Yesterday in the House

May. 28th, 2009 at 4:40 PM

This exchange happened yesterday in the House between Harper and Ignatieff:

Mr. Michael Ignatieff (Leader of the Opposition, Lib.):
Mr. Speaker, the issue here is the credibility of the Government of Canada and the credibility of the Minister of Finance. Just five weeks ago, the Minister of Finance said, and I quote, “I'm comfortable with our projections... We're on track”. We are on track to where? The largest deficit in Canadian history. Canadians just cannot trust the government with their money. Will the Prime Minister fire the Minister of Finance?

Right Hon. Stephen Harper (Prime Minister, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, what is at issue here is the credibility of the Leader of the Opposition, who has been here week after week demanding not just that the government spend more but that it spend more permanently. Now he tries to pretend he is concerned about the deficit. I cannot fire the Leader of the Opposition, and with all the tapes I have on him, I do not want to.

Today, Scott Andrews was pretty hilarious about it:

Mr. Scott Andrews (Avalon, Lib.):
Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Prime Minister admitted to the House that he is spending hours holed up in his basement, going through old tapes that he has collected on the Leader of the Opposition.

We knew the government was a bit shaky when it came to scientific novelties like the greenhouse effect and the theory of evolution, but who knew they missed the digital revolution as well.

The Prime Minister seems to be stuck in another political era. Who does the Prime Minister think he is, Richard Nixon?

What are these tapes the Prime Minister is talking about? Is he bugging the phone lines again, just like when they eavesdropped on the NDP? Are there microphones in our offices and cameras in the potted plants?

It is time for the Prime Minister to wake up, throw away his little spy cameras and start focusing on the mess that he and his government have made to this economy or else he may be remembered in political history as fondly as Richard Nixon.
