Former Member Of Conservative Caucus Verifies That Harper Is A Bully To His Own MP's

Nova Soctia Independent Member of Parliament Bill Casey (Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley, N.S.), was kicked out of the Conservative Caucus for voting against the 2006 Federal Budget.

While sitting in the Tory Caucus, Casey had a good look at Stephen Harper in action as Prime Minister and party leader. According to Mr. Casey, Harper consistently bullies the Members of Caucus and acts like a dictator in matters of policy.

"I remember one specific time when Mr. Harper come into caucus one day and he said, 'We've decided to make significant cuts to a lot of programs, some of these cuts may hurt your ridings but anybody who criticizes the cuts will suffer severe consequences to their political career as a Conservative Member of Parliament,' and that's an exact quote, I wrote it down at the time and then he didn't tell us what the cuts were."

"He's really smart, he has a lot of capabilities, but he does not understand that if you keep pushing people, sooner or later, they'll push back. That's what's happening, this is why we're here. This is not just because of the economic statement, this is a culmination of two years of frustration, forced confidence votes and threats. The opposition MPs just met their limit and now they're pushing back."

Hill Times

Unfortunately for Canadians, Conservative Members of Parliament are too terrified to challenge their leader and merely allow him to bully his way along daily. Canadians will soon find out that there is a huge difference between 'leading' and 'bullying'.

If all of us keep conspiratorially quiet then Harper should set himself up for a HUGE fall.

And that ought to be the end of him--just like Manning before him.

Remember Manning? Where's he at today?
