Pierre Poilievre during Question Period today, answered ever question with an example of opposition use of their own "in and out". Duceppe asks a question, Pierre responds with examples of the Bloc doing the "same thing". LeBlanc asks a question, Pierre gives an account of how he and other Liberals did the "same thing". Point, counter-point, hard to find the truth, maybe Pierre is really on to something?
I was wondering if Pierre could go one further, considering other parties where playing on the margins, just like the Conservatives. Surely, there must exist some former Liberal candidates, disgruntled Bloc candidates, forsaken NDP candidates, who would be willing to come forward to question the ethics of their own parties "schemes". Clearly, there must be a riding somewhere, where an opposition candidate refused to participate, their moral compass out of whack?
Since everyone is doing the "same thing", then why is it that only former Conservative candidates like Cynthia Downey, Joe Goudie, Gary Caldwell, Barbro Soderberg are on record questioning their party's actions? Why were there two Conservative ridings that flatly refused to participate in the perfectly legitimate expenditures? Why do we only hear of Conservatives smelling something "fishy"?
Hey Pierre, we don't need to compare and contrast with other parties. Seems to me, we can just use CONSERVATIVES to prove the point. I wait with anticipation for former Liberal, Bloc and NDP candidates to come forward and demonstrate their own reservations and questions about their respective party's activities. Seems entirely logical, after all everybody was doing it. Right?
