Subject: Harper, like Martin, faces the court of the public opinion

The Editor
National Post

Copy to: The Hon. Sinclair Stevens, Leader, PC Party : I am pleased that you are running candidates to stop Harper via vote siphoning. After a decade of Harper's autocratic rule, time for change and renewal has arrived.

Harper, like Martin, faces the court of the public opinion

Re "Oh, Harper, how we misjudge," by Andrew Coyne, "Now Conservatives know how Liberals felt," by John Moore and "Disunite the right," by Jackson Doughart (Aug. 20).

When former Prime Minister Paul Martin faced an election in 2006, the economy was booming and the budget was in surplus. And yet, he went down in defeat because most voters did not buy his contention that, as finance minister, he didn't know that former prime minister Jean Chretien was spending millions of dollars for the sponsorship program. In 2015, Prime Minister Stephen Harper faces the same public skepticism over his contention that he didn't know that his own chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote a cheque of $90,000 to repay alleged overspending by his handpicked, now suspended, Senator Mike Duffy. This explains why even a centre-right party is running candidates to stop Harper from winning.

As reported by Vancouver-based The Tyee News, a centre-right political party says it has had enough of Stephen Harper and will run candidates in ridings where Conservative candidates barely won in 2011, in the hope of siphoning off enough votes to allow for a Liberal or NDP win. The Progressive Canadian Party was formed by some former Progressive Conservative party members who were upset at their party's merger with the Canadian Alliance. The leader of the party is Sinclair Stevens, a former PC minister under Brian Mulroney. "Our feeling is that if we have a credible candidate, they may take enough votes so that the Conservatives won't make it," Stevens said.

Like Paul Martin before him, Stephen Harper faces the court of the public opinion where his political future will be decided.
