Today is Day 4 of Ignatieff week in Canada and as I am sure that you are already aware that the entire country is abuzz with talk around the water cooler at work, and the kitchen table at home, about the Liberal convention and Ignatieff.
Day 4 is just no ordinary day during Ignatieff week; it is the day that the MSM have been waiting for for months now as they roll out their big guns for their convention coverage.
Starting today Canadians will get the privilege to watch live as the Liberal Party of Canada spend taxpayer dollars on a lavish leadership convention; a convention where the leader and the party president have both already been chosen by the back room party elite so there is now no need for that pesky democratic vote thing to get in the way of the celebration. During the convention Canadians will also get the opportunity listen to Liberals speaking to half empty rooms not about real policy but about the need to contribute more money to the LPC, while the new Liberal leader who did not contribute ANY money to his own party last year awaits his coronation.
A great day indeed; it almost makes me wish that I was CBC executive so I could sit back and watch the ratings soar as nothing makes for better TV than live coverage of the waste of taxpayers dollars on a needless convention during a recession to audience growing daily with the ranks of the recent unemployed.
