The Cat's out of the bag...

Mr. Harper has announced the compensation of all Hep-C victims, outside the 1986-1990 window of the previous compensation package.

Here are some more details from the PMO.

This is good news, which actually directly impacts a member of my extended family.

    HArper sold out. Compensation should be based on fault. Red Cross was at fault after 1990 because HEP-C tests were available at they did not use them. Prior to 1990 there was no way to protect the blood supply from HEP-C. There was no fault by the Mulroney government or Rec Cross at that time.

    It is not the role of government to wipe everybody's noses. Compensation should not be given for every complaint. Compensation should be granted where there is fault.

    Payment in these circumstances is political pandering and a disappointment.

    ryan, were you born yesterday? Of course every decision of a politician is calculated with a veiw to voter support. Of course, HArper is trying to form a majority government and he has to pander to get there. Sheesh, I can't believe how silly some people are in their view of politics.

    Yes Ryan, we know. The photographer on Harper's plane when he picked up the lebanese was actually an undercover CSIS ninja, and he wasn't there for a photo op.

    thank you.

    It's Ok for the Liberals to compensate some of those victims...but God forbid those evil neo-cons compensate all of them.

    As usual anon can hide behind his non-name and spew stupid shit.

    Today on Coren-Live a Liberal MP tried to take the credit because his Party spent years on this settlement, he then asked why it took Harper so long to introduce the liberal promise.

    Wow, only a Liberal would run you over with their car and then return to take you to the Emergency Room at a Hospital and before you're rushed in for surgery
    the Liberal asks you to remember to tell the Police that they drove you to the Hospital even though they could have drove off and left you there.

    Of course the Liberal then changed the subject and asked why Harper was too quick to settle the Lumber issue that Liberals dragged out for 7 years.
    The NDP guest (Peggy Nash) blamed most problems on lower taxes and not enough levels of Government to employed troubled youth that use guns.

    The show should have been on the Comedy network channel 44 .

    Given the preponderance of 80s washout standup comics they present, I'd say it wouldn't miss a beat in their scheduling.

    Harper's doing the right thing...he may be accused of buying votes, but to those affected it's still small consolation to what happened...

    Yes no one was at fault in this tragedy, but needing a transfusion during that period is no reason to say too bad for you...this compensation should make all Canadian's proud...

    Compassion for the chronicly ill. More evidence of the secret Conservative agenda.
