Michael Ignatieff Shows his True Character

June 18th, 2009

In his “showdown” (wasn’t it showdown who sang, “you p*ss me off, you f*&#in’ jerk, you get on my nerves”? That song makes a lot more sense now.) with Stephen Harper, Michael Ignatieff seems to have let slip his true nature: politician? nope; professor? nope; patriot? nope; Michael Ignatieff, it turns out, is all bureaucrat.

Back in May, Ignatieff was claiming EI must be fixed immediately, in order to help those who are losing their jobs now. So what did he settle on for a fix? A six-person panel, that will consider changes to EI. And if that doesn’t work, no doubt a sternly worded letter will follow.

How this helps people losing their jobs now, it seems unclear. Ignatieff’s demand was that the government should help people now, during the bad economy. The committee, however, will give advice on how to proceed then, when many experts believe the economy will be on the up-tick.  It takes the cold beatless heart of a true bureaucrat to square that circle, a heart that apparently Ignatieff possesses.
