The political reality of Canadian federal elections is that Canadian voters are voting for the leader of the party, his policies, his character, and his ability to govern and implement his policies. In the last three federal elections, the voters chose Harper over Dion and Ignatieff.

The Duffy Scandal: Harper Will Emerge Stronger Than Ever

Mitch Wolfe | Posted 12.24.2013 | Canada Politics
Mitch Wolfe

After news that Harper intervened in Mike Duffy's expense scandal, I watched CBC's "The National" with Peter Mansbridge. Mansbridge was positively gleeful as he reported how Duffy had implicated Harper. Finally Mansbridge and the CBC had Harper, the bane of CBC's existence, on the proverbial ropes. But if you look at the facts objectively, rather than through a visceral anti-Harper prism, it becomes clear that Harper is blameless. I predict the prime minister will ride out this Ottawa-centric media blip. And emerge stronger and more politically powerful than ever.
