Stephen Harper and the Day of Reckoning
Well I think it's safe to say that Stephen Harper will not be seen anywhere near Parliament Hill today.
And that he will spend yet another day hiding from Canadians.
Because today would not be a very good day to come out of the closet.
For three very good reasons.
Firstly he doesn't want to be around when the Finance Minister starts talking about Canada's downgraded economic outlook.
Finance Minister Bill Morneau is expected to give a better idea today of how much the economic downturn has curbed growth in Canada.
The source says the figures will show a lot has changed since the federal government released similar figures in November and will give Canadians a better idea of the size of the budget deficit.
For it will be a day of reckoning.
And he certainly doesn't want to be asked any embarrassing questions about how his disastrous economic policies have led us to the verge of disaster...
Or asked about the size of his deficit that he claimed was a surplus. As his shameless stooge Rona Ambrose is still doing...
Lest he be accused, again, of being a Con artist himself.
Secondly, now that the Liberals have released a list of the budget cuts he tried to hide.
After the former Conservative government made across-the-board cuts in the 2012 federal budget, the Parliamentary Budget Office complained the government was refusing its request to see details so it could analyze the impact of the cuts on services and programs. Today, the Trudeau government posted the information in an online spreadsheet.
He certainly doesn't want to be asked any questions about the way he hacked his way through government in his never ending attempt to slowly but surely kill it...
For just a quick glance at that list can only remind Canadians of the monster he was, and the damage he did to Canada.
And what he might have done if he was still in power, and was able to make us keep paying for his mistakes.
And thirdly of course, he doesn't want to be seen on the same day the Duffy trial resumes.
Lest he be dragged into its scary orbit again...
Or be asked questions about his appalling judgement, or the cover-up.
Or the whole Senategate scandal...
For it can only remind Canadians of the sleazy leader he was.
Or wonder when all of the above is considered.
Why he's still at large.
Instead of on trial himself.
Or in prison...
Yup. Stephen Harper, still a coward.
Still hiding from Canadians.
Still trying to save his foul legacy.
From the harsh verdict of history...
