In Flanders Fields





 In Flanders fields the poppies blow   Between the crosses, row on row,    That mark our place; and in the sky    The larks, still bravely singing, fly  Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw,
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

-John McRae, Ypres 1915




Stephen Harper
actually announced
he wants to
increase
military presence
in our cities. 

Canadian cities. 

Soldiers with guns. 

In our cities. 

In Canada. 

We did not
make this up.


- committee to re-elect
Paul Martin, 2006

 





Choose your Canada.

Kate I dont know if you caught Duffy on CTVnewsnet after the debate, but it was priceless.
John Duffy got in a huff with Mike Duffy who kept bringing up the military ad.
Well old Duff let him have it with both barrels. He said it is my job as a journalist to ask these questions this is about honour and integrity of a federal party (loosely quoted)
and you came up during the break to try and make me not bring up this ad stuff again and I will not be intimidated by you. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT.
Hopefully someone has a clip.

Posted by: MikeP at January 10, 2006 11:02 PM

I saw all the new Liberal gutter ads, including the anti-military one. It's to be expected that the Grits, falling like a rock, abandon all sense of integrity and decency in their desperate quest to hold onto power.

These ads-vicious, malicious lies-are a good indication of how scared the Liberals are.

They ought to be.

When the Conservatives win the election, Prime Minister Harper and a Conservative Cabinet will have access to all government records. (Those not shredded or "missing" by then.)

Is there anyone reading this who doesn't think that Adscam, ITscam, et. al. are just the tip of the iceberg? And that a number of past and present major players in the Liberal Party, and a number of businessmen friends of that Party, could ultimately be facing criminal indictments?

Mike Duffy gets the Order of Canada for laying the smacketh down on John "The Iguana" Duffy. If it was a wrestling match, JD would be a corpse.

It was like watching a Rocky movie.

Mike P: I just logged on to mention the same thing. The highlite of the night was Mike Duffy telling the liberal wonk (also a duffy), to back off. Mike actually told the TV audience that the liberal wonk tried to bully him into not discussing the ad. Duffy absolutely humiliated the dork. Duffy was very worked up, and let it fly... he said he would not be bullied and that journalists have a right to probe these kinds of things.

Now I've seen it all!

Posted by: Debris Trail at January 10, 2006 11:06 PM

Through my job (non-political), I was in a position to see all twelve of the new Liberal Party ads yesterday. Bizarre is the only word that can be applied to them. Everyone in the office who saw them agreed that they were a sign of deep desperation for them. And kind of sad if you think about it.

I have to say that while I'm not a conservative, either with a small or large C, I'm not a big L Liberal either. And I give credit where it's due. I congratulate you folks on your upcoming election landslide, and hope that the country can turn a page for the better. I hope that the Harper team is as moderate in government as they have been in the campaign, and that ideological conservatives will be satisfied with that too.

The problem now is what will this side of the blogosphere do now? It will now be up to the Left to take the lead in holding the government's feet to the fire. That's why the Lefty blogs in the States are much more fun now than the Righties. :)

I look forward to the CBC's Neil McDonald, putting the Liebrals soldiers' ad through his "Reality Check," pointing out that Harper wants to put tsoldiers in various areas for national emergencies, such the ice storm Quebec saw in the late '90s and well as the Manitoba floods.

Wait a second, the ad's target is the Harper, so McDonald won't say anything.

Posted by: Scot at January 10, 2006 11:11 PM

Those advertisements, if you can call them that, were an insult to all Canadians. Desperation at it's worst showing crossing a moral line is just one more of the assests the Libranos should be proud to run on.

As a Canadian Armed Forces veteran, who has served overseas in active war zones, who has lost friends in the line of duty, I am appalled by the way that the Liberal Party of Canada has chosen to vilify the men and women who wear the uniform of Canada.

I lived and served in a city that HAD a military presence; and the economy of that urban centre flourished because of that military presence. Then, the Liberal government shut down the base and moved it to a Liberal-held riding.

Yes, we do have soldiers in this country. They DO carry rifles and other weaponry. They also train with it. They do this to defend the "Canadian values" that Paul "junior" Martin constantly rambles on about. It is "soldiers with guns. In our cities" that make Canada a nation where we have the right to vote and speak our minds freely. These same soldiers have bled, been maimed and DIED so that arrogant, milquetoast scumbags like Pierre Trudeau, Jean Chretien and Paul Martin can make a ton of illegitimate cash and enjoy a lifestyle that most of us can never comprehend.

The absolute nerve and audacity that these Liberals have, to infer that having regular and reserve force soldiers (who enhance the character and fabric of our communities) in our communities is a bad thing??? By the Liberal logic and rationale, our military is considered to be evil, and must be expelled from cities - if not the nation. What about the job we did during the 1997 Manitoba flood? How many homes, families and human lives were saved by having "soldiers with guns. In our cities"???? Without them, a lot of Manitoba Liberal ridings would have been under water!

The Liberal Party of Canada is truly sick! These arrogant, twisted, treasonous lemmings have no place in Canadian society any more. I cannot believe that anyone that truly loves this nation can stomache such an attack on the men and women who defend it. May they be cast out of Parlaiment forever.

I am a retired Infantry Chief Warrant Officer with 31 years service - regular and reserve. I take great personal offense to the despicable, vile (I could list at least 30 additional qualifying adjectives here, but you get my point) liberal attack add - military. I have five UN tours including in the former Yugoslavia and the Middle East as well as a tour in Germany as part of NATO forces. I dare say that not one of the back room pundits in the liberal war-room has a day of military service and has never heard a shot fired in anger. Good on you Mike for standing up to that liberal back room boy (John Duffy). The liberals lost my vote the moment I saw their add. Give me a break - not released. They (liberals) released it on the internet - the fastest and farthest reaching medium on the planet. Not only do the liberals insult all members of the armed forces serving, retired and deceased but they also insult the intelligence of all Canadians. These guys need adult supervision, better yet, they need an extended time-out in opposition - say 10 years.

