Conservatives Breach PublicTrust - Even CPC Candidate Says So

Press Release:

A comprehensive report by the Liberal opposition shows that major infrastructure stimulus programs intended to create jobs for the unemployed have been distorted into partisan vehicles to benefit Conservative Cabinet Ministers and Conservative MPs.

I saw Gerard and Michael in the field, that was supposed to be a park, on CBC, and they were telling all about what Gerard found..very interesting......

KNB said...

I watched it too. They made very clear what has been going on.

It was a good media event. Also excellent was the report on the Cons plans for the system. Brutal, to put it mildly. Harper's getting hammered today.

penlan said...

That's prison system. Forgot the word "prison"

Savant said...

This is grasping for straws. The guy is only a CANDIDATE, and has no access to the government. He's only saying what everyone knows - that the party in power takes care of their ridings. It doesn't matter who is in power, it's been like this since politics began.

I tend to agree with the above comment. There seems little point in poking the government with a stick that the Liberals have not only used in the past themselves, but used to the point of perfection. I sure wish Ignatieff would get of this 'bashing the Conservatives over the economy bandwagon' and go after some of their more nefarious shenanigans. Like the draconian changes to our prison system. Unless of course Iggy agrees with these new directives that will affect the lives of the incarcerated.

KNB said...

Savant, your comment is ridiculous and direct parrot of the PM

Candidate not just some guy off the street, he was a regional councillor and was speaking about how the process is working.

In case that's not clear enough for you, he had intimate knowledge.

KNB said...

Not signed in, you do know that it's dangerous to make accusations w/out any info to substatiate it.

Glad to know that you're okay with pork barrel politics.

If you're a Conservative, you're a hypocrite. If you're an Iggy hater...run along

Cari said...

Is someone trying to say that this has been done before..to create a 50-60 billion deficit for votes..that is an expenive way to pander for votes.

Tomm said...

What a crock.

KNB,

If the shoe were on the other foot and a liberal candidate said stuff, you wopuld be looking for corroboration. But here, not so much.

This whole thing appears utterly desperate. But flog it all you want.

A couple things to watch for is the following:

1. I personally live in a non-Tory riding, and my riding is getting lots of stimulus money. If other people are in the same boat, the Liberal credibility drops for each person that notices this.

2. It just appears to be desperate old style Louisiana politics. The Liberal's are in effect saying that if we vote for them, they will spread around stimulus money to THEIR ridings. This does not gain them votes. It is weird and confuisng.

2. Let's pretend Gerard is correct and money is flowing toward Tory ridings, what have you really done? Just given the Tories free publicity and the electorate reason to vote Tory next time. People don't vote against a party for spite. Those guys are ALREADY voting Liberal.

This is a no-win for the Liberal's and whoever thought that banging this drum would gain votes has rocks in their head.

This time without the typos...

We have the evidence we need Tomm. Do some homework.

Partisanship aside, Kennedy is one of the most honest and hardworking MP there is.

The candidate was involved as a municipal councillor in the deal. He knows of what he speaks. Burlington Mayor? Please, part of the Harris government.

Oh yeah, there is a lot here. Most of it hypocrisy on the Con's part.

Decry and employ should be your motto.

Re' where money is deployed, read a previous post.

Your, and your party's defense is seriously pathetic.

Tomm said...

KNB,

Go ahead flog this, but it is a loser. Ignatieff throwing his face on this is also a bad move.

People don't care if Gerard has a thick resume. They all do.

Susan Delacourt and Warren Kinsella have tried to tie this to Adscam like corruption. It is going to blow up in the Liberal's faces. It doesn't just look desperate, it frankly makes the Liberals look corrupt. That the Liberal's are demanding politics be looked at when approving stimulus projects.

Baird has answers that are immediate, reasonable and believeable. Ignatieff has an empty field, a Conservative candidate's comments, and assumptions and innuendo.

And Harper is nowhere to be seen, wearing his clean teflon blue suit as he strides into the G20.

KNB said...

Baird's response only believable to the gullible. Nuff said

As pathetic as you trying to make a mountain out of a molehill? The news media are ignoring this, as are the public. Your desperation is showing here, and it's getting quite sad...

penlan said...

Aw Fred, no need to shed those tears. What? Oh right, they're crocodile tears.

I didn't say it made *me* sad...:)

No, I watch all of this with considerable amusement. If this were my blog, I'd wait for something newsworthy rather than just try to generate hysteria over nothing. If something looked 'suspect' like the Harper communion wafer fiasco (heh), I'd probably wait for confirmation or check other sources (*unbiased* ones)just be be sure. I'd see how the news media and public were reacting before I jumped in with both feet; and if it was a "slow news day", I would rather not post anything than try and fabricate something just for the entertainment of my loyal readers.

But that's just my opinion. I hate looking ignorant or uninformed if I don't have to...:)

penlan said...

You have become so tedious Fred you aren't worth reading anymore - so I, for one, will no longer be reading any of your comments that you post all over the Liberal blogosphere.

Feel free to run away, little girl...

(and this place now comprises the *entire* Liberal blogosphere? Wow. You guys are in worse shape than I thought...;)

Liberal Party’s Quebec wing resignations so far include Ignatieffs former Quebec strong man, Denis Coderre, , the Party’s chief Québec organizer, Pierre Lajeunesse, the president of the candidate approval committee, Éric Simard, fund-raiser Jean Rizzuto and a cousin of Coderre, Jean-François Coderre.

The Liberal ship is rudderless and taking on water fast.

Where’s Iggy? Thinking thoughts?

I, I, I, I, me, me, me, me......
