Conservatives Ignore Law - Look To Ignore Supreme Court Khadr Decision

Harper's little spokes-"man" - Little PeePee Polliviere (sp?) stated that the Harper government believes THEIR opinion is more important than The Supreme Court's decisions.

We would like to begin with some comparisons to Central Western Europe in the 1930s, but will resist that easy measure.

This is dispicable on the part of this OUTLAW GOVERNMENT.

What type of example are they setting for law-abiding citizens? That it is OK to flout the law? That a court's decisions mean nothing? Of course, that is what they are implying. Don't like a woman's right to choose? Ignore the courts. Don't like gay rights? Ignore the courts and basic human rights principles. Don't like international human rights declarations on the child soldier? According to the Harperites, "screw the courts". Just don't cry when it's a white child soldier fighting some ethnic/religious war in some far off land (maybe in Eastern Europe, etc.).

Since day one, the Harper government has thumbed its' collective nose at the law. While talking of being "tough on crime", they feed the masses senseless bullshit about what we like to call "visible crime" (the kind of crime that makes front page news) - even though crime has been dropping to historic lows over the past 10 years - all the time attempting to subvert courts.

Liberals - THIS is your battle call. Your call to arms. We need to better explain to Canadians what the implications of Conservative anti-court statements and actions are all about. We need to explain to Canadians just what the Conservative "tearing apart of Canada and Canadian institutions" is all about.

Harper wants to change this country so no-one will recognize it. The changes can be made from behind the scenes. They talk about this and that being "wasteful", or a waste of "your taxes". They will talk about tax cuts. Easy retail politics. Sure. But NOT the politics of nation building. Not even close.

We must not allow the discussion to slant in Harper's favor. We must present a bookend to EVERY Harper policy. We must do it loud. We must do it with vigor. We must put it on paper. Let Canadians see it, read it, feel it.

Let us not hold back the attacks. Time to fight for our turf, or our turf will shift from below our feet, and over to the right... The slow shift has already begun: The "debate" is occuring on the right. With a vacant NDP Party, not standing for anything on the "left"... With a frightened Bloc... There is no "bookend" to the Conservative argument.

Run from the Center Left, govern from the Center/Center Right. It's always worked for us.

Time to get our game on.

They 'feed the masses' and the masses eat it up. So instead of saying to hell with the government we should probably say to hell with the masses.

I agree with Harper on this one...the government, not the courts should rule the land.

Khadr can stay in Gitmo. I doubt most Canadians would be happy to see him back here and then get set free by the Canadian 'justice' system.

It wouldn't surprise me if some of these Cretien appointees just ruled against the government because of who leads it. They used some creative 'interpretation' of our freedom of speech laws to restrict third party advertising during elections when Harper was the complaintant.

Doing the right think would be to respect the constitution and stick to their mandate. Foreign policy decisions are made by the Government, not the courts.

Remember, the Supreme Court is really just a house full of lawyers. People forget that sometimes.

Larry, are you saying that you agree with Harper that flaunting the law is ok?

It sounds to me Larry that you would agree with Harper and even jump of a cliff if he asked you too. That sort of behavior is called brain washed into thinking like he wants his supporters to believe.

Tell me Larry,what is the purpose than of having courts if we left this sort of things to the government.The PM has no business sticking their noses in the courts. Their job is to run the country and do what's best for its citizens and not only for himself. You had better hope that you never get stranded in a forign country because your PM would leave you there to rot in hell.

Frunger, don't ever think you speak for most Canadians. The Canadians I know would not tolerate your kind of bias hare lamed ideas let alone your PM's.
Remember, the Supreme Court is really just a house full of lawyers. People forget that sometimes.

Did you forget or even know that polititions are mainly lawyers first. Do a little research in your beloved Reform/Con party. I think you have had just about enough spin to make you appear silly and bossy.

Both you and Larry are okay with your party flaunting the law it seems.Parrots repeating the Harper message.
