Almost certainly no Ontario June election, as we expected. In other news, Vaillancourt tried to personally bribe Mulcair with a white envelope sometime in the '90s.

So when does Peter Penashue get appointed to the Senate?

Whenever there is a vacancy in NL? Cheesy

Wonder if he would get his cabinet spot back!

2017, and there are much more deserving party hacks out there from Newfieland.

Senate will move in 2018 to the GCC for a decade while the Parliament Buildings are renovated. Guessing Commons will also move out.

Wynne fired Godfrey from OLG and now the entire board of directors is quitting with him. LOL.

Duffy's out of the Tory caucus. Because of the double-dipping in 2011.

Another twist: Fife says Duffy attempted to influence the CRTC hearings on Sun Media mandatory carriage. Caucus was furious at him, both MPs and senators.

In other news, there won't be an LCBO strike.

Wynne is giving the Dippers what they want on accountability but still aren't backing down on transit funding.

Something we can all be happy about. Liquor stores are an essential service don't you know. Let the teachers strike for weeks, but make sure we are well lubricated!

Wouldn't have been a problem for me though, it's not far to cross the border and get booze from a SAQ or dep.

It's ridiculous. Rob Ford has many faults, but I don't think he is a crack addict, of all things.

In the wake of another polling fiasco, here's a '62 article from Gwyn on our very first federal internal polls, done by the PCs. Less than 40% was supposed to yield 70-odd seats, yet obviously IRL they unfortunately got 116. H/T Delacourt's weekend column on pollmageddon. I agree with her that the focus has to be below the topline: demographics, geography, etc. Especially here in Quebec where you have to watch Francophone and regional breakdowns.

Why, because he's a turncoat, or because him stalling constitutional talks?



It's pretty funny, but it would explain a lot. Reminds me of Rush Limbaugh.

Let's remember you I come a quite nationalist area and than the guy is hated for Meech. Less than Clyde Wells, through.

Wow. What's with former CTV journalists turned Conservative Senators?

Maybe to fill their vacancies, Harper will have to appoint Lloyd Robertson and Craig Oliver?

Apparently Brazeau told Solomon that he has written proof he was allowed to charge expenses now deemed bad. Guess we'll hear more about that next week, when Harper will be in South America.

Wallin will have to repay $60k before the audit, hundreds of thousands of dollars potentially at issue, RCMP will get the audit once it's complete. As for Duffy, original report was much tougher, he sought an exemption, claimed his Ottawa residence for multiple purposes, was only in PEI during the summer. Legal letter between Wright and Duffy for that deal. Parliament might be prorogued in early June. To which I can only say WTF.
