He was hoping to build this monstrous monument to himself on land reserved for a new Federal Court building, expected to be named after Pierre Trudeau.
He was hoping it would be a kick in the face of the Supreme Court, and a final insult to the leader he once called a "tired out little old man," in one of the most disgusting obits ever written.
But today the Liberal government announced the ghastly monument to the Victims of Communism will be moved.
The Liberal government is pressing ahead with a controversial monument to victims of communism – but it will be redesigned and built farther west of Parliament Hill than originally planned.

The government will now hold consultations on a new design. The federal budget for the project has been reduced to $1.5-million, which will be matched by private donations, for a total budget of $3-million.
The previous Conservative government had promised $3-million in federal funds and expected the total cost to exceed $5-million. As a result, new proposals are expected to be considerably smaller than what has been proposed to date.

As is my hope that somewhere Pierre Trudeau must be having a good laugh...
For Stephen Harper was indeed no Great Leader.
And the only monument he deserves is a prison cell with his name on it.
And the everlasting contempt of Canadians...
