In light of Oliver Oil's recent comments on the Northern Gateway JRP process, I'll go one step further and suggest that the Harper-cons think the Chinese government has the right idea when it comes to rights.
These recent events are instructive in that they reveal a little more of the Harper's plan for mutilating Canada. We're set to become a weird northern version of a petroleum-addled authoritarian banana
International trade policy is going to centre on selling tar sands oil. Domestic policy is going to focus on crushing any resistance to it and the rest of the suite of far-right reactionary crap the ReformaTories want to impose on the nation. We've already got the military glorification and the princeling ministers with their Quadaffi-esque sense of entitlement.
To hell with these people.
