Ignatieff Heads West

For a lowly University professor, the guy sure does get around. I've had several readers e-mail in Michael Ignatieff sightings which I thought I'd pass on.

1. A few weekends back, he hit the Saskatchewan Liberal Party convention.

2. He was speaking in Toronto earlier this week, on Canada-US relations.

3. Next week, he will be doing a youth fundraiser in Calgary. Mostly out of curiosity, I've already bought my ticket.

4. Rumour has it that he'll be hitting the federal Liberal convention in British Columbia Grey Cup weekend.


While I think it's a little premature to talk about him for leadership (even Trudeau made a name for himself in Justice first), I do hope he decides to run at some point since he would certainly bring a lot to Parliament.

  • So will this gentleman be another resounding success that Paul Martin has been?

  • I tend to agree with your post - it'll be interesting to see how he does in Cabinet. It'll certainly be beneficial, I think, to have a politician again who thinks in terms of grand ideas, not just short-term, public-endearing policies and gimmicks.

  • I am not interested in any federal Liberal politicians unless they are committed to a positive vision for Western Canada. Any potential leadership candidate who does not fit this bill can go to h***.

  • Pierre Pettigrew is the only guy in the Liberal Party that can actually thread together ideas and deliver them with passion. Too bad the PM takes his role as Foreign Minister all the time. Pettigrew can inspire.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:59 PM  

  • Are you kidding? I have been so totally uninspired by Pettigrew throughout his career - should've kept Bill Graham in Foreign Affairs. Besides, I've heard that he's thinking of leaving politics shortly - his seat isn't even safe.

    Ignatieff's "grand" ideas:

    1. The invasion of Iraq was necessary.

    2. Torture of America prisoners is also necessary.

    You sure you want these ideas in the Liberal Party?

  • Just wanted to let you know that I dropped by, after finding you on a Google search for blogs about Calgary. I go there 2 or 3 times a year on business and always enjoy my time there. Will drop by from time to time and learn more about a city I'm enjoying!

  • "Ignatieff's "grand" ideas:

    Of course, that is exactly why the man is back in Canada. He has no credibility left in the U.S., so he returned home to peddle his goods to fellow colonials.

  • Ignatieff is very interesting -- have seen the man lecture twice (once at the AY1999/2000 Tanner lectures at Princeton, once at a synogogue in TO, introduced by his old university apartmentmate, Bob Rae).

    He's wobbly on his policy ideas in a way that Paul Martin has been -- he almost withdrew his support for the Iraq war after the Abu Ghraib revelations -- but he's intellectually honest enough to take on his opponents openly and publicly.

    I wonder, though -- do foreign policy thoughts like his have a place in the Liberal Party, or among a majority of Canadians? I really doubt it.

    By Blogger The Tiger, at 9:46 AM  

  • Don Mitchell wonders if he will be the success Martin has been .....

    Sure he will. If he has his people take over the party - provincial bodies, constituencies, nomination committees ...

    We need to be careful not to crown him before we review his capabilities and those of his support circle.

  • This guy can't win the leadership race this time. He has lived outside of Canada for most of the past 30 years. He's an expert on stuff that most Canadians don't give a shit about. Unless he runs in this election and gets into cabinet, he won't go far. He has Alf Apps running his campaign from Toronto, and Grit's know Alf's track record.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:01 PM  

  • Are you saying that Canadians "don't give a shit about" human rights issues? Because that is Ignatieff's specialty, he's written on it extensively (see his 2004 The Lesser Evil: Political Ethics in an Age of Terror. The notion you raise here is out of touch, IMO.

    Also, for anybody who plans on visiting Halifax this coming March, Ignatieff will be a keynote speaker at Dalhousie's Graduate Symposium.

