Fife does not report the news, he states his opinion. (video)
What is the opinion of actual Canadians? Read the comments on the article. Here are some samples:
I guess you did as much as you could to bash our Prime Minister. He was there making a speech... do you not believe that Dion's speeches are also to woo voters to vote for him, but that is never mentioned.... Just dion and his great plan, that everyone will eat up and think they are eating lobster...Why can't just once you report something positive on our Prime Minister. After all, the people did elect him, he represents us, and every time you mention his name has to be with a negative headline.... Shame on you bias liberals...
"Prime Minister Stephen Harper addressed a crowd of supporters in Quebec Tuesday". He was speaking to 'supporters'. If he wants to talk about the Conservative Party, what is the problem with this? Why is this news and why are people on here complaining about it?
All I can say is Thank God that Mr. Harper has been sitting in the PM's chair the last 2 years as he has done more for Canada in this short time than the Liberals did in a dozen years. Let's look at the facts right now we have lower taxes, lower national debt, increased pride in our military and are exceeding our international obligations, increased respect from other nations, increased unity in Canada and all the while he has not sucked up to the media or hypocritically behaved other than the Conservative he is. He has my vote and get this I used to be a Liberal the only thing left is to get rid of this lunatic idea of taxing carbon which would indeed affect everything at a time when we do not and should not be playing with our economy as so far we have escaped what is happening down south but how long can that happen for. While we are at it Gordon Campbell needs a little help out the door as well with this carbon tax here in BC = Axe The Tax!!!!!
It seems to irk many here to no end that PM Harper is doing a reasonable if not great job running this country..What makes it so ironic is that those just waiting for him to fumble so they can pounce with their nay say are so much better off yet their blind faith to a past liberal government that was sinking this country both morally and financially won't allow themselves to see it. Right or wrong, left or right, Conservative or Liberal are not written in stone or necessarily realated to one another or at least they shouldn't be in the voters mind..If a government is doing a fair job then I say they deserve our praise and vote..Steadfast partisan politics from the voters perspective is nothing more then blind arrogance/ignorance and a disservice to those that vote informatively
And by far the best response of all:
We Canadians are a funny breed. We claim that we are a democratic people, yet we can't accept any party but the Liberals in power. We constantly cry that we are too overly taxed, yet criticize a PM who cuts our taxes, and praise a man who wants to jack them up again. We complain that our courts are too lax with criminals, yet complain when the government wants to get tough on crime. We claim that Canada shouldn't be so buddy buddy with the US, yet we spend the vast majority of our tourism dollars down there, all the while slagging their President at every turn. We all claim that we support human rights, but praise our Liberal PMs for signing trade deals with China and Cuba. I could go on, but you get my point. Let's face it, Canada is a left leaning society and we will never give the Conservatives a fair shot, yet we take advantage of all of the good things that this government has provided, without giving them the credit they deserve. I give up!
Don't give up Ian, the landscape is shifting, the "polls" don't show it, but it is there simmering under the surface. Last election it was about voting for change, next election will be about leadership, and good governance.
Read the rest of the comments, it's quite illuminating. Facts against emotion.
