Our friend, the Salamander, left a comment that got me thinking. He asked what John A., were he alive today, would have said about Stephen Harper?
That brought to mind a much more recent prime ministerial heavyweight. Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Can you imagine, had he not been lost to us much too soon, what Pierre Trudeau, from the comfort of his retirement, would have had to say about Stephen Joseph Harper and his devious, authoritarian, undemocratic ways?
I can imagine Pierre Trudeau energizing the Canadian people to storm Sussex Drive with pitchforks and torches. Punks like Harper were always his favourite sport.
