Vain Hope Watch

Gilles Duceppe had plenty to say about Harper and coalitions. It turns out coalition talks, in 2004, between Harper, Layton and Duceppe ended with the signing of a joint letter to the Governor General, asking to be given a chance to form a government, something that Harper now says is illegitimate. As Duceppe says:
"He (Harper) finished second in that election," Duceppe said in French. "If he says that's undemocratic, well, that's exactly what he was asking for. So let's not play games with history. He has to take responsibility."
Good luck getting Harper to take responsibility for this or for anything else. That is not his thing. His thing is to lie and smear. It is the way he operates.
