On the list of gripes? The Tories’ handling of the not-exactly-accurate F-35 budget,treatment of environmentalists by the Conservative government, reductions inrefugee health services, immigration program stoppage and the ongoing robocalls investigation, to name some.

Some Canadians are even boycotting Canada Day altogether in protest of our current Prime Minister.

“I’m not celebrating Canada Day this year. Harper’s killed it for me,” the husband of a Vancouver Courier columnist said.

Bill C-38 passed Senate -Budget bill should be called the Lobbyists’ Bill, it’s a gift for oil and gas lobbyists.

“Just in time for the Canada Day long weekend, the Senate ended this session of Parliament by approving the government’s omnibus budget bill — which promptly received royal assent — making changes to the environmental review laws and social assistance programs.

By a vote of 49-31, Bill C-38 passed through the Senate Friday afternoon, with the Tories using their majority to get approval for the government’s budget implementation bill.”

Budget Bill References:

The omnibus Budget Bill C-38, includes among other things:

-Allows livestock that have died due to sickness or injury prior to being slaughterd to be butchered & sold to the public anyway; this will breed inhumane animal conditions.

-Eliminates the national spy agency CSIS watchdog;

-Allows American agents with the DEA and FBI to operate in Canadian territory;

-Moves the age of retirement to age 67, as if age 65 wasn’t old enough;

-Makes it difficult for people to receive EI, and if they do become unemployed, to accept wages as low as 70% of their true potential and in fields that their training is not utilized in;

-Eliminates regulation over freshwater waterways, for the sake of industrial potential (eliminating environmental regulations meant to protect – thus opening the door to major oil pipelines.)

-Eliminates regulation in rare fish habitat.

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yx81rhx_jKo

June 24, 2012- Harper Government secrecy on $5.2 billion in budget cuts could lay groundwork for future economic crisis, Canada’s chief parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page warns.

Harper’s criminal government has kept secret on $5.2 billion in government-wide cuts which could lead to an economic crisis in Canada, says Canada’s chief parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page. Page’s office issued a legal opinion that harper’s conservatives who have not been transparent on budget cuts are
BREAKING THE LAW.

The latest source of contention: Page’s repeated and intensifying attempts to access information about how departments and agencies plan to implement $5.2 billion in cuts set out in the federal budget. Of the 84 departments queried, 64 did not share the requested details. Last week Page’s office issued a legal opinion that those departments and agencies are breaking the law.
