If Stephen Harper thought he could get away with punishing the scientist Tony Turner for daring to write and and sing the song Harperman, he must be sorry now.
For as I said yesterday it is an outrageous assault on freedom of expression.
And as I predicted it has only made the song even more popular.
When I wrote that post Harperman had 48,000 views, a day later it has more than 186.000
It's still growing and it's gone viral.

Everybody it seems had something to say.
Including the Simpsons...
And of course I did too eh?
It seems we now have the perfect song to serenade a dictator. http://t.co/X2TKOri5iT #cdnpoli #Harperman #elxn42 pic.twitter.com/90rbEPePdf— Simon (@montrealsimon) August 28, 2015
t seems Canadians are getting tired of seeing scientists getting bullied, muzzled or fired...
Like so many others in this country.
And we now have a protest song to make a dictator's ears ring...
We want you gone (gone, gone)
You and your pawn (pawn, pawns)
No more con (con, cons) Time to move on (on, on)
Get out of town (town, town )
Don’t want you round (round, round)
Harperman, it’s time for you to go.
Sing it proudly, sing it loudly,share it widely.
And on September 17 sing it all over the country.
It's the Stop Harper song we needed to help make us a movement.
And it will help destroy him...
