Editor, The Times:
Corporate Canada, especially the sector involved in extracting non-renewable resources, expects great things from Canada’s majority Conservative government. Prime Minister Harper is the political action figure the multinational executives have been dreaming about for years. Harper, the Superman-wannabe, has already demonstrated his ability to leap over environmental regulations in a single bound. He can also fly (off the handle) when confronted with questions about global warming. Some people think he is a (Dodo) bird; others, a (combat) plane.
Just like the promoters of the notoriously expensive F-35s, Harper prefers to scorch his critics with political hot air rather than give straightforward answers to straightforward questions. Comic-book Superman knows his powers will decline if he is exposed to Kryptonite. Stephen Harper knows his powers will decline if Canadians are exposed to the truth.
