Dean Del Mastro's junk mail

CON MP Dean Del Mastro asks his constituents in today's junk mail flier (above): “Who do you think is on the right track on taxes?"

On the right track? very Freudian.

Is Dean still pursuing that Via train to nowhere?

How is that to be funded if not by taxes? Certainly not by fares. Unless you consider a one way ticket for $396.00 from Peterborough to Whitby-Oshawa to be fair. And that’s only for Conservative class.

He goes on to ask “Will you be tricked into paying Dion’s tax on everything?”

“Tricked” into paying more taxes?........again how very Freudian

He couldn’t be thinking of “trick or treat” could he?

Conjuring up subliminal thoughts of Halloween?

More taxes? Impossible, The Conservatives are honest reliable people, Whose word is their bond.

"When Ralph Goodale tried to tax Income Trusts ... don't forget, don't forget this ...they showed us where they stood. They showed us about their attitudes towards raiding seniors hard earned assets and a Conservative government will never allow either of these parties to get away with that"

Out of respect for Dean's love of all things Manulife Financial as evidenced at the Public Hearings on Income Trusts and out of respect for Manulife's Income Plus product launched immediately after (or was it immediately before?) the crack down on income trusts, that (for reasons they must consider to be clever) features some middle aged guy upside down, I have afforded Dean with similar treatment, after all, Dean was responsible for helping to turn upside down about 2.5 million Canadians' retirement plans with the breaking of the above noted....ahem.....solemn promise. Don't forget. Don't forget this blah blah blah.

When Stephen Harper stood and said that over and over on TV I believed him. I voted for Harper because I looked into his eyes and I believed he meant what he said. Boy was I fooled. Stephen Harper betrayed my trust. He lied to me to buy my vote knowing he would never keep that promise. There was no tax leakage and no accountability as shown by the 18 pages of blacked out evidence. There is no tax fairness when private pension plans and law firms are excluded from the sift tax rules. There is no ethics or morals in a government that lies to the people in order to promote it's hidden agenda. The sooner this band of Lying thugs is kicked out of office the better Canada will be.

Ah, another (amongst millions and millions) of the Conservative propaganda flyers - I mean mail pieces - or "10 per centers" as they are sometimes known, all paid for by Canadian tax payers.

Yes, you and me.

Who do you think is surreptitiously wasting your tax dollars?

Conservatives - Yes, or
- Yes

Conservatives Under Fire For Partisan Leaflets Mailed At Taxpayer Expense


April 17, 2008

OTTAWA - The secretive panel that polices House of Commons rules is taking a look at free MP mail-outs amidst complaints over a blizzard of partisan Conservative flyers blanketing Canadian households.

The Tories are being called out for what is an unprecedented abuse of taxpayer-funded parliamentary services - and the Commons board of internal economy is examining the matter.

At issue are so-called "10-per centers" - black-and-white flyers produced on Commons printers that MPs bulk-mail to their constituents and others beyond their individual ridings.

All federal parties use the practice, but the current Tory campaign is unprecedented in its scope and tone.

At least one recent mail-out in Ottawa clearly appeared to be in breach of the rules governing such flyers.

Critics say the Tory practice is the latest example of a party that pushes every rule to the brink and beyond..

"We've never seen this kind of concerted abuse of the system."

"I'm absolutely outraged at the abuse that's going on on the taxpayers' dime."

The Conservatives appear to be doing mass mailings on a monthly basis.

The sheer volume of Conservative flyers, combined with their highly provocative and patently partisan content, is raising eyebrows.

The return address - postage paid by the government - is CRG Government Caucus Services. CRG stands for Conservative Research Group.

Some say the real goal is Conservative party data mining - obtaining names, addresses and e-mails of return senders who can be put in the party database and approached in future fundraising drives.

One recent mailing in the Ottawa riding of Tory MP John Baird arrived without any MP identified on the flyer, a clear breach of the rules.

One rough estimate put the number at 30 million to 50 million flyers that have gone out this calendar year, at a cost of $8 to $10 million.

Canadians who have complaints about any political flyers can write to both their MP and the board of internal economy.

I am sick & tired of all things Conservative & this is coming from someone who supported the Progressive Conservative Party for over 3 decades.

This present crew has lost sight of all things reasonable & they are liars to boot.

They push every rule of government to the limit as they have done with these flyers paid by you & me---tax payer paid propaganda is not a Progressive way of doing business & must be stopped.

These flyers were meant to be information delivering devices to inform the people about upcoming gov`t programs , new initiatives , etc & not be election campaign postings.

What is being mailed out look like Dan Miles circulars for world domination.

Give me a break -- wasting tax payer dollars like this when nearly a million children in this country go to school daily hungry is a crime.

Dean Del Mastro & the rest of his cronies should be ashamed & embarrassed---as an old PC member , I know I am.
