Liberal Coalition with Conservatives

Liberal Coalition

The following is an email I sent today to Michael Ignatieff and to all Coalition members of parliament:

Dear Mr. Ignatieff,

I see by your despicable actions of today that you are more concerned with your own political future and that of the Liberal Party of Canada than you are with protecting the most vulnerable in our society. Somehow this does not surprise me as your whole background has been one of privilege. To say I am disappointed with your decision to turn your back on the hundreds of thousands of Canadians who are presently suffering (and whose ranks will soon be swelling), and who will most certainly continue to suffer under a Harper/Conservative government, would be an understatement. But I suppose a man of your background and upbringing is more concerned with politics than with doing the right thing. Which would have been to support the NDP and Bloc in forming a coalition government to protect all Canadians from a party whose track record has been…

Conservatives do not believe that people can work together and help each other so they do not believe in government and law. Instead they believe in a dog-eat-dog, everyone on-their-own and out-for-themselves society where the strongest survive and it doesn’t matter what happens to everyone else. So whenever conservatives gain power they abuse it and use it to get money for themselves and their friends.

Your actions today confirm in many people’s minds that the Conservatives and Liberals are nothing more than different sides of the same coin. Consolidating your position while attempting to build your party’s coffers may be in your mind a prudent course of action, but I tell you sir, you have lost not only the moral highroad but the good will of the people, and that will be clear to you and your fellow Liberal MP’s come the next election. That you can take to the bank!

John Prince, Liberal

Comedy and tragedy are two sides of the same coin. A talent in one area might also lead to a predisposition in the other.

    It appeared you missed the point in the fable of mouseland. What has happened should point it out very clearly. You have to remember they are all cats.

  2. Gary Taje says:

    I better clarify. When I said “they are all cats” I meant the Liberals and Conservatives. Which of course makes Harper the leader of one colour of cats and Ignatieff the leader of the other colour of cats.

  3. John Prince says:

    In my mind, at this time, they are all ‘alley cats’, deserving of ‘mice coming together’ to run them off, and then run things for themselves.

    There was no need for your second post Gary. I’m not stupid. Nor are the creme-de-la-creme of the blogging community who frequent my blog. ;-)

    btw/ I notice that both you and Dean are not very forthcoming in your ‘positions or opinions’? Dean hums around the sidelines, while you tend to be non-committal, except in a roundabout way? The people want to hear from their leaders, ‘what to think’, so that they can sleep better at night. :-)

  5. Gary Taje says:

    LOL: never think for a moment that I would think you stupid, and I know the creme de creme that frequent your blog definitely are not stupid (I frequent your blog, hmm then again maybe I am not the creme de creme). Any way your post was a delight to read (its great watching you talk to others the way you talk to me at times) and put me in a humourous mood and…I just could not resist. (try and see the devilish grin on my still smiling face)
    Its fun to watch you being you….when its not directed my way.

    Good stuff the last few posts John

  6. Gary Taje says:

    yeah I know I didn’t say creme-de-le-creme…hard to type when having fun

  7. John Prince says:

    Thanks for your ‘feel good’ post Gary. It must be contagious cause you got me laughing too. LOL :-)

    btw/ You certainly are one of the creme de la creme in my books. ;-)
