Then Why Did You Sign The Agreement Iggy?

From the Globe and Mail: Coalition would have deeply divided Canadians: Ignatieff

“I'm in politics to unify people, not to divide them,” Mr. Ignatieff said.

“There was also a question concerning the legitimacy of the coalition that troubled me.”

The power sharing deal between the Liberals and New Democrats, with support from the Bloc Quebecois, was not undemocratic, Mr. Ignatieff told the crowd of some 150 Montrealers gathered in a downtown theatre, but it would nonetheless have given Canadians the feeling that the parties had “in some sense or another stolen power.”

In their report the Globe and Mail failed to mention that Iggy put his signature on the Coalition agreement. It really doesn't matter what he thought, if he signed on supporting it. If he had questions, and doubts, it shows that he didn't have the courage of his convictions to stand up at the time, against it. Seems he's getting a free pass from the press about it.
