Michael Ignatieff was going around in January honing his story about how his “family came over in a boat” and now has released an ad with that and other surreal dialogue about his Dad who Iffy says:
– “was a refugee who came here with nothing”
– “lived that immigrant dream, up the ladder one rung at a time.”
The media should be laughing in Iffy’s face over this but instead you have guys like Aaron Wherry from Macleans who never misses a chance to write a snarky comment about what a Conservative says or does, only posts the video for the Liberals without a word.
Then, when the Conservatives put out a missive on Iffy’s Dad’s real story you get Susan Delacourt taking a shot at the Conservatives for daring to challenge Iffy:
“Feel free to stop, have a coffee, go out and have life halfway through this screed, which seems to be dedicated to the idea that there are fake immigrants in Canada, and then ones that Conservatives like (“typical” immigrants). I leave you to figure out where the distinction lies”
So typical…(see Delacourt’s snark and the Con missive here)
Also: This isn’t the first time Iffy has been caught stretching his “I’m just an ordinary Joe-Canada” story. See here when he lied about his “public education”
