The Canadian election season is officially open, and with the season comes the first online attack-website: ignatieff.me.
The site, about the Liberal leader, has a tagline: “It’s not about you. It’s just about him.” (emphasis theirs.) At the bottom comes the expected text: “Authorized by the Registered Agent for the Conservative Party of Canada”.
Here at the Big Bad Blog, we are well aware that politicians are prone to hypocrisy, but we feel the need to remind our Canadian audience of this headline in the Globe and Mail, which is now one month and three days old:
That’s right, that same Conservative Party which is claiming that you shouldn’t vote for Mr. Ignatieff because he will put himself ahead of Canada is the same Conservative Party which, when given power, removed the word “Canada” from the government and inserted that of the Prime Minister.
Hypocrisy? Thy name is the Conservative Party of Canada.
