Bill C-38, the Omnibus "Budget" Bill, is more than 420 pages long and contains numerous non-budgetary measures that were never announced to Canadians.
Approximately one third of it is dedicated to the gutting of environmental regulation and protection.
It also greatly reduces the powers of the Auditor General, as well as making changes to Old Age Security, and many other important issues.
The Conservatives have strictly limited the amount of time opposition parties can spend studying and debating this massive and destructive bill.
Why? Do they wish to ram this legislation through before Canadians wake up to all of the sweeping changes that it contains?
Can you say, "Contempt of Parliament" (again)?
Meanwhile, Elections Canada continues its investigation into possible election fraud, stating that it may take at least another ten months to a year to conclude.
Until such time, Canadians cannot be assured that the "Majority" status of the Conservative government is legal and legitimate, nor that the 2011 election was fair, democratic, and free of fraud.
And yet this government (charged and fined for election fraud in the 2006 election) is attempting to ram through its massive omnibus legislation contained in Bill C-38 while shutting down all opposition to it in the House of Commons.
Wake up, Canada, before it's too late.
Prime Minister Harper and his government are undertaking an attack on our democracy, and they are doing so quite secretively.
