More important to describe reality than to have labels, now.

Labels were totally fine, then.

No, Harper's trouble with labels only come when it refers to matters of which he likes to claim knowledgeable superiority, such as economics and recessions.

This is the same Harper who accuses his opponents of saying and doing whatever they feel will get them elected.  It's a line tribal Tories will probably lap up, but for the majority of Canadians, it is simply more evidence that "they're all the same" and "not to be trusted."

Harper may very well win this election again.  At the end of the day, it's going to be one of the parties, or a coalition (for at least the short term).  So long as they keep playing this game, however, the sustainability of this system of democracy will continue to erode.

And when people give up on their democratic elected government, it ain't a pretty sight.
