McGuinty: What's $3 Million a Year in Foreign Scholarships?

Afterall, it's investing in our future. Discuss!

It's Official...Again....The Liberal Party will Not be Winning An Election Any Decade Soon

And the Liberal Leader clearly has no clue what a "wedge issue" is.

What are the other 74 Liberal MPs thinking in caucus meetings??? At a time when the Prime Minister of Canada just proved he clearly LIED to Canadians when he said the mission in Afghanistan would end in 2011, we have The Liberal leader backing him up on his lie. I can tell you if I was in the Liberal Caucus I'd be speaking publicly and loudly that this is a FARCE. Canadians - rightly or wrongly - want our troops home. End of story.

The Liberal Party of Canada is failing Canadians and have been doing it for 23 months straight! Disgusting!

It's time to Leave Afghanistan

Really. Our loyal sons and daughters have spilled enough blood in the "unwinnable war". It's time the members of the Liberal Caucus grew a pair and tell their leader to get our troops home.

Extension of Canada's Afghanistan mission

Since his election to Parliament, Ignatieff has been one of the few opposition members supporting the minority Conservative government's commitment to Canadian military activity in Afghanistan. Prime Minister Stephen Harper called a vote in the House of Commons for May 17, 2006, on extending the Canadian Forces current deployment in Afghanistan until February 2009. During the debate, Ignatieff expressed his "unequivocal support for the troops in Afghanistan, for the mission, and also for the renewal of the mission." He argued that the Afghanistan mission tests the success of Canada's shift from "the peacekeeping paradigm to the peace-enforcement paradigm," the latter combining "military, reconstruction and humanitarian efforts together."

The opposition Liberal caucus of 102 MPs was divided, with 24 MPs supporting the extension, 66 voting against, and 12 abstentions. Among Liberal leadership candidates, Ignatieff and Scott Brison voted for the extension. Ignatieff led the largest Liberal contingent of votes in favour, with at least five of his caucus supporters voting along with him to extend the mission. The vote was 149–145 for extending the military deployment. Following the vote, Harper shook Ignatieff's hand

Who's You're (Sugar) Daddy?

The Canadian taxpayer. That's who.

Two questions arise from this article in my mind:

1. Why did The Star choose to focus on Layton/Chow?

2. Am I the only one that thinks this leaves the door open for a new Canadian Tea Party to rise from the ashes?
