Harper Shrugged

Better to batten down the hatches than try to impact the landscape, eh?

Harper is as close as Canada has ever been to a truly Objectivist Prime Minister (except for his crass partisan opportunism).  He's a tactician - but he's not so hot at seeing or understanding the big picture.

In multiple sectors, from foreign trade to international terrorism to climate change to the health of our democracy, he's selling out the future to serve the interests of the present.

He'll be long gone by the time the full impact reaches us, but that will be his legacy.