    Richard, that is precisely what I'm saying. Go ahead and take a poll of Canadians and ask them to rate or rank a list of the most important issues, I would wager that anything foreign affairs related would rank near the bottom of most of those lists. Let's hear Ignatieff comment on urban transit in our major cities, or problems on the prairie farm, not torture in far away lands 90% of us will never visit. I saw his speech in Ottawa at LPC; he's certainly an impressive intellectual. Unlike Trudeau, his intellectual curiosity revolves around topics that don’t win elections in Canada, no matter how important his ideas are with the "book-smarts set". He's an expert in areas that not 1 in 20 ordinary Canadians ever think about once in any given week.

    Like I said, if he got into cabinet and proved himself able, he could have a chance. But for a guy who has lectured for the better part of three decades outside of Canada on topics that are inconsequential to the daily lives most Canadians, he’s got a lot of balls, thinking his resume will make him a contender. How absurd.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:49 PM  

  • Perhaps that is EXACTLY what is needed. Say what you will about Trudeau, but he had a VISION for Canada, and he sold that vision ot the people. Anyone can govern on what the people find important at the time (here's a hint: it is, was, and always will be health care). You are probably right that most Canadians don't know and don't care about Human Rights, but perhaps they SHOULD. If you asked Canadians 25 years ago whether or not they cared if their constitution was here or in Britain, and whether it contained a Charter or not, most of them would have not cared. I mean, constitutional politics? Show me one in twenty canadians who find THAT important. Yet today 91% of Canadians support the Charter. That's pretty amazing, and we wouldn't have had it without the vision of a Prime Minister on how this country SHOULD be rather than how it IS. I am not saying Ignatief is good or bad, but if he can get Canadians interested in something other than themselves it will probably make for a better Canada and a better world.

  • I think you're rewriting the history of the Charter. Trudeau introduced the Charter, but people saw what it was and gravitated towards it immediately. During the time of its passage, it came to be known as the "People's Charter".

    In fact, the elites were against it (people like Michael Bliss) -- it was average Canadians who embraced. They "gave a shit" about it.

    Trudeau understood global issues. But he also deeply, deeply understood Canadian society. Like Laurier, he came out of the rouge tradition in Quebec, with the added strength of being bicultural (his mother was English).

    Honestly, Ignatieff does not understand Canada. He has learned his lessons in Britain and the United States. You can't apply those lessons to a unique place like Canada (which is why neo-conservatism continually fails). The Liberal Party will make a mistake if they give him any power.

    By Blogger Simon Pole, at 6:45 PM  

  • "But he [Trudeau] also deeply, deeply understood Canadian society."

    Sure - if you define "Canadian society" as Montreal, with periodic visits to Ottawa and Toronto to learn about les Anglais. Despite 'Trudeaumania' - which was fundamentally and appeal to youth and image - Trudeau no more understood (or was understood by) Canadians outside the chardonnay and brie set than an Australian bushman.

    By Blogger deaner, at 7:18 PM  

  • Did you know that Trudeau's mother was one of les Anglais?

    Are you an Australian bushman?

    By Blogger Simon Pole, at 8:19 PM  

  • Yes
    No

    By Blogger deaner, at 8:27 PM  

  • Trudeau's legacy was only saved by him winning in 1980 and then repatriating the Constitution. His stewardship from 1968-1979 was abysmal, a lost decade.

    Even the Charter, though many blindly profess their love for it, is lacking. The notwithstanding clause, and all the "except in the case of ..." clauses make it almost a useless document.

    And Trudeau didn't understand global issues. His Peace tour was an absolute joke, just a reason to slag Reagan and Thatcher. On most of the defining issues in the world during his time in office, he had an amazing record for coming down on the wrong side of history for most of them.

    But the (fake) legend of Trudeau is already firmly ensconced in the national psyche.

