Winnipeg Sun - - COMMENT -

In this elec­tion year, it is ir­ri­tat­ing to re­flect on what could have been if the Cana­dian vot­ers had re-elected Stephen Harper (Mas­ters de­gree in eco­nomics) rather than Pierre Lite (Mas­ters de­gree in noth­ing). The fed­eral bud­get would be bal­anced, we would have con­trol over our bor­ders, we would not have a car­bon tax, Trans Moun­tain pipe­line and North­ern Gate­way would be in op­er­a­tion, in­vest­ment dol­lars would not be flee­ing to the U.S. We would be re­spected mem­bers of the G-7 and G-20, rather than the comic re­lief. The only “ac­com­plish­ment” of the Trudeau gov­ern­ment was to le­gal­ize pot, which has made us a world leader at least in psy­choac­tive drugs.

JOHN H. MA­CLEAN Ahh, the glory days, when we could al­ways be proud of our PM on the in­ter­na­tional stage.
