The Harper Con­ser­va­tive gov­ern­ment’s vi­sion for Canada’s fu­ture? Cuts, cuts, and more cuts. Canada’s bor­der se­cu­rity ser­vices? Slashed. Canada’s en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion ser­vices? Sliced. Canada’s food safety ser­vices? Butchered. Vet­er­ans Af­fairs? Nine Vet­er­ans Af­fairs of­fices shut down and front-line ser­vices gone. Cana­di­ans who paid into Em­ploy­ment In­sur­ance de­nied ben­e­fits. Canada’s public search and res­cue ser­vices? Sys­tem­at­i­cally dis­man­tled. Es­sen­tial public ser­vices threat­ened with­out re­gard for the safety and wel­fare of mil­lions of Cana­di­ans.
