NDP MP advocated for Newfoundland separation

Jack’s pack of new MPs are the gift that will keep on giving for Stephen Harper and the Conservatives over the next 4 years.

We now learn that NDP MP Ryan Cleary had this to say about Newfoundland leaving Canada:

“I don’t want to seem ungrateful, but now that we’re rolling in the cash it may be time to consider breaking away from the country of Canada”

Nice…all good to stay when you’re a have-not province and need transfer payments but as soon as the money starts rolling in from oil, see ya later Canada.

Cleary says that’s when he was young and dumb though:

“There have been points when I was younger, when I was gung-ho in terms of separation”

Younger as in 3 years ago younger. That separatism statement was made in May 2008 when he was 41 years old.

Cleary also had some candid thoughts on his now leader:

The NDP is “a party that wouldn’t win an election if Jackie Layton was given a 100-seat head start.” 

And it’s only going to get worse for Smilin’ Jack. (see here)

Top Liberal wants party’s name dropped

In an admission that being a Liberal is now toxic to the voters here in BC, MLA Colin Hansen wants the name changed “to consider a brand that reflects the party’s coalition of support among those who vote Tory and Liberal federally” (see here)

A nice way of saying it’s no fun being a Liberal politician any more. So much for being a proud Liberal in Canada nowadays.

7 Native MPs elected. Oh and BTW media, 5 are Conservatives

The incredibly great news of the number of Natives elected as Conservative MPs is another story that the Ottawa Press Gallery and Nazi name-calling lefties don’t want too many people knowing about.

The meme that the Conservative Party is full of bigots and racists has been a common theme over the years which has now been destroyed with 5 out of the 7 Native MPs elected sitting on the government side of the House (the other 2 are NDP). Of course the media have mostly been silent about it except for this article in the National Post here.

Finally, the average Native reserve resident will be getting a voice in Ottawa that isn’t filtered by the self-serving chiefs through the Assembly of First Nations and their media friends.
