The NDP needs to be a lot more courageous

So the NDP are promising to cancel cuts to the CBC. Wow, what social action! What courage! What i would prefer to hear is that they are cancelling all subsidies to the fossil fuel industry and reinvesting in renewable energy research. Of course they will not do this because they  know just how tied we are to he resource industries. Most of the investors large and small in the country, all voters, have these stocks so not going to happen. So if not that then let’s see them say they will cancel  Harpers revision of the Navigable Waters Act, stop the CRA from muzzling charities free speech, raise bloody taxes across the board not just on corporations so we can fix infrastructure and refund social programs, stop the police state surveillance programs currently being instituted not just for so-called Jihadis but for all of us  and “really” work toward irradicating child poverty in this country.  But the NDP don’t have the stones for this, not anymore. Frankly I could care less about the CBC
