Having built up employment insurance reform as the single issue that avoided a summer election, Liberals now say it’s not an issue worthy of triggering a vote in the fall.
Even as a Conservative, I could respect this news a lot more if Michael Ignatieff and the Liberals hadn’t made such a big issue out of EI reform in the first place. Not that long ago, according to them, it was so badly needed that they were ready to call an election!
What has changed?
I thought Iggy was supposed to be a different kind of leader than Stéphane Dion. But it would appear that where the rubber meets the road, MI is just Dion v2.0: The English Version!
