Ahead to the Past

What was he thinking? Stephen Harper's cabinet includes a non-elected member, due to be parachuted into the Senate. Wait a sec... what was all that about Liberal arrogance, a culture of entitlement? Overlooked, somehow, was the fact that the Quebec, the province the non-elected Minister of Public Works Michael Fortier, gave Harper ten elected MPs from which to choose a minister. No, Harper has seen fit to pull a stunt that while strictly constitutional, would have made people in 19th century Canada squirm, nevermind 21st century Canadians. I can't imagine how he thought this would be a good idea or escape notice. He has a minority government unlikely to last two years -- does he really imagine the country will have forgotten this gross hypocritical appointment by then?
