Inspiring words from the opposition. I hope that Liberal partisans who moaned and bitched about the NDP propping up the government are suitably embarrassed by this stunning failure to represent the people of Canada.
I don’t have any particular quibble with Dion but if this is how he shows decisiveness and leadership…well let’s just say things don’t bode well.
Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion said on Wednesday that his party won’t defeat the government on the federal budget, but also won’t vote in favour of it.
“We’ll find a way to not defeat the government and to express our disagreement with this budget,” Dion said while leaving a caucus meeting in Ottawa on Wednesday.
He said the Liberals will still have an amendment, but the party has decided not to take the government down in the vote of confidence over the budget.
Perhaps Dion emersing himself in CanCon has watched Jim Carey one too many times;
Fletcher Dion: You scratched my car!
Motorpool Guy Harper: Where?
Fletcher Dion: [indicating with his hands] Right there!
Motorpool Guy Harper: OH… That was already there.
Fletcher Dion: You – -LIAR! You know what I am going to do about this?
Motorpool Guy Harper: what?
Fletcher Dion: Nothing! Because if I take it to small claims court, it will just drain 8 hours out of my life and you probably won’t show up and even if I got the judgment you’d just stiff me anyway; so what I am going to do is piss and moan like an impotent jerk, and then bend over and take it up the tailpipe!
