Apparently past Liberal governments have collected over $50 billion in UI premiums illegally. Why am I not surprised? Those of us who have lived through Adscam, gun registry and other Liberal governments’ scandals and misdeeds take such news in stride.
It is a bit rich, though, for self-righteous puffed-up ex-Liberal cabinet ministers like Ralph Goodale and John McCallum to crow to us about all those wonderful Liberal budget surpluses and contingency funds, when it turns out they were created from illegally collected taxes.
It is also a bitter pill that a Conservative government has once again to clean up the financial mess left behind by the Grits. The Supreme Court has given Stephen Harper 12 months to fix this.
