Despite the transcript and the retraction, the Conservatives sent up Shelly Glover before QP this afternoon to demand that Michael Ignatieff apologize for his “insulting and offensive” comments to the Winnipeg Free Press. She pointedly dismissed the Liberal leader’s protestations because the original story was “pushed” on the Twitter account and website of the Liberal candidate in Winnipeg-North.
If he did not believe the story to be true, why would he push it out for all to see? It is simple. He believed it. He does believe that her candidacy is a game.
Charles Adler, meanwhile, blames the vast left-wing media conspiracy.
