The Fourniers Will Fight On!!!

Update (21 June 2015) – Connie Fournier and Mark Fournier, the only remaining defendants in this action have rejected an offer to settle of $1 in damages plus $2,500 costs each that I would donate to charity (outlined below). I suggest people remember this next time they ask for $.

Everyone else surrendered last week.  The Fourniers, however, want to throw away even more money. Because they're royal fuck-heads who think losing a string of legal decisions will secure them a place in history.  And, by the way, if you wonder why I wonder at all the panic over C-51: why I suspect resistance to it might be spearheaded by a coalition of gassed-out but unfortunately not yet overdosed hippies and white supremacists getting too old for their leathers...its because C-51 is The Fourniers latest windmill to charge at.  Read the gist of their opposition to it here: its nutz.  But The Left has embraced it.  So maybe they're nutz too.  That's my line of reasoning.

If you think that's a reason to dismiss opposition to Trudeau's support of Harper's pet secret police project, you're an idiot.

The fact that Blair is now a star Liberal candidate is all the more reason to dismiss what the Liberals have become in this century. They are simply a nicer-looking party of oligarchs now; not much daylight between them and the Cons.

Except Thomas Mulcair tried to recruit him first, but was rejected.

JT had my support ... right up to the point he decided to support C-51.

C-51, in conjunction with C-24, is legislation designed to suppress political dissent. It is designed to undermine the very discourse that is central to democracy.

Think about this: HarperGov has routinely referred to environmental activists as "terrorists", between C-24 and C-51, this government can now strip a good number of those people of their citizenship in this country - simply because so many people have indirect connection to other countries who will grant citizenship based on parents or grandparent lineage.

So basically, you don't think you have what it takes to evaluate the bill yourself, so you're going to define your position by measuring who's for it (your party right or wrong) and who's against it (some people you don't like).
One fly in that ointment is that Harper is for it, too. Have fun with your bedfellows, old bean.
