Are you ready Canada? It starts today and for the Canadian media I expect it to be bigger than Shark week is on the Discovery Channel, and as we all know how BIG that is.
That's right dear readers, you guessed it. This is the start of Ignatieff week for the MSM in Canada as the Liberals hold their so called "leadership convention" this upcoming weekend in Vancouver. No matter that there will be very few in attendance at the convention, or that little policy will be discussed, or even that the leadership and party president positions have long since been decided by the party elite without the input of the grassroots; it is going to be a celebration of all that is Iggy this week and you can be sure that the news media in this country will remind you of this fact again and again as the week progresses to the MSM lead climax next weekend.
If you thought last weeks coverage of a book that the author adamantly denies has anything to do with advancing his political fortunes was excessive; you ain't seen nothing yet.
Remember folks, that's Ignatieff week. You can catch the excitement all of this week on every channel and in every newspaper across Canada.
But hurry, the excitement will not last long as starting the following week reality again returns and the free ride will be over.
Count on it.
