Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Uncomfortably close to the truth.

This Chinese vendor’s remarks about Steve aren’t that far off the mark at times:

The Harpers’ destination was a hole-in-the-wall shop called the Song Lin Tea Garden, where shop assistants Yu Lijuan and Wei Amin were waiting to welcome them. They said they knew “Canada’s Chairman,” was coming: local Canadian officials had alerted them in advance…

With Harper’s muzzling of his caucus and attempted manipulation of certain media events, he comes uncomfortably close to acting like the Canadian equivalent of a Chinese chairman. Another observation of mine; Harper prefers controlled public events here in Canada, so it’s no surprise he feels comfortable in a Chinese-staged event for him as well.

  • It is fairly standard to give shopkeepers a heads up that a politician is glad-handing in the short future.

    Well that one should stick; “Chairman Steve”…it fits.

    I’ve been saying Harper wants to run a police state and his disregard for the rules of law, Human Rights, parliamentary procedure and coupled with his control of the media proves that he wants to be the Chairman of Canada.
