NWT chapter presents “Stephen Harper: The Musical” on February 14

The Council of Canadians Northwest Territories chapter will be presenting “Stephen Harper: The Musical, How to Survive and Thrive in the Dying Days of the Empire of Oil” in Yellowknife on February 14.

The chapter notes, “The one-man show is the production of James Gordon, a singer-songwriter with 40 albums to his credit over a thirty-year international career. James’ puppeteering and humourous lyrics mock everything from the Senate scandal and the Tories’ non-debated omnibus bills, to public service cuts, unemployment, climate change, our overpriced fighter jets, Canada’s economic decline, and Harper’s sketchy deals with China. It’s a theatrical indictment of the government that progressive Canadians love to hate, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Coming up to an election, it’s a memorable.”

Gordon says, “If we’re looking at Harper’s record, it’s one thing to say that I agree or disagree but it’s another to shine a light on it because we have very short political memories in this country. It’s easy to forget what happened a year ago; things are happening pretty fast.”

Our Prince Albert chapter is also sponsoring a presentation of this play on February 10, while the Red Deer and Area chapter is organizing a performance on February 12. Information on those shows can be found here (for Prince Albert) and here (for Red Deer).
