Former Stephen Harper Chief of Staff Nigel Wright was on the stand for something like 71st day in a row at the trial of Senator Mike Duffy today. Every day on the campaign trail, Harper is getting pelted with questions from the media concerning what he knew and when, which, admittedly, can get tiresome for anyone interested in knowing more about the Conservative platform or any subject not involving the words “senate” and “expenses.” So in what’s sure to be one of the most re-played moments of the election, one person decided to stick up for his man Harper in the wake of mounting and deafening media demands for answers with hilarious results.
Tension began when one Tory supporter told members of the media that after five decades of support, he can no longer give his loyalty to the prime minister after more non-answers about Duffy and a lack of interest on the part of the Conservatives about seniors. Then, this man accosted him. And when that went no where, he decided to tell the media what’s on his mind. We’ll pick it up there courtesy of the CBC.
