Harder Tries to Pull a Fast One

Meet City of Ottawa Councillor Jan Harder.

Councillor Harder represents Barrhaven on Ottawa City Council and calls herself a Tax Fighter on her website. In big, bold, red letters no less.

Yet, in the November 30th edition of the Barrhaven Independent, (a local West End Ottawa weekly newspaper) she declares, "I did not campaign as a taxfighter in the last election."

Ummm, actually you did Councillor. Check your own website. If calling yourself a tax fighter on your official campaign website isn't campaigning as a tax fighter what is?

Maybe the councillor just forgot that was on her re-election website or maybe she just doesn't read it. Either way, Councillor Harder is now advocating higher taxes for Ottawa residents and is denying she ever campaigned as a Tax Fighter.

Strange, don't you think?

Warning to Barrhaven residents: Beware of politicians who talk out of both sides of their mouths.

Advice for Councillor Harder: Read your own damn website!
