“This is pure political self-interest and they are doing this in the most undemocratic fashion.”

– Kory Teneycke, communications director for PM Stephen Harper, reacting to news that the opposition may (may) have finally grown a spine after the Tory government assassinated the NSOC with its proposed economic update.

Related: Bob Fife muses on the likelihood of a potential Grit/Dipper coalition, which “changes hour after hour,” and talks to former NDP leader Ed Broadbent regarding coalition negotiations.

Flashback: Props to Murray Dobbin. That is all.

Update: Canadians for a Progressive Coalition — add your name.

  1. Wonderful post, mattt. How do you do it in so few words?

    Li’l Kory is so funny, yes?

    I am trying not to get too cheerful too quickly as all this unfolds. But it is wonderful to see the oppo parties finally rise on their hind legs.

    Stand up for Canadians, you guys!
