He’s not worthy

Once again Mr. Harper and the Harper Conservatives, by their actions, have proven they are not worthy of the trust of the Canadian people.

Once again Mr. Harper and the Harper Conservatives, by their actions, have proven they are not worthy of the trust of the Canadian people.

As many readers have pointed out — now that the Harper Conservatives have either fired or muzzled both social and Earth scientists of all sorts, they now claim that the environmental review of the Enbridge Pipeline proposal will be based on science. Question is: whose “science”?

As they proceed to intimidate and cut funding to any independent researchers whose work challenges their policies, who is going to check the “science” put forward by this government? As Mr. Harper stated clearly when he was in France recently, he has no problems cutting funding to organizations who disagree with this government’s policies.

Rather than global corporations having to meet what used to be Canada’s standards and laws concerning the environment, the Harper Conservatives have essentially changed Canada’s standards to suit the interests of global corporations (mostly foreign) who are not at all concerned with the well-being of our environment, economy, democracy or society.

I appeal to any true Reformers or Conservatives who may still be within the Harper Conservatives, please stop this group from not only destroying our wonderful country but any future hopes our descendants have of co-creating authentically sustainable economies.
