Yes, M 312 was voted down…

…but I do hope that constituents will remember the names of all of those MPs who voted YEA.

Harper? The worst PM since 1968?

Shurely, the respondents to the poll must have interpreted this as a rhetorical question!

I mean, who even comes close???

And forget about “since 1968”. How about “ever”???

The biggest change observed since 2011 is in the second question. One-in-four Canadians (26%, +7) think Harper has been Canada’s Worst Prime Minister since 1968. Mulroney is a distant second with 17 per cent, followed by Trudeau (11%) and Chrétien (9%).

Harper is judged to be the worst recent head of government by more than a third of Atlantic Canadians (40%) and Quebecers (36%), as well as 26 per cent of British Columbians. Trudeau fares poorly in Alberta (21%), and Mulroney has a negative showing in Atlantic Canada, British Columbia and Ontario.

“Is Harper the worst PM ever” falls in the same category as the following rhetorical questions:

  • What’s another word for Thesaurus?
  • Why do they call them apartments when they are all stuck together?
  • Why are there flotation devices under plane seats, instead of parachutes?
  • Why do hot dogs come ten to a package and hot dog buns only eight?
  • Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?
  • Why do flammable and inflammable mean the same thing?
  • Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?
  • If you see a heat wave, should you wave back?
  • Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?
  • Why is brassiere singular and panties plural?
