Den Tandt nails what Mulcair's doing on the Bastien allegations- base-stoking.

Interesting article on survival tips for Francos studying in English. The more cross-pollination on both sides the better, IMO.

Don Martin says the sitting will continue till the 3rd week of June. More evidence of a summer prorogation.

We're not seeking a UNSC seat according to Baird. Meh.

Is a Security Council seat worth worrying about?

No, but the fact than Harper is destroying our past excellent international reputation is very worrying.

Israel-loving
Copying our foreign policy on US one
Insulting various leftist statemen
Leaving or blatantly refusing to abide by UN conventions

Proof: Canada was crushed when it ran for a seat on security council. You are blind if you don't notice it.

I refer you to the UN delegations from North Korea and Iran.

Looks like the government's IR foray will start very soon.

As Ivison predicted, EDC chief Stephen Poloz will be the new BOC guv.

Horwath: 50-50. I still won't believe she does it unless it happens.

QS has a new co-leader, to replace Amir Khadir.

Even through the favorite was Alexandre Leduc, candidate in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in 2012, it's Andrés Fontecilla, candidate in Laurier-Dorion. The two other candidates were David Fortin-Côté, candidate in Montarville and Yvan Zanetti, candidate in Argenteuil.

QS also refused any alliance with the PQ. The anti-'66 if you will. Tongue

What happened to Khadir?

Is the QS electoral strategy to keep changing leaders to increase their seat count. The fact that they have 2 leaders probably helped them win 2 ridings. If they had just one leader, then they probably would have only won one. 2 leaders means 2 people in the spotlight.

One of the co-spokespeople can't be an MNA per party rules.

Oh. Well, that's convenient. As I said, it's an interesting and so far successful electoral strategy.

Ontario: Per Benzie, Horwath has not decided whether to support the budget, and McGuinty is going to take full responsibility for Gasgate. Guessing more mea than culpa. Dipper caucus meets tomorrow but they don't know when public consults wrap up.

I know Ivison's the Scoop King, but this seems hard to believe. Hiebert's bill is in the Senate right now and Clement's idea is in the omnibudget. Now if he's talking about Step 3... then yeah, that's a would-be fourth term project, as Poilievre himself told Tim Harper at Xmas.

Horwath still blowing hot and cold, perhaps the teensiest bit more hawkish, on what she'll do. Said a few more days of consultation, wouldn't bite when Solomon asked her about the May 15 deadline for a June election.

Even the leader will leave.
Depending of the news sources, either 6 of the 15 left or all of them will leave today. For memory, they got 39 seats last election.

Among other charges, he will be charged for gangsterism, which is quite unusual, it's for criminal groups, usually.
