"We will have to raise taxes," but not at the expense of hurting the recovery from this recession, Mr. Ignatieff, on a four-day tour of Southwestern Ontario, told a meeting of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce.And then...
Now that's leadership.
"But let me repeat, so there's no doubt about it. No Liberal party with a brain in its head is going to raise taxes in the middle of a recession."
Asked about tax hikes during good times, Ignatieff said: "Hopefully not then either."
And now he has a book out called "True Patriot Love". Aw.
A review from Macleans...
Ignatieff proposes patriotism as the sustaining motif in this grand lineage that reaches down to him. On one level this is merely a convenient way to package campaign fodder for a man who, after all, hopes the next federal election will make him prime minister.You know, when I was away from Canada for 7 months on a work contract, did I miss my home? Of course.
So I can sympathize with Ignatieff touting his patriotism being away for 30 years from the very country he wants to lead.
As you can see in the video below, his patriotism is unwaivering...
