Hopefully this Ford video thing will bury the stop sign incident </hack>

But what an incredibly non-NDP thing to do.

If Justin Trudeau had done that instead of Mulcair, I would be soooooo happy.

More video: Del Mastro literally crying on the House floor about his campaign finance issue.   LOL. In less amusing news, Dawson is suspending her Wright investigation because RCMP has now said there's sufficient grounds to start a criminal one. QP will be very interesting on both sides today, that's for sure.

308's take on Atlantic Grit-mania. Plus the current federal polls. Always amazing to look back and see how quickly PET and Mulroney went south in their final terms.

I think the situation is worse when you consider that half of the majority re-elections were won by Jean Chretien who had the advantage of an almost perfectly divided right wing.

Yet doesn't Harper have the advantage of a divided left wing?

Toronto police were aware of relationships between Ford and people in that video, says CBC.

For Hash's question: Kady O'Malley says Galipeau's beret is because of his cancer treatment. On another subject, exclusive Wallin interview with Mansbridge tonight.

It's not like if they had any choice. They claimed they were having that position until FIFA decision.

Looks like Trudeau has some charitable trouble. Kenney and Poilievre had a field day with this one in QP today.

Natynczyk will be the new CSA president starting in August.

Meanwhile here in Montreal, a bus driver beats up a senior. I'll leave it at "depraved" to avoid death points.

Well, if anyone in the NDP would have that personality, it'd easily be Mulcair.

Isn't NDP full of union leaders? At least, in Quebec, they tend to have terrible personalities (the union leaders).

Let's not overestimate this too much, merely some proverbial egg on face which will be forgotten once the session ends next week.

On another subject, here's an interview with McLachlin. Didn't realize she's now our longest-serving Chief Justice.

Can someone give their opinion on an offline argument I'm having?

Suppose Peter MacKay & Stephen Harper waited until after the 2004 election to initiate merger talks. Would the Liberals have won a majority?

Since Adscam is still happening... quite possible Liberals win a 1997 wafer-thin majority. IRL before the merger both conservative parties were barely cracking 25% combined. Granted that's before Adscam, but best case scenario where Harper's Alliance benefits most, you get a strong Liberal minority because the Alliance can't reach beyond the MB/ON border.

Trudeau has offered to return the speaking fees in question. RDI reports that QSF knew of FIFA rules permitting turbans since last September.

Yes. Agree it would be like 1997. Except, the NDP would have won more seats (in fact, probably more so than in RL)

Applebaum was arrested a few hours ago by UPAC and charged with 14 counts of conspiracy, abuse of public trust, fraud and municipal corruption. Also arrested was former executive committeeman Saulie Zajdel on unspecified charges, better known as the 2011 Tory candidate against Cotler in Mount-Royal. The opposition doesn't want trusteeship (last imposed when Montreal defaulted in 1940) but the provincial government's watching closely. In other Quebec news, construction's on strike and the PQ wants a negotiated settlement.

I thought Applebaum was supposed to be Montreal's saviour?

So, does this mean he is  no longer mayor?

Executive committee, which is reorganizing itself around the new parties right now, will have to elect another interim mayor. These charges relate to six-digit real estate transactions he made when he was NDG borough mayor in the 2006-11 period.

The hilarious thing is that he planned to run for reelection as borough mayor (which he's held since 2002) until this happened.
