"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

One Door Closes ...Another One Opens.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Sans Souci":

the concern of the 2 senators about losing their Senate health insurance isn't winning hearts and minds. Most of the rest of us deal with the reality of OHIP, waiting lists, lack of doctors, and all the other trivial, trying necessities of existence with no special privileges.
Sans souci indeed


I think  our two senators  have stopped worrying about lost privilege. It's  likely they are concentrating on other things.

I  believe it's entirely possible  both were appointed for the advantage of their  high public profiles nationally and  corresponding benefit to the Prime Minister and his party.

Their connections and influence on the media nationwide  the political advantage  would have seemed invaluable.

Worth more perhaps than any  ten Senator in the house. 

I think there  might well have been an understanding their deal  had  little  to do with Senate function and everything to do with  political advantage.

The Senators Duffy have nothing left to lose. 

No more secrets to  keep. No innocents to protect.

Maybe a book  or two in the offing.

A musical.