Mike Duffy must have reached his personal "tipping point" tonight to publicly accuse the Liberal attack dog John Duffy of attempted intimidation while off air.
Is media intimidation the weapon the Liberals use or have used on other MSM to keep investigative journalism at bay for thirteen years.
I have often criticized Mike Duffy for his Liberal bias, but at least for one moment I was glad he found his balls and did what is expected of honest journalists.

You people have entirely missed the point. No one was suggesting that the Conservatives are going to order the military to open fire upon people visiting food banks, abortion clinics and emergency rooms-although I haven't heard Harper rule that out.

These troops are needed at the Canadian border to repel the Americans when they come for our water.The ad was about proper troop deployment!

Perhaps the message could have been a little clearer but the intent was obvious to anyone who can think for themselves and isn't a blind partisan.

If this ad were anything less than proper and above board it would have been condemned in no uncertain terms by the CBC. So there. Case closed.

My gawd you people are vicious. Long live Liberal values!

(Over to you Syncro)

Posted by: Terry Gain at January 10, 2006 11:35 PM

When I saw the first eight of these ads on the Liberal website today, I thought they could be potentially damaging.

However...I think the Libs have really, really blown this. All of the ads - all 12 of them!!! - use the same stupid "scary" music, the same omnious picture of Harper, and the same narrator.

Once this story about the Military ad gets big play with the public (and it will) each of the other ads will only serve as a reminder of the offensive military one.

The Libs may have poisoned their own well on this one...What a great opportunity for Harper to come out with an ad of his own a few days from now saying "The Liberals were right...I do want to put Canadian soldiers in our cities. I'm proud to be Canadian, and like most Canadians I am proud of the job done by our men and women who chose to serve in our Armed Forces...proud, honourable people who demonstrate daily their willingness to Stand Up for Canada".

To Barry & Dean,

Concerning your posts above. I have never had the honour of serving my country in a military capacity. The past number of years I have been ashamed of what our supposed governing party has done to our image on the world stage.

After reading a few short paragraphs in your posts, my sense of being a "Proud Canadian" is reaffirmed. Canada is an unbelievable place to live and raise families. Despite what the lieberals portray and say about the military, I'd like to say thank you for your service to our country.

Enough porky politicians in Ottawa we need to get some real people in office. I just hope the rest of the population can vote with a conscience.

Randy

Posted by: Randy at January 10, 2006 11:42 PM

What a ridiculous denial from John Duffy of the Libs.

I can only speak for myself and I will. This long time conservative will hold the governments feet to the fire regardless of what party wins. Holding government accountable has nothing to do with what party you support. This is a true Canadian "Value" unlike the ones Martin seems to have. All we can hope for is that a new government will keep itself accountable to the people that voted it in. I am fairly certain Mr. Harper will not disapoint us on this one. Time will tell...

Tim,

I agree with you. Party should not be the determining factor in holding government accountable. And yet many bloggers who fought hard to bring charges of corruption to light with the Liberals, were minimizing other charges brought against Bush and his administration. But they bought into anything the Swift Boaters said about Kerry. The "prosocutors" and "minimizers" generally fall upon party and ideological lines, which is silly. Even if you like what a party or leader is doing policy-wise, you can't ignore their misdeeds. I hope at least some people are of like mind on this.

Posted by: Fritz at January 11, 2006 12:07 AM

Way at the beginning of this thread, Colin asked for input from military folks.

Life in the military is not a 'bed of roses' but I would like to think that we serve the Canadian public with pride and distinction wherever we may be. Personally, I think my contributions to Search and Rescue have been the most rewarding of my career. As for what I have done, what I have seen and the people I have met from coast to coast and into the Arctic, I wouldn't change one bloody thing.

This email I sent off to the Liberals expresses my feelings...

"Are you guys completely daft or just severely lacking in common sense? Your recent attack ad regarding Mr. Harper and his plan for military folks in Canadian cities, now pulled from your website but still available elsewhere, is simply beyond reason.

I would venture a guess, that with my four brothers and I having been raised in a military environment with our father having served over 25 years, the votes of ourselves, our spouses and our children are now lost to you. And I’ll even go out on a limb here and consider that my 30 years of service in the Air Force to God, Queen and Country amount to squat!!! And I guess my dear wife’s three six-month tours of duty to sandy places didn’t mean much to you guys either.

Are the proud men and women of the Canadian Forces, with our terrible guns, to be hidden from view only to be pulled out of seclusion when the Liberals, in all their wisdom, deem it necessary?

Perhaps we should just be parked on the sidewalks of Toronto with our shovels awaiting the Liberal word to act.

Thank you. You have made my decision, and that of many others, crystal clear."

You're forgetting the Manitoba floods in 1997. The military did more good there than anyone outside of Manitoba will ever understand.

Posted by: Dr Woof at January 11, 2006 12:13 AM

As any good Liberal is aware the military ad was meant to outline the serious flaws in the CPC plan to re-equip our military.

The center of the universe does not object to a strong military, as long as they are equiped with the most advanced technology for frozen precipitation remediation.

It is obviously not the military the LPC and their core constituents object to, it is those nasty guns that have been causing all those problems in the GTA.

New teflon snow shovels for all our military!!!!

Military units will be first dispatched to the Jane-Finch area of Toronto in a two pronged Liberal effort to deal with the pressing national issue of winter and increase a sense of inclusion by assisting members of the empoverished Jamaican community to free their Cadillac Escalade's from their icy repose.

The LPC Forever!!!

Jaymeister,

As an American, I would catch references to American politics on these things a little quicker than most. I haven't seen one defense of the scandal-tainted pieces of the American right.

My guess is Canada's MSM has figured it out: the Grits need a new leader. As such, they'll slam Martin as much as they can, as often as they can, from here on out.

We saw a similar thing down here in 2004. Outside of Rather's memo creation, the MSM pretty much went through the motions. My guess is a lot of them didn't want President Kerry getting in the way of Hillary 2008.

Then again, it is past midnight, and the caffeine is wearing off.

