Fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool me...you can't get fooled again
"I don't have confidence in him to chair the board of Via Rail," Transport Minister Jean Lapierre said Tuesday following a cabinet meeting.
Or...Lapierre won't have confidence in Pelletier after he gets proper notice. My head is just spinning with all the delayed confidence motions we're seeing in Ottawa these days.
I'll be very curious to see if the voters of Outremont have confidence in Mr. Lapierre following the next election...
2. On a similar note, when did Scott Brison go from bright political star to buffoon? Every day, it's a new mishap with him. A few months ago Brison was seen as a rising star in the Liberal party and one of Paul's best Cabinet Ministers. These days? Uhh...not so much.
3. Dan McTeague wants 50 cent to be banned from Canada. Personally, I'd like to see Dan McTeague banned from Canada.
4. Just so that I don't throw up four anti-Liberal points tonight, what exactly would people like Paul Martin to do on the softwood lumber file? More specifically, what would a Stephen Harper government do that the Liberals haven't done? And please don't tell me this is payback for anti-Americanism in the Liberal Party because I don't buy it.
Here's my prediction:
Today: Opposition leaders blame Liberals for not helping workers hurt by softwood tariffs.
Friday: Opposition leaders attack Liberals for "buying votes" with their aid package for workers hurt by softwood tariffs.
