Why don't you sue Harper? In Federal Court? For declaratory and injunctive relief. To force Harper to take the gags off the public service and the armed forces. To allow free communications between the public at large and the public servants and service men and women we pay through our taxes.
It's well documented that the Harper PMO has the public service and armed forces gagged. Between them and the public he has insinuated what are fairly described as political commissars. They decide what communications from the public may pass through to the public and armed services and which may not. They also "craft" (their word, not mine) responses to those communications so that they comport with government policy. In other words, when we are allowed to ask a question or raise a point, the answer we may expect to get is one warped by Harper's political filters. They filter what questions may be asked and they filter what responses may be given.
In other words, the Harper regime has transformed both the armed forces and the public service into his private political agencies. He has politicized the public service. He has harnessed the public service and the armed forces into his service when they are, in fact, supposed to be in service to Canada. He has compelled them to do his partisan bidding.
And, bear in mind, Harper knows full well what he's doing. That much is apparent from this passage from a letter he wrote in 2001 while heading the National Citizens Coalition:
"Iron-fisted bully tactics have no place in a free and democratic society. Information is power. The less control the government has over the flow of information, the less control it can exert over its citizens."
What Harper is saying is that the more control the government (he) has over the flow of information, the more control it (he) can exert over its us, you and me. And that plainly accounts for the utterly Stalinist, "iron-fisted" communications policy he implemented to create an information drawbridge isolating the public from the public service. It's a policy that he admits has "no place in a free and democratic society." And he's right which means what he's been doing since taking power is utterly wrong.
Mr. Harper, tear down that wall.
