Jack has health issues (get better) and Mulclair is breathing down his neck waiting to take over. Duceppe wants to get into Quebec provincial politics and Iggy just wants to go home to Haaarvard. So they collude together to bring down the Conservative government, that they hate. They grab onto the first misstep they can, the Bev Oda "NOT" incident. They blow it out of proportion, and with a majority on the committee claim that the Conservatives are in "contempt" of Parliament.
This is the trigger they needed to pretend that an election was necessary. It is so slimy, so blatant, that Canadians are disgusted with their behaviour. Notice how the poll numbers are increasing for the Conservatives. Contrary to what the opposition think, voters are NOT stupid.
It makes for good sound bites on TV, but it will fail to convince voters. Iggy says no coalition if he gets a minority, well duhhh. He needs to say no coalition if PM Harper gets a minority. We are waiting.
Why would a party with polls showing them at 25% and dropping force an election? The only reason for them to do it would be if they had an agreement with the NDP and Bloc to form the next government. Unelected Liberal leader Iggy wants to become the unelected PM. This is so disgusting on so many levels that I can't believe anyone could vote for his party.
The obvious solution to prevent the takeover of our government by socialists and separatists is to give the Conservatives a majority.
Our Parliament has been dysfunctional because the opposition refuse to vote with the Conservatives. It's time to give the opposition the boot. This election is going to get very nasty, because lefties themselves are unhappy, dissatisfied people. I don't even think they like themselves. For example we have a National Post commenter :
In 2008 the opposition MP's ALL signed an agreement to form a coalition to take over power from the elected Conservative party. Everyone in every opposition riding needs to ask their MP whether they still stand by their signature on an agreement that is still active. Get their response on camera. If they did it once, they will do it again.
What we really want to hear about endlessly is the coalition that is so vivid in Mr Harpers imagination.
Why would we want to hear more about that nasty contempt of parliament thing, just because it is the first time it has ever happened in Canada, (or for that matter, the Commonwealth) ; why it's just so embarrassing .
The three retiring Amigos should be ashamed of themselves for forcing an election no one wants to feed their egos.
A Conservative MAJORITY is the only solution.
