The Big Cod Says, "Keep Verizon Out."

Safely retired ex-general Rick Hillier has a new gig as chairman of Telus Atlantic Canada Community Board.   In that capacity he wrote an op-ed urging the government not to let foreigners in to play in Canada's miserable cellular market.

As I read Hillier's bit of tripe I kept thinking that this was from the guy who talked Paul Martin into approving Canada's combat mission to Kandahar and who assured the Canadian people that his miniscule, 2,500-soldier force would only have to contend with a "few dozen ...scumbags."

I knew all I would ever need to know about Hillier's credibility with his Kandahar assessment.
