The Conservatives have been throwing around the idea that Ignatief does not respect Canada because he lived and voted abroad.
Kind of odd logic considering 4 of our previous Prime Ministers were born abraod.
But I would rather have someone that lived abroad but respected Canada, than some one that would say to another nations political party (The US GOP) that:
“Canada is content to become a second-tier socialist country boasting ever more loudly about its economy and social services to mask its second-rate status. You won’t recognize Canada when I get through with it”. Harper 2005
That’s respect for you NOT !
