1. He's baaaaaack! I must say, I can't wait for
2. Prairie Fire has a run down on some Saskatchewan endorsement news. Still no word on Ralph, who remains one of the biggest catches still out there (after Jean Lapierre, of course).
3. The Globe continues their leadership series with a look at Scott Brison. My opinion of Scott has risen quite a lot during this race and I'd probably slot him into my top 3 at this point.
4. Bob is proposing a form of pharmacare which would be a great initiative.
5. Michael Ignatieff launched his platform yesterday, amid much fanfare. I was very relieved to see that Michael is against a devolution of powers to the provinces since, listening to his various musings, this was a road I was almost positive he would be heading down.
He is still determined to re-open the constitution and to recognize Quebec (and first nations people) as nations in the constitution. I really can't see a scenario where re-opening the constitution wouldn't cause more harm than good but I suppose it's possible that we'll have a nice round of amicable constitutional talks, leading to a common consensus which leaves every single province, territory, potential nation, and special interest group happy.
There are some interesting proposals in the rest of the platform too, but the national unity section is the only part I've read in depth so far. Once all the campaigns have released platforms, I'll do a comparison of some key differences between the candidates.
