"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Yes Virginia ...There is a Santa Clause ..

At the time of the provincial election ,comments were conspicuous  by their absence.As if people were rendered speechless by the result.

Yet there it was .
No mistaking it.
Despite spending in excess of $2.1 billion  for purely political purposes ,with nothing to show for it but  two abandoned construction sites and various other scandals, the government responsible was elected with a majority.

However voters viewed the performance of the Liberals,  Conservatives failed to convince them they would do any better.  The NDP champion of unions and masses (not the same thing) made no progress either.

There was blame  enough to share and nobody wanted to talk about it.

Liberals spread the fields well and apparently the majority reaped the benefits.

Until the Honorable  Charles Sousa  presented the budget on Monday, at least  they had the grace not to gloat.

It's been several weeks  and several comments have been received.

I'm not sure there's  merit in starting  a conversation about it now.

Even less sure the winner in our riding should take the brunt .

The deed is done

We had our chance to make a change.

 There just were no options.

What is..is.

There's nought to be done about it.

There's just something sinister  and disheartening about governments with access to billions  making
rules about how much a municipal  candidate can spend  in an election,while they float themselves up the river on a barge of  largesse disbursed by the billion.

Stephen Harper with his high tab promoters ,Duffy and Wallen ,tossed overboard like ballast
when the boat took  on water

Dalton McGuinty with contracts that he signed and cancelled at huge cost and Devil take the hindmost.

He is probably thinking now, he didn't need to resign after all.

Hudak and Horvath made it safe for him after all.

As you say, the deed is done. Anything else is only sour grapes.

You are right, E. They are actually attempting to bring Dalton out of the shadows again. I really do not think that will work but then the idea of him teaching classes was weird too.

Fully agree! and that doesn't happen very much between us. :)

Why not bring Dalton back. They have 4 yrs to do whatever, however and with as much money as they want...and no one can stop them. They deed has certainly been done.
