One the one hand, you’ve got a minority government that’s just been caught laundering a million bucks through corrupt ad agencies back into its own coffers. On the other hand, you’ve got a weak and divided opposition; I for one am unconvinced they’d govern better. Doesn’t matter; when a government acts this badly it just has to be spanked, pour encourager les autres. Go on Stephen, Jack, and Gilles, pull the damn trigger already and let’s have an election and give the Liberals a dose of opposition. It’ll make us all feel better, and our politics are strongly enough centre-loaded that it’ll be hard for the next government to do too much damage. It’ll probably be another minority government anyhow, which is probably a good thing at this stage.
