We're only three days into the work week and already two Canadian soldiers may have paid with their lives for this prime minister's stupidity.
On Monday, a soldier was run down and killed outside CFB St. Jean. Harper wasted no time declaring it a terrorist attack.
"What took place yesterday is clearly linked to terrorist ideology," Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney told reporters in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office said the man was known to federal authorities, and that there were clear indications he had become "radicalised", a term the government has used to refer to those who support militant Islam.
Steve, you dumb hump, you are "the authorities." It's your job and your cabinet's job and CSIS, CSEC and the RCMP's job to safeguard Canada from real terrorists. You would rather employ the instruments of state power to intimidate bird watchers or people who speak politically, except when you like what they're saying. You would rather employ your government's security resources in service to Enbridge and Kinder Morgan and two soldiers may have paid for that with their lives.
