The Harper Decade hosted Lorne Sossin, Peter Russell, Pamela Palmater and Faisal Bhabha in Toronto on October 7, 2015 for a discussion on Stephen Harper's relationship with Parliament, the Judiciary, Aboriginals and Muslims in Canada.
Peter H. Russell outlines Stephen Harper's use of omnibus legislation and his neglect of the conventions of parliamentary democracy.
Pamela Palmater argues that the Harper government stands out as one of the most racist and aggressive governments that First Nations have had to work with in many generations.
Lorne Sossin examines the tumultuous, but ultimately resilient, relationship between the Canadian courts and the Prime Minister's Office.
Faisal Bhabha argues that the Harper government has not only failed to protect the rights and safety of Muslim Canadians, but has actively campaigned on discriminatory policy targeting this community in an effort to win votes.
