Harper the Egomaniac

Despite Stephen Harper's threat to retool the Canada 35,000,000 Canadians know and love before an election ... he still won!
And he is changing Canada at WARP SPEED, creating a record deficit in just two years, ordering military equipment worth $100,000,000,000, which our country can ill afford and selling off our natural resources to the Chinese.
Too many people did not vote in 2011 and Harper got his majority with just 39% of the ballots cast, giving him the go-ahead to destroy the Canada we love.
Perhaps this record of "comics," as we follow his stupidy for four years, will help to jog some voters in the next election to give him the boot.

And Remember!

Humour ... when reality is too ridiculous!

Toronto Fiscal Solution (Ford 911)

It was reported after Christmas, 2011 that 911 calls from the Mayor's home are a common occurance. This image was from the 911 call Ford placed the day CBC's "22 Minutes" did a spoof with him in his driveway.

Canadian Trivia

United Nations Invited to
Inspect the Squalor at Attawapiskat
Stephen Harper has steadfastly REFUSED to go to Attawapiskat to inspect the horrible living conditions, so Charlie Angus, MP has invited the UN to see it for themselves.

Dear Mr. Anaya,
At the outset, let me thank you for the Dec. 20, 2011 UN Statement on Attawapiskat. As the member of Parliament who represents the community of Attawapiskat in Canada's Parliament, I can attest that the horrific conditions that are "alleged" in your statement are indeed real. We have families living in tents, unheated cabins and shacks that have no access to running water or plumbing. In late November, I met one family living without access to firewood or proper bedding for their poorly constructed shack. This was as temperatures were plunging below -20 Celsius.
This situation did not just happen. It is the result of years of chronic under funding and systemic negligence on the part of the federal government. As much as the Conservative government has tried to blame local leaders, the reality is, Attawapiskat represents the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of isolated, impoverished First Nation communities across Canada facing similar situations.
When I was elected to represent the James Bay region in 2004, I was horrified by the conditions I encountered. During my first visit to the James Bay community of Kashechewan First Nation, a woman stopped me on the mud-strewn street and asked me how I would feel if I had to raise my children in a prisoner of war camp. Looking about me at the clutter of shanty shacks ringed in by an imposing dirt wall dike, I understood exactly what she meant.
Kashechewan First Nation was subject to two emergency evacuations of the entire population in a single year, 2005-06. The first evacuation was the result of a major E. coli outbreak in the water system. Concerns about substandard water protection had been flagged with government officials for years but no action had been taken. In fact, a federal standard for safe drinking water on reserves did not even exist.
When the federal Health Canada department was informed in late 2005 that medical officials were warning of a major health threat from E. coli in the water, government officials responded lackadaisically by telling residents to simply boil their drinking water.
This response was completely at odds with the response provincial government officials had taken to a similar E. coli outbreak in the non-Native community of Walkerton, Ontario. In this latter case, government officials moved in quickly and a massive public inquiry was undertaken to ensure that such a situation would never happen again. Yet when E. coli was found on a northern First Nation reserve, the initial response was to wait the issue out and hope that it would go away.
I have seen similar responses time and time again to the health and safety concerns faced by Aboriginal people on northern reserves. For example, Attawapiskat has been subject to three states of emergency in the past three years. Two of those states of emergency were simply ignored by the federal government.
In March 2009, the federal government tore down the badly contaminated J.R. Nakogee Grade School. This site had been identified in government documents [1] as a class one threat to human health. The school grounds are contaminated with over 100,000 litres of diesel fuel and the children have been exposed to high levels of cancer causing contaminants such as benzene And yet, despite federal promises to have medical doctors onsite (no doctors were present), the demolition was conducted as children were going to school in the nearby makeshift portables. The resulting contamination forced classes to be shut for three weeks. Children were exposed to contaminants and dust that caused people to throw up and become sick in classrooms.[2]
Government officials denied any problems or any risk to any resident as a result of these levels of contamination. And yet, the benzene levels were so high that children were falling unconscious from the fumes. As a former school board trustee in the provincial school system, I can state that if children were exposed to such conditions in a non-Native community, charges would be laid and an investigation undertaken. No steps were taken by the federal government even though the community was forced to shut the school for over three weeks.
