Lazy Blogging Alert
So, instead, I'm going to do the lazy blogging thing and just slap up links to various Globe & Mail stories with comments like "this is an interesting story" or "this is an interesting idea". Enjoy!
-This is an interesting story; The opposition is threatening to pull the plug over Afghanistan. I must say, I'm looking forward to the daily election speculation we're sure to see in the new year. It'll bring back fond memories of pretty much all of 2005 when every time Jack Layton sneezed, it was interpreted as a sign an election was imminent.
On the same topic, I'd wager money that once the new critic portfolios are handed out, Michael Ignatieff doesn't find himself in foreign affairs. Just a hunch.
-This is an interesting story on the unraveling political career of Andre Boisclair. Were PQ members stoned when they picked this guy? Everyone keeps saying that Stephen Harper is Jean Charest's best chance at re-election but I tend to think it's Mr. Boisclair.
-This is an...umm..."interesting" story on the Cape Breton separation movement. Maybe they can get advice from Jerry Boyle.
-Gordon Gibson proposes the interesting idea of going to a preferential ballot for elections. Makes sense to me. It'd remove some of the silly strategic voting strategies we're forced to employ and would ensure that MPs command the support of a majority of voters in their riding.
-Cindy Klassen is Canada's athlete of the year. What an interesting choice.
