...if they'll do it with you... they'll do it to you...
-- LONDON, Ont. -- In a move that has reignited talk of a coalition, an NDP candidate in this southern Ontario city has surprised everyone, including his own party, by withdrawing from the election race and throwing his support behind his Liberal rival.**********
Ryan Dolby, who was running in Elgin-Middlesex-London, made the announcement in a press release e-mailed to the media, party officials and others Wednesday morning.
“I am worried if Stephen Harper gets a majority. I made a strategic decision,” Dolby said.
A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE: Dion's payoff to Duceppe revealed...
"I was just watching Mike Duffy Live on CTV, and learned that Pauline Marois, the leader of the provincial Parti Quebecois -- the sister party to the separatist Bloc Quebecois -- announced that part of Gilles Duceppe's price for supporting the coalition is an immediate $1 billion transfer to Quebec."Vote Liberal... I dare you.
"On the same show, we learned of other coming pay-offs: separatist appointments to the Senate. There are 18 vacancies in the Senate, including four in Quebec. Not only are the Bloc in for patronage pay-offs, but Elizabeth May, the Green Party leader, was on Parliament Hill today, and she wouldn't deny that she, too, was offered a Senate seat."
"It's a fire sale in Ottawa! Senate seats, billions of dollars, whatever you want -- just make Stephane Dion the prime minister!"
