Electoral Reform or Regression?

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 27, 2016 in Federal, Politics |

Either you win or you lose, but with the proposed changes to Canada’s election process, it seems everyone wins, no matter what the majority chooses. I am sorry, but first past the post works, it just needs some tuning, so that everyone actually does vote.

Missing in action

Posted by Moaning Mary on September 4, 2014 in Federal |
Elizabeth May of the Green Party

You know I have subscribed to the email newsletters from the four major parties, yes that includes the Harper Conservatives but it is interesting to compare the newsletters being sent out to subscribers.  Yes they all ask for donations, and NO, I have not contributed one penny to any of the four political parties, yet. […]

Pot Calling the Kettle Black

Tom Mulcair of the NDP

Bad enough we have Harper pillaging and raping our Country, but the NDP too? Like what happened there Tom, and maybe its time you stopped trying to fill Jack’s shoes, and started trying to just fill a pair of your own. Might work better.

Quitting the Party or Is He?

former Premier Mike Harcourt

Sour grapes is what I call the move by former, and quickly forgotten, Premier Mike Harcourt in his decision to resign from the NDP. It is merely an attempt to get a seat at the next leadership table, to hand pick a successor to the failed leadership of Adrien Dix.

Veterans Deserve More Than Empty Words

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 6, 2014 in Politics |
Insuring veteran rights and benefits

How can any Party claim to represent this Nation, when it treats its Veterans with nothing but disdain and contempt? It is a sad state when our Minister for Veterans can’t even show up on time to meet with Veterans who have concerns about their veterans. Does risking your life for God, Queen, & Country mean nothing anymore?

Making Life Affordable

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 4, 2014 in Federal |
NDP promise to make life affordable

It is a good slogan, one that I truly believe in too. The real question though, is can any political party deliver on such a promise? Tom Mulcair is attacking the ATM fees charged by banks, as a way to make life more affordable to the average person, but is that simply because it is […]

Tom is having a Sale

Posted by Moaning Mary on December 26, 2013 in Federal |
NDP donation drive

It is funny, kind of but I don’t know, while I know that the Conservatives seem to be selling us out, does making a political donation deserve to be treated as a joke? As a bargain?

See Tom, The Senate Does Work

Posted by Moaning Mary on June 28, 2013 in Federal |

Not only did Tom Mulcair of the NDP not pick up any points in the latest polling data, but today’s Senate Amendment that gutted a bad piece of legislation from Parliament, only shows that abolishing the Senate is not in our best interests. While it has become a rarity, the Conservative majority didnt help them, as it was their own members who helped send this union bashing legislation back to Parliament.

He Is No Jack Layton

Posted by Moaning Mary on June 23, 2013 in Federal |

Personally I think Tom Mulcair is missing his chance, at giving Stephen Harper a real run for being the next leader of the Opposition. It is almost as if he is handing the next election to the Liberals, and will duke it out with the Conservatives for second spot. Polls seem to agree, because honestly, offer solutions not rhetoric. Show the expenses, don’t just say the other guy is spending too much.
