2007, "Year of the Liar"

CFP: Welcome to 2007, ‘The Year of the Liar’ by Judi McLeod , 10/12/07
When historians record 2007, it will likely go down as ‘The Year of the Liar’.

Here at home, Ontarians returned to a second majority government, Premier Dalton McGuinty, who first came into power by promising no taxes, but who after election called a series of new taxes anything but the truth. Mind you, it didn’t much help that Opposition Leader John Tory declared that taxpayers should fund Islamic, Hindu, Jewish and other faith-based schools just like public and Catholic ones.

But the Premier of Ontario (thank Heaven) has less influence on the world than Al Gore, last night awarded by the Nobel Committee in Norway the Peace Prize for being “probably the single individual who has done most to create a greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted” to climate change. Joint winner of the prize was the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Make that the arm of the same UN, never brought to justice for the world’s largest corruption, the Saddam Hussein-enriching Oil-for-Food scandal.

Before choking on your morning coffee, Yassar Arafat and Kofi Annan were recipients of the same “Peace” Prize.
