Well at least now we know why Stephen Harper was twisting himself into knot, or looking like he was auditioning for the Hunchback of Notre Dame, by refusing to even mention the dreaded 'R' word.
So now that it's official, Canada is in a recession.
He could continue to deny reality.
We still have to wait and see whether the Crown will lay charges against Pamela Wallin now that the RCMP has wrapped up its investigation.
But already Stephen Harper is being asked questions about that other Senate scandal.
And already, and as usual, he is changing his story.

The timing couldn't be worse. Just when Stephen Harper thought he had escaped the stench of the Duffy scandal, and could now focus all his efforts on posing as a Great Economist Leader.
The economy is turning into a living nightmare.
He's having to twist himself into a knot, or a Tim Hortons' kruller, to avoid using the word "recession."

I had been wondering where Jason Kenney had been hiding. But suddenly there he was on TV.
Having apparently traded in his job as Defence Minister, to pose as a Finance Minister.
With a new and flexible definition of the word recession.
It has been several days since the Harper regime suspended the federal scientist Tony Turner for writing and singing the song Harperman.
And as expected it has triggered a debate over whether public servants can be political activists.
And while some Cons claim they can't, and that they must remain loyal to their monstrous master.
The Supreme Court settled that question twenty-four years ago.

Scott Walker is one of the most reactionary Republican candidates, a union basher, an anti-gay bigot, and a fascist if ever there was one.
And now he's trying to out trump Donald Trump.
For while Trump wants to build a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border,
Walker thinks it might be a good idea to build a wall along the Canada-U.S. border.
It has to be the strangest election campaign I have ever known. In the condo jungle where I live it's hard to know one is even underway. There are no lawns, so there are no lawn signs.
I have received only one pamphlet, from the local Con candidate. Which I quickly turned into a paper plane, and floated out of my window.
In the fond hope that it might land on someone's head, and gently remind them that we are in a battle that will determine whether this country lives or dies.

It was a shocking and deeply disturbing sight. And it could only make Canadians wonder whether Stephen Harper was still mentally fit to be Prime Minister.
For there he was today, trying to mock the size of Justin Trudeau's deficit.
But only managing to look more crazy and more desperate.
If Stephen Harper thought he could get away with punishing the scientist Tony Turner for daring to write and and sing the song Harperman, he must be sorry now.
For as I said yesterday it is an outrageous assault on freedom of expression.
And as I predicted it has only made the song even more popular.

About two months ago I played this gentle, joyful song of resistance aimed at the depraved dictator Stephen Harper and his criminal Con regime.
It was written and performed by Tony Turner a scientist at Environment Canada. And I thought it was great. I liked the music and the lyrics, especially the chorus.
We want you gone (gone, gone)
You and your pawn (pawn, pawns)
No more con (con, cons)
Time to move on (on, on)
Get out of town (town, town )
Don’t want you round (round, round)
Harperman, it’s time for you to go.
So you can imagine how I felt when I read that Tony Turner has become the latest victim of that monstrous regime.
