Remember how things that looked normal somehow narrowed and tightened into a surprise ending.

Careful all you Toryboy bloggers, you might be entering the Twilight Zone of the Avenging Undecided...

Five Characters In Search Of An Exit

A clown, a hobo, a ballet dancer, a bagpipe player and an army major are trapped together in an enormous cylinder. They don't know who they are or how they got there. But when the major tries to escape, they finally learn the truth.

The deceit and deception of Harper know no bounds.

But apparently some Canadians have renounced their 'duty' to forward thinking, informed, political choice.

The rubes have truly been fooled.

No surprise here, as Harper's CONS basically deny the existence of anthropogenic climate change, despite overwhelming scientific evidence.

Hell, they wouldn't even attend a Nobel Prize ceremony for a Canadian earlier this year.

Harper would skip televised debate in French on environmental issues

September 11, 2008

HALIFAX - Prime Minister Stephen Harper could be the only one of five party leaders to balk at participating in a French-language televised debate that would focus solely on the environment.

The Canadian Press has learned the Conservative leader would decline an invitation from a coalition of environmental groups organizing the event.

A source who asked for anonymity said the French-language all-news network LCN has agreed to televise the debate.

The coalition organizing the event, which includes Greenpeace and Quebec-based groups like Equiterre and the Quebeckyoto Coalition, confirmed it has sent invitations by email to the five party leaders and followed up with letters in the mail.

Liberal Leader Stephane Dion, Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe and Green Leader Elizabeth May responded with an affirmative to the invitation.

NDP Leader Jack Layton said he would accept on condition that Stephen Harper be there in person. If that isn't the case, then Outremont MP Thomas Mulcair would attend instead, said Karl Belanger, the NDP's campaign spokesman.

But a Conservative source said Thursday that Harper was only planning to take part in the traditional French and English televised debates already scheduled for Oct. 1 and Oct. 2, organized by a national broadcast consortium.

The source said it would be unlikely that Harper would take part in a debate organized by the environmental groups.

The situation could spark yet another controversy in the current campaign. The Conservatives and the NDP were at first firmly opposed to May's participation in the traditional debates, before finally backing down on their opposition Wednesday.

A refusal by Harper to attend the additional French debate would do little to help frosty relations between environmental groups and the Tories.

Since the prime minister turned his back on the Kyoto Protocol and Environment Minister John Baird was heavily criticized for his performance at UN climate talks in Bali in December 2007, activists have been on the offensive against the government.

Environmental debates in past campaigns have generally been limited to the MPs who handled the file for their respective parties. But with environmental questions playing a key role in the current campaign, the groups were betting that party leaders would welcome the chance for a verbal joust.

Atlantic Mutiny Against Harper Is Ultimately About Integrity

Sat. Sep 13 - 4:46 AM

AS PRIME MINISTER Harper appears to drift towards some sort of victory among the scattered fleets of the opposition parties, he’ll at least be perked up by (among other things) a salutary volley of cannonball from Atlantic Canada, mostly from his own ships.

There’s a message here that will be useful as the campaign, reflecting American politics, opens on a note of image-puffing and evasion of issues. The message is that here in Atlantic Canada, we don’t like characters who pretend to be pure, then come out lying and double-dealing.
