Into a valley of consequence we tread.

October 23, 2014

“We no longer seek the high road so into a valley of consequence we tread.”

Stephen Harper has led Canada from the middle of the road with his personal foreign policy project in Israel and armed adventures in the Arab world.

The ease with which a gunman made his way through the Parliament Buildings yesterday underlined the basic disconnect of this government from reality: Harper’s warnings of threats from IS were to scare up votes, not to justify preparations for an actual attack. No doubt he was as astounded as everyone else in the building when the mad gunman appeared.

Government by Stephen Harper is all bombast and spin with no thought of consequences except at the ballot box.

Canadians will absorb this week’s hits and resume our lives because we are a resilient people, but we must not allow anyone to take political advantage from this egregious error.
