Conservative leader Stephen Harper refused Saturday to say whether he would accept a decision by the Governor General to hand power to the opposition parties after Monday's election if a majority isn't reached.
Story here (and I am pretty sure you have seen it elsewhere).
One of the low moments of the English language debates was watching Steve-O very calmly stand there and lie about our Constitutional traditions and history. I guess he has to be given a certain number of "persistence" points for continuing to do so.
Perhaps if anyone could get a question in edgewise at a press conference (yeah, right, like that is going to happen) perhaps the question should be "If you refuse to accept the decision, exactly how will you act."
Is he going to hold his breath till he turns purple? Is he going to demand that the Canadian Forces occupying the Parliament buildings to defend the Harper Government(tm) [given that he seems to think he is an American style president, he might think his role as PM somehow makes him "Commander-In-Chief"]? Is he going to fly over to London and complain "Liz, my hand picked appointee to the position of Governor General isn't doing what I want... will you please have him locked in the Tower till it is time to chop off his head"?
WTF is he actually going to do?
It is a sad thing when you start believing your own lies.
