I get both the Toronto Star and the Onion in my RSS feed. When I first came across this article, titled “Tories rebrand ‘Government of Canada’ as ‘Harper Government’” I chuckled and moved on, thinking that it was another zinger from the Onion. Then I remembered that the Onion is an American institution and realized that this is honest news from the Star!
This outrageous partisan branding is completely unacceptable. It’s the Government of Canada, not Stephen Harper’s personal playground. Let’s get this crook outta there already.
