A golden opportunity for Ignatieff. If he seizes it.

Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lower;
See approach proud Edward's power--
Chains and slaverie
The front of our battle for democracy is indeed lowering.  And in it lies a propitious moment for Ignatieff.  He has wanted to prove himself worthy of the Prime Ministership of this great country since he came back in 2005.  Here is his chance.  Lead the resistance to this travesty.  Convince the NDP and Bloc that they must work with him to prevent this.  Does he have enough of the royal jelly necessary for the job?
Wha will be a traitor knave?
Wha can fill a coward's grave?
Wha sae base as be a slave?
Let him turn and flee!
There are obviously risks involved.  If he fails he had best return to Harvard. If he doesn't want to take the risk, then he must step aside for someone who will.
By Oppression's woes and pains!
By your sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!
Lay the proud usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty's in every blow!
Let us do or die!
Full poem here.

Och aye! Claymore!

I don't think that Iggy has it in him, frankly. But we may be reaching a point where the people will just surge ahead of these strange wimps who pretend to be our political leaders.

In memory of the five Canadians who died today in Afghanistan.

I thought it was 5 Americans who lost their lives.
Anyhow, does anyone know where Iggy went for his holidays...and for how long.....anyone?
