Don't you Conservative haters ever get tired of bad mouthing the Prime Minister? What do you mean that Mr. Harper is not a statesman?
Is that why he was awarded" World Statesman of the Year" in New York City a couple of weeks ago?http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/09/27/pol-parry-harper-award.html
Lefties talking to lefties. How boring!!!!
Actually I am a conservative. Long time.
Harper was given an award as a statesman by a pro Israeli organization for being pro Israeli. I read earlier today that the European Union was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. I guess awards aren't what they used to be.
Anyway, I guess that I should add that it is Chretien who, imo, began the precipitous decline in civility that still permeates Ottawa. My disappointment in Harper is that I am a conservative and was hoping that he would somehow find a way to reverse that trend.
I give Harper high marks for most of his legislative initiatives. I just wish he had found a way to follow the early ideals of the Reform Party where parliamentary civility was a major part of their platform. On this one part of his tenure I am disappointed.
Not all criticism is ideologically based.
