For your consideration

I’ve learned that this is what the Conservative Party MPs will be sending out in short order regarding Michael Ignatieff and his previous comments about the Ukraine and Ukrainians.

The ten-percenter shows the now famous image of the Liberal Party leader from the Just Visiting ad series.

It includes two Ignatieff quotes:

“Ukrainian independence conjures up images of embroidered peasant shirts, the nasal whine of ethnic instruments, phoney Cossacks in cloaks and boots, nasty anti-Semites” – Blood and Belonging p. 73, 1993

“Somewhere inside I’m also what Ukrainians would call a great Russian and there is just a trace of old Russian disdain for these little Russians.” – Blood and Belonging p. 81, 1993

    Helen, your ignorance is typical of angry white Tories. there are 2.4 million expatriate Canadians working and living abroad who carry our passport because they believe being Canadian is the best there is. Your comment was ignorant, possibly racist and biased.

    maybe your guy who never left this Country until he was PM is the one who is not one of us. His narrow minded and ignroant view of the world shows daily.

    Are we so starved of ideas that all we can do now is mislead the public. Where are the real Conservatives. This is so pathetic.

    westcoast Jim… the fact your party IS starved of ideas is because true conservatives are not running the show. The reformatory bunch are ideolgues with no sense of real government and only think in terms of no government is good and Christ is risen.

    They should declare bankruptcy

    the reformatory party? Such an adult debate from you. Should we revoke your “probation”? “Christ is risen…”? How ridiculously infantile. That statement may have resonance in the deep south but this neocon type bs moniker just does not have any credibility here in Canada, but Liberals just cannot resist. In the absence of any policies or principles, create boogey men, to scare the uninformed faithful.

    What policies have the Tories implemented? They said there would be no deficit in the last election campaign and now we have a $50BB one. But, surely you must have simply forgotten that little tidbit. How about 4 year elections? Forgot that one too? Accountability? Must be dementia setting in

    The attack ads and ten percenters are also BS so we're even I guess.

    You will see them called the rfeformatory party much more as an election looms. It suits their personality becasue they are neither conservatives nor progessives and thye do need a moniker.
