Can anyone out there name a single new, newsworthy piece of policy put forward by the Martin government during their first year in power? With the exception of whistleblower legislation which was to minimize the adscam fallout, I believe this latest push to ban trans fats (at the NDP's urging) might be the first real policy Martin is pushing forward on.
Which begs the question:
Was this the great policy difference between Jean Chretien and Paul Martin which forced a coup d'etat? Fast Food? Do the "Politics of achievement" come down to McCain French Fries?
