Mr. Dion had earlier described the Throne Speech as “vague” and “full of holes”.I must say, the aftermath of the speech has been pretty entertaining. In fact, it's a good reason to keep this House in session and not have an election. Dion certainly put Yak Layton in his place, quickly and succinctly. And as I listen to John Baird hyperventilating in the background as I type, Dion's providing a very effective contrast to these monkeys. In fact, in the back and forth of the questioning, he's meeting their bluster and raising his response to outshine them. If this is what we are to see in this session, I am very hopeful.
“It warrants little faith,” Mr. Dion told Parliament as he opened debate on the response to the Throne Speech.
But there was one up-side, he said: It was not as bad as the speech the combined Houses of parliament would have heard had the Conservatives held a majority government.
And he said Canadians can count on his statement that “this Conservative Party will never form a majority.”
Oh, Harpie's on his feet...repeating the bizarre "government is clean" slogan. Sounding notably subdued and sprinkling his remarks with references to historical characters. Looks like a new version of the chameleon we're witnessing this session, but I guess time will tell...:)
