How about “know your enemy”? An e-mail just received:
Dear Liberal Friend,
With this Conservative government, old habits die hard. Stephen Harper is back on familiar ground and announcing new attack ads aimed at the Liberal Leader while the economy slips farther into recession.
At a time when Canadians are worried about their jobs, their pensions and about putting their kids through school, the Conservatives are back with their old tricks in order to divert our attention from rising unemployment rates and the highest rate of job losses on record.
This Canadian Press story highlights familiar details: “Tories drop the gloves on Ignatieff, prepare attack ads”
This demands a response. Help us send a message that these blatant partisan attacks have no place in our government at a time of economic crisis. Canadians deserve better.
Your support is crucial. Please give what you can—every dollar counts.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
National Director, Liberal Party of Canada
