Is This A Sign That Stephen Harper Is About to Call An Early Election?
I realize that we are now in the heart of the Canadian summer, and the last thing most Canadians want to think about is politics.
But the PMO never sleeps, there are still rumours circulating that Stephen Harper is planning to call an election in the next few weeks.
Before all those Canadians he's trying to bribe, spend the $3 billion child care dollars he sent them.
And in that regard this may or may not be significant.
A lot of the fanatics in the PMO seem to be mysteriously disappearing.
The corridors of power around the Prime Minister’s Office may have just gotten a whole lot less crowded — and the prospect of an early election call a lot more likely.
This afternoon, the listings for more than a dozen mid-to-senior PMO staffers vanished from the online government directory, including PMO communications director Rob Nicol, policy director Rachel Curran, senior advisor Catherine Loubier, digital outreach advisor Farhaan Ladhani and speechwriters Nigel Hannaford and Derek Shelly, among others.
Because while it may be a technological glitch, it could be more than that.
It’s fair to say that if the prime minister were getting ready to take a stroll to Rideau Hall to request a writ drop, his party would likely want to have its campaign team in place — and many of those staffers missing from the PMO directory would almost certainly be on it.
Or maybe it's just a sign that the PMO has decided to take a break before all who work in it collapse or go crazy.
Or that Stephen Harper, who is also crazy desperate, has just decided to go to the beach...
But I wouldn't count on it, so we better be ready.
If he won't listen to the shell, we're going to have to tell him ourselves.
Prepare for the Final Battle for Canada.
And get ready to send him on a permanent vacation...
