$tephen Harper = The Dumbest Government In The History Of Canada

So many screw-ups by the governing Conservatives. Day after day they stumble around with their idiotic post Reform Party ideology, screwing up one thing after another ... telling one fib after another to try and cover.

"We want our governments, no matter which ones we elect, to at least be smart with our money. But this week, we got more evidence the federal government can be one dumb son-of-a-gun.

And, no, I’m not talking about the census.

That was really dumb, too, and the tiny tweaks offered up Wednesday by Industry Minister Tony Clement don’t make the government look any smarter. In fact, you could say the government’s gone from dumb to dumber on that file. Removing some of the legal sanctions you might face for failing to fill out the mandatory short-form census that everyone gets now likely means more will not fill that form out.

So now the data from both the long-form and the short-form census — which will cost us millions more to collect — will both be less reliable.

But no, I said I wasn’t talking about the census.

The latest evidence Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives do dumb things comes from Parliament’s budget watchdog, and it’s about how Ottawa is going about spending $4 billion on one of its infrastructure programs.

Watchdog Kevin Page, the parliamentary budget officer, looked at this program and said, first, the government itself doesn’t seem to have enough information to be able to assess how it’s working — that’s dumb — and, second, because of an arbitrary deadline Ottawa has set, as much as $500 million worth of projects may not get done or, if they do, someone other than the federal government will have to pay for them. That’s dumber.

That “someone else,” by the way, is likely to be municipal ratepayers who could have to cover off a big chunk of the fed’s recession-fighting stimulus program.

-The Public Is Still Flying DESPITE Conservative Claims ...

-Tories Twisted Census Findings ...

This is quite amazing, Mario Laguë is killed in the worst way possible and the Mainstream Media does not disclose ANY of the details.

Is it possible to be any more incompetent than that?

Thank God, the truth is not entirely ignored.

It's time for a new Administration. Mario Laguë was the only Communications Director in Canada who was worth listening to and HIS message lives !

The biggest tool of the totalitarian state is the cultivation of ignorance among the masses. The Cons are becoming masters of the art.
