Federal Conservative Agriculture Minister THREATENS Canadian Wheat Board

"It means that the board has sufficiently stalled things long enough that they'll survive until after the election," he said. "When we come back with a majority, then all bets are off."
Hon. Gerry Ritz
Agriculture Minister of Canada

Calgary Herald

NOTE: This is right out of the Stephen Harper Procedures Manual:
'When you cannot get your way through manipulation, use threats and intimidation'

This is how the Harper government operates - with bullying and intimidation. We'll see if they win a 'majority'!!

Gawd, they're not even being coy about their agenda anymore, are they?

Comment from my husband: "What, are they going to outlaw unions next?"


One can only hope...

Would someone please remind Minister Ritz that he's a servant of the Crown and he'd better act like a servant rather than a slavemaster?

This bullyboyism is getting to be too much of a crutch for the conservatives. It's a last resort caused by a lack of insipired leadership.

Mike Harris' spectre haunts Conservatism to this day.
Time to give these bullyboys a back of the barn discipling. Ah yes, discipline--whatever happened to it in this so-called government?

Wow! Just wow.

I hope this comment is going to be publicized across the country. Then the Cons can say one of their ministers is loopy fringe and doesn't represent the party....or...they can own it just ahead of the election they want so bam dadly.
