Stephen Harper a ‘control freak,’ Patrick Brazeau says in online column

OTTAWA—Sen. Patrick Brazeau, who was expelled from the Conservative caucus, is urging Canadians to vote Stephen Harper out of office in an online essay that likens his leadership style to a dictatorship.

“Harper is a control freak,” Brazeau wrote in a 1,608-word column published by the online political news site Loonie Politics. The essay begins with his thoughts on how Harper has been responding to questions about the criminal trial of Sen. Mike Duffy.

“When I was in caucus, very few challenged him. Those who did were shut down, those who had differing opinions were silenced,” wrote Brazeau, claiming he once “shamed” Harper in front of his caucus for not calling an inquiry into the issue of missing and murdered aboriginal women.

“When you contradict, shame or make the PM look bad regardless of its significance, watch out because some of his soldiers are coming after you,” Brazeau wrote.
