“At worst, he personally ordered it done and chose the people who
executed the plan. At the very least, he fostered an attitude within
the party […], chose the managers of the people who committed
these crimes and completely and utterly failed to exercise any
oversight, supervision or leadership.
In the end, it doesn’t really matter where [his] actions or lack of
them fall on that scale. He is the leader and a leader is
responsible for the actions of the people he leads.
If he had a right or honourable bone in his body, he’d admit that
and resign immediately.”
– Stephen Harper, during the Gomery investigation into corruption in the Paul Martin Liberal government
I don’t usually post about politics and politicians but this Stephen Harper quote needs to be seen by Canadians as they consider the corruption trial of Conservative Senator Mike Duffy and the leadership role Stephen Harper played. The question seems to be clearly raised by the man himself, does the Conservative Party leader have an honorable bone in his body?
