It's almost unbelievable that a Canadian Prime Minister could ignore the suffering of so many.
But six days after a massive ice storm struck, and although tens of thousands of people are still without power from Ontario to New Brunswick.
This is all Stephen Harper has had to say...or TWEET...since the crisis began.
Along with this one:

Because some victims are more politically useful than others eh?
But then of course, he's not his usual self...
He's a mess. He's desperate. He's making it up as he goes along.
And the last thing he needs is somebody asking him about this warning.
A Toronto Hydro vulnerability study published last year warned that climate change could result in more severe freezing rain storms, increasing the risk of major power outages.The study, published in September, 2012, says warmer winter temperatures can increase the intensity and quantity of freezing rain and wet snow, which can damage tree branches and overhead wires.
Not when he's a climate change denier, and he's waging war on the environment.
More than $100 million in cuts are underway at the federal department in charge of protecting Canada’s water and oceans, despite recommendations from top bureaucrats that it needs to increase spending for both environmental and economic reasons.
So soon we won't know know whether we're drinking water or radioactive sewage eh?
Or floating in it like he is...
For he himself is a force of destruction, an ideological freak of nature, who is leading us to disaster, and this country as we know it to extinction.
And I think the time has to seriously consider how we can make absolutely sure he is defeated and driven from power.
And how we can ALL contribute to that great mission, or as Lorne at Politics and its Discontents writes, assume that responsibility.
The answer is not turning off. It is becoming more involved in order to challenge what is wrong.
Because surely it must be clear by now that failure is not an option.
You know tonight, when I saw how the ducks were huddled together trying to shelter from the bitter cold in a tiny hole in the ice...
And I thought of all those Canadians trying to keep warm in their darkened homes.
It reminded me again how harsh this country can be, how we simply can't afford a Prime Minister like Stephen Harper who would destroy everything that protects us.
And how the has time has finally come to take action and end this nightmare once and for all.
Replace this Harperland winter of destruction with another Maple Spring.
And as we once did.
Turn anger into RESISTANCE...
