Stephane Dion is starting to emerge from under his self-imposed shell. Bold statements like these get headlines. As I told one national co-chair over sushi recently, the Canadian public is just waiting for the guy to tell them something...anything.
He made his mark as a "man of letters". Notorious for writing to Quebecers in letters to the press. It's high time we see that confidence again.
As for Harper? I think this line summed him up in a nutshell:
"He's wielded his power as head of government to attack the state. It's across the board, whether it's the Senate, the Canadian Wheat Board, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, Elections Canada, these are all institutions of the state that he doesn't like."
Truth be told, this Harper guy has been fighting Canadian institutions forever, and he isn't going to stop until they are dismantled.
