Bravo National Post

They're busy elevating the political discourse this evening. Can you see the difference?

The original John Ivison column published earlier tonight.

The edited version which appeared approximately 20 minutes after the previous version.

Nothing like a political columnist pushing boundaries with creative analogies, hey? Mr. Ivison is known as a Liberal critic, that's obvious to anyone who reads his stuff. But, in my view, there is a callousness at play here, almost an intent to demean which is worth noting. Not everything goes in Canadian politics these days, at least it shouldn't. Seems the National Post editors may have recognized this and good for them if they did. The second time, anyway.

Will leave it to others to form their own views, based on the editing that's occurred.
