The Auditor General has cut the legs out from under the Harper government's claim that they were misled over the realistic cost of the F-35 light bomber.
They knew full well, says Michael Ferguson, and they knew well before the last election and they lied through their teeth to the Canadian public to get Harper his majority.
Gordon Campbell and crew lied to the BC public about the harmonized sales tax in the runup to his last election. Campbell resigned in disgrace before he was run out of town but his LINO Libs are facing extinction in the next election.
Harper pulled a Campbell scam. If he'd been exposed on it during the campaign he wouldn't have a majority government, he wouldn't even have a minority government. He too would have been run out of town.
It's so obvious it's glaring why no heads are rolling this time. That's because the scam goes straight to the top, all the way up the Tory back passage, and stops at Harper's desk. He's not only directly culpable but he's supremely accountable for his government's deceit and connivance. Steve can't fire the generals for concealing information he had all along. He can't fire MacKay either. He'd have to fire his entire government and that would mean facing the Canadian public.
Stephen Harper plainly defrauded a lot of Canadians out of their votes by his deceptions and lies. It's the very nature of the Harper beast. Canada has two scourges - we have "one man rule" and that one man is as bent as a penny nail.
Harper and his cabinet stand indicted by the Auditor General. It's time he asked the Governor General to issue a writ. Anything else is simply indecent.
