Now if you were the leader of a major political party in Canada, and you had already been branded weak on leadership, soft on terror, and had the one issue you "owned" (the environment) stolen from you...what would you say in a major Ottawa speech? A major speech that the Press Gallery was calling your one chance to recapture the agenda from Stephen Harper and the Conservatives.
Do or die time, what would you say?
Would you tell Canadians that you plan to raise their taxes?
Well that is what Stephane Dion has done. No, I'm not making this up. I am allowed to make stuff up, but here I am not. Who brought up this gem at the strategy table, Denis Coderre? Yikes.
