Adam Radwanski debunks one complaint about Michael Ignatieff and substitutes a better one.
Consistency, then, is not the issue. The issue is that Ignatieff is still mouthing the same platitudes he was mouthing back in January, when his leadership was barely a month old. That may change in the fall, or whenever an election campaign beckons … For now, though, one gets the sense that Ignatieff still thinks it’s enough to simply promise not to do what Stephane Dion would have done. That should concern everyone – not just Albertans – much more than where he happens to be when he makes his comments, because not doing anything means leaving the decision to others.
In the meantime, someone’s uploaded a couple bits from Ignatieff’s emphatically enunciated stumping at the Stampede this weekend.
