Dear Jack Layton: In the meantime Women and children are going hungry!

So the NDP leader has decided to filibuster back to work legislation for the posties. More proof they will do anything to keep those donation cheques flowing from unions and their members. While Mr. Layton does this, thousands of women and children across the country face eviction or hunger because their support payments haven't made it to their bank accounts.
Unions over women and children. Brilliant strategy that.

A Stanley Cup Prayer


Our father who art in Boston. Hockey be thy name.Thy will be done. The cup will be won. On ice, as well as in the stands. Give us this day our hockey sticks. And forgive us our penalties, as we forgive those who cross-check against us. Lead us not into elimination. But deliver us to victory. In the name of the fans, Lord Stanley, and in the name of da Bruins. Amen.

Liberal Party Says "Let Your Voice be Heard"

So let's do the math shall we. 3000 delegates to a virtual "special meeting". Length of the call to be 90 minutes to 2 hours. President rambles on for 20 - 30 minutes. people allowed to talk? What, maybe 20. Now that's REALLY having YOUR voice heard.

The Bravest Girl In Canada

The voters of Canada were fooled. But this little page girl sure wasn't. She needs a job. Look her up. She has done what many of us wish we could do. Stop Harper!

Cheers to you Brigette DePape!

If Ever There Was A Time When the Liberal National Executive Should Mass Resign, It's NOW!!!

Here's Why! Direct Violation of Constitutional Section 54.3.b. Regardless of whether or not there is a "Special Convention", the Executive had to set out a Leadership vote for October, 2011. That includes all the rules for said leadership. Arrogance and stupidity are the only two logical explanations for this blatant disregard for our constitution. I suggest all of you email every one of the executive asking for their resignations.

On a recent conference call of the Council of Presidents, even Alf Apps said he "must call leadership by May 30th". I guess good ole Alf thinks the Special Convention amendments will be passed on June 18th and the rest of the constitution can just be ignored. Maybe he knows something we don't.

54 Call of Leadership Vote

(1) The Leader ceases immediately to be the Leader when:
(a) due to incapacity, the Leader ceases to be recognized by the Governor-General
as the leader of the Party in the House of Commons;
(b) the Leader dies;
(c) there are published in accordance with this Constitution the results of a
Leadership Endorsement Ballot in which the Leader is not endorsed;32
(d) the National Board of Directors declares in accordance with Subsection 55(2)
that the result of a Leadership Vote is invalid.

(2) If the Leader publicly announces an intention to resign or if the Leader delivers to the
National President a written resignation or a written request to call a Leadership
Vote, then the Leader ceases to be the Leader on the earlier of the appointment of an
Interim Leader and when a new Leader is elected by the members of the Party.

(3) In the circumstances set out in Subsection 54(1), if the Leader publicly announces an
intention to resign or if the Leader delivers to the National President a written
resignation or a written request to call a Leadership Vote, the National President must call a meeting of the National Board of Directors to be held within 27 days, and at that meeting the National Board of Directors must:
(a) in the circumstances set out in Subsection 54(1) or if the Leader so requests, in
consultation with the Caucus, appoint an “Interim Leader”;
(b) set a date for a Leadership Vote to be held within five months;
(c) fix a deposit, refundable or otherwise, to be paid by each leadership contestant

And the Liberal Party Wonders Why Grassroots Think They are Cheats

The next 28 hours are the last chance to submit your Form 6 for the illegitimate "Special Convention" that nobody will get to speak on. Coincidentally, the LPC(o) and LPC websites are conveniently not working as I write this blog. But hardly anybody is screaming that the whole "virtual meeting" is a sham, right Mr. Apps?
