Harper's majority record after one year
Today we’ll be talking about the Harper government’s record one year after it won its majority, and we’ll debate a hot topic in Toronto – what to do with the elephants at the zoo.
Conservative majority, one year later
It’s a mixed bag for the Harper government, one year after it won a majority. A few unpopular moves have left the Tories and NDP in a dead heat in recent polls, including free-spending cabinet ministers and sudden changes to old-age security. But there’s no federal election imminent, so should the Conservatives be concerned?
The elephant in the room
The three elephants at the Toronto Zoo are caught in a fight between the zoo and city council. Council arguably should have left the issue alone and allowed its experts at the zoo decide where to move the elephants, instead of wading into the debate in favour of moving the pachyderms to a PAWS facility. But now that we’ve gone so far down that path, is there any alternative?
