First of all, I would like to wish all my readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Everyone can find something to be thankful for today. We are blessed with so much here in Canada, and the efforts of our brave troops in Afghanistan only serve to underscore that point. Even though many have fallen, and more undoubtedly will, we are thankful for their unselfish commitment to freedom.
However, one year ago things were not looking so great in this country. We had a bloated, complacent, self-serving government that was embroiled in all manner of scandals and a prime minister who thought solving a problem involved simply throwing money at it without any thought of accountability. The operative word was "entitlement" and David Dingwall made that attitude crystal-clear to us all.
Canadian-U.S. relations weakened as Paul Martin delighted in throwing insults at our closest ally just to score political points at home.
Today we have a very competent Prime Minister who is actually trying to make a difference. He recognizes that Canadian politics don't occur in isolation - that everything we do has a global impact. He operates with a results-oriented agenda designed to make effective use of taxpayers' money rather than simply use it to buy friends and create more government boondoggles.
The Sun's Licia Corbella, in an exclusive interview with our new Prime Minister, says Harper's the real deal.
If you are a Harper fan, enjoy the read.
Happy Thanksgiving, and GOD BLESS STEPHEN HARPER!!!
