PR GeniusKevin Steel says all that needs to be said about the sheer public relations genius of Craig Docksteader. Which leaves me free to mock on other grounds. Let's find out about the Citizens Center....
We seek to improve the quality of life for all Canadians by promoting policies that foster individual initiative and personal responsibility.Nothing says individual initative like firing your staff and refusing to pay the benefits they are entitled to. Hiding behind the legal separation between the Center and the company which published Reports magazine is a grand example of taking person responsibility.

OUR MISSIONPlus, and this is an added bonus, a particular regard for the rights of owners to terminate employment without severance or holiday benefits and, in special cases - determined by applying the principles of natural justice and a measurement of Link's thumb, the natural right to repudiate contracts and refuse payment for work received.
We emphasize limited government, open democracy, free markets and the natural rights of life, free speech, religion and property.
WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACCOMPLISH?Not clear on what the hyphen between more and open means - no matter - there is nothing like a free market in which you can simply ignore the legal and the moral claims of your employees. A nation in which the consequences of no notice termination are borne on the shoulders most able to bear the weight - the employees.
We not only want a more-open democracy and freer markets, but we also envision a country in which the natural rights to life, free speech, religion and property will flourish.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS?Nice of Link to mention the Courts - his PR gunsel seems ready to suggest litigation at the drop of a pin. And, hey, I am inspired just knowing that the good people of Alberta are being offered pension advice from a guy who can't - or rather won't - pay his own former employees. Let's just hope the other media are as overwhelmed with admiration as I am.
Working together with thousands of Canadians, the Citizens Centre will develop policy, advocate reforms in public forums and in the courts, and seek to inform and inspire through our regular publications and other media.
More later....Still to come...What Makes us distinct? Refederation and.....Canada Can Be Fixed including this little gem from our favorite employment scofflaw
"Judges (as a result of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms) and human-rights tribunals are also undermining the rightful authority of elected representatives. In many crucial respects, genuine democracy has ceased to function in Canada."Gosh, do you think those elected representative who passed the employment laws are feeling all that chuffed to be hectored by God's HypocriteTM?
