The news media in Canada is woefully hostile to Harper. I would also limit my appearances, rather than have the CBC oversee an unfairly stacked debate or conduct a hostile interview. However, he PM has been accountable to me, by delivering on some of the promises I expected him to keep.

As usual, you have no idea what you're talking about. Any semblance of the Reformers have long been left behind in favour of a party that if one could criticize them for anything, it's that they've strayed way too far to the left.

Accountability though? While the bar certainly has been set laughably low, one clearly positive thing the Conservatives have demonstrated, is that they are the most open and accountable government this country has ever had.

Or to paraphrase Red Cloud, "He made so many promises I cannot remember them all. He kept only one of them. He promised to destroy the Bill of Rights and he did so."

I knew you guys were off to the wild right, but I didn't realize just how far afield you've travelled....

Thank. You. Mark. Nice to hear a voice of reason amid the insanity. Sometimes this feels more like South Carolina than Canada.
😳 The words Harper and Accountability should not be legally allowed in the same sentence. Aloof, maybe, or Deceptive. Or perhaps Controlling or Micro-Managerial. Whatever the opposite of Open to Discussion in an Open Forum might be.

You guys are just doing a socialist lap dance. There's no voice of reason here from either of you.

I do a two-step, quick-step and a bossanova, a little Victor Sylvester and a Rudy Valentino...

However, you are a very talented guitarist, fjn. I couldn't hope to be that good.