My transcript:


Mike Duffy: Can I ask you a question? Who conceived of this ad, and what was in people’s minds when you would go that low? This was like something like hinting that the Canadian forces or something like what we saw in Chile with Pinochet.

John Duffy: Michael, let me answer that question perhaps with another question. Tonight four leaders debated the future of Canada in the province of Quebec. They debated child care, they debated a woman’s right to choose, they debated the future of our country and national unity, and we have now spent about 10 minutes talking about nothing but an ad that never ran. And I think…

Mike Duffy: and you’re asking why, you’re asking why I raise this? Because this has to do with integrity, it has to do with the people who would want to lead our country, this is a perfectly legitimate issue to be raised by journalists. It was raised there, we have every right to raise it, we have a public responsibility to raise it, you were in here earlier when we were off the air on a commercial break, trying to intimidate me into not going back to that ad …

John Duffy: Michael…

Mike Duffy: We will not be intimidated, we will do our jobs as journalists. Here’s Gilles Duceppe.

First off, I would like to thank all members of the Canadian Armed Forces for the job they do. You get my respect and support.

Kate, the In Flanders Fields poem always brings a tear to my eye. Thank for the reminder of past Canadian soldiers who served the ultimate sacrifice.

Jaymiester, I don't want to accuse you personally, but when the Adscam corruption was revealed, I heard from the moral relativist crowd that all governments were corrupt and that was the price of bureaucracy, just trying to save Canada, so what if a few insiders lined their pockets relative to the size of the Federal budget, blah blah blah . Now, are you are saying all politician must be held to a higher standard. That you have to do what is morally right, not just what is legal or what they can get away with?

Posted by: qwerty at January 11, 2006 12:24 AM

None of you can imagine this at all, particularly not PM's people. I came home from work one day, over the hill to watch the sunset on the ocean and to my surprise there was a warship sitting in the harbor. My sleepy little town has a warship in it's harbor. This was just days after 911. Can you imagine what I was thinking at the time?

Canada's Liberals tout themselves as so much better than GW Bush. You aren't. You are worse. At least Clinton knew his enemy. Canada still thinks it doesn't have any - even though bin Laden specifically named Canada on his list of countries to destroy.

A Liberal who missed that after 911 and made the statement that Kate quoted needs to have their privates twisted into a tight knot. Can you believe that? No, Mr. Liberal, what I can't believe is your lies.

Mr. Harper, please increase our security....and you can start by kicking the anti-Canadian Democrats out of office. Whoops. Did I say Democrat? I meant Liberal....whoops, did I capitalize Liberal? I meant small 'l' liberal....

D.J.

Regardless of country, I was just making a general observation that bloggers tend to break on ideological and party lines when it comes to which scandals they want to pursue or which reports they want to believe. And while everybody has an agenda, and in cyberspace we are generally pretty transparent about it, it does mean that you have to still have to work pretty hard to find truth out here. One thing the Left and Right agree upon is that the MSM is useless.

(And you'll have to explain to me how it is that Viacom and General Electric are so keen on having liberal politicians in power.)

Posted by: Jaymeister at January 11, 2006 12:27 AM

As a serving member of the Canadian Forces, who lives in a city with soldiers, sailors and airmen as part of the citizenry I am disgusted by the fear mongering appearance of that piece. What is even more troubling about it is that I am also a FEDERAL employee. My employer has smeared my image and that of my peers, or at the very least has attempted to. The vilification of the United States for political gain is one thing - the vilification of a strictly volunteer segment of your own population is just abhorrent. I can only imagine how this will help recruiting... I'm sure people will be banging down the doors to join now.

I come from a proud tradition of military service in my family. Some of may even recognize my last name from a certain "scandal" years ago. The people of the CF are very proud of the job we do. And we're citizens alongside all Canadians in almost every town and city in the country - and yes we even have weapons. The people of this great community (Victoria) must be frightened daily by the warships in the harbour and the Helicopters in the sky.

Honestly, by posting this I could be seen as somehow insubordinate. I want to make something very clear in this regard - As a member of the CF, I am bound to serve my country no matter what government is in power. I have, in fact, served my entire career under a Liberal government without complaint for the jobs we are told to do - and have done so with pride. All members will do what they are told to do by the government - it's our job. (NOTE: I doubt the leadership of the CF is particularly happy about the ad either).

But I can vote too. And already have. I look most foward to the results - no matter the outcome.

qwerty,

I have NEVER given the Liberals a pass on any of their scandals. I am quite happy to see the country rid of them, even if I'm not a Harper fan. Granted, I do believe that power corrupts, despite the best of intentions. But the Chretien/Martin Liberals took corruption to a new level by Canadian standards and have to face the music, politically and legally. The only thing I take issue with is that I should take it on faith that a Harper government will be clean. Maybe it will, but they have to show me. Politicians of any stripes don't deserve the benefit of the doubt. If they are true to their word, I'll give them credit. I call'em as I see 'em.

(As I said on the Rosemary Thompson's CTV blog...)

I SAW THE CANADIAN FORCES ATTACK AD ON THE ***LIBERAL WEBSITE***.

Why have the Liberals removed the advertisement from their website where they implied Stephen Harper was conspiring to lead the Canadian Forces into a military dictatorship by, somehow, controlling the second-largest country in the world with 100-regular (Canadian) soldiers and 400-(Canadian) reservists in our largest cities?

I thought Stephen Harper said he was doing this to provide for Canadian protection in the event of a disaster. You know, Katrina, earthquake, tsunami, ice storm, avian flu, terrorism. Real things that are happening around the world. I was a Canadian infantry reservist (*snowed in* in Port Alberni, BC in fact!) when my reserve unit was deployed in Victoria helping seniors, shut-ins, and others during the 1996 snow storm.

Imagine how surprised I am to realize our real purpose was not to defend Canada from tyranny like against Hitler and Tojo as the far braver and more heroic members of my old unit did in years past, but to strike terror into Victorians by oppressing them with our "guns".

Do Paul Martin and his fear-mongering Liberal strategists deserve to lead our amazing country? Or is there a better mainstream alternative?

