To the editor,
Since the imposition of the Free Trade Agreement in the late 1980s, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is only the latest in a string of rightwing Reformers/Conservatives (both federal and provincial), beginning with Brian Mulroney, to spearhead a calculated and systematic attack on our nation with a view to destroying our way of life and the very values we uphold.
Their efforts in this regard are designed to assist multinational corporations to maximize profits by introducing a new order that embraces a global economy holding no loyalty to, or regard for, national borders or the peoples within them.
Onmibus bills such as that passed recently by Harper and the federal government are crucial to furthering this goal. This is why any efforts to convince him to make changes to it were destined to fail.
Bill C-28 is vital to the Conservative’s corporate agenda, which seeks to further cripple our national economy, dismantle our social safety net, rid the country of environmental protections, drive down wages, destroy labour unions, weaken labour laws, and otherwise wreak havoc on our way of life and everything Canadians hold dear.
Both Democracy and Canada were fed a poison pill 20 years ago and are but a few short years away from total extinction.
For this reason I did not attend any Canada Day celebrations this year since a wake, rather than a birthday party, would have been more suitable.
