Hope For Canada

Posted by on January 27 at 13:41 PM

From the Vancouver Sun:

Canadians are far too “liberal and hedonistic” to change their politics overnight despite their election of Stephen Harper’s Tory government, says a far-right-wing American commentator.
Paul Weyrich examines the result of Monday’s election in an essay posted to the website of the Free Congress Foundation, the Washinton-based think tank that he heads.
“The people of Canada have become so liberal and hedonistic that the public ethic in the country immediately could not reversed,” Weyrich writes.
But shift is possible.
“It will take time. But with leadership it well may be possible to change the public ethic.”
