Another reason why Lord's argument was senseless

Prime Minister Harper just sent the following release:

Statement by the Prime Minister on the results of the September 18, 2006 New Brunswick Election

September 19, 2006
Ottawa, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement on the results of the election in New Brunswick:

“On September 18, the people of New Brunswick exercised their democratic right and elected the Liberal Party of New Brunswick to be their provincial government. On behalf of the Government of Canada, I extend congratulations to Premier-designate Shawn Graham and his team on their successful campaign and I wish him success in tackling issues of importance to New Brunswickers.

“I look forward to working with him to build a strong New Brunswick within a strong Canada.”

As I've argued before, if anything Harper will be more cooperative with a Liberal government as it will boost his credibility and help him win traditionally Tory seats like Fredericton and Saint John in the next election.

I guess you never read the Reform party manifesto created by the great Ray Speaker. ;-)

Lord was just posturing. Harper never had much use for Lord. In the past he felt competition and threat from Lord. Now that Lord is nobody in the world of politics, Harper cares even less.

Well said, 8:27. I couldn't agree more.

What?! Didn't the PM get the memo? It should read "The New Government of Canada... The New Government of New Brunswick."
If he was my pilot I'd can his sorry ass...
