Stephen Harper feigns ignorance . . .
Now our illustrious Prime Minister is trying to avoid taking any blame for the Suaad Mohamud situation by suggesting that he and his government didn't know anything about it. Thus the Prime Minister feels that he has chosen the lesser of two evils: admit total ignorance of what what is going on rather than admit that his government is inherently racist, lacks all compassion, and is in bed with dubious foreign governments. Only there is a problem here. By claiming ignorance Stephen Harper just announced to all Canadians and the world in general that he and his senior staff don't read newspapers or watch the nightly news. Because obviously if one read the paper regularly and watched only a couple of news broadcasts a week you could not have missed the story of Suaad Mohamud. So which do we really prefer, a Prime Minister who is a cold, uncompassionate, self-serving, racists, or a Prime Minister who doesn't bother keeping in touch with even the widely broadcast news stories??
