Dear the Dude,
If only you had a few simple requests to be amended to the budget, we’d be in much better shape – revised EI, investment in Canada’s green economy and renewable energy infrastructure. Turbines won’t do much good if they can’t be hooked up to the grid. And think of all the unemployed people that would cheer your efforts, these are your voters that you could help and completely clinch your spot on top. Thousands by the day!
But instead you say that they’re on “probation”. I wouldn’t have rejected it either, but this budget has been quoted as a mishmash with little focus and no big moves. This was your chance to show strength, vision, and your priorities with just a few changes. The Conservatives need to co-operate with you anyway to stay alive! Why not take one for the Big Red? Weak. You almost had me.
Back to Green. Baby Layton is disappointing, especially lately. The more he stubbornly stays in this coalition mode, the more he alienates himself from his electorate.
