Bill C-38 — Stephen Harper Omnibus Bill

What is important to know about Budget 2012?

Despite a heroic effort by the NDP (New Democratic Party), the Liberals and Elizabeth May of the Greens to delay this evil bill, they could not stop it. The effort now needs to focus on removing Stephen Harper from office and repealing this legislation.

The following essay was written by my MP (Member of Parliament) Denise Savoie and her friends in the NDP party. I have added my comments in green. Stephen Harper is corrupt and deluded. He is dismantling the democracy of Canada step by step and consolidating all that power at his personal discretion. He is dismantling all environmental protection, silencing all scientific and environmental voices and handing Canada over on a plate for resource extraction to foreign multinationals, presumably because they give him large amounts of money for his personal and campaign use. He is also a fundamentalist Christian. He is denies that climate change is a real problem. He wants to run the country without benefit of statistics, science or facts. Voices in his head from the god Yahweh are all this fruitcake thinks he needs. Bill C-38, the government’s Budget Implementation Act, proposes fundamental legislative changes to the federal regulatory system and allows for expedited big resource projects.

The bill purports to be just the spending estimates for the coming year. But hidden in its 420 pages are over a hundred sweeping changes to legislation, mostly repealing environmental protection. Harper was trying to sneak the changes past the opposition and the Canadian people by hiding them in the fine print. That is a deceitful dirty trick. It is something Republicans might do. It has no precedent in Canadian politics. It is such a filthy trick, now that it has been exposed, Harper should resign. But has no shame, so he will not. My language is intemperate and inflammatory. I am furious. Part of what fuels my fury is these men are doing damage that can never be rectified later. They absolutely must be stopped. When you wipe out a species, there is no way to bring it back.

The NDP caucus has been working to have this 425-page bill split into segments so we can study it in depth. Unfortunately, the Conservatives rejected our constructive proposal. As your Official Opposition, we have launched cross-Canada budget hearings to hear from you. On Vancouver Island, people are concerned about the bill’s impacts on the environment, jobs and health care and the effects it will have on our natural resources management and on our fisheries. Here are a few of the many changes proposed in Bill C-38 that will affect our lives:



Natural Resources:


Health Care:

Government Ethics and Oversight:

Arts and Culture:

Counter Arguments

I have talked to some Conservatives who gave me the BS party line that this bill is merely belt tightening, shaving a little everywhere, with no political agenda, that the changes will improve protection of the environment. How do I know this is a lie?


Joe Oliver, Minister of Natural Resources, plays a similar rôle for Harper that Himmler did for Hitler. Peter Kent, Minister of the Environment, acts as Josef Mengele. They have a hatred for the environment as intense anything Hitler felt for the Jews. The three of them all have to be kicked out of parliament.

Luka Magnotta

A porn star Luka Magnotta allegedly killed an Asian male and sliced his body up and mailed off a torso, foot, head and hand from a Montréal post office. The foot was sent to Stephen Harper’s party headquarters. At first I thought this was some bizarre protest of Bill C-38. I was surprised to discover how articulate Mr. Magnotta was protesting various political issues on his now defunct website. He is quite coherent unlike your usual homicidal maniac. I think he is a narcissist. He vamps about in photos like some 1930s female movie goddess, like Adam Lambert’s evil twin. He has been known for some time for killing kittens on film for entertainment, feeding one to a python and taping one to a tube and drowning it. I suspect he will be one of those folk who give buggery a bad name.
