Harper Flips on Hard on Crime Promise
We saw a lot of drama about Harper refusing to take amendments on his crime bills to generate anger toward the opposition pretending they were soft on crime when really it was the wording of his crime bill that concerned them. He kept promising that if he was given a majority then he would be hard on crime. Not.
As soon as he was given a majority government he cut funding for the RCMP and the Gang task force. Surprise! Who would have thought? We knew he was a liar but who would have thought he'd lie about that too? I guess we can't trust a word that comes out of his mouth.
Duceppe was the one who said "We know Stephen Harper is soft on crime. He's soft on crime in his own office." Sad but true.
