Being an Irish Catholic, and therefore always guilty, it got me thinking. Here I am, today, saying in my Sun column that the Senate scandal could hasten the end of the Harper regime. Haven’t I, you know, predicted their end before?
The Robocall “scandal” was the Mother Of All Scandals, me and others said. It wasn’t, Conservatives said. It was mainly just the work of one or two guys in one riding, they said.
Who was right? Well, it’s been a couple of years, and the robocall scandal still hasn’t toppled the Harper government. And, I note with reluctance, there have been no arrests of dozens of high-level Conservatives in ridings across Canada.
I plan to write more about this, for Sunday’s paper. But, if I’m being honest with myself, I have to admit this much: the robocall scandal really wasn’t.
I will now go say a few Hail Marys and a Glory Be. God bless.
