Politicians Playing Dangerous Game

Posted on Thursday, November 30 at 12:47 by jensonj
But given the divisive nature of a motion that was supposed to be all about rebuilding national unity, perhaps it's not surprising that this newspaper finds itself agreeing with the few federal Liberals who would not back Harper's motion and also fear the government is playing dangerous games. Like Liberal leadership contender Ken Dryden, who rightfully complained in the Commons on Monday that the motion had "no precise language, no precise depth of understanding, no time and mechanism to work through, no clarity and no support." Well, it had a lot of support in the House of Commons. How it plays outside the insulated world of our politicians is a bit more complicated. http://www.winnipegsun.com/Comment/Editorial/2006/11/30/pf-2560354.html [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on December 1, 2006]
