The Moral Decay and Rot Within the Conservative Party.

Today we woke up to the news that Arthur Porter has been charged, and a warrant issued for fraud.  Twitter is ablaze with comments on a released video in which Tom Flanagan is of the opinion that child pornography is somehow a victimless crime. (Perhaps more about that in a future post.)  With Canadian Senators scrambling for the exits when questioned about their expenses and even their legitimacy, we are left to wonder just how deep the corruption and moral decay goes in the Conservative Party.

Here is a partial list of Conservative party members and/or supporters that have been getting into hot water. Many of them are PM Stephen Harper's appointees - some with connections to the PMO, others are MPs and Ministers.  These are just links to news media reports and many of the investigations are still ongoing but a disturbing pattern has emerged. As you go down the list, ask yourself if these are the kind of people you want governing your country. You may want to have something nearby to settle your stomach as you read.

Please use the comments section if you feel there's something to add to the list.  I'm sure there are plenty of other incidents.

  1. Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Neoconservatism: This entire “hard right” movement is a crock. It is not a religious evangelist movement, OR a Christian moral movement.

    It is a corporate movement.
