In Support Of Unpopular Positions

1. Ontario's Auditor General, Chris Bentley, has an op-ed in the Hill Times defending the long gun registry.

2. Another study is out, once again showing that, contrary to popular opinion, the HST will not be the trigger event that leads to the end of the world in 2012.

    If the Toronto Star report is accurate:

    Not only is it "virtually revenue neutral", it “is expected to create close to 600,000 new jobs over 10 years”.

    If there ever was something that created something from nothing, it is the HST!

  • I am surprised that there are any Liberals left in Canada that support the gun registry. From a political point of view, it continues to be a massive albatross around the party's neck. I suppose this means that there are a lot of ideologues among Liberals .... doesn't that make it harder to win elections, folks?

  • I'm surprised at the degree of support for axing the gun registry. The costs of maintaining it are low, and law enforcement officials say that it works for them.

  • Given its history and its widely perceived uselessness (despite the lunatic barkings of the still Liberal dominated CACP) Liberals pay a heavy political price to maintain this. As to costs, what everyone recalls is that they were sold a 'cost effective' program whose final price tag is likely well over $2 billion dollars. I still remember Alan Rock promising to axe the entire program (not just the registry) if it were to cost as much as $60 million dollars in total! I suppose that promise was forgotten along with Chretien's promise to 'axe the tax' (GST) if elected.

    That's ok, Liberals, keep on defending the registry, its one more nail in the coffin of your political future.

  • Oh and thank you for admitting that there is strong support for axing the registry ... some Liberals are still in denial about even this fact.
