Liberal Leader Stephane Dion levelled a zinger at Stephen Harper today as he questioned why the Conservatives have yet to release their platform, with the campaign soon to hit its final week.
"The mail from Australia is very slow to come," Dion told supporters during a rally Saturday morning in Moncton, N.B.
That's a biting reference to the revelation this week that sections of speech that Harper gave in 2003 had been plagiarized from a speech then Australian Prime Minister John Howard delivered just a few days earlier. A senior Conservative policy advisor says he was responsible for the speech and has resigned.
Meanwhile, Harper is promising to reveal his party's election platform next week, perhaps on Tuesday.
