“Liberal Leader Stephane Dion admitted that the government shouldn't interfere with Hockey Canada decisions, but called the Tories' silence on the issue 'shocking.'” http://www.cbc.ca/cp/hockey/070430/h043045A.html
No Stephane, what is “shocking” is how politically inept the Liberals have repeatedly proved to be. Adjectives such as “shocking” should be used sparingly and should only used to describe things that are truly shocking. There are political consequences to calling a lit candle a fire. The political consequences of hyperbole aside, the Conservatives are in the midst of a major political scandal and it is unforgivable that you decided to distract the media’s attention and for no good reason. Indeed, the issue in question is bound to be hopelessly unpopular outside of Quebec, is over two years old and the Shane Doan was cleared of the allegations in question anyway.
"The National Hockey League's investigation clearly shows that that was stated, but it also clearly shows that they felt that it wasn't Shane Doan."
Worst of all, the Shane Doan affair reinforces the perception that the Liberals are a bunch of easily offended nitpicky, opportunistic, shrill, huffy, strictly by the book, do gooders who are constantly going on about Canada’s many “obligations”. No wonder the Conservatives raised 10 times the amount the Liberals did in the first quarter of this year. The Dion Liberals have no street credibility and Dion seems to want to become the anti Trudeau. "Fuddle Duddle".
