Anyone who watched Question Period on Monday was treated to a display of over-emotional hyperbole by the leader of the Liberal Party. An accounting dispute from 2006, which the Tories won in federal court, is suddenly "undermining our democracy"? That's right, regional candidates purchasing national advertising is going to transform our democracy into a Fascist dictatorship. Will that be the narrative of the Liberals next election campaign?
As the Tories and Dippers were releasing new commercial advertising, the best the cash strapped Libs can manage are cheap T-shirts? If that's what they think is sound pre-election campaign strategy, this might be a larger victory than I would have otherwise predicted. The Liberals seem concerned by their poor fundraising efforts, and even jealous that the Tories continue to accrue substantial financial support from their base. Liberal supporters are unwilling to send Iggy any money, hence why the Liberals are not releasing new commercials at this critical time.
