The Main Reason Stephen Harper Must Be Defeated
This photo was released today by the Con Ministry of Propaganda, and is apparently designed to portray Stephen Harper as a leader bearing the burden of governing this country as only he can.
The man with the lonely job of steering this country through a dark and perilous time.
But to me it represents something completely different.
It's the portrait of a monster, who is threatening to destroy this country.
The sinister representation of a man The Tyee calls a serial abuser of power.
Stephen Harper and his Conservatives have racked up dozens of serious abuses of power since forming government in 2006. From scams to smears, monkey-wrenching opponents to intimidating public servants like an Orwellian gorilla, some offences are criminal, others just offend human decency.
And the evidence of that abuse couldn't be more shocking, and is of course the main reason he must defeated.
For our country might be able to survive his serial incompetence, or the way he has shamed us in the eyes of the world.
But it will not long survive his assault on our democracy and our precious Canadian values.
One day when this long nightmare is finally over we will have to ask ourselves how we could have allowed something like that to happen.
But now is not the time for that.
Now is the time to unite to defeat that ghastly tyrant.
Before he destroys our Canada...
You know, I am now faraway in the north of Scotland.
And although I love this rugged place where the North Sea crashes against the rebel highlands, I've never felt so far from home.

But at least here, in a place soaked with the blood of those who fought for centuries to be free, one thing seems blindingly obvious.
Either we defeat those fascist Cons.
Or our country will be lost...
