The proposed Mother Canada monument out in Cape Breton is creating quite a stir.
And really, why wouldn't it?
I mean, who makes this shit up?
But Mother Canada is just the lead-off batter in Big Steve's trifecta of gauche war memorials. After despoiling the pristine shoreline of Cape Breton with Mother Canada, the Harper gang hope to visit another episode of wanton gauchery on downtown Ottawa.
Meet the memorial to Victims of Communism. As far as I can tell, all the victims of communism were communists, so why do we need to build them a monument on monumentally valuable real estate in downtown Ottawa?
But wait... just because you don't live in Cape Breton or Ottawa, and there's zero chance that your morning walk will expose you to one of those Harperite aberrations, Big Steve's got more in store!
Yup, 250 unsuspecting Canadian communities will become home to derelict Afghan war wagons, as a memorial to our great victory over those scumbag murdering Taliban.
As the clock ticks down to the next federal election, Canadians should be asking themselves if all these Harperite memorials truly represent their country.
