The federal government appears set to shut down the only public investigation into Ottawa's fumbling of the F-35 fighter jet purchase. Andrew Saxton, parliamentary secretary to the President of the Treasury Board, has told the House of Commons the Conservatives feel they've delved deep enough into the issues surrounding the cost of the stealth fighters. Media reports say the Tories are expected to pass a motion to end the hearings at a closed-door meeting of the Parliamentary public accounts committee today.Does it get any bigger than this purchase? The largest military expenditure in our history, hearings that came after a scathing report from the AG and these Conservatives are so drunk with power, they will actually shut it down and eliminate the only public inspection on this file? It would be amazing, except for the fact this is commonplace in Harper's Ottawa.
Look opposition, lets be blunt, you serve NO purpose whatsoever, except to have sand kicked in your face every single day. There is no "good work" being done, MP's are merely warm bodies, no more relevant that puppet legislative bodies that despots use to look representative. There are now two choices, accept your fate, or walk out on this farce, stay home with your constituents and take a much needed stand. The time has come to throw our entire system into question, because, well, it already IS!
Pack your bags, get on a plane, go home and do something constructive. Leave the dictator and his merry band of minions to the work they are doing irregardless, your input is better served on the streets at home, rather than a farcical place called Ottawa, wherein no practical good can come. Make a statement that shakes our democracy to its core, I have a feeling the move might just work to ultimate advantage, because once apathy is pierced, people will be appalled at the democratic rot.
Pack it in.
