Harper stands by his man


Stephen Harper, Canada's smug, geeky Prime Minister, has not demonstrated a great capacity for loyalty recently. Disagree with his policies or make him look bad and he doesn't hesitate to throw you over the side. But it is impressive to see him stand behind William Elliott, the first civilian head of the RCMP who has come under fire for his brusque and ride management style. The RCMP has serious cultural and leadership problems, it would be a shame to see the changes that need to be made derailed for insubstantial reasons. Harper may take some political shots for this but he deserves a rare kudos for standing by his man. - Beta
