Canadian Election UPDATE: Cons (Conservative Party) mash up poison pill for Mulcair

Tom Mulcair photo from CBC article quoted below
Dimitri Soudas, Harper's press secretary at the time, told Maclean's he was authorized to offer up to $180,000 a year, but Mulcair wanted $300,000. Soudas says after he said he couldn't go higher than $180,000, he never heard from Mulcair again.
Mulcair said conversations about an advisory role with the government began in 2006, but talks broke down over the Conservatives' environmental policies and not over money.
He denied negotiating with Soudas and said he had no intention of running for the Conservatives.
Mulcair at the time had recently resigned on as environment minister in Jean Charest's Quebec Liberal government. He joined the NDP in April 2007 and won a byelection in the Montreal riding of Outremont five months later

In my last installment, I ended with the "joke" that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was going to hire infamous US "swift boat" election strategist Carl Rove to devise a poison pill for NDP leader Thomas Mulcair.  I wasn't joking.  Harper actually has deep roots in the American political system (just how deep we'll never know) and probably could hire Rove if he needed to.

Today the papers are full of the news that back in the day...Tom Mulcair tried to get hired on by the cons...but the negotiations fell apart over money.  This kind of slick, slimy, negative politics is going to permeate the race from now on and will stink up the country big time.  Mulcair trying to fight back against these allegations reminds me of the old saying:

"Never get into a mud wrestling fight with a pig.  You'll get all dirty...but the pig will love it."

It's not that I don't believe Mulcair tried to get a job with the Tories...maybe he did...maybe he didn't. Frankly, I don't care. The problem is that when the debate sinks to this level...all the REAL issues go off the table (which is what the Tories want).  There will be no discussions of foreign policy, the environment, social policy or economic policy...all there will be is this democracy-destroying wallowing in the mud.  A campaign full of this will turn the population off and the voter turnout will be lower than ever.  But they don't care.

Hi Northerntruthseeker. You put your finger on one of the main reasons Canadians are so angry with Harper. Everyone thought that the mixing of Church and State went the way of the dodo bird...after all the sons of the Holy Roman Empire. But now Harper has brought it back in style with his blatant bias towards the Zionist state. Canadians used to be thought of as neutral and honest brokers on the international stage...but Harper has made Canada look like a nation of fanatics who don't mind open air prison camps at all. He HAS to go!

edit to above comment....I meant "sins" of the Holy Roman Empire not "sons"...although I'm sure there were a lot of those born too...on the wrong side of the blanket ; )

Just as an update to the above....Russia is now calling Canada "the most anti-Russian country on earth" and is going to come up with more sanctions against Canada's agriculture and other exports. Canadians are not anti-Russian! Harper has no right to be a one man band and ride his hideous ziofascist anti-Russian Hobby Horse across the international stage.

Hi NTS....thanks for re-posting your colourful comment. Normally, I don't allow profanities on my blog...and wouldn't post a comment with a profanity on someone else's blog...but, because you're from Northern Ontario...as I am...I will give you a pass.
