Where'd the "Green Shift" go Mr. Dion?

According to the Liberal platform, the "Green Shift" is the core of their plan. But according the Mr. Dion last night, it's not their top priority. Excuse me? Isn't the "core" of your platform usually the most important part of it, and therefore your first priority? (and before any Liberal commenters try to say "it's not the core of our plan!", try reading Page 9 of your own platform: "The Liberal green shift plan is at the heart of our commitment to fight the climate change crisis and improve Canada’s environment and economy.")

When asked during the debate last night what Mr. Dion's number one priority would be if he were elected Prime Minister (* - see below) he said (brace yourselves folks) that it wasn't the "Green Shift".

Well, he didn't actually say that... but he certainly didn't say that it was his first priority. He went on about having a series of meetings on the economy.

So, let me get this straight... the "basement" or the "foundation" of your entire platform would NOT be your first priority, Mr. Dion?

Of course, did you notice Mr. Dion never actually referred to the "Green Shift" by name last night? Not even once?

I have also have another theory on that... it's because they're flat broke.

You see, they've reached a "licensing agreement" with Ms. Jennifer Wright of the real "Green Shift". Perhaps there's some sort of "royalties" clause in the contract? You know, an "every time you say 'Green Shift' in print or on TV you owe me five bucks" kinda deal, like most other royalty deals. But he never even referred to it by name... NOT ONCE.

Why is that, Mr. Dion? Is that because you're still trying to run from, instead of on, your platform?

    Shouldn't you be defending the Conservative platform...oops, sorry. It's hard to defend what doesn't exist.

    idle hands are the devil's playground

    If there is no platform to defend, of course Cons will focus on the Liberals!

    I watched much of the debate, and still am unclear on the platforms of parties other than Conservatives as all of most of their talk was "Attack Harper" and of course, "Twist his words." I see all together too much of that from the opposition right now.

    This is the first debate I have watched in more elections than I can remember, and my response is that I won't be watching another one. It was the least informative way to learn about party platforms that I have seen. If you want to know what they are putting forward check out their web-sites and enjoy doing something else during the debate. It would certainly be a better use of time.

    The CONs platform among other things is PMSH term as PM. He is the PM of Canada, or did you forget that? He has his record, and his pledge for the future. Everyone else needs to come up with something better. And so far, I havn't seen anything that comes close.
