All bets are off on fixed voting date as PM backtracks on promise to wait until October, 2009; decision expected within weeks
I must have missed this quote:
“Mr. Dion is threatening to bring the government down, again, but we’ve heard that same song for nearly two years,” said Mr. Harper, accusing Mr. Dion of doing “everything in his power to slow the business of Parliament.
Ah, it’s refreshing to see a Tory behave like one, getting the Liberals to cow to their requests then accusing them of acting as a disrupting force for what they say in the media. It’s Castigation for Words and ignorance for their deeds. It’s too bad that Celine Dion is all Hat and No Cattle, since this kind of crap will go (Legistlativly) unanswered. At least we get to see Harper baring his teeth and reminding the people who do hear it (I missed it too) that he’s a sneaky bastard in the mold of the Neocons to the south. His near-invisibility in public lets him get away with it.
Now, will Celine Dion get his hand dirty and bring down the Government? Probably not. The Liberals really need to stop playing “politics” and start playing POLITICS and get out there and remind people that excepting ONE SCANDAL the Liberals led Canada to peace and prosperity and the Tories continues to Spend and Spend while cutting services and selling out to the Americans. There is NOTHING wrong with pointing out how often the Tories have cowed to the Bush Admin.
They won’t though, because they are the “New Liberals” and just an organ of the Tory machine.
