Stephen Harper has a perverse sense of humour

This is quite a good joke Harper has played. Not only has Pierre Poliviere indeed been named to be a new minister in today’s big cabinet shuffle, Pierre Poilievre has been named Minister of state for democratic reform. One of my Liberal colleagues who is a staffer on the Hill was joking a day or 2 ago that perhaps this is where P.P would end up.. and lo and behold, Harper has decided to do so (leaving my Liberal colleague aghast that his facetious guess turned out to be true).

I for one hope the PMO keeps sending him out there, because he certainly won’t be the one to put this fire out and/or convince people there’s some grand conspiracy between Elections Canada, the Liberals, the CBC, the Russians, the Mafia, the Martians, or whoever else they decide to blame […]
