Stephen Harper Wins Award For Lying to the Canadian People

If Stephen Harper won an award everytime he lied to the Canadian people he'd need an awfully big trophy case.

But Canada won yet another fossil award in Copenhagen after documents were leaked, revealing that our government has been lying to us.

And we need a leak to tell us that?

Apparently Jack Layton is in Copenhagen but having trouble getting into the venue.


  1. You might want to read this poll:

    Only 27% of Canadians share your view, although the majority believe global warming is a significant problem (still, 40% disagree).

    It is possible some of the Conservative losses have been because they haven't taken a strong enough position denying global warming to satisfy their base...amazing!

  2. You are not really going to show me a poll conducted for the Frontier Centre. They are another Fraser Institute ... You tell them what findings you need and they find them. A more reputable poll showed that the majority of Canadians want action on climate change, and want Canada to have it's own plan, not follow the U.S.

    "But 64 per cent of respondents to a Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey said rich nations have a responsibility to commit to higher and harder targets than developing countries.

    Most also want to see a binding agreement come out of Copenhagen, and 81 per cent said Canada should act independently of the United States."

    If we don't take action, we could face trade sanctions or tariffs, which won't help our economy at all.

    Now the Conservatives could take a stronger position denying global warming, which will make Canada even more of a laughing stock. Or they could listen to the scientists.

    'Truthers' use various documents to 'prove' that 9/11 was not a terrorist attack. They are called conspiracy theorists. Can you imagine if our government used that to denounce the War on Terror?

    'Deniers' are doing the same thing.

    It's tough sometimes to make a call, but you always have to ask yourself 'but what if I'm wrong?' and then imagine the consequences.
