Thanks. Quite an interesting read. Does give me good reason to be wary of the Red Tories Tongue

ClusterDuff just blew up in a major way. Nigel Wright could be charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust. One potentially devastating line: that Harper knew in "broad terms only" that he (Wright) was personally assisting him when attempting to repay his expenses. But the RCMP doesn't believe Harper was personally involved in the cheque.

In less depressing news, Hastman is running in Edmonton St. Albert. Great news, hopefully he climbs the ranks quickly. Grin

Forgot to mention this yesterday, but Ivison absurdly implied in a Kenney column that his vocal pro-lfie stance could doom his chances of being PM. The Gallery and social liberalism...  sigh.

The Gallery was enamored with Kim Campbell. 'Nuff said.

Stoffer rules out NS NDP leadership run.

Maureen MacDonald will be interim leader. That's a good pick. She's the most senior member of caucus, has cabinet experience, and will make the NDP's left happy.

This is very exciting news! I hope he gets the nomination and wins the General, he'll be a great MP, a great potential future Minister and I know will stand up for his constituents and give them excellent representation.

He will be fine. That was a 62% Tory riding in 2011. Rathgeber bows out is my guess. He won't want to suffer a Guergis fate.

Redistributed, it becomes 64%.

Is he a significant candidate in some way? Why do you hope he climbs the ranks quickly?

James Moore criticises Joe Clark on Facebook (posts photo of front page of "Embassy: Canada's Foreign Policy Newsweekly" with headline: "Joe Clark Calls for a Return to Soft Power") and posts a comment of: "With respect, no. Let's learn from past failures and not repeat them, Mr Clark."

Hear hear. Mulroney's the only ex-PM with FP advice worth listening to.

Tories are running Cantonese and Punjabi radio ads on Trudeau's drug policy, which seem to be working thus far.

Great, the Champlain Bridge is literally cracking up. Or at least one of its support pillars is.

Alberta PCs are holding their leadership review today and tomorrow. Most expect Redford to pass, but by how much? Most observers don't think they'll boot their leader for the fourth consecutive time, mostly because they're in no mood to do so. There's still time, and at any rate I hope they keep her till 2016.

Things could get interesting if Wright is charged or the Tories lose Brandon-Souris.

Harper electoral liability in the west? He's mostly been a liability in the east. mUst not be going well if he is in the Reform west now.

Trudeau calls the PLQ "supposedly federalist." Actually, he was referring to the NDP. On the flip side, Mulcair talking that up hurts him in Ontario. So a draw.
