Line of the week

Lorne Gunter lets loose on Stephane Dion in an article in todays Edmonton Journal, and has IMHO the MSM line of the week.

"Dion never, ever gives details about how his Green Shift plan will produce the beneficial results he has promised, leaving me to wonder whether he has discovered a wand or philosopher's stone or bag of magic beans he is relying on."

Why would Dion set target to reduce GHG. well, the more emmission into the air the more money he collects for himself,friends and caucus and don't forget his media.

Now if targets are met or reduced no money for Dion and com.

Quebec need not work because Dion's plan will sustain them and liberals' friends while we westerners bust our buns to make end meet.

AA, yesterday was the first time I read about the prime minister recieving a prestigious award.
Not a word was mentioned on television nor read in the MSM newspapers. Please broadcast the good news to Gomely show and others and frankly speaking the MSM are not worth a dime.



Prime Minister Harper receives international human rights award
27 June 2008
Ottawa, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today became the first Canadian to receive the B’nai Brith International President’s Gold Medallion, in recognition of the Government’s efforts to fight discrimination and uphold human rights in Canada and around the world. The Prime Minister received the award at B’nai Brith International’s Board of Governors meetings, held in conjunction with the B’nai Brith Canada annual Policy Conference, the first time such a joint meeting has been held outside the United States.

“The award of the Gold Medallion generously acknowledges that the actions of our Government are guided by the principle that hate and discrimination have no place in a civilized society,” Prime Minister Harper said. “It’s a special honour to be so recognized by one of the world’s largest and oldest human rights organizations.”

Previous recipients of the Gold Medallion include United States’ Presidents Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy, as well as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Israeli Prime Ministers David Ben-Gurion and Golda Meir.

In presenting Prime Minister Harper with the award, B’nai Brith International President Moishe Smith, a resident of Ottawa who is the first non-American president of the organization, cited a number of actions the Prime Minister and the Government have taken to advance human rights and oppose discrimination, including:

Unequivocally supporting Canada’s role in the UN-sanctioned mission in Afghanistan;

Refusing to sign a resolution denouncing Israel’s right to self-defence at the 2006 Francophonie Summit;

Suspending relations with the then Hamas-led government in Palestine, for its refusal to renounce terrorism; and

Delivering a heartfelt apology acknowledging the overtly discriminatory Indian Residential Schools program.

“Prime Minister, whether in opposition or in government, you have always portrayed a leadership style that speaks of principle and honesty,” said Mr. Smith. “Our decision to award you the Gold Medallion reflects the esteem the world Jewish community holds for you.”

If the Conservatives and the NDP do a good job of attacking the plan, it will cost the Liberals seats in every province but Alberta. It is not only the oil and gas industry that is hit hard. Manufacturing, forestry, agriculture, mining, and tourism are all going to be big losers in the shaft.

I want to be like Dion as well and have part of my income tax free and have all of my home expenses paid for. Maybe then I could afford the runaway inflation his little plan will cause.

Jen, it is sad isn't it; that the PM can such an award presented to him and have the MSM ignore it almost entirely.
