If ever a photo summed up what is clearly Harper's attitude toward this country, our parliament and other institutions, this would be it, right down to his expression.
Today, the government simply decided not to show up at the Afghanistan Special Committee. How's that for respecting the will of Parliament and the will of the Committee?
This behaviour has no place in a democracy, but I guess we also know what the Harper government thinks of that quaint notion don't we.
Another example is what we learned at Copenhagen today. You know of course how Prentice and Harper and others all quote, ad nauseam, the hard targets of 20% by 2020. Well, surprise, surprise. They didn't really mean it.
If you believe in this country, you should be outraged at how it/we are being treated.
That is, without respect and in fact disdain.
