So the Harpocrites want to introduce another American innovation into Canada, the Three Strikes law. Which has not reduced crime but increased the Prison Industrial complex in the U.S.
Those who would pass such laws should have to abide by them.
"Why did the prime minister make misleading statements about Conservative party donations and possible illegal fundraising practices that the parliamentary secretary cannot possibly defend in the House?" asked Liberal Leader Bill Graham. The controversy over the fundraising rules stems from the 2005 Conservative party convention. This spring, the party revealed it had not declared delegate convention fees as political donations as other parties do, defending the omission by saying the convention did not make a profit.
Also Wednesday, the Tories were asked to respond to charges the party is favouring former insiders who are now lobbying government. A member of the team that helped Harper make the transition into government was later given a contract to do public relations work on the Accountability Act. A report said she submitted a bill for $13,462.
Opposition politicians were also fired up over revelations that the name of a reporter who was seeking information under the Access to Information Act was divulged to Harper's office.
