Trudeau Attacks and Harper Defends

The worst thing a political party can do in an election is to be left spending their campaign time on the defensive.  He has been defending on the Duffy trial and what he knew or didn't know.  If he knew nothing, as he claims, and all the King's Men knew everything then where does that leave Stephen Harper as a leader in the PMO's Office?

The whole stinky mess surrounding Duffy went on for days and all the PMO's staff were involved claiming they don't read all their emails.  With all this rumble out of the PMO's Office going on Stephen Harper claims he knew nothing.  No one believes Harper because no PM in the history of Canada has been more controlling.

Stephen Harper Misleading Voters

Stephen Harper is misleading voters when he claims he is the best person to guide the Canadian economy going forward.  Today he claimed his government is a government of balanced budgets. We all know better as he has never balanced a budget since he became Prime Minister.  He inherited a surplus from the liberal government and then went on to run up a 158 billion dollar national debt. Conservative governments have always had a history of failing to be prudent with taxpayer's dollars.

We are in our second recession under Harper's poor management of our economy.  We are approaching near 200 thousand fewer jobs now than when Stephen Harper became Prime Minister. Job quality is at a 25 year year low and household debt is near a record high.

Desperate Stephen Harper

Stephen Harper must be desperate with his latest announcements about Canadian security.  He has decided to ban Canadians from going to Iraq and Syria or any other countries he decides are harbouring terrorists.  He claims he will prosecute any Canadian to the full extent of the law who may travel to these countries if they do not have the proper credentials.  If this is such a great idea why did he wait for an election to make this decision?

Now he is telling Canadians that terrorists post horrible videos of their ruthless executions that is aired here in Canada by the mainstream media.  Harper condemns the terrorists for such barbaric actions and then he uses their videos for a conservative attack ad for his own political gain.  And then the questions arises as to whether the conservatives are contravening their own security legislation? Further, the conservative attack ad on Justin Trudeau does more harm than good as it really only spreads terrorist propaganda like ISIS.

Stephen Harper - Just no longer Ready

I met Stephen Harper before he was elected.  I did not care for him then and I really do not care for him now.  I knew he was controlling and consumed by his own self-importance.  He has had a successful political career, but the way he achieved it was ruthless and disrespectful of anyone in his way.  It doesn't have to be that way in politics, but Stephen Harper can't help being mean-spirited because that is whom he is from dusk to dawn every day of the week including Sunday.

Stephen Harper is a man whom will take those in his path and kick them to the curb or throw them under a bus.  I have found nothing kind about Harper.  His acts of kindness are done for his own self-interest.  It is whom he is and he is not about to change anytime soon.
