Well he's off to the Summit of the Americas in Panama, along with his travelling photo-op.
But despite the
Because he couldn't have had a more horrible and disastrous week.
The Duffy trial is slowly shredding his credibility...
By revealing how close Harper and Duffy were, and making it even less likely that he knew NOTHING about that scandal in his own office.
The latest job numbers are shredding what was left of his reputation as a Great Economist Leader.
According to the latest jobs update from Statistics Canada released Friday, full-time jobs are down and part-time, precarious, low-quality jobs are up.
And this after Thursday’s OECD report -- which anticipates turning points in economic activity -- had Canada's economy lagging behind most of the G7.
Most Canadians think the economy is tanking...
And to make matters even worse, so are his polls.
The voter landscape is shifting in ways that don’t appear to favour Stephen Harper’s Conservatives, who now find themselves under 29 points for the first time since the security issue gave them a polling bounce back in October. That lead now seems to have evaporated; the party trails — insignificantly — Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and has less than a six-point margin over a clearly rejuvenated NDP.
He's definitely heading in the wrong direction...
His support in Quebec, which had him dreaming of a majority, is sinking along with the support for his war...
As is the support for his foul anti-terrorist bill.
And the worst thing is he can't run away from all his problems, not even in Panama.
Not when another of his star appointments Arthur Porter is languishing in a Panamanian jail, and inviting Harper to visit him.
When Stephen Harper arrives in Panama on Friday it will bring him within a short drive of a man he’d probably rather forget: alleged fraudster Arthur Porter.
“If he wishes, he is most welcome to come and see the conditions that I live in now,” Porter said of Harper during the conversation, which was drowned out at times by the shouts of other inmates in the background.
Which can only remind Canadians once again of Harper's appalling judgement.
Just like Patrick Brazeau did when he dropped in on the Duffy trial this week...
Because as you know, the Con's crime calendar is jammed solid all the way to the next election.
And may soon be even more jammed with the arrival of Pamela Wallin...
And of course all of this couldn't be better news.
He's losing the war as an issue, the economy won't save him, his momentum is tanking, and the stench of the Duffy trial and all his other scandals can only damage him further.
So how long can it be before Great Leader starts thinking about his Day of Justice?
Or starts looking for another job...
You know when the history of the Con regime's reign of terror is written, I honestly believe that last week will be recorded as the beginning of the end.
Isn't that a nice thought?
Enjoy it, we deserve it.
And have a great weekend everybody !!!
