What Is In The Budget Implementation Bill?

What Is In The Budget Implementation Bill?
  • 1 of 4

After the Harper government introduced the 2012 Economic Action Plan (read: budget), they had to introduce the budget implementation bill to Parliament. That implementation bill is numbered C-38 and titled by the government ‘The Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act.”

This bill also happens to be 452 pages and contains some things that weren’t really mentioned in the budget itself. Much has been said about the omnibus bill, including the fact that Stephen Harper blasted such bills before he was in government and discovered that they’re a useful tool put any sort of nasty thing in a bill like this and the opposition will have to vote against it, and all the juicy stuff you’ve hidden that taxpayers like.

The opposition tried to negotiate with the government to have the bill split into smaller bills so they could go through the appropriate committees, but the Conservatives declared it would be a waste of time since the opposition would be voting against everything anyway.

This is true, but the point is for Canadian citizens to find out about all the little details that the Conservatives are trying to push through. So here are a few things hidden in ‘The Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act’.

Kimberlee, we have to put up with these guys until 2015! Hopefully the Canada I know and love will not be completely dismantled by then. However, the changes Harper is sneaking in will apparently be difficult to reverse.

Just curious to my Canadian friends out there - - How long before you can chase this SOB out of office and just how the F*CK did he ever get elected in the first place? Did he sound like this when he was running?

Harper and his REFORM party scumbags are the WORST thing to happen to Canada. Ever. Bar none.

They're out to destroy Canada & what it used to stand for. He's a criminal, traitor and he's doing everything he can to destroy the best things about this country, all the while, promoting the worst.

The guy isn't a PM. He's a threat the likes of which we've never had up here before.
