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.

Non Confidence Bid is a vote on Ex-Tory's Integrity


I caught this tid bit from The Post today:

Chuck Cadman is one of three Independent MPs whose
support is crucial to the survival of Paul Martin's government.

OTTAWA -
Independent MP Chuck Cadman is the latest wild card parliamentarian to be wooed
by the Liberal government in its quest to remain in power, but Prime Minister
Paul Martin also risks losing the support of another MP, David Kilgour, over a
military commitment that will be rolled out today for Sudan's Darfur
region.

What gets lost in this story (due to the media 's tendency to score national politics more like some chess or hockey game rather than a solemn matter of national trust) is the lost fact that two of the independents, which hold the power to topple this corrupt regime, started life as principled Conservatives. They were swept up in the western conservative revolution which wanted to put integrity and principle back into Ottawa politics.

Well, Kilgore long fell from grace by abandoning faith in the concept of principled behavior before politics, with his many floor crossings. We can expect Martin to buy him cheap...and cheap the offers are; a promise from a serial liar and promise breaker is not worth the wind to offer it. So Kilgore will whore out for a worthless offer from Martin.

That leaves us with Chuck Cadman being the sole swing vote capable of doing the civilly responsible thing and voting to dissolve a government punctuated by corruption and bribery to maintain power.

Chuck was a 7 year Reform/ Alliance Conservative MP before his riding nomination was swarmed by a competitor with massive instant memberships who voted for the new CPC nominee instead of Chuck.

Chuck secured his Parliamentary seat in the riding running as an independent. He had the trust of the wider voting constituency of the riding which the instant CPC nominee did not.

Chuck has been an honest and democratic rep for his riding. When asked how he will vote in the non confidence vote, he responds refexively with what his constituents want.....but ultimately it is up to him to vote his conscience on the matter. Chuck is sick but has shown his sense of civil duty by risking his own health to make it to the vote.


It is to Chuck Cadman's better sense of national responsibility that I appeal with this plea:

Chuck...please think beyond your own constituency. You are in a unique position of holding the key to toppling the most corrupt government this nation has ever suffered under....or giving them an undeserved reprieve to work more of their unethical bribery and slander on the public to escape their well deserved fate.

It is because of this situation that I feel the success or failure of the corrupt Liberal cartel resides in Chuck Cadman's integrity....does he a have a Canadian statesman's vision and civil duty? What is his ability to resist the corrupting influence of the may bribes I'm sure the Martin government has offered him for his vote?

The end analysis is that the May 19th confidence vote hinges on Cadman's personal and civil integrity.

I too hope that Chuck Cadman is able to rise above it and put the interests of the entire country in his vote. To do anything less would be to not have considered what has taken place within the walls of government. If he does not vote against the Liberals then he is in fact condoning it.

It may be moot of The two cancer striken CPC MPs are not able to be in attendence after today.

There is no doubt in my mind that the callous Liberal power dogs strategised the confidence vote to be when these members were incapacitated by their illness...they also hope to stall for some byelections coming up shortly ....you can bet the Liberals are busy greasing that riding with all the ill gotten cash thay can lay their hands on to buy the seat with bribes and any other illegal tactic that they need.

NOTHING has changed since The Days Gomery has investegated.

Nothing has changed since the Day Paul Desmarais Senior and a Socialist small c communist name Trudeau decided to take over Canada. I bet they never dreamt it'd be this easy. Now we'll see how many Canadians are whores... if cash can buy them, or if morality comes first.

Yes DT....the new family compact has been with us for over 3 decades and ut arrived with our first small C communist PM.

More disparaging to me is that the head vampire of this corporate welfare cult that sucks Canada's life blood, now sits (unelected) in Canada's Privy council along with his former CEO, Moe Strong.

Canada's sad unwritten political history is a tale of how a Quebec business magnate's cartel bought a Canadian communist PM and started a ruling dynasty of socialist subsidized corporate plunder and corruption centered in the PMO.

BTW: It was Mulroney ( a power cor corporate lawter) who appointed Desmarais to the privy council....the rot runs deep and though all old line parties.
