Canadian bona fides at issue

From a Globe report today on Michael Ignatieff's response to the Harper attack ads, a Harper spokesperson is put in the position of justifying their content. Can't see that being a good sign this early on:
"Mr. Harper's press secretary, Dimitri Soudas, said last night the issue is not the years Mr. Ignatieff spent abroad, but that he came back only to try to become prime minister.

Canadians who chose to work outside the country don't pretend that Canada is not their country,” he said in an e-mail." (emphasis added)
So glad to be receiving lessons now from young spokesthingies about how Canadians should properly act, here and abroad. Perhaps they could issue us all a manual with a checklist or something.

Speaking of pretending that Canada is not your country while abroad, guess who this is, btw, since they're all up in everybody's bidness about showing your Canadian bona fides while abroad...

Yep, you guessed it...:)
