Dion the Saviour

October 2007
Angelo Persichilli (Harper: Bully or shrewd political strategist, Toronto Sun, Oct 21) has hit the nail right on the head with this one.

Dion is refusing to vote against the throne speech primarily to save his political hide. If Dion truly believes the Conservative government was that bad for Canada, he should vote the government down and take his chances with the electorate. I do applaud the Prime Minister for throwing down the gauntlet, although I’ll be the first to admit that we don’t need an election right now. I know from speaking to my MP, Patrick Brown, that a lot of Conservative legislation would have been passed if not for Liberal stalling. Maybe things will finally get done on the Hill now.
