Does a confidence man start a caper with advertising he/she hates and wants to destroy his target? Or targets? No, they don’t..that’s why they are a confidence men/women.

Just imagine if there was a world wide group of confidence men/women attacking targets/Nations..How terrible the world would be?…

Sound familiar?

Paul Dixon——Wow, can you ever tinker with words in order to change their meaning.

" Open Borders are OK " means to me that Open Borders are OK, unless Harper says " But I don’t really mean that" and goes on to interpret what he meant; that is not your job to interpret it by telling us that this is what you people have to believe because Paul Dixon said that he meant it this way.

The same with the statements," I am an admirer of the EU" means to me that Harper is an admirer of the EU. Did Harper only mean that he likes the color of their flag? If so, that’s OK, but he should have said so, otherwise Paul Miller’s and my interpretation are as likely to be as correct as yours.

I was a steady contributor of Harper for years; he was much better than Chretien, and 10 times better than what we now have. I only wish that he had a high gear like Trump, for the reasons below.

In Canada, Prime Minister Harper put in around 4 Supreme Court Justices. All of them voted against everything Harper ever wanted, especially PIPELINES where Harper built 0 out of 4, and he was too mild to use his power to over-ride their decisions, with the Non-Withstanding Clause which was his right.

Harper had it all going for him, however he seemed to choke when he got close to the goal line.

Paul Miller and Ron Joseph. A couple of corrections to what you posted. You need to listen more closely to what is being said.
Paul: You wrote that Harper said: “Open borders are okay”. Actually what he said was: “…things we can do without closing our borders or becoming zenophobic.” Having “open borders” and “not closing our borders” are NOT the the same thing. I do not think that we need to close our borders to any immigration and refugees (which I suspect was his meaning), but I certainly am opposed to “open borders”.
Ron: You wrote that Harper said: “I’m a fan of the EU.” Actually what he said was: “…in many ways I am an admirer of the EU.” These are not the same thing! Personally I am not a fan of the EU, for various reasons, but there are certainly good points about the EU. It is just that over the years the EU has far exceeded its original mandate and has violated the spirit of what it was set up to do. Example – the latest immigration catastrophe.
I am not bowing down to Harper. I am simply trying to point out that when you are quoting someone, make sure that your quotes are correct. Do not interpret quotes and then claim your interpretations as the quotes themselves. This is exactly what the left wing media and politicians have been doing to the right/conservatives. Let’s rise above this nonsense!

Its more than time for a new party in Canada.
Harper is a grown up, and for the time, was a fine PM. He makes Justin look like a hormonal adolescent, all Harper needs to do is show up, and the contrast makes Justin look like the idiot he is. If Harper ran today, I would not vote for him, if Bernier were the alternative. He is right to recognize and say that people are not happy, but it needs to be stated more strongly. We are tired of this globalist sht show. Sick to the back teeth with it.
John Desat, funny that the one comment of yours that got through, is in all caps and a complaint and not a political comment. It is a glitch on your part or you are a troll just causing sht. I have been here from the beginning and its not an echo chamber here. All opinions are welcome. There is no shadow banning. Except paid political disrupters, and if we are lucky they are identified and banned outright.

John Desat naaah it is just you.

Any chance somebody at the rebel will do a review of Harper’s book?

Or maybe Harper can come here to promote his book.

Paul Miller 5 hr. ago….Paul I got the same impression , that Harper seemed to be on a teeter-totter. Globalist / Conservative….Globalist / Conservative. He even said, " I’m a fan of the EU ", a place that is dying, thank goodness.

Maybe Bernier is correct when he says, “no real Conservatives in Scheer’s Party.”

Another good interview with Stephen Harper.
Sure wish he was still our Commander and Chief.
Can you imagine how great N. America would be with D.J. Trump and S. Harper?

I never paid attention to Stephen Harper, but he seems to be another globalist. He gave a speech at the G7 where he said Canada giving up some of its sovereignty was necessary, and he admitted that open borders are okay at 4:35 of this video.

And now we have Chretien chiming in as if he was a great leader trying to piss Trump off . He has 1 thing correct only it is Canada on the brink not the USA .

Keith I agree %100 and he never said uh once .

The jacket and glasses are a great look for John.

Islam is only popular to a certain few and if left unchecked will be popular to a certain majority.

Somebody needs to tell these Americans that we in Canada do not refer to our former prime ministers as “Prime Minister.”
Oh yea, and only George W. Bush is allowed to call him Steve.

Listening to Stephan Harper speak in his calm and reassuring voice, is akin to waking up from a bad dream. Our Resident Clown, Trudeau is nothing but a nightmare on dancing feet.
