Humble Dogs

That they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts. Matthew 13:15b

Hard to Stay Conservative

In principle, most Tory voters agree with bill C-38, but, it just may be to all encompassing to be comfortable with. What is creating some suspicion is that there are virtually no columnists writing in favor or defending the budget as written. Would it not be in the Tories best interest to break the budget up into appropriate segments? As it stands, few Canadians have any inkling of what the budget contains. 600+ pages is far too much to digest.
Is this the Harper thinking? A Tory voter is a Tory voter, just get it through in one big shot, we have three years to let any criticism fade and they will vote Tory again regardless. There is very good chance many can be persuaded not to vote Tory again.
Or are the Tories making one big offensive knowing that they are most likely to lose their majority come 2015? Their debate in the House is not helping them.
To make things worse, the out-right lies and innuendo coming from the likes of Levant and Adler, just add to the suspicion that maybe the critics on the left have a point. The budget is to large. Maybe there is some curious parts to this legislation that need more time and debate.
