Well, Stephen Harper is an oil mongering corporate ass. It is no surprise he would claim environmentalists are public enemies as they are standing between him and his goals of profit by exploitation. Stopping his beloved baby (the tar sands) from growing.
I’ve been weary of The Star as a news source for a while, but that is not a very common news source out here on the east coast so maybe it’s better than I make it out to be.
Anyway I don’t doubt Stephen Harper has made a statement such as this. He opposes opposition to his government. He imposed a sort of “pledge of allegiance to the Harper Cons” to the CBC last April. He threatened Parks Canada employees to not speak out against his Con government whether on or off the clock. And the United States has considered indigenous groups, participants and supporter of the Idle No More movement “possible terror threats” which probably reflects the same opinion of the Harper govt with respect to these protests that stand in the way of his endeavors.
Stephen Harper and his Cons are the public enemies. They are using a form of doublespeak to avoid dissent. They suspended Edgar Schmidt from the Department of Justice simply for doing his job in pursuing the Attorney General of Canada for letting the government pass bills that are possibly not abiding by the Charter of Rights.
Stephen Harper will oppose everyone who stands in the way of corporate profit. He supports the United States, Israel and France in warmongering for the purpose of exploitation. He will try to discredit anyone who speaks out against him.
Canadian apathy has never been so harmful to Canadians… I don’t understand how we let Stephen Harper take the last elections like that… I don’t understand why not more people are as angry as I am…
