    Unlike some commentators, Warren knows that Prime Minister Harper is quite capable of expressing human warmth. Very classy of you Warren.

  2. WesternGrit says:

    Agreed, WK. Agreed.

    Wow.

    I commend all those who can feel for the pain or misfortune of another. It’s part of being human, even on the Hill.

  5. Derek Lipman says:

    They are all players in the same game, and realize that there are things in life that transcend the petty politics of Ottawa. Of course, we are at a stage in Canada’s democratic experiment that opposite poles can, at times, come together. Moreover, the two parties share the same neoliberal, outward looking vision.

    Politics is a dirty game at times, so it is very refreshing to see most of the comments in favour of the PM’s remarks about former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien.

  7. Carl says:

    Your blog is always a refreshing mix of commentary WK. Some intelligent, some not but at least your not hen-pecking the hell out of the silly comments and instead allowing your contributors to challenge the twits themselves. A far FAR cry to blogs that nag and don’t welcome criticism when it’s due. That’s why I keep visiting here when I can.

    Wonderful that Mr. Chretien’s doing better and that the PM seems to rise to the occasion when he needs to. I believe his sentiments.
