Canadian Election 2011: 7 charges against the Stephen Harper-led Conservative regime

Below is a brief attempt to compile and categorize the key reasons why the Stephen Harper-led Conservative Government of Canada must be defeated in the 2011 federal election.


1. Reckless disregard for/destruction of the Environment and (what should be considered) criminal inaction, collusion and obstruction of int’l negotiations to confront the climate crisis

Our shared atmosphere is on an accelerating course to reach a state of potentially unsurvivable, runaway climate extremes during the lives of today’s children.

Only emergency international action at emergency (war time) speed *may be* proportional enough to confront the scale, scope and urgency of what is already the greatest crime against humanity, most life and most future life ever (Climate Change Human Impact Report).

Meanwhile, the Harper-led Conservative Government of Canada has cut funds for climate research, muzzled scientists, ignored scientific studies that show environmental damage from the tars sands, and obstructed international climate negotiations in favour of corporate tax cuts, tar sands subsidies, war jets and prisons.

2. Contempt of Parliament, scandals, corruption, malfeasance, lack of ethics and integrity


3. Conspiracy to conceal elements of highest war spending since WWII, true F-35 war jet costs, $13 billion prison expansion (Already 20 x more spent per inmate than per student.)

4. Systematic oppression of indigenous and migrant peoples, policies that promote further income inequity, poverty and the dismantling of women’s equity and rights

5. Willful deception of Canadian public with 2008 election promise to maintain budget surplus, then runs up federal debt from $460 to $560+ billion since re-election

6. Conspiracy to compromise Canadian civil liberties, silence/criminalize dissent.  G8/G20: “The most massive compromise of civil liberties in Cdn history,” Andre Marin, Ontario Ombudsman

7. Propaganda campaign to mislead Canadian public w $26 million in tax-payer $ for Economic Action Plan ads/snow job + 6,000 pre-election campaign ads (6 x more than other parties)
