Canadians deserve real leadership during economic crisis, Goodale

OTTAWA - The Conservative government's continued panic-mode governing further undermines Canadians' confidence in its ability to manage our economy in a time of crisis, said Liberal House Leader Ralph Goodale.

"Canadians are facing a serious economic crisis, and the Conservatives are governing on the fly," said Mr. Goodale. "Yesterday they reversed their position on political financing, and today they're announcing they'll move up the budget date.

"How can Canadians trust this government to get our economy back on track when it's all over the map?"

Mr. Goodale said that the Conservatives' behaviour clearly shows that this government is completely out of touch with Canadians - focusing more on advancing their conservative agenda with ideological cuts and attacks on the rights of Canadians than coming up with a plan to help our economy.

"Now, more than ever, Canadians need Parliament to put their interests first and provide them with a plan to help protect their jobs, their homes and prevent their hard-earned savings from disappearing," said Mr. Goodale.

"While Stephen Harper wants to keep Canadians and the world in the dark, the Liberals are putting partisan politics aside and working with the other parties to create a plan to put our economy and Canadians first," he said.

The fact that the Cons are all over the map shows you what effect even the talk of a coalition has had on them.

They have been forced to actually modify their stance---just the way they should as a minority party--this is how a minority should work--at the will of the majority.

This is all due to the Liberals refusal to lie down as they have in the past.

About time too.

I firmly believe that if the parties involved in coalition talks can put their egos & policy partisanship aside , this could be great for the country.

It will probably be a true majority where the will of the people will come first.

As I said before , about time too.

Is this the new colour for the coalition government? Look at their ties - both purple.

Where was the CPC operative when he recorded the NDP meeting?

Ralph the Premier Janitor had similar experiences in a darkened crawl space at Calgary city hall where he'd catch in-camera meetings. I kid you not.

But time change everything. Maybe the recording was unlawful. Maybe this is a Canadian Closetgate.

The Shadow of time knows...
