Anyway, why is he doing this? No, I don't like the idea of tax hikes necessarily, but if we're going to be spending like Conservative drunken sailors, then maybe Ignatieff is right. Though I'd rather a party that would just reduce government spending. But all of this is beside the point. Regardless of Iggy's views, seeing that he doesn't even live in the Ottawa-Orleans riding (then again, neither does Galipeau; he's just a transplant from a neighbouring neighbourhood), it's really none of our business what his views are; that's for his own constituents to decide.
Add to that that as an MP, referred to as "Honourable Member", he should be able to function in a somewhat less partisan manner, able to show some class, focus on consulting with the community he's supposed to be representing (after all, he's supposed to represent the local community's Iggy supporters too) rather than just bashing another MP who's not even in our riding.
How do such shallowly partisan MP's come to power? What's wrong with our voters? No wonder our nation is so divided; even our own MP's are busy dividing the nation against itself on partisan grounds, as if we don't have enough ethnic division already with English,Canada, Quebec, and the First Nations and Inuit, and immigrant communities. Shouldn't his job be to try to unite the community rather than promote further partisan divisions?
Seriously, what's wrong with our system that our Parliament should be crawling with such vermin?