    RE: Rampant Public Corruption in Canada and the USA
    Hey,
    Now that Paul Martin has finally set the date for his confidence vote, methinks its time to pack my bags and head for home. I must raise some serious political hell in the Maritimes before the Commonwealth of Massachusetts does its worst to bankrupt my wife and put my kids on the street before I can expose the rampant public corruption. This is also a very good day to prove within the USA that we are well aware of each other and of my concerns and allegations in order to stress test the integrity of the US Mail. It and the Canada Post have failed me big time in recent years particularly just before the Yankees falsely imprisoned me last year for the benefit of George W. Bush, John Kerry and Paul Martin to name a few. I have no doubt whatsoever each of you dudes know more about me than I do about you. However that does not mean that I have not studied each of you a lot more than the ordinary layman. Just so we are clear, I have no respect for any of you. I know that all of you are as crooked as Chief Mearn, his cops and the lawyers who are coming into our home tomorrow without a warrant. This mail should prove your malice and willingness to support crime and public corruption.
    Pursuant to my many emails, phone calls and faxes etc., you will find enclosed as promised exactly the same material I served upon the Solicitor Generals Teddy Olson and landslide Annie McLellan last year before I ran for Parliament last year. The CD of the copy of wiretap tape # 139 is served upon you as officers of the court and FBI Agents in order that it may be properly investigated. Franky got this stuff and more last year. The FBI got even more the year before. Perhaps they should go find the original tapes that the Suffolk County District Attorney and Special Agent in Charge Ken Kaiser have been playing dumb about for far too long. This material was good enough to impeach George W. Bush last year and cause many people to quit or lose their jobs. It is every bit as valuable today and you all know it. Ask the many people whose names can be found within these documents or Franky Boy or Claude Richer, Allan Rock’s lawyer buddy in the RCMP about this stuff before you call me a liar. As you all know I am out of jail on bail pending my upcoming criminal trial in front of a jury of my peers. I have the right to remain silent in the USA. I will employ different rights in Canada and say a lot.
    What I choose to say while stumping for a seat in Parliament in Canada is of my concern not yours. If you dudes do your jobs here and I act ethically and legally up home with luck the world will be far better off in short order. I have already checked the rules with the people working for Elections Canada. We agree it is perfectly legal for an innocent man to run for Parliament while being prosecuted with false charges in the wrong jurisdiction and venue in the USA. Everybody knows I can secure my personal freedom quicker in a political forum in Canada rather than argue crooked judges in the USA. They have already imprisoned me on bullshit charges without even reading me my rights or telling me why I was in jail. The crooks are not going to have a sudden fit of ethical behavior now without it becoming a matter of political will. We all know it is high time for a change, the sooner the better for the Maritimes as well as the rest of the world. What better politician to argue with than a right wing lawyer named Rob Moore?
    As you all no doubt know I have been talking to many people within the UN and have sent many much of my stuff. You all must have laughed as hard as I did when the Cubans were afraid to talk about my stuff. I must agree with George Bush about one thing. The UN is certainly in need of an overhaul. Yet we all know that nasty dudes like Maurice Strong’s buddy, Paul A. Volcker, the Former North American Chairman of the Trilateral Commission and Karl Rove’s puppet, John Bolton are just going to make matters worse. The same holds true with the turncoat Robert C. Pozen. He now offers advice to Bush on how to fix Social Security simply because I sent him running for cover with my Putnam Investment concerns and the malevolent media control of Global Corporations. Feel free to argue me or act ethically. You choose. I don’t care. Franky Boy knows he is way past too late. I am just rubbing his nose it before I talk a lot about him and his failure to uphold the public trust in our old stomping grounds up home. I can’t help but wonder how he explained his “Harper is a lapdog for Bush” dogma to Karl Rove and his nasty cohorts. I suspect it was an allowed comment from an insider of the Carlyle Group. Don’t you? We all know Stephen Harper would never fit in that group. He is as dumb as a post. All of his successes playing at politicking have just been a matter of luck and playing on the PC and Liberal scandals. Harper is kinda scary to me. He has a truly awful agenda in store for all Canadians like evil old T. Alex Hickman and Johnny Crosbie did for our Newfys.
    Sometimes less is more. So in conclusion I will just quote former Inspector General of the DHS Clark Kent Irwin and simply say it would have benefited all if he had taken his own advice way back in November of 2003 when he had an important job.
    POGO: “Any advice for your fellow public servants?”
    Irwin: “Well, just do your job and let the political chips fall where they may. Unless you’re willing to do that, it seems to me you shouldn’t take the job in the first place.”
    What say you?
    Cya’ll in Court

