Stuff and free stuff too

Can someone please explain to our *new* government that, even though we are fighting the Taliban, we still hold ourselves accountable to international laws such as the Geneva Conventions, and that no amount of accusing critics of being traitors (which is essentially what Harper keeps doing) is going to change that?

Yep, and lifeboats are a little pricey too.

Thats pretty much the logic of this announcement from the Chin.

On second thought, I guess it doesn't exactly equate; it's never a certainty that you're going to need the lifeboats.

This loosely ties in with a brief association I made last week when Stephane Dion and Elizabeth May made their announcement. It reminded me of that moment at the leadership convention where Martha Hall Findlay threw her support behind Stephane. Now settle... I don't need a lecture on how totally unrelated those two events were, it was just some free association, Ok? May didn't exactly throw her support behind the Liberals, and yes, she is the leader of another party.

Saw this over at Warren Kinsella's blog... good stuff!

Why is this not surprising? The CPC is a party that seems to have trouble with their confidential documentation.

And this only proves to me that many Canadians haven't been given the chance to know more about Stephane Dion. I think when they do, they'll find they like him more than Harper, because Dion has no guile about him.

Wait a second now...

Jack Layton has critical words for the Tories?

I saw this link at the Daily Canuck and almost fell off my seat... could it be true? Perhaps Jack meant to criticise the Liberal party, but was confused or something.

So, now I hear that the opposition leaders are invited to go to Vimy, but Dion won't be going because of prior commitments? If that is the case, the I hope they're really important prior commitments, because they're going to cost him.

That's just my opinion. I could be wrong, but I think that the optics of not having our leader attend the ceremony commemorating one of the most important battles for Canada in WWI, not to mention the first Allied victory in WWI, would be pretty bad.

Hopefully I'm way wrong on this one.

Update: The Michael Ignatieff replacement works 'ok' I guess, considering the historical ties.
