Stephen Harper and Economy

Up to last week Harper has been stating that the fundamentals of our economy are sound. Maybe he and his corporate friends are fundamentally doing well. However, he does not fully realize how average Joe and Jane on Main Street are coping – people are losing jobs, inflation is up and people are losing their savings, in particular those who had invested in the stock market including RRSPs and funds for their children's education and other nest eggs.

Now Harper has somewhat changed his tune and said that the World financial crisis and US financial meltdown may impact us, but he still does not understand or does not want to understand the economic downturn in Canada because of the financial meltdown. I have seen on TV snippets of his platform and it is not reassuring. Danny Williams’ ABC (Anyone but Conservatives) has started to make more and more sense.

  1. Steve Harper has a heart? Coulda fooled me. ;)

  2. Oops! You're right. He has no heart. But then he told certain reporters that he does. So we have to take him for his words.
