Harper is no leader 1

In describing Stephen Harper in my previous post I couldn’t really find the right words to describe how I feel about Stephen Harper. Last night I read an article from one of my favourite writers, Eric Margolis who I think describes Stephen Harper perfectly.

I will quote him: “The Liberals have been in power far too long, becoming deeply corrupt and arrogant. But they have frightened many Canadians seeking change and cleaner government by comparing the Conservative leader, Stephen Harper, to….George Bush. Well, Harper is no Bush. In fact, he’s a rather unimpressive politician with no charisma or strategic view, but at least he has not been named in corruption.”

On a related note, Paul Martin has been pleading with NDP supporters to vote Liberal to avoid a Conservative victory. I think Liberal supporters should vote NDP to preserve Canadian freedoms and avoid corruption. That’s my two cents.

    As a Canadian ex-pat, I am stunned by this whole election. So many people I know are voting NDP whereas a dozen years ago (approximate time I have been out of the country) that was unfathomable! Looking forward to the election results.
