As predicted, Jim Flaherty writes Gritgirl’s newest video.

Our sometimes furious Finance minister couldn’t have handed Gritgirl better material on a silver platter if he’d tried, as I predicted a couple of blogposts ago:

Love the music!


Gritgirl strikes again: “Different Tory, same old story”

A well-timed new video release from Gritgirl with Brian Mulroney back in the news:

This video is well done showing the similarities of Harper vs Mulroney vis-a-vis the economy and how they’ve handled the recessions in each of their time frame as Prime Minister (or mishandled it/dismissed it, as it were). The only quibble I’d have with her description of this video is that I don’t consider the modern day incarnation of the current Conservative Party to be at all compatible with the nickname “Tory” to describe any of Harper and his bunch. That nickname died when MacKay sold out the Progressive Conservatives to the Alliance.



Sobering stats

Some more reasons for the Liberals to launch their On Probation website is to keep the Conservative government accountable to helping folks like these:

The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada said that more than 117,000 Canadians filed for bankruptcy in the 12-month period ending in January 2009. That represented an increase of 15.8 per cent compared to the previous 12 months. In January alone, more than 10,000 individuals in this country filed insolvency papers, up 2.9 per cent from December. Perhaps more tellingly, the number of Canadians who filed for employment insurance benefits rose above the 500,000 level nationally for January, Statistics Canada said Tuesday.

That’s half a […]


Gritgirl’s latest video released today

It’s titled, “The Harper Conservatives Massive Deficit”

UPDATE: By the way, the point of this video (which is in the video at the end) is not that the Conservatives are going to run a deficit, or even a bigger deficit then they forecasted. It’s that not so long ago, they were rejecting we’d be going into deficit. This video points out that Harper was still standing up in Parliament as he did in this clip, and telling Canadians there will be a surplus, when everyone else was thinking a deficit was unavoidable. As the clip shows, that was November 27, 2008.



Gritgirl returns with revised video of Harper’s Friday the 13th.

…using footage of Harper’s speech that presumably isn’t owned by CTV/Globemedia. Here it is again, with the punchline being “Harper and Conservatives Making It Up As They Go Along”

Wow.. just read this at Warren’s:

The Cons freaked when they saw GritGirls latest, and even apparently got lawyers involved to get it pulled. This is a new version she did, copyright-safe.

This time.. I’m putting it in my sidebar too in a new page I’ve created called Videos, to keep as a constant reminder to folks about the ineptness and the dishonesty of Harper and the Conservatives. The other videos of Gritgirl are going in there too.



“Harper and Cons making it up as they go along”

I don’t normally post too many blogposts back to back in such a short turnaround time, but this was too good to pass up. “Gritgirl” posts another Youtube video, striking again at the Conservative Government and Harper making things up on the economy as they go along.

Gritgirl’s Youtube videos that started getting posted last week are getting noticed in the mainstream media, with some paranoid Conservatives claiming that “Gritgirl” is a front for Warren Kinsella. I don’t know if that’s the case or not, but its interesting how paranoid they seem about Warren, and how these videos must be hitting the mark, if they’re lashing out at them.



Just a question..

Will this prorogue look so great strategically as a political ploy for Harper if some economic shockwave hits us during the 7 weeks of the mandatory holiday Harper has given Parliament?

My example of a shock wave would be one or more of the Big 3 Automakers going into bankruptcy, and I bring them up as the example because I saw the story that Red Tory brought up over at his site that mentioned their pleas for a bailout on the 2nd go-around didn’t seem to go over very well with Congress (apparently they are asking for 34 billion $ in bailout money.. I think if I were Congress, […]


Spot the differences between Obama and Harper’s reaction to the economic crisis.

Barack Obama said this today at his first news conference as the President-elect said this about more grim figures for the US economy:

Obama said that, if the lame-duck Congress fails to pass a stimulus package before he takes office January 20, passing such a package will be his first move…He said the country must deal with several immediate challenges. Obama said a fiscal stimulus plan to jump-start economic growth is “long overdue.”…The president-elect also said he would make it a high priority to work on additional policy options to help the struggling auto industry.

Note the key phrases; stimulus package, assistance to the auto industry.

It we look at […]


Harper victory not exactly reassuring the markets. And more copying from Harper.


Decima drops the Cons. lead on the Liberals to 4 points today.
