Harper Confidential: The Secrets He Doesn't Want Canadians To know
As we know Stephen Harper is preparing to pass Bill C-51 so he can turn Canada into a police state and spy on us all.
Because he does want to dig up as many dirty secrets as possible, use them against his opponents.
And finally achieve the state of Total Control the voices in his head have been demanding for so long. Because they don't call him Ol' Handcuffs for nothing eh?
But it seems that Great Ugly Leader doesn't like the idea of Canadians finding out his dirty secrets. So he's making that a terrorist offence.
The federal government will invoke a clause used in terrorism trials on Friday as part of its fight to keep information about the prime minister’s family from being made public.
Federal Justice Department lawyers filed a factum on Wednesday that states they will invoke Section 37 of the Canada Evidence Act in an effort to block media organizations from unsealing documents containing allegations that the RCMP leaked secrets about Stephen Harper’s family.
And while one might naturally wonder what those family secrets might be, or NOT...
Because they might be too horrible for most Canadians to handle.
It's easy to understand why Harper is so desperate to stop any more secrets from leaking out.
After the way the ones being exposed at the Duffy trial are embarrassing him.
Stephen Harper's name surfaced at the Mike Duffy trial Thursday as court heard from a string of contractors who were paid through a taxpayer-funded account that the suspended senator allegedly used to skirt finance rules.
Because let's face it this is embarrassing...
Last week, a government source told The Canadian Press that the makeup services Harper received that day weren't paid for by taxpayers. On Thursday, Lambert told a different story.
"On this occasion of the G8, did Prime Minister Harper pay you anything for the services he received, or did you take the $300 to be payment in respect to the services you provided the prime minister?" asked Duffy's lawyer Donald Bayne.
"Yes, your latter," Lambert answered.
Gawd. First we find out that the two men were so close Stephen Harper considered him his BEST appointment. Then we found out they shared the same makeup artist. Now we find out that Duffy paid to make Harper look pretty?
If that's possible...
But the good news is those grubby little secrets are already taking a toll on Harper's popularity.
And the best news is the trial is going to go on for a long long time.
The prime minister’s former chief of staff Nigel Wright once referred to the Mike Duffy affair as “Chinese water torture.” It appears the drip, drip, drip of information at Duffy’s trial will spill over its scheduled end date.
So he will not be able to hope that Canadians will forget the trial.
It will follow him all the way to the next election.
Dip, drip, drip.
And it will help bring him down...
How ironic eh?
The man who would creep our secrets.
May very well be destroyed by his own...
