Here's some accountability to consider

"Deregulation should earn Harper a game misconduct." Letters to the editor, tonight's edition:
What should the election be about? Some say the federal Liberals should still be accountable for a sponsorship scandal that happened more than a decade ago when the party was attempting to fight separatism in Quebec. We rightly sent them to the political penalty box for the foul.

Now people are dying of listeriosis because Stephen Harper's Conservative government deregulated Canada's principal meat-packing plant as a test project for further deregulation. I'd say his team deserves a game misconduct penalty and he deserves a lifetime suspension from ever playing again.
