Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in town today.
Apparently he was here to deliver an economic update.
I didn’t even know that he was coming to the port city until I was on my drive home this morning, and heard it on the radio. One of the radio stations was offering $973 to anyone who could get Stephen Harper to come into the station and talk to them. I don’t know if they were successful with that or not. I slept all day and didn’t hear what he had to say until I woke up several hours after he had already left.
I think that the one thing that struck a chord with me was that ‘an unnecessary fall election is not in the best interest of Canadians’. I’m paraphrasing because I heard the sound bite on the radio, and I don’t remember the exact wording. But yes… I think that’s about the only thing that I agree with no questions asked.
This country has had far too many federal elections in the past couple of years. It almost feels like we’re overdue, but we keep having the same outcome. A Conservative minority government. Until the Liberals can manage to put someone at the helm of their party who inspires confidence with everyday Canadians, I think that we’re going to continue on this same path. So why bother wasting more money and going to the polls, only to have the exact same outcome the day after the polls close. It’s ludicrous.
That’s not a vote for you, Stephen. It’s simply a matter of fact.
