Stephen Harper’s – List of plagiarism incidents

Further information: Canadian federal election, 2008#Speech plagiarism

On September 30, 2008 in Canada, a top campaign official of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party, Owen Lippert, admitted that he plagiarized a speech written on March 20, 2003 for then opposition leader Harper regarding the Party’s support for the Iraq War; the speech was copied almost verbatim from a similar speech made by then Australian Prime Minister John Howard two days earlier. This was after Liberal MP Bob Rae noticed the similarities between the two speeches several weeks before Harper called the election, but the Liberals had to wait for the video of Howard’s speech to be sent. Additionally, the Liberals also accused Harper of the same plagiarism charges for failing to acknowledge that they had been copied. As a result, Lippert resigned.[89]

Three days later, the Liberals accused Harper for plagiarizing another speech, but this time from fellow Conservative and then Ontario Premier Mike Harris. Out of 4956 words, 44 of the words in Harper’s speech, which was written on February 19, 2003 for the House of Commons, is identical to Harris’s speech, which was written on December 4, 2002 for the Montreal Economic Institute. However, it is not known who wrote Harper’s speech, unlike the speech that Harper had plagiarized from Howard.[90]

  1. The Harper government is starving the beast of departments that don’t fit into his ideological viewpoints on industry, eliminating positions, eliminating funding, closing down departments or buildings. This has a two fold effect. One, this is money the Conservatives need to help balance the budget. Two, it is eliminating voices of dissent, or any other facts that could create cracks in his vision for Canada. Now groups directly opposed to his vision, not politically, but because that is the purpose of the groups themselves, are being labelled terrorists, accused of fraud, and political scheming, only because it challenges the rhetoric of what the government is trying to do.

    Why silence environmentalists? If they’re as crazy as the governments say, why not let them say their piece and let Canadians be the judge if they’re crazy or not?

    Science has shown that reclamation in the oilsands will not work

    http://m.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/rebuilding-land-destroyed-by-oil-sands-may-not-restore-it-researchers-say/article552879/?service=mobile

    What about letting industry and the AB government dictate their own emission rules, and delaying it as long as possible, while the rest of the country has a different set of rules?

    http://business.financialpost.com/2011/05/30/canada-leaves-out-rise-in-oilsands-pollution-from-un-report/

    Why were they so quiet when they finally did release that information, and the fact that GHG from the oilsands will quadruple while in other areas it’s falling? Which will push us further and further away from the Copenhagen targets?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/01/14/oil-sands-emissions-alberta_n_4598004.html

    Why release press releases from both federal and AB governments about oilsands pollution not being a concern, if the GHG is going to quadruple?

    Why are we selling off land and resources to oligarchies in the USA, why are we spending all this money on advertising, on natural resources promotion, when the Koch brothers will make $100 billion off of our land and resources when average Canadians will never see any of this type of profit?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/21/keystone-xl-koch-brothers_n_4136491.html

    With environmental regulations gutted, and left to the whims of provinces, will we have more spills like this, that are still leaking after 9 months?

    http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/02/09/3268751/alberta-tar-sands-leaking/

    Why does the government spend taxpayers money of all of Canada, to promote a provinces resources that the province owns? Especially if other than tax dollars from the oilsands, only Alberta benefits from it?

    http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2014/01/20/ottawa_wont_release_details_for_oilsands_advertising_blitz.html

    Why is all of this money being spent, when John Kerry said that lobbying won’t alter his decision? And he says “The public has a role in this. We’re all accountable to our publics. The democratic process demands that we do that.” If only our government felt the same way.

    I’m sure the lucrative environment industry, the ones who don’t have as much to gain from expansion being approved, are really radicals and ‘ecoterrorists’. Easier to brand your opponents radicals and kooks, than to actually address valid concerns people have.

    2010 the advertising budget for natural resources canada, NRCan, was $237,000.

    The Harper government has increased its advertising spending to $16.5m in 2012 from $9m in 2011. To $40m in 2013. No other departments have had an increase in spending like that in just advertising, many other departments are facing massive cuts across the board.

    http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/may/16/canadian-government-doubles-advertising-spend-tar-sands

    We need our government to force oil companies to clean up their act, not buy their ads for them.

    While they cut funding and jobs to the DFO in stations that fall along the proposed nothern gateway pipeline that would lead in monitoring, assessments, and remediation if there was a spill.

    http://www.cbc.ca/m/touch/politics/story/1.1138481

    The government is focusing on telling the world and Canadians that we’re environmentally friendly when they should be showing it by creating and enforcing sound environmental policies not gutting them.