Jaymeister,

Good point on the blog bias.

I'm not sure which side of the border you call home, but your question on Viacom and GE was a classic question from the economic left. I mean that not in a perjorative sense, althought I disagree with the economic left on a number of things, but only to make a point that, perhaps, is being missed by the economic left in general (and certainly in Canada). American elections are not about economic philosophy anymore. One could argue they haven't been about economic philosophy since 1952 (when Ike brought the Republicans on board to the New Deal welfare state in general). Or perhaps 1972 (when Nixon dropped any negative reference to Johnson's welfare state expansion - the "Great Society" - during his, Nixon's, re-election campaign). It certainly hasn't been an issue since 1996, when Clinton jettisoned any real opposition to Ronald Reagan's oblique criticism of expanding government ("The era of big government is over").

American elections are largely decided on social, lifestyle issues now, and here, the higher-ups at Viacom and GE, being mainly from the New York City/Los Angeles set, are in full agreement with American liberals. To give you an idea of who far American politics has left the economic debate behind, the most politically divided income group during the 1990s were the voters who made over $100,000 a year.

The good news for conservatives is that no one hates the rich anymore; the good news for liberals is that as a result, the rich don't hate them anymore.

At least that's what's happening down here.

Jaymeister, the "all the parties are the same" is a fabrication on the part of the corrupt. They are not. All governments make their share of mistakes, no question, but this is not the same as drawing moral equivalencies and smearing all with the same ethical brush.

I'll ask you to cast your mind back to the Monica Lewinski days of Clinton, when every night on the nightly talk shows we heard that "all politicians do it"..

It was like the twilight zone.

Jimmy Carter???
Ronald Reagan??

In the oval office, no less?????

Of course not "everyone of them" had affairs on the side. But if you could convince enough unthinking sheeple that they were "all the same", you could keep your lowest common denominator leader in office.

That's what you're hearing when people dismiss corruption as "just politics as usual". It's not.

It's just a sign of how far Canadian ethics have decayed.

Kate,

Where did I ever say that "all parties are the same"? I said "power corrupts". I made no moral equivalencies, and said that the Liberals were off the scale of what we have experienced in Canada. Why is it that every time I make a point that's not 100% fawning over Harper, you respond as if I'm defending the Liberals? You obviously don't read what I write over at my place unless it has a TrackBack to you.

To clarify: I don't consider corruption as acceptable in any way, shape or form. It has to ber dealt with severely, and I hope some Liberals rot in a cell for a while. But recognize that human nature has a long track record. I'll bet you a steak dinner that there will be some sort of scandal in the Tory government over the next four years. Wanna take me up on that?

Not to dismiss Col. McRae, but I believe this quote, from Canada's greatest General, perhaps contrasts best the hate and despotism spewed by PMPM.

"Under the orders of your devoted officers in the coming battle you will advance or fall where you stand facing the enemy. To those who will fall I say 'You will not die, but step into immortality. Your mothers will not lament your fate, but will be proud to have borne such sons. Your name will be revered forever and ever by your grateful country, and God will take you unto Himself' ".

I reckon that support for the Libs is a touch low amongst CF personel. So... DEMONIZE THEM!!!! Attempt to win votes amongst recent immigrants who have had the good fortune to escape police states. Remember, EVERY VOTE COUNTS!!!

Yes New-Canadians rescued by Liberals, armies are armies, they have guns and thus are evil. The CF under Harper will act like the Tonton Macoute in Duvalier's Haiti. Only Paul Martin can keep the General Staff in check.

So Harper would use the CF to declare martial law. Armed Soldiers In The Cities!

Canadian Forces site:

"The place of Militia units in their local communities must not be discounted as an anachronism or 'surplus' force structure. As the Regular Army becomes more concentrated in fewer bases distant from Canada's population base, the often-touted "footprint in the community" role of the Reserves must be maintained as no less than a core activity of the CF. Indeed, community based presence of the military is more important now than at any time since the Second World War. Decisions made affecting that presence must not compromise the balance between short-term operational requirements and the longer-term public policy interests."

Jaymeister said "The problem now is what will this side of the blogosphere do now?"

First, get behind the NDP. Push them into second party status. The country can ill afford to have either the Bloc or Blockhead Dithers as Leader of the Opposition.

Then, push your leader to declare that, wherever possible, the NDP will attempt to be involved in the decision-making process by trying to find ways in which the Conservatives and the NDP can come to consensus. The country needs healing right now, not partisanship. The Conservatives won't be putting forward their more controversial platforms until they've proven they can get the job done on things which don't divide Canadians. Jack has the chance to be a positive contributor to that process.

Third, listen to your fellow Canadians, including the Conservatives. You think Canadians distrust the Conservatives? They distrust you more. If you do succeed in achieving third or even second party status in this election, at the expense of the Liberals, it will only be because 13 years of corruption, scandals, and deceit have finally caught up to them. This is your opportunity to put forward a positive vision for the country.

Finally, at every meeting, every event where you see Jack, follow the example of the little old lady, who told him to stop tearing down the Conservatives. Having ideas different than you is not dangerous. Foisting ill-considered ideas on Canadians, and intimidating your opponents so they
don't protest, is. If the Conservatives are wrong on an issue, say so. But don't assume they're wrong just because you disagree.

Ujjal Dosanjh when questioned about the ads and specifically the military ad said he had viewed them and.....

"These are not negative ads, they are factual and about values..."

He went on to say that PMPM was aware of the ads and had approved of them......

"He's the leader of the party. These are Liberal ads about facts and values..."

Meanwhile John (man did that fat little fella ever bitch slap me) Duffy has a different take....

"This is not an ad the Liberal Party is running and it can't be called that"

PMPM steps to the microphone to clarify the situation.....

"All political parties have ads that are not played. This was one that was not played."

This brings to mind some questions.

When is an ad not an ad???

When said ads have been played, have they really??

What is the definition of ad??

What is the definition of played???

What are facts and values???

