*Unless that opinion is on my buddy Lawrence Martin, then I DO hold a strong opinion.
Peter Mansbridge had this to say during the Thursday's At Issue Panel on the CBC National when talking about the Maclean's Magazine cover story on Quebec: "I have no opinion. On anything. Nor should I have." (9:40 mark)
Sounds good. As the anchor of a national news broadcast he should do his best to stay neutral, but wait a minute, here is what Mansbridge had to say a few minutes later about Lawrence Martin. "I'll say one thing about the book. 'Laurie' Martin is somebody we all know, and is a heck of a good journalist. People going around today in Ottawa, some people you know saying this isn't true, that isn't true. Ill side with Laurie, because of his credentials on journalism and seen the work he has done." ( 12:00 mark)
If that isn't an opinion, what is Mr. Mansbridge?
