Take a look at this brand new 24/Stephen video!

With the longest election campaign in recent Canadian history is now under way, 24/Stephen takes a look back at some Conservative leader Stephen Harper’s proudest moments in the past session:

How many proud moments do you remember?

1. Tony Clement: Took $45.7 million from the G8/G20 Legacy Fund and spent it on gazebos, public washrooms and beautification projects nowhere near the event. 

2. Nigel Wright: Harper’s former Chief of Staff $90,000 cheque to Mike Duffy

3. Leona Aglukkaq: Ignored questions about people in her riding looking for food in a garbage dump, read the newspaper instead

4. Peter MacKay: Turned the procurement of F-35 fighter jets into a fiasco. 

5. Patrick Brazeau: Harper’s Senate appointee got himself into trouble, plead guilty to drug possession and assault.

6. Bernard Valcourt: At the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report, the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs Bernard Valcourt would not stand during a standing ovation in response to a call for action on missing and murdered indigenous women.

7. Julian Fantino: “What the frig is wrong with that guy?” asked one veteran. Seriously.

8. Dean Del Mastro: Harper’s former ethics spokesperson convicted of election fraud.

9. Mike Duffy: The Conservatives’ biggest fundraiser on the “rubber chicken circuit” dragged the PMO down with him.

10. Rob Anders: “Canada’s worst MP” once fell asleep in the House of Commons

11. Paul Calandra: Broke down in tears apologizing for giving irrelevant answers to the House of Commons questions on Canadian military action, although he said he would probably do it again.

Ladies and gentlemen, Stephen Harper is beginning to panic

Have you noticed anything a little off about Stephen Harper today?

September 14, 2015

Did you notice anything a little off about Stephen Harper on Monday?

The first clue was a jittery tweet sent by the Conservative leader accusing the opposition of wanting to create “economic chaos,” as well as floating the idea that the opposition wishes to run deficits until the end of time itself:

Harper, on the other hand, ran deficits for six years in a row.

And the second clue?
