Strength and stability in action
There are some days when political news should be digested collectively, all the separate pieces part of a larger picture. Today is one of those days. I find myself thinking: what would Canada be like, if voters cared a whit about all this democracy, state-control stuff?
The Harper government has gone further than any previous government in its control of information, exercising political control over all communications by public servants, so that every bit of information that goes out the door is first considered for its political impact.
The answer to that last headline question, by the way, is "anyone." Hope that doesn't upset your day. Please resume whatever you were doing before the distraction of these reports from the front.
