Disastrous policy? Who cares. Possible past-its-due-date scandal? Let's beat it to death!
Am I the only Canadian who really doesn't care much what Brian Mulroney might or might not have done with Karl-Heinz Schreiber? Am I the only person who thinks that most Canadians might not think this has much to do with the current Conservative-Alliance-Reform administration? Am I naive to think that the truth of the so-called "Cadman affair" will never be known, especially since he is no longer alive to tell his side of the story?
And even if the answer to those three questions is "yes", am I also wrong to think that perhaps the collective activity of the three opposition parties and the media would be better spent on engaging in a much more detailed critique of the policies that are being enacted by the current government as North America flirts with the onset of a recession, rather than hoping that one of the piddling events I referred to above might blow up into an election-worthy scandal?
(Clearly my frustration with the current state of Parliament has reached a tipping point this evening.)Recommend this Post
