It's this simple. If you don't have money to maintain our Coast Guard stations and our fisheries monitors, you don't have money to squander on an Office of Religious Freedoms.
Sideshow Steve Harper's twisted, theocratic brain thinks depriving Canadians of their basic protections is a dandy cost-cutting measure especially when there's enough left over to fund a little religious dabbling on the taxpayers' tab.
Screw you, Steve. Maybe if you had balanced the federal budget you could mount some barely arguable case for wasting tax dollars on your fundamentalist fetish. You would still be wrong but at least you could argue the point. But you're running deficits and telling us all that we're going to have to tighten our belts for austerity is coming down hard on us. That's no time to be pissing federal money away on your or anyone else's silly religious superstitions.
And there is strong suspicion that the hasty closure of Kits Point is related to a pending deal for the land. http://www.theprovince.com/news/Hasty+closure+Vancouver+Kitsilano+Coast+Guard+relate+sale/8005115/story.html
They're funding their new office of fables by gambling with the safety of Vancouverites.
I know the Kits Point station is the most controversial but the Comox closure is far more worrisome. Comox is the only Coast Guard station that's considered tsunami-proof and it's the only CG station that is situated right on the doorstep of our only RCAF base and site of our search and rescue aircraft. Closing Comox is criminal.
Harper was Policy Chief for his, Northern Foundation Party of 1989. Harper was linked with Christian Fundamentalists, as well as other very dubious links.
Like most evil Dictators, Harper places no value on Human lives. Nor does Harper favorite country, Communist China.
If BC has a lick of sense? That province would, get the hell out of Harper's Canada. However we won't, we will just beef about it, and do nothing. We even permit Harper, giving us to Communist China.
Hmmmm? I wonder just who, or what country, will build condo's on Kits Rescue Base? What happened to the priceless Real Estate, that went with the BCR?
