Olivia Chow's magical power over the Liberals
At the top of The Star's front page today, you'll see Michael Ignatieff promising that Canada would get a child-care program regardless of the state of the nation's finances when/if he takes power.
"We will find the money," he said.
A few months ago, Ignatieff visited a day care centre in Ottawa and also underlined his commitment to child care, prompting this warning from the NDP's Olivia Chow.
"It's not just about money," NDP MP Olivia Chow said on Tuesday in reaction to the Liberal promise. "They've got to remove that condition – `if we have the money.' When there's a condition, and we've seen this, it doesn't happen."
So, there it is. Ms. Chow asked for the condition to be removed, and now it has been lifted. What will she ask for next, I wonder?
