Today's Dionspeak

Question:
Monsieur Dion, Mr. Harper said you have taken an extremist position on the anti-terror provision. How do you respond?

Stéphane Dion:
And then I understand that the clear majority of the House of Commons of Canada is extremist? No. Come on! I think Mr. Harper is trying to scare the people in order to create conditions for an election, but it will not work. People will understand that he is doing that for partisan reasons. We had a difficult issue to solve. It is always difficult to know how can we be very very strong and strong against terrorism and at the same time, to protect human rights.
This decision has been made and it is for the government to come back with a holistic approach to come with changes. The Senate requested 40 changes. So it is for the government to do its homework and to stop to play politics with the security of Canadians.
