I’m not sure why any one is surprised by this. The current government is all about the information control. Very tight lipped.
This is the same government which told Environment Canada not to talk to the press for heaven’s sake. Why would they do that? These are meteorologist nerds, what politics can they possibly influence?
Then you think. They talk about global climate change. Talk of this makes people start to think about the oil patch in Alberta and all the destruction it causes. People get mad about that. Alberta is the seat of power of this party. Power is everything to the Conservatives and that to me stinks of money. I don’t know how or why, but dollars, influence, wealth, power or whatever seems to constantly move their hand and not for the public good. Is Bill C-32 for the common good? The HST? Prorogation? What exactly has this government ever done for the common good?
For a dude who claims to be a evangelical Christian, Mr. Harper seems to make a surprising number of amoral decisions. Is he even making the decisions? I’d love to ask him about it one day – do you think I ever will? Not a chance. Information control.
