Harper fails Voters

Stephen Harper continues to fail voters to the extent that he says one thing and does another. There was a time when he condemned the liberal government of patronage appointments to the Senate and other positions. It turns out he is no different from the liberals.

He has filled Senate appointments with his supporters and now he has appointed a defeated cabinet minister, Lawrence Cannon, as Canada’s ambassador to France. It is not that Mr. Cannon is not qualified, but it feeds public opinion with the view that Prime Minister Harper is no different from the liberals. Changing the government seems to change very little.

The frequent scandals around government spending and waste continue to plague the conservatives. Their spending continues to drive the debt higher and higher costing Canadian taxpayers more. Stephen Harper is a disappointment to many voters. When will politics ever change?
