Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

It’s that time of year again, where the sweet sounds of slander riddle the airwaves. Harper’s conservative party has been hard at work to vilify the Liberals in their recent smear campaign, again displaying this countries tact for diplomatic name-calling. However, the conservatives have just given their opposition plenty of ammunition with recent reports of cheating – “Elections Canada, the national, non-partisan institution charged by statute with overseeing the clean and accountable conduct of national elections, believes the Harper Conservatives incorrectly re-directed $1.3 million to unlawfully amplify its 2006 advertising budget” (Scott Reid, http://www.cbc.ca). A wise man told me once that there is a fine line between democracy and communism, and that line rests solely on the integrity of information – concealing or revealing agendas. Is it too much to ask for an honest politician or is that just a modern-day oxymoron?