    I know Petey Baby MacKay don't love me so there is no sense in wasting my dime calling him. Hell he has refused to answer my letters or call me back even after Belinda Baby dumped him, so I do not expect him to do the right thing as Minister of Foreign Affairs other than to accept nasty little Franky Boy McKenna's resignation ASAP. Tell me is Franky Boy entitled to severance pay like his fellow Malawyer ritime buddy Dingwall is? Whereas the liberals Wayne Easter and Landslide Annie refused to protect my dumb arse over the years in their capacity as Solicitor General/Minister of Public Safety. I guess I should be fair and allow it Mr. Day's to try to act ethically on my behalf for a day or so, before I sue the Crown. EH?
    Rest assured that I ain't holding my breath waiting for Mr. Day to call me back. Like many of the rest of you Stockwell Day has known of my troubles ever since Harper was elected as his latest boss in 2004 when he sat in the 37th Parliament
    In the meantime in answer to Andrew Kyrstal's very dumb question on the radio just now.,methinks I should inform the NHL dudes that are being prosecuted by corrupt Yankees how I can help them.I know andrew Kystral and all the Rogers dudes never will. What the New Jersey Dudes are up to right now is merely a case of the big bad pot calling a minor little kettle black to me and Andrew Kyrtal know it too. Just like the Lord Conrad Black versus FitzGerald matter in Chicago everybody is trying to play dumb and it was to funny that Peter C. Newman apologized after i sent his lawyers some of my stuff..
    Tell me something honestly if any you can find it in your soul to do so. Do you really think that the Conservatives thought that I didn't notice that Mulroney's right hand man Dereck Burney set up your Cabinet or that Michael Fortier was not a partner in his law firm?

    Yet you apologize and shake Arar's hand when you are questioned about your incompetence? Unlike Arar I am a Proud natural born Canadian citizen but it seems that the Maritimes don't count for much in a Uppper Canadain lawyers view of the world EH? Arar still is a citizen of Syria as far as I know. Why was it Canada's fault that the Yankee's snatched him in the USA and sent him to where he was born. The Yankees won't do that for me. they wanted to ship me off to Cuba instead simply because i caught Tax Men and Bankers with their pants down.
    The the corrupt UN blames Canada for dropping the ball and not defending Arar's human rights. Yet the snotty little lawyer from McGill Stephen Toope who used to work with Cotler and now works with the UN for us and the Arar Inquiry as well says he does not care about my troubles because I did not allow the Yankees to make me dissappear?
    I try to talk to any of the latest elected Members of Parliament and I am awayys refered to Peter Milliken's office and we all know why he will not talk to me. I just watched you and Landslide Annie piss an moan about Harper to all Canadains today on CTV and Layton is on right now. You people make me sick with laughter at the nonsense of it all. I tried to talk to you but your assistant hung up on me when I called you not long after polling day. Why is an Upper Canadain political lawyer too chicken to talk to a pigneaded Maritimer one on one? I did tell you assistant that I knew about you asking Cotler to investigate Byron Priors troubles. What the matter with you own sense of integrity. Can't you pick up the god damned phone? I guess not but someday you will have to answer a summons EH? Cya'll in Court Billy Boy.

    Everybody just played dumb as usual. Ask me if I was surprised I Double Dog Dare Ya particularly after Spectre and his fellow GOP cronies refused to allow Alberto Gonzales to be sworn in. Looks like I am going it alone in the pursuit of justice as usual too. In all sincerity I prefer it that way. After all of the people I have crossed paths with over the years, I truly would be crazy to expect integrity and ethical conduct from a lawyer, politician or public servant. I am certain the fellow whistleblower Allan Cutler would agree if he had had enough sand to call me back before he lost his bid for a seat in the upcoming evil 39th Parliament. Now that Humpty Dumpty has suffered his great fall. Harper is sitting in his perch. This is wickedly fun. EH?

