July 1 has always meant celebrating what Canada is and what it stands for. That is, up until around 2007. Since Emperor stole his "strong, stable majority" it has resembled a Nurmburg rally more than a celebration of things Canadian.

Moreover, the perversion of CBC coverage into a CPC promo video has cheapened and tarnished what used to be a non-partisan, non-political celebration. Now it is a dog and pony show all about Emperor and his "vision" of a dogmatic, autocratic, plutocratic, militaristic lie of a democratic state.

There is little semblance to what I remember of Canada Days past. This makes me want to ask you, my listeners, what you remember about what Canada Day USED to be. I don't remember so-called Ministers who have been found guilty of election spending infractions and being threatened with censure from the House telling us what it means to be Canadian. I don't remember a Prime Minister's wife looking anywhere but at the supposed husband she supposedly resides with. A farce, just like this Government.

Despite this charade of unity and accord, of inclusion and harmony, I invite everyone to share their Canada Day experiences, old and more recent. Let's never forget what Canada was and can be once again.

WE are Canada, not the CPC, not Emperor's twisted vision, not the sullied reputation they have given us. And as always, Fuck Harper
