Look what they wanted to give us but the bad opposition are just in it for themselves, hoping we'll forget:
That they refuse to divulge cost of crime bills, while expecting our elected officials to endorse them.
The mounting scandals from the "in and out" financing scheme and forged receipts, to Bev Oda and Bruce Carson.
The $billion they spent this week to buy our votes. It's enough already.
What puzzles me though is why Jack Layton is still pondering supporting the government. Has he learned nothing? Bob Hepburn says that Layton needs to listen to his elders.
They would tell him they consider the Conservative government under Stephen Harper to be the most right-wing, mean-spirited and dictatorial regime in Ottawa in living memory.This government's defeat may be the end of Stephen Harper's political career, but if Jack Layton keeps this government alive, it will surely be the end of his.
They would also tell Layton the Tories now running Ottawa have damaged Canada’s reputation abroad and at home and are nothing more than “oafs” who are more aligned with the Tea Party in the U.S. than they are with mainstream Canadians.
And they would likely tell the NDP leader that it’s time to stop siding with Harper, as he did in 2009, and vote against the budget with the Liberals and Bloc Québécois, trigger an election as early as May, and campaign hard to defeat the Conservatives.
