Stephen Harper recently launched the longest election campaign in 143 years, meaning millions of Canadians will have the delight of witnessing campaign signs on every lawn and highway for the next two months. Although many have critiqued the Prime Minister’s decision to launch such a lengthy campaign period, there are some positive aspects: it supplies Canadians with sufficient time to become informed and educated on the parties running, and supplies political commentators and journalists with more time to expose the dirt. And, to be completely fair and honest, Mr. Harper’s political career is buried in dirt.

This article will specifically focus on Stephen Harper and reveal some important facts - as well as trivial and peculiar ones - that many Canadians may not know about his administration. Furthermore, I must clarify that this article is not intended to demonize Harper, rather it’s to expose sourced facts that Canadians deserve to know about their government.

In 1989, Stephen Harper was a member of the radical-right-wing Northern Foundation. Mr. Harrison documents that the Northern Foundation had close ties with the Reform party and had numerous Neo-Nazi skinheads as organizers. Overall, the Northern Foundation of which Mr. Harper was a member, is a male-dominated and self-anointed “white brotherhood.”
