Are you talking about Preston Manning?

It's pretty clear that Harper knew he was going against the will of the people, since he sent out a press release right after talking to the media. Not only is he a hypocrite, he is a coward. And like Intrepid, I voted for Harper once.

Sorry, poor syntax on my part. I meant that I voted for Trudeau once and against him once. For Joe Clark.

After your last post I had NO idea what YOU meant. If you like this, enjoy the ride. Harper has 4 years, then he's done. Unless he surprises and has a vision for Canada. That goes against his track record though.

Ok, ever since the AVRO arrow deal i said never conservative, never, so i've always been swayed too the lib. side FEDERALLY, i was in ontario during the Davis years,,
So in the spirit of liberal greatness which somehow has slipped too complete rock bottom, i think it's time once again for the lib. party to find three wise men.

Have no fear.


I was raised conservative. And, I can tell you right now, that unless the Conservatives get their heads out of their collective arses, I am done with them.

They talk a good game, but actions just speak to loudly.

Edit to add:
The use of small "c" and big "C" was intentional.

There's only one. If you can't see the Prince being brought up, just check out Maclean's, you're missing the boat. Do you know who?

I pray you aren't talking Trudeau Jr.

Lib's are dead if he get's brought in.

They need to bring in people of merit, not people of name.

This Conservative party is not the conservatives of Canadian history. They are the amalgamation of the defunct Progressive Conservative party along with the Alliance and the Reform parties. Basically the Bloc of the west.

Shame I can only dish out 1 star.

Can I use this description?

That is one of the best ones I have seen yet for the modern Conservatives.

Yes I am. He's even taken his own party on and won. He's the Lib in Waiting. He's not part of his father's party, too young. Wait and see. I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying that's what's going to happen.

I can only promise to judge him based on his actions.

I can't say the same for many of the people out west. They will be judge, jury, and executioner (if they could) for the actions of his father.

I would encourage you to tell that to the people that lost their livelihoods, their homes, and some even their lives to his policies, but that would probably get you sent to the hospital.

There was much better, to many magnitudes, ways for him to do what he did.

But his arrogance and his ego got in the way (this applies to 'Red Ed' aswell).

He should have left them empty until reform was passed. As I said in my OP, it was bad when the Liberals did this, but Harper promised, again and again, that this would not happen. He broke his promise right after the election?


He's playing the game that the opposition wanted. It was the opposition that voted down the senate reforms when the Conservatives introduced the bills in the HOC, and it was the (then) Liberal dominated senate that vetoed the senate reforms that made it past the house. None of the others wanted reform, so Harper played by their own rules and appointed them, you can't blame him for that. Re-appointing senators that relinquished their seats was the one thing Harper did that deserves condemnation. I noticed that nobody mentioned the fact that he is the only PM to have appointed a democratically elected senator, Bert Brown from Alberta.

He has a majority now, and you WILL see senate reform before this term is up, regardless of whether the other parties or senate want it. Bank on it.
