This is me, doing my bit, helping to save Palestinian lives.
I can live without the Government of Canada giving Volkswagen a loan to produce cars manufactured outside of Canada. I can live without ‘Canadian in name only’ companies whose production facilities are located outside the country being promoted by the Canadian government.
I can live without free trade agreements quite nicely, in fact, before NAFTA and hundreds of other Free Trade Agreements; the quality of goods and services produced was far superior to what is routinely offered for sale today in Canada. The pricing deferential, when compared to the quality and health risk, just isn’t worth it.
I want to live in a country which is economically self-reliant and who has a Prime Minister who has the interests of all Canadian citizens at heart rather than the shareholder stock price of a select few corporations. I want to have a Prime Minister who safeguards Canadian sovereignty, rather than giving it away, just so he can sign another free trade pact for his corporate cronies.
I can easily live without a Prime Minister of Canada giving away taxpayer’s money away to sponsor trade programs in foreign countries.
I can live easily with the idea that one needs citizenship to buy property in this country. I can live with the idea that Canadian companies have to look after their own labour supply, as opposed to the current practice of lobbying the government to import a constant stream of cheap labour to meet their business labour needs. I can live with a Canadian high school student serving me coffee or asking me - 'if I want fries with that?' And if you cannot afford to pay a Canadian caregiver/nanny minimum wage; either raise your own children or don’t have any.
I can live easily in a country where a Canadian Union does not have to take the federal government to court to protect the interests of Canadian workers from foreign controlled corporations.
I can live with potentially lower tax rates caused by a surplus of full-time jobs available for the working poor that pay a living wage rather than minimum one. And, I can live with a Prime Minister who cuddles dogs rather than kittens. Ironically, I was a 'Conservative' longer than Stephen Harper has been leader of the Conservative Party, but don't think for a second you can count on me during the next election.

Earlier Tuesday, by contrast, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel to carry out a “serious review” on whether its security forces are resorting to excessive force in clashes with Palestinians. Ban finds “the apparent excessive use of force by Israeli security forces” to be “troubling,” his spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters as violence continued in Jerusalem, Ra’anana and the West Bank. This “demands serious review as it only serves to exacerbates the situation leading to a vicious cycle of needless bloodshed,” he said.
Israelis have a right to be dissatisfied. Offering to put cameras on the roads won't stop attacks, in fact, cameras have absolutely no deterence value to stop Palestinian attacks given that the political infrastructure supports such attacks, and most likely, Fatah will be paying salaries to all Palestinians convicted of attacks against Israelis. Not to mention, cameras are easily disabled or destroyed, and it will take time - far too much time to get a network running when the attacks are happening now.A survey Saturday, commissioned by Israel’s Channel 2 and conducted by Midgam, found that 73 percent of respondents were either “dissatisfied” (35%) or “very dissatisfied” (38%) with the prime minister’s leadership in light of the security situation. When asked who would be the most capable leader in curbing the attacks, 22% said Yisrael Beytenu chairman and former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman. Jewish Home party chief Naftali Bennett came in second with 17% and Netanyahu third with 15%.Former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi received 9%, while Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog got 5% and centrist Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid 4%.
