And I was asked what Steven Harper has done that is illegal? What bout that email they intercepted from the NDP, while it was the NDPs mistake, that was just dirty that they used that. His attacks ageist Election Canada is reminiscent of McCain/Palin's attacks ageist ACORN. Illegal, no, troubling, yes.
However, I do find the statement that making the senate equal is under democratic as untrue, as the House of Commons is set by population and would likely remain the most predominate house.
I don’t like how they attacked Harper for wanting to reform the Senate, and I somewhat agree with him if he is thinking of using the Australian senate as an example (as while over expanded, it does have an equal number of seats per state.) But I still think that one of his intensions is to eliminate it, and that’s wrong, and if you are in doubt he said that, have a look at this…

As I believe that the senate holds the key to making Canada more unified, I find such statements dangerous.Canadians understand that our Senate, as it stands today, must either change or — like the old upper houses of our provinces — vanish.
Now these news articles do have a left bias, but I do believe that thought the bias, they made very valid points that imo, should warrant Harper's dismissal as PM of Canada.
Now does that mean that the Tories shouldn’t continue to run the government and have one of them be PM? No, absolutely not. In fact, I would be very happy with the Tory party continuing in power with a PM that is more moderate that Harper, such as a member from the former PC party that can lead the parliament and Canada though these hard economic times, who knows that the party only has a minority mandate and will work, not fight the opposition that could topple him or her. If that were to happen, I believe it would be even more beneficial to the Tory party, which by 2011 could have a majority government that will likely be even bigger than under Harper. So really it’s for the better, not the worse that Harper goes as PM. Maybe I am just bias, as I miss the old PC party, but I do know moderates are more popular than radical neo conservatives.
In any case, it seems to me no matter how you see it, the Liberals and the NDP are bound for a merger, cuz I don’t see either of them gaining but losing seats come the next election, but if history is any indicator of what’s to come, we could see a new left party like the current conservative party rise from the ashes.
Anyway, this is my two cents on why Harper (not the Tory party) should go. I think the links can speak for themselves, and dont need any more addisional dialogue for me.
