Harper's Kyoto Speeches: Email Quotes to others

I wish the Liberal party would stop putting Harper’s Kyoto speeches into PDF files. They are easier and quicker to access in html. It is also easier to paste in html. This is important. The Liberals want people to send quoted material to their friends via email who will send it to their friends and so on. There are a lot of Liberal blogs listed here. If everyone emailed 30 people and these people emailed just 15 more people, these quotes could reach fair number of Canadians. So, get busy.

Anyway, when discussing these speeches the Liberals must not focus on the economics of Kyoto. The focus has to be on Harper’s denying that human activity is unrelated to global warming.

The following is a good example: "Steve" Harper: “Kyoto simply does not target air quality. It is instead designed to address the so-called “greenhouse gas” phenomenon, the hypothesis that the increase of certain gases – not necessarily pollutants – contribute to a long term global warming trends.”

oh my god... I just read your site... you're a real life ideologue!

I can't figure out if you are blindly in love with the Liberal party, or fanatically anti-conservative? Either way you scarily remind me of one those bible belt republicans who vote republicans because they are republicans and they hate democrats?

Did Liberal marketing tactics from the last election really work that well on you? Have you ever strategically aligned up your policy views and compared them to the Liberals or do you just reactionarily go anti-conservative and then get torn when the Liberals and Conservatives have the same view (e.g. climate change right now).

Punish the NDP for splitting the left, Harper is evil bring him down with the use of hate memes,... this is almost border line fanatical. Why punish the NDP? Isn't the minority government right now one of the greatest moments in Canadian democracy? All parties are effectively participating in making policy and earning each other's trust - why is it wrong for the NDP and Conservatives to write bills together? Was it wrong when the Liberals and Conservatives wrote the legislation together recognizing Quebec as a nation within a nation? If the parties can stop being partisan why can't you... stop falling for the marketing and propaganda machines of partisanship and make informed, non-reactionary opinions!

Needless to say, you are Green supporter of a different colour. Indeed, you strike me as Conservative supporter pretending to support the Green party so as to appear critically objective. Note secret agent: a Green supporter is unlikely to claim Stephen Harper was just doing his job by trying to cast doubt on the reality of global warming.

I do not know how many posts of mine you have read, so I will focus on that I know you have read.

Negative comments about the Liberals:

1) “The Liberals never understood why SSM was a winning issue. They figured it must have something to do with the popularity of the Charter and as their cherry pick line polled extremely well they went with that. They made themselves out to be the Charter’s champion and this led them to propose sealing off the notwithstanding clause. There are echoes of such thinking in some of the party’s public pronouncements still. However, SSM was not a winning issue because the Liberals were able to convince Canadians that they were the Charter’s honor guard.”

2) “Another possibility is Afghanistan. However, to date, the Liberal’s performance on this issue has been at best mixed. As with SSM the Liberals have not understood why the issue gave the Tories so much trouble during the summer and why it has the potential to do so again.”

4) “The Liberals have talked about decriminalizing marijuana on and off for 34 years and have done nothing. Worse, the Liberals approach to marijuana is superficial and muddled. The party can not decide just where it stands on the issue. The Liberals strangely favor both decriminalization and tougher sentences for trafficking.”

5) “Chrétien’s dismal environmental record”

Positive comments about the Liberals

1)Stephane Dion is doing exactly what is good for the country and for the Liberals; he is talking about expanding the program. Vancouver Sun: “A federal Liberal government would provide funding for supervised injection sites in more Canadian cities, party leader Stephane Dion said Thursday. "It's a pilot project which seems to be quite a success," Dion told reporters in Coquitlam, referring to the Insite safe injection site in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. He said the Liberals would support projects similar to the Vancouver site only if they were proposed by local government. "I would give the funds to continue the experience and work with mayors if they want to replicate this experience that has been successful also abroad."

Ha ha ha. That is some good humor.
