The Conservative government is so panicked it’s copying Liberal ideas and policies, according to Liberal leader Stephane Dion.
Wait a minute – Liberals are accusing the governing party of co-opting the more reasonable platform planks of the opposition to make Canadians happy and help the country run better, without regard to blind partisan politics… and this is a bad thing?
It is the duty of the opposition to oppose. But the party that is actually running the country has a duty to consider ideas from Canadians of all political stripes when forming policy and legislation. That isn’t a political ploy – that’s democracy in action.
