Lessons of the week
1. Canada vs. the US — as has been usual for the past five years or so, Canada is right.
2. Re that Vikileaks thing — it was mobilizing libertarians that actually was key to getting C-30 reconsidered, not going after the minister’s (messy!) private life. The #TellVicEverything campaign was cleverer and more effective. The other part, well, if we have bad luck, it’ll mean we’re that much closer to a massive data-dump on MP’s sex scandals and the end of the Canadian ceasefire on the issue.
3. Dave hasn’t learnt his lesson from Canadian history. Don’t do it, Dave! (Really, don’t.)
4. Re the Trudeau thing — Coyne got it right last night on At Issue: the Liberals simply do not believe Stephen Harper is a legitimate prime minister. (11:50 mark.)
