Reaching

News of the Conservatives' latest brainstorm of Quebec strategery.

Apparently, and you didn't hear it from me, Justin Trudeau supported Gerard Kennedy in the 2006 Liberal leadership race. In connection with that support, he may have made some unfavourable remarks about Kennedy's opponents, including one by the name of Michael Ignatieff. Shocking, I know.

This, in the Conservative stretching, reaching mind, is worthy of an upcoming onslaught of ten percenter flyers in 20 ridings to play up these golden oldies. Courtesy of we the taxpayer, of course. The Conservatives' continued excessive abuse of these tools for their partisan self-interest rolls on.

It's really quite something. Almost as if they're trying to hitch their wagon to Trudeau's star. Or something like that.
