Old Stephen Harper vs. New Stephen Harper on the Fair Elections Act

Stephen Harper

It’s usually a pretty dirty trick to pull up a Prime Minister’s past vocalizations about the horror of the then-Prime Minister.  Unfailingly, it jams a vaguely similar situation aside the current situation as a means of making the current Prime Minister look like a hypocrite.  It’s cheap, it’s petty but, sometimes, it’s just too perfect.

For Old Stephen Harper, amending the Elections Act is unconscionable, unless all parties rally in support of it.
