Be afraid… very afraid! Rick Mercer has posted his predictions for a Conservative Cabinet. So maybe we can’t take it too seriously, but then again, does anyone else in that Conservative tag-team have any experience that warrants being on that list? From what I can gather, there are a pile of unknown newbie MP’s that will end up running this Country if the Conservatives gain power.
That’s scarry! What’s more scary is that they are Conservative. Even further, that we know all too well what the – yet to be spoken – values are of these Conservatives. Our pal, Michael Moore has a few things to say on this issue.
Oh, Canada — you’re not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That’s a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, and certainly a well-developed sense of irony, but this is no longer funny.
First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq — and then you elect a prime minister who’s for it. You declare gay people have equal rights — and then you elect a man who says they don’t. You give your native peoples their own autonomy and their own territory — and then you vote for a man who wants to cut aid to these poorest of your citizens. Wow, that is intense!
I hope you don’t feel this appeal of mine is too intrusive but I just couldn’t sit by, as your friend, and say nothing.

I have a sneaky suspicion that the following websites will need a face-lift after a few years of Conservative Leadership:
With all the promises, it’s hard to see it all work. I guess we’ll just end up with another massive deficit – again… and see a GST drop from 7% -> 5% and then bounce back up to 15% once the Conservative yahoos realize they really ARE billions short and some parents do in fact spend money on beer and popcorn.
These next few days and possibly years may not be too bright for Canadians. You thought Adscam was bad? Hold on tight! If (and when…) the Conservatives do win power, let’s hope it’s not a majority or this just got a whole lot worse.
Suddenly ‘the brain drain’ option of working in the states doesn’t seem that bad afterall.
It’s depressing isn’t it?
