UPDATE – MARCH 26, 2011:  Ignatieff Will Crumble Because Canada’s Economy Is The Envy Of The World

UPDATE – MAY 2, 2011 10:42 PM EST … CTV Calls Conservative Majority 18 Minutes Before 0:00:00:00 … Sorry I Was Off By 18 Minutes :-)

Michael Ignatieff, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, has forced Canada into yet another election – our 4th in 7 years. He led opposition parties in toppling Canada’s Conservative Party government by passing a “non-confidence” motion on March 25th, after rejecting a March 22nd budget on the grounds the Conservative Government mismanaged the economy.

Except for 156 members of Parliament on Friday, few if any other Canadians agreed with Ignatieff et al.  Even staunch Liberal supporting friends of mine are quite pleased with the Conservative Party’s handling of the economy in a financial crisis riddled world where the United States, the U.K. and Europe are running too cold, while China runs too hot.

Our economy and our banks are the envy of the entire world. More than just lip service, the following excerpt is from Business Week:

Canada’s economy is the fastest growing with the lowest deficits among Group of Seven nations. The currency has been the strongest in the G-7 over the past two years. Government bonds have returned 5.1 percent over the past year as of March 24, compared with a 3.1 percent average for the G-7. Canada’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index has risen 17.4 percent over the past 12 months, compared with a 12.6 percent gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Yet, Ignatieff et al want Canadians to believe they could have somehow done it better.  To prove it, they are willing to see Canada without a government for 36 days and have taxpayers pay over $300 million for an election they don’t want.

Short of a catastrophic, unforeseen political event, Ignatieff is guaranteed to lose as things stand now and may even hand the Conservatives a majority government in the process.

Stay tuned for further updates and looking forward to your comments.
