Conservatives Will Screw Us Over, As They Always Do

Via pogge, a story on how the Conservative government is likely to sell off government assets, no doubt figuring that a global crash in asset prices is a great time to unload them. Not that selling things like the Mint or Canada Post is ever a good idea. Sigh.

It's bad enough that we have a major political party whose main goal is, apparently, to screw up the country, the fact that so many people regularly vote for them is just depressing.

  • As disturbing as this is, I predict that this stuff will die on the order paper.

    So, what are Iggy's terms for violations of probation? (I can't say I'm that optimistic here since the Liberals occasionally go in for this sort of nonsense.)

  • Well we can hope it doesn't go anywhere. These days, I sometimes think frequent elections that prevent too much stuff from getting passed in the house (e.g. the Mickey Mouse Copyright Bill) are our best ally.

  • Of course, they sold off both RF spectrum and a bunch of buildings which they had to lease space back from.... among the many other things they did in the last few years to hide Deficit Jim's... well, you know....

    Now, the "selling off" of RF spectrum rights is a good idea, it is beneficial to the consumer, business, etc, etc... so overall no problems with it. It's just funny that the budget numbers worked out so that we didn't have a deficit that year by the same amount as we sold off... funny….

  • Yeah, well said Peter. More of the usual sell the silverware to pay for groceries financial management from the Cons.
