    From the same Dylan song quoted at the top of the piece, I wish that for just one time You could stand inside my shoes And just for that one moment I could be you Yes, I wish that for just one time You could stand inside my shoes You’d know what a drag it is To see you

    Great article. It's no wonder today's youth are so disillusioned with politicans and it seems politicans are getting worse and worse, no respect for the voters.

    I can't imagine anyone with self respect, morals and ethics, could ever support this, corrupt, deceitful, thieving, monster "Harper Government"? Harper was Policy Chief for his, Northern Foundation Party of 1989. It was said, Harper is a Neo-Nazi Reformer, linked with Christian Fundamentalists and Nazi-intellectuals. This is perhaps true. Harper certainly fits the profile, of an abusive Dictator. Herr Harper also permits his henchmen, to cheat to win too. The only way Provinces can stop being given to Communist China is, to get the hell out of "Harper's Canada". This country isn't Canada anymore anyhow. Let Harper, Ottawa and Alberta, be their own country. I am sick to death of being thieved from, to support a Fascist regime.

    In fact, the most common lament one hears these days from long-time senators of both political stripes is the Harper appointees are nothing more than cheerleaders, tossing reasoned debate and committee work over the deck in favour of boosting the man who gave them the job. http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/02/11/why_mike_duffy_has_a_big_target_on_his_back_tim_harper.html

    Penashue like all Con Mps dont represent the people of Canada any more. They now dictate to Canadians what the gov will or wont do in-spite of us. That makes Canadians the dumbest people on earth for not standing up to them. We no longer have a democracy because Canadians are not represented by our MPs.

    it is so good to see our news people pointing out the ongoing score orchestrated by this 'winner' in that one of many districts during that nefarious election which may well become an ubethca for historians as the crossroad where Canada sold its democratic soul

    so what is new this has been happening for years, but you did not mind when you benefited in tax breaks, and allowed housing, food jobs, health and education benefits through those jobs, whilst other people less fortunate could not even get jobs, maybe the Harper government is on the right track and getting rid of past felons who took away rights for Aboriginals, First Nations, and representing the poor You Canadians are spoiled have you ever been homeless, not been able to get jobs, not been able to get your health or education which provides your sustenance, well all I can say is it is about time that the past people in power gets a whiff of what it is like on the other side of the fence, and actually trying to end the abuses against immigrants FN and aboriginals. That is comply within the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and respect everyone.s right to equality.

    Penashue resigned becasue Elections Canda was going to prevent him from being an MP. It's like breaking up with your girlfriend when you heard she was going to break up with you anyhow.

    Just another reformacon (Harper's bidder) playing fast and loose with democracy and blaming the 'help'. They've never accepted that when things go wrong, it is never okay to blame someone working for them. They've never accepted that the buck stops with them, including Harper. Period. And they don't just exist in Nfld. & Labrador, they're all across this once fine country. Sad, pathetic bunch, the whole lot of them.

    This is a good artical,well written. If the people of the great land returns Peter to parliment they will loose respect in the rest of Canada. It's time now to stand up and be counted has desent people.
