Another Harper, Bush like momemt

Today Harper flew over the flood zones in New Brunswick. That's right just like George did over New Orleans (well similarly anyway). Steve "is touring areas of New Brunswick hit by the flooding of the St. John River."

I love reading the CBC reports on Harper. Here's a direct clip from the article:
Harper arrived in Fredericton on Friday afternoon, where he boarded a military helicopter to survey the flood damage in the Maugerville area. Harper said a lot of houses appeared to be under water and people were upset but New Brunswickers were handling the flooding well.
"Harper said a lot of houses appeared to be under water" Simply beautiful.

Anyway this is all great PR opportunities for Steve as he tests the waters (so to speak) for an election. Two days ago he was in Edmonton saving ducks and today he is flying over the flood waters of those lazy east coasters. You can just hear him, in the chopper, turning to Premier Graham "Look Shawn, for christ sake make sure that none of these fucking people start congregating at hockey arenas."

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.


That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
