Tories rebrand ‘Government of Canada’ as ‘Harper Government’ | Toronto Star

Tories rebrand ‘Government of Canada’ as ‘Harper Government’ | Toronto Star | political shenanigans in Canada | Scoop.it

A directive that went out to public servants says “Government of Canada” in federal communications should be replaced by “Harper Government.”

Annette Lengyel's insight:

We are no longer the "Government of Canada". The Canadian dictator replaced our country's name with his own. It is now the "Government of Harper".  Canada is no place for a dictatorship and he must be unloaded to the bin as soon as possible.  He dictates at our expense and it's time to say NO MORE.

EDITORIAL: Disgraceful treatment of would-be disability pensioners | political shenanigans in Canada | Scoop.it
The Harper government’s failure to deal in a timely, compassionate way with the disability benefit claims of thousands of Canadians is a disgrace.

The Canadian Press reported Monday that some 11,000 people are waiting, some of them for years, to find out whether Ottawa will reverse decisions to deny them Canadian Pension Plan disability benefits.

The Conservatives replaced the Pension Appeals Board and the appeal process for Employment Insurance with the Social Security Tribunal in 2013.

'Obstruction' handbook leaked | Toronto Star

'Obstruction' handbook leaked | Toronto Star | political shenanigans in Canada | Scoop.it
The Harper government is being accused of a Machiavellian plot to wreak parliamentary havoc after a secret Tory handbook on obstructing and manipulating Commons committees was leaked to the press.
Annette Lengyel's insight:

Obstruction handbook to wreak havoc on parliament--how unCanadian, unparliamentary and contemptuous. And explains the Orwellian nature of their shenanigans. Did Karl Rove ghost write this?  It has US Republican-style fingerprints all over it.  This combined with all the other fraud and other illegalities they've committed should be reason enough to shut this government down as a criminal enterprise.
