Conservative Sleaze Hits New Low

Do Canadians really want someone who would stoop this low to be their Prime Minister? Again?

From the Tory war room:

More and more Liberals are openly starting to muse about Dion’s leadership. In fact, even one of St├ęphane Dion’s few original caucus supporters is now wondering out loud whether he regrets supporting him.

Charles Hubbard: “I sometimes say in my mind ‘what if Bob Rae or Michael Ignatieff were leader?’” (New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal, October 2, 2008)

Versus the context of that quote:
Does [Hubbard] regret his early support for Dion?

“I don’t think so,” said the low-key Hubbard, a former high school principal. “I sometimes say in my mind ‘what if Bob Rae or Michael Ignatieff were leader?’

“But the Conservatives would have done the same thing.

“No matter who it was, they would have run comparable ads.”

Kady O'Malley over at Macleans has the full transcript.

That someone is so desperate to hang onto power that he would stoop this low astounds me. Whether Harper saw this before it was released, I don't know. But even if he didn't, he hires the people who did. Mr. micro-manager Harper lets little happen in the Conservative camp without his express approval.

Canadian voters must be made aware of just how low these power-hungry men (they're almost all men) will go to rule this land and to force a two-thirds majority of us who don't share their ideology. That they take actions to deliberately, blatantly deceive voters should say it all.
