Dion touts tariffs on countries that are ‘free-riders'
Check out the 700+ comments, they are all about an election being called, not a tariff. The Globe pulls a fast one, changes the story, but keeps the comments from a previous article.
Dion muses about an election because his "green shaft" is going so well, the Globe prints it, then changes the story. Why did they change the story? Dion talks about a fall election, then suddenly the story is about a tariff? Talk about changing the channel when you don't like what you hear!
Meantime back at the ranch, Canoe asked this question, based on the same story the Globe had featured, "Do you want a federal election this fall?", the responses are very interesting. Start with first page (12 at this time would be the first), it will give you a true sense of how Canadians feel about an election in the fall. From the comments, it looks like about 98% do not want an election. Just a sample for those who are too lazy/busy to go to the site:
NO! and once again, Stephane Dion shows just how much he is out-of-touch with Canadians.

I'm with Buck, the sooner we get a tory majority the better.

Yes, Harper has done such a great job he should be given a majority

Canadians are ready for another election?? Seems to me that the liberals are still out of touch with popular sentiment. There's no way Dion or the liberal mafioso are getting my vote or that of anyone else I know. They did enough damage while they were office before. Why would we be stupid enough to set ourselves up for that again?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! I am happy with Mr. Harper, and can't STAND the sight of DION!! We haven't forgotten the MESS the Liberals left behind.....NO ,NO ,NO to and election this Fall and someone please tell Dion to quit having pipe dreams. When he was in AB, who did he talk to??? NOT voters, but university students....NO ELECTION & DEFINETELY NO DION!!!

You notice I didn't pick and choose, the ones I liked, I just copied some responses in a block, look at the times posted if you don't believe me. Read more of the comments, it's not pretty for Dion. Guess that's why the Globe tried to change the channel on their own site, the response to an election was anything but favorable to Dion. Slimy tactics by the Globe, make it seem that the tariff article is so popular it gets over 700 comments, when in actuality it was an article about Dion calling an election that generated all the comments.
Grow up Globe, you are supposed to be a paper that represents Canadians, not just Liberals. Make Liberal Gloria Galloway put a tag at the end of any article admitting that she is married to Liberal Dion's top Liberal adviser. Clean up your act, maybe then you might get some ad revenues coming in to save your paper.
