Rerun Season

It's a slow July news day...Harper hasn't called the by elections yet...so how to fill the political section of newspapers?

Election Speculation!

I must say, the "Dion hints at election" story has been used so many times over the past year, there must be some template laying around where you just plug in a quote, insert the season, and voila! News!


UPDATE: OK, OK, the story has been updated to not only include election speculation...but also by election speculation. And, in the lead, an actually newsworthy bit about Dion pledging to impose tarrifs on countries who don't do enough to control emissions. An interesting idea and a good way to skate around some of the talking but I have a hard time seeing how this would actually work in practice.
