Must See TV

The Liberals are talking about televising Question Period in the Senate, so that Canadians everywhere can watch Michael Fortier.

I'm hoping that this will lead to a "Much More CPAC" TV station. In addition to Senate hearings, we could have a Real World type show where washed up politicians (I'm looking at you Joe Clark) share a loft. There could be a "Political Punked" where Ben Mulroney plays tricks on MPs (Stockwell Day finds out that his new limo driver is flamboyantly gay - hilarity ensues).

It'll be Must See TV.


  • I think most Canadians woke up on January 24th learning who their new Prime Minister was and thought to themselves, "Dude...we have been punked."

  • Don't you just love all the attention the Senate is getting under a Harper government? You've all been punked!

  • Sounds great... but:

    Under Senate rules, only one MInister answeres questions, that's Marjorie LeBreton. So let's instead throw all of Harper's anti-Milroney quotes of the past 10 years at her every day instead. We'll never get to hear Fortier answer question in the Senate. Unless they are about a bill he is sponsoring as Minister of Public Works.

    Correct me if I am wrong...

  • Can we also have some kind of Bachlor like competition where nice young ladies try to win the hearts of Rob Anders, Jason Kenney and the rest of the Tory virgin caucus?

  • I happen to know for a fact that Stockwell Day has had at least one homosexual staff member in the past. Him and that staff member worked together in a very effective, very warm working relationship and friendship, and there were no issues (zero) with regards to either man's sexual orientation. They were friends and close confidants, and the staffer in question was among the very-most senior and inner core of his staff. Mr. Day is far from anti-gay. I would be careful when making assumptions, CG. Be careful to not fall for the same prejudice trap that some would accuse conservatives such as Mr. Day of.

  • Trading Ridings.

    In tonight's episode, Myron Thomspon and Bill Graham trade ridings. What's that? Gay pride week. Oh no!

  • Has anyone actually seen a Senate QP? It is about as interesting as a Ken Dryden speech.
