Democracy Watch give "F" grade to Canada's Liberals

If the Liberals avoid defeat in Canada's general election next Monday (January 23), it will be an extraordinary comeback. The public bickering among opponents to Stephen Harper's Conservatives is a bad sign for Liberals and suggests that they are conducting what I guess we can call their pre-post-mortem.

The news [via Canada TV] that Democracy Watch has awarded a "B" for overall integrity and accountability to the front-running Tories in the election polls, compared with an "F" to the ironically named "Liberal" government, is a summary of why the election result deserves to be a change of régime.

Remember, Democracy Watch scored the parties on what they said they would do if elected. So anyone with an "F" for promises...
