Stephen Harper will win because he’s told the story people want to hear, and because he deserves to win. We Liberals have lost touch – with Canadians, with each other – and we deserve to lose. If you’ll forgive the obvious metaphor, we deserve some time in the penalty box. One day, we’ll be back (and I’ll be there to help them, if they want me).
I don’t fear Harper, and neither should you. This is the greatest country in the world, and I believe – I know – he wants to make it better, just like the rest of us.
