Thank Dion For Every Day That Harper Remains Our Prime Minister
Harper remains defiant and arrogant in the face of questions on the scandal for one simple reason - the Liberals are going to continue to vote/abstain strategically to allow the Conservatives to remain in power.
The Conservative Party of Canada has lost all moral authority to govern us. They were without a majority to begin with and have now descended into typical tory shenanigans. They should be put out of power today. Period. If Harper thought that his government could fall over this scandal, he would be singing a different tune and some form of official inquiry would occur simply to get the heat off of his administration. However, because the Liberal Caucus is going to continue to allow Harper to govern, he will continue to thumb his nose at Canadians over the Bernier matter!
Liberals will say, 'oh , Canadians don't want an election now' .... or privately they will remind each other that a Liberal majority is not in the cards at the moment so they will simply continue to let Harper do whatever he wants.
As bad as the Conservatives are, the Liberals are equally as bad for not doing the correct thing here and sending Harper packing, hat in hand to try and explain to Canadians why he should be given a new, fresh mandate.
Liberals can blame themselves for every misguided thing Harper and his incompetent crew do from here on in. As a New Democrat, I look forward to the day when I can remind Canadians that it was Liberals who allowed this nonsense to continue on unabated!
