Stéphane Dion suggested in Vancouver today the possibility of increasing the $100,000-savings deposit insurance provided by the government.
Either this is pure fear mongering of the worst kind or, if he knows of impending bank failures the rest of us don't know about, he should explain exactly why such a move is called for.
Of course, the liberal, left-leaning media seldom challenges him on anything. He tosses these things out and his friends pick them up and repeat them throughout the main stream media.
I noticed that this measure, one of the very few specifics Dion has offered, is one that will only benefit the really wealthy in this country—how many middle-class families have over $100,000 in their bank accounts?
During a time of financial crisis around the world, Dion spreads fear and confusion in the hope voters will forget that the central plank in his platform is a $40 billion carbon tax.
