This is nothing more than Mel Hurtig shooting off his whackjob far left agenda, and it is nothing new either.
If you take a bit of time to do some research, Hurtig originally ran unsuccessfully as a Liberal in the early 1970s and got soundly beaten. Trudeau
was Prime Minister. Shortly thereafter he formed the Committee for an Independent Canada . . . again this was during Trudeau's heyday. Stephen
'TheEvil' Harper was six.
Hurtig formed the National Party of Canada in 1992 . . . ran in an election. No candidate fielded by the National Party of Canada was ever elected.
Hurtig got in a pissing match with the main funder of the party and the whole thing fell apart in 1994 amid questions regarding party finances.
'Poof' goes the NPC
Basically, the whole thing was formed by Hurtig and his cohorts in response to the Mulroney Regime's North American Free Trade Agreement
He was back at it in 2004
claiming the US missile defense system was the
road to hell.
he continued claiming Canada was being sucked into the US vortex via the
efforts of political and economic elite.
Hurtig's the Energizer Bunny
when it comes to this stuff . . . leading us to his claim that
Harper's already signed over the deed and just needs a majority to complete the sellout.
The reality is, Hurtig's made a career and a whack of dough spouting doom and gloom for Canada, our economy and our way of life.
Clearly, from Canada's economic standing, paltry per capita national debt, stable banking system, relatively crime free citizenship and in general a
widely accepted great place to live, Hurtig's been chicken-littling
this mantra for decades and it has yet to manifiest itself in a nasty way
north of the 49th.
