Puppies for Sale

Mary Stansberry is an American friend from Kentucky. She often sends interesting stories to The Blue Maple Leaf. Here is latest one.

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups. And set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

"Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."

"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, "These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"

"Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here, Dolly!" he called. Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a some what awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....

"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands."

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.

Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

"How much?" asked the little boy. "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."

The world is full of people who need someone that understands.

John Loewen Seeks Liberal Patronage – Agrees to be an ‘Also Ran’ in Charleswood – St. James

John Loewen, a Manitoba Tory MLA, announced this week that he will be leaving provincial politics to run as a liberal in the next federal election. His opponant will be Conservative Health Critic Steven Fletcher in the Winnipeg riding of Charleswood – St. James – Headingly – Assinaboia.

When John Loewen made his announcement, he told reporters, “The Liberal Party of Canada, led by Prime Minister Paul Martin, closely reflects my vision and my values for Manitoba and Canada.”

What values are those you wonder?

Well, before John Loewen, Paul Martin appointed former Winnipeg Mayor Glenn Murray to run against Steven Fletcher in the Charleswood riding. Glenn Murray stepped down as Winnipeg’s mayor to run for the liberals in the 2004 election. Glenn Murray was appointed by Paul Martin himself against the wishes of the local riding association. In doing so, Paul Martin broke his campaign promise of addressing the democratic before the election was even called.

At the time of the 2004 election, Paul Martin and the liberals were realing from revelations that were coming out of the public accounts committee that was set up to look into the sponsorship scandal. Also at the time, Paul Martin himself vowed not to hold an election until all the details of the scandal were revealed to Canadians. Instead, Paul Martin shut down the committee at the very time that revelations were starting to hurt the liberal party and the liberals called an unnecessary early election in June of 2004. By doing so he broke another election promise.

The liberals have promised to scrap the GST since the early 1990s, but they still have not delivered. The liberals have also been promising a nationalized babysitting program, but have failed to deliver on that. Health care has been underfunded to the tune of $25 billion and is completely broken. Money has been squandered by liberals in the billions on scandal after scandal.

The only liberal value that liberals ever deliver on is patronage. If you do a nice thing for the liberal party, you get rewarded. Scott Bryson left the Conservative party and now sits as a cabinet minister. Belinda Stronach bailed out the liberals and kept them in power by the skin of their teeth and was also rewarded with a cabinet position. Glenn Murray left his job as mayor only to lose the election to Steven Fletcher, but don’t cry for Glenn. The liberals rewarded him too with a wonderful patronage appointment to chair the round table on the environment. This was an appointment that Glenn did not deserve and certainly was not qualified for.

Now it seems that John Loewen wants some liberal patronage. Surely he doesn’t think he stands a chance against Steven Fletcher in the Conservative stronghold that is Charleswood – St. James. Steven is loved by all in that part of the city.

Steven Fletcher is as non-partisan as they come. Even the most ardent liberal loves the man. Take liberal activist Rick Mercer for example. He is the comedian from the CBC show, “this hour has 22 minutes”. He considers himself flattered to get worked into Steven Fletcher’s schedule. Here is an excerpt from an August 8th Rick Mercer blog entry:

If anyone ever gets it in their head that MP’s don’t work like Torbay ponies in the summer they should check out Fletcher’s schedule. He has toured over 25 hospitals in Ontario alone this summer and has plans to see more. He is totally obsessed with his portfolio. He can talk health care until your eyes cross.

And nice? This is a guy who has absolutely no anger in his voice when he’s telling the very funny story about an airline losing his wheelchair.

Not long ago he found himself in Ottawa, sitting on a plane at 1:00am, having just flown all the way from Winnipeg through Toronto and nobody had a sweet clue where his wheelchair was. Eventually he ended up spending the entire night lying on an air mattress in the chapel. He literally had to stay there until the next day so they could find the lost chair and fly it to Ottawa. And just when you think the story has ended he tells you the part about how the chapel fills up at dawn with travelers of the Muslim faith who must take part in the Muslim call to prayer. Luckily they didn’t mind the guy lying on the air mattress in the middle of the room and Steven is partial to chanting.

