    Harper has lied to us so consistently and for so long, that I find it impossible to believe a thing that he says. That’s very sad, but also the truth.

      I certainly couldn’t agree with you more! He can’t be trusted – never – ever!! He is a despot and needs to be gone from our government asap!!

    You have just been notified that Harper is starting a War on FN.

      Actually, no, Gary. Harper’s war on First Nations started a long time ago. This is just the latest operation. There will be more.
