Why are we in this crisis of parliament? It’s important that we remind ourselves constantly what this is all about. The global economy is in serious trouble and the current government chose not to act. Instead they fudged the numbers with the most optimistic assumptions in order to hide an inevitable deficit while offering up a hyper-partisan cut to party funding that would do nothing to address the actual challenges that Canada faces.
In light of this stupid approach to Canada’s economy, Harper is the author of his own fate. Now he wants time so that he can work out a solution. He had a chance to offer a solution last week, instead he gave us lies and partisanship.
