The NDP, meanwhile, is taking issue with Mr. Duceppe’s tour – and his meeting with Mr. Flanagan. “While the Bloc Quebecois markets itself as a progressive
party, Mr. Duceppe will be meeting today with members of the C.D. Howe Institute, a prominent right-wing think-tank and next week with that paragon of progressive Canada: former Harper adviser Tom Flanagan,” the NDP said in a statement.
So their argument is basically that you should never listen to ideas from people you disagree with. That those on the right will never have anything of value to say. Way to be open minded Jack.
Next up, Michael Ignatieff:
"Ask yourselves a question," Ignatieff said in a speech to the Mirabel Chamber of Commerce and Industry: "Does a Bloc MP have an interest in settling issues?
"I think their first interest is to see to it that problems do not get solved so they can say the country does not work. This is a policy that is against citizens rather than for citizens. It is petty, partisan politics being done on your backs."
Ahh, the paradoxical Bloc Quebecois. Democratically elected when you need their support for a budget to pass or a coalition government. But treasonous troublemakers when you disagree with them.
Either these guys are legitimate assholes we hate, or they're illegitimate assholes we hate. Can we just pick one and stick with it?
