Just a quick note before I go to work - but wow, just watching a government press conference on how the New Conservatives are going to introduce legislation to beef up Employment Insurance, temporarily, to assist certain individuals during this economic downturn/recession/depression. They have used it as an opportunity to slam The Liberals and Michael Ignatieff and the other opposition parties. Aside from the fact that the package does not go far enough, the timing of this package is just too convenient.
Harper must really have a low opinion of Canadians if he believes that the majority of us cannot see through this cynical attempt to save his government from an election. The rhetoric coming from government officials is so thinly veiled and cynical.
Serious change needs to happen within Canada's electoral system.
