Ignatieff flexes muscles

We are putting this government on probation," Ignatieff said. "This budget does not include one word about accountability.

The Liberals are going to support the Tory budget, but at a cost, as new Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff asks for an amendment to the budget. It's likely the Tory's will give in to this. All this positioning means Harper gets to play Prime Minister for a while longer, while Ignatieff builds stature.

I knew that coalition wouldn't last long and I must say I'm disappointed. Not sure how I feel about Ignatieff flexing his muscles in this way...

Love your reports...remember it's hard for me to find info even on google. If I don't know what to google I can't look for it!

I love him flexing his muscles...I hope Ignatieff takes a page from Obama who has already done some astounding flexing in a week....all the way to putting that foot down.

We are seeing the healthy side of Canadian politics in these kinds of stands.
