The Canadian Senate Scandal Will NOT Go Away
The Harper Government has been tainted by a serious ethics scandal that overshadows any achievements in regard to the economy and the major free trade deal with Europe. Canadians will welcome some consumer benefits now being introduced but they have all party support and obviously appear to be a pre-election ploy. Meanwhile Justin Trudeau can not be discredited by the attack ads and appears fresh and clean. Canadians are getting tired and are ready to welcome change. But the next federal election is still a year and a half away and anything can happen.
