Actually, the opposition has made is QUITE clear that they don’t intend to form a coalition. And the funny thing is, Harper, in 2004, contemplated a coalition government with the Bloc and NDP There is a signed letter by Harper, Duceppe, and Layton asking the Governor General to consider a coalition government. (Hypocrite, much?)
@JosephH: “The NDPs and Liberals are dead-set on spending spending spending” –You are joking right? The Conservatives want us to buy F-35s that are going to cost us 30 BILLION dollars. Not to mention the G20/G8 summits that cost us 1 BILLION dollars, for a fake lake. In a time of economic uncertainty! They haven’t even told us what those mega-prisons would cost us. Do we need them? No. Canada’s crime rate is going down.
Do you know why we have made it through the recession? We survived this Market crash because of limitations Martin put on the banks while he was finance minister. The surplus that the Liberal Party left us clearly helped. Is Harper is going to lead us to financial security with jets and super jails?
Further, Harper is a career politician who has done nothing outside politics while Ignatieff has been a renowned journalist in Afghanistan, author, lawyer, Harvard director, and Oxford professor.
This article is great, and it does a GREAT job outlining what has happened in the Harper regime. At a time when Arabs risk life and limb for political freedoms, Canadians seem largely apathetic about the erosion of their democracy.
It’s crazy how little attention all of these scandals are getting while the opposition parties are screaming and no one seems to be listening.
Thoughts on the last article?
