"Let’s check the money trail of the $2 billion gun registry. It was a ridiculous idea in the first place, but never mind that. Even if you were in favour of it, wouldn’t you want to know how the money was spent?
Give the Liberals the benefit of the doubt that the payments were not made via envelopes or suitcases filled with cash. All payments for goods provided and services rendered were made by cheque.
Who received the money? How much work did they do for it and were they connected to the Liberal Party?"
from the USA they could shoot their mouths off but when we get 85% of our trade with the USA then perhaps they can find some other issues to concentrate on like being globally competitive.Shooting off your mouth negatively in public about your biggest trading partner to garner a few extra votes might seem like a good idea when you are desperate. However when hundreds of thousands of jobs are at stake and when you no longer have the benefit of a 70 cent dollar, it might be wise to stifle your negative comments in public so you won't jeopardize more jobs. Anybody with a half ounce of common sense knows you don't tick off your biggest customer if you expect to get more business.There are too many Canadians that have been out of work because a few public officials suffered from foot in the mouth disease.As for using the airwaves to knock the USA to get votes,let's not forget in a case of an emergency the USA will be there and we've been getting away with a downsized military because the USA has been carrying the heavy freight.

So they had left us pretty well defenseless anyway.Now they are only putting back about $13 billion with the bulk of that 4 years down the road.Promises, promises, promises, CSIS is short 700 personnel, The RCMP at least 2000 officers, CBSA about 1500 people.Which Party will protect Canadians better?? We've seen the track record of the Liberals.The first duty of a government is to protect its citizens.We didn't have the capability to fight effectively in Iraq even if they wanted to , not because of the dedicated men and women in the military but because the government didn't provide them the means to carry on effectively.We've had lots of promises that ended up as more smoke and mirrors.Our military personnel and Canadians deserve better than that.
"TOMORROW'S historic Iraqi election is about a heck of a lot more than choosing 275 new parliamentarians for Iraq's first full-term, post-Saddam government. It's equally key to fomenting change in next-door Iran and Syria, breaking al Qaeda and serving notice on other Middle Eastern despots that their days are numbered.
This will be no ordinary day at the polling booth. Iraqi voting will — once again — shake the pillars of Middle Eastern terror and tyranny like a political earthquake, creating (democratic) nightmares for those who oppose the march of freedom across the region. "
