Harper and his sycophants have introduced a new non-disclosure agreement that intends to impose a lifetime ban on MP staffers, house officers, party leaders and caucus research groups from sharing any information about the activities of their employers. Specifically, staffers may not disclose or discuss any information about any of these groups which could be considered "politically sensitive".

Politically sensitive? Pretty much everything that goes on in these offices is politically sensitive. If you can't silence your critics, silence your friends.

Pretty scary stuff. The 'thought police' are trying to take over. Harper may have went to Mandela's memorial but that is about all he has in common with the man.

Some politicians are more like Mugabe than Mandela.

^^^ At least you recognized how anti-democratic Harper is and didn't vote for his party last election. The fact that the people gave his party a majority anyways is what I find disturbing.

From the outside looking in, it seemed odd that he was voted in. But having been in Canada for a few years now and gotten some sense what actually makes Canadians tick, it doesn't seem odd at all.

Is there a news article or similar on this? Are the Liberals opposed, or would they do the same? At the end of the day, employees can go elsewhere if they don't like the work conditions, controlling information leaks is as old as politics is.

^ Corruption is as old as politics as well. That doesn't make it right and that doesn't mean we shouldn't fight against it. Corruption thrives on secrecy and dies when exposed to the light.
