Open invitation to any and all politicians willing to join me at work for a day. Expired contract, impossible assignments, no support from government -- it's got all the stuff of a modern workplace epic! Join me!

Agreed. Corporate welfare has to end. It's all bad for Canadians wether it be for the Westons, Bombardier, or for a pipeline most Canadians don't want.

Meh. GST applies to all those things and I support that tax, first introduced by conservatives. And today's Liberals and Conservatives are pretty much the same, so, I don't really care. Alls I knows is they're both bad for me and good for the rich, and that's what I care about.

Huh. I just found it became increasingly difficult to get ahead while Harper was in power. It's almost like Conservatives only work well for the rich and not for average Canadians. He's hoping they never get elected. Ever again. Ever.