Did PMPM recieve strategy advice from his buddy Bill Clinton at the Montreal Environmental Summitt ala "I did not have sex with that

This is the Canada I would choose, and it's a damn sight short of Pinochet's Chile' or Hitlers Germany as PMPM would have us beleive the Conservatives have in mind. Or is he perhaps projecting his own agenda... makes you think when you remember the gun registry thing and the close association with known Criminals etc.

Sorry to go a little off topic here but who had the primary sources on that court case that happened last May or so abouts: regarding one of Paul Martin's CSL ships getting halted in Vancouver Harbour, after a search revealed a smugglers hold containing shipping containers full of cocaine. PS I know at the time there was a publication ban on the incedent but rumours had gotten out and this seems to have been the gist of them. I've been speaking to some very interested parties who would like confirmable sources to use.

What a firestorm!-and rightly so.
I watched the debate in French and saw Mike Duffy give it to John (smirk face) Duffy. I could not believe my ears and eyes, but enjoyed it immensely.
Kate has the issue nailed with her first post on this issue.
So glad to see our military posting. We owe you our lives and you get very little recognition for what you do to protect us and fight for our way of life anywhere in the world and in the cities of our country when you are needed.
The libs are so used to lying they just can't stop and think that this will work again.
Fortunately for us the blogs are making a difference and the people of this country are finally paying attention.
The libs deserve to go down and they are going down HARD.
As for 'all the parties do it' ..NO they don't nor should it ever be condoned.
The Conservatives should and I think will get a majority government, from which mandate they will govern honestly and sincerely. They deserve that mandate after the yoeman's work they have done in parliament these last 17 months. What a frustrating exercise that had to have been.
And to hear Layton chirping inanely about 'getting into bed with the libs'?? After our interest rates shot up on that 'deal' he made with Martin to prop up crime and corruption??
I sure do not want to see Layton as official opposition. I would much rather see the Bloc if it comes to that and it would not be the first time the Bloc formed the official opposition.
Gilles may be Bloc but he is an honest man. Much more than I can say about Layton. He'd get in bed with the devil if it would advance his agenda one iota.
With Martin's announcement last night that he intends to dismantle the NWC and now these ads... they deserve to be obliterated and in the wilderness for a very long time!

It is absolutely insulting that Martin would demonize our Armed Forces in any light, but especially in a last gasp attempt to save his own pathetic political career.

What a mind blowing insult to all service men and women and to every citizen of this nation which they have volunteered to protect with their very lives.

I thought the notwithstanding clause was as low as it was going to go but it is abundatly clear I have afforded them far too much credit in having one last shred of decency.

I want to weep for my nation that this, the Liberal Party of Canada under Paul Martin, has been the best we have been able to offer ourselves and one another for so many years.

St. Crispen's Day Speech
Shakespeare's HENRY V
C. 1599

Excerpt:

We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. >>

In the latest round of Liberal attack ads there is one which is nothing more than an insult to the proud men and women of the Canadian Forces.

The ad which talks about the Conservative plan to place military units closer to major cities, insinuates that the Canadian public should fear their very own military. The ad is designed to attack the conservative plan but is nothing less than an affront to every single man and woman who has ever served this country.

The point of this blatant Liberal smear appears to be that the Canadian military can not be trusted, that Canadian Soldiers, Sailors and Air Force personnel are jack-booted, sub-human slime that must be kept, at all costs, from the company of respectable civilians. Do the Liberals honestly believe that average Canadians have something to fear from their Canadian Forces?

The government of this country owes the people of its armed forces a debt of gratitude, not insults and slander. These Canadians which Mr. Martin and his Liberal Party have seen fit to vilify are the same people who traveled thousands of miles to shore up the Red River. They left their own loved ones without power and heat in Petawawa during the Ice Storm to provide aid and comfort to average citizens in Ottawa. They regularly leave their families for months at a time in the service of peace at the request of the same government which now insults them.

The serving members of the Canadian Forces both Regular and Reserve are the inheritors of a proud history of self sacrifice. We serve this nation both at home and abroad without regret, without hesitation and sometimes without recognition. It is this ad’s betrayal of our legacy of service which makes the implicit threat of it so revolting, so demeaning and so disheartening.

This ad is a nauseating attack on the pride, dedication, compassion and integrity of all who have ever worn the uniform of this great nation.

Warrant Officer Martin Gasser,
Petawawa Ontario.

I saw the now imfamous ad last night and almost went ballistic. I also added a comment last night but it must have gotten lost in cyberspace.

Now that I am a bit calmer I would like to say to those arogant *ssholes... awe, never mind. It would probably go right over their pin heads.

I too, am a retired airman with 23+ years dedicated to Queen and country. Besides being able to tote a rifle (like all military personnel are trained and expected to be able to), I have helped evacuate northern Manitoban communities from forest fires, spent countless hours looking out aircraft windows, looking for lost/downed aircraft. I've helped clean up after tornados in Barrie and even searched for a lost north pole explorer up at the pointy top of Canada.

While serving, I have lived with my family in Port Arthur, Comox, Borden, Winnipeg, Moose Jaw, Edmonton, Yellowknife, Calgary, ... you get the idea. Mr Prime Minister, these are all Canadian cities and all of them had a military presence and all have added positively to the social and economic fabric of their communities.

The Liberals have to go and now. To let them back in would only justify their criminal like behavior. And with regards to the Duffy v Duffy b*tch slap: Way to go Doughboy!

AdScam Martin's War on Canadians$

US to Cover Canadian Soldiers in Afghanistan
Josh Pringle
Wednesday, January 11, 2006 6:19 AM

The United States will provide air cover to Canadian soldiers heading to Afghanistan next month.

Reports suggest the military scrapped a plan to send Canadian CF-18's to Afghanistan at the 11th hour.

The National Post says the high cost of sending the fighter jets to Afghanistan and logistics are the reason for the cancellation of the plan. >>>

Ujjal has an interest in seeing Paul Martin go down in flames. He's revered by the Indo-Canadian community here in Vancouver. When, as NDP Premier several years ago, he took a 'team Canada' entourage to his native village in India, he was described as being the Prime Minister of Canada, and said nothing to correct those who introduced him that way. Much merriment among the press travelling on that junket. Now, who would you prefer as the new Liberal leader, Joe Volpe or Ujjie-Goojie? And Brian Tobin has that tan that makes him look like George Hamilton. Glad I've got a REAL leader to vote for.

