Naming the anti-Canadians


As promised, the Conservative press office has begun its critic-by-critic denunciation of the NDP shadow cabinet. First up: the diabolically ideological Nathan Cullen.

Mr. Mulcair chose to promote activists who have lobbied against Canada’s ability to develop and sell its own resources. It is a team of those who have consistently put the rights of criminals ahead of victims, repeatedly blocking Conservative efforts to crack down on crime.

For example, Mr. Mulcair appointed Nathan Cullen as House Leader. During the recent leadership race, Mr. Cullen repeatedly called on the government to restrict natural resource development and he strongly opposes the Conservative government’s plan to streamline the review process for major economic projects…

Yet when it comes to developing Canada’s natural resources and opening up new export markets, Mr. Cullen prefers to let foreign-funded special interests hijack the process over job creation. Mr. Cullen clings to a strictly ideological position on natural resources and does not take into account the financial well being of workers and the economic growth tied to projects in this sector. His approach would result in a future with less government revenues available for important social programs and a less prosperous Canada.


Naming the anti-Canadians

  1. What vile people the CPC is made of.

    • I mean why not just line up all the citizens for the two minute hate?

  2. Maybe it’s just me, but is there something discordant in that note? The second sentence refers to friends of criminals and then goes straight on the indict NC with nary a pause for breath. I actually thought for a moment they were going to label all the pipleline opponents – including FNs – criminals.

    Who writes these things? 22 year olds, DF?

  3. Jeez, to me the Cons seem to be highlighting many shadow cabinet members’ virtues, not their vices. Thanks for noticing!

    • Let’s hope lots of other non political people see it that way too :)

      I have an instinct [ always iffy] that after 6 or 7 years of this the gilt is off the rose, to ruin a perfectly good metaphor. You can yell wolf one too many times from both ends of the spectrum. What’s more i don’t think the PMO braintrust has anything else to offer – they can only do fear – hope gives them dyspepsia. What happens when fear loses traction?

  4. Oh for heaven’s sake Mr. Cullen’s riding is ground zero for Northern Gateway and tankers navigating the dangerous waters of our northern inland seas.Yeah right, less prosperous Canada – read Robyn Allan’s assessment of the China Syndrome. What a pile of propaganda.

    • “less prosperous Canada”

      What are you, twelve years old?

  5. It is time to kick Nathan Cullen’s A– as House Leader, out of our country and Government. Canadians come first in this country and it is about time someone reminded you of this.

    • And it’s time someone reminded YOU that we are all Canadians, whether we agree with Harp or not

  6. “Mr. Cullen prefers to let foreign-funded special interests hijack the process…”

    As opposed to the Conservative Party of Canada, currently hijacking the process on behalf of their preferred foreign-funded special interests, the global oil companies.

    I wish somebody could explain to me how Joe Oliver or the PM’s communications staffers could be such hypocritical whores and still look themselves in the mirror.
