Mercer does omnibus



I agree. Could have done without the use of the word handsome but otherwise, spot on.

Also, look for MP pension reform to be included in the omnibus bill for public relations purposes, always a paramount priority: 
When Peter Van Loan announced Monday that scaling back MP’s retirement nest eggs would figure into the fall’s budget implementation bill, it lay an obvious trap: vote against what promises to be another hefty and likely controversial budget bill and the Conservatives can tell voters you voted against pension reform from now until 2015. 
Conservatives and democracy, they just go together. Like a fish and a bicycle.

Update: Sixth Estate on the omnibus/MP pension reform ploy.
