Harper's Foul

What should the next federal election be about?

Some say the Liberals should still be accountable for a sponsorship scandal that happened more than a decade ago when attempting to fight separatism in Quebec.

We rightly sent them to the political penalty box for the foul and some want to keep them there forever.

In contrast to today, people are dying now of listeriosis because Prime Minister Stephen Harper deregulated Canada's principal meat packaging plant as a "test" project for further deregulation.

I'd say Harper's team deserves a game misconduct penalty and he deserves a lifetime suspension from ever playing again.

Political penalties should be proportional to the misconduct. The ultimate political referee, you and me, voters, should send PM Harper out of the political arena for good.
