Yesterday Mike Ignatieff said at a fundraiser "but let’s be clear: we didn’t end the 25-year consensus on a woman’s right to choose. They did." What? There was no abortion debate until the Liberals started one. How can Ignatieff say "we didn’t divide rural and urban Canada over gun control. They did"; when rural Canada is widely against the long gun registry and the Tories want to scrap it? This doesn't make any sense! He is accusing the Tories of starting debates that Iggy himself initiated.
I'm sure it is not a coincidence that just as Ignatieff comes under fire for trying to start a culture war, he attempt to deflect fire by accusing the government of doing what Iggy actually did. It is not as though I should be surprised. Any opposition leader under fire for trying to divide the country will try to shift the blame to the Government. That is par for the course.
