Oops come back guys the message has changed

Since everything in the Harper government is about marketing Harper, his vision and his stewardship of the new Canadian brand, I find the announcement today from Harper’s governor of the central bank, Mark Carney and the other members of the governing council quite interesting.

Which would lead me to believe that the forecast for future economic numbers are not quite as rosy as originally thought.

I really hope the PMO, you know the department in Harper’s government that makes all the decisions, let’s Flaherty, Paradis and Kenny know about this.

Or maybe they might have been, sent out of town so that Harper would not have to share the spotlight and photo opportunities at the G8/G20 summits.

It is really hard to tell with this lot.

From the CBC saying things aren't that good and the Ottawa Citizen saying things are great.

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 …
