I can't some of you think Fatertly and James Moore are cool guys, sure am glad I could offset your vote in Port Moody.
He is such an asshole.
You mean the same James Moore, Heritage Minister, who is tits deep in an in-camera committee that is revising the guidelines for teaching Canadian history to school children? If this is necessary, why does it need to be done secretly, behind closed doors, with no scrutiny by the public or by educators?
Federal politicians have launched a thorough and comprehensive review of significant aspects in Canadian history in Parliament that will be led by Conservative MPs, investigating courses taught in schools, with a focus on several armed conflicts of the past century.
The study was launched by the House of Commons Canadian heritage committee that went behind closed doors last Monday to approve its review, despite apparent objections from the opposition MPs.
The parliamentary investigation would examine relevant standards and courses of study offered in primary and post-secondary institutions in each of the provinces and territories. Provinces are responsible for education in Canada, under the constitution.
The committee would also review programs designed to preserve Canadas history and heritage at all levels of government.
To be clear, our government has no intention of telling the provinces how to teach history, said Prime Minister Stephen Harpers spokesman Carl Vallée on Twitter Thursday. We respect and will continue to respect the jurisdiction of the provinces.
FYI, whenever Harper or one of his henchmen begin a statement with "to be clear" or "let me be perfectly clear" (think Del Mastro, here), the translation is "the next thing I say will be a total lie".
When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity.
When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.
