Not part of move to `dump Harper'

by David Orchard

Bob Hepburn writes that there's a growing "dump (Stephen) Harper movement" in the Conservative party. David Orchard, he says, is "a key player."

A "dump anybody" movement is one of insiders and, in the case of Harper, Conservative party members. I am neither, and was even denied the opportunity to attend the party's first convention as an observer. A movement to "dump Harper" may well exist in the Conservative party. I know nothing of it. Neither am I part of any other group trying to unseat Harper.

Hepburn writes that this group is "working the phones." That, too, is news to me. The phone calls I am making have to do with prices of wheat, oats and fuel, arrangements for leaf-cutter bees to pollinate alfalfa crops and getting the seed into the ground on my farms.

One would hope the Toronto Star would subscribe to higher standards of journalistic accuracy.
