Just consider that the federal government in Ottawa is now run by a cabal of plotters whose only claim to fame is that they cannot be investigated for any wrong-doing on their part, be they Ministers, Senators or Members of Parliament. When one reads the news coming out of Ottawa, one is appalled by the very Senate, which has permitted its members to spend freely without any control, the money that is taken from the taxpayers of Canada. No one in the present federal government wants any form of investigation into the goings-on of these elites who think that they can splurge to their hearts content with the permission of the Prime Minister. While he is quite ready for photo opps, he is unwilling to face the press and answer questions, and is aided by MPs who circle the wagons so as to save the Prime Minister any public embarrassment.
But the point is that while the Prime Minister Stephen Joseph Harper is very inept and unable to govern Canada, so are the leaders of the other two parties that want a stab at governing the country. Thomas Mulcair leader of the opposition New Democratic Party is quite incapable of governing the country, and will bring down Canada in the arena of international affairs. We have a pipsqueak named Justin Trudeau from the Liberal Party who is so arrogant that he thinks that he is God's gift to humanity. He so full of stupidity that to give him a chance to govern Canada would announce its death knell. His father was a man who dreamed in colour and spent so much money out of the national coffers that it put Canada deeply in debt.
Far worse than all this is that there is now such a big Charity Industry, where ex-politicos get appointed as presidents and vice presidents on salaries which are so high that very little money is really left over to do any charitable work. This form of double-dipping by retired ex-politicos should be banned completely, and if they want, ex-politicos should offer their services gratis, as they already receive large enough pensions to live on. If they do not want to offer the community the benefit of their expertise gratis, then hire people who can do the job and cost the charities much less in the way of wages. But, charities should never be used to bump up the wages of retired politicians already receiving large pensions.
So, it is time to take stock of what is really happening in Canada, and deal with all the issues to bring it back on an even keel.
