Alberta Views;Sep2012, Vol. 15 Issue 7, p17
The author comments on what Canadian prime minister (PM) Stephen Harper needs to do to spark citizens' interest. He describes the power the PM has to take any event, icon, person, and instantly make millions of Canadians despise it. His stranglehold on power is beginning to fragment on the far right, and he goes after the people he dislikes or fears in straightforward, unimaginative ways.
