The Iggy-Libs 'Have Put Nothing On The Table' For Canadians
""He's put absolutely nothing on the table. It's just empty rhetoric," a top Liberal who supported Mr. Ignatieff (Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Ont.) in both of his leadership campaigns told The Hill Times last week. "It's not enough to say, 'That in good times we're going to bring forward the progress...' If he goes into an election and doesn't really have anything substantive to put on the table, we're looking at a massacre."
Throughout the summer months, the Liberal Party and the Conservative Party ran neck and neck in public opinion polls and, in some cases, Liberals were even slightly ahead of the Conservatives.
An Angus-Reid online poll released last week showed that the Conservatives were leading the pack with 36 per cent support followed by the Liberals with 29 per cent, the NDP 17 per cent, the Bloc 10 per cent and the Green Party seven per cent. This poll showed that 58 per cent of Canadians oppose forcing an election while 31 per cent support it. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 per cent 19 times out of 20."
