Deceit does not impress

Victoria, British Columbia - Thursday, June 3, 2010 by: Eugene Parks

The Prime Minister's moxy for deceit is again going international.

This past week he met with British PM Cameron claiming Canada was so stable that bank bailouts were not needed during the recent financial crises.

But in fact, the Harper government bailed out housing mortgages to the tune of at least $75 billion (possibly as high as $500 billion).

Naturally PM Cameron simply ignored Mr. Harper's advice on bank management.

Factless deceit does not go over well with allies.  If the PM keeps it up at the G20 this month, world leaders will disbelieve anything the current Canadian government reports.
