The Globe and Mail is never one to refute Harper’s faux crises. Rather the Globe is Harper’s main promulgator of faux crises:
Harper's Income Trust promise: Broken, based on the faux crisis called tax leakage from BCE/Telus......the Globe had a field day misreporting on that fantasy notion.....cost their readers $35 billion (former readers that is)....why did the Globe not report on the definitive work by Dennis Bruce.....just the numbers produced by the grossly conflicted Jack Mintz? Why did the Globe not report on the fact that neither BCE nor Telus were taxable at the time of the faux crisis.....or on the massive loss of taxes from BCE’s LBO relative to an income trust?
Why did the Globe not report on the Catalyst Proposal and thereby aided BCE’s breaking of disclosure rules for bid circulars? Could it be that the Globe’s owners, BCE and Teachers’ are the real news content editors at the Globe? Here’s an even tougher question. Is today Tuesday?
Harper's Fixed Election date promise: About to be broken, based on the faux crisis called dysfunctional parliament......has the Globe reported on the word by word content of Harper’s 200 page manual of how to obstruct Parliament that is in Don Martin’s possession, which would assist Canadians in understanding just who is responsible for making Parliament dysfunctional......since we already know who is making journalism dysfunctional in Canada;
Harper ups ante on election ultimatum
PM eyes triggering snap campaign unless Dion agrees to meet before Sept. 8; Justice Minister vows not to reopen abortion debate
With a report from The Canadian Press
August 26, 2008
OTTAWA -- The rush for a snap election is quickening as senior Conservatives indicated that Prime Minister Stephen Harper might not wait to meet Stéphane Dion before calling a vote if the Liberal Leader does not agree to talks next week.
That could set the stage for a campaign triggered next week, with some Conservatives circling Sept. 5 as the most likely date.
Mr. Harper indicated last week he wanted crisis-atmosphere meetings with opposition leaders within a few weeks before deciding whether to call an election, but that has led to a cat-and-mouse game over the timing of the tête-à-têtes.
