What Business Does a Sitting Government Have Proclaiming Policies Another Government Would Have to Introduce?
When Harper was in Davos he was practically busting to tell the high priced nobs that he was going to trim Canada's sails, especially our nation's Old Age Security programme. That promptly backfired sending Tory MPs slithering for cover into their favourite dark places.
Not to worry. Tiny Jim Flaherty, Harper's pet leprechaun, now assures us that old age pension security won't be cut until 2020 at least, maybe not even until 2025. What? In other words, some future government will have to implement the legislation, not Harper's.
Gee, I'd really like what passes for a government today to focus on the very real problems confronting our land today and stop dicking around with something some future government may or may not do. Sheesh.
