More Harper Half-Truths

News today from the Canadian Press of another lie from the Prime Minister – this time around water testing in Canada’s North.

When Harper was asked about the cuts in August he said:

“That was not authorized and the Minister has ordered those to be started back up again.”
– Globe and Mail, August 27, 2011

But documents from 2011 contradict the PM, and show that the Minister of the Environment Peter Kent was informed about upcoming cuts to quality assessments. Kent was also warned about the cuts by a Minister from the government of the Northwest Territories.

From inventions about NDP policies to the food safety debacle to water testing, one thing is clear – Stephen Harper’s Conservatives love to lie to Canadians.
