Stephen Harper is dreaming in technicolour, isn't he? The chutzpah of the guy is beyond belief.
PM takes credit for unified Canada
Let's see - we have the killing war in Afghanistan, which most Canadians do not support, cozying up to the U.S. so that everything that we have is theirs and none of it is ours, very strange middle eastern policies i.e. supporting Israel's cluster bombing of Lebanon and its stealing land that does not belong to it, stirring up the whole sovereignty pot in Quebec, systematic stripping of privacy rights and habeas corpus, opaque and secretive government, increasing militarism and frankly stupid environmental policies.
In an effort to get more votes and become the next emperor, Harper is trying to fracture Canada into multiple opposing sides, race against race, religion against non-religion, urban against rural, east against west.
One thing for sure - those who wish to see Canada as a coherent, tolerant, welcoming, lawful, environmentally conscious country may be firmly united, but it's against Harper and his neo-con buddies, both here and around the world.
