    Lana, Harper did not casue the economic crisis. Canada's banking system is one of the most soundest in the world. Stop looking for boogeymen under the bed to promote Jack Layton and the socialist vision of big brother who should provide a fully funded government pension. That is what TFSA's RRIF, and RRSPs are for. Start taking personal responsibility (remeber that?) for your own retirement because I am not paying for it.

    One thing we have all learned Lana is not to put as much faith in Jack Layton as you do. thats why he will NEVER be anything more than the washed up bottom feeding looser that he is. He like you has all the answers. Blame blame blame. Then again thats easy to do when you know you will never have to deal with any of this yourself. With a choice between Layton, Iggy, and Harper give me Harper any day thabk you very much. For someone with all the answers why dont you run for leadership of the NDP Lana. You certainly cant make the party any worse than it allready is.

    Graham, you have said it so well and so succinctly.
    There are a whole lot more of us who agree with you, than disagree. You hit the nail right on the head.

    And what a way for Ms. Payne to start off the New Year. Negativity personified. I wonder what it's like to live in a seemingly constant negative mindset and yet feel you have all the answers?

    As a refugee from Harris' Ontario, we can expect a lot harsher medicine from Harper and his gang. The working class is going to pay for the big business bailouts, while Graham (Gerry?) blames blames blames the victims while cowering behind the skirts of the privileged.

    Sounds like Harper et al's game is right on schedule. Not unlike the IMF blackmailing 3rd world countries into ending social programs in order to qualify for loans, the Harper gang, much like their neo-con brethren south of the 49th, argue fiscal responsibility and small government then make it, small government, a reality through their fiscal mis-management. If we keep on returning Reform - cum - Tory governments (minority or majority, apparently) the larder will be bared and the debt will be so high that cutting programs will seem like a logical step. Too bad that Canadians (especially those of us in the middle class) can't see beyond their own paycheck to see how this government's agenda is altering Canada's social fabric.

    But you will be paying for pensions for every political hack who hoodwinked the public into electing him/her for 2 terms, right? The biggest problem with our publically funded pension plan (well, it is actually user-funded) is how the plan has evolved into a fiefdom for it's over-paid and under-scrutinized bureaucrats.
