The Economist muses on Canada's neutered Conservative PM

At Gerry Nicholls' blog "Making Sense With Nicholls" I was directed to read an article in The Economist on Canada's Prime Minister.

The article (CLICK HERE) describes our evangelical, libertarian PM as an incrementalist. One who is willing to sell out on his true agenda in the name of political expediency...getting elected.

Speculation at the end of the article is about a bolder Harper emerging were he ever to win a majority. But the author of the article then ponders whether that's something Canadians actually want, or perhaps we prefer Harper neutered by minority rule.

The comments on Mr. Nicholls' blog (part of are predictable, with conservative types all a chatter over this negative but apt description of Stephen Harper.
