Stéphane Dion gets away with being a copycat

Apparently plagiarism is only wrong when it is done by a conservative speech writer and is okay when done by a Liberal Minister of the Environment.

I think this is the second time popular blog, Angry in the Great White North, has pointed out similarities between the works of Stéphane Dion and that of others.

The mass media was quick to jump all over the prime minister after the Liberals pointed out similarities between a speech he made several years ago and one made by the Australian prime minister. Yet two blatant cases of copying by Stéphane Dion are documented and hardly a word is written or said by the MSM.

Curious.

  1. Reminds me of the imminent cost of the Afghan mission report by the Parlimentry Budget officer that made headlines in mid September but has yet to be released.

    The story was under the guise of asking all party leaders if they minded if the report was published. Will it even be available before the election?

    As well, the liberal that made a nasty comment to a Quebec aboriginal/indian (whatever the pc word is now a days) that got zero air time but stories about tory gaffes abound. CNews even had a question ontheir site for over a week about the impact of these gaffes on the tories. What about the gaffes and plaigerism of the liberals?
