Sharing the love
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May responded to questions Monday about why she is saying very nice things about Brent Fullard, the Liberal Candidate in Whitby-Oshawa.
In an e-mail sent to everyone on Fullard's distribution list, May said, "I cannot help myself!!! GOOD LUCK BRENT. You and Doug together can expose the massive incompetence of Mr. Flaherty."
Mr. Flaherty is, of course, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and the Conservative candidate in Whitby-Oshawa.
It was Flaherty who broke an election promise in 2006 and said the Harper government would tax income trusts.
Many Canadians lost money in the income trust decision and Fullard founded a group in protest.
May told reporters Monday that Doug Anderson is her candidate in Whitby-Oshawa and that she supports him.
Fullard, May said, is a friend and in the spirit of non-partisan respect and cooperation that she says Canadians would like to see in politics, she wishes him good luck.
