Liberal leader Stephane Dion is taking another step towards the cliff of irrelevancy today, with a new attack on the Harper government.
Now that Dion has lost the environment as his go-to issue, been labelled soft on terror, and declared devoid of leadership, what issue is he going to try to beat the Conservative's over the head with?
He is going to tell Canadians that Stephen Harper is scary.
Last I checked it was the Stephane Dion Liberals that declared their intention to cut the oil sands off at the knees, silencing Canada's economic engine. It is the Liberals who declare they want to meet Kyoto by any means possible, even if that costs thousand and thousands of Canadians their jobs, at a cost to the economy of $100+ Billion dollars. It is the Liberals that did away with preventative arrests, leaving a situation where terrorists may only be apprehended AFTER they launch a terrorist attack. And it is the Liberals who want to cut and run from a vulnerable Afghanistan, embarrassing Canada, and leaving an important part of the world at the mercy of the Taliban extremists.
Further research leads me to the Conservative’s tax credit for children's sports. The cutting of immigrant landing fees. $100/month in the pockets of every Canadian parent. A renewed sense of pride in Canada's armed forces. More weight and respect behind Canada's name in the international community. An apology for the Chinese head tax after years of Liberal excuses. Compensation for Hepatitis C sufferers after years of Liberal excuses. Finally signing a residential schools agreement after years of Liberal excuses.
So who should Canadians fear?
I'm far more afraid of Stephane than I am of Stephen.
