The Tipping Point

The Harper government has seen many scandals in past years. Just recently, there is the "in-and-out" funding scheme and an instance of "I am the state," when our prime minister changed "Government of Canada" to "the Harper government." Yes there is backlash, but there is no outrage against the Tories. Maybe it's because the opposition isn't efficient and isn't pressing the Conservatives. Maybe it's because a marginal amount of Canadians are paying attention to politics.

In any case, there will be a tipping point for the Tories and they will pay dearly when the stuff keeps piling up. There is already so much that is against the Conservatives and one day, some day, they will pay the price. Hopefully during the next election.
