L. Ian Macdonald in the Gazette today: "Bernier affair raises doubts about Harper's competence."
The deeper and more enduring problem for Prime Minister Stephen Harper is that it raises questions about his own judgment, and the core attribute of the competence of his government.MacDonald trots out a bit of what we've seen thus far. He questions the wisdom of the European trip last week while the Bernier affair imploded and backhandedly points out the weakness of the PM's front bench. He contributes to a growing concern, further raising the issue of the supposed Harper competence on the economy given the decline in GDP growth for Canada in this year's first quarter.
For what it's worth, there it is.
