Don’t trust Harper

To the editor:

Stephen Harper’s current contention that only the party with the most parliamentary seats can legitimately govern is wrong.

In fact, Harper, in a letter also signed by Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe in 2004, wrote to then Gov. Gen. Adrienne Clarkson advising that should Paul Martin’s minority government fall, options other than calling an election were available.

The only reasonable option would have been a minority Conservative government led by Harper and supported by the other two parties.

Canadians should not trust this man whose truth is so variable and so utterly self-serving.
