That there is foreign interference in anyone’s politics is not surprising. Since Haiti gave the boot to French sovereignty the great pioneer nation of dispersed Africans has not had a year of release. The people’s pleasure has been intercepted by the United States and God knows who else. Every nation has secrets, some of which, like Haiti’s, have to do with survival. Those people, especially politicians, who want a public airing of covert affairs that make their nation vulnerable are nothing but provocateurs and wannabe patriots and insurrection suspects. I have some ideas about who wants Canada’s secrets aired in public.
Trust with national interest is light years away from Conservative
The national interest will put people first, not corporations, large or small. It is not enough to have federal politicians clamouring for a public inquiry, now Ontario’s premier is making his case for more details of foreign interference in Canada’s elections, now that, (you guessed it) the finger has been pointed at provincial government officials from Premier Ford’s party. Geez, man, has the Ford government, while deciding the size of Toronto’s government, offers no insight into the rising occurrences of homicide.
Smash up things then come in like saviours
Is there a push to create an image of the Ford government fighting crime and anything else? It looks that way and scoffing and snickering at CSIS holding back secrets might work for Ford fiddlers and Pollievre pilferers. It says much more about Ford refusing to say what he knows about the occupation of the national capital by admitted allies and friends of Conservative members of Canada’s legislatures. Conservatives have been tilting Canada towards “money talks” and the new right wing black hole. Since the 1970s they have been trying to make the difference between Canada and the United States seem inconsequential. For Ford and the Bloc Quebecois the line between federal and provincial powers and interests is sometimes thick and other times nonexistent. I think Canadians know the difference between a fox in the henhouse and a German shepherd guarding a flock of sheep. They’re no saviours.
