This just in: Today, November 30th, Harper's tone changed with no warning at about half way through Question Period and he just announced, matter of factly, as if he had already known all about it, that he intended to send in a third party to straighten out the rabble that was causing all of this trouble.
As I watched him in the House over the last few weeks as the demands became louder and louder that he must act, I realised that he would indeed continue to accuse these victims of committing fraud. I fear that he will find the missing money, even if he has to plant the evidence of it himself.
He is perfectly capable of never admitting that he is largely to blame for the inaction and indeed he will very likely continue to feign that he has no clue that this is in any way his doing.
Is he still in denial? No, I think he knows that he is responsible for all of the suffering he allows and that which he so often causes. That was the impression that I got while watching it. It occurred to me that his ingenuine denial is not caused by any inability to see reality. His denials are due to the fact that he is shameless and will do and say anything to continue his charade.
He likes to fly in luxury, surrounded by flunkies, yes-men, personal groomers and the like. He enjoys being the center of attention and needed to be seen and admired (at least in his own head) at the Grey Cup game. But to feign blindness and make the good citizens of Attawapiskat wait while he amuses himself and spends the price of a dozen good houses to do it, is clearly psychotic.
So, without any debate, our prime minister finally just lost his patience and, flying by the seat of his pants, our Mr. Harper simply took the money out of their hands. End of story. It was obvious while watching it that he was making this proclamation because he is convinced that they cannot be trusted to stretch the 'generous' amount of money that he has so 'generously' given them. He mat even think of it as his money.
