Their admirers may be far apart. But Stephen Harper and Pierre Trudeau now have something in common.
Martin’s just-published book likely will publicly brand Harper once and for all as a secretive control freak four years after taking office.
Trudeau was swept into office by the then-emerging and idealistic baby boomer vote, fed up by years of minority government. He was also kept in power by the baby boomers.
Harper crept into office, helped by an angry, aging and fading baby boomer vote.
But at this point, that is just another maybe scenario.
Harper may never win a majority. But he will be tough to dislodge just the same.
