I’ve seen a few comments about the #occupywallstreet campaign, but the most obvious effort has been with Keith Olbermann, who of course, has been the only ‘mainstreamer’ to comment on the lack of commentary on the situation:
So … Canadians have an option. They can choose to get rid of Stephen Harper and help Canada save face on the international scene (and amongst its own citizens) or we can have many years of burying the facts.
Tonight, we have corruption for everyone and every person … even those in ethnic communities!
C’mon down and play the Wheel of Corruption!!
(This is where I’d insert a really cool Flash animation that shows all of the dozens of options to choose from as the Wheel of (Conservative) Corruption spins around. If you want to do this, please be my guest).
Here are just a few of the finest examples of how corrupt our current government is:
Bev Oda (apparently), over-riding policy decisions for funding
Jason Kenney, caught with his hands in the till, using Canadian taxpayer funds to run his campaigns in ‘ethnic’ ridings and using his office in an obvious conflict of interest to garner votes in critical ridings
Various heads of campaign finance caught manipulating Canadian election laws to the benefit of the CPC
Handouts to Quebec … even though we’re pretending they aren’t handouts from the Feds … to friends of Videotron
Millions of Canadian taxpayer dollars to be spent ‘correcting’ Canadians that spend the time to research issues and fraud related to the Cons
The threat to eradicate truth in journalism in favour of some of your media buddies
Finance Jim Flaherty caught changing Income Trust laws, just moments after promising that they would keep them intact
Elimination of the Government of Canada in exchange for the Harper Government
Lucrative and untendered contracts to elite military suppliers
