PM Stephen Harper at New Low

The Harper government is now at a new low and little wonder.  His government has posted a big fat zero for economic growth in the first three months of 2015.

And making matters worse for the Harper conservatives is the Mike Duffy trial, which may well track right back to the Office of the Prime Minister.  Many will ask why the PM didn't know what his Chief of Staff, Nigel Wright, was doing when he wrote a secret cheque for $90,000.00 to Mike Duffy.  That seems like a reasonable question to me.  Further, the Duffy trial is expected to be a long trial and may run right into the next federal election.

Now we learn Toyota is moving production out of Ontario to Mexico and China.  That will not impress voters in Ontario.

And then there is the matter of the Supreme Court of Canada again ruling against the Harper Government.  This one is a decision regarding mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes.

Now for the first time the Harper conservatives are trailing the liberals and the NDP in the latest nanos poll.  I can understand the Harper conservatives trailing the liberals, but the NDP is really hard to believe.  Stephen Harper should take a long look over his shoulder because Elizabeth May of the Green Party at 34% is rising in the polls.

Maybe it is time for the Prime Minister to make a call to Kim Campbell.  As a former Prime Minister she knows how to live well in a life after politics.
