You don't change unjust institutions by tidying them up.
- Tom Regan
So think about that next time you're talking about the Conservative sponsorship program vs. the Liberal sponsorship program. Or the Conservative condonation of the government's involvement in child care vs. the Liberal version. Or Conservative funding of "women's groups," "heritage sports," child care or seniors' tax benefits when compared to Liberal targeted spending.
The fact that spending is introduced by the Liberals instead of the Conservatives does not make it inherently bad - there is something fundamentally wrong with these programs that has nothing to do with to whom they're targeted or by which party they're implemented.
The fact that we're aiming for the right rather than the left doesn't change the fact that we're shooting the country in the foot.