In the summer of 2009, a second state of emergency was declared after sewage back up left nearly 100 people homeless. This was the second sewage flood in four years. As a result of the 2009, sewage failure, the community appealed to Indian Affairs for help because they had no place to house the homeless. The federal government refused to recognize the validity of the state of emergency. As a result, the Band was forced to conduct their own evacuation where families were sent hundreds of kilometers south to hotels while they attempted to remediate the damage.
The Band was left with a massive debt load from this evacuation. As well, many of the homeless in today's crisis were made homeless as a result of the sewage failures in the community.
Overall, health conditions for families are poor. There are as many as 20 people living in two or three bedroom houses. Many of the houses of covered in black mould. Children suffer from numerous health problems. For example, in April 2009 I interviewed a woman who described horrific health effects as a result of the living conditions in the community:
"My children have rashes all over their bodies. My nine-year-old has dots all over him that looks like chicken pox. My daughter has a rash under her armpits that smell like rotten meat because her arms are all torn up. My eight year-old son wakes up in the morning with bleeding nose. When he wakes up in the morning his face is all bloody. I can't take the blood stain out of the pillows and he doesn't like to use a pillow that is covered in blood."[3]
The children in this community have gone 12 years without a grade school. Over 400 students are being educated in makeshift portables. Three Aboriginal Affairs Ministers have promised to build a school for the children. And yet, it took a national campaign by Attawapiskat children to draw attention to the systemic under funding of First Nation students on reserve.
In 2008, three Attawapiskat youth wrote to the United Nations to inform them that they would challenge Canada at the upcoming review of the Rights of the Child Convention. The leader of this campaign was 13-year-old Shannen Koostachin who was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize. This is the message she gave to school students from across Canada:
"I would like to talk to you what it is like to be a child who grows up never seeing a real school. I want to tell you what it is like to never have the chance to feel excited about being educated. It's hard to feel pride when your classrooms are cold, and the mice run over our lunches. You know that kids in other communities have proper schools. So you begin to feel as if you are a child who doesn't count for anything. That's why some of our students begin to give up in grade 4 and grade 5. They just stop going to school. Imagine that. Imagine a child who feels they have no future even at that young age. But I want to also tell you about the determination in our community to build a better world. "We are not going to give up." We want our younger brothers and sisters to go to school thinking that school is a time for hopes and dreams of the future. Every kid deserves this".[4]
Shannen did not live long enough to carry out her promise to go to Geneva on behalf of the children of Attawapiskat (she died in a tragic car accident last year). But this February, a group of Aboriginal youth will carry on Shannen's dream and challenge Canada at the upcoming review of the Rights of the Child Convention. They will be led by 16-year-old Chelsea Edwards from Attawapiskat First Nation.
The background of this fight in Attawapiskat is important for you to understand so that you might put the present issue in context. When the issue of the crisis in Attawapiskat became national news, the government responded by blaming the community for supposed mismanagement of funds.
Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan said publicly that if there was anything his department could be accused of, it was being "too patient" with the community. His government effectively deposed the Band leadership by imposing an outside "manager" to take control of their finances. While Red Cross relief workers were hitting the ground in Attawapiskat to deliver emergency aid, the federal government sent in a financial controller to take control of the Band. This was widely and rightly interpreted as punishment for the community speaking out.
We are now two months into the crisis. Temperatures have dropped well below -20 Celsius. If it had not been for the work of the Red Cross, people may have died. And yet, Christmas will come with families still living in tents and sheds. This is completely unacceptable. There is no justification for the slow response in a country as rich as Canada.
I implore you to come to Attawapiskat First Nation and see conditions for yourself. This is a wonderful community that has been slowly ground into the dirt as a result of systemic under funding, discrimination and gross negligence by the Government of Canada.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope we can follow up to ensure that Canada does not continue to fail the First Nation families living in Canada's North.

