Is Stephen Harper Completely Nuts?
The man who was singularly responsible for
- destroying any chance of Canada ever having a military jet fighter programme of its own,
- of caving in to political pressure of the United States at the expense of his own nation,
- of being petty enough to try to erase one of this nations most historic technical achievements – and all records of it because it caused him political inconvenience, and
- of being easily the most justly hated Prime Minister this nation has ever had….
…is being rewarded by having his name enshrined on one of our new icebreakers that will be responsible for ensuring Canadian sovereignty in Arctic waters. Adding this to a growing list of token outrages that the Conservative Party of Canada will have to account for – perhaps in the imminent election, or (more probably) at some later date.
In the meantime – there’s only one word for such historical folly: shame!