    After Stevey Boy Harper gets sworn in I will call Washington to see if Spectre got the wiretap tapes and then start forwarding this email everywhere. In an ethical effort to impeach Bush and his lapdog Harper myself.
    What did Lamrock, Burke, Murphy, McGuinley and you think of the copy of # 139? Scared the shit out of you EH? Whereas you little local liberal lawyers would not help me unseat Premier Lord and stop Stevey Boy Harper in h9s tracks i will through in the same lawsuits with him. It is hard to get good help these days. The word integrity does not fit in the job discription of a lawyer or a Parliamentian. EH?
    The fact that Emerson just crossed the floor and the Dastardly Dave Dingwall story broke yesterday kinda sends your wicked little party down the tubes EH? From my point of view it looks good on you dudes. Say Hey to Franky Boy McKenna for me will ya? I hope to argue you all very soon in court.

    Subject: Re: The wiretap tapes

    On the subject of the wiretap tapes please send them to Specter at the following address ASAP. I called him and the other Senators on the Judiciary Commitee and told them to expect them from you and the ADA McDonnell weeks ago. Everyone of them who is a lawyer received a copy of wiretap tape # 139 back in 2003 and many have answered me improperly. The most notable being Teddy Kennedy and the long gone Johnny Edwards. You should also inform them that the ADA McDonnell has nine more in her possession and has been attempting to pretend that she does not have them. You should withdraw from the Dorchester District Court matter as my attorney and become my witness once again against the malicious prosecution of me about the false allegations and the Troccoli emails.
    It would be nice before you withdraw for you to demand that I finally receive proper two head recordings of all of my hearings in the matter and hard copy of the purported warrant for my arrest. Judge Hanlon ordered the clerk to provide me with the tapes and attested copies of all filings for free on Oct 19th, 2004. To date I only received one largely erased four head tape late in April of 2005 immediately before Hanlon and McDonnell tried hard to put me back in jail with the illegal motion she sprang upon me on April 28th. That was long before they threw Jean out of her home. I have yet to receive any notice of the Appeall of Judge Hanlon's decision no to recuse herself before she attempted to put me back in jail again and I do have proof that the Appeal was properly docketed on May 31st before you decided to renter the fray so that i would quit bothering your partner Rikleen about the Fraudlulent Title V inspeaction on the Beach House that she helped to cover up. If you don't think I have good reason to be pissed off and not trust anyone read Kerstein's accounts that I sent you as soon as Jean went back to Probate Court and got them after you and she were there on July 27th. If you haven't studied them already you should. You will see how sneaky Troccoli, McDonnell and Kerstein truly are and how McDonnell and Kerstein lied to you and played you like fiddle in June. You should be pissed off at them not me. That said I need the tapes and the documents ASAP as evidence to use against the Crown.up here in order to save my own dumb arse now that my wife has given me the boot.
    As you read the following letter please understand I have crossed paths over the years with all the smiling bastards the other Senators have listed. Comey got my stuff in New York before he replaced Thomspon who quit to work for Pepsi after his boss Ashcroft received my stuff. Ashcroft now works for Pat Robertson and I began torturing Regent University as soon as he got the job. Another of Ashcroft former underlings who now works for the title company that sold insurance on the title for our home in Milton must be a very nervous camper now that his underling's false allegations to Nancy backfired on him.
    On a funny note Andrew Card was once a neighbor of Woody's in Holbrook. I fire off an email now then to remind him that we are still breathing. Please never forget I sent my stuff to Alberto Gonzales when he was inside the White House. Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby and even Senator Obama the Senator FitzGerald he replaced and the Kickham cousin who is a lawyer in Illinios likely curse my name every night before they go to bed. Ask Patrick FitzGerald in Chicago why.
    I wrote this shit off the top of my head. Trust me when I say I study my foes and even the very dumb Troccoli and McDonnell have to admit I am very hard to argue. Your nasty partner Rikleen and all her political friends suck. I warned them all and even you that if the bastards broke up my family and threw my wife and kids out of their home there would be Hell to pay but only in an ethical and legal fashion. I repeat I am no threat to anyone. Woody and I are alone with my little dog far away in the Canadian woods. However very soon I am suing the Crown and filing many wiretap tapes into evidence in federal court in Canada, just like I promised I would on Maritime TV live on the news suppertime when I was running against the former Minister of Indian Affairs Andy Scott. I went out of my way to introduce your to him last year for your benefit as well as mine. I also went to high school witht that dumb bastard as well as the president of the New Brunswick Law society. When we were kids I was one of their minor heroes because I would not take any shit from the bullies who used to beat them up. The dude Terry Curtis who went to jail after he beat up his former friend Andy Scott in his constituency office after he had double crossed him even admitted to me when I was running for a seat in Parliament again that I was one of his heroes too. Now that is truly funny. Small wonder why Andy Scott was so afraid to be in the same room as me EH? Everybody claimed that I might hurt Andy Scott because i was such a mean nasty ugly guy but in truth both they all knew that he did not have a hope in hell of winning any debate with me because everybody in Fredericton knows I am no liar but Andy Scott certainly is. His family used to burn KKK crosses in their gravel pit when we were kids. Some liberal EH? Methinks he is as you once discribed nasty old Noam Chomsky to me. Andy Scott is merely one of the Fake Left. Nobody in their right mind fakes right. EH? Only George W. Bush is too dumb not to.

