Failing Canada and Canadians on basically every single issue, I give you the once proud Liberal Party of Canada.
Let's have a look at how Team Ignatieff has decided to wind down their last days of the session shall we.
Last week Iggybots had a chance to take down the Conservatives on the most ridiculous Budget Bill in the history of Canada that included 900 pages of everything from soup to nuts and at least 5 non-budgetary bills. They chose to absent 30 MPs instead.
Yesterday, in the Senate, Conservative Senator Murray tried to rally the Liberal troops to split that same budget bill. He fell short. The result of all this bullshit? The Environment is lost in Canada for at least another generation or 2. Way to go team Liberal, party of Kyoto! Bravo!
Big issue #2 was that we forced Liberal MP and speaker of the House, Peter Milliken to make an historic ruling on Parliamentary Priviledge only to cave yesterday and take it in the ear again from Stephen Harper's dictatorship. Shame on you Mr. Ignatieff for failing the Parliament of Canada. Shame.
Issue #3. After 1.5 years of waiting for some kind of substantial policy from the leader's office - and 2 commissions, a convention and a HUGE Montreal thinker's conference later - we get a foreign policy position from the leader. The result???? WE SHOULD STAY IN AFGHANISTAN! WTF are you thinking?
I'm just wondering what happened to my grandaddy's Liberals and why any of us are sticking around for the bloodbath.
Michael Ignatieff was right. We didn't get it done....AGAIN
