Toronto Star obtains Harper's 'secret plans'

Put all the "Stephen Harper is retiring" rumours to bed. An anonymous source has sent the Toronto Star a "secret document" laying out the Conservative Party re-election strategy for 2015.
The 70-page slide show presentation to the Conservative party’s national council last weekend by executive director Dimitri Soudas appears to acknowledge that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has work to do to reach out to Canadians and win their trust for another government.
The PowerPoint presentation is a quarter-by-quarter blueprint of timelines and actions to be taken through 2014.

It defines what success looks like: “Ensure we don’t wake up on October 20, 2015 with Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister.”

The presentation, according to the Star, includes a lot of detail.

Less attacks and more substance, that would go a long way.
The only way I am voting Conservative is if the Bloc has a chance winning the county and they are the only one to beat the separatists.

The only way I'm voting conservative is if they run a candidate in my riding. If they don't I'm voting Libertarian.

They are keeping a strong public face, but this is pretty embarrassing for the Conservative party to have all this info leaked.

It is probably even more embarrassing for the NDP though. These documents are very preoccupied with Justin and the Liberals, seemingly not seeing Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition as any sort of a threat.

If Harper keeps up with his obsession to crush Trudeau, he may hand Mulcair the job....

If Harper was smart , he would leave Justin alone..... let him hang himself , all he needs is a little rope, but that is just it with political campaigning, it is repeat the message till the drones are programmed.

When in the hell are we going to discuss the issues that confront us
You know the economy, the constant intrusion into stripping people of
their rights in an open society, in the name of security.
The gutting of social programs and the dismantling of our society
The over spending in almost every department
the way veterans are being treated
the problems with job training and advertising programs that don't exist
the Senate scandal and this is a situation where a core promise of this
government was breached. They promised to clean it up and its now
worse.
There are all kinds of issues. But instead they plan to call people names
they are going to say Trudeau doesn't have any real experience. You know
that my be true. However look what is being done by people with experience.
Could he do worse?
Yes some of this is accusatory and the reason is the current government has
made everything that way in the last decade.
Time for issues not this nonsense we have been dealing with. The behavior
of Harper is almost enough to make you want to vote Trudeau.

I saw it on the interwebs so it must be true!

Justin Over His Head | Justin Trudeau is in way over his head

Just look at that goatee. How could a man who had a goatee be Prime Minister!?

Actually I have a real problem I have to decide whether my vote will go to Justin
or Tom I could not bring myself to vote for Harper and the way he has attempted
to divide people for his own ambition.
Even the crazy policy on pot, is enough to allow you to understand how his little
mind works. I am not into pot but I understand the war on it is over we just keep
funding the war. Instead of saying we learned a lot from prohibition and are just
going to decriminalize it and move on. No they are going about spending as much
money on setting up silly rules and regulations and procedures just like they did
when booze was made legal again they spent millions before abandoning that
position too. We have to stop making criminals out of people when the law is going
to change anyway.
What if they actually made it legal and the American Customs asked million of people
if they smoked it and they all said yes? Do you think it would be a main question at the
boarder anymore? in view of the fact several States are chaning laws we and America
the Federal govenment America will be on the wrong side of history

Pfffft, Colpy. No one here pays any attention at all to the Toronto Star. Or so they say, time and time again.

Secret plans that Harper still wants l;eadership of the party and country? Now that is shocking news! Is he a masochist that he wants another stab at the PM's chair? Either he's totally mad or he actually wants the power. Absolutely astounding. Something must be wrong with the news.

Yeah. There are more than enough upset people within the party right now that it isn't that hard to imagine how this happened.

Remember, politics and reality are often far from the same thing.

All that really matters for the Conservatives on the pot issue is that there are enough people against it to make it an effective tool to mobilize their base and raise money.

You should see some of the mailers that these guys send to their base. "If you don't give us $5, online pedophiles will smoke pot with your kids while dancing on the graves of the victims of a violent crime!"

The Conservative Party knows they have little to no chance of winning over supporters of other parties at this stage of the game. They are struggling just to keep their own base happy, so their current efforts are really focused on preventing supporters from leaving them by making the alternatives look super scary to them.

Hey...I'M a pissed off Reformer.

You are probably correct though, but I am curious.......

I doubt that....but perhaps hacked into a computer.......

Probably a source.......but it still has disturbing parallels with the watergate thing.

I would guess a hack over an inside leak, myself.

Really? How so?

I missed an opportunity on that one. "Violent crime" should be "unreported crime".

"If you don't give us $5, online pedophiles will smoke pot with your kids while dancing on the graves of the victims of an unreported crime!"

That's better.
