The Supreme Court Had Ruled … (but Citoyen Dion doesn't care)

When the highest court in the land makes a ruling, there isn’t a whole lot that can be done to change that ruling. The 9 member panel that is often divided on issues makes decisions regularly without a unanimous consensus. The whole reason for having an odd number of justices on the highest court of the land is to make sure there is not a tie on decisions.

Although a few weeks late, I came across some video which shows Stephane Dion disrespecting the Supreme Court’s decision on the constitutionality of the anti-terror measures which the Liberals voted against extending. (well, all Liberals present except Tom Wappell.)

Dion claims that the divided court means it is a contentious issue.

No Stephane. A divided court that has ruled means the decision is made and the majority wins.

Watch Citoyen Dion disrespect the Supreme Court by clicking the play button on the video below once.

    Dion is such a bad leader. First he votes against extending the anti-terrorism provisions saying that aren’t necessary now he’s talking about getting tough on crime?

    He sounds like a person that leads by the direction of the wind.

    There is very little that Dion or Liberals say that can be believed.

    Just the other day, my wife was telling me about a story where Ralph Goodale was complaining that Minister Skelton should have been in Ottawa to fix the computer glitch at revenue Canada. What a bunch of blowhards

    Basically, all the Liberals have been doing is nit-picking and whining. Harper himself commented a couple of months ago (in a rare analytical mood) that he expected the Libs to be more aggressive (in the House of Commons) and that if that aggression was consistently around a theme, it would be successful, but if it was scattered, it would eventually backfire on them. The Liberals can’t seem to unite around anything, except their hatred for Harper. Even Stephen Ledrew, ex president of the LPC, said that Dion needs to explain to Canadians WHY they should vote for him.
    Even backroomer Geoff Norquay helpfully suggested that the Libs need to stick to the same message, and repeat it over and over. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to see the mediocre Liberal ads during the campaign !

    He sounds like he learned everything he knows from Pauly and Johnny Crouton.

    Liberals don’t believe in democracy and besides they are the normal governing party: meaning they make policy even when somebody else is in power. Plus, it appears that liberal hacks on the supreme court were not sufficient in number to ram through the vote as he had hoped.

    Is St├ęphane Dion a flip-flopper?
    If enough Canadians believe he is, Dion stands to lose the next election. That’s what happened to John Kerry in the 2004 U.S. presidential election. The Republicans tarred him as a chronic flip-flopper, and the label stuck.
    George W. Bush can thank pollster Frank Luntz in part for bringing down Kerry, and Stephen Harper has turned to Luntz for advice on how to win his election. Time for some Kerry treatment on Dion.
    Harper has changed his mind more than a few times. Think of his about-faces on Kyoto and taxing investment trusts. But few in the media are calling him on it.
    CanWest picks up the beat
    Aping the role of Fox News as the main cheerleader for the Bush administration, the Asper family’s right-wing bully pulpit, the National Post, led the campaign against Dion. One editorial attacked Bill C-257. Liberal support for this bill, the Post hectored, “would mark another colossal flip flop of the St├ęphane Dion has become famous for.”
    A week later, Post columnist Don Martin assessed that Dion had a “lousy week.” Why? “Not once or twice, but three times in four days we saw Mr. Dion flip-flop.” The column was apparently considered vital reading for all Canadians, since it was reprinted in the Montreal Gazette, Vancouver Sun and Ottawa Citizen.
