Mike Harris, Montreal Economic Institute, December 2002 (excerpt):
Thinking about things from a new and different perspective is never easy. It takes courage, conviction and the strength to know that in taking a new and innovative course, you are making change for the better… Genuine leaders are the one who do the right things.
Stephen Harper, House of Commons, February 2003 (excerpt):
Thinking about things from a new and different perspective is not about reading the polls and having focus group tests. It is never easy because it takes courage, conviction and the strength to know that taking a new and innovative course is going to make change for the better… Genuine leaders are the ones who do the right thing.
The video evidence:
Hmm… Speaking of doing the right thing… If I were a student and plagiarized even once, I would risk being tossed out of school on my ass. In this case, Dion has the right idea: expel him!
Ironically, as the Liberals point out, Harper is apparently only plagiarizing from small-‘c’ conservative governments that have failed. I hope Steve continues to emulate them, particularly in the failure department.
