"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

Sans Souci

The only Senator ever fired was Andrew Thompson. He  had been  Leader of the Ontario Liberals for a while.

His  departure  from that job was permeated with emotion. Suggesting some personal tragedy.

He showed up a handful of times in the Senate. Then took himself  and his Senate salary off to Mexico to live.

For seven years.

Sadness  was no doubt assuaged  with  his good fortune.

Until public attention caught up to him.

No cameras allowed in the Senate.

We can't watch Senator Wallin.

Let them implode. All of them. Every party. It is terrific to observe & not give a continental.

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
