The other day Phil was talking to his boss. He asked his boss to give him credit for doing a good job on a project. The boss responded that the project had been completed before Phil was even hired.
That's basically how the Chamber of Commerce all-candidates debate went down on Wednesday. Phil tried to take credit for funding a new water treatment facility in Ohsweken. Well we here at DumpPhil.ca were naturally suspicious of this claim, so we did a little digging and found this press release:
The funding was ANNOUNCED IN 2005, THREE MONTHS before Stephen Harper became Prime Minister, and a solid THREE YEARS before Phil even came into office. Lyin' Phil is tryin' to take credit for other people's work!
So unless Phil has a time machine in his office, there is no way that he or his government were responsible for the treatment plant.
The worst part is that Phil has been telling this lie for years, even though people called him on it long ago.
