It wouldn’t look good if John McCallum out fundraised Jim Flaherty by way of John McCallum’s upcoming debate with Seymour Schulich at $1,000 a ticket on a major policy platform of the Liberals.....the Green Shift.
How many of you out there would pay $1,000 a ticket to see Flaherty debate Brent Fullard on his magna opus Tax Fairness Plan? This would be a chance for Flaherty to make good on his MP colleague’s empty promise of April 2008 in the Hill Times that:
“I don’t think Jim’s losing any sleep over it. As a matter of fact, I’m sure of it. I’m sure he’d love to go a couple of rounds with these [CAITI] guys in a debate situation.”
Come on Jim. You’re the Finance Minister of the Entire Country as you like to call yourself. How about a debate? You are sure to blow me away. Who knows, perhaps you can fulfill Terry Corcoran’s stated desire to vaporize me.....in person no less.
John McCallum’s going to make you look awfully lame in the fundraising department. You might lose your standing in the party. Attack ads need funding.
How’s about it big guy? How about about if it was underwritten for a minimum $50,000? Is that worth an hour of your precious time?
