Harper’s Suppressed “Hat Trick” Video, Cont’d

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI_0zjWJJis

Well, that didn’t take long. We’d barely got the video up in the post below and it was scrubbed from the YouTube account hosting it. Thanks to the people who posted comments to provide more information and alternative sites still carrying the video.

It’s a small issue, but that’s what makes it all that much more telling. Look at the trouble the Conservatives are taking to make this video disappear. The effort says much much more than the video itself. This is control for the sake of control. And we’re just a few weeks into this new majority government.

More nonsense is on the way — the tar sands are being rebranded as “ethical oil” (I’ll have more on that shortly), and then there’s that massive crime bill which seems intended to replicate the Americans’ failed correctional policies, as well as mimic their unwarranted surveillance of citizens. The television ad campaigns have begun again. That, we’ve learned, is always an ominous sign.

We’ll make a point of following the fortunes of this video for the next little while. I’ve reposted it by way of another YouTube account. If that account is scrubbed, we’ll find another, and post that too.

    When the Conservatives aren’t being offensive they are being offended or using being offended as an excuse:

    Peterborough riding PC candidate Alan Wilson turned down the invitation to participate in the all candidates’ debate on social justice issues held in Peterborough on Friday night.

    “Wilson told The Examiner that part of the reason he didn’t attend was because Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro’s mother was ‘seriously insulted’ during a federal all-candidates meeting in April that was organized by the same people who hosted the social justice issues meeting Friday.”
