Iggy caught lying about voting in another country

Michael Ignatieff has a habit of not being able to keep his stories straight (see here, and here) and has gotten away with it for the most part but this latest fib coming during this election should be a political disaster.

Iffy quoted in the Glasgow Herald 2004:

“I am an American Democrat. I will vote for Kerry in November”

And when Iffy’s spokesman (Michel Liboiron) was asked about this:

“Mr. Ignatieff is and always has been a Canadian citizen, period. He has never held any other citizenship and as such, has never voted in a foreign election

Iffy was either lying about voting for Kerry or is lying now and it turns out, that wasn’t the only time Iffy is on record saying he voted in another country.

This is what he had to  say about voting for the British Labour Party in 1997:

“Why did I vote Labour? I wanted the rascals [Conservatives]out”

As Brian Lilley puts it, Iffy “has some ‘splainin’ to do”.” (see here)

Iggy or Holland not telling truth on Crime Bill legislation?

The Liberals sure do have a problem keeping their campaign stories straight. Yesterday we had Bob Rae and David McGuinty critical of the Conservative’s Office of Religious Freedoms proposal but Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff loved it.

Iggy“We think an initiative like is the kind of thing that ought to have the support of all sides in politics” (see here)

Rae (Lib Foreign Affairs Critic): “It has much more to do with Canadian domestic politics than it has to do with the necessity of having a coherent strategy for the promotion of democracy and human rights”

McGuinty“We have a document in this country that does that; it’s called the Charter of Rights” (see here)

Oops…and now today we have Iggy saying he will change some of the tough-on-crime legislation: “We’re gonna review all of these. There will be substantial savings” (see here)

Quite different from what Lib Mark Holland (Public Safety Critic) said yesterday: “I don’t see anything right now that we need to go back and undo”. (see here)

Now, can you imagine the full-on media feeding frenzy if say 3 Conservative MPs completely contradicted Stephen Harper on such basic policies?

Sun’s Bonokoski tells Globe’s Ibbitson to name Press who “hate” Harper

Mark Bonokoski of the Toronto Sun challenges John Ibbitson of the Globe and Mail to tell the public who he was talking about when he said that it was no secret several members of the national press gallery in Ottawa “hate” Prime Minister Stephen Harper:

“What Ibbitson needs to do now, however, is name names so the public can be made definitively aware of which journalists in Ottawa have a personal hatred towards the prime minister.

Otherwise, how can the public safely trust any of them?

Or even Ibbitson himself?” (see here)
