Former Conservative PM, Joe Clark Slams Harper....

It was great to see Joe again... He was on Strombolopolous tonight.  His theme was the way these Conservatives are not the same Conservatives your father voted for...  He talked about what they are trying to do to Canada, and politics in Ottawa in general (including how they aren't keen on accepting those who are different from them).

A key point Joe made was how Mr. Ignatieff is turning the Liberal Party around - and reaching out to Canadians of all stripes - while the Conservatives under Harper are simply divisive and non-inclusive...  He repeated the point that there is still time to save Canada and Canadian politics...

A good man.  A couple of us had a chance to dine with him in Calgary, and we had a great discussion... Okay, okay... We tried to get him to run again... maybe in Calgary SW.  Maureen was not keen on that...

Gee, and I thought that Iggy was helping Harper in quickly passing the con's budget, saying he supports Canadians continue involvement in the "war" effort in Afghanistan, and thinking the oilsands is swell.
Pray tell, what degree of separation is between Harper & Iggy?
Personally, I see Iggy remaking the Liberal party of Canada into the image of an "American liberal", which we all know is right wing in Canadian politics.

Its a pity some losers can't just shut up and go away. Joe Who already has his place in history.
His party no longer exists, mainly thanks to him.

Except of course environmentalist who he just told to "go to hell" with his latest defence of the Tar Sands.
