Conservatives allied with Quebec Separatistes? That doesn't seem right.
Also, this puts Martin's recent announcement regarding Canada's commitment to re-arming, and re-joining the US in the War On Terror, into a very cynical, yellowish light. He's cutting deals all around, trying to save his own ass, and his Party's.
I think he's done, no matter what he does now. People are going to jail, and Martin might end up facing charges himself, if the investigation runs its course.
Saw Harper on CBC the other night...he's sure feeling his oats, right about now. Isn't he pretty much a lock, for the PM job this summer?
While the Liberals swirl down the political toilet, it might seem to some Canadians like their whole system is broken, and needs a drastic overhaul. It might help to curb the despair, if you do what Americans have done during serious scandals, disputed elections and the like: remind yourselves, at least the change in the seat of power is going to occur without a military coup, or political assassination, the way they always do in the less-civilized countries. That might seem like a small thing, but it's not.
Here's hoping Canada gets things straightened out in a hurry.
