By Appointing Pierre Poilievre To 'Democratic Reform' Portfolio, Stephen Harper Is Preparing To Do Battle With Elections Canada And The Press
The nasty little piece of work known as Pierre Poilievre has three big 'issues' on the list with his newly assigned 'Democratic Reform' responsibilities:
-Corruption in the Senate and the public demand for reform/abolition
-The looming RoboCalls Trial of Michael Sona
-Demands for legislative changes to The Elections Act by the Chief Electoral Officer.
-Mr. Harper has no intention of making any changes to the Election Act. The Conservative Party is anxious to leave everything as is so that they can once again push all regulated limits to the extreme in the next federal campaign. Pierre Poilievre will stonewall and attack the Chief Electoral Officer at every turn.
-Michael Sona's trial is going to be closely watched by pundits and the public alike. Harper needs one voice to speak for the Conservatives ... and Pierre's ability to stick to the party line without any wavering is a big part of why he is now in Cabinet.
-Reform of the Senate is not going to happen under the Conservatives in any way, shape or form prior to the next election. If anything, Pierre is again going to aggressively repeat all the talking points for the next year and a half.
