Liberal Principles


Just after winning the Liberal leadership in December he told The Globe and Mail that the accord clouds the principles of equalization, which is designed to assist provinces with smaller tax bases.
Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion moved Monday to capitalize on anger against Stephen Harper's Conservatives in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, pledging that he would respect the Atlantic Accord if he became prime minister.

LAST WORD: Steffi has to do solo "stoop & scoop"...

After Danny Millions skips out on "dog and pony" photo op.
-- ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- Federal Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion's plan to deliver a joint blast at the Harper government with feisty Conservative Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams fizzled yesterday.

Williams, who has been waging political war on Prime Minister Stephen Harper who he accuses of breaking a 2006 election promise on offshore oil revenues, declared his meeting with Dion private, forcing the Liberals to cancel a scheduled photo opportunity with the two leaders.

Our "dear friend" Jason Cherniak, of course, would probably think this yet more proof of the inevitability of Stéphane Dion leading the Liberal Party to victory. No doubt some of those with their hands out, expecting their revenues and equalization, too, would agree.

I'm with you. The only principle at work here is "who gives a damn, as long as someone votes for me". I guess with all the flipping and flopping we could rename Stéphane "Runaround Sue", eh?