Peter Kent Psycho Babble

Foreword ( as in Warning)
Since Peter Kent became a politician, (is that tongue in cheek, or what!), both Monster.ca and Workopolis.ca rate the toughest job in Canada as being a translator in the House of Commons.
It comes with the standard packet but now adds daily migraine tablets as well.
One day on CPAC TV, all the translator said while Kent was yapping was, "WTF, WTF, WTF, WTF ......)
Okay, so go ahead, read these, and have headache pills handy! You have been warned!

One Theory: Hockey Concussion

"See No Evil"

On CBC, Minister Duncan recently admitted that until October, 2011, he had no idea Native Canadians were under the State of Emergency that had been declared months before.
It took a kick in his ass by NDP MP Charlie Angus to let him know what is actually going on under Duncan's watch.
As at December 20, 2011, Duncan is still their Minister!
Just another example of the Harper Dictatorship "hard at work".

Handy Dictatorship Flowchart

Christmas "Piece of Shit" Apology

What Happened:
At the end of the fall session, Justin Trudeau got so justifiably irritated and exasperated with Peter Kent in the House that he yelled across the aisle that Kent was a "piece of shit", (simply acknowledging what most Canadians know BTW).
Of course, the clean and starched underwear-wearing, perfect Tories screamed blue murder. Justin apologied inside and outside of the House. Kudos Justin. You da man!
But from coast to coast Canadians had their laugh at the TRUTH.
Also, for those Tories reading this post. just to help jog your memories, check my last cartoon on this post ... that is how your Minister of Foreign Affairs talks. Disgusting, eh!

My oh my Tories!
What's Good for the Goose???

The Old Pot-Kettle Thing

What's the difference between the man on the left and the man on the right who has KNOWN little girls in Attawapiskat have had to empty their shit from pails in a ditch outside their homes before going to school, all the while crafting a multi-billion dollar oil regime in Alberta? For a list of more human rights violations of Canadians by the Harper Government against Canadians, sit down, I have a list as long as Santa Claus', so its going to take awhile!

A USA MSM reported Obama and other world leaders, China, Japan, and S. Korea have all gone stone cold silent. No one knows what will rise up, armed with atomic weapons and semi-long range missiles. Yet here's demonic, militaristic, dumbass Harper on the world stage blowing off about Kim. Imagine what the Rest of the World's Leaders are saying about Harper's stupid announcements! Guess it really does take one Dictator to know another!

Harper IMAGINES himself an important world leader. China did indeed send condolences. The U.S. Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, announced the matter WITHOUT condolences. The President was silent. Harper was the ONLY leader to crap all over Dictator #1. Here's a pot-kettle thingie to consider: REAL investigations should be done about how many innocents were killed in Libya by Canada's bombs in order to get SNC Lavenlin's boots back on the ground, making money again. What other country has ever sent someone so high up as their Minister of Foreign Affairs into the MIDDLE of a war zone?

The CONs apparently prefer to break the law than to allow Canadians to enjoy democracy. Farmers' vote is democracy HarperCons cannot countenance. Kim, at least, was not a hypocrite about democrcy. That is the difference between Harper & Kim. The farmers held a vote, it was in favour of maintaining the Canadian Wheat Board, but AgriMin Ritz and a MINORITY of other farmers are winning the day thanks to a dictatorship, NOT democracy. Even the Fedeal Court ruled IN FAVOUR of keeping the CWB 100% intact as it is. So approximately 100,000 people on the Prairies are having their RIGHTS taken from them, something impossible in a democracy, possible in a dictatorship.

