Harper’s Attempt At Bankrupting The Opposition

Just as I predicted in one of my previous blog, when Harper said government should not use the economic hard times to push their ideological agenda, he is actually thinking of doing exactly just that. Harper’s demonstrated with his “fiscal update” that he intend to use the economy as an excuse to corner the opposition. I have nothing more to add to what have already been said.

Read the Canadian Press news (link to CP news article about Harper’s plan to bankrupt the opposition) and numerous informative blogs on progressivebloggers.ca on what could turn out to be a historic moment in Canadian history.

I agree with Scott’s Diatribe and what Jerad Gallinger have mentioned. I believe the Liberal and NDP should be allowed to form a coalition government. They have to include Bloc Quebecois and come up with a set number of policies they can focus and agree on for a year and go from there.

Read Peterborough Politics and Impolitical blog to see how this could play out.

We might end up having a coalition government that would work together to see us through during this hard economic times. This would be much better than a Harper’s government whose concern is not a genuine fix to the economic ills. Harper’s only concern is to constantly think of strategy to undermine the opposition on his quest for a majority government. He almost succeeded in the last election with the lowest voter turnout in Canadian history.
