CTV's Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife reported Monday that the council would comprise Frank McKenna, Paul Martin, John Manley and Roy Romanow.
"This is a way to assure Canadians the economy would be managed properly," Fife told CTV Newsnet.
I can only imagine that Fife, the greasy little Harper suck up, must have gagged and shed a bitter and forlorn tear penning those words. Oh no, not grownups, no fair!
Fife also reported that the coalition government would introduce a $30-billion economic stimulus package and roll back $50 billion in planned corporate tax cuts.
Uh oh. Better hope there are some spare leaf springs from one of the dying SUV plants lying around, 'cos they'll be needing to beef up the shocks on the fainting couches. Poor Twinkles Flaherty, stumbling about in the middle of the road as the blinding lights of political mortality bear down on him. A sweeter repudiation of the Harris team I couldn't ask for, now the only thing trickling down will be the bitter piddle of fear filling Flaherty's shoes.
I don't have much faith in either the Liberals or the NDP but what the hell, better a weak coalition that understands positive compromise than an arrogant minority that can't spell the word. The only thing I'm going to wish for now is that they offer Duceppe a cabinet post, the exploding heads would be audible from quite a distance.
