As the Prime Minister Stephen Harper goes into his first year with a majority government some Canadians are documenting his every move. Posting things like “The census is how our government determines the state and needs of the country. Harper tried to secretly eliminate the long form census so that he could quite literally make uninformed decisions.” or “Stephen Harper doesn’t know the difference between people from India and First Nations people.”
The idea behind the website shitharperdid.ca is to keep the general public informed. This way when election time comes around we are not just voting, but making informed decisions about who we want representing our country. In a time when social media can make or break a campaign a site like this can be detrimental to a party. But, even with sites like this dominating the online political jungle, the liberals weren’t able to make the comeback they had planned. The new Official Opposition is the NDP and they are now tasked with keeping the government in check. Maybe Jack Layton should check out shitharperdid.ca to find out where to start.
What do you think about sites like this? How do you think Jack Layton will do as the leader of the official opposition? How do you feel after reading shitharperdid.ca? Leave a comment to let us know.
