It's Stephen Harper's Fault That Canada Has No Olympic Medals!
Imagine if the Prime Minister of Canada had risen to his feet to applaud Canada's elite athletes as they marched into the stadium in the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics! The athletes would have responded to the cheer that went up - knowing that they were the pride and joy of EVERY Canadian.
Now back to reality. Not EVERY Canadian was thrilled to see our athletes attend the games. In fact the number one Canuck, the Grand Poo Bah of the Great White North thought so little of them that he boycotted the games because he has ideological difficulties with the alternative economic system of China.
So why should our athletes be giving it their best in Beijing? Why should they burn that extra bit of energy needed to win bronz or silver or gold?
Harper is supposed to be our Leader. He has not been acting much like a leader on the international stage. His petty personal priorities trump his job description and his leadership and demonstration of pride in Canada's best was absent at the opening ceremonies.
No wonder Canadians are absent on the medal podium.