Every single Canadian that relish's there freedom should be outraged by this arrogance & slander. As iam sure many Canadian's have family buried oversea's as I do should be outraged that their family gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom just to hear this kind of nonsense. This is an insult to every armed forces personal today that VOLUNTEERED in today's forces, & this is an outrageous insult to every single new Canadian that was persecuted & escaped regimes around the world. We cannot know what these people sacrificed to escape & come to freedom only to leave many a family member behind.

THE ATTACK...well the Military has its orders and will always follow them..The political view is not a question...but the TACTIC is..When has any party done any outstanding thing for the Military. The public sector has more rights..more benefits..they have rights to EI and the military does not! But the military pay big $$ for them anyhow...Not a one political party, had addressed these. I do not agree with the tactic of the "Soldiers in the city" but then again...what are the parties doing about Gangs, police forces or even Govt officials who are been investigated...hmmmm by their own police force who gets more benefits than the military...and dont forget about Base closures which have happened during the past 10-20 years...These closures have taken out Tons of monies from the local economies and put some in the welfare stream.
Come on....you know whos vote YOU wont Get with this type af action..

I'll keep saying it until every person in this country understands it. When an ad says "Authorized by the Registered Agent for the Liberal Party of Canada", it means that the ad was "authorized".

There is no taking it back.

It was APPROVED by the Liberals.

This is the age of the internet. If you release something online, it is as good as releasing it on TV. There is no distinction. The Liberals DID release, for all the stuttering ignorance they are displaying now.

They made their bed. They can sleep in it.

Makes all 13 years of liberal wreath laying ceremonies and services for our military personel who fought and died for our country seem kind of illigitimate.

A Canadian Forces Base. With soldiers and airmen. Jobs for civilians on that base. real jobs. More kids in our schools. Now the housing is empty. the base is almost a ghost town. Oh for the good old days.

Posted by: Alex at January 11, 2006 10:35 AM

Nothing to add that hasn't been said already, but I note the Liberal website now only has 4 of the original 12 attack ads. Did they backfire quicker than anyone expected? CTV still has all 12 on their website, and by default it plays the 'pulled' ad when you open the link 'Liberal TV ads'. Free airtime for the Liberals there; I hope they appreciate it. I do think that ad should have as wide a circulation as possible.

Posted by: Clive at January 11, 2006 10:53 AM

I work with Jaymeister and we see the ads before I would suggest anyone outside the Liberal Party. Of course we cannot and will not comment on them until they are released...suffice to say that when we were first viewing them there were four or five of us...and all of us regardless of political stripe were laughing and mocking them. I am the yang to Jay's ying and am a Conservative. However, I do hope that Jack Layton does well and a) throws the Liberals far out into the wilderness and b) reinvigorates and purifies Liberalism in Canada (a necessary evil :P); and with his moves to the centre during this election he may even surplant the Liberals as the true voice of Liberalism in Canada, much the same way Harper is becoming the voice of federalism in Quebec.
Can't wait till the final batch of Liberal ads. Focus groups and internal polling will find out which of the twelve ads will stick (there is a reason there are so many...it shows that they have no idea where to attack), and the final batch of ads with zero in on those that show traction. It's weak, but that's what is going to happen.

Posted by: northbaytrapper at January 11, 2006 10:54 AM

So, in light of:

The "soldiers-with-guns-bad" ad, the "gun-registry-at-any-cost" fiasco, the ridiculous "gun-bans", the "no-guns-for-border-guards" foolishness, even the UN "small arms" crap, maybe look at it this way:

When a politician has arranged the system to destroy checks and balances, when all real power comes from his office, when the country can be kept divided to weaken any opposition, when lying is accepted as normal, when even the media can be kept on-side, what does that politician really have left to fear?

An enraged citizen with a gun...

Just a thought.

Thank God, our military can now be rebuilt - if that money really is in the till.

After visiting the world war one and two cemeteries this past year, I can imagine there is a sense of peace over there as the fellows who gave their lives for their country, their Canada, can again rest assured that it will be saved.

The Libs had to implode, and we can be grateful to them for doing so. They weren't pushed onto the sword, they stumbled and fell. Thank you, Paulie.

Posted by: gellen at January 11, 2006 11:27 AM

Jack Bensimon and Peter Bern of Bensimon Bern, a Toronto ad agency, did the ads. They are the same people who work for McGuinty's Ontario Liberals. They were also involved in an ad scandal that surfaced this past summer. They we're given at least 7 million dollars worth of untendered government business for helping McGuinty win. Smacks of the sponsorship scandal. Martin can't help himself - he's a pathological criminal.

Posted by: Irwin Daisy at January 11, 2006 11:27 AM


The Liberals used the media to deliberately send out a trial balloon...regarding the ad about our soldiers.

I have a story to tell...
Christmas 1998...My husband and I were living in Winnipeg and our condo was behind the Princess Patricia Army Barracks.

I drove past the main entrance and saw that a platform ...about 10-15 feet high had been erected.

There were two soldiers on the top waving at the passers-by and another soldier was on the ground with a bucket collecting money from the cars that were going by.

I stopped and put in my little $20 dollars.
I asked him who he was collecting for...

He said...and I will NEVER forget it...
We are collecting this money so that our children on this base can have toys and a good Christmas because we have poor families in our military here.

For too long the Liberals have prostituted the media to get the message out.

My husband and I were shocked when we saw this ad on CTV tonight.

Paul Martin said at the beginning of this election that he wanted this campaign to be one of ideas...

ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!...

