If these kinds of things keep happening to Harper, he has reason to worry. The next few scandals could be the straw that broke the camel's back. In fact, the recent EKOS poll already shows Harper's numbers hurt by the recent scandals, especially the Guergis one. This shows that Harper hasn't really done a good job at distancing himself from the scandals around him. Not that any smart Canadian wouldn't see through his antics. All we need is big ideas and more of the truth around Harper's government revealed to whittle down his support.
