I suspect this is largely the work of unemployed activists--which is usually not a contradiction in terms.

I agree, but usually it's mindless bickering from two sides; it would appear that the partisan Harper supporters decided not to post anything in his defence, despite this being an article that would superficially seem to be complementary.

Certainly not particularly meaningful, but it caught my eye as being out of the ordinary.

True.

Just sniping such as 'diehard, blowhards', and, my favourite.... unemployed.

I can see why the unemployed would be particularly unhappy with spendhappy Harper.

Of course, but all the Harper supporters know that the unemployed aren't really Canadian citizens who's concerns are valid or need consideration. They're poor; so they barely qualify as human, let alone citizens who need good representation in Parliament

What's up with Harper and the Omnibus bills?

He's got a majority; isn't he even going to pretend to respect democracy? He doesn't need to do this to get his agenda through parliament, but he has such contempt for the democratic process that he's putting everything in giant, undebatable omnibus bills.

Sadly, all too true, bryanc. I never understood the rationale of an omnibus bill other than to ram through legislation that is lost in the multitude of parts of the bill ........ which is only found out later AFTER the bill has been passed.

Paix, mon ami.

Glad that someone posted this. Harper did state the obvious both eloquently and accurately. A shame he didn't put his words into practice and ban the Omnibus bills entirely.

I am still waiting for him to reform or do away with the Senate, or to do something about MP pensions.
