And the Senate appointments? Well, that's part of our job-creation strategy...

“As you know, as part of our economic action plan, one of the things we’ve of course done is to step up government advertising. One of the purposes of that has been to support media outlets during the recession that have been particularly hard-hit.”

Stephen Harper, A-Channel Ottawa, Jan. 11.


  • Now that was funny. After hearing Harper give that excuse, I would not be surprised to hear him say that Senate appointments are part of his job-creation strategy!

  • Obviously, with everyone off enjoying their Harper Holiday, the government is having a hard time coming up with reasonable excuses and explanations for shutting down Parliament that Canadians will buy.

    So come on all ye patriotic Canadians (at least those deemed not to be part of the elite*). Your government needs you. You too can help your government in its time of need by suggesting more rational excuses that Canadians might actually believe.

    Canada's Well-Past-New Government has set up a new action plan for this called Suggestions To Underscore Prorogation's Importance Daily and excuse suggestions are being coordinated here.

    Please do your partiotic duty. If you don't, you clearly hate our brave troops.

    * See Tony Clement for details.

  • Wow! That has to be one of the dumbest things hes ever said.

    Just to be clear hes claiming that his government spent more on taxpayer funded ads that promote his political agenda then was necssary under the guise of "economic recovery"? There are just so many things worng with that statement. How the hell did this clown become Prime Minister of such a great country!

  • Your government -- creating partisan TV ad blitzes and wasting valuable forest resources so you can keep us in business -- after the Harper holiday.
