This is Canadian political dissent like never seen before. For two reasons.
First and especially, the dissent is taking place on Canada’s Independence Day. Second, it’s directed against a prime minister supposedly elected with a majority just over a year ago, on May 2.
Once again, Canadians are using the social media, especially Twitter, to voice their democratic grudge against Stephen Harper, the “Harper Government” and government dictatorship-style policies. The most popular hashtag at the moment is #DenounceHarper, followed closely by #HappyCanadaDay.
