The "Page" Was Out Of Line!
In our democracy we are allowed to have opinions, and I encourage all those who have opinions to express them. I do on the other hand am against a page who works for the government voicing her opinion. She may have a political opinion and i would be happy to hear it, but disturbing the senate isn't the way to do it. It is not her job as an employee of the Government to voice her opinion, but if she wants she can make it her duty to voice her opinion to the world by starting I don't know a Blog!!!! I would be happy to read it, but unfortunately she decided to voice her opinion in the wrong way. What she did rather than pointing to Harper's mistakes she rather deflected it to her, and it is a shame. A true shame that people feel that the only way to be heard is to do something crazy like this. She made the issue of the day not Harper's policy on the economy, environment or the deficit. She made the issue of the day herself. She didn't support her cause she destroyed her cause. I don't think we should be supporting people to voice their opinion this way. Even Green party leader Elisabeth May agrees.
