It would appear that the leader of the Liberal Party has a new campaign slogan to "bring Democracy back to Canada". In his latest rants of hyperbole gone wild, Iggy repeatedly mentions that Stephen Harper is an enemy to Democracy, and the Liberals are the only true choice to those of us who respect our political system. Gotcha, like how Iggy was democratically elected as leader of the Liberal Party? What, he became leader after a backroom deal with Bob Rae? Very democratic Mike.
Or surely respect for Democracy means showing up to vote on legislation. Who was the most absent MP from the last session of Parliament? Again, Mr. Ignatieff. He considers it beneath him to vote on private members bills. Boy he sure loves his Democracy, so long as it isn't scheduled on a Friday. He doesn't like working on Fridays. I sense an overdose of hypocrisy, saying that voting for Iggy will restore Canadian Democracy. He was never elected leader and he likes skipping votes in the House of Commons. Is that the kind of Democracy you want in Canada?
