Canada Needs a Hero

Over my morning coffee I was pondering this question. With all the upheaval and mayhem going on in Ottawa, why hasn't any major business leader stepped forward to express their concern over the extremely poor leadership and financial decisions being made by those dimwits who call themselves gov't representatives (yes - I know there are some who still go to Ottawa for the right reasons but they are few and far between these days in my opinion)?

In the past year, not one leader from our larger corporate entities has either had the courage, or "man meat" to speak out about the mismanagement of our country. We already know that many small business owners feel as I do and they voice their opinions anywhere they can get a audience (however small or large - ie. Chambers of Commerce, etc.).

Perhaps the "big time" executives are being silenced by backdoor deals brokered without our knowledge? Perhaps they get the right tax breaks or are paid so handsomely, that they have little regard for the middle class, who make up the bulk of Canada?

I don't know what the answer is really ... perhaps my fellow bloggers have some thoughts about why we have had a very poor showing in leadership, not just politically, but corporately as well.

The above link is to the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, and was a story in the National Post last week.

We have a hero: the hero of the new Canada is a gay, muslim, woman who hates western culture and is in the midst of chnaging us for our own good.....we never needed all thiose nasty majority rights and freedoms....onto the tyranny of the minorities in the dyslexic old bitch we call Kanadar.

Here's to Kanadar's new heros: the degenerate, the politically insane and the terminally apathetic.

It actually received fairly wide exposure. Here's a CBC clip.

Was on our local talk radio and in the Windsor Star.

W.L. Mackenzie:

Its nice to see that racism is still alive and well and peculiarly attracted to this blog (no condemnation apparently until I appeared).

Why don't you go that extra mile and put on a white pointy hat for good measure?
