Stephen Harper: Now He's a Great Business Leader

Well we knew Stephen Harper was going to go into business from the moment he knocked on the door of Calgary's Petroleum Club.

But surprisingly enough he is not going to work for Big Oil, at least not yet.

Even though working in the mail room of Imperial Oil, where his daddy worked, was his only previous business experience.

He's setting up his own consulting company.

With his loyal Robin Ray Novak. 

According to documents filed with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, Harper has created his own corporation.

Called "Harper & Associates Consulting Inc.," the paperwork was officially filed with the government in late December of 2015, two months after his party's election defeat and his resignation as leader. Harper is listed as a director, along with former PMO staffers Ray Novak and Jeremy Hunt.

Now I must say that after the state he left this country's economy in, I have no idea why anybody would want to seek his advice...


But fortunately Press Progress has some excellent ideas. 

And needless to say I like this one the best...

Because it is really important to know who NOT to appoint as your close associate, or Parliamentary Secretary.

If you don't want people to question YOUR judgement...

Or end up in the same place...

Still if you're looking for advice on how to drive a hard brutal bargain.

And if you're a big fan of the miserable banker Mr Potter in It's a Wonderful Life.

Harper and Novak are probably your kind of consultants...

Welcome to Pottersville Harperville.

And may god help their victims...

    I think he has taken up an apprenticeship with Sir Crosby.

    1. hi anon...yes I must say I'm curious to find out what kind of consulting services Harper and company are offering. Although I'm almost afraid to ask. I mean I'm sure Ray Novak could teach me how to keep my boss happy by flattering him constantly and bringing him coffee and donuts at any time of the day or night. But as for Harper,I can't think of a single thing he could teach me, without running the risk of ending up in a cell with Dean Del Mastro. Which of course would be horrifying, having to listen to him repeat over and over again "Da judge got it all wrong !!!!"

    Speechless..... FS

    1. hi FS...what? You're not going to ask Harper & Harper to help you with your taxes? If he could direct the CRA to go after birdwatchers, he could probably still direct them to save you a lot of money...

    Moral fortitude will not stand test of time. Karma, karma, karma...

    We all need to breath and get on with work and life. That is what Canada is about. Harper will burn in hell.


    1. hi TS...yes it is time to move on and enjoy the summer. It does seem that Harper is finally prepared to move on, and we can finally close that ugly chapter in the life of this country. Although I might need hypnosis to truly forget that nightmare, and in the meantime I intend to take out my frustrations on the Ambrose clowns. They may not be quite as scary, but they are just as awful....

    Harper's always had a knack with names. First he named his new political party CCRAP, and now he calls his new company HAC!

    1. hi anon....yes it does have a certain familiar ring to it, and of course if you spell it backwards it's even more familiar... ;)

    I think we should give Stevie a going away gift of auditing his company every 6 months for the rest of his life.

    1. hi that's an excellent idea. I want the Koch brothers to pay for supporting the Cons. And when I think of how the CRA harassed those birdwatchers, I want to see the feathers flying...

  6. The kind of consulting company where you pay them (in monopoly money) to provide a solution then do the exact opposite.

    Similar to what one imagines disaster 'consultant' and former FEMA head during Katrina Mike "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job" Brown does.
