Day denies report of 2000 coalition plot with Bloc
According to CBC report linked to above:
Federal Trade Minister (of the Government in Hiding-kc) Stockwell Day denied on Wednesday he was aware of a secret plan in 2000 for him to take power through a formal coalition between the Bloc Québécois, the Canadian Alliance and the Progressive Conservatives
In spite of the fact Gilles Duceppe was holding the document in hand while questioning the member from
.....the report was a "complete fabrication" and that he had never seen the letter, never endorsed it and would never sign such a deal.
"It would be against my very DNA to do a coalition deal with socialists, and it would absolutely go against my heart and the heart of Canadians to do a deal with separatists," Day told the House on Wednesday, in reference to the current proposed coalition.
The shocking disclosure wasn't that, like his evolutionary successor, St. Stephen Harper in 2004, he was willing to entertain the notion of "crawling into bed with the evil socialists or separatists," for the privilege of sitting in the Big Chair in the now defunct House of Parliament. No, it was the fact that he acknowledged SCIENCE and the fact that he actually contains DNA. I'm pretty certain St. Stephen will be on the phone as soon as he finishes locking up all the doors to the Parliament Building and arranging with Bekins to ship the Big Chair home to Calgary. This could be an early sign of a split in the upper echelon of the PsuedoCon Theocracy.
Meanwhile back in 2000:
....in July 2000, Day indicated a willingness to form political ties with the Bloc if it meant ousting the federal Liberals from power. He said his party's position was "to be open to anybody who's interested in a truly conservative form of government.''
"I'm not big on labels," Day told reporters at the time when asked about a possible coalition to oust Chrétien's Liberals.
"If there are people who embrace the views of the Canadian Alliance and believe we need a federal government that is limited in size, that respects the provinces and that wants lower taxes, I'm not interested where they may have been in the past politically.
I know I will be able to understand how this doesn't mean that Minister Day was......well.......LYING, in Parliament yesterday. I'm just kinda slow at understanding this deep philosophical theorizing engaged in by members of the Party that had pet dinosaurs when they were children.
I really want to love St. Stephen and his Government in Hiding, and Doris, and the Pit Bull Baird, because......well, it appears I don't have a choice!
