  • Hi CG

    I am a member of the Liberal Party.
    I am a member of the Liberal Party of Ontario
    I have pounded hunreds of election signs and gone door to door and dropped leaflets...so there is my bias
    Saturday I talked to an esteemed colleague who is a life long Conservative.
    Her view... Harper is finished...
    Why
    1) lost the 2008 election when no one could have had more favourable conditions...good economy, weak opposition ete etc,
    2) Harper trashed duly elected candidates in Toronto and Guelph (I think) for no apparent reason and totally over ruled the wishes of the local ridings,
    3) Harper inserted the political funding "stink bomb" in the FU for totally vindictive reasons.
    I know how I would like to see this unfold but apparently some or at least one thoughtful CPC member agrees.

  • Attempts to reach Pierre Trudeau for his comments on his former party reaching a deal with the Quebec separatists have been unsuccessful at this time.

  • Is that an anonymous Liberal insider CG?

  • Even as a dejected, disgusted Conservative supporter, I have to admit CG that you are one of the few Liberal blogs that can gloat about the current situation without being an asshole about it.

    I wish there were more like you in the Liberal party. You are a voice of sober second thought that is sorely lacking right now.

  • From the preamble of the Accord:



    "a belief in the role of Government to act as a partner with Canadians and Quebecers."



    You have already partitioned the country! This is the first government ever to have agreed to such a thing. Woe, Canada!



    This is treasonous behaviour. Shame, shame, shame. Liberals will regret the day that they undermined our country for the sake of power.

  • Ok. I don't get the graphic.
    Second, referring to the fiscal update
    as the FU is spot-on. That's what
    Harper tried to do.

  • This just earned the Conservatives another $200.00. Now I'm maxed out for the year.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:20 AM  

  • I think it is funny that Jimtan saw the need to write that in each of the comment boards because it was so witty, insightful, and not obviously apparent. He had me fully convinced of the evil of Harper in fact...

    Until some anonymous person claimed to have donated money as a result of a moderately funny joke at Harper's expense. Clearly the great majority of anonymous Canadians are rallying around the Prime Minister - I'd better join the herd.

  • bahahahaha this is hilarious! thank you!

  • "... Harper trashed duly elected candidates in Toronto and Guelph (I think) ...", "Harper inserted the political funding "stink bomb" in the FU..."

    These things are all par for the course in daily Canadian politics. You see something like it bandied about in pretty much every Question Period.

    But you don't swap out the chief executive of your nation for this sort of prosaic stuff. If we have a mature, well-functioning democracy there should be a fundamental economic policy difference. That seems to be the case here, but it is far from clear that Harper is more offside the electorate than a Liberal-NDP coalition with respect to launching a spending spree (aka "stimulus"). A Tory-Liberal coalition would better represent public opinion than a Liberal-NDP coalition.

    The NDP, well, they are "true believers" and not as interested in electability, but the Liberals, what are they thinking, saying they want to assume responsibility at this time? "I'd like to own the recession, please!" And please direct anti-NDP and anti-Bloc fire our way since we are formally colluding with them?

  • Anon - good. Now I can make fun of Harper as much as I want for the rest of the year without worrying about it leading to more donations from you ;-)

    (because somebody has to say it)

    What? You couldn't find him? Why didn't you look to where the soil was apparently tilling itself.
