With recent or pending federal reviews into both environmental regulation and charitable giving, we can expect more attacks and more attempts to silence those who believe that we must at least have a discussion about our priorities before selling out our country to anyone who wants a piece. Maybe it's time to get radical!Sounds like Dave is very worried that the outfit that bears his name is about to have its charitable status revoked.
My favourite part, though, is when he whines that he and his ilk aren't getting a fair hearing:
It's bad enough when our government and its ethical oil and media supporters don't tell the truth, but it's worse when they don't even offer rational arguments. Their increasing attacks on charitable organizations and Canadians from all walks of life show that if they can't win with facts, they'll do everything they can to silence their critics. And we thought conservative-minded people valued free speech!We do, we we! That's why we're thrilled that some media outlets allow those in favour of Canada's ethical oil to have their say, and to criticize those who "twist" the truth by employing the pejorative "tar sands." The people who have a problem with free speech, as always, are those on the left, like Dave, who cannot bear to be contradicted when they alone have truth and virtue and Gaia on their side.
