...of Parliament's deepest, darkest basement... Stephane Dion throws back his head and howls...
The NEW Liberal Party... they're flexible too...
Only three weeks ago, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff insisted he would never support the fund without some advance idea of how it would be spent. He was adamant despite Prime Minister Stephen Harper's warning that the fund constituted a confidence matter and that opposition parties would “find themselves in an election” if they blocked it.Wow... those are pretty tough words. I guess the Liberal Party means business after all.
“I am not writing a blank cheque on $3-billion. No Canadian would respect me if I did,” Mr. Ignatieff said at the time.
Nah... turns out Iggy was just blowin' smoke... and it's "business as usual."
Yet Liberals supported the fund Tuesday even though the government had not provided any of the details they'd demanded.Is that really the kind of government Canadians want to go back to?
Despite Tuesday's climb down, Mr. Ignatieff continued to insist his position hasn't changed. And he even issued a thinly veiled threat to force an election over the matter.
