Harper’s losing his touchPosted: January 16, 2014
Duffy, Wallin and Brazeau. Rob Anders. Then Patrick Brown runs a marathon and tries to bill taxpayers. Last week on Sun I talked about Harper’s once iron grip on his caucus was loosening. And now Cheryl Gallant has made the news again, actively campaigning against government policy.
As we get closer to the next federal general election (just over a year and a half away!), and as rumours suggest Harper may take the proverbial walk in the snow, this is going to happen more and more. Particularly on the party’s right flank, which has never been comfortable with Harper’s moderate conservatism. Will Harper leave? Who knows. My two cents: if he fears losing – or being reduced to a minority – the next general, he just might.
