Perhaps he's not as McSlippery...

...as he thinks...

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the New Democrats and the Progressive Conservatives have all called on McGuinty to apologize for the secret law his government passed regarding police powers during the G20 weekend.
Ever notice how Stephen Harper takes all the heat in the media for being an evil, controlling dictator?

Here we have a case of Dalton McGuinty secretly ramping up police powers... then unbelievably... trying to pass the buck to the Prime Minister.

The icing on the cake is that he gets caught in the act... then, in effect... tells the people of Ontario to go piss up a rope.
"Harper didn't pass a secret G20 law, the McGuinty government did," said Opposition justice critic Garfield Dunlop. "People were charged and they were put in jail and they knew nothing really about what they were doing wrong."

Unlike the NDP and civil liberties groups, the Tories don't want a public inquiry into the G20, but they do want McGuinty to say he's sorry for the secret law.

"He owes an apology. It's that simple," said Dunlop. "We're not asking for a huge, expensive inquiry. We're asking for an apology."
Let's see what kind of legs this thing has.

I'm willing to bet... not nearly as much as any of the media-manufactured Conservative-targeted "scandals" that hit the airwaves daily.

I'd say it shows how little the two parties differ while in government that neither had a problem with this at the time.

Power is power.

Unbelievably in all of this is that most Canadians still think they live in a free country despite overwhelming evidence this is not the case. All the while they point to the US as being an example of a country which is not as free as Canada! It's completely insane.

The media are happy to let Dolton McDipshittery off the hook, while deflecting the blame onto the PM. Just like the abuse of powers witnessed during the Turdo years, the media always and consistently look the other way when the abuses are perpetrated by the freaks who call themselves "Liberals". "Liberals" have never shown any reluctance to curb peoples rights, and clamp down the jackboot. "Liberals' are simply able to magically avoid any scrutiny, or responsibility when they do.

It's hardly magic when the media conspires with them to suppress the truth. They are finally having to face the fact that we the voters have long memories and can indeed make them pay for their thievery of the Cretin era. Now they should be nicely bankrupt and unable to mount a leadership campaign. Speaking of which, did any of the losers from last time ever pay back their loans? I keep hearing they get extension after extension from elections Canada, but again no consequences or scrutiny from the press. SNAFU...
