  1. The current government of Canada has been doing a ‘divide and conquer’ strategy: misinformation dissemination; hacking our websites/trolling/robocalls; joining with ‘commerce’ representatives worldwide to change ideologies & trade agreements; silencing scientists/military/civil service/cbc; omnibus bills to bury damaging legislation; and generally hog-tying citizens from information which affect us greatly.

    How to bring back our country and unite those registered/unregistered parties?
    We need a huge pamphleteering party to open our eyes – emergency alerts!

    • Thanks Sharon. You’ve hit upon some of the more blatant actions of the Harper government. That’s the $60,000 dollar question, how to bring back our country and unite the people so they will regain their faith and optimism. A solid platform that addresses all the outstanding issues is critical and that’s what the CPP plans to formulate.

    • James. The name is “Arthur”. “art” is something you hang on the wall. 🙂 Things are unfolding as they should. Truth is expanding and the evil in this world is being exposed daily.

      How are you doing?
