PostMedia Paper Calls Harper a Liar

The centre-right Victoria Times Colonist more than doubts Steve Harper's claim that he'll leave it up to science to evaluate the "costs and risks" of the Northern Gateway pipeline.   Here's how the paper's editors reacted:

"...when [Harper] says an independent panel will decide the issue based on scientific evidence, pardon us for thinking of the stereotypical Old West judge telling the accused: 'We'll give you a fair trial before an impartial jury, and then we'll hang you.'"

Jeebus, Steve, even PostMedia is calling you a liar.

"It seems odd that the prime minister is prepared to place his faith in an independent panel when in April, his government took away the National Energy Board's ability to kill a project with a negative ruling.

"It seems odd that Harper is looking to science to resolve the issue when his government has gutted environmental regulations and has muzzled federal scientists.

"Science (other than the science of accounting) didn't reign when the federal government decided to close the Deaprtment of Fisheries and Oceans marine pollution program, including two research scientists, a chemist and six support staff at the Institute for Ocean Sciences in North Saanich.

As for Steve's unquestionable ability to spin science, the editors observe, "As William Shakespeare wrote: 'The devil can cite scripture for his purpose.'"

I guess "liar" wasn't enough, Steve.   Now you're Lucifer himself.

Harper's science, is just another of his lies, deceit, corruption and cheating to win. Harper's science means buggerall to the people of BC.

Watch out for Harper placing one of his own boys Yves Cortes, into Elections Canada. Harper is desperate to quash the robo-call cheat election fraud investigation. William Corbett "suddenly" resigned from Elections Canada???

Same with the election riding disputes. Harper has appointed, two new Conservative judges. Harper is using every dirty tactic in the book, to cheat his way out of that too.

Harper's whopper of a lie regarding, Bruce Carson. Harper said, I don't know why I didn't know, Carson was a many times convicted criminal. Turns out Harper did know, and hired him anyway. Criminals do have their uses.

Ex BC Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell, was rewarded the post of, High Commissioner to England, for doing Harper's dirty work for him.

Harper and his Ministers, have been a litany of, lies, deceit, corruption, thefts, dirty tactics, dirty politics, and certainly don't mind cheating to win.

Harper can stuff his science, where the sun doesn't shine.

When Harper said that, it was the biggest joke of all.
