Defender Of Charter (When It Suits Them)

Anonalogue was posting a news article from CP about the CPC expressing their displeasure that the federal government has endorsed the Quebec government’s request for an 18-month stay on the Supreme Court judgement striking down the ban on private health insurance in the province.

Well gosh Mr. Dithers - I could have sworn on February 16, 2005 while addressing the Speaker of the House, you made this comment:

"I believe in, and I will fight for, the Charter of Rights. I believe in, and I will fight for, a Canada that respects the foresight and vision of those who created and entrenched the Charter. I believe in, and I will fight for, a future in which generations of Canadians to come, Canadians born here and abroad, will have the opportunity to value the Charter as we do today – as an essential pillar of our democratic freedoms."

Guess that includes the freedom to die too?? Hypocritical = Liberal Party of Canada

As Martin has stated "And the purpose of the Charter of Rights is to protect minorities, to protect them against the oppression of the majority."

Well, since things like freedom of speech and freedom not to spend a year in agony waiting for hip surgery aren't minority issues, and since "the purpose of the charter" according to Martin is to protect minorities, it's not surprising that he would choose not to defend non-minorities.

Silly Liberals!

Why should the Liberals pursue any policy that makes sense. They've robbed us blinde, corrupted the bureaucracy, lied, cheated, and committed more flipflops than John Kerry could match in an entire career; and they are still strong in the polls. They likely feel invicible... which they just may be. They represent the Status Quo, and unfortunately Canadians are not proving to be a very daring bunch.

A terrific poster!
My sense is that I could substitute; as in, Save The "almost anything," and be correct.
Such is the value of a Liberal, universally.
