    Merci Canada

  43. mrburnsns says:

    Wow the chief valet and head of hotel security at the Laurier look a lot like two former prime ministers.

    A lot of hating on Mulroney tonight – people forget that these two guys knew how to work Canada’s soft power to do great things. Mulroney was far too trusting of his friends but the most rabid Dipper I’ve ever met said he was a man of his word and an absolute class act. He was wrong about a lot of things (Meech and working for one Mr. Schreiber) – but his impact on history in terms of ending apartheid, dealing with acid rain, and liberalizing trade with the U.S. are substantial accomplishments that will not be remotely equaled by the current government.

    If those two are small town cheap I wish I was more frugal and from a smaller town.

    • The Doctor says:

      Mulroney to my mind remains a very odd duck, a truly paradoxical man — capable of great accomplishments and visionary policy innovations, yet also capable of incredible venality and back-alley sleaze. A testament to the good/evil duality that exists to some extent in all of us, but in Mulroney the duality is amplified to an unusual extent. In that particular respect he’s somewhat Kennedy-like.

      • Village Idiot says:

        I’m ambivalent about Mulroney, probably because of my political persuasion.

        The unfortunate Schreiber affair is a black mark against his character, for sure. But men, human beings, are not angels.

        But he deserves respect, and when he passes away, he should be remembered for his contributions and public service.

    • Ken says:

      1) Shawinigan is not on the North Shore.

      2) Even if it was, what the hell does the North Shore have to do with character flaws? What are these North Shore character flaws?

      • mrburnsns says:

        Wow halfway between Quebec City and Montreal is the hinterland. Is Red Deer the hinterland of Alberta?

        A quick history lesson – Shawinigan was not a small company town even when JC was growing up – if we go back to 1955 when JC was 21 and look at the population of the towns that now make up the City of Shawinigan, the population was at least 1/3 of Calgary or Edmonton at the time (40,000+). Baie Comeau was smaller but was still 4,000 people in 1955.

        Well time for me to get back to my character flaws – apparently since I flew Quebecair a few times as a kid I’m a complete loss to society.
