Bourque Newswatch is an essential daily visit for all Canadian news junkies like me.
He had 3 stories up today that tweaked my attention so, given my lack of other news, I thought i'd talk about them.
1. BC LIBS SURGE IN NEW POLL, NDP LEADER IN TROUBLE
Excellent! As someone who will soon be moving to BC, i'm all in favour of a stronger BC Liberal Party. For those who don't know, there is no real "conservative" provincial party in British Columbia. Rather, BC politics tends to be the NDP versus the "anybody but the NDP coalition of free market supporters". Being firmly planted in the latter category, I intend to join the BC Liberals when I get out to the Island. Yes, I realize I will be working with some federal Liberals, but the potential of a strong BC not run by economic terrorists compells me to help the cause.
2. MCGUINTY: FEDS UNFAIR TO ONTARIO
Tough cheese, Dalton. McGuinty spent the federal election complaining about how evil conservatives are and how much better off Ontario is under the federal Liberals. He was in part correct, to be fair... Ontario certainly received the vast majority of the government's attention, time, and money... at the expense of every other province. Now that Stephen Harper and Co. are trying to even out the playing field a little, McGuinty cries foul.
Seems to me like Dalton McGuinty's Ontario is in favour of equality, so long as they're first.
3. MORE LORD TROUBLES
This guy's government is soon going to fall, and dramatically I think. All I can say is Thank God he didn't become CPC leader.
