Stephen Harper's 5th anniversary in power

2011-01-24

Queen’s University political studies professor Ned Franks is available to talk about Stephen Harper’s performance as the fifth anniversary of the Progressive Conservatives’ 2006 election victory on Jan. 23 approaches.

Dr. Franks, one of Canada’s leading scholars on Parliamentary issues, feels that Stephen Harper has had both good and bad moments during his stint as prime minister.

“The past five years have seen a distinct shift to the right and a deterioration of Parliament. The Conservative government has treated Parliament as gladiatorial combat where you try to slay all your opponents,” says Dr. Frank.
