It looks increasingly like Paul Martin's Liberals are selling taxpayer's money to stay in power.
Nothing new, of course. But what makes this situation unique is how overtly desperate the government looks.
Today, Martin announced aid for Dafur. Martin is trying to woo Kilgour to back his government. At a cost of 170 million dollars!
But is this any different than Sri Lanka? Martin promised the world to Sri Lanka months ago. But as this story says, none of that money has arrived.
They lied to the Sri Lankans, Bono, and who else?
