It's hard to believe that the Harper government has been in power since 2006. Then again, maybe it's not.

Since Harper and his Conservatives came to Parliament, budgets have been slashed, civil liberties have been threatened and eroded, environments have been destroyed and public services have been gutted.

In 2011, Harper won a majority government. In 2011, rabble hired Karl Nerenberg as our first-ever parliamentary reporter.

How Stephen Harper holds his own

By now Stephen Harper should be down to the low teens in popularity, in territory last occupied when Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was at 11 per cent, just before he decided to leave politics in 1993.

Yes, 60 per cent of Canadians disapprove of Harper as a leader say EKOS Politics. But an astonishing 50 per cent think the Harper government has the country going in the right direction.

Harper's new anti-terror legislation triumphs over rationality

What makes Stephen Harper think that we are in dire need of new legislation to fight terrorism? Maybe the increase in police power and surveillance in Bill C-51 is not intended for terrorists.
