Dion, don’t sell out

I was meaning to do a post on this topic, but my thoughts have been captured fairly well here. If Dion wants to fight the “not a leader” meme, he should not back down from opposing the throne speech.

I know he will be rapped with the idea that he is wasting taxpayer’s money by “causing” an election. This is the new talking point that the Conservatives are pushing – they want to govern and if there is an election, it’s the fault of the opposition.

This is ridiculous. The Conservatives can count (I hope) and surely they are aware that they are in a minority situation. If they make a confidence bill that is unpalatable to the opposition, they will trigger an election. Dion needs to hit them hard on this point if he does trigger an election.