This is why the good people of Charleswood – St. James elected Steven Fletcher to repersent their community in Ottawa. And he is partial to chanting.

In fact, if you listen carefully, you might be able to hear Steven chanting right now…Na na na na….na na na na……hey eh eh…..good bye.

Canadian Press Newswire was the Creator of last Week’s Gas Panic

If you don’t believe that the leftist national news wire service called The Canadian Press has influence in this country, consider this. Canadians were sent into hysteria this week over the price of gas. At gas stations all across the country, vehicle owners were causing huge line ups as they rushed to fill up their tanks.

On Thursday night at the height of the panic, The Blue Maple Leaf took the route #11 Portage Avenue bus home from the St. James area of Winnipeg. The sight was eerily reminiscent of a scary Hollywood disaster movie, with cars lined up all over the roads as people tried to get to the pumps first. It was not just one or two gas stations, but every single station on the Portage Avenue strip. It seemed like there were more cars on the road between 9:00-10:00pm that night than there usually is during the morning rush hour.

As it turned out, the cause of the panic was a rumor started by the Canadian Press out of Chatham, Ontario. The rumor going around was that the newest hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico, called hurricane Rita, was wiping out all the oil platforms that were missed by the last hurricane to blow through, hurricane Katrina. As a result, 20% of the oil supply was expected to be cut off and gas prices were expected to soar as high as $3.00 per liter within days. The rumor also had it that the price was already $1.75 per liter outside the city and some places in Ontario were already selling gas at $2.00 per liter.

After the panic had settled down most people realized that this rumor was a lie. Others believed that gas prices really had gone up to $2.00 per liter overnight and that evil gas companies made a killing on gas for 24 hours. Sadly, the truth is that gas prices never jumped that high anywhere in Canada and the source of the rumor was the vehemently left-wing national news wire service called the Canadian Press.

The Canadian Press newswire service is the source of much of the left-wing propaganda floating around the country these days. Many news services like radio stations and local newspapers either cannot or will not spend the money to have their own reporters verify news stories. So what these places do is simply sign up with the Canadian Press. When the Canadian Press publishes a story, then all the news outlets and radio stations pick up the report and relay it to their audience without even checking it.

People often overlook this, but every article you read in the local newspaper that has the letters (CP) in brackets is not really a story your newspaper has verified. This is simply a Canadian Press report. Here is an example of some liberal friendly (CP) propaganda courtesy of the Canadian Press and found in The Winnipeg SUN. It is a Canadian Press article about how Paul Martin gave a speech and announced that his new basic, fundamental, number one priority for the nation was the development of wind power. Funny, wasn’t wind power the number one priority of socialist NDP leader Jack Layton?

The question Canadians have to ask is, why would the Canadian Press create mass hysteria in our country by spreading propaganda with such a blatant lie?

Maybe the answer lies in the ideology of the left and the liberal/socialist agenda they are hell bent on advancing. Global warming is an invention of the left used to create hysteria and advance the liberal/socialist agenda of raising taxes in the name of saving the planet.

The roadmap of the global warming lie is easily traceable, starting with the notion that factories and people with cars cause pollution and are evil, because they cause global warming. Gas companies are evil, because they get rich polluting the Earth and causing global warming. Gas stations are evil, because they are like the drug dealers of the oil companies. Conservatives are evil, because they want to make it easier for oil companies to get rich while oil companies destroy the planet. Alberta is the most evil, because they are the headquarters for rich oil companies and worse, they are a province run by Conservatives that are all unfairly getting rich from drilling oil, destroying the planet, causing global warming and they won’t share their wealth with the rest of Canada.

