using them)

A national debt that exceeds those of several other first-world nations combined

But hey, you've got a great basketball team (thanks to your proud history of kidnapping Africans and enslaving them)

God bless America. The greatest country in the world. (at least in the eyes of Americans)

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Yeah, but definately not by choice, but that's just another thing I hate about Canada; most of your important decisions seem to be made FOR you.

Keep telling yourself that fairy tale that flies in the face of facts and actions.


You mean the Stephen Harper whose formative years were in the old Reform-Alliance Party of Preston Manning and Stockwell Day? You don't mean to tell me that he is further to the left than the Obama Democrats, do you?

Further left than some Obama Democrats.

The old bugaboo of the Stephen Harper "Hidden Agenda"... so well hidden it is non-existent.


Justice Minister Justice Minister Rob Nicholson speaking for PM Harper and the government released a terse two line statement before Woodworth's earlier news conference announcing his motion was even finished. The presser was held on 08 Feb 2012.

"Private member's motions are considered in accordance with the rules of Parliament. The prime minister has been very clear [that] our government will not reopen this debate."

Harper will not support the Woodsworth motion as he said before debate on the motion had even commenced. "In my case, I will be voting against the motion," Harper said.

And this is completely consistent with Harper's statements and more importantly his actions in the past on re-opening the abortion debate issue.

In 2008 a private member's bill by then Edmonton Conservative MP Ken App, The Unborn Victims of Crime Act, was introduced which sought to treat unborn babies as separate victims when their mothers are attacked or murdered. It was defeated. And PM Harper voted against it on the floor of the House of Commons.

In December 2010, "Roxanne's Law," a bill proposed by Conservative Winnipeg MP Rod Bruinoogeseeking to make coerced abortion a criminal office, was defeated. Again PM Harper voted against it. The Prime Minister said said clearly that his government wouldn't be supporting the bill and restated he wasn't interested in an abortion debate.

In April 2011 PM Harper said when Conservative MP Brad Trost earlier tried to revive the abortion debate in the guise of denying funding for Planned Parenthood, PM Harper clearly saw through the baffle gab and hidden agenda:

"Very clearly I am against reopening that debate. That is my position, now and in the past five years as well, and as long as I am prime minister, we will not reopen the debate on abortion. We will leave the law as it stands."

"I'm not opening this debate (on abortion). I don't want it opened. I have not wanted it opened. I haven't opened it as Prime Minister. I'm not going to open it. The public doesn't want to open it. This is not the priority of the Canadian public or this government and it will not be."

As long time Liberal insider Warren Kinsella wrote after the earlier debate on the Woodworth motion:

"For years, Harper and his PMO staff have been insisting they had no hidden agenda in respect of abortion. For years, many of us simply didn’t believe them. We figured that, when they got a majority, they’d try and turn back the clock. They haven’t. They didn’t. Some scribes are attempting to assign a larger meaning to all of this — that the Conservatives are becoming the new Liberals, for example. But that’s nonsense.


Stephen Harper is still a conservative. But, on this most difficult of moral issues, he has also turned out to be something else.


A man of his word."


"No" means "no", eh?
