Hard Tory Times

Bruce Champion-Smith looks over the past few weeks for the Tories. It has been very hard for them. Wasting time on changing the national anthem and not including contraception in their plans for hosing the G20 nations. A new motion was set to have the speaker find three ministers in contempt of Parliament. Stephen Harper has to start re-portraying himself as a strong leader if he wants to regain even more support. If not, people are going to abandon him.
OTTAWA–It's been a jarring few weeks for the Conservatives with climb-downs and flip-flops on everything from the national anthem to contraception.
In Parliament, the Conservatives also initially bucked a motion to crack down on political mailings, mocked an NDP motion to put limits on prorogation, and continue their battle with opposition MPs seeking to view documents on the detention of Afghan detainees.

  1. Only a blind partisan in denial would suggest that the Tory troubles are worse than the current issues in the Lib. camp.

  7. A note for times like this: Dec 09, 2008

    The Liberals want to have a new leader in place before the end of the year, so they can prepare for a possible showdown with the Tories in Parliament early next year.

    Rae had wanted all Liberal members to vote on the leadership. But the party’s national executive decided they would have a vote that only included MPs, senators, riding association presidents, club presidents, and defeated candidates. They also decided it would be on Dec. 17 – not enough time for Rae to organize a significant challenge to Ignatieff, who already had the support of support.

    “I learned how to count a while ago,” Rae joked on CTV’s Mike Duffy Live. “I drew a conclusion that said it was time to pack it in.”

    Liberal Sen. Céline Hervieux-Payette, who participated in the conference call, was reportedly furious over the process by which Ignatieff will take power, Fife said.

    “This will destroy the Liberal Party, I’m devastated by what this will do to the party, they don’t understand anything about democracy,” she said, according to notes obtained by Fife.

    And yet the Conservatives went up in the polls again. And you Liberals went down...mmm, mmm, mmm.
