The Fraser Institute - Canada's Disgrace

Every citizen of this nation should feel disgust that the Fraser Institute calls Canada home.

The Fraser Institute is dedicated to attacking publically funded health care, education and insurance. It now also is disseminating propaganda intended to minimize the effects of global warming.

Let's start by looking inside this seedy organization.

In an article published in the Winnipeg Free Press, in 2004, Frances Russel wrote, "Earlier this month, the institute held its 30th anniversary dinner attended by luminaries of the Canadian Right like Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, Alberta Premier Ralph Klein, former Reform Leader Preston Manning and former Ontario Premier Mike Harris. Founder and president Michael Walker mapped out an ambitious plan for the future. Having won the battles against universality, deficits and debt, Mr. Walker said the institute will be turning its sights on privatising health and education. With millions of dollars in its coffers donated annually by the Who's Who of business, get ready for more Fraser, more of the time" (Wpg Free Press - 29/10/04)

And now to make their record even worse, this group of right wing extremists is determined to confuse and confound the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which is currently convening in Paris. Oh and did I mention the funding that they receive from EXXON?

This organization is dangerous to the well being of the nation and the planet.

I knew that Vive did a few posts on this Trojan Horse!

And guess what? It's making babies!

Fraser is nothing more than what I call a US outpost in Canada! [Just type "Fraser Institute" in the 'Organization' field.]

Or what Ron Dart calls the Compradors:
Compradors, in their original context, were those who were indigenous to a country but who both served another country and had charge over native workers. They were, in short, SERVANTS TO AN IMPERIAL POWER. They had been bought out by a large corporation or state to serve the interests of the state or corporation in the colony. Compradors can play a variety of roles, but Canadian compradors are those who are keen and willing to genuflect to the empire and warm up Canadians to do the same. There are intellectual compradors who are court apologists for the USA, and, as such, they are custodians and stenographers of American power in Canada. Who are some of these Canadian compradors, and how do they act as agents of the USA? - Link

Let's not blame the US too much. We're Bushwhacked down here.

TC that is a good point. Let me explain. Whenever we in Canada criticise George Bush, our own Conservative Party accuses us of being anti American. It is VERY imporatant for progressive Canadians to understand that there are large numbers of progressive Americans who have been fighting for social justice and against right wing thinking.

I think Canadians need to make those distinctions in their language and writings. Good point!!

Sorry, Tomcat, if my comment has upset you in any way.

Please note that I was not addressing this issue in terms of the responsibility of INDIVIDUAL Americans. Heaven knows that many are absolutely flabbergasted, horrified even, by what is happening to your country.

My critique of the US is always done in this context.

I didn't take offense. The people of the US brought this on ourselves by letting Bush fool enough of us to allow him to steal two elections. I just wanted to remind you that the majority of us have finally seen the light and oppose Bush, who I'm sure is responsible for as many Canadian woes as is Harper, if not more. Tell your conservative friends that opposing Bush is pro-American, not anti-American, because you're siding with the people against the would be tyrant.
