Charest and the Quebec Liberals are shameless. Harper's comments and reasons for calling the recent Federal election are already fresh in everyone's memory! Charest may not follow Harper word for word just excuse for excuse.
Mr. Charest is said to have stood his ground, insisting that the campaign would underscore the opposition parties' lack of experience and credibility to manage the economy and that he alone was best equipped to lead the province through the economic storm.....
Mr. Charest's comments appeared to indicate that he had already made up his mind. He insisted that in times of economic hardship, the province would be better off with a steady hand at the helm, suggesting that a majority government is needed.
“It seems clear enough when you're in an [economic] situation like this, and you are in a minority, that means there are three pairs of hands on the steering wheel,” Mr. Charest said in Mirabel while attending an announcement by Pratt & Whitney to build a $575-million engine plant that will create 565 direct jobs. “What I saw on the weekend was that the other two opposition leaders do not want to go in the same direction as the government on the economic question.”
