Liberal Christy Clark shows how clueless she is on Senate

 

When a politician has only a basic understanding of how the Canadian Constitution works and is only yipping half-baked/asinine thoughts, it would be best for them to be told by their handlers to keep their big mouths shut. Posing for media photo ops is more of their style and they should leave the real issues to those who actually have some knowledge on the subject.

Case in point today is Liberal premier Christy Clark musing about how it would be best to get rid of the Senate except for the darn Constitution thingy:

“It’s not the best of all the options. The best of the options is to abolish the senate, but it’s not a real option for this country because of the way constitutional reform works.”

This is pandering at its finest from a vapid provincial leader whose intellect on serious matters like Senate reform is about a 1/4″ deep. (see here)

Scott Reid: Do as I say now, not what I did then

 

Paul Martin’s former communications director and one of the key people involved in the Chretien/Martin internal Liberal power struggle, Scott Reid, has the audacity to write a piece advising others not to settle old scores.

“Rear view recriminations will do exactly nothing to help renew and revitalize the party” (see here)

This is coming from the same guy who along with Martin’s other “Board” members David Herle, Tim Murphy, Terrie O’Leary and Michele Cadario did everything they could to reduce Chretien and his cronies’ influence after wrestling the control of the Liberal Party away from them (see here).

 

Rogers announces news channel

 

Rogers Communications is launching a new specialty network, CityNews Channel, in October. I will now await Margaret Atwood, the Ottawa media and a massive on-line petition drive by Avaaz to stop this from happening.
