Adios, Paul, either you were a component of scandal, or you were incompetent if you actually did not know anything.
And, Rev. You NDP???
What I would like to see is set election dates (ala USA). This would not give the governing party (if they have a mojority) to call whenever they want.
Martin just said general election 30 days after Gomery inquiry. Sounds fair. The idea of having 2 elections in one year is getting us nowhere. The inquiry will be over by August and the report will be out in December.
If we end up with an election now we will have Harper in power with the Bloc as the opposition. Might as well lower the flag and put up the stars and stripes and give Quebec to the separatists. Goodbye Canada! Harpers plan for Canadian unity will be a tough love approach to Quebec that will play into the hands of the separatists.
Can't you make up your own mind about what went on? The testimony is rehashed every day on the news and radio, and internet. You can read the testimony online. Come to your own conclusions.
This means a spring election in 2006.
Frankly I am sick of Liberal corruption and this is a crisis of the liberal party brought on by the arrogance of Jean, not Paul. Just like the PC party split with reform after Brian so too the Liberal have two camps as well.

Laton doesn't have the electoral gravitas to the voting public and no one in the NDP will so a NDP government is a fairy tale.
The liberals may very well be corrupt bastards but they are Canadian corrupt bastards, it's not much of a choice but it really is the only one we have.
I wonder what a Liberal/Conservative tie would bring us?
What time do the bars open? I think we all deserve a stiff drink.
Yes but it still is really second hand. I also am wise enough to know how the press and talk show radio put thier own "slants" on it, to make is more sensational than it may or may not be.
I for one just want to see the final report first, instead of getting bits and pieces.
Everyone blames Martin(yes the leader is responsible) but there is no real hard evidence it was him, just the party and Chretien. You must remember Martin and Chretien hate each other. I am not saying Martin is totally innocent but I want to see the report first. It is just fair and the right thing to do, instead of how so many people are jumping on the band wagon to crucify him. He apologized and to me seemed sincere.
I am pissed off I missed this. I hope it gets re broadcast again tonight sometime on Newsworld. Usually I do not miss these things.
The timing of this thing was terrible. It's obvious he's targetting Ontarians, and as usual, to hell with the west.
well at 4 pm pdt was too early. 5:30 pdt would of been better(still early here but we all need to compromise), yes that is late in NFLD but still just 10 pm there. 8:30 in Montreal so that would of been a better compromise for the whole country. Most people I know do not get off work until 4 or 5. Its not as if they all would be driving home as fast as they could to watch it anyways..........
Do you think Vlad Putin has to hear these complaints in Russia? They have 11 times zones; can you imagine if the Western Canadians lived in Siberia?
