The term “peter out” is defined as “to dwindle away to nothing.”
I believe that Stephen Harper has been trying dwindle our province away to nothing ever since Danny Williams took off the gloves in the ABC campaign.
After the election he gave us Peter MacKay who callously showed indifference to us while flying all over the place in rescue equipment — yet when we have one of our own children lost on the ice, hoping for and expecting rescue, it does not happen.
But this MacKay acts like he does not care.
Not a word about how he feels something happened that should have been prevented; he was like I don’t know want happened to that child and frankly I don’t care.
Then we get Peter Penashue. He allegedly buys an election win, spends a ton of money himself travelling and, when asked about it for a couple of weeks, he finally stands up, speaks obvious gibberish and shows the whole province he doesn’t have a clue and he does not care who knows it.
A total reflection on the Harper government.
No one in that government is accountable to the people who put them there.
We cannot let that be the norm.
The prime minister wants to “peter out” this province; that has been obvious since day one.
Speaking of two Peters, the nursery rhyme “Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater” is believed to have been adapted from the Scottish rhyme below:
Eeper Weeper, chimbly sweeper,
Had a wife but couldn't keep her.
Had another, didn't love her,
Up the chimbly he did shove her
I think the first two words in this rhyme should have been Stephen Harper.
