Step one: Make a decision in secret that will negatively affect Canadians.
Step two: If caught out by the opposition, change the policy, but only if it is easily demonstrable that it affects a key demographic of the Conservative base (see the long form census for a counterexample).
Step three: Blame the bureaucracy and act like you had nothing to do with the policy change in the first place.
Step four: Stand back and watch the MSM print headlines like "Ottawa gives low-income seniors a break", rather than "Conservatives caught trying to screw seniors".
Lather, rinse, repeat.
