Roque Page Brigette DePape Wants an Arab Spring

The page who disrupted the Throne Speech on Friday has sure been  having her 15 minutes of fame giving interviews all weekend long to the left wing media party even missing her convocation ceremonies yesterday. calling  for an Arab Spring here in Canada and shamefully they egg her on. She like the media party doesn't like the Harper government.

Maybe she should have a chat with some who have been in the Middle East during the protests.  Someone like ABC News reporter Lara Logan who was viciously and violently sexually assaulted right in Egypt's Tahrir Square by a mob of thugs.

In Syria, Arab spring has resulted in more than 1000 of Syrian's own citizens being murdered.  More have been arrested or wounded in many household raids conducted by  evil President Bashar al-Assad's thugs. A13yr old boy  was tortured and killed. His body was mutilated. 

This is only a couple of examples of "Arab spring" There is much more of this violence that isn't being reported.   People in the Middle East are literally dying for a  democracy like ours. That's what I thnk she doesn't get. We are truly blessed.  So what in the heck does she want?

She should be proud and greatful that she lives in a country shes has the freedom to voice her opinion and to peacefully protest any other time and place without any threat to her life but during  the Throne Speech in the Senate was inapprioate.We just had a free and democratic election that those in the Middle East are dying for and if she's not happy about the result, she has a chance in 4yrs if she wants to change it.  Even a former page who left a comment on David Akin's blog is disgusted by her action.

As a former parliamentary page (in the House of Commons), I felt completely betrayed Miss DePape's protest.

In order to serve Parliament as a page, one swears an oath to uphold and serve the dignity of Parliament. She swore to serve Parliament in a non-partisan and impartial manner. With her protest, Miss DePape has now betrayed the very Parliament that she swore to serve.

When you put on that uniform, you are representing the institution of parliament itself. It is a privilege and an honour, and if she wasn't willing to live up to the trust that was placed in her she should have resigned her position.

There is a place for protest in our political system, but sullying and dishonouring the reputation of our parliamentary page programs is not the way to participate in it. As a result, Parliamentarians will start distrusting the pages, ensuring none are nearby when they have a politically sensitive conversation, and refusing to trust them to deliver notes and letters to other Parliamentarians.

I have always been so proud of the role that pages play in our political system, and it was an immense honour to have been selected as a page. Representing our Parliament in a neutral and non-partisan manner is a vital requirement for pages.

I am ashamed that another page could do such a thing to dishonour the office of a Parliamentary page. She has let down all former and current pages in Canada.
Sadly Brigette DePape is just one example of  what's being taught in our schools and these kids are our future leaders and it's troubling to say the least. Scary!


  1. Brigette requires a brain alignment immediately.
    Someone help her out!

    E Mac

  2. What kind of sensitive and secret information do these pages have access to?

    Do they stand by during cabinet meetings? Caucus?

    Do we need to have csis do the vetting of these students?

  3. I have to wonder if the twit really delivered letters etc to other mps, without first making copies to lead to the media.
    It is too bad that all current pages will now be subject to increased supervision and suspicion.
    And to think the Public Service has offered her a job. Why, do they need another twit to try and embarass the government.
    Hopefully that is one place the finance minister and Tony Clement will start serious cuts.

  4. Do we need to have csis do the vetting of these students?

    Almost seems like it,Anony.

    And to think the Public Service has offered her a job. Why, do they need another twit to try and embarass the government.Hopefully that is one place the finance minister and Tony Clement will start serious cuts.

    I hope so too,MaryT. It sure would be long overdue. Seem like the snivel service has become leftist activists since the Conservatives took office in 2006. Not good they're supposed to be non-partisan and carry out the agenda whoever is the government.

  5. I look at her as a victim of what we call our education system. The leftist indoctrination of our children starts in prekindergarten and is in its full glorious bloom when university is reached. It would not surprise me if she starts to receive awards from teachers union locals from around Canada. Take a look at this link as a bit of what our education system is doing. It is an American video but I think it is more of a problem in Canada then in the States.

  6. She has put a 'dark' cloud over the pagers' program. Tight security and search may be warranted for the safety of of parliament, mps and innocent employees who are dedicated to their work.
    The sense of eyes following the every movement of pagers in the HOC will be felt by the pagers themselves.

    Trusting the pagers with sensitive documents will have to be taken seriously.

    I don't think that this pager has a clue what 'the arab uprising is all about. If she did, she would look like a complete ass, because what she, us, canadians have- a democratic country is what the middle east want as well.

  7. Just do a google search of her name but filter out dates prior to June 1st 2011 and it is amazing what you find. She has published articles on Ed Broadbent's foundation's website (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives).

    Also posted articles against Canadian mining companies on "Dominion News Cooperative".

    After digging thru a few articles, one gets a sense that she is one of the dreamy activists with social agendas and no concept of reality.

    Amazing how the main stream media has seemed to missed her background.

    In the Soviet Union she would have been used as a propaganda tool. Hero of the Soviet Union.

    She will live in infamy at (page headquarters).

    She has destroyed the integrity of the parliamentary page institution.

    There will be a picture of her on the wall with the caption "selfishly stupid" to remind future pages of the trust and standing they have lost because of her actions.

    Some may curse her for the body cavity searches that will SOON be required before entry to the house.

    All for 15 minutes of fame ...shame!

  9. Some may curse her for the body cavity searches that will SOON be required before entry to the house.

    Anonymous, I really hope that the other pagers say something out loud to her on radios, television. etc. because if they don't, it will seem that they approve of her.

    That twit ruined the integrity of other pagers because they most probably be tar with the same brush.

  10. yes the children never turn out the way you want them to....i imagine you can expect the same from the new majority...she actually got the same charge harper got ....contempt


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