    Meanwhile our national debt has exploded since they took power by an additional $169 billion. I wonder if the same thing will happen in 2015 with the promise of a balanced budget as what happened with the promise to drive the debt-ratio down.

    [Link to more links to information on our deficit and debt](http://www.reddit.com/r/canada/comments/1vgy9b/hey_reddit_canada_who_are_you_all_voting_for_next/cesn0yq)

    The government is targeting environmental groups. Let us not forget that the public relations war is largely being won by those with the most money, and that compared to just the advertising budget of both the federal government and companies who are represented by CAPP (who receive far more foreign investments than NPOs), foreign donations these groups get pales in comparison.

    >Calgary-based TransCanada has hired Phil Fontaine – former national chief of the Assembly of First Nations – to help it win the support of native communities from Alberta to New Brunswick.

    I would be concerned if I was an environmental group, when the head of the watch dog for our spy agency is lobbying for enbridge.

    I would be concerned if I was first nations and instead of listening to their appeals, or trying to find some common ground, then send out ministers to convince band leaders.

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/ottawa-brings-pipelines-pitch-to-b-c-first-nations-1.1864589

    I would be worried if I were first nations, and the government when holding meetings essentially didn’t listen to you and talked past you, really only wanting to use you to bolster support and not have to worry about pesky legal battles.

    The radicals and ecoterrorists part? Not necessarily about infrastructure bombings and destruction, but just simply voicing their opposition and taking part of the regulatory hearings. The pipelines aren’t even built yet, so it can’t be a concern that they are going to destroy something that hasn’t been built. It’s the possibility that they could derail or put a wrench in their plans

    >Oliver says the groups “threaten to hijack our regulatory system to achieve their radical ideological agenda,” stack the hearings with people to delay or kill “good projects,” attract “jet-setting” celebrities and use funding from “foreign special interest groups.”

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/radicals-working-against-oilsands-ottawa-says-1.1148310

    These aren’t radicals and eco terrorists, these aren’t people threatening to blow up pipelines. These are people protesting, which is their right. These are people who care about the environment, and because it goes against the plans of our government, they are being focused on. Do the groups below have any criminal history? Have they ever committed any violent acts? Is protesting, or voicing opposition a terrorist act in the eyes of the government now?

    >Idle No More, ForestEthics, Sierra Club, EcoSociety, LeadNow, Dogwood Initiative, Council of Canadians and the People’s Summit.

    They passed legislation so that the CRA could do this…

    >The prime minister’s office directed requests for comment to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA). Noël Carisse, a spokesman for CRA, said **that since 2012** “the CRA has conducted additional review activities focused on political activities. Audits are being conducted in addition to our regular audit activities, and will include charities from across the entire spectrum of charitable activity.”

    >With his announcement this week, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has increased the concern among environmentalists that Ottawa regards them as implacable adversaries to be monitored and battled, rather than well-meaning advocates to be consulted.

    And

    >A document from the Department of Foreign Affairs listed allies of the government’s oil-sands development plans and “adversaries” that included environmental and aboriginal groups.

    You’re either with us, or you’re with the ~~pedophiles~~ ecoterrorists.

    >”Unfortunately, there are environmental and other radical groups that would seek to block this opportunity to diversify our trade,” Oliver said in an open letter.

    >”Their goal is to stop any major project no matter what the cost to Canadian families in lost jobs and economic growth. No forestry. No mining. No oil. No gas. No more hydro-electric dams.”

    From the submission that we’re commenting on:

    >The Canada Revenue Agency conducts audits for a number of reasons, including in response to outside complaints that an organization is violating federal laws for charities.

    >Environmentalists believe that is why so many of them are being singled out. Shortly after the pro-tar sands group Ethical Oil launched a public campaign in 2012 to “expose the radical foreign funded environmental groups’ activities attacking Canada’s ethical oil and industry,” Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced an $8 million effort to more deeply investigate nonprofits’ political activity.

    >Since then, Ethical Oil has filed formal complaints with the CRA about Environmental Defence, the David Suzuki Foundation and Tides Canada, saying the groups should be “stripped of their charitable status” for “engaging in partisan activity,” according to Ethical Oil’s website.

    >Ethical Oil has deep ties to both the tar sands industry and the Harper administration. In 2011, one of the group’s co-founders, Alykhan Velshi, left his job as a spokesperson for Harper’s government to help found Ethical Oil. A few months later, he left Ethical Oil and returned to the Harper administration to become director of planning in the prime minister’s office. Today, he is the director of issues management for the prime minister.

    Also interesting how Jason Kenney is paying for Ethical Oils websites…
