Yesterday it was extending the term of the Governor General. Today's it's unveiling a Liberal policy for a $3,000 refundable tax credit for volunteer firefighters.
Look, I appreciate volunteer firefighters as much as the next guy, but why does Ignatieff keep linking himself with piddly little policy pronouncements? Does he not want the public to take him seriously? It comes across sounding as though he's talking for the sake of getting noticed. With all the problems afflicting our country today, the tax plight of volunteer firefighters surely isn't really that high on the list. It makes Iggy look like he's lost in minutiae, grasping at straws to mask a lack of vision.
We waited well over a year for Ignatieff to host his "thinkers' conference" and he's had two months since then to formulate policy all the while the LPC's national support continually sags.
Sorry but it's time for this guy to deliver something meaningful that will energize the Liberal Party and resonate with the voting public - or get out of Dodge. The party faithful have displayed their considerable capacity for political masochism but enough is enough.
