agrees with me that the Tories should not be using the adjective "unnecessary" and the noun "coalition" when discussing the election. I risk repetition here but today on day two of the campaign Harper gave a speech in Brampton Ontario and according to the Calgary Herald, The word coalition was used more than 20 times during the 10-minute talk, even though Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff on Saturday ruled out forming such a government.Now it turns out that even the right leaning Globe and Mail

And that's a criticism Mr. Ignatieff should level at his opponent. The hypocrisy of Harper having maneuvered towards something quite like a coalition back in 2004 when he was leader of the opposition has been properly picked up and noted by Canada's media because Mr. Duceppe waved it in their faces in a way they could not ignore -- and let me add a hearty thanks for that! That's a direct blow on Harper's integrity in the campaign's opening salvo. That's the kind of thing that could leave a mark or start a trend.