The Canadian Press constantly ignores the fact that Alberta gives far more than any other province to Ottawa and gets back far less than any other province from Ottawa. The Canadian Press ignores the fact that oil and gas is the single most regulated and taxed industry in the nation and margins are smaller than most other sectors of the economy. The Canadian Press flat out lies when it portrays the Conservative Party, or any party for that matter, as being in favor of pollution.

Yet, so many Canadians buy into the whole notion that Global warming is for real when the left-wing dominated news media in this country tells them it is so. As of today, gas prices are still hovering around $1.00 - $1.10 per liter. The only shortages of gas exist at gas stations that could not get trucks out to refill their silos fast enough. Not only did the Canadian Press not issue an apology for creating mass panic nation wide, but they have followed up their activism with another one sided (CP) story about how urgent they believe Kyoto discussions have become.

The Canadian Press does not seem to be worried about fooling all of the people all of the time. Certainly they don’t fool regular readers of this blog. However, it is the people that will continue to believe that oil companies actually made a killing by selling overpriced gas, even after the (CP) rumor is exposed as a lie, that will continue to be fooled by what they hear and read from the liberal mainstream media.

Guess it is no small wonder that these Canadians are lined up down the block on a Thursday night to buy gas.

Crazy Relatives – We All Have at Least One

An interesting editorial appeared in the Winnipeg SUN today. The article points out an interesting little Shell Game that liberals have been playing on Canadians for quite some time now. Maybe you have noticed that when budget surpluses grow, the liberals lie to Canadians and say there is no money for tax cuts or health care. Then after the liberals have spent months telling Canadians there is no extra money, $4.5 billion magically appears to buy off the NDP and stay in power. Canadians never seem to know the truth about the nation’s finances, but the state of our treasury seems to mirror the liberal agenda at any given moment in time.

This column in the Winnipeg SUN exposes this shell game in an easy to understand way. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Martin's Shell Game

Just about every family has a crazy relative who has big, pie-in-the-sky plans for himself and everyone he knows. Except that he can't even keep track of his own money, or do a simple household budget.

For Canadians, that relative is crazy uncle Paul Martin, prime minister of Canada. Under Martin, annual federal budget projections have become a running national joke.

The projected surplus bounces around wildly. One minute, it's $9.8 billion. That's what the federal Finance Department projected in May for the last fiscal year. The next, it's $1.6 billion. That's what the Liberals announced this week.

One minute they solemnly tell us the cupboard is bare. The next, they've magically found $4.5 billion to buy the NDP's support in a minority parliament.

Martin, both as finance minister and now as PM, is also notorious for lowballing revenues so he has lots of our money to bribe us with, particularly during elections.

Today’s CTV Online Poll – Another Attack on Stephen Harper

The broken record that is the liberal mainstream media in Canada is at it again. The liberal media has been at it all day everyday since the spring pushing stories about how Stephen Harper needs to be replaced. Now CTV news is keeping the get Harper agenda alive with today’s poll question. They ask,

“A small but growing number of Conservatives are calling for Stephen Harper to resign. Do you think the party needs a new leader?”

Why is it that CTV only wants to know if Harper should resign? This is the kind of neutrality you almost coming to expect from the liberal media. A small but growing number of people want Stephen Harper to resign. Would you like to jump on the bandwagon too? Answer today’s exciting poll.

Consider Paul Martin and all that he has done for his liberal party. Paul Martin has led the liberals through one multi-billion dollar scandal to another. There was the HRDC boondoggle that cost Canadians $1 billion and the $2 billion gun registry that was supposed to cost only $85 million. There was also the Quebec sponsorship scandal, which cost taxpayers $355 million and represents the biggest vote rigging scandal in Canadian history, and it is certainly the biggest vote rigging scandal for a democracy in recent history.

For all these liberal scandals, Paul Martin was both the Prime Minister and leader of the liberal party or he was the party’s finance minister. During the time of the Quebec vote rigging scandal, Paul Martin was also the Quebec lieutenant of the liberal party. Paul Martin has done more to destroy the reputation of the liberal party than any other leader in history. He has also energized the Quebec separatist movement in a way it has never been before.

