It's been a very disconnected day for me, so watching tv yet and no time to follow twitter. Caught tweet coverage of the Harper launch and Ignatieff's no-coalition statement when I got up this morning, and that's it. I'm sure I'd have gotten an e-mail or something if someone's bus had run into a river, so I trust things are alright on the national campaign trail.
"The recession that we have been facing these days, Stephen Harper has failed to handle it ... It's getting worse these days. Stephen Harper 's government, they are just wasting tax payers money. Stephen Harper is changing the immigration rules, making it almost impossible for my family to reunite here in Canada. Stephen Harper is cutting millions from the services new Canadians rely on.
Stephen Harper is not in touch with the common man."
"Canadians have a lot to say about Stephen Harper.
Stephen Harper is cutting taxes for big banks and big corporations and giving us nothing. Stephen Harper's government wasted a billion dollars on the G20 and fake lake. Stephen Harper is cutting millions from immigrant settlement services. You do have a choice. Michael Ignatieff and the Liberals will invest in things that matter to Canadian families. I like Michael Ignatieff. He's intelligent and listens to us. This election, vote Liberal!"
"I love Québec. I love its people, and I love its land. I know that the majority of Quebecers consider Québec as their nation and Canada as their country. I was the first to acknowledge this fact. I believe that it is possible for one to be Quebecer and Canadian in the order of one's choice.
And I know that we need the commitment and the creativity of Quebecers in order to create an even stronger Canada."
