Stéphane Dion made a startling admission in last night's debate. He promised that, if elected, he would ask regulatory agencies what he should do, and he will ask major economists for their assessments of the Canadian and World situation. All of which tells us how out of touch this man is.
As the leader of the official opposition, shouldn't Dion already have all this data? To what other sources would he have looked before preparing his multi-billion dollar platform, including his radical plan to introduce a carbon tax.
The information has been there for some time now. What has not been there is any real political leadership from Dion.
Fact is, Dion and the Liberals do not have a creditable plan for Canada and will not have one for months after being elected. It'll take him 30 days just to get up to speed on the situation, then a plan has to be prepared and presented, etc., etc. …
Dion railed against Stephen Harper's initiatives in parliament then voted with the government or sat out the vote time and time again. One of the most bizarre things seen in the history of our parliament.
That is not my idea of leadership.
