Canada's Patronage King Stephen Harper

"We don't support any Senate appointments."
(Stephen Harper, Winnipeg Free Press, January 29, 1996)

"Despite the fine work of many individual Senators, the Upper House remains a dumping ground for the favoured cronies of the Prime Minister."
(Stephen Harper Leadership Website, January 15, 2004)

"In the 21st century, those who want to sit in the parliament of a democratic state should have a mandate from the people."
(Stephen Harper, February 7, 2006)

"A conservative government will not appoint to the senate anyone who does not have a mandate from the people."
(Conservative Party website during 2006 election)

"As everyone in this room knows, it has become a right of passage for aspiring leaders and prime ministers to promise Senate reform - on their way to the top - but once they are elected, Senate reform quickly falls to the bottom of the Government's agenda. Nothing ever gets done."
(Stephen Harper, Speech on Senate Reform before Senate Committee, September 7, 2006)

"I don't plan to appoint senators; that's not my intention."
(Stephen Harper, Cornwall Standard-Freeholder, January 14, 2006)

"Stephen Harper will cease patronage appointments to the Senate. Only candidates elected by the people will be named to the Upper House."
(Stephen Harper Leadership Website, January 15, 2004)

"I challenge Mr. Martin, once he becomes Prime Minister, to turn a page on the past, and appoint only elected Senators to the Upper House."
(Stephen Harper, Canadian Alliance Press Release, July 4, 2003)

"Canadians from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia remain ashamed of Canada`s senior legislative body. They are ashamed the Prime Minister continues the disgraceful, undemocratic appointment of undemocratic Liberals to the undemocratic Senate to pass all too often undemocratic legislation."
(Stephen Harper, Hansard, March 7, 1996)

"Racist" video causes furor

Native leaders and band members of a London-area First Nation are fuming over what some describe as a racist Internet video taken at a local pow-wow that mocks native people, the obese, the disabled and others.
Despite the outrage, the video remained on YouTube yesterday afternoon.
An official with the Munsee-Delaware First Nation says the band's leaders have met with police and they are exploring what other action they can take.
"People are pretty upset," said Paul Henry, Munsee-Delaware band administrator.
"It puts people in a bad light -- making fun of them -- and the band council is looking into it. We're not going to let this go away. We're exploring ways to deal with it."

The YouTube video was made during a Munsee-Delaware pow-pow July 4 and was videotaped by a person who identifies himself as Scared White Guy.
It is posted under the profile name 'Campterror.'
Addendun : the person who made the video has now made it "Private" Guess he's scared now. His moniker was "Scared White Guy" after all

The Munsee-Delaware First Nation might want to talk this guy who now says he is half Cherokee
My comment to this moron is this.T


The hate you possess does more harm to the
vessel that it contains
than to the object it is directed to
I pity you
