    waiting mode. Elections happen in just over a year from now(October 19th, 2015), and signs of electioneering are happening already.

    Harper's Folly is apparent to everyone. His barely skirting being investigated for tampering with the last elections ( robo-calls used to misinform voters of polling places), three of his cronies in the Senate being investigated for fraud who have pointed the finger at the PMO. He's a bully with right wing Christian leanings. I could go on and on about how bad he is, but that would fill pages.

    Re the Weather Service:...I don't know how that would work. Our weather service is a part of the government office ( Ministry) of Environment Canada. It is more closely tied to and answerable to that Ministry that it's US counterpart. That's why Harper was able to tell them to zip it on climate change.

      OK, so we watch & wait from south of the border, and cheer for progressives in Canada, and hope y'all throw out Harper and his cronies and elect someone sane.

      Between now and then we can also hope that his legal troubles catch up with him.

      We got the future back. Uh-oh.

        Meanwhile we throw whatever stumbling blocks we can find in his way. All the usual stuff; protests, petitions,etc.

        Then we vote! And kick his ass out.