Yet despite all this, the liberal media continues, with its unrelenting avalanche of stories that say Stephen Harper needs to be replaced. And the liberal media pulls out the same tricks to push this story. They do man on the street interviews and put people on TV willing to say Harper needs to be replaced. They quote the infamous ‘high level anonymous source’. They conduct a poll asking people if Stephen Harper needs to be replaced. Not Jack Layton. Not Paul Martin. They only commission poll after poll after poll to see if Stephen Harper needs to be replaced.

It is truly amazing that the liberal media can always find nice things to say about the biggest crook we have ever had for a leader, but that same group of journalists cannot find one nice thing to say about a Conservative with integrity.

It is no wonder Brian Mulroney said even Hitler had a reporter say one nice thing about him every 10 years.

The Cost of a Miracle

Mary Stansberry is an American friend from Kentucky. She often sends interesting stories to The Blue Maple Leaf. Here is latest one.

A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet.

She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes.

Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big Red Indian Chief sign above the door.

She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention but he was too busy at this moment. Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster. No good. Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it!

"And what do you want?" the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice. "I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages," he said without waiting for a reply to his question.

"Well, I want to talk to you about my brother," Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. "He's really, really sick... and I want to buy a miracle."

“I beg your pardon?" said the pharmacist.

“His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a miracle cost?"

"We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I can't help you," the pharmacist said, softening a little.

"Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me how much it costs."

The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man. He stooped down and asked the little girl, "What kind of a miracle does your brother need?"

“I don't know," Tess replied with her eyes welling up. I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money."

“How much do you have?" asked the man from Chicago.

"One dollar and eleven cents," Tess answered barely audibly.

"And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to."

"Well, what a coincidence," smiled the man. "A dollar and eleven cents---the exact price of a miracle for little brothers.”

He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said "Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you need."

That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing in neurosurgery. The operation was completed free of charge and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well.

Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place.

That surgery," her Mom whispered, "was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost."

Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle dollar and eleven cents....

Plus the faith of a little child.

Ontario Liberals Bring the End of Religious Freedom in Canada One Step Closer

The liberal assault on religious freedom in Canada has made another gain. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty announced that he would move quickly to abolish religious tribunals used for years by Christians and Jews under Ontario's Arbitration Act. The announcement was made while speaking to the Canadian Press, a left-wing national news wire service.

Under the Arbitration Act, people of faith that wanted to resolve marriage disputes or seek a divorce could enlist the help of their local church or synagogue. This allowed Canadians the option of avoiding the long drawn out legal process of using a divorce court. Any decision by these faith based tribunals was only binding if both parties agreed to the terms. When either party felt the decision was unfair to them, then the courts were still the final arbiter.

This decision will only serve to increase the roll that government plays in our lives. By abolishing these tribunals, the liberals have made government and government run courts the only option people have to resolve their differences in a marriage. This is great news if you are a government bureaucrat or a lawyer, but it is one more nail in the coffin of religious freedom in Canada.

This latest anti-Jewish/anti-Christian liberal initiative follows a long list of other policies that are beginning to spell the end of religion in Canada. The two most high profile liberal victories in the war on religion were bill C-250 and bill C-38, both of which came in the last few years.

Bill C-250 was the private members bill introduced by convicted jewel thief and socialist NDP politician, Svend Robinson. This bill amended the criminal code and made it a crime to say anything negative about the practice of homosexuality. Anyone who now quotes bible passages that refer to homosexuality as a sin or even quotes the verse where those passages can be found may be found guilty of inciting hatred and thrown in jail.

Bill C-38 was the same-sex marriage bill that redefined the word marriage to included homosexual couples. The institution of marriage and the definition of the term were both creations of religion. Governments adopted and promoted traditional marriage, because the traditional family has long been considered the cornerstone of civilization. Even though homosexuality is considered a sin in all three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the time is fast approaching when these religions will face discrimination charges for refusing to marry people of the same sex.

