National Farmer's Union President Calls Harper 'Dangerous'

Stewart Wells, President of the National Farmers Union, has a scathing letter in today's Regina Leader-Post, attacking the Conservative plan to kill the Canadian Wheat Board"

"After being found guilty of breaking Canadian laws three times in the last 11 months, my prime minister vowed that any opposition to his plans to destroy the Canadian Wheat Board would be 'walked over'.

This from the prime minister -- the person most responsible for safeguarding Canadian law and democracy.Why do I call Stephen Harper "dangerous"? [...]

Throughout attacks on the CWB, ignorance has been the trump card played by my PM. The shining example is the appointment of Gerry Ritz as point man on the CWB file. A June 12, 2008, article in The Manitoba Co-operator, headed "Ritz's colourful quotes not always factual," lists seven untrue statements about the CWB to the Senate's Standing Committee on Agriculture on June 3."

NFU President

Holy crap. Wow.

That almost sounds like the kind of language being used about George W. Bush. Can you imagine what they'll be saying about Harper in another six years if he's still PM?

Fresh Winds
From The Prairies

What about a prairie fire in Harper's pants.

Or, failing that, a prairie fire of opposition to every conservative candidate in the next election.

Remember Kim Campbell? It could happen again. All it takes is balls.

The NFU calling Harper dangerous would be the equilvalent of a Conservative MP calling Layton a Socialist. That's not noteworthy.

Of course the NFU are going to crap in the Conservative's Corn Flakes every chance they get. That's who they are.

Now if the NFU said that Harper was doing a good job, that would be something worth posting...
