Blatant abuse of power

As of right now, the opposition parties are preparing a motion that will vote non-confidence for the Paul Martin Government. Essentially, at this point, Martin is only filling the Prime Minister position; indirectly he has no authority in Canada because of the impending collapse of his government.

However, tomorrow night Paul Martin is delivering a televised national address to the nation. Although it is unknown what exactly he will say, insiders say that he is trying to 'set the facts' straight to Canadians regarding his government’s implication in the sponsorship scandal.

Apparently talking to Canadians through the democratic House of Commons is not an option. For the past month, Paul Martin has not answered, in earnest, any question that has been asked to him in parliament regarding his involvement in the corruption and criminality of his party's actions.

With the opposition parties on the verge of voting non-confidence, Paul Martin has no authority in the government right now, and by delivering a nationally televised address so close to an election, he is blatantly abusing his position for the betterment of his imploding career, not the betterment of democracy in Canada. Canadians should not have to hear anymore excuses of why his government is corrupt, or how his government is cleaning it up, or why he thinks that his party’s vision is the only vision for Canada.

Paul Martin and his party are corrupt and he knows it. He is lying through his teeth regarding his involvement in this scandal and for him to do it on live national television is a shame to not only our Country, but to his party, to the parliament, and the democratic process. If Paul Martin wants to speak directly to Canadians he should tell us that he will call an election immediately and Canadians should judge this man, and his corrupt party, accordingly.

Furthermore, Canadian taxpayers are once again footing the bill for this criminal organization. We should not be required to pay for this ‘air time’ so that he can tell us how corrupt his party is; this is absolutely ridiculous. In the past, Prime Ministers’ used the televised address only in a national emergency. However, the Liberal party is imploding because of its corruption has been exposed; this is NOT a national emergency, this is democracy in TRUE form.

If Martin uses this address for partisan politics then he will be subservient in defeating democracy in Canada. For a man who doesn’t have the courage to face Parliament after he was accused of implication in the sponsorship scandal, and for someone who denies the right of the opposition parties their right to hold his government accountable, this blatant abuse of power is truly unbelievable. Clamouring to power by begging to Canadians, on national television, to let him continue to govern is undeniably one of the most embarrassing, pathetic, and cowardly political acts I have ever seen.

Paul Martin is deliveing this address for one reason only: to save his career and the future of his corrupt, shameless, and criminal organization commonly referred to as the Liberal party of Canada.

Mr. Martin you have lost all moral authority to govern; you should be removed from office immediately.

Very well put. I agree totally. The Liberal Party must be voted out asap and then the Canadian body politic must be cleaned up.

I think that Paul himself may actually be cleaner than most of the Liberals involved in this terrible deception. That being said he's a step above many of his critics for honesty and respectability (In my opinion). Just the same, if it goes to a Vote, Unless I see something to change my opinion, I think I'll vote green party. This may be their best chance ever to gain a couple of seats.
