April 9, 2008 – Prime Minister Harper rejected speculation by Liberals that he has a hidden agenda to re-open the constitutional debate in order to achieve the government’s democratic reform agenda.
He’s confused. He’s ambiguous. He has a hidden agenda. He must show it to Canadians. He must stop being secretive. He must be transparent about the fabric of this federation.
– Stéphane Dion
Harper confirmed his long-held position that democratic reform can be achieved through legislation and changes to parliamentary convention.
