“The notion and the implication that somehow the government on this file is responding to initiatives that originated with corporations is not based on reality”: Self-exonerating closing statement at the Finance Committee Hearings on Income Trusts by Eddie Haskel, Chairman and CEO of Mea Culpa Financial whose motto is “our bottom line dictates your reality”
Eddie Haskell: Shmarmy duplicitous friend of Beaver Cleaver on Leave it to Beaver
Community Outreach Program: Ethnic, religious and racial profiling of voters
I have a fiduciary obligations to Canadians that today's social programs not be funded with tomorrows tax dollars (from RRSPs): But that doesn't stop me from using those very same taxes from yesterday's RRSP contributions that are withdrawn today which provided over $8 billion of tax revenues for fiscal 2007.
Different types of business can’t be taxed differently: Exceptions being, REITs law firms, accounting firms, and any different kind of business that is taxed differently, provided it is owned by a government sponsored pension plan. E.g. Thunder Energy Trust by the Public Sector Pension plan, or Legacy Hotel Income Trust by Caisse de depot etc.
Capital Insertion Rules: Growth restrictions and a secondary measure to kill income trusts (not applicable however if trust in question is opportunistically acquired by foreigners or pension plans)
Leveling the playing field: Taking the stronger team (income trusts) off the field to coddle the status quo and higher cost of capital corporations
Helping Corporations make choices: Taking choices away from investors
Independent Panel: People who are beholding to us, and whose purpose is to validate and promote our hidden agenda to absolve the government of liability and pacify others, all the while subverting the role of elected parliamentarians
Eminent Canadians: See independent panel above
Burka policy: xenophobia induced social intolerance
Transparency: 18 pages of blacked out documents, temporarily made available under the Access to Information Act (overnight lending section)
Accountability: Recall by Finance Department of blacked out documents when it is realized that alleged tax leakage isn’t about the numbers, its about the methodology
Mark Carney: Goldman Sachs Private Client Division (see accountability and transparency above for direct examples of his handiwork)
John Manley: Part time Liberal, full time/full fledged member of US Council on Foreign Relations
Council on Foreign Relations: De facto US State Department/Defence Department/US Treasury Department
Panel on Hollowing Out: Working on a comprehensive how to manual of how to hollow out Canada through additional government initiatives like the income trust tax, which amounts to tax subsidies to foreigners to acquire business undervalued by the government's tax measures.
Insurance Litigator: Ambulance chaser
After dropping out of first year undergraduate studies at U of T, Stephen Harper worked in the oil patch: Mail room clerk at Imperial Oil, (father’s employer)
Tax Fairness Plan: Scheme comprised of gross inequities based on fallacious concepts, also commonly referred to in the vernacular as the “Alms for Manulife Plan”
Stephane Dion is not a leader: Stephane Dion is not a liar
Fish or cut bait: I am presently up in the polls, but don't know how long I can maintain this charade of leadership and suppress my hidden agenda for, so I will act belligerantly in the belief it will help my cause.

Canadian Must Trust: Duck and cover
If you are aware of any other misuses of the English language by the Harper Conservatives whose sole intent is to disguise the sole intent of their government, please forward your examples or post them below in the comments section.
I am hoping that we can at least have a government that is accountable to the proper use of the English language. Any hope that the Harper government would be accountable to Canadians was abandoned when the media abandoned the public in the media's ongoing biased coverage of the income trust scandal, commencing November 1, 2006, with this account by BNN:
The sky is falling, because chicken little says it is
Which was then followed up by BNN’s grossly distorted coverage and editorialized of the Public Hearings on Income Trusts by the Finance Committee. Why else do you think BNN has a broadcast license, if not to mislead and misrepresent the goings on in Parlaimentary Committees. Maybe Brian Mulroney can get CBC to cut back to the studio every time that an opposition member asks a question or Karl Heinz Schreiber tesitifies. Perhaps L. Ian MacDonald can provide color commentary on Mulroney ethics the way Amanda Lang is the great defender of her beloved Mark Carmey’s Tax Fairness Plan (see above for definition).
