A few people on my Facebook and Twitter have been posting this video:
While this is quite reflective of Stephen Harper’s cowardly anti-democratic tendencies and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see this exact thing again, we should keep in mind that this happened in 2008, during the last election campaign. All the more reason why we should have gotten rid of the bastard three years ago. Back then, I suppose, we progressives failed to highlight this kind of bullshit so as to most effectively engineer the Conservatives’ defeat.
When you cite this, however, make sure you keep in mind that it did not happen during this particular campaign. If you want something that DID happen more recently, have a look at this or this or this. We have a government to defeat, and so we cannot rely on out of date information. Leave that kind of misleading crap to the Tories.
