Thomas Mulcair and the NDP have a love for things all blacked out, making them a total roadblock to democracy. Imagine if Kevin Page, like the NDP, was simply willing to accept the things that the Harper government said based on merely being “ confident that government estimates of future tax leakage are solid”, as the letter from NDP MP Denise Savoie in a letter to a concerned constituent reads below?
In my conversation with Mulcair today he demonstrated that he knows nothing about finance, but professed to know a great deal about the law. If so perhaps he could describe for us the legal concept of “False reliance", and whether this excuse for representing the concerns of a constituent is anything other than a case of false reliance. False reliance by the constituent on the NDP MP Denise Savoie and false reliance by Denise Savoie on Judy W-L, and false reliance by Judy W-L on Jim Flaherty:
The NDP are an exercise in False reliance from one end of the chain to the other. This constituent may as well as have been talking to Flaherty about tax leakage. The NDP’s value added is zero. They contribute nothing to the process, except the false expectation on the part of this constituent that they actually did something apart from taking Flaherty’s word, which means their value added is actually negative because the constituent will have imbued the NDP’s answer with assumed value added that just isn’t there.
What a farce of a process. What a farce of a party. Imagine if Kevin Page, Canada's Parliamentary Budget Officer were just a poodle for the Harper Cons the way the NDP have proven themselves to be? He'd be completely useless and redundant, just like Thomas Mulcair has decided to do for himself and his nonsense party, the easily fooled NDP.
NDP MP Denise Savoie in a letter to a concerned constituent:
“I have asked Judy Wasylycia-Leis to investigate a number of concerns. I am confident in supporting her position on this matter: “I am confident that government estimates of future tax leakage are solid”"
