Aah!! Conservatives. No matter how much you hide, the true conservative nature always srings forth. Here is Harper’s administration demonstrating their maturity:
The Conservatives unveiled three new television ads Sunday attacking Liberal leader Stéphane Dion, a day before members of Parliament return to the House of Commons.
They also criticize Dion’s record as environment minister, charging that greenhouse gas emissions went up and air quality went down under his watch between 2004 and 2006.
In response to the ads, Dion told CBC News, “[Harper] wants to spend all this money to try to attack me in a very negative way, and it’ll backfire.”
“Canadians will not be impressed by that.”
I don’t know about that. I mean if you repeat a lie enough number of times, it becomes a fact. E.g. Kerry was labeled “flip-flopper” when in fact his record was anything but that of a flip flopper. But by the end of the 2004 presidential campaign that’s what he was called by all baring none.
As with everything else Conservatives are attacking the opposition in Canada in exaclty the same way as Republicans do in the USA.
