JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: CANADA’S ELECTION: A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE? THAT DOESN’T BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THE SITUATION   Leave a comment

JOHN CHUCKMAN

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY GEOFFREY ROWAN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

“What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate leadership vision”

The author clearly does not understand what this election is about.

Harper’s concept of an election is focusing on key “swing” ridings and using specific wedge issues in each in hopes of tipping enough to gain a slim majority.

No ideas, no inspiration, and no democratic values. Just a technical game to gain power.

Apart from that sad effort there is only dumb fear-mongering about things like separatism and coalitions offered the nation at large.

Ignatieff, in going after him, is like a cop in a squad car with flat tires.

The man does nothing but make sounds about new programs.

He is not even honest about dumb matters like the F-35 purchase. He doesn’t say we won’t buy it – which we certainly should not – but only that the process needs review, leaving people to believe maybe he will not buy the world’s costliest clunker.

He is totally ineffective in going after Harper’s own clear dishonesty and misrepresentation. Many of us know there are all kinds of quotes and films from Harper’s career which should be used against him. That is not attacking, that is reminding people of the truth.

But Ignatieff, the unelected leader of a once great party, is a lame excuse for an effective politician.
