Here We Go Again….

Canadian federal politics, September 2009. Nothing has changed and it is as predictable as ever. I’ll leave it to better writers and political commentators to disseminate all the details, but here is a quick rundown of what’s happened so far in ’09.
1. Canada, and the rest of the world, is in recession
2. Conservatives release a budget that is supported by the Liberals. The NDP are beside themselves
3. Canada starts producing positive economic numbers
4. Having avoided being in power during a recession, the Liberals don’t mind being in power during the recovery
5. Liberals say they can no longer support the government
6. The NDP are beside themselves that the Liberals would want an election so soon after the last one(s).

And some people are aghast at the cynicism and apathy that is leveled towards Canadian politics.
