Bernier's "Deep Impact"

Rex Murphy's take on the "Bernier affair" from the other night. I'm not fully in agreement with all aspects of this commentary - it's not all farce and folly, to use his words. But his main point here that's worth acknowledging is that this Bernier implosion remains all about Harper's judgment. And that is a lasting lesson of this parliamentary session. I would add that this take is bolstered by the other scandals such as the Cadman tapes and the in-and-out raid on Conservative HQ. And that sterling judgment is apparently to be manifested going forward in the Conservative reaction to the Liberal green shift plan.

As they say, the fish rots from the head...
