Support From Canadian Major Media For Stephen Harper

Canadian Press and The Toronto Star thinks corporatocracy style ‘stability’, and leaders like Stephen Harper who endorse it, is okay. That kind of stability exists when ‘strong man’ (individual or composite) leaders repress their people so that powerful, entrenched special interests can do what they want without worrying about whether it’s something that harms the people or goes against their wishes. ‘Strong man’ leaders, whether male or female, are those who are willing to sell their souls for personal gain.
