Coming Home To Roost


The Canadian Press reported yesterday that former Conservative MP Bill Casey wants to run for the Liberals in his old riding:

Former Conservative and Independent MP Bill Casey says he plans to seek the federal Liberal nomination in his Nova Scotia riding of Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley.

Stephen Harper threw Casey out of the Conservative caucus after Casey voted against his government's budget because it altered the terms of the Atlantic Accord, which governed cash transfers  between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland Labrador. Casey said that Harper had betrayed his constitutents and Casey felt it was his duty to speak for them. The Harper spin machine declared Casey persona non grata .

Mr. Casey says his motivation for running is not revenge:

Casey says there are several reasons why he wants to re-enter politics, but primarily he wants to "raise the alarm" about the declining state of the parliamentary system.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming federal election. Mr. Harper has betrayed lots of people on his way to power. Those betrayals are coming home to roost.

Hopefully Owen, they will also come home to roost with electorate. Harper has betrayed at the very least the majority of Canadians, if not all Canadians.

Harper has a long list of enemies, Pam. But I suspect that his list of former friends is just as long. Some people are on both lists.

There was also Harper's election fraud, of his robo-call scam. Sona has been sentenced and no way did he do this on his own. Perhaps when Sona is let out of prison, Harper may give him a cushy overseas job, as he has done for other of his degenerates.

Harper's list of degenerates is as, long as his arm. Some are already in prison, others are on their way.

Harper called Russia and Putin evil Communists and then, sold Canada to Communist China. Seems, Chine is now, financing Putin.

I have no idea why, Harper isn't in prison as a traitor doing acts of treason, for selling Canada to Communist China?

Perhaps Sona -- like Casey -- will come back to haunt the prime minister, Anon.

@ Anon 4:52 Unfortunately we can't get Harper for treason otherwise he would be running extremely scared.


Right now he is just running very scared because he has violated the Canadian Constitution the Canadian Bill of Rights and most importantly The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms that he despises because it hand cuffs him and the elder Trudeau made it so.

He is going to federal court for those violations.

Unfortunately, Mogs, when the court rules against him, he doesn't re-think his policies.
