Harper’s Record

Harper government
In case you hadn't noticed, Harper has been out of Office for about 7 years now. We collectively gave him the "boot" and replaced him with someone we thought would do better. Someone who promised to "do politics differently".

But that someone lied.

The Leader of the Opposition is now Erin O'Toole. And he really WILL do politics differently.
That's a wish and a prayer Merry, I can only go by past tract record for the Conservative party. I'm a comparison shopper in politics and I have to compare JT's record with his nearest competitor's record when they were in power and despite you're post, Harper did cut, slash and burned a lot of social programs and services because that's what they always do once they lower taxes. It's like part of their inherited dogma to do that and it's like clockwork once they get in.

That was quite the scandal.
Canadians were so upset.
Telling the world before Canadians.
Who would do that?

Canadians didn’t hold back when Prime Minister Stephen Harper first floated his proposal to overhaul old age security benefits earlier this year.

They unleashed a fury of angry emails to his Ottawa office, furious at the proposed changes and equally unhappy that the prime minister had chosen to pitch the idea to an exclusive forum in Davos, Switzerland, rather than telling Canadians first about his cost-cutting plans.

And there were plenty of questions about why the Conservatives had stayed silent about the contentious issue during last spring’s election.

In all fairness a few Conservatives in that government pulled the same BS stunt in interviews etc.

Disgusting shameful behavior

Round and round she goes. Everyone flinging poop at each other over two sides of the same coin. It's all just one big scandalous uniparty at the end of the day. They all get together after a house session and laugh at how naive the people are! Meanwhile we drift further apart forgetting that we are neighbors and that we are the only ones we hurt with this nonsense at the end of the day. Sigh.....carry on.........
