Do we really know the real Stephen Harper? I thought I did.
Like most arch Conservatives, he had very little respect for common people who are 99 per cent of Canada’s human population but receive only 67 per cent of Canada’s available income.
It could be said that his government literally takes from the poor and gives to the rich -- Robin Hood in reverse.
He did not allow farmers to vote on whether or not they wanted to keep the CWB intact with its single desk powers. He rammed the bill through Parliament as if he had dictatorial powers.
Sadly to say, in many ways his government is gradually destroying democracy in Canada.
Recently the Nexen deal was inked, giving China control over a significant portion of our natural energy resources valued at $15.1 billion.
It does not make sense that our arch conservative prime minister allows communist China to come to Canada and control a portion of our natural resources, particularly in light of the fact that some time in the future communist China and communist Russia will give Canada trouble and grief because they want control over the rich oil reserves in Canada’s far north.
