CAP Leader Opinion On The Emerson Defection

Posted on Saturday, February 11 at 22:45 by whelan costen
The Emerson defection illustrates that Canada's seat of power is driven by an agenda for North American corporate rule. The public interest and the public good interfere with that agenda. Emerson was one of three cabinet ministers Paul Martin appointed in March 2005 to implement the agenda of the corporate driven North American task force to restructure Canada into a North American corporate driven regime along with the USA and Mexico. (The other two, McLellan and Pettigrew were defeated.) Emerson has important familiarity with the implementation process. His presence for continuity is essential. Corporate driven politicians have no loyalty to the public good, nor to an electoral constituency, nor to a party, nor to a nation, only to power and greed for a select few, including themselves. The Canadian electorate instinctively knows something is very wrong at the helm. That is why we elected another minority government. A petition currently circulating to recall Emerson is an important beginning to re assert the public good as Canada's driving force. Please sign the petition if you believe that politicians must be accountable to the citizens who elected them.

    Connie, you're stretching the fabric a bit, to equate Bob Rae with
    David Emerson.

    Emerson was a living, breathing, crusading Liberal up until the
    moment he entered Rideau Hall to be sworn in as one of the
    creatures we most feared: a Harper Conservative.

    Bob Rae, you may recall, quit the NDP five years ago, but has
    continued to serve the public interest faithfully. Not even Ujjal
    Dosanjh leapt straight from one Cabinet post to the opposite
    Cabinet post. No, Emerson is poster boy for the Conservative
    threat to electoral integrity in Canada.

    This is a moment for all parties to pull together on this issue.
    Emerson is the worst example of contempt for the people. But
    there's also

    *Michael Fortier, now our Minister of Public Works, who had better
    things to do than submit to the electorate.

    *There's that poor guy, James Moore, M.P., who gets to sit
    in the House of Commons and answer on behalf of the real
    Minister of Public Works who is out of reach -- in the
    Senate -- where he answers to NObody,

    *There's the arms lobbyist, now Minister of National Defense

    *There's Stockwell Day, Minister of Homeland Security (Northern
    Division), for God's sake!

    The threat is so clear ... please, this is no time for bickering.

    It may re-pay the reader to spend a few minutes tracing the connections of Paul Desmarais and Power Corp. to the leading politicians, etc. of Canada: <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    * JOHN RAE: leading strategist for Prime Minister Chretien's election campaign. Was Executive Vice- President of Power Corp. and Paul Desmarais' right- hand man. His brother is.... <br />
    <br />
    * BOB RAE: Rhodes Scholar and ex-NDP Premier of Ontario, who appointed.... <br />
    <br />
    * MAURICE STRONG to the chairmanship of Ontario Hydro, which he proceded to dramatically cut in both skilled human resources and generating capacity [to provide a future need for power from James Bay/Grand Canal?] <br />

    I don't like party politics at all. There would be no floor to cross if there was a tapestry of independents for a government.

    I agree that the parties holding seats do have very few differences anymore. One person on a call-in on CPAC this a. m. suggested that anyone could agree prior to an election to run as a popular candidate and then right away defect into the agreement. The Emerson agreement was vote tampering in my opinion not just floor crossing and defection.

    Diogenes: you can do better than that.

    Golly gee, how awful: Bob Rae was a Rhodes scholar! Gasp!

    Bob Rae was once premier of the great province of Ontario!

    Bob Rae has a brother named John! Call out the Horsemen!

    Actually, I've been thinking that Bob Rae would be an excellent
    Prime Minister. Especially right now. OK by you?

    As can you Mary, do better than that!
    Rae's scholastic achievements nor are his abilities to con in question, his loyalties are!
    Don't even try nto play this game with me Mary
    Your heros may have feet of clay
