Well, the Conservatives have fired the first salvo by costing Dion's promises.
Dion's lack of priorities will plunge Canada into deficit
A Stéphane Dion Liberal government would immediately push Canada back into deficit and rack up at least $62.5 billion in new debt.
That is the conclusion of a Conservative Party report which documents the major spending commitments made by Stéphane Dion and the Liberal Party since the 2006 federal election. The costing report reveals that, over the next four years, Stéphane Dion’s lack of priorities will, at a bare minimum, plunge Canada $62.5 billion deeper into debt.
“Stéphane Dion is a weak leader whose lack of priorities will cost everyone in the form of more debt,” said Conservative MP Jim Prentice. “Canadians will need to decide if he is really worth the risk.”
Someone is flexing their muscles, and it's sure not Dion and the Liberals, they are too busy walking out of votes, and sitting on their hands.
