I've got to blog about it, right? The release of the long-anticipated Gomery report is The Biggest News here, so how can I not mention it? Trouble is, I don't have much to say. Just observing.
So Paul Martin was exonerated, but most people don't believe his hands are clean, and the Liberal minority government may be in trouble. Got it.
But what is the alternative? The Conservatives, Bloc and NDP will form an alliance against the Liberals? That seems unlikely, no? Jack Layton especially can't be counted on to do that. Now there'll be an election, but will the results produce a substantially different government?
I write this with much humility, aware of my ignorance, as I have been observing Canadian politics only for about two years, and on this nitty-gritty level, for less than a year. What's more, this kind of politics is not really my thing. I like issues; this is distraction. But I do understand the potential importance of the Gomery findings, so I'm trying to get a handle on it.
What's your take?
