Dear Readers:
Andy is kind of a left-wing guy, so he is not always objective about Harper, but heh, lefties gotta live too!
Harper government rewriting history!
Governments are always accused of trying to rewrite history. Sometimes politicians will skew the stories of the past to suit their own purposes.
Well, according to Post Media News, it looks like our parliamentarians are going to rewrite history — literally.
Federal politicians have launched a “thorough and comprehensive review of significant aspects in Canadian history” in Parliament that will be led by Conservative MPs, investigating courses taught in schools, with a focus on several armed conflicts of the past century.
The committee’s plan would “focus on Canadian history, including but not limited to pre-confederation, early confederation, suffrage, World War I, with an emphasis on battles such as Vimy Ridge, World War II . . . the Korean conflict, peacekeeping missions, constitutional development, the Afghanistan conflict,” as well as general Canadian history in the last century.
17865-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Nude-Middle-Aged-Cacuasian-Woman-With-Black-Curly-Hair-Preparing-To-Take-A-ShowerNDP MP Dan Harris voiced his concerns about the review during Question Period on Friday.
“They want us to trust them to rewrite provincial history books? Mr. Speaker, Conservatives in the Heritage Committee are now trying to remake our nation’s history in their own image,” he said.
“The last thing Canadians want is politicians deciding what’s in their children’s textbooks.”
Stephen-Harper-Photo-courtesy-of-ReutersSpeaking of Harper …………,Stephen Harper says people are “fed up” with the old constitutional battles that have been around his entire life.
The prime minister was making his first official visit to Quebec on Friday since allegations surfaced that Supreme Court of Canada justices intervened in the patriation of the Constitution.
When asked by a reporter about the controversy, Harper said his government’s priority is the economy of the 21st century and not the constitutional disputes of the 1980s.
“I think that the whole population is fed up with this discussion,” Harper said shortly after he announced 55 clean-energy projects at a hotel in Quebec City.
“We’ve lived with this for all my life, all our lives.”
Harper’s remarks drew applause from the dozens of people in the Tory-friendly audience, which included cabinet ministers, party staffers and partners in the newly announced energy projects.
