Stephen Harper is a cad:
Dion: Since the Prime Minister doesn't have the courage to ask the Minister of Defence to do the honorable thing, will the Minister of Defence not resign himself.
Harper: The Minister of National Defence is a veteran of the Canadian Forces. He has served this country courageously in uniform for 32 years and when the Leader of the Opposition is able to stand in uniform and serve his country, then I'll care about his opinion on the performance of the Minister.
Following the logic, Canadians should disregard Harper's defence of O'Connor, since his opinion is irrelevant, due to his lack of service. As a matter of fact, Harper's boorish, partisan speeches in defence of the "brave men and women in uniform" are meaningless, given his civilian background.
Everytime the Prime Minister brings the discourse to the gutter, Conservatives remind us all that parliament has always been raucous, always been less than a shining example for Canadians. Bull. This man, his tactics, have NO PEER.
