Gag reflex

Doctors and research scientists are some of the most apolitical, small-c conservative people in the country -- now even they have reached their gag limit with the Harper Conservative agenda.
But their naivety is touching:
Dr. Williams said that while it was important to influence public opinion, her organization is really after a formal discussion with federal officials.
“What we really want at the end of the day is an opportunity to have a discussion with Minister Kenney and Citizenship and Immigration about what this means and what we think might be reasonable,” Dr. Williams said. “We're still requesting a full reversal of the cuts and we'll continue to push for that opportunity for a dialogue.”
Do they actually think that discussing this with Minister Thug is going to make a dime's worth of difference? Prepare to be disappointed, Dr. Williams.  It was the Liberals who thought that governing meant trying to do what people wanted done, but those days are long gone.
