On Saturday the Toronto Star ran an editorial with the usual stuff about Prime Minister Stephen Harper's hidden agenda.
And in the process the paper took a swipe at my old organization the National Citizens Coalition.
So I took a swipe back in the form of a letter to the editor, which was published today:
You state that Prime Minister Stephen Harper "staked out quite radical positions" while leading the National Citizens Coalition.
What's radical about pushing for lower taxes, wanting a stronger defence, fighting for free political expression and for the democratic rights of unionized employees?
Those are some of the positions Harper "staked out" during his time at the NCC, positions a lot of Canadians would deem mainstream.
