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.
