Best news I've read all day

So the Wheat Board, the Trudeau Foundation, and other secretive, off-the-books government agencies are now subject to access to information requests -- or they will be in a month. I bet the paper shredders are working overtime there.

I wonder how much the annual honoraria are at the Trudeau Foundation. I wonder if that foundation is being used as a pension for out-of-office Liberals. I wonder what the expense claims are like. Those are just the trivial questions. Let's look at their plans, their budgets, the rest of it.

I wonder how many more of these little programs exist.A quick scan of the trudeau foundation reveals that it was started with 125 million of our dollars to reward and promote "progressive" people and thoughts. Will someone please let these people know that I can be bought? I promise to be "progressive" for as long as the free money keeps rolling in to my pocket.

Sad, but I don't think Ezra is far from the mark on that one. I know MANY public service employees and its not uncommon to send out a notice that all employee's will be subject to FOIP and they should review their files and act accordingly. This is well known to mean dispose of any incriminating information that could negatively effect them. I can hear the delete button and shredders from here!

My God , a look at their Board says it all.

When can we get Sheila Fraser to do an audit on these foundations? She needs to report to us:
What value do these foundations bring to the hard working taxpayers of this country?

Ezra, I saw you on The Agenda ripping Bernie Farber a new one. It seemed personal. You were great though.

It is high time that anyone and any group/organization receiving public funds be held accountable. No doubt they will do their best to dispose of a lot of information, but they need to be kept constantly in the public eye.

I was approached to apply for a Trudeau scholarship. I should have. If I had won, I'd be expected to accept it at a ceremony from the hand of a Trudeau demon seed himself. I'd refuse to shake his hand and say "I remember the NEP. This is partial payback for what you owe Alberta."

Oh I love me sometimes!

I trust you already have several dozen requests ready to be submitted. The number of news cuops that could be reaped from these fetid piles of liberal corruption would really put the Standard on the map across Canada.

I wonder whether monies went from the Foundation to fund ALex's retarded interview with the Palestinian terrorist?

Another conspirocy, the Grits are evil, theory from Ezra. Yawn. How surprising. Someone please shoot shoot the retarded gopher that obviously inhabits his head.

DON: Typical liberal retort, if you don't like what some one said, just scream and rant and cry and attack...but NEVER bother to actually constructively debate the topic. Why don't you try to at least attempt a rebuttal to his argument? People may take your argument a little more seriously then.

These Liberal party agencies suck up millions upon millions of dollars that get taken from the paycheques of Canadians, it's about time to shut them down.

"Another conspirocy, the Grits are evil"

You got the first part right, but it was all gibberish after that.

Only from the mind of the "bat".

SEAN WHELEN: Typical Tory lackwit and suckup. Spends most days dreaming of hot man sex with Ezra and Harper. Loser.

I am very happy too, Ezra.
Did everyone have a look at that steaming pile of offal on the board of the Trudeau foundation? I had a look at Demerais Jrs. credentials; with connections like this http://www.worldpress.org/Mideast/2439.cfm, the man should be in the jailhouse right now.
Canadians just supplied the 'seed' money ,IMO, through; major money for these criminals came via money laundering in totalitarian states throughout the world. The New World Order is an organization that wants to gain a monopoly of all world resources (including the people). They are evil.
Thank God we have Prime Minister Stephen Harper running the show here in Canada and President George Bush running the show in the United States. North America was going down fast and the msm made sure that the citizens of the free world did not find out. The Internet (and the Western Standard Magazine -outing the oil-for -food, money laundering 'steal from the people of Iraq for Saddam$$$' was dynamite! opened a lot of eyes!) has changed that. The msm is in on this crime, IMO. Actions speak louder than words.
