The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

Cadman Fails the Test of Integrity, Kilgore Passes. It’s up to Average Canadians to Clean Up Ottawa

Sadly, today we woke in a nation governed by an quasi-constitutionally political regime…one which has now bribed and grafted its way out of defeat, yet one that remains to sit in defiance of convention and constitutional propriety… that hands out judgeships and ministry seats as a matter of vulgar patronage.

I had pleaded with Mr. Cadman to do what was right for Canada…to vote with his conscience and not his local constituency ( who must be severely under-educated on the issue at hand to hold such an opinion…perhaps Mr. Cadman failed then there too…it is his duty to educate his constituency in the issues at hand so they can make an informed decision). Mr. Cadman failed the test as a responsible Canadian in voting to prop up a grafting, bribe-oriented, government that was sitting in defiance of non confidence. Mr. Kilgore surprised me in voting responsibly to defeat this corrupt Martin regime ( I have new respect for him as he did the right thing when he left the liberals…he sat as an independent rather than go trolling for a seat with the CPC)

I hear Canadians dismiss this as “that’s the game” or “ well what do you expect?”…both justifications cause me great sorrow as a Canadian and a citizen. Bought votes, public trust and conflict of interest scandals, rigged votes, patronage judicial appointments and dismissal of constitutional convention were the hallmark of this Martin government. The sadder truth is that this was rewarded or rationalized.

Today, I want every Canadian who IS a Canadian to stand up for representative democracy and good government…..flood the streets in protest. Protest of the devolved state of affairs in Ottawa parliament. A protest and revolt against corruption, vote buying, bribery and routine breach of public trust. Protest against those “unCanadian” sectarian/parochial catamites that accept this as “normal politics”.

Let’s all set ourselves one task to accomplish ( on this national holiday weekend that the majority of “Canadians” have no historic knowledge of). Let’s promise to do one small, individual act of civil responsibility towards restoring our nation’s confederal and government health.

It can be as bold as taking to the streets or parliament hill with a sign that states your disgust with sleazy unethical government or it can be as seemingly benign as writing your first letter to your MP or paper to voice your outrage with scandals, bribes and influence pedaling. I don’t care what your partisan leanings are…re-establishing a clean responsible government transcends all partisan lines.


This is no longer a wish, this is a priority. Partisan/regional politics and crass power mongering in the past decade have brought Canada’s democracy to the brink. Unaccountable federal political cabals have institutionalized breach of public trust, graft in parliamentary voting and threatens to propel confederal fractionalization.

I extend a rallying call to all Canadians of all partisan persuasions : “ Let’s clean up our federal government and our confederal system….Let’s make it accountable, open, democratic and regionally functional in equality. Lets do it with protest and public pressure….Let’s DEMAND a clean up. It’s time Canadian citizens took control of this process because we can no longer trust politicians to do it for us.

What is your reference to "IT" not going well? What? Personal integrity and citizen initiative ?

There is no "day" fro this should be a 365day pressue movement until we see accountability back in government.

Seems some Canadians give up too easily....another indication that the modern crop of "Canadian" hasn't the sand to go the distance...that will only allow the nation to die with a wimper.

Very cryptic your statement about our Free Dominion being shut is certainly a reality with unconstitutionally sitting government.

As for the site, FD was up and running when I went there.

Possibly wishful thinking?

Sorry, perhaps it's just me. The links from Kate and Western Standard don't work for me, so perhaps my server(Shaw)is denying my access. I get a black screen saying 'No forwarding set for'. I can bring up up, but not .org I tried looking for information on the rally, but couldn't find it. Maybe Shaw's license is due at the CRTC, ha

Try here DJ.

FD is running on member's donations ( not guzzling from the public trough like Rabble) and the site is still humiliating ,campus bolsheviks,socialist perverts, hedonist degenerates, liberal narcissists, lefty enebrites, elitist hubris, anti-constitutionalist pseudo intellectuals, relativist moon bats, and anti-American beer-can patriots.

A job well done. All the degenerate socio-political sludge that is destroying our nation can find criticism in either FD or TRF.
