The political turmoil, the threats of taking over the government and the potential for further social, economic and political destruction, is massive.
The fact that we would have threats of overthrowing the government in Canada is unimaginable. But it is real. One would expect threat of a coup from developing dictator nations. But not in our 146 year old democracy.
Canadians must not allow the three leaders nor the Governor General to do this. Mr. Layton and the others have not even attempted to make parliament work as they were scheming the overthrow before the session started.
We will take whatever actions must be taken to stop the destruction of our system. Three parties, none of which elected more than 77 seats, want to rule. And to make this even more dangerous the balance of power is with professed separatists whose leader said during the election campaign just weeks ago that he “does not care about Canada”.
We need to express our decision – there will be NO coalition. We need to tell these leaders to stop their destruction of Canada. Yesterday our stock market which was perilously low anyway went down 864 points (record market destruction) due to the threats of these coup perpetrators. The instability is causing greater harm and loss of many people’s investments.
If the Governor General were to allow this coup it should be considered treason.
Please sign the letter below and forward it to your friends and to Mr. Layton, Mr. Dion, and Mr Duceppe so they know where we stand as Canadian Citizens. We want to make our voices heard in Ottawa for a change.
Change what you want but email this to these email address..
Please send each leader an email – express your dismay, disgust, and resolve to stop this action.
[email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and the Governor General – [email protected]
Good Afternoon Sirs,
I’m sure that my ancestors who came to Canada for a better life are rolling over in their grave this moment for the stupidity that our political parties are perpetrating on the Canadian Citizens at this moment. An election was held and none of your parties were strong enough to defeat the Conservatives based on each of your leadership skills and party policies put in place. The majority of Canadians did not go to the polls because they did not believe in you as leaders or that they would be listened too. And once again you have proven them right.
I am (insert age here) years old (insert province here), who is not employed by the Oil industry. In this last election, I voted but not for who I thought would be a dynamic leader for Canada, but because I did not want to see certain Individuals or Parties representing me as a Canadian in the world scene.
A coalition government is not what Canadians want. Listen to the people. All of you have said that the opposition parties had lost confidence in the Harper Government, but not once was it said that the all the Canadian citizens have lost confidence. The majority of Canadians did not vote because they did not have confidence in any of you to lead the country. The majority who did vote, did not want any one of you to lead them. This is a dirty political play that is representative of many other unsettled countries of the world, not Canada. You did this in retaliation for an election you knew you couldn’t win, a possible loss of money for your parties, that instead would go to Canadian Citizens, and pettiness. You did not do this for Canadian Citizens. You are not listening to Canadian citizens. You have given power to an appointed position, the Governor General, not to the democratic process. You are showing very little respect to Canadians.
I am terrified of what is happening to my investments for the future because of your lack of concern regarding actions. The Toronto Stock Exchange on December 1st had the largest single day fall since that Black Day in 1987. This is due to the idea of a Coalition Government. Canadians are losing their jobs, fear losing their homes, and futures. You are wasting valuable, important time with this grandstanding action rather that working with Stephen Harpers government. You are damaging Canada in the worlds eyes, and at an already uncertain time, endangering more Canadian jobs and security.
Mr. Layton, I find you disrespectful of Westerners. I found you very abrasive in the debates, and in media sessions. I watched the English language debate, to make sure that I was an informed voter. You have no solid plan for the future for a greener Canada. Your promises regarding healthcare are farfetched, it has taken many years for Canada to get in this position caused by both the Liberal and Conservative Governments of the past 30 years. We are educating fewer Dr’s in Canada, healthcare workers are getting older and working longer hours; leaving for Greener pastures in other Countries. Other Countries are also crying out for Drs. How do you feel that you can solve this issue as a Prime Minister in a quick, safe, fast way? Impossible. As for hiring foreign Drs, if they were available, I have an example as to why this is scary to some Canadians. My dad broke his back last December, was seen by a Dr from South Africa, who was more concerned about whether my dad could understand him, then diagnosing the issue. My dad was sent home from the hospital after being there overnight and did not know for 2 1/2 days that he had actually broken his back. How scary is this? And you think that this is what Canadians desire for Dr’s ? I don’t think so. On the other hand, my personal Dr. is from another a country, has been here many years and has treated me very well. He is getting older and has more demands upon his practice yearly.
Mr. Dion, I respected you as a person during the election, as being above much of the mudslinging. I felt that you were a scape goat for your party, the Liberals, after the debacle that Mr. Chretien and Mr. Martin gave us when they were in Power. However I did not feel that you were the right representative for Canada on the World Scene. I did not feel you had a strong enough personality. I disagreed with many of your Liberal party members and I didn’t feel that you related enough to me as an Albertan. Your carbon tax idea scared me. I believe that Canada needs to become more Green, smarter world wise but I don’t feel that you could have steered us in this direction. I believe that you are a learned man, smart and a good MP for your area but not for all of Canada. For this I could not vote you in. Plus to have another do nothing Liberal Government after the past one would be awful for Canada in this scary time globally. Another issue that I feel you need to address is, when I phoned your office this morning to leave a message for you regarding my concerns, I was treated very rudely by a staff member, who hung up on me 3 times, because she felt stressed out by what she was hearing today from other citizens and by what I had to say. I told her I was stressed out by what I was reading in the newspaper, watching on the News, and your parties were saying. How is this any different and why am I not as important?
Mr. Duceppe, being from Manitoba, I can’t vote for your party. For many years I have watched you in the political debates and arena, and have respected many of your ideas. I personally think if Quebec leaves, go but take your part of the debt with you. No money should come from Canada to Quebec, no special treatment, trade agreements, sponsorship money, equalization payments etc. Same as for any province who decides to leave. I respected what you said during the Debate about encouraging Canadians to buy Canadian Products, improving manufacturing, and making Canada more self-sufficient. However, you party by policy represents only a small portion of Canadian Citizens.
I voted for Stephen Harper because his party was more in line with what I believe and because I see him as a lesser threat. Not the best Prime Minister Canada ever had, not the worse either. Chretien and Mulroney were definitely worse than this man is.
I would like all of you to call, write, respond in some way to my concerns. As a member of Parliament, you have that responsibility and must answer any questions put to you by a Citizen. I expect these answers shortly. I have left messages and am forwarding this to the media outlets around Canada and to my friends, asking them to sign this coalition and forward it to their friends and all of you. Hopefully, for a change, you will listen. Stop the nonsense and stupidity and listen to Canadian Citizens for a change.
