Our Story

The “Our Story” piece being the most obviously derivative of piece lifted from the Obama team’s work.

Stephen Harper’s Solution

A look back
(8 years of the Harper Conservatives)

A short satirical opposition piece about the first 8 years the Harper Conservative Government. Wish people didn’t get cold feet on this piece, it was buried in a non-official YouTube Channel and not used despite being quality appropriation of the Facebook user generated video piece and Oppositional satire. “A look back (8 years of Harper […]
