Ignatieff says he won’t seek a coalition if Liberals win minority

The Toronto Star reports today that, “In a bid to counter Tory attacks, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has declared he would not form a coalition with other opposition parties if he forms a minority government in the next election.”

“Ignatieff said Prime Minister Stephen Harper is once again warning – in private speeches and in television ads – that the Liberals are out to form another coalition with ‘the separatists and the socialists’ to scare people into giving him a majority government.”

“Last fall, the Conservatives successfully propelled a wave of popular anger against the Liberals who, under Dion, signed a coalition agreement with the NDP.”

“Ignatieff said he would work more cooperatively with the opposition parties than Harper has during his time as prime minister.”
