On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal published an opinion piece penned by Canada’s former Conservative Prime Minister. In the article, Stephen Harper, who now helps run a global network of right-wing political parties, argued for a post-pandemic agenda of “shrinking” government.

While Conservative politicians have flocked behind Harper’s message, Canadians are ridiculing the former Prime Minister’s opinions.

Some have contrasted Harper’s last WSJ opinion piece, wherein he advocated for Canada’s involvement in the Iraq War.

Others have pointed out the irony of Harper advocating for the very austerity politics which have exacerbated the COVID-19 crisis.

More than anything, however, Canadians appear to be fed up with the removed Prime Minister’s continued influence in Canadian politics.
