I have never seen a person squander opportunity after opportunity after opportunity like Michael Ignatieff.
Now he has even out done himself by having triggered an election when he was some 10 points down from the ruling Conservatives, and transforming a Conservative minority government into a Conservative. To quote Barack Obama's put down of Donald Trump:
"Well done sir. Well done".
As for squandering opportunity after opportunity after opportunity, Michael Ignatieff and the Liberal Party did NOTHING to expose the lies, deceit and incompetence of the Harper on the income trust tax. A tax that was predicated on the total false and fabricated argument that income trusts cause tax leakage. A tax that caused REAL tax leakage of over $1 billion a year from the foreign takeover of income trusts, where no tax leakage existed in the first place. A tax that caused Canadians to lose $35 billion of their life savings. A tax that destroyed an essential retirement income investment vehicle that is essential to the 75% of Canadians that are without employee pensions. A tax that unfairly imposed on the 75% of Canadians without pensions and not the 25% of with pensions.
What did the Liberals do for Canadians on this issue? Nothing, Is it any wonder that Cannadian voters are holding the Liberals in contempt?
