It Was a Conservative Election Promise. Pay No Attention. That Was Then, This Is Now.

It's getting hard to keep track now.

The Canadian Newspaper Association has conluded that "The Harper government is allowing the continuing practice of blocking the media from obtaining material through the Access to Information Act while the information commissioner's office is frozen in inaction..." and "...the Harper government has failed to bring in legislation strengthening the Access to Information Act as promised in the 2006 election." (Emphasis added)

No blaming Liberals for Conservative promise breaking.

That would be, let me see? Craven? Duplicitous? Mendacious?

Problem is that those are adjectives that are applicable to each and every member of our entire political elite, right across the fucking spectrum.

Mostly these days I despair.
