Privatizing Crown Corporations? Hell Ya!
Well, Surprise, Surprise!, as an old sitcom character used to say. Under the guise of all things called...the worse recession in history...except we are the best in fighting it...the government in it's infinite wisdom, no, it's ideological wisdom, is slowly but surely implementing what it's base has fought long and hard for.
Oh, Tom Flanagan must be grinning at the moment. He swung the shiny object and people like me got caught up in the plan rather than focusing on the implementation. Thankfully, most of us are able to divert our attention. Even me.
Here we go:
...the documents also reveal that the government will consider privatizing Crown corporations that require public subsidies to stay afloat.
In the briefing note, the Finance Department identifies nine Crown corporations that fall in that category, including Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., the CBC and VIA Rail.
We're witnessing what is happening at AECL. What do you think is in store for the rest?
Conventional wisdom suggests that no one wants an election...now. I've never understood that sentiment. No one ever asks 'why not'? I want one now. I want this government gone yesterday.
I listened to a couple of exclusive interviews with Harper today. Ha! Obviously, the word exclusive has lost it's meaning, but in the end, the PM and the PMO, chose their media exposure well. FOX, CFRB and CTV. How cozy. Stay with me now...I'm going to tie this together.
You see Harper was supposedly interviewed on the GM deal. In each and every case though, he took the opportunity to slag the Lib's and Ignatieff in particular and was given free rein. He's setting everything up. He knows that documents are going to surface about now and in true form, it's follow the shiny object time.
In this case, I'll say that he is playing chess, but I won't guess to what piece/man he just put forward. Guess for yourself. He's playing an obvious game, a game of diversion, but at the same time tactically moving in a way that he hopes no one will notice.
Draw your own conclusions, but imo, if Harper is not stopped soon and I mean now, his cute line of not recognising this country will come true.
In fact, too much already has.
