The commentator down here "CarolMichael" is part of that ONE THIRD of Canadians who are anti-democratic rightists, who always vote for the Conservatives, even when they attack directly our Constitutional rights, and they obviously want to re-write our Constitution and bring on a Dictatorial new system.I don't think that what Harper did in the last 2 yrs of his last rule was only his personal agenda based on his personal beliefs. It's certainly part of the laid down agenda of the Conservatives, even though they may try to re-paint their self-picture while re-organizing for a comeback. Our real problem is, even in Democracy now, that ONE THIRD of Canadians are rightists, who would prefer to see a Dictatorship here. They voted for Harper even after his anti-democratic, anti-constitutional aspirations were obvious - when the Supreme Court knocked down some of the Harper bunch's illegal moves, those Conservatives appealed against our Constitutional rights, which had been defended by the Supreme Court. That one third of Canadians is our main problem. And the Regressive Conservatives, they are not a single person (Harper); they are a bunch who are the same guys, just remember what that woman Leech (or Bleach?) said on bringing back the old (before-Constitution) ways of doing things here. In Canada's past detention camps played an important role and they might come back - I read in some books that in the Land of the Free the Bushes (republican Conservatives) built 51 detention camps for 1.5 Million (those run idle for now) and Ignatieff, the past Liberal leader said (after Paul Martin) in his election campaign that "Harper builds Mega Prisons." If there is no Democracy, even those ONE THIRD are not safe to keep their rights, only the High Elite.

Insightful essays on what needs to be done to return Canada to its favoured position on the world stage. Including information on correcting the path away from democracy the Harper government lead the nation from.
