Lies and broken promises, part IX

In December 2008, in order to turn public opinion against a coalition of NDP and Liberals, Harper is attempting to present such a coalition as illegal, undemocratic, even "unholy," especially if it involves the Bloc in any way.

He presently denies he ever considered forming such a coalition while in opposition.

That is a lie - (article based on an in-depth interview with Harper in 2004)

But the real news is Harper's confirmation that -- while he would not allow other parties to have Ministers in his government -- he was open to working with the other two parties to form an alternative government in a move remarkably close to what he is today calling a "separatist coalition."

What a great site, I hope you realize what a daunting task you have set yourself.
I set myself a similar task keeping a track of only his broken promises in his first term, it tends to wear you down after a while, its really quite depressing, its no wonder that voter turn out is so low.
You have set yourself an even bigger task keeping track of his lies.Good Luck! you will need it.
My site is I will put a link to yours on it soon, feel free to use any material you wish.
