In the Commons, the normally astute Human Resources Minister Monte Solberg went to the Tories’ first line of defence, attacking the Liberals for their cuts to students in the past.
This is an increasingly disheartening and pointless strategy, boring and dishonest. The Tories are the government, and they cut many fine groups that the Liberals funded for years. Blame the Liberals for that? Are the Tories smoking crack? Do they think anyone listening is stupid enough to swallow that? They insult their own intelligence by trying to peddle such rotten baloney.

Well, the Queen's Park media seem to like the taste of it.
