Stephen Harper Vs Democracy

Stephen Harper doesn't like Democracy. In fact Stephen Harper Wants to Stifle Democracy in Canada.

Just look at his track record of censorship and democracy.

Bill C-10, cutting tax credits for the Canadian film industry.

$45 million dollars in cuts to Canada's arts industry.

In 2007 Harper cut funding to women's rights groups and women's shelters.

In 2006 Harper cut funding to adult literacy programs.

Last week Stephen Harper tried to cut $30 million from public funding of political parties, money used to make sure elections are FAIR and DEMOCRATIC.

And for those naysayers who think freedom of speech doesn't go hand-and-hand with democracy, think about it. How can people make a reliable and responsible decision for who to vote for if they don't know the truth? If they are only exposed to an one-sided argument they have no choice but to agree.

Freedom of the Press is about giving people all their options, so they understand who is against an issue, who is in favour and WHY they are against or in favour of it. If a particular leader censors women, artists, writers, the film industry and people in general... well, that is hardly supporting democracy.

Its supporting ignorance.
