Anti-Harper website attracts two million hits

Social media are wreaking havoc on the Conservative party’s image with an anti-Harper website that’s gone viral, reaching more than a million Canadians since its Wednesday release.

Mixing humour with profanity, the website -shitharperdid.ca -crashed under the weight of traffic within hours of its launch Wednesday morning. By Thursday, it passed two million hits, with the average viewer spending four minutes on the site reading through news reports chronicling Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s record.

Among people who noticed the site was author Margaret Atwood, who tweeted the link to her 160,000-plus followers: “Didn’t know about some of these things! Yikes!” she wrote.
