Well I see that Stephen Harper is about to return to work after spending the last few weeks in virtual isolation, getting his ...um... batteries recharged.
And no doubt getting ready to defend his shocking decision to gut the census. After having to be talked out of killing it.
The prime minister directed Industry Minister Tony Clement last winter to seek options from Statistics Canada on how it could make the long version of the census voluntary.
But sources say his circle's first instinct was to make the entire thing voluntary — both the short census and the now controversial long form.
Good luck. If I was him I'd plead insanity eh?
Because he's going to need all the sympathy he can get when Canadians get this pain in their wallets.
The Con Census: Now not just useless but more EXPENSIVE !!!
And BTW.... how are the Cons going to claim it's just a failure to communicate?
Conservative insiders are slowly acknowledging they haven't done a good job of persuading the public. They say communication of their reasons has been bungled from the beginning — first internally and then publicly.
After this latest outrage.
The cost of running the prime minister's office will jump by over $1 million this year because of additional expenditures on communication.
Gawd. I knew that Stephen Harper lives in a world of his own...
But how many more gazillions of dollars are we supposed to spend to try to make him look
Of course the BIG question now is whether Harper will be able to admit he was wrong. Tell Canadians he's just a wonky idiot who thought the census was inconvenient, because he didn't know what he was talking about.
Instead of a dangerous ideological maniac who would
So he can plunge the country into the darkness of ignorance, and skin it beyond recognition.
Golly. I LOVE this story. Is it idiocy or is it insanity?
He can't win. We can't lose.
But I call it KARMA...
