The take-away from Canada 150
I was wondering what the main theme would be, in the end.
And I found it, in Ignatieff’s closing remarks — he’s going to delay cancel the corporate tax cuts (let’s be honest — if you put them off, you’re not putting them in) and spend more creating lots of “networks”.
Which is fine. I was wondering how he would distinguish himself from Harper.
This is what he has chosen. (Along with a lot of gobbely-gook about being “the most international country”. Which I think is silly.)
So this sets things up nicely for a spring or fall vote, I say.
Let’s have an election. Or we can wait till October 2012. Whatever.
Update: A commenter over here noticed what I forgot — tossing the corporate tax cuts overboard is Jack Layton’s price for working with the Liberals.
Coalition, Part Deux?
When the 41st Parliament is called, we shall see.
