At Rabble, Chloe Makepeace has ten reasons to oppose Bill C-38. As you saw from the list of Acts this Bill effects in some negative way, I have a lot more than ten reasons.

Den Tandt nails it: the Conservatives’ arrogance will come back to bite them. Though I’m not sure we’ll have to wait very long.

C-38: A Breach of Privilege? →
Here is the transcript of my point of privilege in the House earlier today. The fact that this government refuses to release vital information about the “budget” they’ve presented clearly demonstrates the fact they’ve forgotten that this is Our Budget, not theirs. It’s time that we remind them of that fact — loud and clear.

PM is spending political capital on omnibus budget... →
Tim Harper notes that the, “PM is spending political capital on the omnibus budget bill.” That’s true, but not really the point. Stephen Harper is spending the country’s capital — recklessly & irresponsibly. Weakening our environmental regulations, weakening our social safety net, weakening promises to our seniors. This government is selling our country short for...

Ben Spurr of NOW Toronto exhorts us to, “step off the omnibus.” Good advice. Indeed, Stephen Harper doled it out back in 2005. One wishes he’d heed his own advice today. Do the right thing and what the majority of Canadians want, Mr. Harper. Split C-38 up. This is Our Budget — not yours.
