Thank you, Mr. Harper – worth repeating.

“Information is the lifeblood of a democracy. Without adequate access to key information about government policies and programs, citizens and parliamentarians cannot make informed decisions and incompetent or corrupt governments can be hidden under a cloak of secrecy.”
Stephen Harper,
Montreal Gazette, 2005

Our March 13 posting this year, “Democracy? Stephen Harper’s nimbyism”, is an earlier reference to his 2005 comments in the Montreal newspaper. Check it out.

In the meantime of course, Stephen Harper is correct. But, do we really need to list all the ways and means he and the government he leads has stymied access to all manner of information, hiding “under a cloak of secrecy”?

Stephen Harper’s own words condemn him, his party, and the government he heads.
