Yes, all the right wing media and the Blogging romper roomies all in emergency mode, slamming Frank Graves for simply making comments about the Liberal party and what they should do do if they want to win elections.
We saw Ezzy IreLevant’s blood pressure go up over Mr. Graves and his statements about whoa is him…Iggy hates Alberta! Well, no Ezzy, ya got that backwards. However…not to mention… years ago, I don’t seem to remember Chretien campaigning a whole hell of a lot in Alberta; at least, not as much as he did in the rest of Canada.
I don’t get the tizzy; the twisting of conservative digestive tracts and the rising of blood pressures over the statement regarding Alberta. It’s true! Conservative Alberta will never vote Liberal or any other party that isn’t right of center. Can anyone honestly say anything to the contrary?
I gotta admit, this is definitely a keeper! Aìn’t he precious?
Anyhow, between Iggy offering to forgive up to 20,000$ after four years in student loans for doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners to go work in rural areas, where they are sorely lacking; and, his latest proposal today (which would also appeal to urban Canadians) is a subsidy to promote ‘Buy Local’ produce as part of a Liberal food plan being unveiled.
• An $80-million “buy-local” fund to promote farmers’ markets and home-grown foods.
• A $40-million program to help 250,000 low-income children get better access to healthy food.
• New health-labelling criteria for food and tougher standards on trans-fats.
• Investing $50 million to ensure foreign imports meet local standards and to improve food inspections.
Judging by Ezzy IrreLevant’s appearance above, looks like he can stand to add some of that healthy Canadian farm fruits and veggies in his diet.
“We need more home-grown food on Canadian tables because our health and our economy depend on it,” Ignatieff told reporters at a farm just north of Toronto.
“Our farmers produce the healthiest, safest, highest-quality foods in the world and we’ll help them get more of their products on our tables with Canada’s first comprehensive National Food Policy.”
According to Iggy, this program would be paid for by cancelling the corporate tax breaks.
Here is more about the Liberals’ Rural Canada Matters program.
Iggy’s proposals for rural Canada doesn’t sound like he’s about to engage in a cultural war with them. That ol’ Divide and Conquer game, is more Brother Steve’s thing. In fact, he invented the culture war that Frank Graves was talking about.
If as you all say Graves is just another Liberal hack who’s polling is unreliable, why are you all making a big stink out this? Why not simply ignore it and move on to important things, like dreaming up new hideous ways for Steve to drive us closer to a totalitarian regime?
No, Iggy and the Liberals are coming up with ideas and policies. Iggy is starting to show leadership. I think this is cause for concern for the Harpercons, especially with their own little scandals (something to note; someone mentioned awhile back that is applicable to the current Harpercon situation; it isn’t necessarily the scandals themselves; it’s how they’re handled. Clearly Steve is mishandling each one) and their cheerleaders.
Iggy, you’re starting to go on the right track now: never mind the right slanted corporate media, the pundits and other Harpercon cheerleaders; they will lambaste you, no matter what you do. Someone also pointed out, you will never please everyone all of the time. Paul Martin failed at it and President Obama is learning the hard way.
