Duffy's Revenge and the Ashes of Stephen Harper's Legacy
I'm pretty sure Mike Duffy must dream of telling Stephen Harper what he thinks of him.
Dream of suing him, and his little monsters in the PMO, and his Senate stooges, for what they did to him.
But his legal options are limited.
His lawyer says he is battling serious health issues.
So it probably was his last hurrah.
But what a hurrah it was.
He did get his revenge, he did help bring down the monster and his foul un-Canadian regime.
And as even the Con-friendly L. Ian MacDonald admits, he has helped leave Stephen Harper's legacy in ashes.
Vaillancourt’s assessment of the Harper PMO’s behaviour in the Duffy affair was nothing short of devastating. These are not the sorts of things Canadian judges say about federal leaders every day of the week:
In only six months, Stephen Harper’s legacy has been dismantled significantly by the Liberals — especially in their budget — and by the Supreme Court in its rulings disallowing Conservative criminal justice laws on time-served and minimum sentencing.
The Vaillancourt ruling makes the Harper PMO look like the Nixon White House — a crew of unindicted co-conspirators.
And left Boss Harper looking like his hero Richard Nixon...
With a closet instead of a helicopter, to try to escape his final humiliation.
What more could we ask for?
Mike Duffy was an unusual chosen instrument of justice. And his lawyer and the judge did all the heavy lifting.
But his trial did help write the final chapter of Stephen Harper's foul regime. Or drive a final nail into his coffin.
And for that we must be grateful...
