Harper as guilty as McGuinty in shutting down Rural Ontario!!!!!

Posted: October 4, 2012 in Uncategorized

It seems that Dalton isn’t the only Rural hater out there these days!

The Conservative Government is not “showing much love” for Northern Ontario either.

If the only prerequisite fore services to residents in this vast country is to “make a profit” then God help Canada!

If only every single service being provided to Canadian Citizens would make $$$ and show a profit, but that’s not what this country was built on!

This grand country was built on the premise that people received services that allowed them to enjoy a quality of life that included freedom, land ownership and the ability to travel from coast to coast to follow their dreams and aspirations!

NOT SO TODAY!

If one doesn’t want to move into a high density urban centre and live in a Government designed habitat which is now being called “human settlements” then your SOL and must be forced out of Rural Ontario by any means possible!

This is Agenda 21 in action! The United Nations handbook for the de-population of Rural areas in our country!

Sad to say that it now appears both Provincial and Federal Governments are in “lock step”.

Call them what you want, Left versus Right, Cons versus Libs, Tories versus Grits……………….they now both are acting in unison as TYRANTS!

Rural passenger rail on life support: Hughes

Declining services throttles transport options for businesses and public

OTTAWA – The final voyage for the Ontario Northland passenger train was a powerful reminder that the federal government has no commitment to passenger rail in northern and rural Canada, according to Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing MP, Carol Hughes.

Hughes points out that the lack of federal leadership robs the north of an affordable, reliable and environmentally friendly transportation option.  She feels it sends the wrong message about doing business in the north.

“It’s limiting for business,” said Hughes. “The ring of fire is set to open up the far north and both the federal and provincial government look short-sighted and unprepared.”

Hughes grilled the government about its lacklustre commitment in Question Period Wednesday.

“It was the Ontario Liberal government that killed the train. But all across Canada this Conservative Government is walking away from crucial railway infrastructure,” said Hughes. “Why are the Conservatives imitating the McGuinty Liberals? Where is their plan for passenger rail in northern and rural Canada?”
