Of course it isn't but as Canadian politics is a central feature of this forum, it takes a complete imbecile to claim that actions that call into question the very concept of a democratic Canada aren't relevant to discussion here.
Are we supposed to quietly pretend that our current federal leader and government even care about democratic laws and traditions in Canada because that's a convenient fiction for a few here?
I was around for all the Pierre Trudeau years and from what I remember he was pretty popular, I'm not sure how he "raped Canada". But I'm probably biased about the Trudeau years, I was about six at the time and a neighbour was running as part of P.E.T.'s first campaign. His daughter was my girlfriend at the time and her father was one of the coolest guys I've ever met...so people who go on endlessly about evil Liberals are probably insane in my opinion. Especially when you consider the fact that the Liberals were so successful because they appealed to the values of most Canadians, they didn't always try and impose their's on us the way Harper does.
I wasn't in Canada for the first few years of the Chretien mandate, but I had family members who were part of the Solidarity movement and spent a little time working with him. I think it's wonderful that we still have a Canada, so I'm not going to totally condemn Chretien either. I'll leave that once again to the unbalanced who seem to think they are somehow in possession of Canada and we all need to toddy up to them now.