    P.S. There was an interesting coincidence yesterday but you did send this email before I spoke so I sense no foul play on your part at least. However I know for a fact the Feds do listen to my calls and read my emails so I do not trust anyone anymore. On live Radio that was heard all over the Maritimes I again explained why I was about to sue the Crown next week in Federal Court in Canada I told everyone about the wiretap tapes and that Congress was expecting them hopefully before Alberto Gonzales testified. As a double check if the the tapes do not get there or they deny it all I am filing many more up here to use against the Crown that supported my false imprisonment for the benefit of corrupt Yankees. However I am saving many more just in case I need to give them to the mob. As I said Enough is Enough just uphold the law and let the cards fall where they may. I have done nothing wrong but many lawyers and Feds have.

    Senator Arlen Specter
    Chairman
    Committee on the Judiciary

    Dear Senator Specter:

    We applaud your decision to hold hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee in light of recent revelations about the Natjonal Security Agency's domestic spying program. The American people deserve to understand the legal authority relied on to wiretap Americans within the United States, and whether any laws were violated. We very much appreciate your leadership in scheduling the first congressional hearing on this program. In particular, we are heartened that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has agreed to testify at those hearings.
    In light of news accounts that there was significant concern about the legality of the program even at the very highest levels of the Department of Justice, we also believe that it is critical for other relevant Administration officials to make themselves available at any hearings.
    Because of the importance of their testimony, every effort should be made to bring these witnesses before the Committee, and we appreciate that your staff has reached out to several of them already. If these witnesses are unavailable for the currently scheduled hearing on February 6th, we urge you to schedule additional hearing dates as necessary to accommodate these and any other witnesses who can shed light on the nature and legality of the NSA program.
    Among other people, we believe the witnesses should include at least the following high-ranking Administration officials, who were reportedly involved in creating, approving, and evaluating the NSA program:
    Former Attorney General John Ashcroft, who appears to have personally approved the program;
    Former Deputy Attorney General James B. Corney, who apparently expressed grave reservations about the program;
    Former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson, who for at least some period of time was kept in'the dark about the program; and
    White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card.
    In addition, we hope you will join us in urging the Administration to allow these witnesses to waive any executive privilege in connection with that testimony. Only if we can obtain frank and forthright testimony from these officials - without resort to hiding behind the guise of executive privilege - can the Senate and the American people understand whether or not the law and the Constitution were inappropriately circumvented.

    Sincerely,
    Charles Schumer