Name one former Prime Minister of Canada who insisted the Government should be named after them. Stephen Harper circulated a memo throughout every government branch to change their letterheads and all stationary, et cetera to the "Harper Government". What does this tell you about a man's ego? What's next? Statues? This man was elected in a supposed democracy to govern on behalf of and for the People of Canada. He is not. He has fast tracked Canada into a Dictatorship. Don't think so? Go exercise your right to demonstrate on Parliament Hill. You will be arrested.

Here's a note from Leah Henderson, an innocent demonstrator at the G8G20 Summit. Does this sound like a person writing within a democracy, or a dictatorship? ... "Originally, I along with 20 others was charged with four counts of conspiracy in what was called the G20 main conspiracy group. I am writing because the past year and a half of facing these charges and living under bail conditions has meant that I have not been able to talk as openly as I would have liked. My voice has been muzzled by the state, which has served as a powerful reminder of the many voices that are muzzled by the daily colonialism, patriarchy, racism and violence of the world. While the silencing of my voice has an end date, the work to hear the chorus of our grandmothers and the Indigenous Peoples whose land we stand on is ongoing. I never considered that the people in power would see me, my community and our values as anything other than a threat — because we are a threat. We are working to tear this system down and to make space for life-centered systems that make the 1% irrelevant. Those who benefit from the status quo have always tried to crush that."

Harper REFUSES to help this innocent man wallowing in a foreign jail. If we live in a democracy and not a dictatorship, then what right did the RCMP have to give this man's FULL personal infpormation over to a foreign country? When I was not looking, did Harper cancel the Charter of Rights?

Harper Caucus Going Bananas

This cartoon was more than ironic!!!
It was developed BEFORE the Chiquita Banana announcement.
Weeks before Chiquita stepped up to the plate I designed this because I felt Canada had become little more than a banana republic the way Harper was governing the country.
Then Chiquita announced they were against the Tar Sands!
Well Jason Kenney, one of Harper's capos went on record that he would stop eating Chiquita bananas.
Doesn't this all sound like when we were kids, when the little boy took his football home because he was not allowed to play quarterback?
Chicquita's Directors are in there Boardroom quivering that Jason Kenney is on their case. Ya right! That, and Harper is going to replace Montreal's bridges before he spends $100,000,000,000 on jet planes and ships.

Hey Harper! Why Don't You Get Lost!

Just Leaving?
Canada got sick and tired of having to listen to TWO YEARS of NIGHTLY attack ads by Harper against the very respectable Dr. Michael Ignatieff.
All the ignorant Harper could ask was whether Iggy was leaving for the USA soon.
Wouldn't it be nice if HARPER LEFT!!!!!

Harper's Action Plan

When the Harper Government found out about the freezing kids in Attawapiskat, Ontario they did nothing!
Harper got up in the House of Commons and laid the blame on their community!
John Duncan, his Minister in charge, admitted they had just learned about a State of Emergency that had been declared months before!
Molasses ... that is how fast the Harper Government moves on an emergency.

How to Get Rid of Harper Permanently

This is Harper's riding.
Enter Bridget now as its Liberal candidate and have her campaigning for the next four years.
(BTW ... This one is NOT a comic. This is a very serious idea.)

Shakespeare Quote

The Attawapiskat Crisis: To All but the Harper Government

This "comic" was done as the Harper Government was stalling on aid to Attawapiskat SIMULTANEOUS with the announcement that CON Ministers stay in ultra-expensive luxury suites when they travel:

Just How Psycho Sick is Harper?
Harper RUSHED to give Haiti aid IMMEDIATELY after their earthquake but the Harper Government was COMPLETELY UNAWARE of the State of Emergency in its own country, (confirmed by Cabinet Minister Duncan on CBC), MONTHS after it had been called!
This said, Harper stood in the Commons and blasted the band in Attawapiskat over their handling of finances ... all the while Canadian children were FREEZING in the community.
