This was a speech from the CPC website. Please read carefully and then consider the senate appointment of Fortier Stephen Harper made today.

There are three critical reforms. First, we need to get on with modernizing our upper house. We should get on with the job of electing senators. Secondly, we want fair, fixed election dates, not dates chosen simply for the partisan political interests of the Prime Minister. And finally we want to clean up internal party politics, beginning with grassroots democratic control of the nomination process. All three of these initiatives will strengthen democracy of Canada and require a Prime Minister willing to bring in legislation and enact reform.

And from Bill Graham from CTV.ca:

"Mr. Harper ran a campaign which emphasized accountability and ethical behaviour by Canadians and by parliamentarians," said Liberal Opposition Leader Bill Graham.

"I have to say, therefore, that I am concerned, given Mr. Harper's past statements, that he's decided to put into his cabinet a non-elected minister of public works," Graham said of Fortier.

Graham also blasted Harper's decision to appoint Emerson, particularly because of the criticism Martin faced when former Tory Belinda Stronach crossed the floor to join the Liberal government last spring.

"I was in the House of Commons when Mr. Harper vigorously criticized Mr. Martin for including Ms. Stronach in the cabinet, and now, before he has even been appointed prime minister of Canada, he has already negotiated to have someone come over to his cabinet from the other side," Graham said in French.

Graham said Stronach left the Tories over matters of policy, and that Emerson's defection is not comparable.

Maybe Emerson left because he no longer wanted to be a part and party to corruption and lack of ethics. Ooops, Emerson was a Liberal so maybe it wasn't ethics. :D

Of course. Because your side is always acting on principle, while the other side are just a bunch of whores.

:rolleyes:

Newbie,

I have to hand it to you...this thread is just amazingly well thought out.

Maybe Graham should be PM. After all, I am sure he would extend the right to vote to 15 year olds...it would widen his Toronto base... :lol:

Why not?

Do the math Canuck.

The "math" teacher Belinda explains it so much better.

Stronach blasts Emerson's defection

Stronach claimed her situation was different than Emerson's.

"I was opposed to a budget being defeated, concerned about the party leadership and trying to defend national unity. And when I crossed the floor, I could've been out of a job in 48 hours if the election had been forced. But David Emerson was just elected as a Liberal two weeks ago," Stronach said.

There,now we know clearly the differences between the two defections. :blink::lol:

Captain Canada Belinda that can't speak French comes to the defense of national unity.

God bless her. If she wasn't so good looking (for a political type)...

Knowing some biologists, they all agree Belinda has had some work done.

But if she knocked on my door at two in the morning...

Ah yes, BACK to the debate, that was pretty funny Belinda speaking for unity when she can't speak French... :lol:

I didn't realise she's twice my age either. Definitely had some work done, these are the women I fear at the bars. I'd fear her more if she spoke French. :lol:

So typical of the right to defend their naked emperor.

So typical of the left to hurl blanket accusations as if gospel truth. (Irony intended. :lol: )

Am I the only one who finds it a trifle strange that Graham is acting leader of the opposition, and not a single media outlet, so far as I know, has even brought up the strong allegations (printed in Frank and all over the internet) that Graham kept a 15 year old boy prostitute in an apartment in Ottawa for his "use" when he was in the area?

Talking about ethics...

Since when is Frank considered a credible source?

Leafless, that's just embarrasing. Like pointing to something from Rabble and calling it credible.

Frank and Frontpage are two different animals yet neither are really credible. Frank will print stuff based on anonymous faxes they receive without any confirmation. Whereas Frontpage has a bit of an agenda... :lol:

Sparhawk

You wrote- " Since when is Frank considered a credible source."

Then how about-

I always wondered why the Liberals opposed raising the age of consent. Maybe little something to do with Grahams sexual preference.

Aw Geoffrey...that's not fair... :rolleyes:

Then they'd have to wait two more years... :lol:

Cry me a river newbie. Good on you to quote the opinion of the Opposition Leader of the most corrupt party in Canada. Emerson was the fist of the Blue Grits to defect; there will be more. Emerson is an excellent choice for a cabinet seat. It's not exactly like the CPC has groomed anyone capable of Emerson's experience. He manged a forestry company for years. The end of the softwood lumber dispute would be a political coup for PMSH. There is no doubt that Bush will be open to a leader whose ministers do not viciously - and childishly - insult him.
