Harper's New Legacy : Be Chinese.

by Raymond Alexander Kukkee

The light of truth is blinding...

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has left a new legacy for Canadians:  Become Chinese

We will soon be living in Chinada and speaking Mandarin
We won't have to worry about the well-being of Canadians or our historical friends the Americans on the world's longest undefended border. 
We won't have to worry about  Quebec separatists
We won't have to worry about  speaking Quebecois 
We won't have to wonder  if our flag has a maple leaf.   Why?
It will all be Chinese. 

 In an 'oil deal' that 99.9%  of  logical, thinking Canadians did not want, China's state-owned oil giant CNOOC  has been allowed to take over Canada's Nexen, a $15B  mistake.  A huge swath of the Canadian oil sands will now be under the control of the Chinese government.

We cannot believe our eyes. This decision casts shame on the "Harper government" --And yes, let us, in this instance, call it what it IS...the "Harper government"It certainly does not represent the interest of Canadians.
Is this deal good for Canada?  NO.  Let us exclude the opinions of short-sighted politicians with their own self-serving agenda,  greedy oil barons and foreign national communists alike, who will make billions of dollars.
Let us totally ignore  the Alberta "government" , which is blinded and  inebriated by oil fumes and doesn't  give a royal crap what they do as long as they make money from dirty oil at any environmental cost, prancing in delight at the prospect of big piles of money, regardless of the iron-clad guarantee of  an unprecedented  environmental disaster the size of Nova Scotia.

The question should be: 

Since when is it in the interest of Canadians to sell control of Canadian resources to a foreign Communist nation?  
What is this government up to?   Should we "follow the money?"  The truth always comes out. 
The approval of the Nexen-CNOOC deal will change Canada forever.

This huge mistake  is reminiscent of a previous huge mistake  by the "Diefenbaker Conservatives"   to kill off the AVRO ARROW -an incredibly bad error in judgment and a  decision that destroyed Canada's huge technological lead in the aviation industry.
This huge mistake  is also reminiscent of another HUGE mistake by the "Mulroney Conservatives", the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which made billions of dollars for big Corporate North America, but did nothing for ordinary Canadians. Canadians continue to pay incredibly high prices for comparable products

NO disrespect, but all Canadians should be asking this question
   Like the "Diefenbaker Government",  why is this Harper Conservative "government" so short-sighted? 

Why do  arrogant Conservative governments repeatedly make basic, essential errors in government that ARE  huge mistakes,  unmitigated disasters with bad long-term consequences?

It seems only Stephen Harper himself could make a decision as bad as John Diefenbaker's  AVRO Arrow decision was.     
 To wit:  It will now cost  Canadians  $60B to "buy" jet fighters that still cannot out-perform the highly advanced, high-performance Avro Arrow scrapped some 50 years ago. 
John Diefenbaker sold out to the USA aviation industry, and now Stephen Harper somehow appears to believe  it's a fine idea to allow a sell-out of Canadian resources to China--at any cost.

A couple of days ago I was walking around in "Canadian"  Tire, a 'big' Canadian retailer that now sells everything made in  China.
 No matter what I picked up to look at, it was "Made in China". From baking pans to dishes to appliances to tools. Soft goods, hardware, everything in between. "Made in China". Canada --has now been 'made by China" but let us not be TOO impolite.

North America has lost the ability to produce anything.  How sad for Canadians. How sad for North America. It's NOT for lack of rich people or a dearth of investment money in Canada or the USA. Follow the money. It is going offshore to Asia.

Increasingly, little of anything is now manufactured in North America because "big Corporate North America"  and the rich can make bigger profits  and more money outsourcing  in China--where virtual slave labour,  uneducated people, being paid  slave labour rates, and living in poverty --under iron-fisted Communist rule-- are thlabour force of choice.There are virtually NO environmental regulations in China, as witnessed by the horrific, stifling and deadly pollution that is everywhere.

With the CNOOC takeover of Canadian oil approved,  Harper's recently gutted environmental rules will come in handy to China. Environmental concerns will be ignored "the Chinese -Harper way 
Pollution in, and  destruction of Canada's north  is now assured to be the planet's biggest environmental disaster. 

CNOOC will also  "conveniently"  now dictate the necessity of construction of the Northern Gateway Pipeline through the pristine BC coast line --an earthquake prone area.  Our "trusted Conservative politicians" who have known this from the very start will 'throw up their hands like foolish children and say "Well, what can we do, it's "our" industry"...... and "acquiesce smugly" -- knowing they had this planned all along.

Now that the deal is approved, the government "swears" there won't be any more deals like these?  We know better.   ALL Canadians know that Conservatives, like most politicians,  say what is convenient  to their egos and pockets at the time. The truth eventually proves them to be blatant liars and deceivers and as such, unfit to govern. We "wrested concessions from China in this deal?? Let us now laugh in disbelief at the blatant lies.

China is already laughing;  they will also laugh and walk away from the unprecedented ecological disaster and Canada will be without remedy after the oil sands resources are depleted, and  China will 'conveniently' move on to target other resources.
This is a sad day for Canada.   Harper's new 'legacy'. Be Chinese. Be happy. be stupid. Shop. Pat ourselves on the head. 
Let the government run the important things".

We are far too polite to say what should be said.

The fact is, this decision is a betrayal of the trust of Canadians.
This is not only an issue of sovereignty over Canadian resources,  it is an issue of lack of common sense  and short-sighted, very  poor governance.

Stephen Harper and  the  Harper Government" must resign in shame. We no longer have any confidence in this government. This agreement must be reversed.

Is that Incoming I hear?


  1. I understand there is a possibility of a legal challenge and I've already pledged money through Avaaz. I stand with you.

    1. hi Sibathehat, I think there should be a legal challenge. This is really bad governance and was a very short-sighted decision.
      Thanks for commenting, I'm sure there are millions of Canadians NOT impressed with this resources takeover. Thank you for commenting! ~R


  2. I think China has learnt it doesn't need war tactics any more to over throw the world.... And we have nearly all become so dependant upon their cheep-goods we all recycle our rubbish which finds its way into their products which we buy back..

    But enough of Politics ....
    Just dropping by Raymond to wish you and your Family a Very Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2013....
    I hope you enjoyed the experience of a Peaceful Winter Solstice..
    Blessings to you and All you do in the future..
