Memo to Stephane Dion - You Don't Need an Excuse Any Longer

Forget the budget or the nonsensical mission to Afghanistan or even climate change. Stephen Harper's government deserves to be toppled for the pure sake of the Canadian people.

Read the accounts, Dana Cadman's claims, Jodi Cadman's claims, the taped voice of Harper himself - these people are morally unfit to control our government.

Stand up Stephane and do what's right - defeat Harper. Oh, and by the way, while you're at it come up with some clear, workable policies that Canadian voters can understand and support.

There's the environment, the environment, the environement, the environment, and the environment.

My rule in politics is never to campaign on the most important issue. It is never the most important campaign issue.

Note that I made a mistake with regards to the May 17 meeting (two days before the vote). It was in Ottawa and Cadman's Assistant Dan Wallace can't recalled he was there. It seems that Dona and Jodi knew about the insurance offer once Chuck flew back to Surrey. This was confirmed in Question Period yesterday.

Now it looks like the Cons are going to throw the Cadmans under the bus, which they do when things don't go their way.

You could be right, Shroom. This is going to be a tough one for Harper to ride out. How he treats the Cadmans will influence how a lot of his own supporters see him. This episode has elevated the memory of Chuck Cadman to a level that could easily be very dangerous to Harper if he follows his instincts. He's not a likeable guy to begin with and, from there, it's a mild nudge to make him popularly loathed.
