Canada's new foreign takeover policy: Harper channels Goldilocks and the Three Bears

In describing the totally incoherent logic behind Stephen Harper's approval of the Nexen acquisition by China, Andrew Coyne writes:

"As Harper explained, the current amount of state ownership in the oil patch, as of 5:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, in just right. But anything more would be too much"

How's that for fairy tale logic? Goldilocks for Prime Minister! The Three Bears for Cabinet Ministers! Our fairy tale future is secure!

The facile nature of Stephen Harper on full display.

As I said yesterday a couple hours before Harper made his statement , we will see a guy drilling holes & bailing at the same time & then ta-da

Bizarre & stoooopid-ass & now we are stuck with it.

Lucky for him the Con nation will vote with their eyes closed.
