Canadian tax-payers are on the hook again for some big bucks in support of hate-rants from the Left. One cannot escape it. You live here, you pay for the CBC-- regardless of what they write. Here's some winning analysis from Canada's thinkers on vandalism against Liberal Party workers. The CBC's platform gives much space to those who care to blame Conservative Party workers for it. below is the story and some selection of commentary on it. "Only in Canada?" Pitiful.
Vandals have cut brake lines on cars of Liberal supporters in the Toronto riding of St. Paul's, Liberal incumbent Carolyn Bennett said in her blog Saturday.
"The official agent for my campaign went through a stop sign and nearly hit a bus because he did not know that his brake lines had been cut," she said.
"I was sickened" by the vandalism, she said, which included graffiti, cut phone lines and cars keyed with a large L.
Toronto police said in a news release late Saturday night that some phone and cable lines in the area had been cut overnight Friday.
The release did not mention that Liberals were targeted, but Staff-Sgt. Shawn Meloche told the Toronto Star that "there appears to be a connection" between the vandalism and houses with Liberal lawn signs.
Police confirmed 10 cases of vandalism, but the riding headquarters said there were 14 by Saturday evening, the Star said.
"Just the kind of thing Mugabe goons do. Is this another desperate act of an overzealous Harper staffer?"
"I think this is the work of the Cons thugs who has no fear of the law. They have seen their leader can break his own laws (fixed election date), plagiarize and think it is ok. Given Mr. Harper complete disregard to ethics and morals, no wonder his thugs can do that."
"Been away for a while, is Vandals the new name for Harper's gang?"
"Wow, Harper has his gestapo all pumped up! Desperate times calls for desperate measures."
[This one below seems to be a parody of those above, but with the CBC audience one cannot be sure.]
"This is what happens when you make Harper anger. He turns dark blue, rips off his sweater and becomes the Incredible Fraud then spreads death and destruction on Liberal supporters thru out the region...."
"Harper speech-writers have to find something to do in their spare time. Shame [on] the Conservatives."
[This might be what passes for intelligent reason at the CBC.]
"I'd like to believe that Harper ordered his hellpers (oops, typo? or Freudian slip?) to do this, but lets be realistic. It's an individual or a group of people acting on their own. Although it would be interesting to see how these 'terrorists' vote...."
"Good heavens! Is that why Mr. Harper took the day off? Creative art-work with scissors?"
"Vandals have cut brake lines on cars of Liberal supporters in the Toronto riding of St. Paul's, This is what happens when the cons play negative In TV adds etc It creates a mind set that feeds the criminal distructive mind. Its a sad that we have come to this. Thanks Harper for your contributions to our society. It stinks of the US republican style."
This is what happens when a party leader targets nothing but hatred and slander against his opponents instead of presenting original thoughts and debating ideas on their merits. Inevitably, people take Harper seriously on more than a political level, and think that causing physical harm to opponents is appropriate.
An even bigger problem is that some Canadians haven't noticed the vandalism and mischief in Harper's plans for our future. Having no platform a week before the election - after the debates and advance polls - sabotages the democratic process.
Harper's campaign continues to run stop signs, and is going downhill fast. Let's avoid a big accident by voting Harper out of Canada's driver's seat.
