Some quick reading for everyone 
(en francais)


Way past my bedtime, but I wanted to post these two articles for everyone. One on Paul Martin and one on the Conservative Party:

EDITORIAL: Martin has blurry 'vision'

A sensible agenda for Prime Minister Paul Martin to get to work on as Parliament resumes tomorrow after its long summer break would be something like this:

(1) Fix health care.

(2) Fix our catch-and-release criminal justice system.

(3) Lower federal taxes on gasoline.

This, as opposed to the speech Martin gave not to Canadians, but to senior bureaucrats in Ottawa last week, that was as lacking in substance as it was overhyped by the media. (Except for the Toronto Sun, of course.)
What Conservatives Need to Learn
By: Rachel Marsden
PUBLISHED: TORONTO SUN (September 23/05)

COPYRIGHT 2005 RACHEL MARSDEN

Another week, another high-profile conservative meltdown over party leadership. This week’s came courtesy of Carol Jamieson—Vice Chair of the Conservative Party’s GTA Presidents Council. In an open letter to fellow conservatives headlined on Bourque Newswatch, Jamieson whacked Stephen Harper around like a bloated piñata on the summer yard party circuit, ultimately calling for him to step down.
I know there are many out there that have no love for Ms. Marsden, but put that aside for a minute and have a good read. While I disagree with her thoughts on Stephen Harper, I pretty much agree with the main thrust of her article.
