the hysteria of the left and their media stooges. Harper's critics need to chill BY JOHN GORMLEY, THE LEADER-POST FEBRUARY 24, 2012 While some observers note a changed Canada under Stephen Harper's Conservative government, what's changing may not be the body politic so much as the over-the-top reaction from pundits, critics and the political class. Ranging somewhere on a scale between profound sadness and all-out hysteria, it's fascinating to watch some in the political elites and media who cannot abide Harper. In part, this stems from their belief that this is no longer "their" Canada, the one they think reflects their own world view - a more cosmopolitan and liberal set of values and tastes than the rest of us.
