Confederation, 1812, The Franklin Expedition, World War I, Remembrance Day, Canada Day, D-Day 70th Anniversary, Diefenbaker's Bill of Rights, Canadian museums, Canadian currency, Canadian passports, Government websites, Government publications. And many more things that have changed since 2006 from what they once were and were meant to be. The Harperfication of Canada continues to rewrite history and common sense. All for the false image of a political party barely a decade old that has worn out its welcome already.
Meanwhile, science, statistics, libraries, archives and the agencies that oversee them are disappearing at a breakneck pace. Because they present a truth different from the "official" Harper Government stories. The word "Royal" is back with a vengeance in every place it ever was before. Even some new places.
We welcome back Stephen Lautens to help decipher and explain this ludicrous revisionism of history for the dogmatic aims of a backward, regressive party and regime that has cheapened Canada at home and abroad.
