$tephen Harper ..... hater???

Progressive Bloggers

"OTTAWA – The first substantial book to peek behind the curtain of Stephen Harper’s government paints a portrait of the prime minister as a control freak largely motivated by hatred for his political opponents.

Harperland: The Politics of Control, by veteran Globe and Mail columnist Lawrence Martin, describes in detail the changes Harper has wrought in the federal government, an incremental and often brutal transformation at the hands of a tough, disciplined leader with a gift for strategy and a ruthlessness that even some of his closest allies find chilling. [...]

Some of the most interesting comments come from former trade minister David Emerson, a Vancouver businessman who served under both Paul Martin and Harper. After Emerson crossed the floor to serve in Harper’s government, he was surprised by the level of hatred among Harper’s team for the Liberals.

They were “viscerally hating their political opposition,” he said. “Sometimes it was just startling to me.”

Former senior aide Keith Beardsley noted the same thing."
