Ignatieff Says Liberals Won't Raise Taxes

Canada's Liberal Party leader Michael Ignatieff said yesterday a Liberal government would eliminate the federal deficit without raising taxes.

I now await Ignatieff's pledge to sell the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge which connects Ottawa with Hull, Quebec.

It must be remembered that back in December, Ignatieff would not rule out tax increases. Of course, at that time, he was not prepared to go to the polls.

While one might scoff at Ignatieff's promise the fact that he's making this promise clearly means he is in election mode on all eight cylinders and intends to bring down the Tory government of Stephen Harper.

The Tories should not count on support from either the NDP or the Bloc Quebecois.

Looks like Canada is headed for a fall election.

Canadians re-elected Stephen Harper to a second consecutive minority government in October 2008.
