Do political ideologies matter anymore in Canada?
Andy Radia – ca.news.yahoo.com – April 8, 2012
“Former Liberal MP Glen Pearson says what’s happening is that all parties are moving to the centre of the political spectrum in an attempt to gain and, in the case of the Conservatives, retain power.”
One of the examples given is the new NDP Leader, Thomas Mulcair, who was a provincial Liberal cabinet minister.
A couple of points about this:
As Steve Paikin (tvo’s The Agenda) mentioned in an interview, the Canadian foreign policy establishment (the establishment) is centre-left.
So naturally, since the political parties compete to serve the ruling elite’s agenda – war, debt and police state measures – they gravitate towards the “centre”, which is where the mainstream propagandist globalist media resides in their fantasy world of endless lies.
People who don’t like “left” call the bad guys “left-wing”. People who don’t like “right” call the bad guys “right-wing”. These terms are meaningless. You can tell where the “centre” is by listening to all the political correctness (of one flavor or another), UN policies, and propaganda that serves the banking, debt and war system.
An example of this is the Wikipedia article about Thomas Mulcair and how he might have questioned Obama’s story about killing bin Laden. Yes, I hear they supposedly threw the body in the ocean. The media supposedly believes it too. They certainly repeated it as if they did.
And of course, the biggest sign of moving to the robber baron centre is the NDP voting for the war/conquest in Libya. This is a good article to read even though it is “left-wing” (whatever):
The NDP and Libya: What would Tommy Douglas think?

“For the moment, these manoeuvres may work in garnering some support from the squishy political centre. But in the end, sacrificing principle for fleeting political brownie points is going to come back to haunt them with a vengeance: Principle, like honour, once abandoned, is not easily restored.”
Another article from 2008:
NDP Embrace War in Afghanistan
rabble.ca – Dec. 2, 2008
“… Opposition to the war is based on fundamental commitments. It is ideological in the sense that opposing imperialist wars will always be part of a belief system with deep roots (one which opposes dispossession, slaughter, torture, dedgradation, etc.) …
“… Since the party leadership was never genuinely or credibly anti-war, little is lost in selling out the rank and file, who’ve never counted for much beyond their raw support and campaign legwork. …”
Another example is how, listening to CBC, it seems that, instead of the NDP, air-time is given to build up Bob Rae, the leader of the Liberal Party (with only 35 seats), even though the NDP is the official opposition (with 102 seats). Based on the coverage, I wouldn’t be surprised if the establishment merged the two parties some day and made Bob Rae (CIC/CFR photo) the PM.
With the NDP and the Liberals, it’s all about UN “climate change” and carbon tax policies. With the Conservatives, they portray themselves as being against carbon taxes as in recent criticism of Mulcair. But I think that is likely an act so that people won’t notice when Canadian government representatives sign on to the upcoming Rio+20 agreement (Earth Summit 2012). They sign everything else. They withdrew from Kyoto – so what? It’s blowing smoke. They play their role to appeal to their supporters to neutralize any potential opposition to UN Agenda 21 policies.
We need to insist to MPs of all parties and educate others in the public that the Canadian government – meaning their bureaucrats too of course! – must not go along with Rio+20 and other world governance treaties and attacks on freedoms and property rights.
