Blame the peo­ple

Re: Lib­er­als Launch The ‘ NotOur- Fault’ De­fence, An­drew Coyne, Feb. 23.

Though there is the per­pet­ual game of blam­ing the pre­vi­ous govern­ment for the mess that has be­fallen the coun­try, it seems it is the right of the peo­ple to al­ways de­mand more. Per­haps it is the peo­ple who are the prob­lem. Though the Con­ser­va­tives started out with grand ideas of re­straint and re­spon­si­bil­ity, wails of fury rapidly ef­fected change, es­pe­cially as economies slumped around the world. That Canada sur­vived, and showed im­prove­ment, is a mea­sure of Con­ser­va­tive suc­cess. But as the peo­ple in­vari­ably want more, and the econ­omy is again weak, a hedge against Lib­eral fail­ure, is the al­leged atroc­ity of the past.
