Harper should leave a legacy

Editor: News articles and opinions will keep adding up over the weeks on the not-so-strong conservative leadership of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

My only hope, in this saga for his succession, is that Harper will make a great move towards people in need before leaving. The death of Nelson Mandela reminded us of Brian Mulroney’s huge contribution to end apartheid in South Africa. Wouldn’t it be great to also remember Stephen Harper for something huge, like maybe being the world leader in the fight against poverty, here in Canada and around the world?

It would be quite a turnover, I must agree, but it was also quite a turnover for Mulroney to stand against apartheid over 20 years ago.
