  • Harper was right . . .we won't recognize Canada by the time he is done with it.

  • Imagine: a Minister of the Crown who deals with the leaders of other nations, asking for Canada's official Coat of Arms to be put on his business card instead of some logo.

    And expecting other Ministers to show up at events where they're expected to perform official duties.

    The shame of it all.

    Agreed; unilingual cards for federal ministers is shameful.
    The removal of the Canada+flag logo doesn't bother me one bit; omitting an official language is stupid, if for no other reason than the obvious antagonism towards Qu├ębec. Creating a controversy which could have been easily avoided is pretty, well, you said it - shameful.

    And the gold foil is totally unnecessary and is just ego-tripping.

  • I remember when Harper was in opposition he was against this kind of thing. Now he defends it. No principles...just positioning based on whose ox is being gored.

    I hope somebody in the LPC is keeping track of all these and uses them in ads, etc to define the Conservatives. Pick, pick, pick.

    And to remove the Canadian flag when another Con is wanting to pass a law that nobody can be denied flying the Canadian flag.

    What gold foil?

    The facts as I've been told them are gold-coloured paint/ink, not foil, is used in the production of these cards.

  • I haven't seen the cardz or visited the printerz. Globe & Mail, CTV, and MacLeanz say "gold foil".

    Really though, whether it's ink or gold foil, it's "breaking the government's rules", which is really the point of the matter.

  • With all their more serious transgressions I can't believe they spent an entire day talking business cards.

    Everyone is playing into Harper's hands.

    Last election every day that "Harper's staff rude to girl at rally" was the headline was a day that something like "Harper lied about the economy" was not.

    I'm telling you - people's blind hatred for Harper is working against them. Making mountains out of molehills makes his mountains look like molehills.

    And besides, anyone who voted for Harper thinking he'd be any better than the Martin/Chretien/Mulroney in these respects is a delusional partisan that can't be reached anyway.

    I only care about facts.

    Others here only care about speculation and poorly-written stories which they don't actually bother to read, almost all of which acknowledge that foil hasn't been used on these business cards.

    But since when have those on the Left bothered with facts?

    Exactly as often as those on the "Right"...!
