Ignatieff, succinctly summing up why the Liberals won’t support the Conservatives any more.
Canadian federal politics, September 2009. Nothing has changed and it is as predictable as ever. I’ll leave it to better writers and political commentators to disseminate all the details, but here is a quick rundown of what’s happened so far in ‘09.