Pretty soon secular liberalism will be the only religion left in our country.

More Propaganda from the CBC – FEMA Director Fired According to Headline

A CBC headline states that FEMA Director Michael Brown was fired. This is a complete lie on the part of the CBC. The goal of Canada’s state-run broadcaster in publishing that headline is to affix blame to the American government and its president George Bush for problems distributing aid following hurricane Katrina. However, Michael Brown was not fired despite the CBC’s claim.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, called FEMA, is an agency under the supervision of the Department of Homeland Security. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff made the decision to pull Brown from field duties now that the situation in New Orleans is under control and those duties have been turned over to Coast Guard Vice Admiral Thad W. Allen. Brown will continue to oversee relief efforts from Washington.

During a press conference Chertoff said, "Importantly, we must have seamless interaction with military forces as we move forward with our critical work in New Orleans and the surrounding parishes. At the same time, we are still in hurricane season and need to be prepared to deal effectively with the possibility of future hurricanes and other disasters."

Left-wing media outlets like the CBC have been on a relentless campaign to blame Bush and the federal government for mismanagement of relief efforts. Liberal Democratic Senator Nancy Pelosi of California released a statement on Friday calling for Michael Brown to be fired. In that statement she affixed all blame for the relief efforts on him. This headline by the CBC is a nice attempt to qualify her comments, but it is simply more CBC propaganda.

Some things never change.


The CBC, caught yet again engaging in propaganda, has modified this article. Whereas the previous version stated, “New Orleans under control, Brown fired, FEMA to stop giving out debit cards,” the article now reads, “New Orleans under control, Brown reassigned, FEMA to stop giving out debit cards.”
The article itself, however, it still a liberal attempt to blame FEMA director Michael Brown for the relief fiasco and deflect responsibility toward the federal government and the Bush administration in particular. The reality is that local and state governments, governments that have been 100% dominated by liberals for the last 60 years, were the ones who dropped the ball.

Are the Liberals Making a Play to Nationalize Oil and Gas Again?

This news story from the state-run propaganda machine, the CBC, should scare the hell out of Western Canadians. The CBC is putting out the idea that Canadians want the energy sector taken over by government, and they use the results of a poll to back up their claim. The CBC is infamous for skewing polls to fit their pro-socialist, pro-liberal agenda and this is just the latest example. The Headline reads:

The Canadian Press said Monday a Leger poll suggested 49 per cent of respondents want petroleum resources nationalized while 43 per cent said they would like to see the same fate for gas companies.

The Leger Marketing telephone survey of 1,500 people was conducted between Aug. 24 and Aug. 31, much of it before the major effects of Hurricane Katrina were felt.

The liberal love affair with raiding the pockets of Western Canadians is never ending, especially when it comes to the energy sector. In a bid to address western alienation, liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin visited a few cities western Canada and said things he though the people of western Canada might want to hear. One comment he made was that the success of Alberta’s oil and gas companies were good for all of Canada. Now, the untold story behind that comment is starting to come to light.

It looks as though this CBC poll-a-torial and Paul Martin’s read between the lines comment could mean that we will be reliving the failed liberal policies of the 1980s.

Norman Spectator describes Trudeau’s National Energy Program fiasco this way:

When Ottawa stepped in with the National Energy Program (a "sharing" program) in the 1980s, that led to destroyed businesses, a near-collapse of the energy industry, and lost livelihoods for thousands and thousands of Albertans.

That program was a textbook case of killing the goose that laid the golden egg. When the Alberta energy sector prospers, all of Canada benefits. Alberta's energy industry buys much of its equipment from Ontario's manufacturing sector, for example, sustaining jobs for our Ontarian cousins. Business taxes sent by the sector to Ottawa help fund health care and other programs in every corner of the country. And on and on. When that sector experiences a downturn, the chill is felt in boardrooms, lunchrooms and living rooms across Canada.

