An ominous black cloud hung over Mississauga, last night as the prime minister rolled into town for a quick 30 minute speech to the people that showed up at a Croatian center for a barbecue.
To a back drop of rolling thunder the prime ministers brief appearance consisted of quick one liners poking fun at his opponent Stephane Dion's failure to force an election.
Where last week Harper was blaming the Liberals for making parliament dysfunctional and hampering his minority government from accomplishing it's agenda, last night he boasted about the gains his minority government has made.
"We have established a strong record of achievement over the past 2 1/2 years," he said.
The brief visit to Mississauga was the first stop of Harpers two day southern Ontario tour which will include Hamilton, London and Kitchener, smaller urban centers where Harper might actually have chance of gaining a seat in the next election.
Last night all he gained was a couple of hot dogs and practice talking out of the other side of his mouth.
As an aside the weather is expected to clear up today.
