Do we want this man leading our country?

Michael Ignatieff, on the "orders of government" (meaning Federal, Provincial, Regional, Municipal):

"Together, they need to negotiate a transparent, rational and long-term fiscal relationship that accurately considers the true fiscal capacity of every order of governmnet and then arrives at an agreement that recalibrates federal transfers and equalization to facilitate the realization of identified national goals and to ensure that less well off provinces can provide for their citizens without damaging the capacity of wealthier provinces to serve the needs of theirs."

Yes, that's one sentence. Yes, I typed it in, reading it from Macleans (Sept. 4, 2006). Yes, my fingers do hurt.

It's not that I disagree with the statement. I simply do not want to read sentences that long.

Please, Liberal Party, choose someone who's less wordy.

I would far rather that someone capable of writing such a sentence be our Prime Minister than someone who is incapable of reading or writing such a sentence.

It's completely intelligible, and makes a very valid point.
