Harper Won't Be Taking Any Shit From Laid Off Oil Sands Workers

I find that reassuring in these times of economic uncertainty. Last thing we need is the Kitsilano commies getting across the Rockies and stirring up a revolution.

"In terms of the unemployed, of which we have over a million-and-a-half, don't feel particularly bad for many of these people. They don't feel bad about it themselves, as long as they're receiving generous social assistance and unemployment insurance."

- Stephen Harper, 1997 Speech to the (US) Council for National Policy

You can read the rest of the speech here.

In other news, Canadian unemployment hits a 7-year high. Lazy bastards.
