Iggy the iffy continued..continued...

Oh man, this party doesn't really stand for anything, do they? That, or they just don't communicate with each other well, OR some people on the inside are mucking things up... or all three. Here's what was said in the news today...

Federal Liberals say they won't support the NDP in its effort to push a private member's climate-change bill through the House of Commons on Wednesday.

The proposed legislation, called Bill C-311, the climate change accountability act, sets strict targets for greenhouse gas emissions and is currently being considered by a House environment committee.
Liberal environment critic David McGuinty, however, said the committee needs more time to study the implications of the bill.

"We need to hear more about the American position, the European position, the Chinese position" before considering the bill, McGuinty told CBC News.
More here...

And here's what Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff said just over a month ago on September 2, 2009.
"We are not going to wait for the United States; we are not going to wait for Mr. Obama," Ignatieff said. "Canadian climate-change policy gets made in Canada. It doesn't get made in the United States."
This is too easy ... come on, you know how it goes...

"[Do something about climate change] but not necessarily [do something about climate change]."

You know, with the whole 'cheque-gate' thing with the Conservative logo and MPs signatures on big cheques, as obvious as it is, and how Stephen Harper, in 2006 got elected on being accountable and all that. Yeah, but at least the money still went back to Canadian ridings in obvious plain sight, not your tax dollars directly to Liberal cronies as cash in an envelope under a table at a restaurant.

And here's former Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Jean Chretien, in 2000 on taking credit for cash to ridings...

OTTAWA and QUEBEC CITY – Jean Chretien, the Prime Minister, yesterday said his government had nothing to apologize for in seeking to reap maximum partisan political benefit from disbursing $1-billion worth of federal job grants across Canada each year.

He had always made sure since taking power in October, 1993, that voters were left in no doubt that it was his Liberals who were distributing such grants, he said.

“Listen,” he added, “we are the government … I don’t see why we can’t try to get credit for what we do. I hope we do so. There is nothing to be ashamed in that.”

So in summary ... the opposition Liberals and their flip-flopping leader Michael Ignatieff have absolutely NO credibility on criticizing the Conservative gov't about anything.
