A federal government subsidy that makes me Gag

Corporate welfare is despicable enough, it doesn't need any help.

I guess Harper wants the cemetery vote in Saint-LĂ©onard.

<Google translation>

Yes, but it happened on your watch

CBC.ca: Dimitri Soudas, spokesman for the Prime Minister's Office, said in an e-mail to the Canadian Press on Saturday that "Alfonso Gagliano receiving a loan from Farm Credit Canada was disturbing."

"The Conservative Government believes that money should go to help farmers, not former Liberal cabinet ministers," he said.

I find it hard to believe that an individual like Gagliano and his loan application could slip through the cracks no matter what the guidelines are. Weird at best, incompetent at the least.

... Nb... again, you are accepting the collectivist role of the state, by reacting against individual policies- the implication being that you are supporting thousands of others.
... Either, you are in the boat, or not. Cynicism is a sign of those who (wrongly) consider themselves incapable of creating change.

I think it's safe to say that loan decision will be reviewed.
