4.THE HARPER GOVERNMENT FOR PASSING THE SO-CALLED “FAIR ELECTIONS” ACT WHICH PROVIDE NEW FUNDING LOOPHOLES, UNDERMINES THE ROLE OF THE CHIEF ELECTORAL OFFICER, PLACES THE ELECTORAL COMMISSIONER THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE WITHOUT HAVING POWER TO COMPEL WITNESSES, AND ABOVE ALL SUPPRESSES THE VOTE BY REMOVING PROCEDURES THAT FACILITATE THE VOTE.

10. THE HARPER GOVERNMENT FOR REWRITING THE LAW SO THAT THE OFFENCE DIDN’T EXIST AT THE TIME IT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN COMMITTED.

 

In a special report issued last week, federal Information Commissioner Suzanne Legault revealed that, in March, she recommended charges be laid against the RCMP for the withholding and destroying of long-gun registry data that was part of an active access-to- information request.

It seems, in a move that Ms. Legault warned sets a “perilous precedent,” the Conservative government responded to her recommendation by rewriting the law so that the offence didn’t exist at the time it may or may not have been committed.

17. THE HARPER GOVERNMENT FOR BRINGING FORWARD WHAT LAWRENCE MARTIN CALLS THE “LOYALTY ACT”

 

” A CONSERVATIVE MP HAS BROUGHT FORWARD, WITH THE BLESSING OF THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE, A BILL THAT WOULD REQUIRE PARLIAMENTARY WATCHDOGS AND ALL THEIR EMPLOYEES TO DISCLOSE PREVIOUS POLITICAL ACTIVITIES.

THE PERIOD OF DISCLOSURE WOULD COVER THE DECADE PREVIOUS TO THEIR APPOINTMENTS. THE LEGISLATION WOULD BE RETROACTIVE — MEANING ALL CURRENT EMPLOYEES WOULD EFFECTIVELY HAVE TO SUBMIT TO POLITICAL BACKGROUND CHECKS.”

23 THE HARPER GOVERNMENT'S MUZZLING CABINET MINISTERS, MPs, JUDGES, ETC and Controlling the Press

 

24. How Harper controls the spin
Zeal to manage message sees journalists shunned, bureaucrats, cabinet ministers routinely muzzled. Public appearances by cabinet ministers – whether it's a speech or an interview – are carefully staged, starting with a "message event proposal" vetted by the Privy Council Office, the bureaucratic wing of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).

If the object of the exercise was “truth in budgeting”, that’s what Kevin’s office provided. But that realism, whether in regard to rosy but flawed government fiscal forecasts or the true cost of the war in Afghanistan, has been a bit too much truth for this government. Mr. [Kevin] Page’s office has had its budget cut by one million dollars.
