I guess Harper is taking lessons from North Korea ,a place where you don't dare criticize the supreme leader.

He's only a month from retirement. Meaning he likely has 30+ years as an employee and has a nice, fat pension awaiting him. Plus a huge severance package. There has to be some way that Harper can take this all away from him. Leftists like him don't deserve to live off of our taxes for the rest of his life. Let him get a job singing. I hope that Harper can find a way to prevent him getting his pension.

Bob is joking of course.

You gotta be careful what you say about the dictators everywhere.

He got suspended big deal.
If he worked for a local business or big box store and tried the same BS against his employer he'd get fired as quick as legally possible. Shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you.

Like it or not we vote for the ones who call the shots when it comes to spending our tax dollars.
Maybe all the scientists who got laid off do to cutbacks should be singing the songs

A true statesman would not try to censor/censure a song.
Can you imagine Chretien, Obama, PET, or any leader with class, going after a fun deal like this song.
A nation that values its freedom should not put up with this sort of knee jerk reaction to a simple song.

HO HO HO, HO HO HO, steven harper (sic) has to go.

As the Joint Liberal and NDP crusade says "GET HARPER" any way possible; including lying, distorting and making up their own version of the truth.

Apparently the NDP zealot is not aware that the Canadian Public Service has a code of ethics.
