In the last week we’ve seen a bit of the new “change” being brought to Ottawa by the Conservative party.
- A Liberal MP from Vancouver crosses the floor. It’s just as bad as when Belinda Stronach did it. Of course the decision is never about politics, right? I wonder why a cabinet position is always involved. It goes without saying that most Conservatives now think this is a great idea, even though they claimed the skies would fall when it happened last year.
- This guy seems to be taking a beating. He’s a Conservative MP who spoke out against said crossing-of-floor. Apparently Harper punishes people when they don’t agree with him.
- The appointment of unelected people to the Senate. This is especially hypocritical considering Harpers previously strong view that the Senate should be elected, not appointed. May as well take your one last chance to get crazy wingnut Stockwell Day into a government position, eh? And you put him in charge of Public Safety?
Well, the Conservatives seem to be doing pretty well at screwing up so far, so that’s good. I just hope the Liberals make sure to wait long enough before trying to force an election. They need to get themselves on track not just wait for the Conservatives to get off track.
