The REAL Reason Why $tephen Harper 'Will Not Rest' Until The Gun Registry Is Gone



Progressive Bloggers

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed yesterday the Conservative party "will not rest" until the day it abolishes the long-gun registry."
National Post

$tephen Harper generally gives his standard pat line that the long gun registry is a waste of taxpayers dollars .. blah blah blah.

The REAL reason that he has dug his heels in over canceling it is simply this .. the Conservative Party of Canada has taken in literally millions of dollars in financial contributions based on an endless parade of direct mail and other financial appeals to those who don't like the long gun Registry.

For years now, the CPC has been fishing for the name and address of anyone they can find opposed to the Registry in order to hit them up for some cash.

These financial appeals have not been a rare occurrence, they are frequent, shrill and provide an outright PROMISE to end the Registry.

$tephen Harper - Bought and paid for.

14 long Shadows

During a cold December day, a madman was an actor
in a play
A campus was his stage and the real world so far
away
He delivered his lines in a fast and hectic pace
as a black veil fell across Montreal’s face

Brave, intelligent women casting 14 long shadows,
Brave, intelligent women holding hands in a meadow

L'acteur odieux qui prétend être Gendarme
Personne penserait un besoin pour une alarme
Un esprit tordu qui cherche des femmes avec son fusil
Pourquoi oh pourquoi faire il veut créer tel mal

Brave, intelligent women casting 14 long shadows,
Brave, intelligent women holding hands in a meadow
Hopes, dreams and children not begotten
We can assure our Sisters they will not be forgotten

The curtains lower to the shouts of “Esprit Tordu”, “Esprit Tordu”
yea, “Esprit Tordu”
And the dimming of lights turns everything blue
The noise and reactions were painfully loud
as the mad actor gave a final bow
to the crowd

Brave, intelligent women casting 14 long shadows,
Brave, intelligent women holding hands in a meadow
Hopes, dreams and children not begotten
We can assure our Sisters they will not be forgotten

During a cold December day a madman presented a play
and our sisters of École Polytechnique could only
pray
Our great land of hopes and dreams has such majesty
and all would have been better if there was a
registry

Brave, intelligent women casting 14 long shadows
Brave, intelligent women holding hands in a meadow.
