Remember how Stephen Harper use to always talk about freedom and democracy, and how terrible it was that the Liberals forced its members to fall into the party line or be removed from cabinet?
That’s when he was running and sucking people into voting for him.
Now, he has passed an edict that his ministers cannot speak to the media or send out any kind of communications without first running it by him. He has also reduced access to his government to the media. His reason is that he wants to get the government’s main points out to the public, not, oh, the ones the public is actually interested in.
Sound familiar? Let’s see, there was this little guy, looked like Charlie Chaplin but had a nastier demeanor . . .
