Quote, unquote: Stephen Harper's hidden theo-con agenda

They see him as an image-savvy evangelical who has been careful to keep his signals to them under the media radar, but they have no doubt his convictions run deep—so deep that only after he wins a majority will he dare translate the true colours of his faith into policies that could remake the fabric of the nation. If they’re right, it remains unclear whether those convictions would turn government into a kinder, gentler guarantor of social justice for all or transform the country into a stern, narrow-minded theocracy.
-- Marci McDonald in her article in the October 2006 issue of The Walrus, "Stephen Harper and the Theo-Cons". Republished recently on the Walrus website, apparently because of its relevance to current circumstances.

Hi DB,

Thanks for the mention. That article is actually from the October 2006 issue (as we mentioned in the dek on the homepage). We thought we'd put the article on the front page as it's been getting a lot of comments lately.

Thanks. A good call on your part. I have amended my post to make it clear that is is not this October, but rather two years ago.
