The Airing of the Grievances
1. To Naheed Nenshi: Because of you, everyone thinks Calgary has gone soft. Electing a muslim university professor who blogs about urban planning? Yeah, way to be a right wing rebel without a cause. Calgary used to be the Jack Bauer of Canada - now the city acts like one of the kids from Glee.
2. To Carl Benito's wife: I blame you for not paying your husband's taxes, the worldwide economic downturn, and Canada not winning a security council seat at the UN.
3. To Rahim Jaffer and Helena Guergis: Way to make us read 20,000 stories about you this year. Those are hours of my life I'll never get back.
4. To Anonymous Liberal Sources: I have it on good authority from unnamed colleagues of yours that you're not helping anyone.
5. To Tony Clement and Stephen Harper: Among the many grievances I have this year, the abolition of the long form census tops the list. I know that from an ideological perspective, Conservatives generally see government as an obstacle to, than a vehicle of, progress. But that doesn't mean you should shoot the government in the food, by making it fly blind with inaccurate data. And it certainly doesn't mean you should hurt the hundreds of private businesses that rely on census data.
No, it didn't sink your government. As the pundits would say "you won". Just like you seem to have "won" on prorogation, appointed senators, and a host of other issues. But just because you can punch someone in the dark, doesn't mean you should.
