On a day when we've got record bankruptcies, (when) we've got unemployment skyrocketing, all this government can think of doing is running attack ads on me. This is the old style of politics. We are in the middle of a serious economic crisis. This government needs to grow up and do its job properly.

Gee Iggy should have asked for EI reform back in January when the Liberals were in a position to bargain and prop up the Harper Con budget - but workers weren't worth it.
Now, Iggy is doing the great liberal pretend - fake left and make no mistake nothing will happen will EI - remember it was the Libs who created this financial disaster in EI.
The problem is, the liberals just don't have any credibility when it comes to EI reform and standing up for workers - voting down anti-scab labour legislation comes to mind.
Iggy is no victim.
It would be good to see Liberals show up in the house and get down to work instead of this phony pissing war.

So jan, if Iggy continues to stand up to Harper on this issue & will vote down the govt. in a non-confidence motion on it what will Jack do? Stand with the Libs or stand with Harper? That should be interesting to see what he chooses.
