As always, the Great and Powerful Atwood is spot on.
I started pulling out quotes from Margaret Atwood’s latest opinion piece on the upcoming election in The Star, but I was copy and pasting the whole article, so just go and read it for yourself.
Alright, one quote:
On women: plain speaking, no double-talk. This government is deeply traumatized by women’s reproductive organs. At the G20, Harper claimed to be concerned about “maternal and child health,” noting that “500,000 women die each year in pregnancy and 9 million children die before the age of five.” But his government is defunding Planned Parenthood, an international organization that works with the poorest and most marginalized women and children to improve their survival chances. (Yes, I know, Bev Oda says she just hasn’t got around to the Planned Parenthood application for the past 18 months; but as Miss Manners says, no answer is an answer.)
