Stephen Harper Has Contradicted Himself Again and Again and Now Again!

Well Stephen Harper cannot let go of the notion of a coalition government. In a recent set of attack ads, he pins Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff as an irresponsible leader who wants to raise taxes with the NDP and separate the nation with the Bloc Quebecois.

One of 6 New Attack Ads released by Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party of Canada

“It’s the kind of politics of personal destruction that Harper perfected.”

Michael Ignatieff

It is funny how this action is displayed on an action that Stephen Harper did himself in 2005 in an attempt to take power . Michael Ignatieff has responded stating that the ads are “rubbish” and that “it’s the kind of politics of personal destruction that Harper perfected.” Of course, this isn’t the first time that Stephen Harper has attacked Ignatieff, last year, the fact that he spent parts of his life out of the country brought fire. Stephane Dion, the former Liberal leader, is no stranger to these attack ads. Do we not remember the whole fiasco of the pigeon leaving on his shoulder? That was just distasteful. It just goes to show that the people who are running the show have no integrity. Below is a video that can say more than a picture worth a thousand words, for those of us who think we know the real Stephen Harper, think again, he has contradicted himself many times on the issue of coalitions, and this is just one example.

One Example of How Stephen Harper has Contradicted Himself on an Issue He Fought Strongly For.

After watching this video, hopefully Stephen Harper will not look so trustworthy, for he isn’t in it for us, he’s in it for himself… Isn’t that what he said about Michael Ignatieff? Oh yeah…

Can we trust a man who goes back on his word?

On Monday, the longest campaign in modern history will come to a close and if current polls are any indication, Canada may be seeing a change in government after 9 years of Conservative rule under the leadership of Stephen Harper. Accountability was his calling card in 2006 and today, accountability may very well be one of the defining reasons for his departure.

In its length, in its cost and in its debate schedule, this election is unusual. The first and possibly only real debate of the campaign ended and here are the highlights of what happened.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper left Rideau Hall this morning with Governor General David Johnston’s approval to drop the writ and Canadians are now officially headed to the polls on October 19. For the first time since fixed election date legislation was brought in by the Conservative government, a fixed election date has been followed.
