The leader in the bubble?
Following up on my colleague James Cudmore's several blog entries about Conservative staffers and the RCMP removing dissenters, keeping protesters at bay and blocking reporters from talking to local candidates — I thought I'd report that these incidents are providing fodder for Stéphane Dion.
Dion highlighted how, unlike his opponent, he has been holding open town hall meetings across the country, taking all questions from anyone without a safety net. He said Harper just can't do it, "he can't stand talking to people who don't share his right-wing opinions."
Dion accused Harper of using the RCMP to hide from the media, that he hides from Canadians and lives in a bubble.
