It seems though that Mr. Pearson is now somewhat uncomfortable that Liz stands by her comments that condemn Prime Minister Stephen Harper's stance on climate change, comparing it to "a grievance worse than Neville Chamberlain's appeasement of the Nazis."
A spokesman for the Prime Minister is asking for the slur to be retracted, adding that May is becoming Dion's puppet; doing the dirty work for him. (Imagine a leadership debate with Liz on board!)
Mr. Pearson is now trying to distance himself with the Godwin-like remarks:
"Canadians need to get more serious about it, but the whole link to the Nazis over that went beyond the pale, for me.
Better be careful, Stephane. Your cute little sock-puppet seems to be morphing into a very scary marionette with a will of her own.
