Stephane Dion was plagued in Quebec by "so-called" senior anonymous, insider, reliable sources throughout his entire tenure as leader. Heck, I even witnessed an anonymous interview firsthand during the Outremont by-election.
Now we have this report coming from the Le Devoir this morning telling us that, once again, the Party of Chretien and Trudeau will be cowering from a confidence vote. Understandable as we learn that only 30 of the 75 ridings actually have candidates ready to go.
I guess my biggest question remains, who are these "reliable sources" in Quebec, and why can't they shut their damn mouths?
The Star concurs with Le Devoir. No election.
The moral of the story is that, even though we have the national media almost entirely on our side, and Stephen Harper has regained all his baby fat, it appears that the OLO is not confident with internal polling numbers, money or the amount of candidates that are in place to run across the country. With only 5 nominations in place across Ontario, that would make sense I guess.
Throw in the fact that The Prime Minister's office has booked an official visit by the Emperor of Japan during what would be the official writ period, and voila, no election. Hello summer break in Parliament. It's almost like they know what's going on in Liberaland before the rest of do. Isn't it?
