As if Beer and Popcorn wasn't enough ...
Liberal Leadership Candidate Carolyn Bennett decided to take the rhetoric to a whole new level. On Mike Duffy's post budget show Bennett was joined by the NDP's Olivia Chow and Minister Diane Finley.
When asked to comment on the Conservative Party's Child Care initiative contained in the budget, this is what she had to say:
"Well it certainly uh uh, the approach to child care is just spiteful its its its canceling the supplement for our most vulnerable children. There is actually no plan for early learning and childhood education (ECE). SO its a good job they're putting more money for prisons in the budget because we're gonna need them if we don't get this early childhood right."Keep statements like this in mind as you watch the Liberal Party develop their new "vision" for Canada. Personally I've had enough "vision" over the last 13 years to last me a lifetime.
It's time for action.
