Stockwell Day: The consumate liar

Perhaps you remember this about Stockwell Day. Or maybe this. If not, then perhaps, this. All of them pale when compared to the blatant abuse of a government resources by Day when this appeared on the Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada website.
OTTAWA, February 23, 2007— Minister of Public Safety, Stockwell Day, issued the following statement on the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision regarding the constitutionality of the security certificate process as set out in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA).

“We have just received the Supreme Court’s decision. We are reviewing it carefully.

The Government intends to respond in a timely and decisive fashion to address the Court’s decision. The Court has given the Government one year to address the concerns it has raised with respect to the process for hearing confidential information. In the interim, the security certificate process remains in place.

The security certificate process has been in place since 1978 to protect Canadians against threats to their safety and security.

At a time when the Opposition Parties are being soft on security and soft on terrorism, Canada’s New Government remains unwavering in its determination to safeguard national security and is committed to working with all its partners to protect the safety and security of Canadians.”

Does Day mean, Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition? Is he using a government resource for Conservative Party purposes? Does Day know the difference between government policy and parliamentary debate? Does he understand that using a taxpayer supported website for purely party purposes is the same breach of trust as getting on a government aircraft for party electioneering?

Stockwell Day has already been exposed as a racist, a homophobe and a liar. And now, he is bringing a debate from the floor of the House of Commons to a website paid for by the taxpayer.

Abuse of power and an inappropriate use of government resources.

Stockwell Day is so stupid, so childish and so wrapped up in himself that he hasn't the mental capacity to understand the difference between policy and politics.

It's time this ridiculous excuse for a human being was dispatched.

Write him here, and demand that he apologize. It may do no good since Day believes he holds his office by Divine Right, but do it anyway. While you're at it, it might be worth pointing out that all those billboards in the Okanagan with his picture on it are harming the economy of the area. People come there to sample the wine - not be bombarded with images of a narcissist asshole.

Oh, and in the event the Harperites try to hide what Day has done, Liberal Catnip has the screenshot, just for posterity.
