Chretien? Really?

I am the only one who was surprised to see Chretien giving a speech for the Liberal party? Where did this come from? My guess is that this is a last-ditch attempt to rally some undecided voters since the NDP took the lead in the polls...or maybe trying to convince NDP supporters? I don't even know...

What I do know is that this is sad. If you're voting Liberal, you're not voting for Chretien...you're voting for Ignatieff.  This flashback is really nice and all, but lets remember the Liberal who IS running for PM. If Ignatieff is elected PM, do you think Chretien will be standing by to fight his battles for him? Doubtful...

Instead why not elect a leader who can stand up for the nation without relying on parties or leaders-past to back them up. I don't see Mulroney giving any speeches...

Once again, the choice is yours: Ignatieff-led coalition or...well you get the point.

  1. its true that you dont see Mulroney in the spotlight, but he was instrumental in the merger of the Progressive Conservatives and the Alliance, and he (despite a falling out over the Karlheinz Schreiber Affair) has been a key behind the scenes advisor to Stephen Harper and the Prime Minister's Office.

    the only reason Chretien is campaigning for the Liberals, is that they seek to remind Canadians of the economic stewardship of the 1990's (most of which were poached from Mulroney). They do fail to mention the tens of millions of dollars stolen from the treasury, which is why its not working.
