As conditions worsen in the financial world, Canada’s weak kneed Harper minority government speak of selling off assets that belong to all the Canadian people. As a standard right wing tactic, selling the peoples property to friends and associates at rock bottom prices in return for influence and places at boardroom tables has long been a favourite of those who seek personal gain under the guise of “what’s best for the little people”.
How these wing nuts can justify selling off money-making assets at fire sale prices will always amaze me.
This NEVER turns out to be a good deal for the citizens.
Add in right wing ideologues operating our government with an incremental and hidden agenda and suddenly the previously preposterous idea of a Liberal/NDP/Bloc coalition sounds interesting.
