Stephen Harper is not there for us!
What does it take to wake Canadians up?
The Conservative government, under Stephen Harper has been a divisive force, muzzling MPs, civil servants and diplomats, racing to the bottom with a barrage of bullying attack ads before an election was even called, and keeping important budget information from
Parliament, to the point where it has been found in contempt, a first in Canadian history. By contrast, our Universal Medicare program, our Pension Plan and even the selection of our Canadian flag were all passed under a minority Canadian government. These programs were made possible because political parties of different stripes worked together for the good of the people.
We need a leader who respects the voices of all our elected Members of Parliament, not a contemptuous schoolyard bully with a compliant gang of MP bystanders. We must not fool ourselves into thinking that Stephen Harper is there for us! Contempt of Parliament is really contempt of us.
