ottawa is not a dirty word


Clearly, someone at Tory HQ thinks the “Ottawa NDP” thing will play well out west, huh?

That’s the most plausible explanation for yesterday’s curiously worded press release from the Little Shop of Tories yesterday  – which landed in reporters’ inboxes just as the Conservative campaign plane was landing in Saskatchewan, and why it then showed up later in Stephen Harper’s stump speech last night in Surrey, British Columbia, as noted by the CBC’s James Cudmore. In fact, Harper went a step further, excoriating the “Ottawa NDP” – along with the “Dion Liberals” for favouring “made-in-Ottawa solutions”.
