As the election draws closer, Harper Derangement Syndrome seems to be intensifying. On the way into the CPC campaign rally in Surrey last night, a guy walked back and forth on the sidewalk across the street shouting vile insults at rally-goers lining up outside the venue. It was funny, weird and at the same time disturbing because he seemed genuinely nuts.
And inside the venue, during Stephen Harper's speech, three more "protesters" managed to infiltrate the rally. One unfurled a banner calling for "climate justice" (don't we all know Harper is a climate criminal?), another rushed towards Harper (aiming to do what wasn't clear) getting within a foot of him before being tackled by security guards, and shortly after a third started shouting at Harper from the audience before being grabbed and hustled out.
All in all, it was described by reporters as "the worst security breach of the campaign". The security people really started looking worried after the fracas (for their jobs, maybe?)
