Dear Stephen,

As I sit here watching the evidence mount that your party engaged in a massive campaign of voter deception in the last election, evidence of like behaviour in the previous election, I find myself wonder how you might feel about all of this?

You're a politician, it's all you've ever really been. You seem to have gone into politics angry. Angry at the East. Angry at the liberal-minded national mythology. Canada the peacekeeper, Canada of universal healthcare. Canada of market regulation and the advancement of women and minorities. Canada, helper of the world's less fortunate. Canada, where consenting adults were free to fuck whomever they pleased however they pleased, and if so desired and consented, marry the person of their affections.

I'm not sure whether you really ever stood back and considered that all this freedom meant that you could also live your life as you wished without much bother from anyone else. Did you ever ask yourself why? Why am I so upset with this imagined community called Canada? Why am I so angry at eastern Canada and Quebec and so enamoured with the Alberta? Why can't I sleep at night knowing that someone, somewhere was thinking fondly of Trudeau? Or of ways to enhance universal health care? Or that some creative mind at CBC was making more good radio on the public dime? Was it some idealist notion of how life ought to be that you saw early on? One where men were [white] men, women obeyed, and the Mohammedans confined to the deserts? Did the magic of economic math seduce you into thinking that sort of perfect and formulaic elegance could be imposed on society?  Did the simple-minded assumptions about human rationality resonate, make you feel warm and comfortable against the uncertainty and diversity of simply being alive?

Did you think that if you were in charge, you'd show that Canada, you'd make it conform? You'd punish it, control it, until it warped to your will. Did you think you might be able to sleep then? 

Well, whatever your reasons, you've had your crack at it. You took advantage of a sleepy electorate, and like a kid whose parents went out for the day and left him sulking at home, you called your mates over and smashed up the place. Dishes in pieces, curtains a shredded heap, giant gouges in the hardwood floors. Windows broken and puddles of urine. Did it feel good?



Now the adults have come home and we're moving from room to room, surveying the damage. We've moved the furniture and opened your closet, and there's the missing jewellery and bills under the old laundry.

You've had your moment Stephen. We're mighty mad and it looks like you're going to be grounded and maybe even sent to see a psychologist. We've seen you here before. We saw the tears well-up when you got caught. We're watching you because we know what you do when you're caught.

You go looking for matches and gasoline.


Prorogue is not really an option here, so what is it you've got in mind? What's your nuclear option, Stephen?

That just about sums it up.

We know how long it took BC, to be rid of Harper's partner in crime, Gordon Campbell.

It will be just as difficult to get rid of Harper. Especially because he has made a terrible mess of Canada, as Campbell did to BC.

Campbell thieved and sold BC's assets and resources. The BCR and all of the priceless Real Estate that went with it. BC wild Salmon are being killed off, by the filthy diseased fish farm, permitted by Harper and Campbell. Campbell thieved and sold our rivers, destroying more fish runs, and totally ruined our BC hydro. BC mills were shipped to China, along with our raw logs. China also owns BC mines, They are bringing their own people to work those mines. Harper and Campbell forced the HST onto the BC citizens...The HST also destroyed the Education budget, school buses, gasoline, heat, hydro, all skyrocketed. The same with hospital supplies, every budget was ruined by the HST. So, BC is pretty much gone.

Harper is permitting China, to buy up the tar sands. China is bringing their own people, to work their vast holdings on the tar sands. China owns many company's in Canada.

If people remember? Fadden of CSIS warned of China intruding much too far into Canada. BC and Ontario are the two specific provinces he named,

That is Harper's solution, he is handing Canada to China, on a silver platter. Harper has made a horrible, horrendous mess of this country.

Harper also gives billions of our tax dollars to, banks, mines and gas and oil corporations. This was seen on the House of Commons TV channel. They are also given huge tax reductions. No doubt, we will subsidizing our, Canadian resources for China too.

Harper should be tried for treason, for what he is doing to our country.

Awesome letter, too bad Peevie Stevie's mind is too warped to comprehend it!

And the following from meadowlark is so accurate......

"Harper should be tried for treason, for what he is doing to our country."
