This site was launched in May, 2012 and then went into a hiatus in July.
It’s a new year and the ruling elites are continuing to do things that piss us all off. Time for a CLASS RAGE relaunch!
We have the unfolding disaster that is Harper’s Ombnibus budget bill. We have the McGuinty government in Ontario beating up on Ontario’s teachers and education workers. Then in a move worthy of Stephen Harper, he hung up his socks and then prorogued the legislature.
Here in Toronto, the home of Class Rage Towers we have a mayor who couldn’t quite figure out that when everyone and his uncle is telling you that you’re in a conflict of interest situation, that you might in fact be in a conflict of interest. It took a judge slapping Mayor Ford on the wrist for him to figure this one out.
Harper gave a special Christmas gift to Canada’s worst employers in the form of Bill C-377, a bill so intrusive in nature that every file clerk and janitor who happens to work in a union office will have their salary published on the Canada Revenue Agency website. And, if that file clerk or janitor happens to pick up a marker and a piece of cardboard and writes “Harper Sux” on it that will become a “political” expense instead of a collective bargaining expense and will have to be accounted for separately.
Keeping a list of gun owners was an invasion of privacy. But, publishing the salary of a file clerk in a union office is not. Welcome to Harperland!
Justin Bieber didn’t have to go on a hunger strike to have a chat with the Prime Minister. But if you happen to be the chief of an aboriginal community where people are forced to live in third world conditions you do.
Maybe we can convince Peter McKay to let the Prime Minister borrow his private search and rescue helicopter so that he can pay Chief Theresa Spence a visit eh?