As a teenager in the 1950's, in Oklahoma, I belonged to the Ground Observer Corps, a United States Air Force sponsored organization whose purpose was to track Soviet bombers if they came over the North Pole to attack us. (At the time I didn't stop to think that if they got as far as Oklahoma we were well and truly screwed). Perhaps because I knew some of the history of WWII, I remember feeling reassured that it was Canadians who were holding the fort with us up north. Despite all the current political BS, I believe the true Canadian character remains alive and well.

Nothing left to add here except my heartfelt gratitude to the brave men and women of the Canadian Forces.
My grandfather was in the service during WW2, he was lucky to have survived, while recuperating in hospital from losing his left leg, he somehow wooed the heart of my Nanny, whom at the time was a not only a nurse but a Catholic Nun.
She left the convent married and married my Grandfather.
He passed away when my mother was 12 yrs old of a heart attack.
My Nanny, instilled in her children and her grandchildren, that we must always be grateful for the sacrifices of our people in military, not just on November 11th, but every single day that we live and breathe.

Given the exceptionally poor treatment extended by the Liberals to our brave men and women of the CF's, the latest attack ad while reprehensible and in true Liberal fashion, should not be all that surprising.
Just lends to how exasperated and desperate they have become this election.

Shame unto the Liberals...oh wait I forgot, they no not the meaning of "shame".

Prime Minister Paul Martin is promoting a kind of hypnosis by proposing of a world-wide ban on spaceweapons.
Essential of Clinical Hypnosis from Prime Minister of Canada for teaching in the school of the upcoming election is a matter for thinking.

The Prime Minister and his Liberals are those persons in Canada, who have created the poorest neighbourhoods,addication, poverty and racia tensions throughout Canada.

He and his Liberals have deported thousands scientists and academic immigrants into the torture's chambers of GULAG of unemployment, poverty, humiliation, slavery and the gradual deaths in Canada.

He and his friends are those businessmen who shared contacts with Saddam Hussein, dictator of Iraq.

A South Korean businessman ( former spy of secret service), Mr. Tongsun Park, who was arrested last week in USA. transferred Saddam's money to Cordex Petroleum Inc in Alberta, where Paul Martin and his mentor had shares.

I am a scientis with a PhD degree in bionedical sciences from School of Medicine in Germany.

Dear Liberal Candidate, Mr. Richard Mahoney

Federal Justice Minister Irwin Cotler said that Mr. Irwing Layton, who suffered and died from Alzheimer disease was long time struggling against injustice in Canada.

At his funeral minister Irwin Cotler said: Mr. Irwing Layton felt the injustice around him.

I also have experience the injustice around me in Canada.

Personally, I am not irritated by Paul Martin's insistence that his defeinition of " Values" set him apart other people in the politics; Ia'm very saddened why this prime minister and his Liberals who are causing harms and tortures on the lives of people are talking about " Values" ?

What are values for Paul Martin and his Liberals when the lives are not values for them?

What are values in Constitution of Canada when Parliament has been emptied from its power; Prime Minister is playing with the ball of the notwithstanding clause?

Let Paul Martin and his Liberals, who have cultivated the needles in their brains, play with the notwithstanding clause as long as they can; they can open the wounds with Quebec's province again in the similar ways as they are playing and opening the wounds with with thousands of scientists and academic immigrants in GULAG of unemployment and poverty in Canada.

If Mr. Richard Mahoney likes this system of Canada where in this system his old friend Mr. Martin can govern as a dictator, a person who is not elected for PM by direct vote of people, I let to Mr. Mahonet to enjoy withnthis system.


You are Ottawa Centre Liberal candidate. Your private work at Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP and your helps for private satellite radio company are not my subjects. To be registered as a lobbyist for any firm, is the duty of the related authorities. You are claiming that you have assisted and now you are assisting refugees and Canadian immigrants in their integration into Western and Canadian society.

Are you really honest Mr. Mahoney?

Would you please inform me about your evidences?

How about the Transportation's fees for the poorest refugees, who have been brought to Canada?

Do you know the GESTAPO of Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration ( Collection Agency) in Ottawa charges the poorest conventioal refugees who have no jobs, no foods to the last cents of their tickets's loans during Christmas, when you are enjoying with your family?

Why the Leaders are silent due this issue?

Why tikcet's money for the poorest refugees when they have no jobs, no foods, no clothes, no shoes in the cold winter of Canada? Why in Christmas, instead of helping torturing of them with exorbitant pressures from GESTAPO of Collection Agency of Immigration?

Why keeping silence? Are you humans? No helps to Africa, no helps to Asia, no helps to the refugees in Canada? Only slavery and humiliation of these refugees? Do you like to slave these refugees?

Do you know that trasportation of these conventional refugees in Europe are and must not be charged ? What have you done in Canada for elimination of the visible hands of Gestapo of Collection agency from the lives of the poorest people?

How about the child poverty rate in Canada? over 15 per cent? Is taling and talking enough?

How about the sociall programs? After cutting of 22 per cent in 1995, has government no intention instead of cutting tax for big corporations in Bay Street, increasing of budget for social programs?

How about the sufficient budget for seniors? How about functional health care system?

How long pumping money into the unfunctional and corrupt immigration administration without getting results?

The ground of this immigration's swimming pool has hundreds holes; they don't keep any water; no matter how much budget you are pouring into this pool; this swimmimg pool will not function as long as the holes exist and are not fixed.


Through a decade of budgets surpluses, Paul Martin never tried to be a human for humanity and people; he never announces any plan to remove all miseries of poor people; he never tried to use theses surpluses for elimination of poverty and crimes in Canada.

All these people who are killed on the streets of cities in Canada are killed by Paul Martin and his policies since 1993 as he did cut all budgets for social programs and insurances. The mother of gangs is poverty; Paul Martin created poverty by pumping money into the pockets of Bay Street's big corporations; he did cut the tax for rich people and deprived the poor people from their lives.


When Prime Minister Paul Martin appointes Supreme Court judges, chooses the cabinet, dominates caucus and all MPs and Ministers must be the toiletpapers-servicemen for his washroom in Ottawa, do you believe you have democracy in Canada? Are you kidding?


Have you ever demonstrated you sincerity and honesty for defending of people's rights while you are introducing yourself as the candidate?

