Irony Is Officially Dead

When the man who ran on a platform of improving government transparency and accountability is refusing to be accountable for billions of dollars of taxpayer money, irony has died.

The Liberal Leader says he will not support creation of a special immediate-stimulus fund unless Prime Minister Stephen Harper agrees to provide some accountability for how the money is spent.

Mr. Harper has warned that the special fund is a matter of confidence and opposition parties will find themselves in an election if they won't support it.

Really, Stephen, is it that difficult to actually live up to the promises you made to Canadians in 2006? Why is it hard for you to actually tell Canadians where that money is going, and how it will be used? Or is it going straight into the pockets of your sponsors and you just don't want to admit to that?
