The Harper government to spend 28-million dollars to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.
While people are dying while waiting for medical tests and treatments, cement blocks are falling off buildings in Montreal, streets and bridges are falling apart, libraries are being closed and people are lining up for food hand-outs, Canada's Stephen Harper is about to treat his peers to another big show. For the G-8-G-20, Harper built wooden gazebos and reflecting pools. Now he has a bigger show in mind.
Is there an appropriate word to describe such irrational behaviour on the part of one who has authority over a great nation ?
