I suppose I should probably get off the internet, if that's what I'm gonna do.
McGuinty also bears responsibility for Caledonia, but then again, so does any Prime Minister who's been in power since the whole shebang got started. Native treaties, as well as criminal law, are both considered federal "powers" (though left mostly up to the provinces to enforce.)
McGuinty's mandate is not directly in policing; Fantino's was. That he couldn't police the area for the greatest good to the greatest number demonstrates, to me, a failure to live up to one's mandate that I cannot forgive.
There are far better areas in which to criticize McGuinty in terms of his failure to live up to his mandate (eHealth, OLG, Health Premium, Smart Meters, coal-fired generation anyone?)
Thanks for the attack, though. Nice to know my abs can still take a needless gut punch from time to time.
Aside from which, it's a poor call indeed to confuse measured support with putting the ...well, you know... on a pedastal.
Imaginings of a grand conspiracy between Liberals and Obama Democrats are just that - imaginings. There's no incentive for a President to be back-rooming it with the Canadian Opposition leader, and there's certainly no political benefit for a Canadian leader to be seen cozying up to the US (or outwardly bashing them, either).
