with cons, everything is on the chopping block after creating structural deficits…except advertising budget, always lots of money for advertising

Out of curiosity have they slashed spending at Aboriginal Affairs at the same level?

more not spending budgets to help Harper make his "balanced" budget.

RCMP have been holding back millions of dollars from the force's vaunted program to fight online child pornography, partly to help the Harper government pay down the federal deficit.

CBC News has learned that over a five-year period, Canada's national police force Mounties withheld some $10 million in funds earmarked for its National Child Exploitation Co-ordination Centre and related projects, linchpins of the government's anti-child-pornography agenda.

The cuts, made partly as an RCMP contribution to the government's so-called deficit reduction action plan, have occurred even as the number of child-exploitation tips from the public increase exponentially.

on one hand tell the public you've increased funding, on the other tell the departments they better not spend it.

New figures show the country's three major national security institutions were collectively unable to spend $11 billion of their budgets over the last eight years.

The statistics on lapsed funds at National Defence, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and the RCMP were presented today at the annual Conference of Defence Associations Institute meeting, which also heard a renewed warnings that the military is on the verge of a major equipment rust out.

The numbers stand in contrast to the rosy assessment of the Harper government's defence spending record as presented by Jason Kenney, the newly appointed minister.

Kenney dismissed the argument over lapsed funding, saying all departments do it as part of the normal budget process, an explanation the government used last year when it was revealed Veterans Affairs gave back $1.13 billion in unspent cash.

I thought we were either with the Cons or the Pedophiles? Apparently Harper and company are with the Pedophiles by their own definition .

A vote for the Christian Warrior Nation is a smarter vote than to vote Harper again.

Incumbency is anathema to democracy.

In other words, if you don't like Canada, vote for the incumbent, regardless of who or what you pigeon-hole yourself to be a part of.

So, we have a sitting CON MP and cabinet minister sticking out his tongue like a 4 year old, during question period. Great that Harper's cronies are elevating the level of discourse when parliament is in session!
