Harper "should go to Tim Hortons" - Rick's Rant on Harper's Holiday

... so much so, that I've transcribed the entire rant. The video is down below.

So how about those polls, eh?

For the first time in a very long time, the Liberals and the Conservatives are essentially tied. Well, at least they're within the margin of error.

Now polls never tell the full story, but this much is certain - whenever the party in power drops 15 points in 15 days, you can be assured of one thing: someone in charge did something really stupid.

In this case, the Prime Minister thought he could suspend Parliament for 3 months and get away with it because, in his words, "Canadians just don't care". Boy, was he wrong. Wow. He should get out more. Maybe go to Tim Hortons. Get a feel for the place.

See this is what I love about Canada. Yes, we are apathetic. But the minute someone tries to use our apathy against us, suddenly we start to care big time.

It's funny the Prime Minister doesn't get this. Instead, he just keeps saying "Oh, don't worry. Yes, I've suspended Parliament, but don't worry: I'm hard at work."

You know what? Big deal. Of course, he's at work. He's the Prime Minister. I'm sure Raul Castro is going to put in a full day tomorrow running Cuba. We just like to think we set the bar just a little bit higher than that up here.

Bottom lin is, Canadians got together. We elected 308 Members of Parliament to go to Ottawa to represent us and
one Member of Parliament sent them packing.

Prime Minister, with all due respect, I know it's your job to run the country. I'm glad you're hard at it. But it's the voters who get to send the members home.

And with poll numbers like this, you might want to keep that in mind.
