Canada’s own Queen of Hearts

Duncan – Like Lewis Carroll’s Queen of Hearts, Stephen Harper is one of those rare Canadians who can honestly say, “Sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast”. For example: Oil tankers navigating the treacherous waters off Canada’s pristine West Coast will never wreck and spill their cargo.

Canada’s spy agency, gifted with dangerous new powers and little supervision, can be trusted to never abuse those powers. Cancer and heart disease killed three million Canadians over the past two decades, while politically motivated violence claimed two, thus “terrorism” is the greater threat.

Every public statement by every scientist in Canada requires PMO approval, but the PM’s closest advisors have free reign to write large cheques.

Fossil fuel driven climate change threatens all life on Earth, yet heedless tar sands extraction remains Canada’s best bet for a prosperous future.

Canada’s participation in non-UN sanctioned Middle Eastern invasions and bombings has endangered peace and security at home, consequently the solution lies in more bombing and more killing, in more countries.

Canada’s own Queen of Hearts knows that it takes practice to believe in impossible things, and as for the doubting Alices, “Off with their heads”, of course.
