How to attack Harper's assertion that the choice is between a Conservative Majority a Coalition

Ignatieff has to turn the tables on Harper's coalition clap trap. This is how he could do it.

"Mr Harper says the choice is between a Conservative majority and coalition of the other parties. He said he will not form a minority led government. In other words, if he does not get his majority he is going to take his ball and go home. This shows a shocking lack of leadership and it is a slap in face of every Canadian, particularly every Canadian who supports him. If the Canadian people give Stephen Harper another minority on May 2, and obviously I hope that this is not the case and believe that it will not be the case, I expect Mr Harper to accept the Governor Generals invitation to form the next government and to work with other parties to make it work. I do not expect him to cry like a two year and proclaim that a minority is not a good enough and that all he is willing to accept is a majority."

Ignatieff can't put his underwear on the right way without looking into a mirror these days.He is incoherent.

Harper has governed for 5 years without pussy footing with sepratists and socialists.

"Harper has governed for 5 years without pussy footing with sepratists and socialists."


Now leaving aside the fact that Quebecers hate his guts and a Harper majority would likely increase support for separation, Harper record leaves a lot to be desired.

After all, this is man who wrote a paper called "Separation, Alberta-style: It is time to seek a new relationship with Canada."


This is a man who said Albertans had a lot to learn from Quebec Separatists.

"It is to take the bricks and begin building another home -- a stronger and much more autonomous Alberta. It is time to look at Quebec and to learn. What Albertans should take from this example is to become "maitres chez nous."

This is a man who held up Belgium, a country on the verge of breaking up, as a model for Canada

"I think we should look at more creative ways of dealing with some of the demands for change in the country," Harper said. "I used the Belgium model."
... "I want my party to consider how this model could be adopted to Canada," Harper said in a prepared text of the speech.

And this is man who downplayed the importance of a yes vote for separation and said it was of secondary imporatance to him.

"Whether Canada ends up as o­ne national government or two national governments or several national governments, or some other kind of arrangement is, quite frankly, secondary in my opinion"

Koby ;

Duceppe is on record saying the a Conservative majority is the worst thing that could happen to the sepratist cause.

The Lib numbers in Quebec are far worse than the Cons.Particularly in Francophone Quebec. We all know why that is don't we.

Here's a thought... Seeing as the last poll had 92% of Conservative voters as 'certain' they were going to vote conservative, and seeing as the Liberals have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at Harper and nothing has stuck, perhaps now would be a good time to take a look in the rear view mirror and see the big freaking organge bus that is about to run over the Liberal party.

I just don't understand how the Liberal party can run a campaign and not say a bad word about Layton and the NDP, and not even put out one attack ad against the NDP.

News flash... The Tories aren't going anywhere, and the NDP are. If I was working in the Liberal war room, the NDP and Jack Layton would be enemy #1 for me right now, not Harper.

Anonymous 6:48, unless you can cite proof of what you say you are a lying moron. Canada deserves better than bullshit without proof like you've cited. Unless you can probe your statements you are a pox upon this country

No the Liberals and Conservatives are about even. Liberals hold down seats in federalist Montreal and Conservatives hold seats in nationalist Quebec City. We all know why that is.

Mr Ignatief cant really say much now, his campaign has gone from not a coalition to Harpers secrecy to Harper will gut Health care to yes to a coalition. This campaign is all over the map and its allowed Layton to look like an alternative. Want to know whats frustrating? The LPC has allowed a socialistic anti business party to tie them as a viable opposition party...say it slowly...the LPC and NDP are now seen as far left fringe partys. I hope those freakin polls are wrong.
