What was the government saying no to? Harper asked again and again, and he actually did a pretty good job exposing their Big NO as a hollow piece of propaganda.
Harper knows that rhetoric is used to hide the truth.
He knows the importance of saying one thing and doing another.
Hes a politician for gods sake!
But each time Harper asked, he met with obfuscation.
Both Martin and Pettigrew just avoided his point blank questions by simply hiding behind the shield of Canadas sacrosanct loyalty to NORAD.
