Harper and the Conservatives have been responsible for so many negative, divisive and disgraceful actions that it's hard to keep track of all of them. So, I thought it would be helpful to have a thread to catalogue them.
Here is an opening list:
- Ran huge deficits caused by ill-advised and ineffective tax cuts
- Politicized non-partisan institutions by using or squabbling with the incombents; including the GG, Elections Canada, the PBO, and the SCC
- Dramatically increased the centralization of power in the PMO
- Interfered in the internal workings of the Senate
- Appointed the most partisan and corrupt senators
- Gutted environmental rules and laws
- Used the CRA to attack environmental groups and charities that disagreed with his policies
- Gagged scientists to prevent information that would not support his pro-oil agenda from reaching the public
- Defunded pure scientific research in favour of applied science that would help his industry friends
- Destroyed scientific documents with no assurance that they were digitized first
- After being elected on a platform of accountability, did everything possible to evade accountability
- Was found in contempt of parliament
- Systematically interfered in the ability of Parliament to perform its duties by withholding information, proroguing parliament and writing omnibus bills so massive they couldn't properly be debated
- Undermined democracy by deliberately disenfranchising groups of voters that are not inclined to vote for him and by changing media rules to better allow for negative campaiging
- Damaged our international reputation through one-sided support of Israel and against the Palesinians
- Damaged our international reputation and climate change efforts by withdrawing from Kyoto.
This list isn't even close to being complete. There is a website called shd.ca
Note: if you want to debate the actions of Chretien, Wynne, Pierre Trudeau, or anyone else, you're welcome to open a different thread.
Should I Vote in the Coming Election for Such a Person?
In Canada, the coming federal election is both for the parties and the leaders of the parties, is both for the legislative branch and for the executive branch, is both for the positions of MPs and the position of PM, is both for the policies of the parties and the morality and ethics of the representatives. As a Canadian, my vote is so functional that I should vote with more discretion, prudence, and scrutiny.
However, the so plentiful function of my vote can only be voted to one of the candidates who runs for the seat in the House of Commons which will be assigned to the winner in the constituency in which I live. No matter who is the possible winner, she or he has not much relation to me after the coming election, she or he will vote in the House of Commons on the will of the leader of her or his party, not on the will of me, not on the will of these voters who vote for her or him in the constituency where I live, not on the will of all the voters in the constituency where I live, and even not on the will of herself or himself.
Should I vote in the coming election for such a person? As she or he votes in the House of Commons, she or he ignores her or his own will, ignores my will, ignores the will of the voters in the last election who made her or him elected, ignores the will of the voters in the next election she or he will asks for support, ignores her or his own will, and only obey the will of the party leader for fearing punish from the leader, or fearing expected award not from the leader.