Alberta has never said "no" to helping the rest of Canada through improvements to revenue-sharing programs. But it does say "no" to other governments that, seeing a likely-brief spurt of extra revenue in Alberta, target the province as a quick fix for their problems. History has proven that doesn't work, and in the end, the whole country suffers.

The cost to Canadians for the failed liberal policies of the 1980s is still being felt by Canadians today. One year ago this month, Ezra Levant wrote an article for the Calgary SUN. In that article he outlines how that failed socialist experiment of Trudeau’s National Energy Program cost the Canadian taxpayer over $100 billion. In that article he wrote:

Back then, Quebec's hegemony over Canada was being threatened by the rapid growth of Alberta's population and even faster growth of the oil patch. The economic centre of gravity was moving west, and the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal axis of power was being challenged. That could not stand, at least according to Paul Martin's mentors, Pierre Trudeau and Marc Lalonde.

Lalonde himself publicly admitted at the time that staunching the flow of money to the West was a guiding principle of his National Energy Program. In addition to forcing oil companies to sell oil below its market value, usurious taxes and political review of foreign investment, the NEP nationalized a good portion of the industry into the body of Petro-Canada, distorting the marketplace for all private sector competitors.

Petro-Canada wasn't about energy. It was about socialism. Proof of that was that its early president was Maurice Strong, the globo-socialist who went on to chair the Rio Summit against oil, and became chief architect of the Kyoto Protocol. Martin is connected here again. It was Strong who gave him a job in college working for him in this socialist enterprise.

All the pieces of the liberal agenda are here and fitting together like a puzzle. You have the state-run propaganda broadcaster, the CBC, preaching that Canadians and oil companies are to blame for global warming. You have a plan to implement global socialism in the Kyoto protocol, a document drafted by the creator of the biggest liberal boondoggle in the history of Canada. You have Paul Martin implementing Kyoto by shipping off Canadian taxpayer money to Communist China by the billions of dollars to purchase emissions credits in the name of saving the planet. And, at the center of blame are the people of Alberta and the oil and gas companies trying to supply a Canadian economy with supply problem brought on by decades of manipulation by liberals and their punitive government regulations.

Last month’s ploy by Paul Martin to address the problem of western alienation may just be part of his goal to nationalize a bigger part of our lives.

Liberal Party Strapped for Cash – Expect Election to be Postponed

When the Paul Martin liberals were facing an early election this year, the Prime Minister used a televised address to beg Canadians for more time in power. Paul Martin personally vowed to call an election within 30 days of Justice Gomery’s final report on liberal corruption in the sponsorship scandal. Justice Gomery’s final report is due in December. However, the liberals are in bad financial shape and Canadians should be prepared for this promise to be broken.

A relentless fundraising and propaganda drive this year by the liberal party has not had good results. The liberals continue to spam everyone on their mailing list with requests for cash. Another such e-mail was sent out today. It reads:

Dear Michael,

On Tuesday, August 23, 2005, during the Liberal Caucus meetings in Saskatoon, Prime Minister Paul Martin reaffirmed his commitment to call a general election within 30 days of the release of the Gomery Commission final report.

This means that we have less than six months to be ready to run a winning campaign. We are asking you today because your involvement now is key to a Liberal victory – and our goal is a Liberal majority.

We have made important progress since being elected. Better health care. Stronger environmental standards. Equal rights for all. Investments and commitments in every community across the country. We are making positive change together. And Stephen Harper is threatening our progress. We need your support to make sure he doesn’t get a chance.

You can make a real difference today. We need every Liberal in Canada to donate now. You will receive a tax receipt for your contribution – and join thousands of Canadians supporting the Liberal Party’s campaign for Canada.

Thank you in advance for keeping Canada strong.

Mike Eizenga
President, Liberal Party of Canada

PS. You can help us by sharing this message with your friends and asking them to support the Liberal Party of Canada today.

In the interest of helping put the federal liberals out of their misery, we wanted to share this message with our friends and loyal readers of our blog.
