Then & Now: FEDEV & FEDNOR


“We have in this country a federal government that increasingly is engaged in trying to determine which business, which regions, which industries will succeed, which will not through a whole range of economic development, regional development corporate subsidization programs.” — Stephen Harper


I suppose Harper should be given credit for his “evolving” view of Canada’s economy and the role government plays in it. Doesn’t seem terribly “conservative” though, does it?

    Conservative 2009 /Liberal 2005… I wonder if the Liberals will use Stand Up for Canada in the next election?

    THEN: In the first quarter of 2006 there were 374,000 federal employees.

    NOW: As of the end of the second quarter in 2009, there are 414,000 federal employees; an increase of slightly more than 10%.

    Doesn’t seem terribly “conservative” either, does it?

    Ted: Any idea when the Liberals are going to start up a wiki for all of those “Harper accomplishments.”

    I don’t know why they disappeared the last one. It was useful.

    Only if I need to find out just exactly how Harper likes to be fellated.

  6. Ah, the infamous Crux List of Harper Accomplishments®… What a fount of misleading information, fantastical gullibility, and skewed partisan hackery that unofficial Compendium of Shite is.