You are a dedicated Liberal for many years; there is no doubt about it.

As a friend of Paul Martin and as a young man, I know, you led the Young Liberals of Canada.

Mr. John Napier Turner who transported over 500 people as a mission to Ukrain for the Orange Revolution in Ukrain on December 2004, while thousands of scientists and academic immigrants were in the torture's chambers of GULAG
Paul Martin appointed you as his executive assitant after you helped him for his leadership in 1990.

Have you ever asked from Mr. John Turner, why he and his Liberals are silent to the victims of GULAG of Liberals in Canada? Is he part of official of this GULAG? If he is an official for GULAG, how can he demonstrate to people of Canada he and his Liberals have not wasted the taxpayers's money to Ukrain on December 2004?

I am not interested in any more about the presidency of the Ontario Liberal Party, after the Ontario's Vice-President Mr. Mike Kalender comapred the wife of Jack Layton with a chow chow dog!

It's a big shame for the party.

Why don't you ask from the Federal Auditor General in Ottawa Mme Sheila Fraser and Mme Maria Barrados, why they ignored the request of Minister of Heritage, Mme Sheila Copps for waste of taxpaer's money in Option Canada in Quebec in 1996-1997?

Mme Sheial Fraser and Mme Maria Barrados must clarify abou their ignorings due to this important issue.

We know all failures and discrimnatory behaviors of Dr. Maria Barrados, who is t President of Public Service Commission to people from visible minorities, are neglected by Mme Sheila Fraser because she was her deputy before to become President of PSC.

Dr. Maria Barrados has created a South African's apartheid system in PSC; she playes with the lives of scientists and academic immigrants as she is playing with balls.


Why don't you ask the court of Canada, why Liza Frula, Lucienne Billard, Pierre Pettigrew and others who were involved in the affair of Option Canada, must be abandoned fromm any candidacy to the House of Commons?

Why don't you ask the court of Canada about the penealties for those who ignored or involved in Option Canada's scandal?

Don't you want to be an honest MP?

MP must be honest but not lobbyist!

Over 2 years of my life have been ruined and terrorized by Prime Minister Paul Martin and his Liberals in Canada.

They have ignored my voice; they behaved racists and brutal to my voice for justice.

They ruined my professional career in Canada.

No one can experinece in the world, after 2 years, no one in the government of Canada and in the House of Commons is ready to listen to the voice of a human, a scientist, whose life has been terrorized in Canada.

The liberals ruined me and my life; I have the recognized PhD and certificates in Canada, but I am ignored.

Why a scientist with the recognized credentials in Canada must be terrorized by government of Martin?

The criminality against humans and humanity has no limits when the members of the Liberal Party of Canada are blind for seeing the bitterness of this tragedy in Canada.

Paul Martin and his Liberals are falling soon on Janaury 23, 2006; there is no doubt about it.

I ask them again for listening of the voices of people.

I ask them for being humans and for humans.

How long blind and deaf?

How long ignoring of people and their vloices?

Why not learning from humanity?

I am very diasppointed.

They don't care what I am writing; they are thinking how soon they can beginn the lobbying for firms; how soon they can collect more money!

These Liberals are emptied from humanity; they are terrorizing the justice; they are terrorizing humanity; they are terrorizing freedom; and they are terorzing the Charter of Rights.

Their religion is lobbying for firms.
Their God is lobbying for Bay Street's big corporations.

And we are not forgetting this reality that Mr. Martin, his Chief of Staff and Ralph Goodale were and are darlings of Bay Strret's big corporations.

Forget about the income-trusts scandal and other scandals, think about their future's scandfals if they win this election.

They are breathing in scandals and with scandals.

And we are terrorized as humans because we are against their vicious policies against the lives of people.

I am very disappointed.

I thank you in advance for your attention.


Sincerely yours,
A. Diba, PhD

Have you ever thought how Paul Martin's government can terrorize scientists who are criticizing his failures?

Prime Minister Paul Martin and his Liberals are not exonerated from their hostilities against our lives while they are threatening us.

On Thu, 20 Oct 2005 11:26:54 -0400,a detective in Ottawa Police,Paul McIntyer who works under the senior officer, Inspector John Gardiner, who oversees him, insulted me in collaboration with Finance Minister Ralph Goodale and other Liberals in government.

Instead of killing me physically, in their own fasions with copying of GULAG, they terrorized my personality. They installed a police officer for insulting me in accordance with prescription of Josef Stalin and other dicatators.

Please look at the form of terrorim of the scientists:
Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2005 11:26:54 -0400

" My name is Det. Paul McIntyre. I work for the Ottawa Police Mental Health Unit. An e-mail that you sent to the Department of Finance
yesterdayhas sparked concern for your well being. I want you to know if you are experiencing any suicidal thoughts there are people you can talk to. Our city offers a 24hr/7day a week Mental Health Crisis Line 722-6914. If you need someone to talk to I recommend calling this number. If your life
is in jeopardy and you require immediate assistance do not hesitate to call
9-11. If there is anything else our service can offer let me know.


I was really shocked! How can the Paul Martin's government in the 21st century under umbreall of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms behave such destructive and corrupt as Josef Stalin behaved?

I asked some officers for the investigation of this insult
The officer Peter Crosby wrote me:
Hello Mr Diba,

I have asked Inspector John Gardiner, the Senior Officer who oversees Det McIntyre's work unit, to review the issue that you have raised and on behalf of the Ottawa Police Service he will respond to your concern.

Peter Crosby
Supt
Criminal Invest Services Division
The other officer in Ottawa, Mr. Tim Armour responded me:
I have forwarded your email to Inspector John Gardiner, of our Criminal Investigation Section.... gardinerj@ottawapolice.ca.... (613) 236-1222 ext 5591.

Tim Armour
A/Supt

Are we humans in Canada?
Do we have any rights for defending of ourselves in Canada?

Do we have any independent judiciary system for this insult?

Do we have democracy?

Are ouver lives Values for defending?

I am very disappointed.

Sincerely yours,.
