Let's face it. Harper's MO is lie, conceal, fabricate

From this week’s Hill Times article by William Stanbury entitled: “Plenty of reasons why ‘political’ is almost always a pejorative adjective”:

Both as opposition leader and as Prime Minister, Stephen Harper told several important lies concerning the taxation of income trusts. The 31.5 per cent tax was announced on Oct. 31, 2006 (see Stanbury, The Hill Times, Jan. 26, 2009). How well does Harper stack up against the standard that “Prime Ministers are expected to observe the highest ethical standards—no lying, no shading the truth, no shifting blame, no weaseling around inconvenient facts”? (Geoffrey Stevens, Guelph Mercury, May 19, 2009).
