Cornwall ON – Jack Layton ripped into Michael Ignatieff clearly showing strong leadership in trying to force changes to the upcoming Conservative budget.
“The opposition has the opportunity to do some tough bargaining with Mr. Harper right now,” Mr. Layton told The Canadian Press.
“But for that to happen, Mr. Ignatieff has got to be a real Opposition leader.”
“Take those particularly obnoxious things that have nothing to do with the budget out of the budget now,” Mr. Layton said.
An NDP amendment to be debated in the Commons this coming week would remove them from the larger bill.
“You know something’s wrong when the leader of the Opposition rushes to condemn the budget, then makes sure it passes.”
The NDP Leader said two in three employees in Ontario no longer have a workplace pension plan.
That’s about as put up or shut up as it gets. So why is Mr. Ignatieff giving Mr. Harper a free pass? Is this all just political point taking? Is it about MP pensions? Is it about not having a chance to win at this time? What do you think Canada?
