Apparently, Stephane Dion has a billion dollars in his back pocket...
Liberal Leader Stephane Dion is set to shift his "Green Shift" plan just days before a federal election is expected to be called.Wait a second! What's that? He doesn't have any money? NONE AT ALL!?!
CTV News has learned Dion will announce that part of the $1 billion contingency fund in his plan, designed for tax relief to address the unavoidable costs associated with the carbon tax, will be set aside for truckers, farmers and fishermen.
Whaddaya mean... WE'VE gotta pay for it?!
That's Steffi's idea of revenue neutral?
No wonder this dope is polling behind Taliban Jack.
UPDATE: A billion here... a billion there...
"There's $1-billion wiggle room," said Montreal MP Marlene Jennings. "We've never said that the plan, in terms of the spending side, is complete, because it's not."A billion dollars... aka Liberal chump-change.
No wonder he's coming up short in the polls...
