Uh oh. I knew it. I leave the country for a few days and Stephen Harper tries to pull a fast one. When I Ieft he was pretending to be a Liberal...and a nice guy.
Now I see he's pretending to be the Governor General.
Harper managed to get the military to give him a salute that's normally reserved for the Governor-General. As Heritage Minister James Moore explains in the video, this was something that the Prime Minister apparently wanted.
Caramba. Is this Canada or Honduras?
And where was Bruno when we needed him?
But seriously people..... we have a problem.
Our Parliament is a gong show.
Our government doesn't know what it's doing. The economy is tanking. Our international reputation is shattered.
And now the most sinister and authoritarian Prime Minister in Canadian history is organizing military salutes to HIMSELF?
Golly. Who does Great
Oh wait. We don't have to imagine.
Whenever the election does come, Harper has one plan in mind for afterward: the elimination of public funding to political parties. A punishing blow to his opponents. Sure, the idea caused a showdown last autumn, the adviser said. “But in retrospect, we should have stuck to our guns. It was strategically smart. It’s still strategically smart. We’re going to run again on it. And we’re going to do it, if we win the next election. It’s coming.”
We have been warned. Again. For the sake of our democracy. For the sake of our precious Canadian values. Exile this absurd little Napoleon to the Fraser Institute.
Before he destroys our country ....
