..."harm" a word connected to each individual's point of view. I can agree with MF a Conservative Government is harmful.

Stephen Harper continues to outstrip rival party leaders in popular support
Globe and Mail

Quote:
...Not being in the media spotlight day after day, as he was during the election campaign, has contributed to a slide in how Canadians view NDP Leader Jack Layton’s leadership skills.

And having Bob Rae take over the reigns as Liberal Leader hasn’t done anything for Grit party fortunes.

The poll, released Monday and conducted by Nanos Research, shows that just a few weeks after the May 2 general election, the Prime Minister and his Conservatives have 41.8-per-cent support compared to 28 per cent for Mr. Layton and the NDP – a 14-point lead...

The Liberals are at 22.3 per cent, the Green Party, with its sole MP Elizabeth May, is at 3.7 per cent and the Bloc has 3.4-per-cent support nationally.

In addition, the Prime Minister’s leadership indicators are strong.

Mr. Harper is leading his opponents when it comes to issues of trust, competence and vision for Canada – 32.3 per cent, 38.5 per cent and 33.7 per cent, respectively, compared to 29.4, 24.1 and 28.4 for Mr. Layton.

Mr. Rae, who was appointed interim Liberal Leader only a month ago, registers with an 8.4-per-cent score on trust, 10.4 per cent on competence and 8.5 per cent on vision for Canada.

Mr. Layton, meanwhile, has dropped about five points in each of those categories since the election.

As expected, screature--BigDL's typical mumbling meanderings and malapropisms notwithstanding.

Trudeau was rather popular, as was Chretien I hear. If we're using popularity as some sort of measure of great leadership abilities.

The bottom line, however, is the strong relationship between Canadians and the Tories. “Summertime is a good time to have a honeymoon,” Mr. Nanos said, especially for government.

People aren’t paying attention. Usually an incumbent government does better when the House is not sitting … all to the advantage of Stephen Harper and the Conservatives,” he said.
bold part is canadian politics in a nutshell.

I glad to see Tony Clement is invoking his right to remain silent, even in the House of Commons, where what he says can't used in court.

Apparently, according to the questions asked during question period, in Parliament he hides under his desk.

listen mr sour grapes man. I stopped supporting the liberals when the news of mis spent tax dollars came out, and never went back.

The fact that the liberals were nearly wiped out and removed even as official opposition, makes your post hilarious.
